It's Monday, so that means a recap of the weekend and a link up with Ameliorer la Vie.
Let's start with Friday night, shall we?
The company I work for recently acquired a whole new venue space for events. This is huge (and I'm not just talking about the size of the space because it really is huge)! One small step for the catering business, one HUGE step for me! I mean experience wise--so cool! So recently there have been some pretty fab events that I've gotten to attend to "observe" and "take pictures" all while basking in the fabulousness of a grand event.
This past Friday was Children's Hospital's Sugar Plum Ball. Yes, that's right. A ball! Like Cinderella. Kinda. Anyways, despite the rain it was a great night with a great turn out. It turns out a ball for a hospital is not complete without new medical technology being showcased (that's a new one), as well as, alcohol and countless hors d'oeuvres.

|Holy passed hors d'oeuvres!|
If you follow me on Instagram or read this post or this post, you'll know that I'm on a super health kick right now. Watching food documentaries like Food Inc., Supersize Me, and many others will do that to you. After about half of a week in of eating mostly clean and healthy and I'm doing pretty good. I still crave chocolate and cheeseburgers, but I want to be a skinnyminny this summer for boat season. So keeping that in mind, I headed out late Saturday morning in search of a juice. Not just any juice. The kind that looks green and scary and is a combination of all fruits and vegetables. No added sugars or chemicals.
I ended up at Fare: Food Apothecary on Magazine St.
It had spinach, orange, pineapple, and apple in it and for a pure juice, it really wasn't that bad. I did not, however, finish it all. I have this thing with weird textures and it had a LOT of pulp. Still, I'm proud of myself for trying it--just don't count on me signing up for the next 30 day juice cleanse!
Bridal Show day! At a country club no less.
This might be one of my favorite things about my job--even if it was on a weekend. I like talking with other professionals and potential clients, building the network, and getting free samples (Note: I did NOT have any of those delicious looking petit fours in the left of the picture. I SO wanted to though--read Saturday about health kick)
Pretty big, event packed weekend leading up to an even busier week I'm sure. Wish me luck, because I said so!
