My Weekend Was...

Lately it seems like I just can't catch up.  No matter how much I chatter on, I'm still behind.  So, another bulleted post is in order:

1.  I won a FABULOUS giveaway from xo Queen Bee xo at Little Me, The Queen Bee.  Do you remember her giveaway posted HERE?  It was a Tervis Tumbler with what else on the front?  Why a BEE of course :)  And I won.  Yippee!  Well, xo Queen Bee xo sent my tumbler along, AND...don't you just know that her little muffin Hairy Winston sent LW a prize as well.  Wasn't that just the sweetest?

2.  Met the "friend" of the doctor.  NOT IMPRESSED.  If she is any indication of Mr. Doctor, I'm not interested.  Next.

3.  Lowcountry boil at Marilyn Monroe's house Friday night.  All I can say about that is YUMMMM...

(Suz & I at the lowcountry boil)

4.  When I got home from the lowcountry boil, Louis had eaten a hole the size of his head in the blinds in the front window of my house.  My CUSTOM blinds.  Hmph.  Bad pups.

5.  Saturday morning trip to Lowe's to attempt to replace CUSTOM blinds.  Found some great flowers on clearance to dress up the patio for the White Party.  I got an even greater discount on my purchases due to the fact that the Lowe's check out girl liked my shoes?  Go figure. 

6.  Smalltown, VA had a wing festival this weekend.  Yes, a buffalo wing festival of sorts.  I hadn't a clue what to expect, but it ended up being quite fun considering I don't really eat buffalo wings ;) 

7.  After the wing festival a group of us headed to an outside restaurant to play Bocce Ball, and enjoy some evening cocktails and supper.  Louis came along, and clearly he is quite the fan of Bocce Ball....

8.  Sunday was a snuggly day on the couch, and a bit of staining of the patio furniture in the evening.  Most excellent Sunday if I do say so myself.

Thank you all for your advice and condolences.  I really thought that perhaps I was overreacting, and that I should just keep trying to be nice.  I realized, thanks to you, that sometimes you really just have to be a B.  Sometimes it's necessary.  BUT...before I do that...I've got one more trick up my sleeve...

I have decided that I am going to introduce the Stage 5 clinger to a friend of mine.  I think they would actually make a great couple.  I can't quite put my finger on it, but he's just a bit much for me.  The introduction will take place at the White Party.  He hasn't a clue, but I'm really, really, really hoping they hit it off :)

Love that we can see your face in that last one!
Louis...bad pooch! Buddy did that when he was a puppy and I was out of the town.
I blame on the ex-boyfriend who wasn't watching him close enough.

What a fun, jam-packed weekend! Thanks for sharing all the pics! :)

I think Louis was disappointed that you didn't take him to the low-country boil.

The Louis <3s Bocce pics are awesome. Big smiles here :-D
I admire your kind approach with Stage 5 Clinger and a potential new date. Don't forget, life's too short to wrap yourself up with people that aren't just right for you (or jobs, or hobbies, or whatever!) You should always be pursuing the road to happiness. I should obviously get better at practicing my preaching, but it still holds true!
Happy White Party prepping!

Aw, Louis is so adorable, even if he did eat through the blinds. :)

Good idea about the clinger...let us know how it goes! And yeah, if Doctor sent his "friend" and she was weird, chances are he is too!!!

Those sausages look kind of funny. Ha.

I told my clinger that I had someone to set him up with. He thought I was joking. Didn't work. Hoping the plan works for you!

Still going to enter the white party. Currently waiting for cable guy to fix internet and using wireless card which is spotty! Takes forever to search pictures!

Sounds like you had a great weekend. Well except for the blind incident but Louis did make it up to you by posing for some excellent pictures.

I didn't really like how the doctor was sending his friend to pre-screen you or whatever. I feel like you can do better than him!!

Looks like a great weekend. And, yay for discounts thanks to cute shoes!!

Awww.... Louis is such a charmer! I love the Bocce Ball Pictures! Boo for ruining the blinds (I can relate..... many a flip flop and book cover has met westie destruction at my place when I am gone ) Looks like he won his way back into your good graces though :) As for the Doctor.... NEXT! If his friends are questionable then he might be questionable. Have a good time planning for your white party!

I Can't believe he ate your blinds!!!!
He is very cute though, so it must be hard to stay mad for too long!
