Friday night, I went to an art opening at the Blanton Museum. It was of 50's cool and had a lot of neat exhibits, like the original Barbie doll, Dobie Gillis playing on tv, and great jazz music. And since I got to dress up (a little bit,) it was an even bigger treat!
Saturday, my sister-in-law came into town with my niece and nephew. We started the day at the Farmer's Market, which is so much fun for a foodie like me! The produce, the products, the atmosphere! For lunch, we headed over to Casa de Luz, which is my favorite restaurant because everything is organic. (It also happens to be vegan and macrobiotic, but those aren't as big a deal to me.) I feel great eating here, and the food is always particularly tasty since it's made with super fresh ingredients. After lunch, and playing on the playground for a while, we went to Nature's Treasures, which is a store that sells stones and jewelry. I get into the meaning behind certain stones so it's always a lot of fun seeing what I'm drawn to and what its meaning is. Afterwards, we headed back to my casa and cooked dinner and played with the kids. Later, I made some homemade popcorn that we ate on the couch.
It was a GREAT weekend!
