Weekend Recap

I had a really nice weekend. Friday after work I picked up my new glasses. I'm still getting use to the way I look in them. I can see much better when driving! What do you think?

I drove to my parent's house and managed to do a few loads of laundry prior to heading to Jenn's house for a Park Lane party.  Have you ever been to one?  I had never even heard of Park Lane prior to this party.  I didn't think I would buy much after browsing online but I was wrong.  The stuff is so much prettier in person.  I ended up buying a few new necklaces and a pair of fun earrings.  If you have read my blog for a while then you know about my addiction to necklaces!  I can't wait for the stuff to come in! {Here's a sneak peak - I got both necklaces on this page!  Don't pay any attention to the prices listed b/c I did not pay anywhere near that}!

I ended up sleeping over my parent's house b/c on Saturday I had a "day date" with Peyton and Ella.  I picked them up and took them to the mall.  We went out to lunch at Bertucci's and the girls loved playing with the pizza dough (even though Peyton kept calling it cookie dough).  After lunch we went into a few stores including Build A Bear and Disney.  Then it was time for the highlight of the year.  We went to Portrait Simple for pictures with a baby bunny.  We did this last year for the first time and it was so much fun.  The girls were so excited to do it again.  They both LOVE the bunnies.  They looked adorable in their new dresses that I found at TJ Maxx for $15 bucks each (love that store).  The pictures came out awesome (as they always do).  Our photographer Meghan does an outstanding job.  She really captures the girls in such a natural way.  I can't wait to share the pics w/ you!  You'll have to wait until I can scan them into my computer though. {But in the meantime here is a sneak peak at the framed collage I bought which was the special}!

By the time I got home on Saturday evening I was exhausted and fell asleep for a 2 hour nap!  I really don't know how people with kids survive with such little sleep.  If I ever have kids I'll have to hire a babysitter so that I can take naps!  Ha!  It is a good thing I love my nieces so much that the exhaustion is worth it!

Sunday was more of a low key date that started out with the usual 4 hours of work.  It was much needed as it seems my wallet was pretty busy this weekend (some new clothes at the outlets, jewelry at Park Lane party, lunch with the girls, pictures. . .)!  After work I went grocery shopping, to church (my thing for lent) and then enjoyed a relaxing evening at home watching the Oscars!

I still have a cold!  So sick of being sick!  By Sunday I didn't have much of a voice.  The funny thing is that I didn't even know until I was at the Dunkin Donuts drive through.  I went to order and could hardly hear myself!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
