My sister's been in town for work, so on Thursday, I joined her (and her company) at a cocktail party at Foreign Cinema. Mailchimp knows how to throw down--we were in a gallery with an open bar and attentive servers refilling glasses--my kinda party! Plus, I met the most darling host. He was probably in his 70's, wearing a very formal suit and tie, and told me that he drives from Walnut Creek (an hour away) on Thursday and Friday evenings to host. I helped him shell beans for a while, which took me right back to my childhood on my mama's front porch.
In any case, I came home from work on Friday exhausted after a looooooong week, so I didn't really do anything but sit around bleary-eyed watching tv with Matt. But on Saturday, with sister in tow, we headed over to the Freitags' for a belated birthday celebration for Matt. Milo and Jude were very excited to present him with his cake:
JJ cooked an incredible dinner on the grill, and we sat outside watching the sun set over Mount Tam--one of the best ways to spend a Saturday evening, if you ask me. It's so nice to have so many people you love in one place. ♥ ♥
See what I mean?
Unfortunately, Kate and I did not do a good job of taking pictures together, and I came up short with only this super blurry, grainy picture of the two of us. Good thing I'll be home in Georgia in August so we can remedy that!
Real photographers, avert your eyes!
Matt and I spent Sunday with Jasper: grilling out, being lazy, jewerly-making. But after we returned him to his mama's house, we had a big event to prepare for. I'm talkin' bout the BACHELORETTE FINALE, ladies & gentleman. Can we say major upset?!?! Matt and I went to our friends' Diana and Adam's house for the most-dramatic-(non)-rose-ceremony-in-Bachelor-history, where we shared amazing Jewish-Mediterranean food, lots of laughs, and collective shock over Emily's final choice.
I mean, whaaaaaaaat? Who would've thought? Matt live tweeted the whole event, which was pretty hilarious if I do say so myself.
What was everyone else up to this weekend? Tell me tell me tell me!
