Weekend Rewind (a little delayed)

This past weekend I didn't do much, and it was lovvelly (said like Eliza Dolittle).

Well, my weekend sort of started on Thursday night. I went to see My Fair Lady with the Junior League - we watched the final dress rehearsal. It was a good performance, just longggggg. Beforehand the "little leaguers" and I grabbed wine and apps at Artista.

(Sidenote - I have become absolutely terrible at taking pictures the past year. terrible. I am disappointed in myself. I'm hoping to remedy that).

Friday night I went bowling with some friends for our friend's bowling for Leukemia event.

Saturday I went to see Breaking Dawn with a co-worker/friend of mine. We saw it at 10:30 am, thinking the theater wouldn't be packed, we were wrong. We still managed to snag some seats in the middle in order to best view the cheesiness. And man, it did not disappoint with the cheesiness. What can I say - I read all the books - I have to see the movies. Patrick doesn't understand, but I told him that it is not important for him to understand.

The afternoon I dealth with a dead battery and ended up at a bar across the street from the battery place for 3 hours. No, I do not have a problem - as my parents asked. Ha. It was originally only supposed to take 1 hour, and 1 turned into 2 turned into 3. What can you do.

That night Patrick and I watched the last Harry Potter movie - which we originally saw when we were in Vegas this past summer. We are that cool.  (BTW - I owe a post about the Garth Brooks concert we went to in vegas in July. It was ah-mazing.)

Sunday was a household domestic duties day. Nothing exciting to report!

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving tomorrow, especially our first thanksgiving with my new niece who is now almost one month old. My how time flies.

I am thankful for a lot of things this year. Especially that little nugget above.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wow! It has been 5 months since I last blogged. Time has flown by. Lots of things happened in those 5 months, and I won't even begin to catch the blogger world up. The two most important, however, should be mentioned:

1. I got a NEW JOB. I switched firms in July. I am now an attorney at a civil defense litigation firm, and I could not be happier. I am a lot busier (hence the lack of blogging) but its a good busy.

2. My niece was born on Halloween! Scarlett Ava was born 4 1/2 weeks early at 4 lbs 14 oz, but is doing great! She is so strong and teeny tiny. I already love her so much. My sister is doing great, and transitioned into motherhood fabulously. Here is a photo of my ScarAva:

I have taken so many pictures already of this cute little peanut, but haven't had a chance to upload them to facebook or blogger. Most are currently residing on my iPhone, which is convenient for me to look at during the day, but not convenient for posting pics on my blog. I cannot wait to see the person this little peanut becomes!

Oh, and because I love the following picture, this summer I went on a fab vacation to Lake Powell, AZ and Las Vegas. Here's a picture I took from the houseboat that we lived on for five days on Lake Powell:

Thank you to my faithful readers who may still exist. I promise more blog posts this upcoming year! Especially with holiday season approaching, I'll have more stories.

Until then, this is Sara, no H.
