Hello there!  How's everyone doing this morning?  I must say, it wasn't easy to get out of my warm, cozy bed this morning.  However, I'm still having a productive morning. Yesterday was way too busy to post, so I am going to consider Monday as part of my weekend recap, too.  Just a heads up: it is mainly photos!  Enjoy!

photo 1 (2)Friday night started out with an impromptu date.  We went and had sushi (and sake), where I ordered this gorgeous plate of peppered ahi sashimi.  It was amazing!  As you can see it also had a cucumber, jalapeno and avocado salad.  Mmm!  After dinner, we met up with some friends for a drink.  It was a fun, mellow evening!

photo 1I was really in the mood for a Caeser salad and more avocado on Sunday afternoon.  Such a random craving!  Anyway, I didn't have any Caeser dressing, so I decided to make my own.  I made about half a pint to have later on too.  It was so easy!

em's gradFinally, my favorite photo!  Last night my best gal Emma graduated from nursing school, and had her pinning ceremony.  I am so, so, SO proud of her!  I remember when she started school for her AA with the intention to get into nursing school.  Then, once she got into nursing school (no surprise), it was a journey for her, and I'm so happy that I got to be there to support her along the way.  Of course yesterday was very special for her and her family, but it was super special for me too, and I'm so glad I got to be there to cheer her on (I totally cried like a blubbering baby, too).  Way to go, Em!  I love you!

Long post, but I hope you enjoyed it!  Have a great day!
