Weekend Update

It was a busy weekend but a good one. (And a cold one too)  It looked like Spring with lots of great sunshine but then you stepped outside and this biting cold wind smacked you. 

However there is nothing like a little retail therapy road trip to warm a girls heart.  Plus Mom had not been out of the house for about 2 weeks.  Her day care program was cancelled the last 2 weeks and her BFF Alice usually takes her out every Friday afternoon but hasn't been able to for the past 2 weeks.  So I needed to get her out and moving around.

So Saturday morning I packed up my Golden Girls, plus another, and we headed to Moncton for a few hours.  Margaret doesn't drive so she enjoys getting out too and she watches Mom while Auntie and I shop.  Its win win.

We stopped for a nice lunch and then we hit the SHOE STORES.  Now I displayed enormous restraint and only came home with 3 pairs.  Plus the fact that my shoe size seems to be very popular and a few pairs I was eying were not available in my size.  Its a little ironic that the movie playing on TV last night was "Confessions of a Shopaholic".  Do you think that was some kind of sign or hidden message??

The red ones are in honor of Michelle and Doris.  LOL  I decided not to foot model them for you since I haven't booked my Spring pedicure yet and these 10 little piggies are NOT ready for their close-up yet.
I also picked up a new outfit and Auntie and I found some things for Mom's birthday which is coming up soon.  So that was a good day !

Still on my post-shopping high I decided to put some extra effort into Sunday Brunch.  I made eggs benedict with smoked salmon
This is obviously not a picture of mine but it looked just as yummy.   Our road trip yesterday put my behind on the weekend chores so that's how I'll be spending the rest of the afternoon.

Happy Sunday


  1. Oh my gosh - sounded like a great day - God bless you!

  2. Kim, I love your shoes. Let's face it, your 10 little piggies are not alone needing a pedicure, ha,ha. My heels have been dry and crackled all winter and I'm just starting to take care of them with Mary Kay extra emollient night cream and it's working great so far.

    I'm so glad that you got your Golden Girls out of the house. It has been a long winter. I hope that they are all well. Did Little Millie come with you?

    You breakfast looks delish. JB
