Tastefully simple....simply tasteful.

It was a really nice weekend.....

Saturday, my son spent the day with one of his friends - and the rest of us went to a huge craft show in New Hampshire where we bought a beautiful vintage sleigh that's decorated and has lights - as well as a coordinating ice skate to hang from it.  It looks so pretty on my front door - I've wanted one for so long, it was pretty darn exciting for me to get it.  And we had fun in general, just admiring the artisan gifts - and of course, we couldn't help but purchasing some.

Then after, we picked up my son and had dinner at our latest favorite Asian fusian restaurant where we indulged in a little Thai, Japanese and Korean - all in one meal.

Today, we had a basketball game in Gloucester early in the morning and it was such a fun way to start the day!  My son is newer to the sport - and most of his teammates are 3 years into it - and they're so supportive of him.  He really started to come out and feel confident today; he even shot twice, and though he missed, he was pretty darn proud of himself.  They're undefeated so far this season, and let me tell you - this is a really good team.  Even better is that he boys are such good kids, they cheer him on and have really good comraderie.  It's awesome to see.

Then we came home, got ready for some football....I put a pork roast w/ sausage stuffing in the oven, got some pickies together - and then Princess Petunia and I decided to play makeovers.  I put makeup on her and did her hair....and she did mine.  Oh, but were we fabulous!   It was so much fun... truly.

Then, we had company for dinner....and some hard core Monopoly competitions.....and now that we're home alone, it's Christmas special time before bedtime for the kiddies.

Just a good weekend.... I'm really sorry to see it end.
Hopefully just one of many more to come.

Mmmmmmmmm. Pork roast! I haven't made one of those in ages, but it's one of my absolute favorites. Thanks for putting it into my head. I'll have to pick one up this weekend.
