A fun weekend!

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?

    Looking great Joanna – as you know I’m a big fan of a fur gilet. Glad you had a great weekend. I’m still looking for a link to the Destiny’s Child performance. The NFL appear to have taken them all off YouTube 😦 Boo! Can’t wait to meet up in a couple of weeks!! Avril

    Dying to know which websites you shared with your mommy friend. I love that she found some things she wanted! p.s. the fur gilet is great. Totally missed it during the Target/NM colab.

      Ha – just JCrew Factory – she didin’t know they had it online – oh and Athleta too:) I didn’t really think the NM/Target thing worked that well – they were just sticking a brand on cheaper goods – I did get the Rag & Bone hip flask to though which I love:)

    No way Edmond Blackadder, that gilet is just amazing and you look super chic in it. Watched some of the superbowl with my poorly 4 year old at 1 in the morning – he wanted to know why the men were wearing tights?
