Just what weekends were created for; service, chilling, movies, Thai food, Italian food, and prepping.
The weekend started off with a service project that Hubby and I did in our community called "Bless Redlands". We gathered along with 300 other people from churches all over our city to go out and serve. Hubby led a team that did some landscaping for a local senior center, and I led a group that went to a convalescent home.
My group baked cookies and made cards for the Seniors and then went to the home and did chair excersises with them and played games. It was a wonderful time and I hope to go back and visit very soon.
I need to make more of an effort to step out and serve my community, this really open my eyes to what I can really do for others. It may have seen so small to me, but it was HUGE to them.
After our morning of service I headed over to Sprint to help my Boss Sandra get her new iPhone! It was a 2 hour process, she was like a little kid at Christmas it was sooo cute.
We then relaxed at her house with some other girl friends and watched Arrested Development, and had a little vino.
We then all decided to go our for Thai food and see then see the movie 500 Days of Summer. I love me some Thai food!
Sandra and I spilt two of my faves, Pad Thai and the Yellow Curry Tofu.
Fortune cookies always remind me of Pac Man.
I got the best fortune ever, I think I shall frame this one.
We had some pretty conversations at dinner about hands free cell phones, I think Carly came up with the perfect alternative to a blue tooth.
500 days of summer was pretty good, I don't think I would see it again but it was entertaining.
This morning I had a 6 mile run with my cross-country team, it was 3 miles straight up hill and they rocked it!!!!
After Church I wrote down a quick list of things to tackle today, I knew I didn't have time to do it all but it's nice to have everything written down.
First things first I made a quick healthy wrap. I took a WW Tortilla and topped it with Light Laughing Cow Cheese, Avocado, Spinach, Tomatoes, and Sprouts.
Then I made it into a taco...mmmmm
I then went to town on the refrigerator, it needed a major scrub down. Here is the end product, I was pretty proud. Ignore the Sprite in the Fridge, I don't know where it came from?!
After I cleaned the entire kitchen and dining room I went to the Market to pick up groceries.
I got some more Avocados for only 5o cents a piece! I love getting deals!
Now our fridge is dressed for the week.
After shopping Hubby and I headed out to a new Italian Restaurant in town called Ramona's, for our friends Baby Shower dinner. The first thing we noticed were the two stadium seats in the lobby purchased from Wrigley's field!!!!
I will have to do a full review on this restaurant once I have their pizza!!! We started with bread, which I had two wonderful pieces of.
Along with their house Cab.
My entree came with soup and salad, this tomato bisque soup was to die for!!!
I had about half of my salad and then my main meal came out.
Chicken Penne Gorgonzola, I shall just call it heaven. I knew that this white cheese was going to tear up my tummy, but I didn't care because it was amazing!
I ate about half of it and I could have eaten every last bit but I was saving room for Dessert! Look at this beautiful cake, I was pretty full so I really didn't have more then a bite, but I did steal a couple of those chocolate chips off the top ;)
Hubby ate my piece of cake like a champ!
Mama Corbitt and her kiddo's, Daddy was called in to work (he is a fire fighter) there are some pretty big fires in town!
I got to get some baby time in, don't be getting any ideas now ;).
I am just fine with having my baby at home... Bosco!
Now we are practicing our Sunday resting position... he likes to copy me :).
I still have quite a few things to get checked off my list before the weekend is officially over, 1.5 hours until bed time!!!!
What was the highlight of your weekend????
