This Weekend






This weekend it rained. I wasn't complaining though, we have had a very mild winter, like the rest of North America it seems, so it was nice to have a little rinse to revitalize us all. Since it rained the weekend basically became all about eating, as you can see. On Friday night we went out to pizza with my parents and our friend Kelsey. Arugula and Avocado pizza? Yes please! Also, I guest posted on Tammy's blog. You can check that out here, if you wish. I am so happy to have met Tammy through blogging, she is such a genuine and kind person. 
On Saturday we went to a coffee shop by our house and then had a look at a few surfboards. Scott's birthday is coming up, so I tried to take notes as he perused the shop. That night we went to a St. Patricks themed fundraiser for Scott's school. Did I ever tell you he is a P.E. teacher? Well he is, and the fundraiser is put on by the parent's committee to help raise money to pay for special subject teachers, like Scott. It's really too bad that California schools don't automatically have subjects like Physical Education and Art, but fortunately the parents at Scott's school care enough that they pay for these teachers themselves. We are so grateful. Sunday we were very tired. It was rainy and windy so we left the waves for the dolphins and seals, went for a bike ride and then played Zelda and watched Sense and Sensibility. I liked it, Scott thought it was ok. He gets to pick the next movie since this was obviously my pick. It was also our buddy Jason's birthday and today is Scott's sister Kristen's birthday. Happy birthday Jay and Kree!

How was your weekend? What did you do for St. Patrick's day?

Also, speaking of food, I am going to try to do a vegetarian recipe link up this week. How does Wednesday sound? Good. See you then.

  2. Aw thanks friend. I feel the same way about you! =)
    How cool that Scott is a PE teacher. I feel like PE is a really important subject that gets pushed to the side a lot. It's great that he works at a school where the parents understand the importance of movement and physical education

    1. Yes, you are so right! We are lucky that his school has a parent's committee that recognizes the value of play time and exercise.

    1. Hey Sam! Fun weekend! Ever since I've been reading Hunger Games I've wanted to shoot a bow and arrow so badly. Not at animals, just at a target or something. I guess you can do this at a hunting expo coming to our town.

    1. I know! Crazy, right? I'm not positive it's like this everywhere in California now, but it definitely is in his school district. :(

  8. Looks like a great weekend!! Wow, I had no idea that P.E. was not automatically a part of the curriculum out there. That sounds so odd to me. Good thing for fundraisers though!!
