Weekend Update

A bit late, I know, but I'm kind of stuck in a blogging rut/slump/whatever right now.  However, I do have to tell you that there will be an exciting post tomorrow, so be on the lookout!

So, here's what I did this weekend:

I had a big day on Friday at work.  We held our inaugural "Girls' Night Out."  Basically, 20 of our female participants from 2012 came to our learning center for a free event.  Our goal of these events is to help these young female golfers get to know each other.  We played a few golf games, hit some golf balls on our golf simulator, did arts and crafts, and the girls made their own healthy trail mix.  We know golf is very male-dominated [even many of our programs are, overall we serve only about 29% girls], and we believe that if these girls get to know each other, they might be more likely to stick with our organization and the game.  We are having a second one of these events right before Valentine's Day, so if anyone knows of any great Valentine's crafts, games, or snacks, please link me to them!

We took a group photo at the beginning of the night and the girls made frames for them.  [I'm in the maroon sweater, in the middle row, on the left.]

I love geckos!

Trail mix!

Saturday was spent relaxing, cleaning [for next weekend's big Super Bowl party], with Mike's family for dinner, and watching The Big Lebowski with my roommates.
Framed a new photo for our roommate photo of the year.  I can't believe this is the 4th year of this house!  It's fun to see how the roommates in the house have changed [there have been a total of 8 of us] over the years.

On Sunday, I had a "girls day" with a few of my friends.  We went to Ikea and I [obviously] spent far too much money.  We finished the night with some Papa John's and SVU.  It was a perfect weekend.
Finished our spice racks, added a cookie jar [in front of the pot holder], and added candles in the kitchen.
Bought some fabric to make door snakes and a few extras.
