Weekend Review

Another successful weekend, another Monday come too soon!! I seriously think three day weekends should be made mandatory for our well being. Between, running errands, visiting with family and friends, working side jobs, doing chores, and having a life over the weekend, I find myself longing for just "one more day" to be able to rest and relax before facing another week.

I got off work a little early on Friday which is always nice. I exercised for a bit and then headed to the mall to look around while I waited for Mr. Pickle to get off of work. Once we met up, we met up some friends at Benihana for dinner.

It is fun to watch them make the food right there in front of you. Our guy made a heart out of our yummy fried rice!

Saturday morning I woke up too early (why can't I sleep in on the weekends anymore?) and took one of my dogs for a walk/jog to get some exercise while enjoying the wonderful weather. When I got back home I got ready and headed to my grandpa's for the afternoon. We went out to lunch and went to visit the cemetery where my grandma and dad are buried. Isn't the view beautiful? If you look close enough you can see the Golden Gate Bridge in the background! It is so peaceful and pretty there. My grandpa goes to visit my grandma (and my dad since they are right next to each other) every week.

After spending the afternoon with my grandpa me and some ladies headed to Sonoma for a party at one of the wineries we are members at. We hit major traffic leaving San Francisco, but I got a better picture of the Golden Gate Bridge!

It was perfect weather and clear enough to see the whole bay so we decided to stop and get a picture with San Francisco in the back ground.

Once we got to Ledson, we were ready to do some major wine drinking!!
And of course we had to do the traditional bath tub shot. (Story has it that the house was built for the family to live in, but ALWAYS got visitors because it was mistaken as a winery so they made it into a winery....hence the bathtub at a winery.) We take a bath tub shot every time we are there!!

Group shot behind one of the bars set up for the evening!
The party ended sooner than we were expecting so we decided to head back to San Francisco and hit up one of our favorite white trash bars, Butter.

Typically we would have dressed appropriately for the occasion (ie. white trash attire-as seen here for Mr. Pickle's birthday) but we didn't have a change of clothes with us :(

We still drank 40's out of paper bag, tall cans of Bud Light and Jello shots and of course broke out in the robot at some point.

I actually slept in on Sunday (I guess that's what happens when you don't get to bed until 3:30 am). Mr. Pickle and I went to breakfast and then ran some errands and then I met up with my sister to help her with a family photo shoot...ummm hello adorable family with three boys (twins and an older brother). I will have to post one of the pics my sister took because they were adorable! Once we were done we went to my house where the boys were finishing up dinner. They entered another BBQ contest and are working on perfecting their ribs and chicken. It was delicious, as always! Spent the rest of the night finishing laundry and going to bed early.

How was your weekend?

I have not been to a Benihana in YEARS!!! We used to go to one in Key West when we visited my grandparents. I dont even think they exist where I live :((
Sounds like a super fun weekend!
