Howdy ho there! Happy Final Monday of June! Actually, I’m pretty bummed June is coming to a close, as it’s truly one of my favorite months of the year.
Anyway… I obviously survived The Big Day as you are aware of from reading this post or my million-a-day tweets. Yes, I catered a wedding reception for 200 people and… there were NO catastrophes. I can’t take all the credit, however, as I certainly could not have pulled it off without my savior of an aunt – thank you! I figured at least one embarrassing thing would have happened – a huge spill, a broken dish, flames… something – but, fortunately, I left at the end of the night feeling accomplished, exhausted from being on my feet for seven straight hours, and ready for a drink!
I rushed home, changed out of my soiled black and white, and met up with Miss Courtney for a drink at The Pearl, the one and only modern chic bar in town. I enjoyed a delicious lemon drop – mmm. Anything tastes better with a sugared rim : )
Then we have yesterday… I was pretty much useless. It was an “a lot of nothing” day. I did enjoy a tasty dinner of enchiladas – eggplant & almond! – and a pretty pile of ensalada for dinner. Thanks, Mom.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned before, but my mom is the Queen of Cookies… as in she’s incapable baking a bad batch.
Oatmeal [White & Dark] Chocolate Chip + Coconut, Dried Apricots and Walnuts
The movie we watched afterwards – Remember Me with Robert Pattinson – was the opposite of our summery dinner. It was extremely dark – literally and figuratively. I’m banned from renting the next movie ; )
Oh, in case you were wondering, no exercising occurred this weekend [unless you count seven hours of catering]. So, I started the week on the right [left?] foot with a mini 37-minute run with Courtney. When I am going to get myself to start strength training again?
Gotta go figure out a dinner menu for tomorrow night’s meal with the aunts and uncles. Cooking for six seems like breeze after cooking for 200.
Hope ya’ll are off to a great week! I’ve gotta GIVEAWAY coming your way…
