Things I am Digging!

We saw a screening of "Shutter Island" last night. REALLY interesting movie. We went with the boys parents, and we all said that we would like to go back and see it again because the way that the movie unfolds, I know that there were things that I missed. Not a really fast moving movie, but very good and I would recommend seeing it. The score to the movie really added to it, and for any of you "All My Children" fans out there, Jill Larson (from Minnie) who plays Opal, is in one of the opening scenes and is REALLY scary looking!!!
We have been sucked into the Olympics and loving every minute of it. We missed last night but have it recorded and tonight my wine club is having a tasting "An Event of Olympic Proportions - Winter". We did this for the Summer Olympics 2 1/2 years ago and it was a lot of fun. Everyone picks an athlete, does some research on them, chooses a wine from the region they represent and brings a food item to pair with it. We are having it at a members community room where the Olympics will be on as well, should be a ton of fun!
If it was outside, I would be wearing my new hat and scarf to represent, but instead I will just wear it there!
Last weekend, the boy and I had lunch at Cheesecake Factory for Valentine's Day and then took in a couple of movies. "Edge of Darkness" and "Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief". They were both good movies, but I think that we were both surprised by the latter movie, we thought it was going to be more of a kids movie, which I think it is, but we really enjoyed it as well. 
While we were out and about last weekend, we strolled through my favorite Lilly store and they had these, so you know I just had to pick one up! I am so excited for Spring to be here now! I bought the Lator Gator! 

This weekend is going to be a big test for my shoulder and to see how well I can do for long periods out and about. With the wine event tonight, plus a wedding reception tomorrow night and The Minnesota Food and Wine Experience Sunday, it is going to be a FULL weekend! We are volunteering Sunday at VIP tasting which should be a lot of fun. The reception Saturday is going to be at a very nice restaurant in St. Paul and I thought I would wear a LBD, not sure which one of these I will wear, but I picked up a few after the holidays this year. The hardest thing to even think about right now is putting on stockings, it is NOT going to be fun or easy!

I think that it is going to be a game time decision, but the hard thing is I am so so so pasty white, I am not sure if any of them will look all that great! 
I spoke to my boss from work yesterday. I think they are getting a little desperate for me to come back. But I have a few issues that are holding me back at the moment, one is driving, two is putting on shoes and socks. . .we will see how this weekend goes and then make a decision. . . what are your plans for the weekend?
