well, we don't have too many pictures from this weekend. but that doesn't mean it wasn't an epic weekend! in fact, it may have been the epic weekend heard across the world because yes - beyonce dropped a full album, along with seventeen music videos friday morning. like no big deal, ain't no thing. it was a bold move to say the least. i have mostly picked out my favorite songs, but i have ALSO recently been scolded by my husband for playing them too often and too loud. looks like we're going to have upgrade from this one bedroom box we call a home. but the weekend wasn't just about beyonce and her numerous, and fabulous, costume changes, it was also about christmas: specifically christmas shopping and christmas parties. tina and i went out to new jersey, as we're wont to do, for both the favorable tax rates, enclosed shopping space, and chain restaurants like the cheesecake factory that provide us city girls with so much joy. it was a winter wonderland out there, and we got some shopping crossed off our list and missed our train a few times due to taxicabs that never came to pick us up at the mall. nothing a "little" piece of cake couldn't fix. we managed to make it back into the city to glam up and head to a christmas party in manhattan where, due to beyonce's overwhelming influence on the weekend, we made sure to be extra fabulous (we are also wont to do this). sunday was spent recovering with a homemade pancake breakfast, christmas cookie making, target runs and a large pizza, pepperoni please. a solid weekend as we head into the real countdown to christmas, which is technically next week! crazy how time flies. hope you're all enjoying the season!
