A Fabulous Weekend!

Dental Student and I magically had off this Friday.  Sometimes you don't question, you just go with it!  After waking up and running some errands (which MAY have included Dental Students first pedicure) we decided to take advantage of the perfect summer weather.

We packed up Havi and headed over to Banc, a restaurant nearby with a yummy brunch menu.  The best part of the meal is we realized how far Havi has come when dining outside with us.  She used to pace and beg next to the table (things she actually never did at home).  She would also bug the other tables.  When we got to Banc we sat in a shady are in the corner so Havi would not be in the way.  I handed her a deer antler and she settled down under Dental Students chair and didn't move the full hour we were there!  We went on a very long walk to reward Havi's excellent behavior.

Then, the inevitable happened.  My Mac crashed.  We bought our Macs exactly two years ago when we were starting Graduate School.  The past 2 months I was getting the "spinny wheel of death" every time I tried to do something.  (Hence why the blog posts were short and sweet.)  Finally, on Friday it just stopped turning on.  Tracy, our amazing Genius at the Genius Bar took the Mac to replace the hard drive and I'll get it back in 5-7 business days.  Luckily, Dental Student is AMAZING and registered me for AppleCare so the repair is free AND backed up my computer and lent me his so I survive this week of school.  I am one lucky chick.

Friday night we headed to a friend's apartment for Shabbat Dinner and Saturday we went to Long Island to watch Law Student's brother play an awesome game of Varsity soccer for his High School team. Then, I told Dental Student we had an annoying Law School dinner in the East Village.  When we got to the restaurant 12 people were waiting for him...his brother and sister-in-law and their friend, my brother, six friends from high school, a college friend, and dental school friend.  He was shocked and surprised.  He turns 26 in two weeks and I thought getting everyone together at Sammy's Roumanian would be the perfect present.  Apparently, I was right.  (Click the link to learn about Sammy's, a really cool and fun restaurant with a ton of history.)

Sunday was spent watching football and eating chicken dip.

Sorry for the lack of pictures, but they're obviously on my currently-being-repaired-computer!

What did you guys do this weekend!?


  1. Hey Havi!
    Wow, great job at the restaurant! You're a good girl. I hope you got a few yummers for behaving! BOL Great party surprise for your peep! I spent the weekend getting a bath (blech) and a brushing (nice) and snoozing since it was cool & rainy here. You weekend was more fun than mine! :)
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  2. Yay for fun weekends! We went home to Nebraska to visit my family and while watching the Husker game downtown, my car got towed for being on private property...NOT FUN! We also got news that a certain ginger-colored girl will be returning to live with us very soon...again, not fun....but I will live vicariously through other people's fun weekends! :)

  3. Sounds like a fun weekend! We had a laidback weekend agility class on Saturday. Then ran errands. Sunday, I spent the day at a dance show taking photos :)

  4. I love it when we have one of those special unexpected days that turns out so well. Sorry about your computer troubles, but glad they are working out OK.

    Good luck with the fall semester.

  5. I love free days off!


  6. Yeah for Havi and the outdoor restaurant. It took us a long time with our pooches, but now it is so fun.

  7. Oh if only I could go to a restaurant!
