What a busy, fun and rewarding weekend!
My weekend started off with a lonnggg day on Saturday. I woke up in the dark to head off to volunteer for Junior League of St. Petersburg’s Back to School Care Fair.
This is my favorite event of the year as it’s the biggest and the one that has the most community impact. As a league we partner with other organizations, doctors, etc. to put on this event. This event is where children can get free medical exams, dental exams, vision screenings, free backpacks and school supplies, free helmets and helmet fittings and more. Basically, everything kids need to start the school year off right!
It was a successful day and it was great to serve our community as always.
Later that afternoon I headed to my friend Kyle’s bridal shower.
Yummy dirty Shirley Temple!
Kyle got some awesome bridal gifts!
We also played a few games. One of which was Kyle guessing what her soon-to-be-hubby answered on 19 questions. We were supposed to guess how many we thought she’d get right. I won with my guess of 16! These two know each other a little too well…she was basically answering all the questions verbatim of what her boyfriend had answered.
After the shower I got ready to meet my friend Jen for dinner and a movie. We had dinner at BJ’s Brewhouse, which is a bar grill kind of place. It’s kind of like Cheesecake Factory in that they have a ton of variety. And instead of being known for their cheesecake, they’re know for their pizookies! A pizookie is a cookie pizza…basically a hot from the oven cookie in a pan. YUM.
We saw The Way, Way Back, which was really good and I highly recommend seeing.
Sunday was spent sleeping in, cleaning and then spending time with my Mom.
To celebrate I made her doggie cupcakes. She LOVED them and practically ate it in one bite.
This week is pretty low key. Meeting tonight, a few dinners, a dog’s birthday party this weekend…you know, the usual 😉
Seen any good movies lately?
