I'd been dying to see Ballet 422, a documentary about Justin Peck's work for New York City Ballet, so we tried a new-to-us Indian restaurant downtown and dashed over to Embarcadero Center Cinema for the film. I so often forget how much is available to us in San Francisco–food, culture, nature–and Friday night reminded me to soak as much of it in as possible!

John will be in Dallas for the next few weeks, so we wanted to take advantage of our last day with each other and the gorgeous weather on Saturday, and indulged in breakfast al fresco at Seabreeze Café. After chipotle eggs Benedict with avocado, we ran a few errands before heading home to curl up next to each other–and our current projects! When you're really excited about what you're working on, you never seem to want to stop doing it. We took a breaks for a few episodes of Fresh Off the Boat and a late lunch before getting back to work until we suddenly found ourselves turning on the living room lamps. Then we sprang into action, slow-roasting veggies and poaching eggs for a simple salad supper (which I may have enjoyed with a glass of red wine). Then we crawled into bed with Gone Girl for a thrilling end to the evening.

We were up early the next morning, and after a simple breakfast (toast with soft scrambled eggs–Hollow doesn't open until 9am!) we were off to the airport. I kissed John goodbye, then headed home to cross a few things off my to-do list before dashing downtown for a dress rehearsal for the San Francisco Ballet. A friend of mine arranged the music for one of the pieces in Program 3, and got me in to see the rehearsal, which was fantastic. And who should I spot in the very small audience but Justin Peck, the star of Friday night's documentary! Starving and a little star-struck, I drove back home to whip up a salad full of roasted corn and avocado before settling in with a good book and the Oscars for the rest of the evening.

Tell me, what were you up to this weekend? Did you watch the Oscars, cozied up with a glass of bubbly, and dream of a beachy getaway with a mug of cocoa to keep you warm? I want to hear all about it!

    1. Yeah, it's going to be a bit rough–he's not scheduled to be back until the first week in April! But on the other hand, I can watch all the West Wing reruns I want. :)
