How was your weekend?
Mine went by lightning fast, thanks to a packed agenda. Friday I met up with my lovely friend Shayla — it had been far too long and we had a great time gabbing while shopping. She bought some adorable gifts for Bean that I will have to show when he wears them. Thank you Shayla!
Friday night, I finally acquiesced to Zach and watched the Hunger Games. I haven’t read the books and really have/had no desire to. I’m not big on that genre of books. So I agreed to watch the movie, since I heard it was well done. I hated it. HATED it. What a sick, sick premise. I really had no idea that I’d be watching a plot of masterminds pitting children against one another to fight to the death. I had to stop watching about an hour in. I’m rather shocked that so many people have enjoyed these books and this movie. This seems crazy for me to say since I love reading True Crime, psychological thrillers, etc, but for some reason, this really disturbed me. Am I the only one???
Saturday we had the honor of attending our friend’s baby’s first birthday! Yes it is already that time. One of the little boys in my mommy group has officially become a toddler. She did a fabulous job of creating a fun kid and adult party full of amazing food, vino, toys, etc. It gave me some great ideas for Bean’s upcoming 1st bday ;)
Sunday was more busy-ness as we had plans to meet our friends and there little 4 month old at Green’s Restaurant in SF.
(Yes that is a bloody mary)
Bean was feeling very serious as we waited for our table:
I have to wonder, how have I never been here? It was fabulous. An all vegetarian restaurant right in the Marina with fabulous views. We ordered some buttermilk biscuits, a lemon blackberry scone, and walnut banana bread to start. I kept it light with the minestrone soup as my meal and am sort of regretting not getting Zach’s dish of ciabatta French toast with warm maple syrup. I must return here.
We walked off our meal afterward and was treated to a pretty damn good view:
That was my weekend in a nutshell. Mostly pretty great, minus that horrid movie :P
Here’s to a busy work week!
