Life is Good

I had every intention of Ben taking my picture today. Really. We knew we could not meet for lunch, but would fit it in at another time. Or so we thought.

I had every intention of getting my hair cut and colored today. Really. However, Mother Nature had her own plan. Snow. Neither Ben nor I have an issue with driving in the snow; we do have an issue when the other cars decide to be out on the road. Traffic. Lots of it. I knew we would never make it to my appointment on time. My sweet Sheli called me to reschedule for next week.

I had every intention of making a quick healthy dinner. Really. We ended up waiting out some of the traffic by having sushi.

Life is good.

Now we are home, I am enjoying amazing sipping chocolate from Trader Joes. If you don't have a Trader Joes, petition for one. It would be worth a neighborhod campaign for a Trader Joes just for the sipping chocolate. Don't get me started on their other items. 3 words. Fab.U.Lous.!

I am in my favorite spot on the couch, computer in my lap, cup o' chocolate by my side, a man I love by my feet. (He is sitting on the couch, not on the floor by my feet!)

Yes, indeed, Life is good.

The rest of the night will be reading a cooking magazine, checking out my favorite blogs, cruising and torturing myself on Etsy, and looking for new recipes in Foodbuzz.com.

Bailey will get to play in the snow later; it is one of her favorite activities. She is currently enjoying a carrot.

Life is good all the way around.

My outfit was cute today. A red plaid short jacket, a black pencil skirt, black tights and pumps. A reindeer pin. I won't wear it again, I promise.

Enjoy your evening. I promise to enjoy mine.

Thanks for checking in.




  1. I really wish there was a TJ closer to me. I checked out their website and it looks really awesome. I hope Bailey is okay and all is well.

  2. Thanks Erin! I totally understand the teacher comment; no disrespect to teachers of course!

  3. Kel I wish I could see that cute outfit. I think if there's no picture you should be able to wear it again. Just tell us it's different tights - we are gullible.
