Hope your weekend was well. Can you believe we are headed into the last week of February? Time is surely waiting on no one.
This weekend we hosted a Disney Side party at our house and Addison was in complete “Turn Up” mode! Although she knew it wasn’t her birthday you would’ve thought it was by the way she was acting.
We hosted about 12 children and their fab moms at our home for an afternoon of fun and all things Disney.
The children played games and did a few Disney crafts
It just so happens that a few of our guests will be visiting Disney this summer including us so we headed to the basement to watch the Disney vacation planning video. Unfortunately the adults couldn’t hear because the children were screaming in excitement at the Disney characters on the video.
After they were done with the movie they headed back upstairs for more playing and fun….and cupcakes.
…..and you know a party “ain’t” a party until the adults get in on the fun
What an awesome time celebrating with friends and learning more about Disney and what it has to offer. I am hype about our trip to Disney this year. I’ll have to go back and watch the video to make sure I get some tips. I’ll be sure to share them with you.
Anybody else headed to see Mickey Mouse this year?! Did you have cupcakes this weekend?! How was your weekend?
*I was provided products to host the party. All opinions are my own. You.Already.Know*
Unless you’ve been under a rock, last week the entire city of Atlanta was crippled unnecessarily by a mere two inches of snow.
I’ll spare you the details because I’m pretty sure the lack of resources, thousands of people that were left sleeping in cars on area interstates and children slumbering at their desks overnight has crossed your timeline or TV screen so I’ll start with the thaw out.
This weekend as the ice finally melted and the city came back to life I was happy to venture out of the house after being iced in for nearly a week to attend my first Metro Atlanta Founders Day (MAFD). MAFD is a luncheon where all of the local chapters of AKA get together to honor our founders. Had a great time seeing faces I knew and meeting a few new people.
All of my line sisters except for two.
This weekend I also volunteered to keep my friend’s children so her and her husband could go off for a weekend getaway. While I was gone having lunch and fun the Mr. was at home with 4 small children. I came home expecting him to be frazzled but he was holding things down. As soon as my toe hit the threshold it became a barrage of Mommy I need this, Miss Mimi can we…..Y’all know I love the kids so I came in and took over.
This weekend was also spent so called putting the last touches on the laundry room until I took down the bar light in the ceiling and realized that two gaping holes were staring back at me. Like two big eyes. After much debate and the reading of many horror DIY tales on the interwebs I had some what comfortably come to a decision that I wouldn’t take on scraping the popcorn off the ceiling…until yesterday. I mean if it has to be patched, sanded and painted to hide those holes may as well scrape…right? I sure hope this turns out well. It’ll be a few more weeks before the reveal.
I’m sorry, I’m sure you care.
How was your weekend? Any snow where you are? Are you ready for Spring? I know I am.

This weekend was rather busy. A sick child derailed my plans to complete a service project for Habitat for Humanity with my Sorors on Monday. Poor thing, he got struck with the infamous stomach virus that has made its way around. I thought we were in the clear but apparently not.
Friday evening my SIL came in town with her besties to look for a wedding dress. They ventured down to Bridals by Lori as in “Say Yes to the Dress.” Unfortunately I was unable to attend because I had already committed to helping out with a fundraiser my chapter was having for our Debutantes. She found her dress and it is GORGEOUS and I had a great time with my line sisters.
Saturday evening I was scheduled to attend some events but my husband needed to use the car and I was just plain tired. At some point everyone laid down for a nap and I awoke while they were still sleeping. I used that very RARE and precious time to spend some time alone comfy on my couch watching a Cosby Show Marathon. Sometimes it truly is the small things. It only lasted about 2 hours but it felt like an eternity.
Sunday, I woke up early and placed some dinner in the crock pot. My SIL and her besties were headed out again to find bridesmaids dresses. My SIL is one of those people that managed to master the makeup videos on YouTube and while she was “beating” her own face I asked for a slight “beat” and she obliged.
My Chapter was hosting a Sisterly Relations activity at No Mas Cantina, a local Mexican restaurant downtown for some fellowship and food. After I was all made up I headed out to No Mas. I looooooove my Line Sisters. WE take advantage of all opportunities to take photos!
Sunday evening, I made it home and relaxed, and had movie night in the theater with my SIL and her friends. Finally watched The Butler. What an awesome movie.
So, that was my weekend. Did you make Monday a “day off” or a “day on?” How was your weekend? Has that nasty virus found its way to your house?
This weekend was kind of busy. After spending an ungodly amount of time indoors due to illness and the weather I was happy to be out and about this weekend.
We kicked off the weekend with a little family time at the bowling alley
We had some pizza and had a good time with a little family competition
Saturday morning AKA duty called and I headed out to a forum we had regarding Human Trafficking. I think my mouth was open the whole time listening to the statistics. I signed up to volunteer with an agency in the Atlanta area that is working to help girls who want to escape that life. I am going to do a post regarding this issue. Our poor children are getting caught in terrible lives that they don’t have to live. I feel its our duty to help where we can. More to come on that.
Saturday evening I had dinner at Tin Lizzy’s with Bunnie. I love Bunnie, she is just I don’t know. I can’t put my finger on it but she rocks….One time for that margarita and queso that I’ve been craving for months, they were just as good as I needed them to be.
Sunday I went grocery shopping. I am the worse grocery shopper ever. For the past few months my husband has been doing the shopping but because we are down to one car and I had chapter meeting I got up early and took care of my least favorite task.
Shortly after getting all of the groceries in place and cleaning out the refrigerator I was back out the door to chapter meeting. Came home to him cooking dinner. *body rolls* I was in peace and quiet when the Shameless premiere came on.
There. That’s my weekend.
How was yours? Did you grocery shop, clean, sew, read? Do you watch Shameless? Is your week planned out?
