Adult Night, Weddings, Art Show and Breaking Bad- What I Did This Weekend

25 Sep

I had a wonderful weekend!

I spent Friday night with great friends at Explora’s Adult Night. To clarify, Adult Night is a chance for “adults” to go play in a children’s museum. No kids are allowed! YAY!!!

Saturday I had the pleasure of attending one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been to. Seriously, wedding needs to be in a magazine and it helps that the bride and groom could totally be the models they are so pretty!

The wedding was outside at the groom’s mom’s house. They had these wheat silos they emptied out and they had the bar in there. There were beautiful twinkle lights strung over the dance floor and the tables.  The food was delicious and served family style which was something I had never experienced. It was really amazing because it made us interact with and get to know the other people at our table.

This wedding was so beautiful – great job to everyone involved. And congratulations to Ryan and Lisa!

Burke Family – some of us are missing. And I don’t know why they took it from so far away! We were also doing a mix of silly photos with normal ones – this was in between.

Sunday was dedicated to recovery from the wedding, watching football and most importantly going to an art show the Husband was in! His painting even sold! Congratulations to you Husband.

Sprinkled throughout the weekend the Husband and I watched some episodes of Breaking Bad season two! Yes we have joined the masses. And this show is really amazing! LOVE IT!

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!
