my (our) weekend with sean

Gosh, the weekend flew by! Our weekdays are so hectic and literally, I’m sad when Monday rolls around. Here’s a quick recap of our weekend before I hit our white fluffy sheets – I’m beat today!

Friday night Rob wasn’t feel well so we just hung out and relaxed, quite unusual for us and it was heaven!

Saturday we work up bright and early to head to our church for phase IV of Project Haggai. For the last several months we’ve been working on renovating our church. I forgot my camera so I’ll have to wait to post pictures of our hard work. Essentially, we are renovating our entire church to a more contemporary look and feel (brown and tangerine are the inspiration colors). This process will take a very long time, but little by little, our little church on the corner will soon standout as a true gem in Long Beach. Here are our new logos:




Saturday evening we went with Emily and Joe to GS and the movies. We saw Sean Penn’s new movie Into the Wild. Wow, it’s incredibly well done and very thought provoking. I won’t give any of it away, but I highly recommend ya’ll see it! I’ve never been a particularly huge Sean Penn fan, I didn’t dislike him nor did I seek out his work, but I’m definitely going to pay more attention to him now - more to come on why…

Sunday after church, we went to lunch with Rob’s parents. We checked out this new restaurant, On the Mark in Belmont Shores. It was really good and the service was great, with the exception of the owner’s daughter who was super precocious. She was cute at first, taking our drink orders and asking if we needed anything, but then she just got weird when she started asking me where we live and walking back and forth pretending to question me like I was on a witness stand. Perhaps we should hook her up with WeeMo. I was probably not the best luncheon buddy – I was kind of grumpy and a bit concerned about completing my homework. Sorry Marie and Terry…I’ll be better company next time. Nonetheless, it was wonderful spending time with you.

Sunday night we had dinner plans in Hollywood with one of Rob’s potential business partners and his lovely wife. While I typically don’t like having late dinner plans on Sunday evenings, I was really looking forward to hanging out with this couple. They are really down-to-earth and funny. When we arrived to their house, they had two restaurants in mind, one of them was at the Chateau Marmont…uh, yeah, sign me up! I guess the pizza place they also had in mind is really good (it was nearly a 2 hour wait), but I was ready to celebrity watch! During dinner, which was really good, we didn’t see anyone. But when we headed to the bar and lounge area my celeb-dar really kicked in. As Rob and I walked on the lounge, he whispered to me, “did you see Sean Penn?” My response, “NO!” Then I had to casually walk back to scope him out. I swear Sean Penn made eye contact with me! I excitedly told Rob and the others and they kind of laughed at me. Whatever, I knew the truth. Just a few minutes later though, Sean Penn walked by our table and he totally made eye contact with me again! This time though, the others saw! I guess my little pigtails and new Gap jacket really are irresistible! Thus, the title of my blog, “my weekend with sean” – except Rob wanted it to be “our weekend with sean”. Sorry, babe…Sean was checkin’ me out…but don’t worry, I wasn’t checking him out…


This is what Sean looked like last night...

Love the logos. Love that you saw Sean Penn. I'm not a huge Sean Penn fan (at all), but it's fantastic that you saw him!

Ooooh, that's a great sighting! And it sounds like a very pleasant weekend.

Was Mozza the pizza place you guys were considering? I hear that reservations fill up a month in advance.

Robert said...

"Irresistible," honey? Wow, and we thought I was the cocky one in the family... : )

Jolene said...

LOL at Rob's comment! haha! That's awesome! I'm sure he WAS checking you out! Great sighting!!! I've always wanted to go there too! Look at you going to all these fancy dinners lately. :)

i am so bad at finding celebs in the crowd. booo! but that was a great sighting -- he is really quite adorable and it seems like he was thinking the same thing about you ;)

if you haven't seen it yet, check out I Am Sam. Sean Penn is the lead, Dakota Fanning (I think) and Michelle Pfiffer are in it too --- wonderful movie, albeit heartbreaking in parts.

I'm not a huge Sean Penn fan, but just the fact that he was checking you out bumps him up on my cool meter. ;) Sounds like a great weekend. Good luck with the church refurb.
