Weekend Recap & A Request

Hello lovelies! I hope that everyone had a great weekend. I know I definitely did!

Before I get into what I did this weekend, I wanted to ask you guys a favor. Some of you may know Katie from Keep Calm & Carry On. If you don't, you should go check out her blog. She always has amazing posts and she is just such a great person. Well today on her blog, she shared a story about a little girl that is battling cancer. All I am asking of you guys is that you go read the post. If you want to help out and donate, that's great. If not, that is fine too. It is really up to you. I just want more people to read Maggie's Story(click here) and possibly share it with others!

Friday night was pretty uneventful. We made dinner and then sat on the couch and watched Christmas movies. Christmas Vacation to be exact! It is not Christmas without watching Christmas Vacation!

Saturday I woke up and got myself ready for the day and headed out to a couple of craft fairs with my friend Megan and her Mom. I found a couple of Christmas items for the house. I forgot to take a picture though, so I will do that tonight and share them in my Christmas decorations post tomorrow!

After the craft fairs, my amazing Brother came over and fixed our washer! Thanks big bro! We aren't quite sure what is wrong with it, but it hasn't been spinning all of the water out, but whatever he did, it is working now! 

After he fixed our washer, he headed home to go get my Nieces and SIL so we could meet them Downtown for the Festival of Lights Parade. It wasn't very cold, so it was really nice to actually go see the parade this year. We had a lot of fun even though it was really really crowded.

On a side note, we were sitting in the parking garage after the parade waiting to get out of there and the lady that was parked next to us went to go get into her car and opened her car door right into the side of my car. She saw us sitting in the car and didn't even say anything. Really lady? I was so pissed. I mean my car is kind of a P.O.S. but still, it is all that I have right now! And seriously, who does that?!

Anyway, after we finally got out of the parking garage, we went back to my Brothers to hang out for a little while. My 3 month old Niece and I watched football together while everyone else had dinner. She apparently really likes watching it because you turn it on and she calms down. It was pretty funny! But what can I say, we are teaching her early!

Sunday we actually did quite a lot. I got up early again and got ready for the day. I went grocery shopping and ran a few other errands while the Hubby went to Home Depot to get a few things that we needed. Once we were both home we finished hanging our outside Christmas lights. Again, I forgot to take a picture. I will show you that tomorrow as well. 

After that, my friend Megan and her Husband came over to help us go pick out our Christmas Tree. They have a truck and offered to help us get our tree home so that we wouldn't have to go all Griswold style and strap it to the roof of our car. 

We went to the Tree Nursery and picked out the PERFECT real Christmas Tree! The Nursery even cut it and loaded it into the truck for us. We got it home, put it in the stand and put it in the living room and then commenced decorating it. 

I don't want to show you the finished product yet because I want to put that in tomorrow's post as well! But the tree turned out so great. As most of you know I had been debating on whether or not to do a theme tree. After discussing it with the Hubby, we decided not to. As much as I loved the idea, we didn't want to go spend more money to buy all new ornaments. And not only that, but we wanted to be able to put all of our memory ornaments up and we really love all of the ornaments that we picked out together. 

Well, that was my weekend in a nutshell. I hope that you guys had a great weekend and I hope that you have a very quick week ahead of you so that you can enjoy another weekend. And again, please go read Katie's post about sweet Maggie. Even if all you can afford to donate is your thoughts and or prayers, it would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day everyone!
