Wow, considering I packed so much in, I feel like it was actually a long, restful weekend. Friday afternoon I headed to a friend’s house for a play date for the kids and a wine date for the Moms. Lots of fun indeed. It’s a wonderful feeling when the children are old enough to play amongst themselves and the Moms can catch up…we were supervising – promise – bundled up in our puffer coats watching them play in the yard! I did feel a bit guilty as I made my friend aware of some websites that were new to her – I think she had ordered a shirt, shorts and pants within 10mins of clicking:)
Saturday night MM and I went out together. It was lovely. He is lovely. I’ve been enjoying my recent ‘girls nights out’ but there really is nothing better than a night out with the Husband, enjoying some great food, wine and conversation. As I’m off back to the UK in a couple of weeks we decided to plan a few ‘date nights’ before I abandon ship. I over indulged with oysters, shrimp and grits and a fine Rioja – perfect:)
I did, however, get a couple of jibes about my attire. MM has a very wry sense of humor:) For those of you familiar with British culture you will be more than aware of Blackadder. Anyway MM wanted to know where Lord Melchett was when he saw me – cheeky s*d:)
The dress is Converse for Target, the fabulous fur vest is Skaist Taylor for the Neiman Marcus/Target collaboration from Christmas (no longer available on the Target website), and the boots are the Rag & Bone Newburys. Really a dreadful photo but I was in a hurry – the cab had arrived!
Here’s a close up of the vest – the shoulders are fab-u-lous:
Sunday was of course Superbowl and I am thrilled the Ravens won – I’m completely crushing on Ray Lewis – he is so psyched before a game – and I will miss his pre-game dances next season. Beyoncé killed it with her half time performance – totally amazing – she certainly silenced her critics. How awesome to see Destiny’s Child back together too!
As for the ads – hmm – hated the Audi Prom ad – I thought it was totally irresponsible:
Loved the Dodge Ram Farmer ad though I’ll never buy a Dodge Ram:
I wanted to dislike the Budweiser ad as it was so sappy, but I saw it again this morning and it actually made me tear up – I think it has more to do with Stevie Nicks than the Clydesdale though.
The Doritos ads were hilarious.
Which was your favorite ad? Any that irked you or moved you?
