Mini Break

Last weekend, Matt had a fairly light study load since he had taken his first mini of the semester that week. I love these weekends as I can have his undivided attention for more than just a couple hours a day.

So this is my warning. This post will be pretty boring, as we thoroughly enjoyed the 'break' by doing nothing. There's only so much you can write about that.

Friday night we had a date night. He made the Dominican version of chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes. This is my favorite meal when I'm home and my mom always makes this for us when we visit. Good comfort food!

Saturday, he studied for a couple of hours, then we went to the beach. We were graced with the presence of the sun and took full advantage as it has been a rather unfortunate event lately.

I just love having the beach a few minutes away from where we live. After getting tired of the little Dominican frustrations we experience, a weekend at the beach puts in a little perspective of what a beautiful place we are living in.

Sunday we had the same routine. He studied for a few hours in the morning, and then we had time to go to the beach again. Two sunny days in a row was treat!

After studying for seven straight weeks, it was a much needed break to detox his mind and clear his head a bit before taking on the next block.

So we opted for lunch on the beach and took in the relaxing day.

Can you spot the crab?
Like I said, pretty boring. But at least there are some good pictures, and you can't go wrong with a video of Matt doing a cannonball.
