You’ve already heard about our delicious dinner at Erin’s restaurant… but I thought you might like to see a few more pictures from our childless weekend.
After I taught Zumba Thursday night, we met for a late dinner at The Red Bowl. I couldn’t decide what to get, but ended up with sushi and Pad Thai Noodles…
On Saturday, I got up early to watch the Today Show. My sister and her husband and some of their friends were in New York and they were going to attempt to get on TV outside NBC. They were successful! My sister’s friend Ellen was even selected to ask Hoda and kelly Pickler (guest host standing in for Kathy Lee) a question!
Ellen is in the front on the left (green and blue stripes) and you can see half of my sister Meredith—in black and white stripes. After the Today show aired on Friday, Today posted this pic via Instagram! So fun!
(By the way, if you are on Instagram, you can follow me-- “couchpotatoliz” to see what I am up to each day! Many of the pics you see in this post are Instagram pics.)
The weather was beautiful, so we enjoyed shopping at some local outdoor spots. We also stopped by and traded in Ryan’s Blackberry for an iPhone. It’s so funny how… just a few years ago… Blackberries were a very “cutting-edge” technology. And now… not so much. The hubby is having fun learning how to use it and find apps that he likes.
On Saturday morning, I headed to Charlotte for a quick workshop on Cueing and Breakdown of Zumba moves. Thios is one of the most challenging parts of being a Zumba instructor. You have to be able to not only KNOW the routines backwards and forwards, but you also need to be able to cue every move ahead of time, and break down the moves so that anyone can follow them. Sound hard? Well, it is. Our company works hard to try and make sure all our instructors are able to do these things really well.
After the workshop, Ryan came to meet me and we grabbed lunch at Lebowski’s.
and a Jerk-Style burger.
We decided to keep it low-key for dinner. We ended up at another Asian Bistro, Liu Liu’s. We couldn’t decide what we felt like, so we had appetizers for dinner:
lettuce wraps, calamari, California roll, and a Crunchy Tuna Roll.
And a cocktail. :) Cosmopolitan.
So… we weren’t productive at all on our long weekend, but as you can see, we ATE really well and we enjoyed the time together.
