Would you believe I had my Canon with me the whole weekend and yet here is a post full of only grainy iPhone pictures? Well believe it, because it's true.
Anyhoozle, I had a grand weekend stuffed full of family fun. Though, what was supposed to be a food tour of San Francisco's best eateries basically just turned into brunch at Judy's followed by a cream cheese stuffed french toast induced nap coma (see below photo for reference), then lunch at Marengo for some amazing sliders, an afternoon snack pick-up from Jay's Cheesesteaks for my 30 week pregnant sister-in-law, then some wonderful MSG-filled Chinese delivery for dinner. I was promptly asleep Saturday night by 10:30pm.
Sunday was Easter, as you know, and we spent the greater part of the day lounging in the Fort Mason park by my house. The sun was out, the wind was just right, and we were allowed to drink alcohol in public. Amazing circumstances, as I'm sure you would agree. Little Melody was completely fearless and made sure to make friends with every single dog there. Even the one that collided with her at full speed and sent her flying through the air like a frisbee. She took it like a champ, though, and only cried for about 2 minutes before heading off to the next dog friend.
As I've mentioned before, my niece and The Dizzle are BFF's. When she sees him, her face lights up and she gives him the biggest smile. She'll seek him out, walk up to him, smile, and say, "Hiiii." Then giggle the cutest little laugh there ever was. What a flirt. ;) She has also learned the first part of the Barney song and sang, "I wuv yooouuu" about 638 times this weekend, each just as cute as the first and of course melting The Dizzle's heart just a little more each time. At the end of this weekend, The Dizz informed me that I must give him a daughter someday.... #heartmelted (Have I mentioned how much I love this man of mine?)
After many hours at the park, foreheads burnt from lack of sunscreen, it was time to say goodbye as they needed to catch their flight back to San Diego. We can't wait to head down there this July to see that new baby boy that's due!
I would like to say Verner and I were responsible adults and went home to cook a sensible meal and got to bed early after a gluttonous-filled weekend, but instead I must share that the alcohol got the better of us. We continued to drink more because, well, that seemed to be the only logical idea (as it always seems to be when you're that many drinks deep).
Then we went to the grocery store to pick up dinner.
"Dinner" consisted of the following:
Yup. Pizza strips, vegetarian corn dogs, and Weight Watchers popsicles. Well rounded, indeed.
Now it's Monday again, and I'm back on the saddle of clean eating and no drinking until Friday night, to which all hell breaks loose and rules are thrown out the window! But come on now, isn't that what weekends are for anyway?
Hope you had a great Easter weekend, friends! :)
