This holiday weekend my guy and I mastered the “art of doing nothing.” Well, almost. This is how I would describe this year’s Fourth of July weekend – we. did. nothing. – and it felt wonderful!
- JULY 3RD, THURSDAY: Happy Hour with the girls at Tacolicious. Hungout with J for another glass of wine at Skylark in the Mission after H went home and A went to another party. Then we bought pupusas to take home to our men. Went home at almost 10 pm knowing it was going to be a loooong weekend and no work tomorrow! Yay!
- JULY 4TH, FRIDAY: “Just me and my guy” 4th of July. Barbeque, movie marathon, being lazy and lit the fireworks in the evening. My guy and I stayed up until 2 am. It was romantic in a lazy kind of way and super-fun!
- JULY 5TH, SATURDAY: We were planning to go for a drive to Half Moon Bay. We woke up at around 8 am but went back to sleep at almost 10 am and did not wake up until past noon! Yikes! We have not done this in a long time!!! I made him a brunch of pancakes and egg omelette while I had the leftover pupusa and coffee. Stayed in our pjs all day and watched more TV. We finally left the house for date night at Tambo – a Peruvian restaurant in Oakland. (I guess, Half Moon Bay will just have to wait until next weekend.)
- JULY 6TH, SUNDAY: “Me Time." House chores. Jazz and lots of it. Mud mask and deep hair conditioning. A quick run to Trader Joe’s to stock up on goodies. Pasta with feta, fresh basil, parmesan and Blood Orange EVOO. Two glasses of refreshing rosé . Downloaded Photoshop and learning. Devoured a thrilling detective story set in Paris (nope, no chicklit this time). Candles. Warm mini peach and blueberry pies from Trader Joe’s. And the purring kitty.
Good night and have a wonderful second week of July ahead of you!
