Football Banquet at Williams Golf & Country Club

Last Sunday (November 13) was the football banquet.  We got ready  a little early so we took some family pictures while waiting for the time for us to go to the venue of the said event.  I love it when my men are all dressed up.  They don't really dressed up often so it's fun to see them  all spiffy and prim.  
The event was held at  Williams Golf and Country Club  in Marland Heights Weirton, WV.   Driving to the place is a real treat,  the golf  course is  beautiful.  
Williams Golf & Country Club is located in the heart of Weirton, West Virginia.  It is established in 1932, the club features an 18-hole, par 72 golf course and a clubhouse renowned for its banquet and dining facilities. 
Williams  Golf and Country Club  is rated in the top ten of West Virginia’s best golf courses. It  is beautiful and well maintained.  Its layout offers challenge for players at every level. 
According to their website, over the years Williams has been the site of three West Virginia Open tournaments and numerous Tri-State, PGA and other events.
It was a really good way of ending the football season, for family and friends to get together and have some good conversation while enjoying delicious food.
My husband worked on this business establishments 30 years ago when he was a teenager and he said that almost everything is still the same inside the reception hall.  He said that there was this rich guy  who was  a frequent client at the club and every Christmas he would give a dollar to someone.  At one time my husband  got the lucky dollar and his friends were teasing him about that.  I told him that he should have kept the dollar as a souvenir lol.
The place looks  old but still well maintained.  The high ceiling is  beautiful but you can tell that  it is really old.
All the players sat in one long table.    It gave all of the the chance to talk to each other before they part ways.  The Jr. Dons football is consist of two catholic schools, St. Joseph and St. Paul.
The Banquet hall has a stunning view of the Ohio river.
While waiting for the program to start, we were able to walk around and take pictures.
I love the furniture and paintings that they have.  You can tell they're old but still beautiful.
It is awesome to see our kids socialize with their friends even though they don't go to the same school but they are united through sports.
Most of these kids will go to the same catholic  high school which is Madonna.
Through out the  football season, I have meet some  good people and became friends  with a few of them.
I hope that next football season will be as  fun as this year.  They did not win a game bu they learned a lot and they have fun so that's what mattered the most.  
The family that I got closer with won't be doing the next season.  I am going to miss them.
I applaud  the parents who  put together this event.  They have done a  wonderful job in preparing everything.  The program and the  names with  meals are set upon  the entrance so we just  picked ours.  We were the first ones there so we wondered why they were two sets of our name, it must have been a mistake.  

There was an appetizer served before the main course.  They served  salad and  fresh baked bread.   My daughter and I had salmon hollandaise and my husband had steak.  Our son had chicken.
Dessert was also served after wards.
The warding ceremony  was done after we ate.
On our way home, we stopped at one  part of the road  and took some pictures.
It was one wonderful  event that we all enjoyed.  Looking forward to a new season next year.
I was wearing an earth toned dress so the lip locked stain "shae" was a perfect lippie!  It contains primer stain, and kip gloss ion one.  I love that it lasts even after  I ate and the shade really compliment my skin tone.  
 This month's  Beauty Box 5 has the  theme "It's too cold for a naked face".  It has a deep conditioning hair mask that I truly loved, I used it three times.  The hair mask  repairs damage and breakage to your hair.  I love love love the smell of it.  It also has a  pack of make up remover  cleansing towellets.  Although I don't use make up, it is  great to have it in my purse especially when we go somewhere and I want to refresh my face.  It is unfortunate that the shadow trio  was  damaged during the transit.  The angle brush as a great addition too.  
Overall, it was a really great event.  We had fun and our bellies were full!

Moisturizing Lipstick for Fall

"Boss Babe Comin' Thru"
October - Beauty Box 5 
October is almost done, how time passes by so  fast!  A lot of things happen, a lot of things have been accomplished at home, and a lot of things have changed.  October was a  month of surprises for  my family.  Hubby and I have been working on   some home improvements and glad to see some  things getting accomplished.  The only day off we have is Sunday but it is all good, I love  DIYs!
 My partner-in-crime for sick over the weekend but glad that she have recovered quickly.  I had to sleep in her room for two  nights to  take  care of her because she couldn't  sleep.   Soup and ginger tea were part of the healing process for her.  The change in the weather  really affects a lot of us.  When the kids goes to school and  some of the  children  in school are sick, chances are, they will get  the sickness as well.  Hopefully we killed all the germs that made her sick. We sanitized the house  over the weekend.
 The contents for this month's Beauty Box 5 items include, ivory lace highlighter pencil by chella, Femme gold or red fragrance from Color Me, custom nail appliques by Emery and Ivory, moisturizing lipstick by Real Her, and ultra hydrating body cream by Amlactin.
 My favorite is the fragrance and the lipstick.  I also like the hydrating body cream, it is a must have for my skin that easily dries up whenever the cold season starts.  The body cream  gently exfoliates and it deeply hydrates.  I will ave to buy a  big size of this body cream.
 The citrusy note of the Color Me perfume is so nice.  I like having this  tiny bottle perfume in my purse, it's a nice  hing to have especially when you go somewhere.
 I am not fond of using  custom nail appliques so it is my least favorite of the five products.

The moisturizing lipstick  is a nice one as it is a perfect marriage of  gloss and matte.  I love  the shade and the fact that it doesn't make my lips feeling cracked or dry.  It's funny whenever I put a little bit of make up on, my husband or my kids would ask "What's the occasion?"  Lol.  I just don't use make up too often so it's an odd thing for them when they see me with make up on.
