With the holidays behind us, some of us are looking for respite for our wallets and holiday snacking. While I can’t promise that there won’t be good snacks at the places I recommend, I do believe you will have a great time. As a newlywed, I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday season, and the cold weather made it even more magical for this Cali girl. I would be lying if I said that I was as active as I thought I would be during the two-week hiatus that the Rocket takes yearly. I watched many a Netflix series, and most nights, I was asleep around 6 pm. However, I am totally unashamed because I ate what I wanted, slept when needed, and maximized some good old me time. This isn’t something I relish in too often simply because my everyday life keeps me pretty busy. However between some good naps and snacks, I found us a few fun things to do around town this week and weekend. I kept the list short and sweet this week since most of us will be adjusting to returning to work and silently crying when the alarm sounds off. So if your ready, here it goes:
