Weekend Recap: Holidays Parties and Shows

I feel like every weekend in December is just jam-packed! This was a busy weekend but I actually remembered to take photos!

Thursday isn't technically the weekend but I had to share that I went to see a screening of Les Miserables with Leanne. I had actually never seen the musical but I was familiar with many of the songs. I loved the movie. The fact that the actors were singing LIVE when filming is seriously impressive!

Friday night I went to the grocery store (I actually find it relaxing to just go aisle by aisle). I relaxed at home and then picked up my sister at the airport (I've never seen the airport so crowded!). Had to brace myself for the busy weekend!

Saturday I went to see Silver Linings Playbook with my dad and sister and we had lunch at family favorite, Island's (oh the cheese fries. How I love them!). I think Jennifer Lawrence is so pretty and I guess Bradley Cooper isn't too bad either ;)

Saturday night I had not one but TWO holiday parties! First I went with my high school friends, M and C, to a gingerbread decorating party at our other high school friend's house.
Outfit for the gingerbread party. New bow top from J.Crew black friday shopping
It is quite the competition! People use saws and glue guns to make crazy gingerbread art. This year there were two boats, a dragon, a bakery, a double wide trailer (with a hot tub and truck on blocks). Wish I had photos of the other pieces

Our boat: crow's nest and port holes included!
M loves Anne of Green Gables so she did Green Gables at Christmas time
Then C and I met up with Leeann from Join the Gossip at an ugly Christmas sweater party hosted by Brooke and Emily of Chelsea Grey.
Changed into our sweaters and took another photo with my tree
A, me, C, Brooke
Sunday I slept in really really late. The past week was exhausting at work and I just really needed to sleep in. I felt like I sort of wasted the day but it was raining and cold so I was cozy at home. I addressed holiday cards and watched Law and Order SVU. I then went to dinner and a show with my friend A. We went to Ugo in Culver City and then walked over to the Kirk Douglas Theater to see Second City's A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens. It was HILARIOUS! The best part is that they used audience submissions (we were asked to write down the meanest thing we ever did to someone). I was laughing so hard!

I am linking up with Leeann for the Weekend Update


  1. i cannot believe you saw Les jealousy knows NO words.

    and i LOVE Ugo..great choice!

  2. What a fun weekend! I'm totally jealous of Les Mis. I'm trying to figure out how I can leave family early on Cmas to go see it. My very favorite musical ever- can't wait!


  3. Sounds like a fab weekend!! I loved Silver Linings Playbook!!

  4. What a weekend! I didn't know the actors were singing live in the movie. That never happens! How cool! Silver Linings Playbook doesn't open here until Christmas. I really want to see it. Was it good? That is a serious gingerbread party! I love your ugly sweater!

  5. What a fun weekend! I can't wait wait wait to see Les Mis! :)

  6. That Anne of Green Gables gingerbread house is perfection!

    1. Isn't it cute? We better start brainstorming for next party-it's quite the competition!
