Happy Valentine's Day!

Having never been the biggest fan of Valentine's Day, and somewhat cynical in nature, I'm not at all surprised that I haven't taken very many pictures of hearts this year.  But as much as I am cynical, I am equally a romantic softie.  (Sorry Michael, you sure do have your hands full) :)  Here are some of my favorite heart/love shots from the year.  And in all seriousness, I hope you have a love filled day.

10 on 10: February

And one bonus shot:

Happy 10 on 10!  Oh, and don't knock the 7-Eleven hot chocolate.  It's delicious.  And somehow even more delicious when your boyfriend surprises you with it at work at 3am.

January Weekends

January was the first month in years that I have had consecutive work free weekends.  While I miss all my homies at Store 197, I can't even explain how much I have loved regaining my Saturdays and Sundays.  This month, I had a great time hanging out with friends and family and exploring my new(ish) neighborhood.   Here are some of my favorite shots from my weekend adventures:

01.01: New Years Day walk to Green Lake Bar & Grill for some much needed nourishment.  And some family time by the fire.

01.08: Last minute hang outs and a Seahawk Saturday before the London Hoffmans left us for...well...London.

01.11: Random Tuesday snow day.  Not a weekend, I know, I just love this picture.

01.16: Game night, and a walk to 45th for some supplies.

01.17: MLK Day with two of my favorite people, drinking great coffee and treasure hunting at an antique mall in South Seattle.
Does my cheese box smell like cheese Twix?

01.22: Glassybaby seconds sale.  Thank you Michelle for getting me out of bed and letting me cut in line.  Thank you Grandma for giving me money for Christmas and unknowingly buying me two of these.

01.28: Date night with my man! If you are ever around Lake City and 80th, go to Chiang's Gourmet and order the homemade Shanghai style noodles.  Elizabeth gave me this advice, and I feel it is only right to pass it onto you.  And yes, we had a ton of leftovers.

01.29: Quality time with my momma.  My dad has been working crazy hours, so I was able to steal my mom on Saturday.  My dad took a break from work to join us for lunch, but the rest of the day we pretty much just hung out, drank some coffee and ran a few errands.

Goals for February weekends:  sleep in, schedule some friend time, walk around Green Lake more, and spend less. :)
