Weekend Recap

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????

We did the full fridge scrub down last weekend, it looks so amazing and it's nice to know that the place we store our food is very clean and sanitary. I keep thinking I should do it more often, maybe it should be on the monthly chore list? LOL.

We went to the niece's 9th bday party Saturday night, that was a lot of fun. :)

i love that your fridge is 'dressed.' that is exactly how i felt after i went grocery shopping last night. so calming to have that all squared away.

What a great weekend! I'm moving to a new community in a week and found out they have a service project committee for building more trails for running and walking! I'm defintely thinking more about volunteering for especailly after seeing you being busy and still having time for something as important as helping others! Thanks for the inspiration!!

What a fun weekend! I'm so jealous you've seen 500 Days of Summer, not once, but twice!! I want to see it soon!

I cooked jambalaya and drank wine with the girls on Friday night, and that was definitely the highlight of my weekend :)
