Friday Fun Day

I’ve been on a roll with my football picks lately after a pretty lame start to the year. For my winning dinner, I wanted to go to downtown Saratoga.  As we got close, the traffic was really backed up and we took a side route around and then figured out what was going on. It was the Victorian stroll where the downtown is blocked off to traffic and bunches of people gather. We went to it one year, but the crowds!  So, it was plan B, which was driving in the opposite direction LOL.  I saw a sign for a new restaurant called BWP and made a snap decision to go there.

Turns out BWP stands for Beer, Wine and Pizza!  It wasn’t crowded (since everyone was downtown).  The service was very friendly and the place was quite nice.  I decided on a hamburger. The Bleu burger:

Yum!!  It had bacon on it and a bleu cheese dressing of some kind. I definitely would come back here.  Maybe after I win this week’s picks, too.

I did some shopping at the mall. It was during the day, so not crowded.  Check these out:

I swear, we might have to host an ugly sweater party 😀

Then I stumbled on this:

All of this stuff – every single piece — is for the eyebrows.  ????  Are eyebrows such a thing? I will admit that I am au naturale with mine. No plucking, no penciling. Nothing.  Maybe that’s a good thing because how do you afford all this stuff just for eyebrows?

It’s getting a little cold for our traditional Friday night beer walks. We are thinking of turning them into Film Noir nights with the fireplace going — and maybe some nog. Speaking of the fireplace, John decorated the mantle:

I only moved one thing 😀  (The red vase).  The mirror is always there, not just for Christmas. Don’t you love Pixie’s tiny stocking? I’ll probably just roll up some paper balls and put them in there since that is her favorite toy. That or twist ties.

I have a show this Sunday to do. In the home stretch now! At least it’s only 2 miles from home.  Have a great weekend!

    Pixie!! Isn’t it funny how the simplest things are so fun for the animals AND small children! 🙂

    So I have no eyebrows at all so I do get it!!!! If I had the money, I would get those permanent things done. I did once way back when or they can implant now like hair. It is a waste to draw in. They always comes off or I have to scratch an itch due to my bangs & voila, eyebrows gone! 🙂

    That hamburger does look fun 🙂

    And I’m trying to figure out what store you were in that had those sweaters AND the eyebrow display! I’ve never seen such a big display just for eyebrows. And thankfully, I’ve never seen sweaters like that either 🙂

    I wear makeup, but I’m coming to find all the stuff for eyebrows and face contouring to be over the top.

    I was taught makeup should simple enhance what you have — not make you look made up and different.

    Lovely mantle! “Only moved one thing…” lol 😀

      I wear makeup as well, but just eyeliner and mascara.

      I’m such a perfectionist that it’s hard for me to leave stuff alone. I was proud to only move one thing LOL

    That hamburger looks amazing! And eyebrows are a huge thing – mine are very sparse and light, and I’ve tried to enhance them with a brow pencil, but that was a challenge to figure out, as you saw with ALL THE PRODUCTS out there…it’s overwhelming!

    I definitely understand the eyebrow thing. I am always looking for the “perfect” eyebrow makeup. I must have about four on hand right now. Threw out one yesterday. I don’t like to be seen in public without my eyebrow makeup. Of course, when I go to swim class, there go the brows!
