Happy Friday.  Am I the only one who is glad there is no NFL Football this weekend?  For the first time since September I will finally get a chance to spend a Sunday with BF and I’m excited.  Until next weekend that is when it’s time for the Superbowl.  It’s OK!  If you’re husband or boyfriend is obsessed with sports like mine is I’m sure you’re like me and you’re happy to have whatever time you can with him.  Right?

Enjoy your weekend.  Here are some great posts from our friends across the web:

Friday Faves: Keeping busy in the cold

IMG_1714

Happy Friday Loves.  It’s mid January, how are you holding up during the cold winter months?  Actually here’s a better question, is it cold where you live?  I always envy people who don’t have to deal with cold weather but then I don’t think I could imagine a Christmas without snow.  Actually yes I could.

I can definitely live without winter, but fall is a whole other story.  I love fall, it’s definitely my favorite time of the year.  The colors are pretty and the cool, fresh air mixed with sunshine is perfect weather.

Up here in the cold Northeast winter is brutal and there’s not much to do because it’s so cold.  This year I’m getting through winter because I have a project – well two actually.  I’m going to the gym and I’m working on decorating our home.  January has been going by pretty quickly and I can only hope that February does the same.

How are you staying busy during winter?

Friday Faves: Back to the Salt Mines

Happy Friday.  Well I survived it, my first week back to work after a lovely two week vacation.  Getting out of bed to an alarm clock, venturing out in the cold wind and walking through a foot of snow to the office is definitely different than how I’ve been living over the last two weeks.

I spent almost the entire 14 days in my pyjamas, watching Netflix (they added Friends!) and eating chocolate.  Well all that stopped Monday as I snapped back into reality.   That’s the thing about having a nice vacation, it gives us something to look forward to before we leave and remember when we go back to work.

How did you spend your Christmas vacation?

Friday Faves: Happy New Year

IMG_2252Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonder December 31st and a relaxing January 1st.  We sure did.  It’s too cold to get all dressed up and go out on NYE so we order Chinese food, stay in and watch Ryan Seacrest on TV.  Have you ever been to Times Square to celebrate New Year’s Eve?  I did it once and although it was fun to experience one time I wouldn’t do it again..

PS that’s the last Santa picture until December.  But isn’t it cute?  I bought it at the grocery store for $0.99 – plant, pot and all.

Happy New Year Loves.  Enjoy these posts from our friends:
