My Weekend

December 20, 2010

Is there really another way to ever start a post?

This weekend, Sascha (the Boyfriend) and I, went to his cousin’s house for a champagne brunch feast. I was good though, I stayed sober as the Designated Driver. šŸ™‚

Among the feast items were:

Pancakes, scrambled eggs, (bacon fat) fried eggs, fresh fruit, thinly sliced prosciutto, ham, and smoked salmon, bagels and toast, cream cheese, oven roasted potatoes, and bacon. Oh, and obviously, champagne and juices.

Boyfriend's plate #1

My plate šŸ™‚

There was so much food. And it was so good.

After stuffing ourselves silly, we headed home to set up the Christmas tree, and decorations, with Mama Samaan (Boyfriend’s mom). And play with my camera. šŸ˜‰

We also went out to dinner at a very very fancy restaurant. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve dressed up for an event… *sigh* I miss college.

Oh, and I also got my hair dyed. Soooooooo dark. šŸ™‚

I also did a TON of unbaking. But these are for another post…

Speaking of cookies… have you checked out the Twelve Days of Holiday Eats??? So many great recipes!

So far, we have awesome recipes from the following bloggers:

You look great together! Looking forward to more on the unbaking – see some chia-goji action there…

Wow your hair is dark now! But after today, light is returning, so you’ll contrast more and more.

I love your hair! You need to do a closer picture so we can see better šŸ™‚

That food looks yummy. My plate would have been 1/3 of those scrumptious-looking potatoes, 1/3 smoked salmon (yeah, I’m greedy like that), and 1/3 fruit.

I can’t do champagne, which sucks because I look like a lush drinking wine at brunches. Not that it stops me, but why is champagne acceptable, but not wine?

Love the hair, hottie.

What a lovely spread of food! Those eggs look so good! And, Lori, you look really nice! What a change for the hair, but I think it suites you well. Sasha is a very lucky man. šŸ™‚

Everything looks great!! You and the man look gorgeous together by the way. And the hair is perfect for the cold weather. I always paint my toes black in the winter. It doesnt seem acceptable in the summer or spring lol
