A Lovely Red Weekend


Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!! Well… Happy POST Valentine’s Day/Weekend. I hope that you all were treated as nicely as you deserved by somebody special in your life, whether it be a significant other, family or friend… it’s not always physical love that needs to be celebrated.

Max and I celebrated on the 13th since my beautiful and amazing friend Danielle came to visit from the 14th until today (!!!!!!), and Max chef-ed me up a delicious dinner that put me in a mild food coma – it was a mozzarella bake dish that included sausage, sauteed spinach with garlic & olive oil, gemelli pasta, roasted red peppers and pesto. ‘Twas yum.

He also ate about 10 of my brownie-swirled cookies in around 3 hours, which was awesome that he loved them so much, but I can’t say I would recommend consuming that many in such a short period of time. I think that at this point – a mere 4 days later – he has already polished off the two plates that I gave him. Zut alors.

Anyway, Danielle arrived on the 14th and we just spent the weekend hanging around and enjoying ourselves; it was lovely. I took her to Raw Bobs and The Rock Spot for some climbing, we became mildly addicted to the show Girls (I recommend watching it – if you’re okay with nakedness; it’s hilarious and so so strange), got a little swilly with some red wine during the snow storm that we had, and we even created a beautiful snow maiden named Crystal Iceis. She’s a classy broad with nipple tassels. Yes, you read that correctly.

The main reason for Danielle’s visit however was because I bought us tickets to the 6th Annual Cat Country Snowball, which was on Sunday the 16th.

We are both pretty die-hard country fans, and Rodney Atkins was the headliner, with other performances by Parmalee and The Henningsens.

There We Are!

It was an amazing time. The venue was spacious, beautifully decorated with a silent auction and reasonably priced food and drink (woo!), the performers were perfect, the guests were all friendly – except for one girl fight that broke out between two 40+ year old women… so not okay – and all the proceeds went to benefit “Go Red For Women“, which is via the American Heart Association to fight against heart disease in women. When people with better video cameras than myself start posting videos I will be sure to spread the love, but for now pictures will have to do!

So that’s how I spent my Valentine’s Day weekend! Good friends, good food, good times – how most weekends should be spent! Or everyday for that matter…. stay beautiful darlings.


About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
