My Weekend

I had a great weekend.... but my hubby got sick :(.  Probably because of me. 

Yesterday I woke up early... and by early I mean 7:30am. That's waaaaaay early for a weekend!!  It was our company's first Highway Clean-up for 2010.  We have two miles (that the company adopted years ago) designated for us to keep trash free. :)  I'm really glad I went.  This year I'd like to help out our little community more.  One "bad" thing that did happen was I got two cuts (they were teeny, but there was quite a lot of blood) on my left thigh!!!!! 

Every highway clean-up the company comes up theme on what to wear (a few past clean-up attire; rasta wear, wacky hats, tacky tourist).  We had to wear GREEN this time around.... so I found this old tee from Abercrombie + Fitch and also fashioned me a green fishy headband with a googly eye :).
Saturday night (before the hubby got worse), we went to buy some craft supplies... and enjoyed some dinner together. I also picked up two really pretty dress and skirt patterns from Wally World. They're Cynthia Rowley. I can't wait to sew something up!! Speaking of sewing, Project Runway made it's debut this past week! OMG, so excited it's back in NYC. That's where that show belongs... will be posting about PR soon!
And... today was Lauren's (one of my best-est-est-est friend) baby shower. It was hosted by her family at Tiffany's restaurant. (Tiffany's has such great food!! today we had; kimchee fried rice, shrimp tempura, tofu tempura, spicy pork lettuce wraps, crispy noodles, sizzling steak bites, mochiko chicken, and seafood pancake).  Since Eli wasn't feeling well, he stayed home to rest and I brought him home his favorite, yummy Honey Walnut Shrimp, to cheer him up. :)

It was such a great little get together. Lauren was brought to (happy) tears :) .... I know that she will be such an amazing mother. I can't wait to be an "aunty" again!

The Manuels. :) {cake + cuppies, made by yours truly. I made little fishey flags, but forgot them}
Shanna, Leah, Me, Lauren a.k.a. "Baldy", and Tara
Baby shower tradition... after the gifts are open the daddy get's dressed up like a baby! Leabert was such a good sport for letting me dress him up... and of course I couldn't forget his "bottle".
and... these are the little centerpieces I made for the shower. The theme was "Fish and Poi...".  So I took empty Hanalei poi (oh yummy) plastic containers, lined them with blue tissue paper (to mimic the ocean), filled them with yummy Hawaii snacks (some ocean-ey), and created a little Koi Nobori (Lauren embraces her Japanese culture).

Snacks included, mini nori arare, red iso peanuts, heart shaped arare, honey balls, li hing mui candy, ocean-y animal crackers, and mac nut kisses
Hope everyone else had a great weekend!!!!

Love, S

p.s. I almost forgot to mention that I won another "Itty Bitty Giveaway", from Jessica at Style Obsession. Thanks Jessica, can't wait to wear my ring!!! weeeee. :)

Bummer that the hubby got sick, but sounds like you guys had a good weekend regardless. I can't wait to see what the Cynthia Rowley print looks like....also what you create. :)

I love that little fish headband btw. And can't wait to hear your thoughts on PR...I too love that it's back in NY. It seemed odd to be in LA when fashion belongs in NYC!

Hope you're enjoying the rest of your long weekend!

Sher said...

Your shirt is so cute and the fishy on your hair is perfect! I love it!!

Oh the baby shower looks like so much fun! I would be so touched too if I were Lauren:)

I can't believe I missed the Project Runway Debut! I'll have to find it online, it's my favorite show of all time :)
and your shirt is hilarious, i love it. I definitely need one just like it for those mornings I'm feeling a little grumpy haha.
Hope your hubby feels better in no time! Being sick is never any fun.

Oh! and my photographer isn't exactly my man, haha. He's one of my best friends and we used to date. It's quite complicated now but we're on our way to figuring it out :)
