|My Dad and I at Benihanas
This weekend update is brief. Great for me because it means my weekend was relatively uneventful (and I like that sometimes) but not so good for blogging purposes. I'll stick to my guns and update you none the less. Despite large amounts of down time I was able to have a bit of a social life, which is exciting. Ever since we got married our social life has really taken a hit, so getting together with friends and family is always a welcomed event.
On Saturday we got together with my dad at Benihanas. It was my first time at that particular franchise, and I have to say I was quite impressed. So many hibachi places overload their grill with soy sauce. So much so that you can't taste the flavor of the food, just salt. Benihanas does not adulterate their food in this way. It was great to hang out and catch up with my dad. He's a motivational speaker and spends a good bit of time on the road. He and my step-mom are headed to Hawaii this week for a month-long vacation! I'm so excited for them but will miss getting together. No doubts about that.
Note: The old couple in the photo and their family not pictured are from China. The grandparents now live in Toronto and the kids in Hong Kong. It was so much fun to hang out with them and welcome them to the tourist capital of the world! Their little girl was going to Disney World for the first time ever after the meal!
|Nate setting up the hookah
On Saturday night, our buddy Nate came over for a little dinner, a little discussion, and a little hookah. Nate shares our affinity for all things Middle Eastern. We really enjoy talking about current events (he had just gotten back from a protest and fundraiser for Libya) and is a fellow believer that enjoys discussing theology and philosophy. Pretty much he's an awesome guest to have over. Both he and John smoke hookah, so we all headed outside for a lovely evening on the patio passing the hose around. I don't smoke hookah much, I blog...
Sunday we went to church and I cooked. I cooked my little heart out. I have tons of ammunition for the week, so get ready for some awesome recipes! Sunday is our rest day, and we did a lot of resting. And cooking, did I mention that? ;-)
What did you do this weekend? And, if you're married, did you find that your social activities decreased after you tied the knot?
