My Weekend

My weekend was low key, just as I'd hoped. Friday night, my boyfriend and I had date night out at Serious Pie renown for it's inventive, delicious pizza! I went for the truffle cheese + chantrelle mushroom (heavenly), and he had the housemade salumi and spices. With drinks, 2 cannoli and 1 gift card later, we ended up paying less than $15 out of pocket - sweet!

Saturday I cleaned my house from top to bottom while watching a childhood fave movie - Troop Beverly Hills, tell me you've heard of it! Beverly Hills, what a thrill! Beverly Hills what a thrill! Ah it brought me back to sleepovers of years past.
After some of my teacher friends came over, and we got ready together for the annual benefit auction for our school. One 6-course meal and hours of mingling later, I was exhausted.

On Sunday I joined a new gym, had coffee with a friend, and enjoyed myself at a Superbowl party before jetting over to my parents for my little sister's goodbye party - she leaves for Sydney, Australia for the semester on Tuesday! So excited for her! All in all - an eventful but low key weekend.

Phyllis Nefler is my hero. That movie is awesome. And I think it is so funny that little Hannah Nefler grew up to bet the lead singer of my favorite band - Rilo Kiley!

Ohmygosh, I must pay a visit to Serious Pie (if I ever get the chance).
Thank you so much for visiting my blog!! :)
Looks like we have much of the same interests (ie: food and travel...and good company, of course :). I'll definitely be checking back in!
How exciting that you're going to Mexico - be sure to eat lots of tacos and tortas and ceviche and lobsters!! :)

OH. MY. GOSH. Truffle cheese and chantrelle mushroom pizza?! that sounds insanely delicious! And Troop Beverly Hills? That was so one of my all time favorite childhood movies :) Too funny! "Beverly Hills, what a thrill!"

Serious Pie is SOOOOOOOOOOO good. I must return. I could eat pizza every day of my life.

Troop Beverly Hills totally brings me back to my childhood! And like Paige said in the second comment, YAY JENNY LEWIS! It's so funny to watch that movie now after I've seen her perform several times with Rilo Kiley and on her own. So fun :-)
