{Weekend Recap}

{Friday Night}

We went to Applebees with two of our friends for dinner and drinks.

{Taking pictures before heading out, of course}

{Self car picture on our way to dinner}

{I had the most delicious White Peach Sangria}

After dinner we drove to Turning Stone to win big. We had a blast and Sean left $300 richer. Birthday luck. After he won he would not stop moving his hands. Not sure why.


{See what I told you about the hands}



{I didn't win but I had a blast}


{Saturday}


Went shopping with my sisters. Had dinner at our favorite Indian restaurant and then saw The Vow. I have to admit that I left watching the movie a bit disappointed. I was expecting a lot more. I left wanting more. Sucks because we were looking forward to watching it for a while.

Finally wore my Hunters for the first time. I decided that rain or no rain I was going to wear it. Love them. And I wore the cowl that my dear blog friend Michelle knitted for me as a Christmas gift. I said that I would post a picture when I wore it so Michelle here it is! I love it!

{Loving my Hunters and my iPhone, although I still have not signed up for an iTunes account to get apps. Yea, I'm insane. Actually just lazy}



We took pictures in the car on our way to the restaurant :)



{And then some at the restaurant. This restaurant isn't the prettiest {and if it wasn't for a friend's recommendation, I never would have eaten there} but the food is amazing, like, lick your plate amazing}


{Food}







With all the running around we made it to the movie theatre with 3 minutes to spare before the movie began. And we left disappointed. So I made up for it by selecting Water for Elephants for us to watch before bed. They loved it :)

This afternoon, before my sisters left we went to Target. Target was having an amazing sale so we each picked up a few things and I bought this book.

I am so excited to start reading it!


p.s. My sisters and I found out about Whitney's death before heading to the movie last night and to say that it put a damper on things is a bit of an understatement. We loved Whitney growing up and would have singing contests at home to see who could sing her songs better. I was hoping for her comeback because a person with a powerful voice as she had, deserved a comeback. It is sad that a talent such as hers no longer exists.

Jenna said...

Absolutely LOVE your outfit with the cowl and Hunter boots! I have the same exact pair of Hunters and love them so much. Hooray for your husband winning that money!!! Very exciting, especially on his birthday :)

I have heard many people say "The Vow" was disappointing. Definitely makes me reconsider seeing it!

Love Jones said...

Food looked amazing! Enjoying your blog more & more!

Michelle said...

SWEET! Loving the cowl on you- looking fabulous as usual ;) It's so exciting seeing you wear it (I have no idea why, just is)! The whole outfit is dynamic.

What a lucky duck Sean is winning that $ (and crazy hands pics- too funny)!

Aly @ Analyze This said...

You seriously have the best taste in clothes! I love your black boots in that first picture! Adorable!!

And the Sangria drink from Applebee's - so good! I was surprised, actually! I thought t was going to be weak ... nope!

Married...with a Pup said...

I have to totally agree with you...Whitney had a serious one-of-a-kind voice. Such a sad loss! BUT, your weekend looked amazing! I'm sad to hear The Vow wasn't as good as it looked!

Gina said...

love them tall black boots girl!

Christine said...

Sounds like such a fun weekend! And I love your outfits! So so cute. and I am so jealous of your adorable hunters {which I LOVE paired with those red socks}!

Brittany said...

In love with your outfits! You are so beautiful, Faith! Looks like y'all had a fabulous weekend...minus the Whitney news. We were heartbroken too.

Amy said...

OMG I can't wait to see the Hunger Games when it comes out in theaters next month. The trailer for it looks amazing!

Nancy said...

Oh Faith, Logan will be so excited that you are reading the Hunger Games. He has read all 3 books, twice. He even bought a special Hunger Games edition @ Target on Saturday night that recaps the movie/book. He has it finished :) I think you will LOVE the books.
You have great outfits on all weekend! I wish you could go shopping with me! Teach me some things!
Happy Valentine's Eve!!
SOOOO sad about such a beautiful, talented, amazing singer ~ RIP Whitney Houston! I grew up with her songs, too & they are not even comparable to anyone else!

Rocker Chic said...

Faith you and Sean are tooooooooo cute. Happy birthday Sean. I love how you wore your boots so cute. I went to see The Vow too and I was expecting more I dk I guess they decided to stay true to the real story just my guess.

Tenecia said...

I loved both of your outfits! You have great style!!!

And put The Hunger Games away!!! There are better books out there to read! ;)

*I actually read The Hunger Games..I'm only 65% serious about putting it away...lol...

Terrianne, Call me Ree said...

It sounds like you had a great day! You look super adorable. I want to start reading that book myself. I will. I've put it off for too long.

I haven't seen "Water for Elephants" but I loved the book.

Life is so fragile. I was 19 when I lost my Mom at age 42 to chronic substane absue and AIDS. I know Whitney is safe now and I pray for her daughter. =(

Carlie said...
