Weekend Review

I had a fun weekend spent with friends that I don't always get to see as often as I want. It reminded me what great friends I have!!!!!!!!

Friday night Mr. Pickle and I ran a few errands and spent the rest of the evening at home. I love relaxing Friday nights!!

Saturday morning my sister and I headed to Modesto for our friend Michelle's baby shower. I actually know Michelle from sorority where she became my Big Sis. We have been close ever since...I was in her wedding and she was also in my wedding. She actually knew Mr. Pickle back in the Junior High days since they grew up in Modesto together.

While driving to Modesto, we continued passing pretty cherry blossom orchards. We kept commenting on how pretty they were and finally we decided we had to pull of and have a photo opp. My sister is a professional photographer so she had her good camera on hand and was able to snap a few shots!!

Then of course I had to get some of her!

While getting back in the car we noticed we got our cute shoes all muddy. No good at all. Since we didn't want to show up to the baby shower tracking mud in with us, we had to stop at a gas station to clean off our shoes. Of course this lead to another photo opp. :) I think the gas station cashier thought we were pretty weird.

We finally made it to the baby shower. The house was decorated so cute and the momma to be was looking fabulous!! I mean seriously, I look more pregnant than she does. Haha.

The next few pics from the shower were taken by my sister.

These lovely ladies are all Alpha Chi's. I love that I have these ladies in my life!!

Michelle isn't finding out the sex of the baby. Of course I am hoping for a cute little girl so I can dress her up in pink!! The cake was delicious and looked very fitting for not knowing the sex of the baby.

While opening presents, Michelle was presented with a gift for her husband from a fellow party goer's husband. It was a Daddy Tool Belt equipped with all the necessities for changing a diaper. When Greg got home, we had him try on the tool belt (he was such a good sport). Here he is modeling the tool belt and wearing the safety glasses, mask and showing off the tongs.

After the shower we hung out for a little bit and then headed to dinner where my mother-in-law and father-in-law joined us. No pic :( Good times!

Sunday morning was spent sleeping in and being lazy until we had to get up to meet these lovely ladies for lunch.

Mr. Pickle used to work with Ella (on the end on the right). They used to go to this Korean BBQ restaurant in Oakland all the time and fell in love with their Bibimbop. The rest of us had never visited the restaurant but were invited to try the best Korean BBQ around. Ella and crew drove all the way from Elk Grove (like an hour and a half) to have lunch with us here!!

See how happy they are when they finally got and devoured their food!! They were in Bibimbop heaven!

Afterwards we went to Tucker's in Alameda for some yummy ice cream!

Gotta love their mantra - Life Is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First
Naturally all this eating made us sleepy so we said farewell to the ladies and headed home to relax for the remainder of the day (and do Sunday chores). We each had a small bowl of cereal for dinner. Haha.
I made the mistake of starting The September Issue aka "Real Devil Wears Prada" while I was in bed trying to go to sleep. I ended up watching the whole movie. I liked it, I thought it was very interesting seeing the inner workings of Vogue. I woke up a little on the tired side this morning.
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
