Friday Fragments: Sushi, Rainbows, and Chaperones!

This is definitely a day that needs fragments!! I have a ton of stuff to do in a very short amount of time so I'm going to toss a few fragments out and then get busy!
This afternoon, I am going on a trip! I will be gone all night tonight, all day Saturday, and won't get home until after the kids are in bed Saturday night. I vounteered to chaperone a group of teen girls going on the Revolve Tour this weekend in Columbus, OH. I am seriously excited about this and it has me questioning my sanity just a little bit...
We ate at my favorite sushi place last night. It's called Wild Ginger and is close to home and the sushi is truly amazing. Any time I eat sushi elsewhere, I always end up wanting to come back to Wild Ginger. Lately, I've been getting sushi about once a week. Good thing most sushi is pretty healthy! Last night, a couple of friends were meeting up to have dinner together and they chose Wild Ginger- partially because I rave about it so much. I was nervous! Do you ever feel that way? Like maybe you've built it up too much in your mind and maybe it isn't as awesome as you think it is? Thankfully, it was just as awesome for them. They loved it and I'm hoping I can join them there next time! Whew!
My kids love this sushi place, too. Zach likes that they cut up the oranges on the plate in a fancy way- he likes to play with the peels. Teagan, who can soemtimes be a picky eater and sometimes be an adventurous eater, has recently come to love sushi! Here she is with a piece of our favorite roll- spicy albacore with ponzu sauce. Girlfriend looooooves the ponzu. She soaks her teriyaki chicken in it, dips bites of rice in it, I think she'd drink it if we gave her a straw!
Sometimes, getting stuck in traffic isn't such a bad thing. Especially when it means you get to see a huge rainbow!! It was a double on one side of the street and it actually arced over the street- a full rainbow! I was downright giddy- Jeff thought I was weird.
Time for me to head into a meeting that will last all morning. I leave at noon and have to rush home to completely clean out my car. I have phone calls to make prior to departure and a couple of e-mails to send out. I hope you have a great weekend and get to do something fun, relaxing, uplifting... something you enjoy!

We're sushi fans here too! Great pictures! I haven't seen a rainbow in a long time.

Love your rainbow pics. I need to take the camera with me when I'm out and about!

Teagen looks adorable eating her Sushi! And Zach looks like he's having loads of fun!

Enjoy the conference this weekend!

I just tried Sushi for the first time a few days ago and I will be eating it again. :)

Have fun this weekend. I am so looking forward to my weekend getaway, but that's not until June. :)

Love rainbows - colors sunshine rain and science - very cool
I'm still wanting to get to the somewhere over the rainbow.

My youngest has food allergies and two of them are fish and shell fish :( We ate all of that before he came along and my oldest is a huge california roll lover. Love me some sushi!

Rebecca said...

I love the rainbow (double!) and I want to go eat Sushi with you!

Children liking things other than chicken nuggets is always a plus.

This post was wonderfully upbeat. I hope you had a great time or are having because it's still Saturday.

I'll be praying for you :-)
