Well our wknds are weird in Dubai....not the norm! Our wknds are Thursday, Friday, Saturday....unlike everyone elses Friday, Saturday, Sunday. We work Sunday to Thursday....soooo tomorrow is my wknd :D We have a farewell party tomorrow night at this DIVINE japanese restaurant called Sho Cho, right on the ocean, very funky place...so excited. Then Friday, we have a friends 30th bday brunch....now a brunch is famous in Dubai. All the hotel restaurants do it (well hotel restaurants are the only restaurants that are allowed to sell alcohol!) - basically the brunch is between 12pm and 4pm, and you pay a certain set amount, like, 250, and you eat all you can, drink all you can....it's loads of fun! saturday, I will hopefully be sunbathing with Tallula :D

What are you all up to? (sorry for the uber long post)

We have a busy one too. My daughter is getting married Friday and we have family coming in starting Thursday (not so wonderful actually) thru Saturday. Sunday my husband's friend from Hawaii will be here for the day and we plan on just relaxing at the barn and grilling with a few other friends and recovering!

Wow Stace, you sure have a busy weekend :). What kind of food can you find in a brunch in Dubai?
Me this weekend. My parents are comming to my place and we are going to have breakfast. After, we are going to buy soil and plant some seeds in Hermy's outside enclosure. Saturday night, My fiance and I are probably going to the movies. Sunday, it is mother day. So We will have lunch at my fiance's mom and Dinner at my parents house :D.

Sendie,

I MAY be driving up to Madera (a small city just north of Fresno) to bring my rescued snapper to Kevin so that he can take it to the CTTC Exec. board meeting and give it to the person who handles the snapper relocation program for California. Too bad Kevin can't come here, as I just LOVE giving "The Tour"!! :D

Oh, and I'll be picking up poop, feeding, picking up poop and feeding!

My son comes home from college next Wed. for the whole summer. I can't wait. This Saturday I will clean his whole room and put on new sheets and comforter. Sunday all my other sons are taking me out to eat for Mothers Day. Then we are going to start planting our vegetable garden when we come home. A fun day for me.

I was going to clean out Trevor's enclosure but I did it tonight! :) It's pretty and smells better now.

So, just housework, grocery shopping, and maybe we'll go out for sushi. Yum.

Wow all sounds awesome !!! Ooooh Kate,I LOVE sushi, going for sushi at the farewell tonight, and will take full advantage and pig out as my bosses are paying :D

Isa, Dubai brunch food depends on the restaurant really, some of them have all sorts of food....sushi, roasts, every salad you can think of, lobster, seafood, steaks, you name it. I've never been to this place before, where we're going tomorrow. It's called the Warehouse, you can choose from 30 different kinds of mojitos....so this should be interesting !!! :p I will report back on the food :)

Evan - well done for finishing your last exam, must feel SO good !!!! I remember that feeling, its relaxation and party time now :p
Yvonne, enjoy your trip to Madera! Drive safely :) And have fun cleaning poop and feeding :p

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL wknd, and an AWESOME Mothers day !!!!!!! Thats on Sunday right? I will write a Mothers day thread while Im at work :p

Yup it's definitely true ! You need an alcohol license to buy alcohol form the very few alcohol stores that there are....and it's a big mission to get one! Otherwise you can only drink at hotel restaurants. There is a big store at a hotel where we stock up for the month on alcohol....it's way cheaper there and you don't need a license as it's in a different state...the only thing is, that it's over an hour drive away, hence why we do the trip monthly.

This coming weekend no plans, I like it that way on Holiday weekends. Would rather stay home, maybe lie by the pool and have no plans and not even think about work for three days.
