Most of my weekend focused on the Unborn. Friday, after realizing that the grocery shopping plans with Mike had been thrown into chaos, I met the Very Special HouseGuest, Nida, and her friend, Nami, for lunch. We went to a Japanese restaurant in Dupont Circle, Sakana. And then we went out for coffee.
Once Mike finished work, I met him at the Giant near his house, and we shopped and shopped and shopped. Brunch for 30 people is *a lot* of groceries. We finished around 730 (earlier than I thought! Yay!). I went home. Nida and I ordered pizza and had wine. Tomokito stopped by on her way home from work. And SCGB came down. It was like a pre-party or something.
I had the worst night of sleep EVER. At one point, I woke up after dreaming "All the food is STARCH! We need a salad!"
Saturday morning, Nida and I metro'ed to Mike's house. When we arrived, he had already done most of the cooking (hurrah!). So we did some minor things and helped organize, while he cleaned.
Here's the menu:
-Chilled Berry Soup (which was nice b/c it was unusually warm on Saturday)
-Spinach Quiche (one with bacon, one without)
-Hash Brown Casserole
-Lots and lots and lots of mimosas!
The only "activity" we had was an idea I stole from BOSSY. I placed a box, some paper, and markers on a table so people could write messages to the baby (and her parents).
Tomoko opened presents. We ate the gorgeous (and delicious!) cake, which Mike made and decorated. He's really good, isn't he? [You may remember that he has made my birthday cake the past two years and also the Mummy Cake from this year's BYOP Carving Party]. The last of the guests left around 4. I was home at 5ish, completely exhausted.

Later that evening, Kristi and the German came down and we watched DVDs until midnight.
Sunday, I didn't leave the house. So tired. I was supposed to meet a friend, but I cancelled. The only think I accomplished was this:
Which used to be this:
Yeah, I frogged the Never-Ending Cardigan of Doom. When I tried it on, it fit ... but it was a little snug. And I want something baggier. So I'm going to reknit it a size larger.
And that was my weekend. *w00t!*
Today is the final pottery class. Wah. The studio will be open for a few more weeks for students to finish up projects. *sigh*
Have a great day! *smooches*
