Wildcard Weekend – November 14-16, 2014
I just wanted to share with you a brief look at what I did last weekend! I won’t be posting these every week…only at times where I did something of interest over the weekend.
I would LOVE to hear what you did last weekend or are doing this weekend so please comment below. I think it is fun to get to know each other and share in our journey through life.
Friday November 14th
My husband returned from a business trip to Canada with a little surprise for me ~ 2 bottles of my favorite perfume, Christian Dior Diorissimo! While I certainly didn’t need two it was a very kind and welcome gift! Thanks hun…smooch!!
My husband also seems to be hoarding Crown Royal. Every time he goes to Canada he picks up 3 bottles at the duty free shop. I have been stuffing them away in various cupboards but I finally decided to get them all out and put them on the counter so he can see how many he actually has. When I showed him all he said “I’m prepping”. LOL! What is he prepping for…an apocalypse??! And, we only drink a few drinks per month so I think this will last us a lifetime! Ha, ha!
Saturday November 15th
I went to a craft show with my best friend Denise! We always love to go to craft shows at this time of year. You never know what you will find…sometimes we find some great items other times we walk away very puzzled at the inventory, ha ha! I was able to snag this cute pink pearl bracelet someone was selling for just $5. It goes perfectly with this faux pearl necklace I just got…which was such a great deal for only $34…I put the link to it below.
Saturday evening my mom, sister, and I headed up to Soaring Eagle Casino for a night of fun to see “Hunks The Show”, which is a male strip show. We were celebrating my sister’s 50th birthday and were surprising my mom (who is 84 and thought we were just going to gamble…lol!). The show was fun and we bought t-shirts and then had a LONG drive home in snowy and icy road conditions…ugh!
Here are a few pics of my favorite hunk…he looks kind of like Julian from Trailer Park Boys and a little Like Kid Rock!
