flowers, food, & football kind of weekend

I can never get enough of weekends, but there's nothing more satisfying than going into work on a Monday knowing you spent your weekend well! Last week was a long one. I worked weird hours to accomodate appointments so when the weekend came, I was ready to crash. Michael has also been working long hours so I've taken over food-related duties (meal planning, cooking, and grocery shopping). One night when I was making dinner, he came home with a bright surprise for me: flowers! The week in Seattle has been grey, grey, and extremely grey, so it was just what I needed to brighten my day.

When Friday hit, I was really craving ramen, so Michael took me to Yoroshiku. As always, it was delicious and totally hit the spot. I recommend it if you're looking for a ramen fix.

On Saturday we went to Cafe Flora for brunch and spent the day working (for him) and writing (for me). Then we met up with some friends at a bar in dowtown to catch the Seahwaks game. I'm not that into football, but man when you live in a city where that's what everyone and anyone seems to be talking about lately, it makes you curious to know what the hype's all about. So I went, and I watched, and I must say it was entertaining.

On Sunday we went out to brunch again (I know, we go too often!), this time at Monsoon. Once back home we went back to work and writing. I FINALLY finished Revision 6 of M2! All it needs is a clean up and polish and I'll be finally able to let it go and get back to M3.


  1. Whoo hoo! Revision down!! YAY!! What is M3? Is it the same story you were working on before, the contemporary, or is it something new?

    We so need weekends like this where we can just enjoy life. ^_^ Those roses are so gorgeous. I need to buy myself some flowers, I haven't done that in a while.

    1. Yes! Whoo! It was slow going with the holidays and what not, but it's finally done! I can finally let it rest for good and move on! But yes, going to dabble into M3, a YA contemporary!

  2. Yay to getting that writing done! So glad you had a great weekend, and super sweet that he brought flowers. Makes me want to elbow my hubs and give him a hint or two ;)
