president's day holiday.


we have the day off from work today in honor of president's day! aren't three day weekends so much fun? and, despite that it was pouring rain for 48 hours straight, this turned out to be a fantastic weekend.

things I loved about this weekend:

old fashioned cheeseburger + fries + chocolate shake at johnny rocket's

snuggling on the couch watching the girl with the dragon tattoo while it was pouring outside

a relaxing manicure and pedicure

watching old episodes of sex and the city while shoe shopping online

eating a week's worth of calories at the cheesecake factory

savoring every last bite of the fresh strawberry cheesecake we ordered to-go

6 mile hike to the lexington reservoir and around St. Joseph's hill (to make up for all of the unhealthy eating!)

walking around downtown los gatos, knowing that even though we pay an arm and a leg for our tiny apartment, it is a GORGEOUS town and we are really lucky to live here

enjoying the King's Speech with a bucket of buttered popcorn

... and the weekend's not over yet!

happy monday!
