Friday night I joined my friends Sherri, Tracy and Carol for a little girl time. It's always so rejuvenating to get together with a great group of friends. Carol had just returned from a two-week trip to Italy and we were anxious to see her pictures and hear her stories. Tracy fixed appetizers. The wine (and conversation) flowed. Perfect way to spend a Friday night!
We tried getting a picture of all of us with my selfie stick. After many failed attempts (and a couple accidental videos) we got a keeper.
Saturday morning I put together the goody hands for some special trick-or-treaters. I wasn't going to be home in the evening so I delivered them -- it was reverse trick-or-treating. The kids didn't have to come to me, I went to them. I think they were pretty successful.
Saturday afternoon we gathered to celebrate the life of Tracy's mom. Linda was her name and the celebration held by her family was just want she would have wanted it to be. Friends, family and co-workers gathers to share laughs and fellowship. One of the coolest things was the favor handed out when you left. Along with a lovely poem, everyone received a paper butterfly. You can plant the butterfly, watch it grow and bloom into beautiful flowers. Perfect way to honor someone!
In the evening, the Halloween festivities began. There were costumes, silly pictures and lots of great food.
Sunday Eric and I headed to the Rams game. The game was not a perfectly executed one, but somehow we pulled out a win. Yay!!
When we got home, I got my latest Rockbox jewels ready to mail back. Have you guys tried Rockbox yet? If you haven't, click HERE for a free month. Rockbox is one of my favorite subscriptions! You fill out a survey online and then receive three pieces of jewelry picked just for you. The cost is $19 per month. You keep the three pieces for as long or short as you like. When you're finished with them, you can purchase the pieces at a great price or send them back and receive three new pieces. Here's what I received in my latest box ~
It's so fun to wear the jewelry for a while, return it and see what the next three pieces will be.
I spend my extra hour on Sunday finishing the book The Canterbury Sisters. Have you read it? I loved it!! It was a real page turner that really made me reflect on several things. Before I was even finished reading it, I loved it so much that I suggested my book club read it. I'm excited for the upcoming discussion at our next meeting. If you're looking for something good to read, this book is my suggestion.
