heres a few things that are making me happy today...
1. a weekend full of hiking up madonna mountain and on the bluff on montana de oro
from madonna looking over slo.
from the bluffs of montana de oro over the clear (weird?!?) pacific ocean skies.
2. four days until i get to see dr. brandon weipert, dpt in the making! ahhh so excited!!!
3. big ol' coffee in hand as i type this. thank the coffee god, or i would be a cranky, unproductive girl today
4. a girls night out at a hotel for my friend katies birthday- and yes we did watch four episodes of locked up raw, eat a whole baguette with cheese, stroll on the beach, and enjoyed 'jo mamas' coffee and quiche in the morning in avila. perfect, i know!
5. get to see my seeester this weekend down at ucla where she goes. wahoo!
can you say ucla cafeteria brunch, third street promenade, and novel cafe dinner= best thing in the world
and as for your monday, if it hasn't already been great, i hope it turns right around and puts a smile on your face.
beautiful weather, no class until 1pm, and there's been a whole lot of this...
aka trying to get my life together...
resume writing, grad school searching, internship finding, additional certifications, job openings, classes situating, oh yea and that thing that you call 'college graduation' in less than four months?!?!
so anyhoot, i met my dad for breakfast at 'the breakfast buzz' then decided to take a walk instead of heading back to the apartment to do more planning, sleeping, eating, etc.
i walked to my moms office,
chatted a bit,
strolled around downtown,
grabbed an always delicious 'black horse coffee',
snapped some pictures here and there,
then headed back to the apt in a round about way.
it was great and cleared my head a bit.
there's nothing like a little slo town morning walk.
everything's so peaceful, happy, and simple.
just what i needed.
i mean really, you gotta love the outdoor cafes,
old people sipping coffee on a thursday morning at 1030am,
friendly people waving 'hello',
and the simple, safe, and clean feel of higuera st. and downtown slo.
to top it off, i get to come back to this apartment,
with this view,
and great roommates.
no wonder oprah says slo is the happiest town in the usa!
so yesterday i had to say 'see you later alligator' to my best friend and boyfriend brandon,
because today he starts graduate school at asuza pacific where he will get his doctorate, yes doctorate, in physical therapy. what, what?!? what a stud. he'll be the bestest pt in the whole world and so many little children will be so lucky to have him as their pt someday.
i am so happy for him:)
see you in a few weeks! i love you dr. weipert! xo!
happy monday because i get to spent pretty much every waking moment with these three jems.
they even had the sweetest card and cookies set out in my room for when i got home from dropping off brandon and to top it off we have a roomie dinner tonight. yay!
happy monday because class got canceled today and homework got postponed, meaning i get to make my valentines cards today... and we all know how much i love crafting!
happy monday because i treated myself to a medium non-fat iced white mocha from peets and im probably gonna splurge on a gus's sandwich today. we all know i believe that food is the best when you need a little pick-me-up:)
happy monday because i get to plan, clean, reorganize, rid-out, etc etc etc my life this week. no major tests or projects and i need a little me time. its been too long and those four loads of laundry are only growing. ahh spring is near and the sun is already out. yaya for february in slo!
(too bad i didnt take this picture... maybe a hike up madonna or bishops this weekend?)
maybe the start to a new series of 'happy monday.'
but who are we kidding? im the worst blogger ever.
its worth a try i guess.
p.s. this is just for you roomies. since i just found out you group text when i blog.
