Weekend Wrap-Up

I love weekends, but this one was one of my favorites lately. Friday evening I had dinner and drinks at a place that has been on my list of places to try with stellar company, then I woke up Saturday morning and learned that I won a pair of Kork-Ease boots via instagram from Feet First, a local shoe boutique.

I went in that morning and picked out a pair boots with my friend, Michelle, and she bought a great pair of shoes. After that we spent time at the Riverwalk Outlets in my neighborhood. We ate lunch and spent time looking around at various shops, then I met up with another friend who spent the afternoon on my rooftop with me.

It’s been a while since I took advantage of the rooftop, but the weather in New Orleans is beautiful right now. My neighbors and I were joined by my friend, Alonzo, that evening too.

Sunday morning I didn’t attend church. It’s weird to sleep in on a Sunday, but it felt good today. My long time blog friend, Lynn, came into New Orleans, and it was awesome to finally meet her!

We had lunch at one of my favorite spots in my neighborhood, Domenica. I was sad to learn that they had removed my favorite pizza from the menu until I tried the pumpkin pizza. (I know, it sounds odd, but it was amazing!) The pizza, which was loaded with roasted pumpkin and bacon.

When Lynn and her husband headed to the game, I came home and did a little baking and visiting with my neighbors. We watched the Saints win, which was awesome and long overdue and painted my nails for the second time of the day.

Lynn brought me two sets of holiday Jamberry wraps, and I can’t wait to wear the Halloween wraps later this week. Has anyone else that I know use Jamberry?

Now it’s time to start a new week, and I’m ready for it. A friend from New York is coming in for a few days, and I’m going to get to spend some time with her Wednesday morning. I’m kind of hoping that there’s more fun coming up in the next few days too.

Now it’s time to get the week started, which means that I’m back to limiting the amount of sugar that I consume. I’m definitely going to hone my goals this week and add some new things to the mix. More on that later.

Until then…

    Kenlie – Mel at the Daily Mel, not only uses Jamberry, but sells it, I believe. She is always posting manicure pictures on Instagram. I should start taking better care of my fingernails!

      I think I knew that she sold it, but I definitely knew that she used them. I tried using the Halloween ones, not realizing that they were for kids, and they were too small. I can’t wait to try the full size ones. Ha

    You have gorgeous nails! Beautiful hands, with nice slim fingers. No, I’m not a freak with a hand fetish. 😀 I just notice beautiful things on people.

    So happy for you on the boots win! Wow! They’re soo nice! You’ll have to do a review of comfort. I just got a new pair of suede wedges (boots), and they’re very comfy. Yours are so cute.
    Your nails & both colors look super.
    Happy Fall!

      Happy fall back, Chrissy! And thank you. The boots are amazingly comfortable so far. I wore them all day, and it was a pleasure.
