Weekend Update

"Good evening.  I'm Chevy Chase, and you're not." 

I know I'm dating myself because I remember Chevy Chase doing the Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live.  I didn't watch SNL this weekend (actually, I don't watch it anymore) but I did have one of the best weekends in a long time!  It was a non-stop weekend and I didn't feel like I needed a weekend from my weekend. 

Everything started with installing a new sink and faucet in one of the bathrooms.  We were without one sink for a week as we tried to work on it last weekend and it didn't come together.  So we left it for the week and tackled it again on Friday and we got it in, and ..... it works!  Cooked some Mahi Mahi for dinner then on to my volleyball match for the night.  We didn't win but I was up and ready for the games.  I had fun despite the losses. 

Best of The Brothers Cazimero, Vol. 3Saturday was a quiet morning with coffee and the paper then on to a great workout (you'll understand why in a few lines).  Ran a few errands and met up with my husband to finish some shopping.  Back home and got ready for a date night.  We almost forgot what that was, it had been so long since we've gone out.  Went out to a fantastic dinner.  Here's why I had to work out:  sourdough bread, clam chowder, a heavenly salad (spinach with bacon and a creamy dill vinaigrette dressing - a taste explosion when I took my first bite), sturgeon for dinner with a creamy lemon sauce, of course wine to drink, and crème brûlée for dessert.  I belonged to the clean plate club, and if we weren't in public, I would have considered licking those plates clean.  But the night was not over.  Off to the symphony and seeing The Brothers Cazimero perform.  No, they are not a circus group.  They are brothers, duh, who are Hawaiian singers.  I love Hawaiian music and this was a fabulous night.  (Here's a link to one of my favorite Hawaiian songs, "Pua Hone") There were also a few Hula dancers and we were so close we could smell the lei's fragrant aroma.  Oh how I wish I was in Hawaii right now!

Sunday was a full day of volleyball for my daughter and her team made it to the finals of the consolation bracket.  Too bad they didn't win but they were playing pretty good volleyball in the end.  My daughter missed the last tournament because she got a concussion from an errant ball that hit her in the head.  She is feeling much better and was very excited to play again. 

It was a great weekend and I hope yours was a good one too.
