Have A Reflective Weekend


Happy Friday, everyone! What do you all have on tap this weekend? Ideally I would love to have a leisurely, relaxing, reflective weekend but that's not my reality this weekend. I'm hosting Thanksgiving for J's family on Sunday and our nephew who's in college is coming to stay at our apartment Saturday night so it's work, work, work all weekend long.

No complaints though. It'll be well worth it to spend time with family and to eat some delicious food. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and this year I'll get to eat the meal twice! Once with J's family and then with mine on Thursday. Lucky me! I might not be feeling too lucky on Friday though when I have to get into a bathing suit on vacation. Oh well, it's a time to be plentiful, right? :)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Have a nice weekend! Mine will be busy with attending a birthday party and then some shopping for Thanksgiving but I think I would try to make it a reflective weekend as well.

mm... i love that cracked mirror look.

shari @ little blue deer said...

I bought my first old lady swimsuit this year, a black strapless one-piece with a little skirt, it had the wonderful dual effect of looking retro chic AND it allowed me to chow down while on vacay! XX!

Marie said...

Busy weekend for you lady, I give you so much credit for cooking a Thanksgiving dinner, very impressive... We try to do the same last year but ended up ordering half of it from Wholefoods (yes we're cheaters) :) Don't worry about the bathing suit and enjoy your 2 Thanksgiving :) Have a great weekend xxx

PS: the cracked mirror is GORGEOUS

Id love to just lay around all weekend as well. My house is clean, which is nice so I am going to try to mantain that as well as go to a hockey game. I am also hoping to get some blogging done and maybe a little writing... we will see.
