Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend was b.u.s.y.. It started Friday night with dinner at the Huxford's place and then dessert at The Melting Pot. It was my first time experiencing The Melting Pot, and let me just say there is nothing better than a plate of strawberries and pot of chocolate. It was delicious! The best part? Not spending a dime. Harrison, Lindsay's husband, bought a $50 gift card for $25 off of the Groupon website. If you haven't heard of it, you need to check it out. You can get crazy good deals in your city!

Saturday morning brought the weekly trip to Classic Coffee, my fav local coffee shop in walking distance and then small group with some amazing college girls. We are currently talking about fun stuff like....boys, dating and God's will for us in the mix of all of that. Girls never get tired of talking about boys.

After a quick drop off at Goodwill, Kelly (a student in the study) and I went to dinner at Z Pizza (yum, organic pizza) and then made a short shopping trip to Homegoods. I found it hilarious when she said "Homegoods? That is my mom's favorite store." Seriously....does this mean I'm getting old? Anyway, I came home with 3 yummy smelling candles and this cute lamp. Don't you love it???

Then we caught a late night movie and saw Edge of Darkness with Mel Gibson. Patrick and I are extremely cheap when it comes to paying to see movies in the theater. We are rarely willing to do it, especially since we have a Redbox so close. BUT, we bit the bullet and went with a couple of students. I would give it a C-/B+. Definitely a movie I could have waited to watch at home, but Mel Gibson makes any movie good. Good story line and a lot of action.
