I’d like to believe I live to the fullest each and every day but the reality is I live for the weekends. A typical work week usually consist of the daily grind, some exercise, cleaning, laundry and cooking. You know, all the fun and exciting stuff we do as responsible adults. The weekends are my opportunity to sleep in, let loose, eat out, ride my bike and dress any way I would like without offending the office dress code.
This past Saturday was an unusual day spent as a couple eating and shopping. I say unusual because I typically only shop with my girlfriends. Jason is rarely interested in pursuing boutiques and/or malls. Our weekly quality time together typically consists of riding bikes, climbing, movies, games and eating out. The light rain that was on and off again for most of the day made staying indoors very inviting. His only request; we had to ride our bikes to any local east bay destination and/or to Bart.

He allowed me to order for him as I am hands down the foodie in this relationship. I am aware of his food preferences so I ordered the oven cooked eggs in an herb and cream sauce, pork herb sausage and house potatoes cooked in duck fat. His initial reaction wasn’t as enthused as I would have liked but once the meal arrived he was pleased.
