orange county trip

this past weekend chester and i escaped the snow and frigid temps & visited our good friends in orange county. it was a perfect getaway, and i miss that weather so much right about now! oh, btw, chester and i got the condo we wanted! we signed a year lease the night before our flight, so that was a big weight lifted off of our shoulders. now i'm spending my free time packing, even though it feels like i'm not really making a dent :/ 

so anyway, tonight i needed a break from packing, and wanted to share some photos from the weekend:

we were excited to visit our favorite restaurant in costa mesa, and we also stopped by our favorite brewery, the bruery. it was a great trip! we already can't wait to go back.

hope you all have a good weekend! i'm crossing my fingers that the snowy forecast won't be as bad as they say. wish us chicago/suburb dwellers luck! haha.
