A Great Weekend

Happy Monday, dear friends.  Hope y'all had a great weekend.  It is a cold, rainy, miserable Monday here in The Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

We had a fairly busy weekend.  I did manage to peek in on another small Christmas fair and an art fair.  I wasn't there very long but I did take a few pics. 

The holiday fair was sponsored by the Newcomers Club in Hanover. The Mister was in cookie heaven.

This lovely lady is the author of a children's book.

I stocked up on these for the girls' visit next week.

The Mister and I went to see this movie.  For being such a handsome guy, Jake nails it as a creepy sociopath.  The film was a little slow in the beginning, but made up for it in the end.  There is a chase scene in it that should come with a warning:  Wear Depends!  Although this movie is very entertaining, I would wait to see it when comes out on Netflix. 

I've got two new favorite things.  

A couple of weeks ago, a sweet girl waited on us in a restaurant.  I couldn't help but notice her gorgeous, long, dark eye lashes.  I asked her what brand of mascara she was wearing and she was kind enough to spill her secret.

Naturally, after leaving lunch, I broke the speed limit making my way over to Sephora and snatched one up.  So glad I did.  I love it!  It is easy to apply and does not clump.  It makes my lashes look thick.  Just like my thighs.   

I have a few grey blond eyebrow hairs that manage to make an appearance whenever I am dressed up and going somewhere.  This brow mascara by Maybelline works wonders to camouflage them and stays on all day.  Great price, too!

Stay warm and dry!
