A lovely weekend

pink flowers and dress

Hello lovely people!

I hope you guys had a nice weekend, whether you did anything special for Valentine’s Day or not. Personally, I love Valentine’s Day. I l love love and it’s nice seeing it everywhere. So, I thought I would share some photos from my weekend with you.

On Friday night, my mom met my oldest sister and I ate a California Pizza Kitchen with flowers from a local grocery store. She’s is honestly the sweetest lady I know! I wish I would have given her something too. I’ll think of something and give it to her when she’s least expecting it.

While in the restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised to see how many families were out to dinner together. Maybe that had something to do with the time we were eating. We got to the restaurant around 5:30 p.m., so it makes sense that there were babies and little kiddos with their parents. I thought it was sweet! Maybe the parents couldn’t get a babysitter, but I would like to think at least some of those parents wanted to share the restaurant experience with their little ones.


Even though I tried not to care about Valentine’s Day and not getting to spend the actual day with my boyfriend, I still let the expectations get to me this weekend. Ugh, expectations. Don’t expectations suck? I say chuck ’em out the window if you can.

The thing is, Paul is such a go-with-the-flow guy and I love making plans. I don’t mean to air my dirty laundry in public, but I also don’t want to say everything is perfect all the time. What I will say is this. Communication is the key to life. He didn’t even realize I wanted him to decide what to do until I told him. He likes letting me pick our itinerary most of the time because he’s a sweetheart and I normally love being the boss. Once we actually discussed our feelings, we had a really nice weekend.

Santa Monica for Valentine's weekend

The photo set above is from Paul’s Instagram. On Sunday we walked from his apartment to the Santa Monica pier and then wandered around the promenade. It was really beautiful out. The weather was nice. I didn’t even need to wear the sweater I brought along. Sadly, I ended up losing it. It must have fallen out of my arms on our walk back to his apartment. Goodbye, perfect yellow Target cardigan. I miss you already.

Oh guys! I have to mention that I can cross one thing off my 24 before 24 list now. Yay! I tried hot sake at this Thai place we went to. The restaurant was called Thai Dishes. Funny name if you ask me. The food was delicious. The sake was, well, interesting. It’s strong and reminded me of vodka. I’ll probably never order it again. I don’t think it’s “my thing.” But it was cool to try!

I have today off from my internship, so I’m going to use it to try more new things and cross stuff off to-do lists. That means practicing coding, practicing Spanish, catching up on blog posts, maybe helping my mom sew and maybe finally fishing Divergent. Oh yeah! I got an internship, by the way! I waited two weeks to say anything on here. Life is looking up!

I would love to hear what you have to say. Leave me a comment and I'll try to write back soon.
