Weekend Fun …

This past weekend was a great mix of down time, fun with friends and celebration of significant milestones.  On Friday I caught the new Tom Cruise movie, Oblivion and I’m happy to say it was much better than I had originally expected. Saturday marked a day of milestones for friends and family, as well as a chance for me to see a great live band. Sunday was a day of relaxation and good food.  I went to brunch with friends at Reid’s Fine Foods to mark their first Sunday brunch (so tasty). I was also able to catch up on one of my favorite shows, Scandal, start reading a new book and watched Django Unchained with my dog, Smitty.

Here are some highlights from my weekend according to my iPhone.

I made an amazing egg white veggie omelet with fresh brewed coffee on Saturday. Tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and a sprinkle of cheddar made this bad boy epic.


The amazing Dion had a launch party for her website, Life During the Commercial Break,  at Ten Park Lanes.  The party was full of hair teasing demonstrations (the above photo), the proper way to apply false lashes and moonshine drinks.


Saturday marked the 39th wedding anniversary of my parents. Their love inspires and amazes me every day.

I enjoyed Django Unchained, but Smitty fell asleep.  Guess he’s not a Tarantino fan?

On Saturday, I went to see Sons of Bill at the Visulite. They are a great band from the amazing state of Virginia, but I am biased. This is one of my favorite songs from the band and I wanted to share since we could all use some good music on a Monday.
