My Weekend in Review

So this past weekend was fabulous and very much needed.  For a short week, it sure did seem to grag on and on (and on).  Friday night Joel and I had a double date night with a friend of mine here at work at the new(ish) bistro movie theater that opened here.  The theater itself was great, with individual recliners and an attached tray for food/drinks/whatevs and a push button for table service.  They had an array of snacks and drinks, and because it was a "21 & over" kind of thing, those drinks could be of the alcohol persuasion.  The grown up idea of a movie was great, and we saw Argo, which was equally fantastic.  Anyone who knows me knows that I love history type stuff, and even though I knew what happened at the end, the movie still had me on the edge of my seat.  The food was pretty well as the service.  The hubster ordered an appetizer and a flatbread pizza, and he never got his pizza.  Which he should be semi-thankful for because it was less than spectacular.

We left the theater, which coincidentally is kind of inside of a sports bar, and it was in the seventh inning of the Cardinals playoff game.  Now anyone who knows me knows that football is my thang, but baseball is more of a second thought for me.  But, being a new STL transport, I was excited to watch the Cardinals in action.  And what a game!  The biggest comeback in playoff history.  Yay for timely coincidences.  I am joinng in my fellow St. Louisans and hoping for a 12th World Series championship in 2012.

Saturday was an interesting day.  I went to a ladies only kind of gym place downtown, and took a strength training class called "Pole, Sweat, and Tears."  It's a class that teaches you to use various kinds of equipment in order to strengthen your upper and lower body, and of course your core.  One of the things we used was a, well, umm...pole.  Nothing too dramatic and nothing that would embarrass my momma, but it was one hell of a workout.  My thighs are still burning today.  I am working on definitely making that a part of my routine, now that I am starting to get back in one.

The blurry and embarrassing evidence.
After that it was a delicious meal out for a good cause.  And before you ask, yes, I got the petite burger and a salad, versus those delicious never ending steak fries.  Rather than explain the event, I'll show you the flier.

Sunday was a day filled with the usual homework, lesson plans, and other school related stuff, as well as a not usual Sunday happening.  The Dolphins won a game!  Although it was bittersweet win because the beat the Rams, it made the Dolphins .500, and I honestly can't remember the last time that happened (2008 maybe?).  Made Monday morning seem more bearable already!

That class sounds like so much fun! I would love to do something like that. :)
