145.2...Pretty In Pink
It was raining Friday night so we decided to stay in. I made some fettuccine with marinara sauce for dinner. Easy.
Saturday was spent doing laundry, catching up on emails and cleaning up around the house.
Lunch was a tuna on a salad:
I took the kids to see Zootopia at Cinepolils. It was SUCH a cute movie! We all loved it!
Dinner was at Mia Francesca. I ordered a red fish topped with pesto and white anchovies.
While it was good, it wasn’t anything to write home about.
I went to Lisa’a house for a baby shower to celebrate our beautiful friend Lauren’s new twin baby girls!
Everyone wore pink and Lisa decorated her home with pink everywhere. Even the drinks were pink!
The baby shower was a tea complete with all sorts of tea sandwiches and little finger foods.
Lisa even made the most beautiful pink diaper cake!
We played a couple of baby shower games. One where the challenge was to guess what candy bar was melted in each diaper! You could do it by sight, smell or taste. I thought it was pretty hilarious and disgusting!
Dessert was just as spectacular as the rest of the shower!
Time to open gifts!
Congratulations Lauren and thank you to Lisa for putting on a beautiful shower! Love you both!!
The party wasn’t over then. I had event #2 later that night. We went with some friends to the Jewish Family Service Heart & Soul Gala at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla. There was a cocktail hour, followed by dinner in the ballroom.
The first course was a goat cheese and blue cheese tart.
It was pretty tasty and very rich!
The main course was salmon.
Aside from it being a bit overcooked (for me), I thought it was pretty good!
Dessert was a couple of different mousse type desserts. My husband got a chocolate one so I traded him my fruit one for his. :)
So….I’m not digging this time change. It was dark when I got up this morning! No thank you!!
The kids didn’t have school today because it was parent-teacher conferences. I went to my meetings, then ran errands.
Lunch was the Seared Ahi Ginger Bowl at Green Spot Salad Company.
Yum!! The only thing this place is missing is Sriracha. May have to bring my own next time….
When was the last time you went to a baby shower?
