From the Weekend

June 18, 2012

I hope you all had a productive but relaxing and fun weekend.  And I fully believe it can be both relaxing and productive at the same time.  Aaaand, I hope you got to celebrate Father’s Day!

I managed to do all of those things.  It’s amazing how busy the weekends can feel sometimes so I was happy to have a Saturday with nothing planned and no obligations, except to sleep in.  And 7:45 it totally sleeping in these days.  I feel old, wah wah.

I managed to make it to the Farmers’ Market to splurge on organic cherries plus I had to get some garlic scapes.  I lucked out because the lady I bought these from told me this would be the last week they had any.

Also made it to Target to buy a certain someone a birthday gift.  No, it wasn’t Joey.  My niece is 1 today!

Ended Saturday with date night at Bonefish.  I may have frightened our waitress when she said “Would you like to start with some Bang Bang Shr–” and I basically screamed yes before she even finished the sentence.

We were really tempted to just take a nap in the car, but ended up making it to see Snow White and the Huntsmen instead.  For a movie starring Kristen Stewart, the movie was pretty good.

As for Father’s Day, my mom cooked.

Joey took a sudden interest in reading and spent 10 minutes trying to bounce a grape into my mouth.

My sister wore a cowboy hat.

My dad laughed hysterically over my post to him.  Guess he liked it!

And I took candid pictures of it all.

Birthday festivities followed.

I’m still wondering why it isn’t socially acceptable to look like this on your birthday as an adult.

And did you know 1-year old birthday parties are just an excuse for everyone to act like a kid?

Now it’s Monday and just looking at weekend pictures makes me sad.  Here’s to hoping the next 5 days fly by.


What did you do this weekend?

Have you ever seen/heard of/used garlic scapes?

When’s the last time you acted like a kid?
