Happy-Super-Belated-Valentines-Day!

This weekend also happened to mark the beginning of my very last reading week ever! Kind of a sad thought some to think of it! Now I'll have to plan to take time off.... oh real-world, am I ever not looking forward to you....

BUT ANYWAYS, with a little bit of time off, J and I decided to head to Ottawa to visit my fam for a few days, see a few sights, and take advantage of the fabulous restaurants for our first v-day together.

We ended up going to Stella Osteria, a classy lil' place in the Byward Market. The food was excellent (my meat was so tender and delicious!), and up until it was time to leave, the service was wonderful... it was only when we went to retrieve our coats that we were ignored for a good 10 minutes by the hostess who was too busy counting out tips. if there was a smiley with a "gr" face i'd be using it right now. for a classy place.. that was probably the least classy thing someone could do.

We also ended up going to see Valentines Day last Saturday night. Despite the bad reviews, I actually really enjoyed it... and even though I called who Julia Roberts' character was going to see halfway through the movie... it made me tear up like a lil girl. But I WILL agree that it was character over load, and the Taylors could have been very easily cut out... (it doesnt help that im anti-swift to begin with either!)

All in all it was a wonderful weekend... and now for the only outfit i managed to photograph in four days:
