Working for the Weekend

I don’t know about everyone else, but around here we definitely look forward to our weekends!

This past week was no different from any other week, except for the fact we had actual weekend plans.  Not just a play it by ear thing.

Friday night was movie night.  It was a no brainer for the GRITS group:

I’m not ashamed by the fact we L-O-V-E some HSM and, for us, this one was just as good as the first two.  And who can complain when you’ve got a 20ft Zac Efron on the screen.  Ahem.  So, if you haven’t seen it, you must go!  And don’t forget the Milk Duds to go with your Coke Zero.

 

Saturday, I went with a couple of friends to a local event called Merry Market sponsored by our local Junior League.  It was my first time to attend and there were so many vendors with a lot of cute items.  But it was a bit too, as I say, “chez froo-froo” for me.    I just can’t justify spending more on an outfit for my 7 year old than I would on myself.  I guess I am cheap like that.  I like to think of it as practical.  Anywhoo.

However, here’s my favorite purchase, a ceramic polka dot Alabama Christmas ornament that looks like the one shown in the photo below, which was taken by my bloggy friend Leigh over at Tales from Bloggeritaville.

And what exactly do you think we were doing at 2:30 Saturday afternoon???  Must you ask.

LS-who?

Ok, I’m done rubbing it in.  I can’t control myself.

 

The GRITS kids learned to work for their food this weekend when our pecan tree began dropping pecans from its branches like manna from Heaven. 

The kids spent the better part of Saturday morning collecting nature’s goods.  And they’ve spent the better part of the weekend enjoying the “fruits” of their work.  Lego-Man is still holding out for a pecan pie.  I’ll get right on that.  In a minute.

We topped our super fantabulous weekend off with a little dippin’ tonight.  A little chocolate, some fruit and *poof* instant gratification for all involved.

Hope you all had a great weekend and just remember there are only 5 more days until Friday!  Everybody’s working for the weekend……

I am so glad you got your ornament! It is so pretty! I need to go back and get one for my kid, Bama. Every year I buy them an ornament so that when they leave the nest one day they will take their ornaments with them.


Those strawberries look divine! Have mercy on me, here!


And pecans! How lucky are you to have one of those trees! Its gold. Gold! Oh, call me when you serve pecan pie, k?


I was in Ttown on Friday and thought of you. I wish we could meet up sometime. I will email you my "digits" so if you come into town you can call me.
