What a weekend! If you lived in or near the Charlotte area, then you know what I’m talking about! 🙂
NOTE: Besides a recap of the weekend, this post will be a slight phone dump of pictures I took each day. My new love Instagram did not disappoint. 😉
Cody & I went for a quick run to enjoy the beautiful 60 degree weather.
That evening I met some friends for dinner and a drink. Very authentic Italian started off the evening with this:
I drove in to Gastonia to help a family member with some home recommendations. They are putting their house on the market in a few weeks; we talked about clearing out some extra stuff to make the home appear more luxurious. 🙂 Then it was lunch for my mom’s birthday! 🙂
The snow started to fall (Oh Em Gee!) and I realized I needed to book it back to Charlotte. It was a long stressful ride back home which included 2 traffic jams and a lot of this:
Once back, I changed clothes and joined Raymond & Cody outside. It was picture taking time! Cody was none too happy.
I thoroughly enjoyed our Winter Wonderland.
Raymond and I came in and relaxed the rest of the evening. I was exhausted and so glad he didn’t go to work. See, us Southerners aren’t that great at driving in snow and ice. 😉
We took Cody for a walk in the melting snow. BTW … who on earth wears cowboy boots in the snow? Bad idea!
Raymond wanted to take some pictures so we had a photographer standoff! 😉
I kindly asked Raymond if he would go with me to IKEA. Their President’s Day Sales were awesome but I really only wanted the GORM shelving unit … and at a $20 discount!
He wasn’t thrilled but said yes … then I asked if he would drive. Tricky little girl. 🙂
I’m not great with crowds … much less anxious bargain crazy crowds. We were greeted with that exact scene and Raymond went hiding. I was left to fend for myself against the mob and was successful! This craziness happened — we had to ride home with the window down.
Hey, I’ve done crazier things in my car. 😉
Home we came, I put together both GORM’s … reorganized the storage closet … went grocery shopping … put together the LAIVA unit for my bathroom … shopped for baskets for the LAIVA … made dinner … cut my finger … broke an entire $10.99 6-pack of beer at Total Wine with my big badonka booty … and froze like nobody’s business all the while.
So I now ask … what did you do this weekend? 🙂
Until next time…
