Weekend Recap

On Friday night, our friend celebrated his 30th birthday. He played a show in Santa Monica so after work, we headed out to help him celebrate! He did such a great job...go Eric!

Before the show, C and I went to eat dinner at Umami Burger. I know we're supposed to be being good, but this was a treat for both of us. We definitely made up for it in the gym the entire weekend, but it was worth it!

On Saturday C and I slept in big time, and didn't get our hike started until after 2:30 pm. The hike is about 1.5 hours one way so by the time we were coming down the mountain, the sun was setting and it was FREEZING! After our hike, we went to the gym to do a little bit of additional cardio and weights.

Speaking of working out, I found the most fabulous pair of workout pants. Here's the link...I highly recommend them. They are capri length and fit like a dream. They don't sag or stretch out, they're really flattering (i.e., takes the jiggly out of the butt), and they're affordable. I'm not sure why Target models always look so bad, but don't let the picture fool you as they really do look great on.

We watched The King's Speech and I thought it was good. Colin Firth played a very convincing King George VI, and the movie was funny, sad, thought-provoking, and inspiring. I don't think it's Best Picture material, and I can think of at least a couple of other movies more worthy of that title.

Sunday was another sleeping in kind of day. It was rainy and dreary out so after the gym, I stayed on the couch and caught up on some tv and movies while C went over to a friend's house for dinner. I watched Leap Year, which I thought was kind of lame. But Matthew Goode is pretty cute and he had an accent :)

I also watched the SAG Awards (well, I recorded it and fast forwarded through all of the bs), and thought that Nicole Kidman, Tina Fey, Natalie Portman, Hailee Steinfeld, and January Jones looked beautiful. I was scratching my head about Sofia Vergara, Amy Adams, and Angie Harmon.

That sums up my weekend!

Must try umami burger. Were those sweet potato fries in the background by chance?

I NEED to try umami burger. Did you go to the one on Hollywood Blvd?

It sounds like you had a very busy, but fun and active weekend! That burger looks delish and I wouldn’t feel guilty considering you worked it off in the gym and your hike. I’ll have to checkout Target’s workout wear. I’m slowly getting back into the gym.

I haven’t seen The King’s Speech and I don’t know if I will in the theater. It does sound good.

P.S. I’ve been meaning to answer you about the floral marbles for the V-day craft. You can pick them up at Michaels or any craft store. They look like regular marbles, but they’re a little smaller. They come in a netted bag and one bag is more than enough for the project.
