DREW'S MOM said...

Marian said...

Holy insano!!! You guys really have that much snow?!? That's crazy!
That movie looks like a lot of fun, and I think I would be starving after watching it! That mexican food looks amazing by the way!
Right now I can't help but be jealous of you for having your close family near by, and being able to see them whenever you want! I wish I could do that too! So glad you had a fun weekend, and I hope you don't have to deal with any drama today :-)

naveen said...

SG said...

Thanks for the sweet comment. It's definitely much harder to plan a wedding when you have to pay for it yourself. I'm sure it will all work out in the end but it's going to be stressful getting to that point. Hopefully you guys can start making plans soon. I know how frustrating it must be to wait.

Kristin said...

The in laws sent us snowy pics of Duluth this weekend. I'm quite jealous actually. Hope the drama wasn't too bad!

Iva said...

eeekkk drama, I hope it wasn't too terrible BLEH!

That Mexican food looks DELICIOUS!!

and 3D is the only way to go. i saw toy story 3D this weekend and was in heaven!

sorry about the snow. and the drama. ewww.

OceanDreams said...

I am sooo jealous over your snow, I miss UT right about now because I am usually used to the snow! Hope you enjoy it and stay warm, I know it is a pain dealing with driving and shoveling though.

That movie looks hilarious, glad you enjoyed it. Also...that food looks delicious! Yum!

Can't wait to see what that lovely jewelry is all about, I am liking all of the colors.

Ashley said...

Snow, already?!?! I thought we had a short fall here in Michigan, but at least we haven't had snow yet.

Ela said...

Wow I can't believe that snow, it doesn't even look real! That's crazy! And those fajitas look so amazing. So glad you had an amazing weekend, I can't wait to see that movie :)

jeannie said...

Christa said...

Thanks for the comment! I have been wanting to see that movie!! Looks so cute! And those fajita's look yummy!!

I cant believe it is snowing!! I wish it snowed here. We are lucky if it snows once in Texas. They are saying it is going to be a wet/cold winter so we might actually see some this year!

Southern Champagne Wishes said...

It is early - but the snow looks beautiful!

I have been wanting to see Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs only because I really want to see a 3-D movie and it looked like a good one. I think I'll plan on that this weekend!

Hope you have a great week!

Molly said...

Oh, I want to see that movie! Sounds fun!
Can't believe you are getting snow! It is chilly here, for here, but that is 60!

Brittany Ann said...

Snow????? I cannot believe it's snowing and I'm sweating in a tank top. So funny!

Texan Couture said...

I love 3-D movies, Boyf & I saw Beowulf at an Imax theater during Thanksgiving 2 years ago and it was so much fun!

Beyond jealous of your snow!!! Austin had nice cool weather this weekend, but I think by Wednesday it will be back in the 80s. Blah

sarah said...

The weather here has been TERRIBLY HOT. But YIKES to snow in October!

At least the Mexican food looked yummy!

Lauren Kelly said...

Girl, ALL that food looks and sounds amazing. YUM!!!!!!!!! Sounds like a great weekend with wonderful company. It's so funny to hear of it snowing in other places already because we are BOILING here in Florida, haha!!! :)

Danielle said...

Ahh, I'm so jealous that you got to see Cloud With A Chance in 3D! Nobody will go with me and especially not the fiance. Sounds like you had a great, busy weekend. Enjoy the snow. I'm super excited that it started raining here today :)

Kentucky Blonde said...

A Real Housewife said...

Sounds like you two had a fabulous weekend! Can't wait to hear about this little project!

Savvy Gal said...

Amber said...

That snow is tripping me out! It's so hot and gross here! Sounds like a great weekend except for the drama... I hope everything's ok, love. Now I'm curious about what Billy will be selling. It looks like beaded curtains or something haha! Hope your week is fabulous so far. XOXO

Charlotte said...

cloudy with a chance of meatballs was my favorite book growing up! I can't wait to see the movie!! sounds like yall had a fabulous weekend!!

Jules said...

You have a movie theater that serves beer…how cool is that? :) I’m glad you enjoyed the movie.

Dinner at Billy’s sisters house sounds (and looks) delicious. I don’t know what a mexi-wonton is, but it sure sounds good. Aside from drama, it sounds like a fun night. The rest of the weekend sounds like it was nice and relaxing.

I can’t believe that you have snow already.

Michelle said...

Ugh, I am so effing sick of snow! It was like 0 degrees here all weekend! Glad you had a fun weekend!

SassyCassie said...

Sorry to hear about the drama. Those chicken fajitas look beyond amazing-yummy!

Kristen said...

Lindsey Conrad - Nabors said...

You are already getting SNOW?? OMG!

Those chicken fajitas look SOO good! Fajitas are one of my favorite things!! And I haven't been to a 3D movie at our Imax theatre in SO long! What a fun date!!! ;)

Gwen said...

I'm actually jealous of your snow. I love the first snow of the season. :) Sounds like a fabulous weekend!!! XOXO

Pattie said...

First, I soo want to see that movie, and I didn't even know it was in 3D

And, that fiesta dinner looks so scrumptious (yumm)
Second, I know fall seems to get skipped over each year in georgia as well, there is only summer and winter
But at least snow is fun :)

Looks like you had a fabulous weekend yourself chicka! I haven’t been to the theaters in so long and I’ve never watched a 3d movie. Sounds pretty awesome. All that talk about chess burgers and ice cream got me hungry and those fajitas look delicious! I’m super jealous you woke up to snow. It’s barley raining down. But any who I’m glad you had a great week-end and I can’t wait to see your next post about what you’re selling! toodles
