Weekend Recap

post-weekendrecap

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I didn’t do too much but wanted to recap what I did do. On Saturday, my mom and I had a mani/pedi appointment. I got a rose color which is what I was wanting. I wanted something neutral this time around. I got a slightly darker color on my toes. After that, I went to AT&T to have them replace my cover of my phone then I headed over to Michael’s. I got a cute holder for my planner that holds washi tape. After that, we were hungry and we were craving Thai. We wanted to go to our favorite place in Fremont called Sala Thai but they were closed so we ended up at Banh Thai. It was good, but not as good as Sala Thai.

Sunday, I just relaxed most of the day. I had a photoshoot appointment with Taylor at Morcom Rose Garden. The place was so beautiful. I can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out. Stay tuned for that!

That was pretty much my weekend. What did you all do for your weekend?

Remembering Dad

post-rememberingdad
This past weekend, my mom and I headed down to Santa Cruz harbor and met up with my Grandmama, Uncle, Aunt, and 2 cousins to celebrate my dad’s life. On April 23, it had been one year since he passed and we decided to spend the weekend with family. We started off at The Crow’s Nest and had lunch. Afterwards, we took some pictures at the harbor and then headed back to my Aunt’s.

We got back to her house and played dominoes (one of my dad’s favorite games). We played a full round and by the time we were done, it was time for dinner. My aunt was making a chicken dish in her crock pot that turned out delicious. After that, my mom and I headed back home. It was nice seeing everyone and remembering the good times. It was also nice to see my Grandmama because she has been having some health problems so it was just nice to catch up with everyone.

When my mom and I got home, I was hit with the stomach flu. At my work we had been sending a few children home with it on Friday so I wasn’t surprised I got it. I was up all night. I will spare you the details but let’s just say I had every symptom that is associated with the stomach flu. I was out of commission all day Sunday as well and called in sick Monday. I’m finally feeling better and eating real foods again.
