Weekend Scenes

And just like that we're already in the middle of December. I got the last of my shopping done for coworkers and our Secret Santa gift exchange on Wednesday and had a pretty relaxing weekend otherwise.

We put together my new bike and took it for a spin. I was joking with K that I need a basket in the back that we can put Lola in but she's wayyy to heavy for that!

In the morning K taught me how to fly the drone in our neighborhood which I learned is a "no fly" zone. Oops!

We left the house to do some errands. I picked up those final gifts for coworkers at Kohl's and went to Ulta to get my free birthday gift ~ The IT Superhero Mascara.

We went for lunch and then stopped at a new brewery in our area called Ellipsis Brewing to sample their beers. I loved their Porter and bought a growler to go!


Their grand opening is not until January 20th but the awesome staff let me get a quick tour of the brewery in the back which they are still building out with new beers and will offer official tours in the new year.

In the evening, I watched Girls Trip which was quite entertaining and the perfect way to cap off the night with some laughs.

I got my craft on in the morning wrapping all the gifts to take to work.

I put Andrea's amazing Stout Beef Stew recipe in the crock pot to cook for dinner and had a very relaxing day at home getting prepared for the work week ahead.

  1. Your wrapped gifts look spectacular! Oh how I want to watch Girls Trip. Your bike!!! Eek, it's so so pretty!! I hope this week gets off to a sweet and festive start my gorgeous friend!

  2. So cool that you guys have a drone - even if you tested it out in a no fly zone LOL!! You're the sweetest co-worker bringing all those gifts in - I totally spaced and forgot that we have our work holiday party today ( that I planned LOL) and forgot to get a gift...so I'm definitely on a time crunch today! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I think a drone would be so fun! Awesome job with the gifts for you work party. They look great.

  5. Can you wrap my gifts? Your gift wrapping is amazing. Oh that is so neat that you all have drone, that is a great picture! Your bike is awesome!! You totally need to get a basket for it.

  6. I didn’t realize that neighborhoods were no fly zones for drones! Visiting that brewery before it was opened sounds like so much fun! I swear breweries and wineries are my happy places!

  7. Love your gift wrapping skills, so festive. Had no idea a neighborhood would be a no fly zone, interesting.

  8. What a fun weekend! Hope you enjoy the week before Christmas!!

  9. OMG I am obsessed with the colors of your new bike!! SO pretty. That's crazy that you have a "no-fly" zone over your neighborhood - who would have thought?!

  10. It sounds like such a nice weekend- I'm sure it was so fun to take your new bike out for the first time. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on that mascara- from the packaging the results look amazing.
