Sunday was spent organizing, cleaning, relaxing, running errands and writing thank you notes!
Even though most people would call my weekend "boring", I call it "exactly what I needed."
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend spent with family and friends!

I'm leaving this afternoon for Charleston, SC. It's only 4 days until my wedding, so today is my final post for a couple weeks! I'm taking this time to enjoy my family, friends and my soon-to-be husband! I'm sure I will have tons to write about when I get back from my honeymoon! Love to all!

Last night both Dave and I were home early from work. I asked him if he wanted to go to happy hour since this is a rare occasion that we are both home at a decent time. So we headed to a local bar down the street, got a couple of beers, played Golden Tee and some games on the counter-top touchscreen at the bar , and had some yummy appetizers. What an unexpectedly wonderful evening we had together. I just love him! :)

Our last winery of the day was Notaviva Vineyards. We did a tasting here and the staff here was super nice. This was the most enjoyable tasting of the afternoon.
|Our driver, David, is a little lost|
That night we went out to dinner at Fire Works. We enjoyed many laughs and pizza. Then the ones who were left standing, headed to Rumors to finish off the night! What an amazing day with amazing friends! Thank you girls for a memorable weekend!! :)
|My Masterpiece! :)|
It was awesome to see everyone out of their element! We are all used to working with numbers on a day to day basis, so painting was something that didn't come natural to most of us. However, I am super impressed with how everyone's paintings turned out! We really did have some artists in our crowd! I'm even impressed with how the Partners' paintings turned out; way to go Dave and Mike!
Oh, and we had Georgetown cupcakes!! YUMMMMMMM!!

Today I stumbled across this cute penguin blouse from Anthropologie. It's a cute pattern that I would ACTUALLY wear, unlike those tacky Christmas sweaters with penguins all over them! ;) I'll put this on my wish list!
Ask me any penguin question and I'm sure I'll know the answer!! :)
