{weekend recap}

There's been so much excitement over at the Whitley house, I don't even know where to begin!

First, our friend Luis stayed with us Friday night. He's a college bud from Michigan and stopped in Minneapolis on his way home to visit family for Christmas. We went out to dinner Friday night at The Old Spaghetti Factory. We walked through the downtown area and it was a beautiful evening. While it was our first time eating there I left a trail of drool up to the front steps. I just knew it was going to be great.

Next thing I knew I was stuffing my Gussy-self with lots of deliciousness. Once we were done eating and talking, we walked back home and spent the next two hours laughing at YouTube videos and hilarious photo websites. There's nothing more fun than a
n evening reminiscent of our college-days :)

PS. Has anyone seen any of the Gloria make-up video tutorials? Ummm, if you answered No, please click and enjoy. Side note, Gloria does these for fun and my laughter thanks her.
Saturday morning we woke and I cooked up a delicious breakfast. That was delicious meal #2, if I may recap for a second. Luis, Zack and I feasted on scrambled eggs with cheese and salami; bacon; crescent rolls and coffee + vanilla caramel creamer. Oh, and apple crisp ♥ Yum!

Saturday evening Zack and I went to his work party and we are ANOTHER delicious meal. What is that, #3? Whew. I think I need a workout.

More Italian food, more drinks, another fun evening with friends.

At the party, I caught up with some of the other work wives. One of them said to me, Oh, are you the purse girl?

I replied: Heck yeah!


May I confess something? I didn't sew a single thing yesterday. I realize Christmas is getting very close, and we're going to be awfully busy the next few weeks. So I didn't sew.

{I just looked at my sewing machine and my heart felt a little sad.}

However, I have done other Gussy-related tasks this weekend.

However, there is a variety of
Gussy gift certificates if you want to gift your gal with Gussy this Holiday.

{just kidding}

Gift certificates are super swell because upon purchase I will email you a ready-to-print certificate within 24 hours. The recipient then sends me their unique code to redeem their credit.
Yeow! Do you think Gussy can get some Gussy shop credit?!

I have some sneaky plans up my sleeve.
Be prepared for lots of red and pink in January, in preparation for Valentine's Day.

And don't forget to enter in the DeerLola giveaway. It closes tonight @ 10 pm CST.

I need to go rest on the couch now. All these plans have me exhausted,
and I haven't even told you how much talking I have done. The weekend is almost over so I need to rest up.

I love The Old Spaghetti Factory! Yum. I bet it was a blast having an old friend come on through. Sounds like a fun filled weekend.

Sounds like you had a great weekend! Although you didn't sew anything this weekend you did spend your sewing time emailing a very confused, but excited Midwest girl who can't wait to get her custom Gussy Bag! Thanks for all of your help yesterday Maggie, you are the best, best, best! (0:
