Just got back from my weekend trip! I had a lot of fun, but whew... I'm tired. The shorter a vacation is, the less of a vacation it is - we've spent the last two days doing almost non-stop sightseeing! I would've liked an extra day, but I didn't have the time, and M really didn't have the time (he works in the entertainment industry, and they're on a tight deadline).

M took me out to a nice restaurant on Saturday, and we split an even nicer restaurant last night. In total, I spent about $400 - $250 for lodging/transportation/tour bus, and $150 for food. Admittedly, it's more than I should be spending right now, but you know what... it was worth it. M and I have both been really stressed lately about work (and school, for me) and this gave us a chance to push it away, and regale in some much needed alone time. And I got to replace an unpleasant memory I had of the city (I last visited with an ex 7 years ago... I used to cringe every time I thought about visiting again... It was that bad).

We're thinking about making it a Valentine's Day tradition... spending a couple days in a new US city every year!

We also exchanged V-day gifts before we left on Friday night... M gave me a bike!! I've been wanting one for ages. So now I have a new (free) way to exercise. :) Can't wait to try it out!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well!

Sounds like a great trip! I agree, it's not always the smartest thing to do during a recession, but going on trips keeps me sane!!!

I like your idea of the new city each valentine's day!

Me too!! And sanity is important! ;)

It's too bad it's cold everywhere in the US during Feb! But it'll let me get some wear out of my winter clothes :)
