Friday: Worked from home so that I could finally retrieve my car (six freaking days later) and eventually I did. And so far, so good (fingers crossed, knock on wood, throw some salt over my shoulder). After working all day I picked up my cousin Kenji and we went to my brother's frosh/soph basketball game which was an experience in itself. Once Matt got home we all went out to dinner, had some drinks and came home to hang out some more. Twas loverly.
Saturday: Went to breakfast with Kenji while Matt prepared for Sunday. Once Matt got back we picked up my brothers and we all made our way to the zoo!! I was probably the most excited out of everyone because I adore the zoo.
some of my favorite guys!
(my most favoritest is behind the lens)
aw the black bear in the snow, precious.
checking out the giraffes with my brothers.
look at the bebe giraffe!
what a cute and sleepy lion.
and the elephants are hugging! my favorites.
the boys taking a quick break.
the cuteness, oh the cuteness.
Basically tons of cute animals and all sorts of funness with family, my kind of Saturday afternoon. After the zoo we all went to lunch and hung out for a bit before coming home and relaxing and catching up on life for a bit. Our evening plans consisted of trying a new sushi place with my sister and then heading to the Irish bar we found last weekend and played more shuffleboard, woo. All in all, another lovely evening with good times all around.
Sunday: Slept in a bit before walking the Rose Bowl with my mom (gotta prep for that half marathon in May people!). Came home to do some cleaning and Michael Jackson dancing (seriously, The Experience, have you played it yet!?!) before eventually heading over to Matt's dad's house for some Super Bowl BBQing and partying and wine drinking and cheese eating and just yes. Although I could care less about the game and the outcome, I loved hanging with Matt and our friends and all of the ridiculous things that were said were just all sorts of entertaining. Basically a wonderous way to end the weekend.
Oh also, remember that review blog I have? I actually posted something to it. A fabulous book that you should all read, so check it out.
And how was your weekend? Any wild animals or Superbowl mania?
