Five on Friday

It has been a hot moment since I have linked up, but I figured what better day than now? Especially since one of my favorites, Christina over at Carolina Charm, is hosting one.
Five on Friday!
One:  Last weekend, one of my friends was celebrating her 30th birthday. For the most part, all of my friends have either turned 30, or are turning 30 this year. I'm one of the last one's in December (short of a couple youngin's in the group), so it was fun to get the celebrations started. Naturally, I needed to use this as an excuse to bake. And being the good example that I am, I had to show that my dinner Friday night consisted of raw cookie dough and champagne. Because... why not?!
Two: Saturday was the celebration. We met around 11:00 AM (with me being late as always, ugh!) and jumped in the Limo (part of her Hub's birthday present) and headed to a winery. We stopped and grabbed lunch first, and then headed to where it looks like every other person in the world planned on going. We opted to skip the tour (since most of us had already been on it) grab some wine and some snacks from the limo and chat. It has been a LONG time since we had some day drinking and it was great to catch up with these fabulous ladies!

Three: Alex and I had talked about how we needed to get whatever we could out of the garden by Saturday night since our first frost was predicted. So... being the stubborn person I am, deciding since I started the garden I was going to finish it, I did it. Saturday night. In the dark. With a flashlight. Drunk. Yeah...but, I was successful and we got a whole bunch of stuff! Now, just waiting (hoping) that they ripen!

Four: Because I don't have enough going on, I decided it was time to resurrect Fraggle Creations. I have a Vendor Fair tonight, that sounded like a great idea two months ago when I signed up for it two months ago. I had plenty of time to prep. But then Beachbody took off like crazy and I got busy with that. So I had nothing. Which meant that I spent my week pulling my hair out prepping some inventory. I managed to pull it off and I am really looking forward to it. AND they decided at work that they wanted to do a "paint your own wine glass" night so they hired me to do it!

Five: We attempted Family Pictures this week. I say attempted because we were NOT successful. It started off great. We took some silly family pictures. We played outside. But then things ran late, John fell down the hill, he was over it, and finally after lots of tears and a busted lip, we called it a wrap. We are going to try it again on Wednesday, so I'm hoping we can be better prepared. If not... looks like this is our Christmas card...
Aaaaaand that's all I got for you today. I still have a big to do list to prep for tonight. But... the pain is temporary and they serve booze there, so I'll survive! Just sad to be missing my lil bub's bed time tonight.
Have a great weekend folks!
