Weekend Post-Mortem

'Twas a lovely weekend chez nous, exactly what I needed before launching into the craziness of the new job. Friday afternoon, I cleaned out my desk, and headed out a whole 10 minutes early! I headed down to the market, did some window shopping, and then LB came and met me for dinner. We had a gift certificate to Mama Grazzi's, so we decided to head over and have some free dinner. The tiramisu is excellent, it was a very relaxing dinner. From there, we walked down to see Jim Bryson and Baby Eagle play at the First Baptist Church. The show was phenomenal. We had an incredible time, the sound was terrific, and Jim told as many stories as he sang songs. We were also very pleasantly surprised by Baby Eagle, the side project of Steve from the Constantines {and also my favourite Constantie}. He was a total trooper, bringing along a guitarist with him since he had broken his hand and couldn't play, a challenge for a one-man accoustic set.

Saturday we enjoyed the sunshine by doing all of our errands on foot. We stocked up on baby gifts for the new babies in our lives {well, our relatives lives in particular}, did some window shopping, and loaded our packs with groceries. Saturday night, Daphna and I used knitting as a pretense to get together, and ended up just hanging out and chatting for hours. She made me the most delish rustic italian dinner...

Sunday was filled with cooking in the morning, then coffee and shopping with Laurin in the afternoon. Sunday night we went to Paul and Amber's for a little Oscar party action, and we cheered for out favourites, jeered the celebritities we don't like, and dissected everyone's outfits on the red carpet. The winners for me were Jennifer Garner and Cate Blanchett. They both looked absolutely stunning!
