weekend recap

April 25, 2011

Hello Everyone! This week will take us out of the world of fashion and back to the world I usually reside in: the one filled with episodes of Gilmore Girls and pictures of smores and a bounty of life anecdotes. And more often than not, that world is named Pittsford.

  • As if I needed another reason to love Pittsford…there is now a LULULEMON showroom in Pittsford! AND they offer free yoga classes every Saturday morning. Yes! It’s gospel truth! Check it out next Saturday!
  • Because I never got the “don’t talk to strangers” memo, I started chatting with the woman next to me at yoga. We were commiserating about the trials and tribulations of living in Siberia when she remarked she was thinking about moving to Savannah, Georgia. I’m sure normal people would be able to comment on the historic buildings or the beautiful weather or the refined society in Savannah. But the first thing that came to my mind and, consequently, flew out of my mouth, was “Oh my word, you could go to Paula Deen’s restaurant!!!” She then made the mistake of saying that she actually had been to Ms. Deen’s establishment, which made me completely loose the cool I was never in possession of. That resulted in: “OH MY GOSH ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Was it amazing? Did it change your life? Did you gain 5 lbs before you left?” I sincerely think I scared her. She timidly responded that no, Paula Deen’s lunch buffet did not change her life. Then she called me a big freak and moved her mat to a less enthusiastic section of the studio. She was actually too nice to do that, but the poor soul probably wished she could.
  • The ‘rents were in town for Eater! We laughed a lot. We ate a lot. And we dyed a lot of eggs.

  • Just a public service announcement for all the Rico Suave’s out there – it’s not a great idea to ask a girl out for drinks when a) she’s out to dinner with her parents, b) you’ve just mistakenly referred to her parents as her grandparents, c) you are the waiter, and d) that girl is me. Sorry. I’m one tough customer.
  • Easter is one of my favorite days of the year. Without fail, Easter makes me emotional. I get overwhelmed by the enormity of what Jesus did to redeem us, of how tangible his love is, of how much hope is readily available through his resurrection. This year was no different. I was a human faucet of emotions. But for good reason! In addition to the spiritual significance, I was so grateful to be with my happy and healthy dad after a time of uncertainty earlier this year. So thankful for my mom, who never fails to make life more fun. So blessed by friends near and far. So in awe of this past year replete with an abundance of beautiful things. It was such a wonderful day!

: monday motivation :

Easter may have been yesterday, but the hope of the holiday is for everyday:

 6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 9 And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. 10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

Romans 5: 6 – 11

Embrace it, friends! And have a great Monday!

    We went to Paula Dean’s restaurant a couple of times when we lived in Savannah. It is such a tourist trap – the place is always packed out and it really isn’t very good. It is really overpriced and the food reminds me slightly of cafeteria food…tables are all crammed in real close together too. There are def. much tastier places in Savannah to eat.
