weekend festivities...

My weekend started Thursday night with a fabulous date night with the hubby. We watched Mission Impossible 4 (which was awesome) while drinking way too much soda for a work night. It was perfect.

Friday night we had a Christmas party with our community group, although this photo is missing our lovely host and hostess, and Lance (he's taking the pic). Christmas parties are the best... if I could eat veggie trays, cookies and peppermint bark for dinner every night, I would be oh-so-happy.

And I mean, come on... any party where you have to wear a name tag is bound to be awesome. Our hosts also had several of their neighbors at their party... so there was lots of different circle groups crossing, hence the name tags.

And any party that ends in karaoke is truly deemed epic, no doubt.

Saturday was a little more low-key with some sleeping in, laundry and house cleaning. Then we headed over to our friend's house, John and Allie, for some yummy chili.

And no dinner at the Crew's would be complete without dessert... so little John Marshall headed into the kitchen to whip us up some cookies.

Sunday was even more low-key than Saturday... I finished the last little bit of my Christmas shopping, actually started on my December Daily book for this year, and made some of our traditional Texas Trash chex mix.

This weekend was the perfect combination of socializing and restoration... absolutely perfect. Can you believe that Christmas is only 6 short days away!?!?
