Weekend Review

I would be lying if I said I had a relaxing weekend. Don't get me wrong... it was a good weekend but very busy. My weekends now run Thursday, Friday and Saturdays. Those are prime days for things going on around town. I'm actually starting to make friends in Sacramento and I was included in a few activities this weekend. That made me pretty excited! The weather was great all weekend and I started it off with a pretty sunset leaving work...
On Thursday, we hit up the Dive Bar again. I mean who wouldn't want to listen to dueling pianos and see mermaids swimming around? It's fun! 
When I mentioned Dive Bar last week a lot of people asked if the mermaids are in there the whole night? To answer that question, no they are not. They disappear every now and then but reappear. I don't know where they go or what they do. I'm sure they go up for air and to get out of the water for awhile. 

On Friday, I furniture shopped all day with my old roommate Ellie who lives in town. She was successful but I couldn't find anything except some glass, vintage grapes. I did end up buying a bed from her because she needed to make room in her house for her boyfriend to move in. It was a fun day together and it felt like old times, running around Huntsville together. That evening, I went to a dinner party. I was responsible for bringing a dessert and since one of the host is allergic to cocoa and chocolate, I scored a lemon meringue pie. 
 
On Saturday, I spent the morning moving in the new bed that I had acquired from Ellie. Then I went about doing all those tasks that you really don't want to do and put off till you can't put off any longer. I also took the time to make the famous mac and cheese (yes I know... I made it last week as well) along with pork chops. 
Once I ate, all I wanted to do was stay home but I got roped into a going away party for a really nice guy at work. So I hit Chevy's On the River and since I've usually never been to half these places before it was a new experience! I feel like I'm completing one of my goals that I made for myself this year that was to get out there and do more things!

I am still so intrigued by Dive Bar. Maybe I need to come visit you so you can take me!

That's so great that your old roomate lives there, and that you're starting to make friends. New cities are so lonely before you make friends.

It does sound like a busy weekend! But a good one! It's so hard to meet people in a new place, but it sounds like you're doing a great job ;)

I love lemon meringue pie. I just always think that the meringue looks so pretty.
