Morning Meanderings… Birthday Weekend and Book Club Tonight!
Good morning! I think I have a Birthday weekend hangover and not from drinking. 🙂 I just had a really busy weekend that was a lot of fun!
On Saturday my friend Amy and I went to the Gatsby Party in the cities. It was a late night as we drove home the 2+ hours after the event but worth it. I was inspired by what they accomplished.
On Sunday, hubby and I went to a movie, American Sniper. SO good. I will review it at some point this week.
Monday…. my actual birthday. I had coffee in the morning with my friend Gail. Then I went and treated myself to a manicure and pedicure. My son Justin who lives in St. Paul came to the house around 3 pm and we went out and bought snacks for the night, went to a movie ( Project Almanac), picked up pizza afterwards, and came back home and watched Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire and Gone Girl. (yes, again on both of them 😀 ).
Justin brought me this really cool wine glass:

Tonight is book club and I am so excited! I missed last months as I was on vacation so it will be good to see everyone AND it is at my house. We have a couple of books to hand out tonight for our Harper Collins Book Club Girls event:
I have them all set up on the table:
It’s like out own mini BEA. 😀
As for today, Justin is still here. We will hang out this morning and early afternoon than he has plans with friends and I will put the finishing touches on book club. We are reviewing The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain, an author who I discovered this past fall and LOVED this book as well as a few others I have now read by her. I am excited to see what the Bookies think.
Now… what will I make for an appetizer? 😉
