And here’s Part II of a very happy weekend!
I hadn’t been to Eastern Standard since bunch after the run I did with TMIRCE, so I was excited to have dinner there.
I had the grilled salmon, which came with potatoes, fennel, and a Dijon-bacon dressing. It was awesome.
I also had a couple bites of Mal’s cheesy potatoes—also delicious.
After dinner, the four of headed to the House of Blues to see Who’s Bad, a Michael Jackson tribute band. After blogging about Madonna and my Life’s To Do List, Meghan told me that Who’s Bad was coming to Boston in a few weeks, and I immediately bought tickets.
At the concert, I ordered a seltzer with a splash of pineapple. Yay, mocktails!
Check out the photo-bomber behind Nick! LOL!
Who’s Band was absolutely amazing! The lead singer looked, danced, and sang almost exactly like the real Michael Jackson.
And it was quite a performance with a full band, lights, dancers, and multiple costume changes.
They played a ton of my favorites (Thriller was a highlight – loved seeing the dance), so I had a blast singing along and dancing like a freak.
It’s sad I won’t ever get to see the real Michael Jackson in concert, but this show was definitely a great substitute. I’d totally see Who’s Bad again too. It was such a fun time!
On Sunday morning, Mal and I woke up early to drive out to our hometown to attend a special memorial Mass for my grandfather. It was also my grandfather’s birthday yesterday, so my grandmother hosted a brunch at her house after. I brought some Paleo Morning Glory Muffins to contribute, and they were a huge hit—all of them got eaten and a bunch of people asked for the recipe!
Brunch eats: spinach quiche, potatoes, fresh fruit, Paleo Morning Glory Muffin, and apple cider.
After brunch, Mal and I hung out with my mom, sister, and brother-in-law for a little while before heading home. On the drive, we stopped to pick up the pieces I recently got framed.
And then hung them up. I love how they turned out.
Hey, George! Looking sharp!
Mal and I spent the rest of the evening cleaning, doing laundry, and getting ourselves organized for the start of the week. I love having a clean house on Sunday night. It’s the best feeling.
All in all, a very happy weekend!
