Weekending: Friend Fun

Hi, Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend.  We got to see a few of our favorite Chicago friends here in Michigan and it was so nice.  While the suburbs may be better for us, we still really miss our favorites that we left in the city!

Friday started off on the best note when we received our first Christmas card of the season - and from a blogger friend, no less!  Carrington, you are the sweetest and your card turned out adorably!  I know I've said it before but I'm so thankful for the friendships that have come from the blog world. 

After Nick got out of work early thanks to his company Christmas party, we headed up to Grand Rapids for a Grand Rapids Griffins hockey game.  Our friend Nicole's brother plays for Oklahoma City - the Griffins opponents - so her whole family was there.  It was fun to catch up and you can't beat a hockey game that has $2 beers on Friday nights!




On Saturday, our friends Dave and Kerry came in from Chicago the for the night.  Not sure if they came to see us or to meet the dog, though ;)


We had dinner at our favorite spot, The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange (the stock/beer market bar) and then kept things low key with cards back at the house.  We're officially old.  And I love it.




Sunday called for donuts, housework and football/Christmas movies.  We finally decided on a color for the master bedroom, Benjamin Moore's Cedar Key.  Thank you for all of your suggestions on Friday - we tested a bunch of them and can't wait to get the room painted this week!



#yum.  Have a great Monday!

  4. Haha We love having friends over to play cards or even just playing by ourselves. It's so much fun. Getting older is underrated!! We noticed that we had so many more friends and family members coming to visit after we got Koda. So I always tell people, if you want more friends, get a dog!

  9. Mmm donuts! Yay for deciding on a paint color! Can't wait to see what it looks like. And how fun that you got a Christmas card from a blogger. I was thinking it would be fun to do that, but was worried I would sound like a total creeper asking for addresses. lol. Sounds like a fun weekend! I've never been to a hockey game, but they look like fun!
