I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's/Presidents Day Weekend! We definitely had a great one! On Friday night, our friends had us over and we cooked a wonderful Valentine's meal. It was so good! We had steaks, potatoes, salad, bread, and mushrooms. And no meal would be complete without some chocolate! It was such a fun evening.
Our husbands surprised us by telling us they are sending us to Ishigaki Island for a birthday getaway. They will both be gone for our March birthdays again this year, so they wanted to do something nice. We are so excited for a little girls weekend getaway to a beautiful island about an hour south of Okinawa. Thanks boys!

One of my favorite things to do is make Valentine themed breakfast, so that is what we did Saturday morning. Turkey bacon that failed to look like hearts and heart-shaped egg in a frame. The rest of the day was spent running errands to get ready for our camping trip the next day, walking on the beach, and grilling out that evening. My new favorite thing is to get a local cabbage and grill it!
Sunday I grocery shopped in the morning and then watched the Cats lose, unfortunately, and then we packed up and headed West for an evening of camping on Torii Beach. The weather was great. It was slightly overcast with a little breeze, perfect for snuggling up next to a fire. We made a fire, grilled hotdogs and brats, made s'mores, and watched the sunset. It was pretty much perfection. We ran out of firewood around 9, so we decided to head to bed. We slept great, besides being woken up by a cat raiding our campsite. In the morning we packed up quickly and rushed home because we got a text from the person who went to take Lexie out that she wouldn't go outside. At the point we had been gone a good 18 hours, so when we got home we were surprised she hadn't gone to the bathroom in the house. I guess her diva tendencies allow her to hold it for long periods of time.
It was such a fun, relaxing weekend! We foresee many more beach camping trips in our future.
