Weekend Recap: Errands & Cinderella

Hey all!  Coming at you live this morning.  I was so tired last night, I fell asleep on the couch and barely woke up enough to make it to bed!  This weekend was a good, and full one, too.

Friday was pretty low key.  I started the weekend with a training session that did me in.  After stopping by the library for some new books, I was in for the night, relaxing.

Saturday I slept in!  I have been using Saturdays that I have nothing going on in the morning as my 'no alarm' day, and it's been really nice to wake up on my own.  I tried out the Pumpkin Walnut Crunch bagel from Einstein's - it was really good!  I loved the Panera Pumpkin bagels, but they haven't had those for a year (or more?), so it's nice to find a good alternative.  I had a laundry list of errands to run Saturday, so I spent the afternoon doing that.  I also hit up my favorite antique mall before my errands...wanted to get in a little fun shopping before the necessary shopping.  There were so many good finds!  I walked away with a few Shiny Brite ornaments (sent the picture below to my mom to help me decide which one - I ended up with the ornament on the right), two milk glass vases, and a creamer for my grandma.  She collects creamers, so any time I see one (which isn't all that often), I always grab it if it's reasonable.  Many of the booths already have out their holiday items, and I think these carolers are so neat!  A Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas movie, so I love that these are some of the characters.


Sunday I did not want to get up for church, haha.  For some reason this whole weekend I was just really tired.  But I am glad I did.  In Sunday School we covered Romans 12: 9-21, which was a passage I wasn't very familiar with, but I thought it was really good.  And one I actually could understand well, haha!  Sunday afternoon was a bit if a blur - lunch, laundry, picking up a bit, and replacing the plants in my front with mums I had picked up the day before.  There was a little accident with the mums, and I couldn't help but snap a picture of the mess as a reminder, because it was pretty funny in the moment.  I was trying to get some of the dirt out of the pots to allow for the mums to fit in, and all of a sudden it ALL came out!

I was off to meet a friend and her daughter to see the original Cinderella on the big screen!  It was a special offering that one of the local theaters was doing.  Cinderella was my favorite princess movie growing up, and I thought being able to see it in the theater would be so neat and fun.  And it was!  It's funny, too, which you watch movies like that now, you catch so many more little jokes, or comments that when I was little, I wouldn't have got, or noticed.

All in all it was a good weekend, and I am hoping as we make our way through this Monday, that it will be a great start to the week!


Linking up with Lindsay.

  1. Hi, Lindsey, I live in Lake St. Louis so I think we both must live in the same area. I was curious about your favorite antique store. Could you share it? I need to find something new and thought maybe the place you go to would be new to me. Thanks and have a great week!! Barbara

  3. I wish we had an Einstein's Bagels here!! I've had them at several airports and they're always so good. And as usual you found some of the coolest stuff when you were out antiquing! Those ornaments are so pretty!
