Happy Monday, y'all. It's hard to believe we've got another weekend in the books and only ONE full one left for October. This weekend went by fast. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it.
We started out with a little dinner party at our house on Friday night. Good food, good friends, and cold beverages are always a bonus.
Saturday, I got up and headed back to Fit Club. Got my work out on and had fun with some great gals. Saturday afternoon, my friend Elizabeth, picked me up to go do some volunteer work with the Junior League of High Point. Saturday's fun was with Out of the Garden. We stuffed bags for back packs for kids. The program helps kids who are on free or reduced lunch who may not get a meal on the weekends. I love feeding people in need and this project was so much fun.
We were having our own little "pretend" competition with the other table. We're certainly think we won. HA!
We packed 500 bags in the two hours we were there. Knowing we've fed that many kids in the course of 2 hours is exciting.
I may or may not be a little OCD. I was making sure we had all the good we needed to pack and making sure it was organized.
Sunday was full of adventure, too. A trip to the grocery store, a trip BACK to the gym. Yes, I finally graced the doors of the gym, too. I am getting my fitness mojo back. Knowing I've put on 9 pounds (and knowing you now know it, too) is just the motivation I need. That, and an encouraging word from my girl, Abby, on Saturday morning.
Sunday night, I dressed up and headed out to the Madcap Cottage Grand Opening and Open House in downtown High Point. Over the last several months, I've become friends with Jason and John and wanted to be there to support them. It was the cream of the crop, too!
We were all greeted by Creative Director, Robert Leleux, of Domino, as well as a gracious as always Jason Oliver Nixon. Domino Magazine was their big sponsor and they loved that the spotlight was on High Point.
The crowd was quite large through the majority of the party with designers, friends, and High Point natives all in attendance.
Don't forget the fabulous music and disco ball, too! I think I lost my train of thought mid-conversation several times due to a song that came on--taking me back to my youth in the 80's. What a great party soundtrack!
The crowd was so large, in fact, that it began to spill out into the driveway. Jason and I laughed about the party in the driveway, but I told him this was quite common in the South. We like to stand around in our driveways and have cocktails.
Even their good friend and fellow designer, Thom Felicia, stopped in for some fun.
And it wouldn't be a High Point party without a little campaigning. Marcus Brandon is the hardest working man running for office in High Point. If you haven't met him, give him a call or check him out on Facebook.
I would love to say I stayed for the end, but the party invite said 5 - 7:30 and at 8:45 it was still abuzz. I had to get on home for dinner and bed. It was a huge success, if I do say so myself. Congratulations to you, Jason Oliver and John. We are so glad you've made High Point your home.
