Woo hoo, it’s Friday! Are you ready for the holiday weekend? I can’t wait to visit with family, eat some great food and lounge in my comfy clothes. I’m also looking forward to wrapping my gifts, I just love gift wrapping with pretty paper and bows. However, there’s something nice about cramming a gift in to a bag with tissue and calling it done. Am I right?

Hello to our new planners over at WeddingPlannerLove:

We hope you all have a great holiday! Safe travels should you be traveling (wear your seatbelts and all that good stuff). We’ll be taking a little time away from blogging over the holiday, so we’ll see you in 2012!

This week was a whirlwind, as they always seem to be! I think the highlight of the week was a lobster dinner on Tuesday night. I think the cute bibs added to the enjoyment. Because really, what else can you eat that requires a goofy plastic bib (unless you are under the age of two)? Now, onto the weekly review…
