Weekend Recap - And Today

Hubby and I went out for our Valentine's Day Dinner. We were invited by one of Hubby's friends to join them in a celebratory dinner. Our friend, Tim, won a competition with Black Planet which gave him a "night on the town with friends" which included a dinner limit of $2,500!!! WOWSER!!! .. we went to Ruth's Chris for dinner and it was deeeee-licious.

 We had sooo much food that we had to take dinners home. We ate appetizers galore .. and ended up taking home 2 dinners each. So we were able to enjoy our dinner for two more days.. and Im still gonna be able to enjoy some dinner tonight! I cant wait to get to it!
Sunday, I went to a baby christening for my sorority sister's baby, Connor. He is so adorable. And the service was excellent. The Reverend preached about God's Purpose. God has a purpose for all of us and we will be here until our purpose is fulfilled. Thank you GOD! Amen.

I spent my Valentine's Day with my family.  Sadly, Hubby said he would have to stay home alone and sing sad love songs.. he is so dramatic, but I love that he wants to spend time with me, lol!  Cousin Nikki and I traveled to New Jersey to the funeral of her mother inlaw - Ms Meredith Person. Cousin Garnet (Nikki's husband) was already there, so we joined him for the event.  It was a loving tribute to a woman who was well loved by her family. She was very intelligent and quite eccentric in her own right.

When I got home, Hubby was sweet enough to have a full display of Valentine's day gifts for me.. My regular flowers.. I love love looove them! .. AND, the best gift was a new cell phone.. YEAAAAAAA! I needed a new phone soo bad. I played with it all night... until I fell asleep.
Well, today.. yup. I made it in to work , EXTRA EARLY today. only to find out that my office was partially flooded over the weekend.. There are huge fans blowing in every direction and its noisey as all get out. BUT.. none of the things in my office were damaged, so thats a plus! and Im leaving early today to be apart of a research study on "paper towels".. I get paid $150 for my efforts.. and Im not sure if Im more excited about leaving work ealry, providing my honest opions about paper towels, OR getting $150 big ones!! GOD IS MY SOURE! and I already have plans for the money.

SOOooo, in fashion news.. these are a new pair of jeans.. how do u like them? I like them alot, but i need to either pull out that fancy sewing machine I got for Christmas.. or take them to get them hemmed (Thanks XX for the great hemming ideas). Cuz, I think they are a tad to long, especially since I will be wearing them for a few more months to come and I doubt that my shoes will be any higher when I wear them.
