11.11.13: weekend recap

Hey guys! I’m pooped today after a busy weekend. We had a friend in town and I had my Junior League of Miami event, so the weekend was pretty jam packed with things to do. I’m happy I got to fit in a quick run on Saturday morning because the rest of the weekend was a wash in terms of exercise.

Miami Magic, a fundraising event benefitting the Junior League of Miami, was a 1950’s-themed night with casino tables, raffle items, a photo booth, and a caricature artist. It was a success, I think there were at least 250 people there!

Sad confession–I had to black and white this photo due to the huge discrepancy in our skin tones. He rocks the sexy tan skin and I looked a bit like a ghost next to him. Thank goodness for filters.

I had a full day of clients on Sunday, so it was pretty incredible to come home to the boys doing some backyard grilling for a late lunch. Talk about service! They used the lemongrass and tarragon that came in our CSA box this week (more on that later) and the chicken had such good flavor.

I basically imitated him on the couch.

How was everyone’s weekend??
