The weekend, in pictures

Friday nights, while Saul is out in the city somewhere, coaching his soccer team to inevitable victory (durr - he is the greatest coach ever), I am usually hanging out with friends or enjoying the evening in. With wine, of course.

Also, this chick.

Saturday, I gave myself a mani/pedi.
I hate salons. I hate other people touching my feet. Also, the leg massages? They don't feel that awesome to me. More like torture, really.

We met up with some friends downtown at the Flying Saucer and had some delicious beer and food.

They have like, over 300 beers available at this place, and you can become part of the UFO Club by drinking 200 of them. You get your name on a saucer which goes on the wall, if you complete the challenge.

There are a shit ton of saucers on the walls.

Mmmm....Alaskan smoked salmon sandwich with jalapeno pesto-cream cheese, red onion, tomato, Swiss cheese, capers and lettuce on marble rye. With a pickle!

Saul and I bid the friends adieu and then it was off to Lucky Strike for some post-dinner, pre-concert cocktails.

And then on to House of Blues for Amos Lee!!! When we first started dating, Saul introduced me to his music and I was instantly in love. We used to hang out, drink, and listen to his album over and over. This was the second time we've seen him live and the concert was amazing.

Sunday, I got to take pretty pictures of one of my favorite families EVER.

This little stinker is seriously one of my favorite kids on the planet. And if you know me, I really only say that about family members, but I'm pretty sure me and his mom were meant to be related, so it works.

Hope your weekends were great, your V-Days were full of love (and champagne, like mine...hehe), and your Hump Day is FAST!

The last First Date

5 years ago today I was sitting in my office, checking the clock every few minutes, willing it to go faster and at the same time, cussing it for moving so quickly. I was wearing a blue shirt, jeans and heels. My hair was blown out and I was wearing make up (gasp!).

Saul and I were going on a date.

Saul and I had only met up with mutual friends before this. Tonight, we'd be on our own. I was an excited, anxious, mess.

5 years later, he put a ring on it ;)

Even though we have a wedding anniversary to celebrate now, I think it's important to remember how we started. How we got to that sweet wedding. How lucky we were to find each other.

Most girls say their wedding day is the best or most important day of their lives and while our wedding day was a blast, I have to say I completely disagree...

...the best day of mine was February 9th, 2006 - the night of my very last First Date.

Ice, ice baby!

If you've watched the news at all this week, you know there is some freaky shit happening in the southern US - namely, we're all freezing our freaking asses off.

The city pretty much started shutting down yesterday afternoon, even though nothing had happened yet. Overnight rain, sleet and snow swept through the area and we all woke up to rather frosty conditions.

No snow in our area, but everything is covered in a layer of ice. The roads are a mess, and the big toll road that loops around the city is completely shut down.

I am at home, working in my living room, watching the news and sitting in front of the fireplace. If you're out in this nasty stuff today, stay warm and drive safely.

I can't freaking wait until summer.

Not grilling anything tonight!

Temperature is below freezing...

I almost bit it, trying to walk on the deck to get this picture.
