This weekend I tried my hand at a Pinterest find, met some new craft friends, found some cool stuff at the Junior League Holiday shop and went to a seafood fest!
FridayFriday night I decided ice cream was in order since it was on the way and they had peppermint Oreo blizzards, yum! Basically you should just start referring to me as Peppermint everything during this time of year.
Then I made it to JoAnns where they let us use their class room to try our hands at the fall bottle painting. I shared the idea on Friday and here's how ours turned out. The amount of coats we had to put on for a smooth coat and then I free handed my cursive was real life but not perfect so I'm debating spray painting and stenciling. Mine are the two orange ones and my mom made the ones on the far left, looking good!!
SaturdaySaturday morning we headed out to the Tampa Bay Junior League Christmas Shop. I'm not sure that's exactly what it's called but it's what we do while we're there, lol. I found a gift for my dad, some stuff for me and did NOT find the one thing I actually had on my list...a UCF ornament. I could swear they had a ton two years ago when we went, I was reminded we didn't make it last year, but this year they only had the big state schools FSU and UF. Not even USF in Tampa!!
They always have such cute stuff and I think I need to make a candy cane lane sign!!
Saturday night the city my parents live in had their annual seafood festival so we headed down there. Ran into our neighbors, which was fun and got to try out some really great dishes. You had to buy ticket/tokens at the front in order to purchase any food, so I was paranoid about getting more tickets than we needed but we had just enough for everybody to get a meal and a drink. Perfection!
My sister and I shared a seafood platter that had coconut shrimp, alligator bites and some kind of fish I can't remember. Probably tilapia or something. Alligator to me tastes similar to chicken but the vendor was appalled I would even suggest that. Seriously, I have my palette and you have yours. Don't tell me what it tastes like to me! Like I was feeling myself getting fired up over this lady maybe even getting in a verbal fight with her, very surreal.
SundayWe got the angel tree set up and it's so simple, but so stinking cute! Love that we're doing a book theme and already grabbed my angel off the tree!!
How was your weekend?!
Linking up for weekending with B Loved Boston!
