Hunger Games and a Chambray Shirt: Our Weekend



First thing...The Hunger Games was really good. Heavens to Brenda, y'all. That Gale is yummy.

But more about that in a bit...

We were supposed to go to Happy Hour with some of my co-workers, but then realized that our good friend's birthday celebration was that evening at 6! We are very popular and are desired at many, many social functions and photo opps.

(And yes, if you didn't gather the sarcasm in that, then you better drift on over to another blog...this one isn't for you.)

(Shannon is the pretty brunette 3rd from the right, wearing the adorbs tunic! She's 37, has two teenage kiddos and is about the size of a thimble.)


My favorite chambray shirt from J.Jill, skirt from H & M, necklace from Belle Boutique last year, heels from Target



Saturday, Stephen got the boat de-winterized and we spent the afternoon cleaning cars and cleaning German Shepherds. The boys got a pseudo-bath. I say 'pseudo' because it's not fully possible to bathe a German Shepherd. They have so many layers of fuzz and fur that they never get completely clean.

She's a beaute! #BoatWives

Then, Saturday night was date night! I put on a cute dress and got dolled up wore the gym shorts and tank I'd been wearing outside all day, (reason there is no date night outfit pic), and we went to the 7:55 p.m. showing of The Hunger Games. We purposely waited a bit to see it in theaters, hoping the madness and hysteria from the tweens would die down.

It was bearable, but the "ooohs" and "aahhhhs" from teenage girls every time Peetah or Gale would appear on screen was...annoying.

The movie, however, was fantabulous. Was it as good as the book? Nope, but that's to be expected the majority of the time that a movie is based on a book. But it was a very well done adaptation, especially considering all the complex details the director had to cram into 2.5 hours.  

Now, on to Book Two!

That President Snow...I don't trust him : )

But I do trust that all of you had a nice weekend. Some parting words for your workday tomorrow:

"Good luck. And may the odds be ever in your favor."

Be blessed, lovelies-

  6. You made me feel oh so fashionable as I sit here in my denim shirt and capris. Thanks! Though now I think I need some bright skirts/pants to wear instead of plain old black.
