This Weekend

11 Jun

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I sure did

Friday night I hung out with the Husband and Rochelle. We baked for a benefit/bake sale I had to go to the next day. We also made Flirtinis which my friend Arantha reintroduced us to! They were first made popular in Sex and the City – and they were delicious!

What You Need

  • 1 oz. Vodka (or more depending on the type of day you’ve had)
  • 2 oz. Champagne
  • 2 oz. Pineapple Juice

Mix:

  • Pour all three ingredients over ice in your Collins or Highball glass
  • Mix gently
  • Garnish with Maraschino Cherry, if desired

Saturday the Husband and I went to Jemez to a spaghetti benefit dinner then came home and watched the Heat beat the Celtics 😦 Go OKC!!

Then we started catching up on one of our favorite shows True Blood. We don’t have HBO so we can only catch up on those shows when they come out on DVD! I also read the books (called The Sookie Stackhouse aka Southern Vampire Series – and they are great!)

Sunday we watched Gymnastics and cleaned and hung out with the pets!!

It was the Visa championships The Visa Championships serve as U.S. nationals. But this year they also determine the final qualifiers for the Olympic trials, June 28-July 1 in San Jose, which Gianna (sis-in-law gets to go to!)

To get invited to the Olympic trials you had to be in the top eight at the Visa championships or get an invite from Márta Károlyi. Which 2008 Olympic alums Nastia Liukin and Alicia Sacramone did!
