We've had parties to go to every night this weekend and I still have one to attend tonight!
On Friday night, we went to Brocach Irish Pub in Milwaukee to celebrate my friend Kim's birthday! Craig and I both really liked the pub and the menu selection. It was fun to catch up with Kim and our friends Jenny and Tim also came out for the party.
I ran some errands on Saturday morning to Marshall's, Target and Trader Joe's. I was so happy to find some things at Marshall's and then these at Target! Hooray for the new Chobani. I already tried both flavors and they are delicious.
I picked up some new crunchy cookie butter at Trader Joe's. It's really yummy. I like the crunchy over the creamy.
When I got home, I enjoyed my Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie leftovers from Brocach with a clementine. While I ate, I read a sweet thank you note from my friend Laurie.
I was excited to find this blue champion hooded sweatshirt in the mail yesterday. I won it from my local YMCA's facebook page. It's super cozy and warm. I can already tell I will be living in it on weekends and wearing it a ton on walks in the spring and fall.
I had to trade the cozy sweatshirt and put on tights and a dress. Saturday night featured party number two of the weekend--Craig's work Christmas party. It was at a Marriott hotel in the area and turned out really nice. Here's our attempt at getting a self-timed photo together before we left the house.
I had Craig snap one of me in my outfit. I seriously don't love dressing up. It's always such a huge struggle for me to find cute dresses and especially ones to wear in the winter months. I found this one on sale for $40 at Ann Taylor Loft and paired it with a black sweater, black tights and shiny heels.
I better go mop the floors, shower and then start making the cucumber cream cheese tea sandwiches I am bringing to Karis's tea exchange and Downton Abbey party tonight! I can't wait to eat lots of good food, drink some tea, catch up with other local bloggers and watch Season 3's two hour episode!
