I need spring.

Everything is cold, cold, COLD.

I sort of got a whiff of it today....sort of....
I saw a girl with citrus hair. I'm talking serious lemon-lime color. Like Sprite on drugs. 

I could smell it.

What I really need is a whiff of the sun.

Valentinians & Brides-to-Be

I have a lot to catch up on!
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day with your sweeties. I know I did. And I got some handmade killer earrings in the deal. I know you would love to see them, but the pictures of me opening them all turned out blurry. Take my word--they're beautiful! My dear Christopher also got me the one thing I've always wanted for V-day but somehow NEVER gotten (curse you ex-boyfriends)--a box of chocolates! Okay okay...cliche, but its chocolate. Stop judging. And it was in the shape of a heart. Aw.

From me to him I decided to get a bunch of little gifts and surprise him with them throughout the day. First up: a bottle of orange Fanta, some pistachios, and a CD of mushy love songs. 

"I hope that you'll say yes
and make my 'fanta-sy' come true,
oh won't you be my Valentine
'cause I'm just 'nuts' for you!"

Get it? Get it??? Mock me if you will. I thought it was cute.

Next up: new after-shave lotion (I personally smelled ALL of the ones in the store), coconut body scrub, and a box of Red Hot candy. No poem this time (rhyming=headache), just a note that said:

"'Cause you are RED HOT!"

Mmmm-hmmm. Yes he is. And to put the icing on my metaphorical cake of gifts, I gave him cufflinks in the shape of levels. They were pretty awesome--thanks Amazon! 


The weekend before Valentine's we went up north to celebrate a friend's bridal shower. It was pretty fun--though I found out I was the oldest one there! At 22. Yowch. A blow to the ego.

Now THATS better. :)

Our last couple weeks in pictures:

Now I shall explain.
The foxy redhead you see is Ashley, who turned 21 last week! Yaaaaay. And she was also the winner of spoons ( I was totally voting for her). Hence the spoon. It was quite a game--no serious injuries. The lovely 3-pieced toast was a yummy snack I had at my friend Kim's house. Her husband made it (what a pro) so I could try some of the amazing jam they had--only I couldn't decide which kind sounded best. So, I had some of each. Yummmmmm. And lastely, that singing boy at the piano is our good friend Tyler! He and our friend Mario performed at Bread & Soup Nite yesterday. Tyler just came out with a CD. Tyler Knight music--look it up. He's amazing! 

By way of other news...we are heading up north this week for a friend's bridal shower and to have some fun with another friend for his birthday. I'm pretty excited...except it seems like this week is being SUPER nasty and destroying all my excitement for the weekend. There's just a lot going on with school and I haven't been in the best of moods. I worry a lot where I'm going to find a job at the end of the semester. :/
