It was a long weekend in many respects. This is what I did:
I made crawfish dip for a party on Saturday.
I had my eyebrows ripped out with hot wax.
I went to dinner with friends and drank Pomegranate Margaritas.
I wore these shoes to dinner:
After dinner, I lurched around the mall with a group of women, squealing over clothes and shoes and generally having a good time.
Saturday, I attended a workshop given by Morgan Doremus and Stephanie Klose from RT magazine.
Saturday evening, I attended a party with homemade BBQ, the aforementioned crawfish dip, and lots of yummy Southern cooking.
I laughed my butt off. (I wish it were that easy to shed fat.)
I got home late and the cats were pissed. Fed them and dealt with the fall out.
Got to bed late.
Slept late. (Embarassingly late.)
Talked to a friend for 2.5 hours Sunday morning.
Watched football with Hubby.
Talked to another friend for an hour.
Wrote a blog post while football was on.
Thought of significance of 9/11, cried a bit with all the tributes and that Budweiser commercial, but decided not to write about my 9/11 memories. Many people have done so more eloquently than I.
And that's the weekend. Notice there was no writing in there. Today, back to work. Oh, and the New Voices competition begins tomorrow. I'm a mentor, and looking forward to it!
Crawfish Dip!!!???????!!!!!!!!! Speaking for myself and your Dad–we are bummed! To anyone who reads this post and I know there are many—Lynn makes the absolute B E S T Crawfish Dip EVER! It is so dang good it makes crawfish just happy to be included in it!
@M: There’s some left. I’m going to freeze it and pull it out again over the holidays. 🙂
“Hot waxed your eyebrows?”
Ouch, ouch, ouch. .. .that would put me off living for about three days.
But, anyway have been thinking about you and the hubby lately.
Hope you are doing well.
@Cyn Bagley: Well, not the whole eyebrow. 🙂 Cleans them up so nicely without the pain of plucking. I go to a salon for it. All is well here! Hope you are well too! Thought of you yesterday — we were having coffee 10 yrs ago on 9/11 in the Bookmark. :/
How fun! I would break my neck wearing shoes like that. Those were the days for me, high heels, business suites.
I would love your dip recipe! You “Southern” girls really know how to cook! Why don’t you post it on your website? 😀
Sending hugs. I’m having my brows done tomorrow at Anatasia’s at Nordstrom’s. Pretty “painless”.
@Marilyn Shoemaker: I’ve been thinking about putting up recipes, Marilyn! Everyone loves a good recipe. 🙂 I hate getting the eyebrows waxed, but it’s so much easier and prettier than doing it yourself or ignoring them. 🙂
😀 You should visit Okay, Listen Here and post your recipe for us on a Friday, Lynn. We’d love to add it to our favorites!
I love your shoes. What a great find! So glad you had a fantastic, relaxing weekend.
Wasn’t the Budweiser commercial heartwrenching? I LOVED the simplicity. It spoke volumes.
