Long Weekend Recap

Don't you just love long weekends?! 3 days off of work and 5 nights off of school, I'm refreshed and ready to take on the world.

Friday, a friend came over and I cut his hair. Then met up with some friends at Baja Bettys for happy hour.

Saturday, woke up late, had breakfast with Ted and spent the day relaxing at home. Later in the evening, we picked up his parents from the airport and they came over for spaghetti dinner.

Sunday, Ted and I went up to the Wild Animal Park and spent the day up there. For dinner we met up with his parents again for some sushi.

Monday, I relaxed with my kitties while Ted went to work. He wasn't feeling so hot so he came home early and we just watched some movies and made some soup.
