7 Quick Takes Friday

Since it is now the time to start working on/getting Christmas presents for family and friends I decided to knit something for a relative, so here is a sneak peek at the yarn I am using for it :)

Last week Saturday Amanda and I went to a bridal shower for our friend Elena. It was Downton Abbey themed so it was a tea party with delicious sandwiches, scones, fruit, pumpkin squares and tea. The shower was put on by Elena's fiance's family. Before the shower Elena, Amanda and I were able to do a little bit of thrift store shopping at Plato's Closet and I found a couple pieces.
this is what the tables looked like :)

I found this on Pinterest and thought that it was a neat hair idea that I want to try at some point.

Sunday was the performances of "The Conversion of Scrooge" (A Christmas Carol with a Catholic twist) with four of my younger siblings were in. Since they had two performances I helped out backstage during the first show doing odd jobs. Then I Was watching the second performance. It very nice and well done and it felt like you were back in the 1800's. This is the only picture,which was taken by my mother who was the photographer for the play, from the play that I am able to share at the moment.

Even though its the weekend this week is the first week in Advent, which means its only a couple more weeks until Christmas.

I saw this on Facebook

There so much in this post to like! The yarn is beautiful, Tom Hiddleston is rocketing to the top of my "you rock" list, and that ultrasound is totally awesome.
