Back on Track

Grab a seat and let me catch you up on my life :) 

Now, let's see here....

I told you that I came back from San Antonio.  I told you about my Vitamin D deficiency.  I told you that I went to Charlotte, but I didn't get to tell you much about it.  Okay, let's start there.

1.  I went to Charlotte, NC to visit The Cheerleader.  She moved there this summer, and it was my first trip to see her.  Much fun!  Much fun!  We went out Friday night to places all over town.  Couldn't tell you where, but it was fun.

(Daisy, friend, me, friend, The Cheerleader)

On Saturday we watched the Virginia Tech/UNC game at BlackFinn.  There were a BUNCH of Hokie fans there, and the game was fantastic!! 

(my new "friend" in Charlotte.  he had us cracking up all afternoon.)

The other amazing thing about my trip to Charlotte is that I got to meet a fellow blogger!!  Dee from Dee's Adventures joined us out at BlackFinn for a few drinks.  She is absolutely precious, and I am so thankful that she took the time to come out to meet us!!  Thanks Dee.  Can't wait to see you again soon :)

2.  We got back from Charlotte on Sunday evening, and I went on a date.  Yep.  A date.  We had a lovely dinner, and then went to see Due Date.  It was hysterical.  Absolutely hysterical.  I laughed so hard that I cried.  On more than one occasion.  Seersucker Suit Movie Review coming soon!

3.  Monday was cold and rainy, and I just wanted to stay in and be a lazy bones.  I also wanted comfort food.  (I had better watch out!  All of this comfort food is going right to my hips!).  We decided to make Homemade Chicken Pot Pies.  Mmmmm....

(hmm...where oh where is my ball?  could it be under here?)

(there it is!  hmmm...what bad pup chewed on mummy's table?  what a bad pups he must be!)

(EGADS!  this ball lights up!)

(the finished product!!  tasty, tasty, tasty.  Louis even had a puppy pot pie.  he is a definitely a fan.)

4.  Wednesday was cooking class at MY house.  We made Texas Chicken Lasagna.  I decorated a bit in honor of the occasion, and the girls wore their cowboy hats.  I don't have one, so I wore a sombrero.  That kindove makes sense...doesn't it?

(my little pony miniature piñata)

(Mexican flag...somewhat appropriate for Texas.  No?)

(the three amigos)

(Louis was scared of our hats.  i'm not exactly sure why?  but he was traumatized.  all evening long.)

(the finished product.  mouth watering, if i do say so myself!)

(is this night over yet?  i am scared out of my wits!)

I finally had to put Louis in his crate, where he promptly fell asleep.  Poor little muffin.  The hats were just too much for him to handle :(

5. Thursday night was our Little Black Dress Party for the non-profit I support here in Smalltown, VA.  I told you I wasn't wearing a dress...and I didn't :)  I wore this fabulous little black romper, and I was sooooo comfy.  It was incredibly chilly out, and the romper kept me quite warm.

The night was a huge success....until....Daisy's purse was stolen!!!!  It was terrible :(  We went upstairs at the venue and watched the tapes.  We saw the two girls walk right up and lay their coat on Daisy's purse.  We saw them look through Daisy's purse, and then walk of with it.  The police have been notified.  They have the video.   Fingers crossed the find the girls that did it.  Because those tacky little girls have caused a total upheaval in Daisy's life.  They have her cell, her camera, her credit card, her Visa Check, her driver's license, her house key..... You get the point.  She had to change her locks on Saturday.  She's getting by with her checkbook and passport.  But it stinks.  Like really, really stinks. 

**UPDATE** I've just gotten word from Daisy that one of the tacky little thieves paid for her drink with a credit card.  Not Daisy's!!  So, unless she stole someone else's purse (which I suppose is completely possible), we will be able to locate her.  FINGERS CROSSED!

6.  Friday night I was exhausted from Thursday night's events.  So, I decided to make a cupcake cake (yes, again...) for C's birthday festivities on Saturday night.  Since I had the basic cake design down (FINALLY), I decided to get a little bit fancier.  And it worked!!!  Wahoo!!!  I will admit that I had a little bit of help.  But not much (hehehe...)

7.  Saturday night was C's birthday.  It was so much fun!  Dance Party USA took place, and Daisy taught C how to do the "Stayin Alive" dance.  Hysterical!

Sunday consisted of naps on the couch, and Chinese take out for supper.  Just what the doctor ordered!  I think I'm finally recuperated.

AND....we are now caught up.  Just in time for me to go home for Thanksgiving :)

Oh my goodness! That is absolutely horrible about your friend's purse. Hoping she gets this taken care of soon. Please tell Daisy to contact all three credit bureaus if she hasn't already done so. My mother's purse got stolen when I was in middle school, and the people used it to open credit cards in her name and run up thousands of dollars of false charges. It was awful.

Holy shiznat that was a recap! Look at you little miss cook!! Those pot pies look fantabulous! Are you coming here for the ACC Championship in a few weeks?
If nothing else to party? We can hang again!
We're having a big party!

Holy moly!! No wonder you haven't had time to blog! Looks like you've been having lots and lots of fun. And, I so want to cook/bake with you...

And, yes. More details on the date, please!

Sounds like you have been busy but having a lot of fun. I hope they find those purse-stealing girls.
Tell us more about this date! Will there be a second date?
I love Apothic Red, what did you think of it

Ann said...

Never a dull moment for you is there :)

MCW said...

You have been BUSY!
Was the date with the same person you made the pot pies with????????????

Bronwen said...

Who steals a purse at a CHARITY event? seriously.

Kassie said...

This is quite the recap!! So many things to comment on, but I guess one is who steals a purse, at a charity event???

Caroline said...

I would just like to tell you that I love love love how much fun you have, and how busy you seem to stay. I know Smalltown isn't exactly a booming metropolis, but I think it's amazing that you take advantage and you make your own fun as well. Things I definitely need to work on.

And BOO on tacky thieves!!!! I'm glad you had the video and I hope they get caught.

TudorCity Girl said...

Sorry about your friend's purse..Awful.
My gosh- what a catch up!! I need to take lessons from you on how to have more fun in life. You really know how to live.
Congrats on getting the cupcake cake down-- that cake came out fab!! And those chicken pot pies look amazing.. Yum.

Yes, do tell about the date!

And I hope the purse thief is caught very soon. May karma come their way!
