It was a beautiful weekend here. I worked outside in my yard for a few hours. I got some things done, but I have about a million more to do. Yesterday, my friend Gay had a belated birthday supper for my friend Tom and me. She grilled chicken, and she made black bean soup from my mom's recipe for my birthday present. It was SO GOOD! I haven't had it in ages. She also made asparagus, homemade sangria, pasta salad, crescent rolls, and tirimisu (sp?) for dessert. Even though I've been really trying to watch what I eat, I couldn't resist that! Several friends were there, and it was a nice get-together. Emily P. said that she was headed over to Christian and Ali's (friends from Godspell) new place for their housewarming party when she left Gay's. Heather and I decided to crash that party too, and it turned out to be a late night. I never stay out until 11:30 on a school night! It was fun, but I'll probably be regretting it today.
Saturday afternoon/evening, I went to Emma's dance recital. So cute! It was so fun seeing her up there on stage doing her thing. Jack was so good too. I wondered how a two-year-old would do in the audience for an hour and a half, but it went really well. The music teacher at my school was sitting next to me with her family, and their one-year-old, Addison, became my new best friend. She wanted to sit on my lap, and you all know what a sucker I am for babies! I couldn't get enough of that little cutie! It was a really nice evening.
