Total Basset Case: Weekend Wrap Up : All Wrapped Up

Weekend Wrap Up : All Wrapped Up

Man oh man we crammed a lot in this weekend. 
But really, two weeks before Christmas, what else are you supposed to do?

Friday we had our neighbors over for dinner for an easy casual night.
I made this delicious lemon, rosemary chicken that I need to share with you guys because it is so, so good.

Saturday busy, busy but not before a little coffee, reading and tree time.
I spent the majority of my day running Christmas errands and wrapping.
If anyone wants to come over and finish wrapping and baking for me that would be great.
I'll provide the wine and basset snuggles.

I'm only about 100 pages into that book but I've heard great things about it and excited to read more!
Saturday night Mister and I had some (very) delicious Mexican at our favorite place and watched 'The Heat'.

Sunday  was time for more productiveness.
But again, not before coffee and reading.
And bone chewing and napping for Floyd.
If you didn't see on instagram...that is a bone, stuck to the blanket, stuck to his ear.
He is never anything less than a hot mess.

Sunday I made a big girl purchase of a new computer. I've been saving for a very, very long time for a new one and I am so excited to finally have it!! I'm an extremely loyal Mac girl and have had my original MacBook Pro since the original white ones came out and just recently it's started acting up.  So it was finally time to upgrade to a new MacBook Pro and I am already obsessed.  Hopefully more blogging will happen because my new one is approximately 17585 times faster than my old one.  Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday (for the next 56 years) to me!
Sunday night we hung out with Liz at a cute Madewell event! I never miss a chance to shop around that store! 
And Sunday was wrapped up with exchanging and opening up Secret Santa gifts via Google Hangout with Casey and Kait! Even though we weren't physically together it was still a great evening with wine and some very special gifts! 

I'm off to was your weekend?  Full of holiday fun-ness??

Thanks for coming to Madewell last night! Nothing like a little shopping and Bravo TV discussion :)

Yay to the Mac! I was on cloud nine for weeks when I got mine. Such a game changer.

Allison said...

Oooo... congrats on the big girl purchase!!!! I can't do macs... I grew up on hps and whatnot and I just never got the hang of a mac when I moved in with my boyfriend. I hate wrapping but the alcohol and doggy promises are tempting...!

Sarah Tucker said...

I am save, save, saving for a Mac! And that picture of Floyd is the best!

Jen said...

I saw that book on IG and immediatly added it to my list. I love book suggestions and am just now starting Wild which I think you also posted about. Oh and I love your mug. Where is it from?

Katie said...

Yay for your new computer!! Merry Christmas to you. Derek and I just watched the heat too. Oh and what Mexican place are you referring to? Just had to make sure I know about this delicious place!
