Eat Drink & Be Mary: My Weekend in Pictures


My Weekend in Pictures

Now that our weekends are finally freed up Thomas and I are taking full advantage.  We have been attempting  cramming as much as we can into every weekend.  This weekend was no exception!

As I've mentioned before I am done with student teaching.  Now I find myself with not to much to do during the week other than sit on the couch and watch Grey's Anatomy.  Don't get me wrong I am not complaining--it just means that today I am considering Thursday part of my weekend as well.  So without further ado...

Thursday--Girls day.  Myself, Heather & AnnMarie spent our day getting some early Christmas shopping done.  I came up with some pretty good Christmas and birthday gifts for some of my closest friends already and was so excited I couldn't help but start my shopping a little early this year.  We spent the day shopping til our feet hurt and eating the most amazing Chinese food from the food court.  I swear by any Chinese spot set up in a food court--it just taste better.  No ifs about it.
Thursday night was spent catching up with friends that I have not hung out with since the first couple weeks of school.  I have no excuse for not seeing these friends of mine--the school's campus is no bigger than 2 miles long.  But either way I was glad to see and catch up with some good friends before graduation (less than one month away!!!!).  Unfortunately, most of said friends are not pictured above.

Friday--My day consisted of my booty on the couch & some form of food in my hand.  Much needed relaxation and alone time.  I also updated the littler corner of my desk for Thanksgiving.  Loving this little raccoon | glittery pumpkin | and T is for Thankful printable.  I did; however, make it to the gym to complete my FIFTH day in a row going to the gym.  Woooo!

Saturday--Another Saturday morning, another 8:30am class.  To say this wake up time is getting old is an understatement.  After another grueling class, we headed to Charlotte.  Thomas behind the wheel.  Myself with my knitting project in hand.  I was loving it.  Arriving in Charlotte I was beyond thrilled to be reunited with my best friend and to celebrate her birthday.  Later that night we all went out to eat at Blackfinn with a couple of her law school friends and their boyfriends.  Quadruple date--whoa.  The food was scrumptious and I had leftovers for the next day.  #winning  After dinner we saw a GINORMOUS tree and of course we haddd to take pictures by it.

Carolyn and her boyfriend got the cutest new little puppy, Thor, and I was in love.  He is sooo cute--that is until he gets bigger.  I just can't do big dogs--they intimidate me; I just can't.  But for now the little fellow had my heart & I get the impression that he was pretty fond of me too--pouncing on my leg & humping every time I appeared to let my guard down.

Sunday--Care and I went for a coffee run to Dunkin Donuts, while her boyfriend cooked us up a gourmet breakfast fit for a queen, and deep down we all know I am.  We spent the rest of the morning just catching out and playing with their little furbaby some more.

Later we grabbed lunch with one of my college roommates, Deanna.  I have mentioned her before.  We lived together several years during college.  We clogged together.  We're in the same sorority.  To say the least, she is one of the best friends I have.  SO, needless to say I was elated to finally meet up with her and her other half now that she has graduated.  We met at Dilworth's Neighborhood Grille, also in Charlotte, for lunch.  For three hours, we did nothing but catch up, reminisce, laugh--not a dull moment.  I said it before, and I'll say it again.  The girl is a hoot.  Hilarious.  Seriously, she can make anyone laugh!

It's weekends like these that remind me how blessed I am to have a handle full of truly great friends.  Friends that I know will always be there for me.  
Thank God for girls I call my best friends.

And that's a wrap folks.  
Another weekend in the books.
I am now looking forward to a week at home with family, 
lots and lots of food, and Black Friday shopping!  


  1. Your weekend was a million times more eventful than mine, ha! But seriously, I thought that puppy was cute enough, but then I read that his name was Thor, and then he somehow magically got even cuter!! You should totally give big dogs another chance, they're the =) . Also, I love your sweater, the black and tan one?! Where's it from?!

  2. Looks like you had a great weekend Thor is precious!
