What an odd compilation of activities!
It doesn't happen often, but every now and then I'll have a jam-packed weekend. And, thanks to my parents who came over to watch the boys, The Mister and I were able to go on not one, but two dates! Here's what I was up to this past weekend--
 SEWING - I took a sewing class... Can you believe it?
Now, that I know how to thread a machine... I'm armed and dangerous!
 MICHAEL JACKSON - We had a date night-- Yippee!
First we ate yummy Persian food at our favorite kabab place in the Valley...
Koobideh, roasted tomatoes & peppers, and saffron rice. So good!
Then enjoyed Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson experience...
 BANANA BREAD - I made yummy Banana Sour Cream muffins for Smarty Pant's basketball team and bread for us.
light and moist with a cinnamon-sugar crunch. Yum! here's the recipe
 FALCONS - We took a drive to the Terranea resort in Palos Verdes and enjoyed beautiful scenery, good food, great company and balmy 75 degree weather. Aaah!
I used to live in the area and had no idea that it is now a vacation destination... crazy!
We saw a falconry show too!
According to the handler, they can fly up to 250 MPH... I believe it!
Hanging out with a hood.
Eating some yummy pigeon treats.
They are used to keep seagulls from over-populating the area... And sure enough, when he was in the air, all of the birds disappeared. Except the pelicans.
So it was a busy, busy weekend, and although I was thoroughly exhausted and am now buried in laundry and dirty dishes... It was worth it!
