End of Week/ Weekend

So first of all I have to give a big a big shout- out and thank you to Katy (and Clay) at Tripping Down The Aisle for the Halloween treats she sent me this past week!

I won a giveaway on her blog back in the spring and the lady got busy so there was a delay in shipment. Imagine my surprise when I got home Thursday and I had these yummy Halloween treats waiting for me!

She sent me her favorites and believe me: they're my favorites too! Reese Cups and Hershey Bars? Yes please!

Excuse my terrible hair and all day work face. I was not even trying to look cute after my long work day!

Speaking of work I wanted to share with you one of the best parts of my job:

Meet Sylvester: He's a two year old long hair black and white kitty cat who lives in my office.
He's my community's first floor cat (we have another on the second floor named Simon). His food, water, and potty are in my office and I'm the one who nursed him healthy when he got to our community as a baby with a cold - so he's pretty much mine- and I love him!

He likes to sit on my desk right in front of the key board when he needs some extra lovins'.

He helps keep the stress levels down. I mean whats not awesome about petting a lovely kitty during a heinous work day?

Friday, as I mentioned before Ma Mere came for dinner on Friday night and I did end up fixing steaks. They, and the rest of the dinner turned out well. Mom came bearing gifts: two new shirts and some girly memo notes and stayed a few hours to eat and hang out a little bit.

Saturday I got up early and hit the thrift store. I didn't find what I was looking for- but I did find 6 gently used sweaters for $17.00! I'm not proud- I LOVE thrifting!

I then hit TJ Maxx (nothing) and like every store in the mall (1 shirt from Ann Taylor) and had lunch with Boo before returning home to do some cleaning and get ready for a Pure Romance Party at my friend Ashley's house.

I spent way too much money at the party and drank too many bubblegum vodka cocktails and jell-o shots but I feel pretty good today so it all works out.

Below are the pictures I took after the Pure Romance party was over and our sig. others joined us for Apples to Apples and Rock Band. It was a blast.

(Me at the party - I need my roots done BAD!!!)

(Megan- love her new post-wedding hair)

(Ashley- the party host with her eyes wide open- because her eyes are always closed in pictures!)

(Boo and Me)

(Two things come to mind when I look at this picture: boobies and buzzed: both me)

(Just Us Gals)

(The Newly Weds)

(The Soonly Weds(ROOTS!!! UGH!))

(And Finally Megan and Me With Ashley's Husband Seth)

Today Boo and I slept in (well 10 am is sleeping in isn't it?). Then we parted ways to run our Sunday errands: he to Little Ceasar for cheap game day pizza. Me to fill up my car's gas tank, Starbucks for a Peppermint Mocha (<3>

Fun weekend!! And I know you say you need your roots done, but I really dig your hair...the color looks good, the style is awesome! I wish mine would have body like that! And I'd love it if a furry friend came to play at work at my office!!

That cat is so cute! :) I would love to bring my babies to work with me...I am sure my attitude would be better!

Glad you had a good weekend!

That box of Halloween treats looks so delish! Looks like ya'll had a really fun weekend!

Hope your Monday is just as fabulous!

I love your blonde color! It's so pretty. My hair is dirty blonde and I'm thinking of going a little lighter next time, but that seems kinda weird in winter! Oh well, :)
