Weekend Review

Hello blog friends ~

How was your weekend? Mine was filled with friends, fun, and a good dose of work. Friday night we dined in honor of a good friend's birthday at L'Artichaut, a delicious vegetarian restaurant. Not only did they create tasty dishes, but they were beautiful, too! 

Saturday was dedicated to grading papers -- that would be the second Saturday in a row of grading papers. I wish I could report on something more fun and interesting, but we are living in a season of work these days! 

Saturday evening was dedicated to leisure, as MBA and I went to the theater to see the Lark Rise to Candleford. The theatrical production was okay -- overall it's quite disjointed, but I've heard the production on BBC is actually really fantastic. However,  we have some pretty awesome, old theaters here in Edinburgh. They're full of old world charm, and King's Theater definitely checks those boxes! Here's the picture I captured on my phone: 

Aren't the old box seats so great?

If you really want to hear about some good theater, you should go check out my sister Hilary's blog. She's working in NYC doing marketing for a Broadway producer and as a show promoter and saw no less than three shows this past week. Lucky girl!

Yesterday was filled with the usual: church, cooking, errands, a stop by Real Foods, exercising, reading, and a random viewing of Ayn Rand's Fountainhead.  MBA had read Fountainhead -- a book about objective philosophy and architecture -- but the story was a new one for me. The film itself was made in the 40's, so you can imagine its simplicity. Despite having been a philosophy student in university, I may or may not have fallen asleep during the movie. Oops!
