Who else has been obsessed with the Olympics?? I don’t know what it is about the Games, but I just get excited for everyone and every sport and every cheesy-as-heck commercial. I’ve been loving watching figure skating especially since I used to be a competitive skater myself, back when I was a nugget (<— click to see proof!).
Joining Katie‘s Marvelous Monday linkup!
Favorite athlete right now? Yulia Lipnitskaya. She’s a 15-year-old Russian figure skater, and she is ridiculous. Not only her flexibility…
…OW…But her jumps are powerful, and her artistry is mature. If you haven’t watched her yet, I highly recommend you do! [Watch here and make sure to watch the 4 minute mark.]
Saturday night included an incredible sushi dinner at my favorite Japanese restaurant ever. My parents and I calculated that this was my seventh time going to this restaurant, and it has only been open for less than a year. The waiters and waitresses recognize us pretty darn well now!
My mom ordered the wagyu beef special as an appetizer, which was melt-in-your mouth amazing. Of course, my personal favorite was the sushi. Mom and I shared a roll combo (eel avocado, tuna, and yellowtail rolls) and the Amazing Tuna Roll special (seared pepper tuna and avocado inside and fatty tuna belly on the outside). Dad also ordered a spider roll (fried soft shell crab) and a Dragon Roll (eel and cucumber inside with avocado outside). GAH. No words.
I was famished when I walked in, and floating on sushi cloud nine when I walked out.
Besides that, it has been a normal-schnormal weekend for us here. Dance, Mass, Sunday school teaching, homework. Before signing off though, I want to share the delicious dinner I ate last night after a long day of dance:
Quinoa, marinara sauce, sautéd spinach, and roasted red pepper-spinach chicken sausage.
Simple, yummy, and super satisfying.
Well this definitely was not my most thrilling post ever, but consider this our Monday morning catch-up 🙂 I hope you all have a great week!
