“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” -Audrey Hepburn
February was the month of winter storms for us. We had ice storms and snow storms and I had to stay home from work for two (separate) days. At the start of the month was the Superbowl. I was rooting for the Patriots and Kasey picked the Seahawks.
One of the things I love about my job. Haha, jokes. But seriously, I get a little spoiled sometimes.
Sometimes I suck up the allergies because Polly is just super precious.
In February I got my bed! I had been drooling over that thing for months. I am still in love with it in all of it’s super girlie glory.
Kasey and I were going on a few walks a week to get exercise. It was hard to keep up and eventually we stopped because it was dark when I got home from work. Now I just dance around in the bonus room or do yoga. Maybe I’ll write a post about my recent fitness journey later when I’m feeling more brave. Right now as it stands in May I’m pretty proud of myself.
Valentines Day. I kind of love this holiday. I’m a self-proclaimed gushing romantic.
I like flowers and candle lit dinners. I like the effort that it shows and it makes me all teary. This year I didn’t know how I would feel about the day. I’ve never been the “I-hate-being-single” woman or the “singles awareness day, Valentines Day sucks” type. I think that singleness and relationships have pro’s and con’s and I like that couples get to be all cute and romantic. Who am I to be bitter? It’s a waste of my time to hold resentment or jealousy.
Despite that the day was harder than I expected. My coworkers, and most especially my brother-in-law were awesome. I’m so grateful for everyone here in North Carolina, it’s nuts.
Polly and Coco love snow days.
This is February-Jamie thinking that the humidity is making her hair crazy. That’s cute, sweetie, but just wait until a couple months later. You will wish February back again.
I’m really really really into the Oscars. I am taking a hiatus from my other blog currently, but I watch Oscar nominated films and then review them here. This is the third year in a row I have printed Oscar ballots and provided prizes for the person who predicts the most wins. February is just an all around great month, friends.
What is this? There are white things in the air!
See the Canadian in his natural element.
This is the face of a dog who wants NOTHING but to go outside together and play in the snow.
Just a family of dorks.
Coco got a little excited and punched me in the face. Again.
Last but not least, I leave you with this gem. If you ever need some cheering up or are particularly bored, I will be glad to send you an ugly picture of myself to brighten your day.
Until next time,
