La Petite Maison Verte: Saving the Daylight - Weekend Recap

Saving the Daylight - Weekend Recap

We had a pretty relaxed weekend here at la petite maison verte.  The weather has cooled down a bit here in Tampa and the three of us (Hudson included!) have been enjoying long relaxing family walks in the sunshine, power-packed Pumpkin Protein Pancakes for leisurely Saturday morning breakfasts at home and Sunday-afternoon trips to the farmer's market.  

Last Saturday evening was the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, a yearly event to celebration the founding of the US Marine Corps on November 10, 1775.  This year, the 236th birthday was celebrated with as much pomp and ceremony as ever.  Brian and I attended the ball here in Tampa and had a great time:  it's always fun to get dressed up, especially seeing my handsome husband in his Dress Blues!  This year we didn't know many of the other attendees so it was fun to meet some new people, dance (even if the music selection was completely lacking in inspiration) and toast to 236 years of valor, sacrifice and dedication to this country.

So handsome in his Dress Blues!

We took it easy on Sunday with a trip to the Hyde Park Village Farmer's Market, Hudson came along for the trip!  

Hyde Park Village is already decorated for Christmas!

Thanks for all the compliments! Molly was SUCH a sweetie and the cake was SO DELICIOUS, I had TWO whole pieces (true story)! The pic with Hudson on the couch was AFTER the Ball (there's no way I would have been frumping around like that beforehand!!) And I was kinda excited to see the Xmas tree....but then I'm a dork like that ;-)

OMG I agree with Colleen - the dress is gorgeous, looks like you had a great time...what are you doing with the dog and the dress? LOL
Also - I'm obsessed with the sweater/skirt/boots outfit. Mind if I pin it?

Heidi - I don't mind if you pin it, I'm flattered! Actually it's a sleeveless dress, I just put the sweater on over top!
