Seriously Fun Weekend

I hate that I am working today. After the way we ran the streets this weekend, it is a miracle that I could even make it in today. It was fun but I will most definitely be taking naps this week to catch up ! LOL

Saturday we went to Mr. Mixologist's Annual Aficionado Event at one of his favorite Cigar Lounges, Serious Cigars. They host a customer appreciation party every January and we can invite guests. My love is SERIOUS about his Cigars. We had another blast this year & several of our friends came through to enjoy the food, drinks, cigars and laughs. It was fun.

We should have heeded the warning above me !

He was so excited ! LOL

This event has gotten so big, they no longer have it in the Cigar Lounge, they rent a huge tent and set it up adjacent to the building. Funny, when I was uploading the pics I noticed they had signs posted that said " Enjoy yourself but please drink responsibly" LOL All I can say about that is "I wasn't driving".  We shut the party down & then followed some friends to another spot. I did every line dance known to man till my legs were sore ! LOL But I know how to K-Wang wit it though !

I had somewhat recovered by Sunday when TiffanyinHouston and her husband hosted a Texans Watch Party. My Beau is SERIOUS about his football too.  I am not into sports like most, but I enjoy the excitement & the social aspect of it all.  We really appreciated the invitation, however, if they had known that Mr. Mixologist was going for Baltimore, we might not have made the guest list ! LMAO It was a lot of fun and laughs and clowning with some cool people. Even Tarsha came through rockin' the flyest hat ! (I see you) and I even met a new Soror. Happy Founder's Day to all the lovely ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.  We left their party & met up with some other friends at another Sports Bar to catch another game before finally wrapping up a fun filled weekend.

Rockin' my new T from the Bridal Expo

Maybe next year Texans ! 

I said I was going to "sit down somewhere" in 2012 but so far we have been staying just as busy it seems. I guess I need to rethink that. Life is good. Man, when I finally settled down Sunday night, I was hating on all those who get to enjoy the Martin Luther King Holiday today by being off work.   Enjoy yourself today & think of those who have to work today & always remember the Dream !

How was your weekend ?  Any special plans to Celebrate the Holiday ?

Thoughts ? Comments ? Questions ?

Hey Girlie! Love the weekend pics. Just trying to relax. I ripped and ran all weekend. Had an audition and then ran around with my younger son. I usually do some volunteer work on MLK but I am exhausted today.

I think it's awesome that we have turned the holiday into a day of service. It is a wonderful way to honor his legacy.
