It's been the most fabulous weekend so far, and I just have to share!!
Thursday, my friend A's friend Carrie (did you catch that?), had a jewelry opening, complete with mini deserts, champagne and gorgeous jewelry!!! Check out some of her amazing pieces at her website.
After that, A and I decided to have Bonus Night of FMRNS!! On Tuesday, we watched Heavy Metal, which was pretty wicked!! The feature for Thursday evening was Bill: On His Own, a made for TV movie from 1983 with Mickey Rooney, Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt. Ok, I have to admit, I was TOTALLY unprepared for this movie. Like when we watch Horror films, A always warns me, so I know that I'm going to be scared and can mentally prepare. He is also kind enough to inform me when the movie is probably going to make me cry. He forgot to warn me. This movie started out attacking my emotions - I was crying within the first 10 minutes. And it didn't let up. It was seriously one of the most emotional movies we've seen in a long time, and it truly lived up to it's fabulous reputation. If you ever get a chance to see this movie, please do. It was incredibly touching, and I am so grateful that I have now seen it.
Friday was a day spent shopping. I HATE shopping - like, with a passion. But my DH was kind enough to put up with me as we went to store after store. First looking for a suit to wear to my interview in Minnesota nest week (which we found, and it's AWESOME! We found it at Ashley Stewart), and later looking for shoes to go with it (which we didn't find...booo!). It was a looooooooooong day of shopping, and we made it through. I collapsed on the couch when we got home, and instantly fell asleep!
Saturday was the most fabulous day yet!! My amazing DH gave me the best surprise!!! My baby took the time to set up my appointment with my favorite stylist for 'cut, color, and more!' I now have FAB new hair (I'm now a hot red head!). He also surprised me with a facial, which I have never had done before. It was the most amazing experience - SOOOO relaxing!!! It was a 'congratulations' gift for graduating with my Masters in Library Science from UNT - he'd just been waiting to spring it on me until now because of our upcoming trip to Minnesota, and my interviews and conference coming up!! So, we have consideration, thoughtfulness, AND strategy!! What a guy!!!
Ohh, ohh, and I found shoes to go with my suit!!! WHOOOOOOT!!!!
I'm excited to have one more day off!! It'll be spent cleaning and doing laundry in preparation for our upcoming trip, but it's all good!!
