This was one of those whirlwind weekends. Seems like I ran non stop the entire weekend. I’m hooking up with Bon Bon Rose Girls for Monday Mingle. I wore:
Gray Shirt: Sears Sweater: Thrifted Pants: Gap Shoes: Gap
*yes, my ankles are ashy…and?*
Blazer: Thrifted Orange Sweater: Thrifted Gray Shirt: Thrifted
Jeans: Marshalls Shoes: Sole Society Scarf: Etsy
Friday kicked off everything with dinner at Tin Lizzy’s with the Atlanta Tastemaker Magazine crew. For those of you new here I am a beauty contributor for the online magazine…Go subscribe. It was great to get together and meet everyone because we mostly operate via email and never get to see one another.

Food was great. Can't you tell
My son had his first basketball game so we got up early to head out to the gym. If you follow me on Twitter you may have caught my tweet that I feel bad for him because this is his first year playing and you can surely tell his lack of skills compared to those who played last year.. He is trying really hard and that’s all I want him to do.
Getting a pep talk from dad.
Got home from the game, checked the Twitter and saw a tweet from one of my favorite fashion bloggers Eboni over at Fashionista Next Door that she was at the outlet not far from my house. Seeing I needed to get some Christmas shopping done, I tweeted back that I would meet her down there. I got a bonus, because she was shopping with another one of of my fashion blog reads Prissy, over at Rush Our Fashion. We hung out for a bit and shopped.

I had to head home to meet my husband so we could head down to the Botanical Gardens to meet two of our favorite families for Garden of Lights. We all had scooped up a Groupon a few weeks ago to take the children to see the lights. The children had a great time. It was a bit chilly but not unbearable. The children had a ball. That’s all that matters.
This was beautiful.
So pretty in real life
Picture does this no justice. This was beautiful
FAMU..McGuinn Hall...3rd floor..#wedidthat Now we're Mamas
Awww..look at the dads! They rock!
We left there and headed out to Flip for some dinner. This place has the best food..not to mention a Krispy Kreme milkshake. I know this picture is blurry but I just love what a great dad he is.
My husband is all kinds of awesome #thatisall
Sunday I cooked some beef stew in the crockpot and laid around. I got a call from a friend of mine named Niki. She lives in New York and is a hair stylist to the stars. I never get to see her because she is bi coastal so whenever her work leads her here I stop what I’m doing to see her. She was here working with Brandy for a taping of The Game. I didn’t know Brandy was going to be a new addition to the Game *shrugs* She was doing hair so no photo ops.
How was your weekend? Did you see an old friend, or eat out, or have a drink, or go shopping? Was it low key, and relaxing? I’m nosy. I want to know.
