Our Weekend

I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a good one, and I am seriously suffering today. Going out doesn’t get easier as you get older!

We had a really relaxing Friday night. We stayed in and had pizza and went to bed early.  Our kids slept in, and didn’t even come in to wake us. It was a rare treat to sleep in until 9 Am, I don’t remember the last time that happened!

Saturday we went to the park in the morning and then we took the kids down to Crown Center. Wow; that was a zoo. Parking is ridiculous down there, and everything was jam packed. So, we just let the kids play outside for a little bit and then we did some Christmas shopping at Hall’s. I truly miss this store being on the Plaza. I miss the staff, the beauty department, the handbag department and of course the beautiful Christmas decor. The plaza is not the same without it!

On the flipside; we now live so much closer to downtown and I really want to make an effort to pop in there more often. It’s such a beautiful store. We had a nice little lunch at the H Bar, which has great lite bites.


Saturday night to prep for our Health House Christmas dinner, I had my friend Beth do my makeup. Beth is AMAZING. She has over 10 years of experience doing professional makeup application. She worked in Chicago at Neiman Marcus and Saks, and she does Bridal, and commercial work.

 I have worked with her on professional shoots before, but have never had her do MY MAKEUP. What a treat! One service she offers, that most makeup artists don’t is that she comes to your house, even if it’s just for a night out. Beth brings all of her product and she works her magic. She will even do hair touch ups too. You can enjoy a glass of wine, and play your own music. It’s really a wonderful service, and it’s affordable!



a little blurry, but here is the finished product! I absolutely loved what she did.
