A Fabulous weekend & Our Christmas Card!

It’s Monday…..
….and I am okay with that because I had a pretty fantastic weekend!

Before I get to that, I wanted to share our Christmas Cards!
I finally got them done addressed, stamped, and in the mail on Saturday!
They are from tinyprints and I LOVE how they turned out!
The pictures were taken by my BFF, Laura, on my fabulous camera just down the street from our house.
I then edited them on Picnik, I LOOOOOOOOOOVE this website.
Free editing along with lots of fun tricks and things! I highly recommend checking it out! I'll have to post the original pic later to show you the amazingneess that is editing! 

Whatcha think?!

Now onto the weekend recap….

Friday night The Hubs took me out on date night, oh how I love date night!
We went to one of our favorite restaurants, 55 South, on the square in Franklin. And lemme just say….I LOVE Franklin. One of my favorite places ever, The Hubs and I will live there one day….

The food is a mix between Memphis and New Orleans, the 2 cities are connected by I-55 in Mississippi, hence the name, 55 South. And the owner went to Ole I am a little partial... :)....but really the food is AMAZING! We have had several of the entrees and never had anything bad. 
My favorite, the NOLA BBQ Shrimp over Cheese Grits......yuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!
 A quick pic of the pretty!
 Then Saturday, we had a lazy in bed morning (I love those mornings!), then headed back to Franklin for their Christmas festival, "A Dickens of a Christmas". They shut the square down and add booths full of crafts, gifts, and reeeeeeeeally good food, there are about 100 people in full Charles Dickens themed costumes, carolers, carriage rides, holiday performances, and all kinds of stuff. I love it, one of our favorite holiday traditions! 
We brought the pups all dressed up in there was COLD!

My handsome men!
 aren't they cute?!!?
My sweet little pumpkin!

Sadly, that's all the pics I took...I was really cold and I didn't want to take my hands out of my pockets! :) 
 I did however snap a few pics of my sweet Maylie on the ride home....
she had a fabulous time and was pooped on the way home...
still excited...
getting sleepy....
 and she's out!
Then Saturday night we had my office Christmas party....

While I was getting ready I jokingly said to The Hubs....
"You know what would look really good with this outfit....a gold Michael Kors watch....totally kidding, well kind of...just wanted to remind him since my birthday is a about a week away...he smiles and says yeah, yeah.

Then I hear him go to the basement/his mancave/where he hides all of my presents and then come right back up and to the bathroom...I turn around and there is a pretty little Michael Kors box in his hand.....

I litterally started jumping up and down like a little girl. Hugging and kissing was funny.

So yes, a week and 2 days before my birthday....but I am finally the proud owner of this gorgeous piece of wrist decor! 
Awwwww!! Don'tcha just love it?!
I swear I "check the time" every 5 minutes.....
much, baby! I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it so much!!

The Sunday we finished up the weekend with ribs that The Hubs spent all day smoking again with some of my favorite people that I have not seen in FAR too long....
 including this precious little nugget, 
Miss Adelyn!
 I mean seriously, how freaking cute is she?!?!?!
Well, that was the weekend for us! It was really a fabulous one!

Ready to take on the week, our girls Christmas Party on Wednesday....
And get ready for the next weekend....
Birthday Dinner for ME! Friday, and one of many Christmases Saturday!
