i woke up feeling an absolute NEED to paint my nails
so i did.
and i was slightly late for work as a result.
totally worth it.
now they're red.
then i went to work, as usual.
and came home unusually early
which was good
because i--not unlike a little elf--was very busy
i made a few decorations so our little shoebox would look particularly lovey
i made shortbread and sliced strawberries
for strawberry shortcake
i made meat and potatoes
(because this is the way to a man's heart)
(also, conveniently, the way to my own heart)
i lit candles.
wore a festive apron.
and i don't have pictures of any of it.
i do, however, have pictures from this weekend
where the hubs and i spent a delightful couple of days luxurizing at the Drake Hotel
but i will not be sharing them tonight
i will, however, be doing this
i don't know if you've been following this blog for very long
but if you have, you probably are thinking:
"great. another countdown-type thingy.
she's never gonna get through this."
and i would have to agree with you.
but in 31 days, we find out if my hubs will be spending the next four years
in san antonio with me? (yes plz)
or in california (good? no. i'm stuck in san antonio. check out a map. this is bad.)
or in houston (might as well be california.)
and it will be st. patty's day.
(side note: right at this moment, facebook, via my iPhone alerted me to the fact that one of my friends "checked in" at taco bell. color me disgusted. plus i just watched "the social network" and now thoroughly feel as though facebook has rapidly infiltrated and taken over my life.)
i can't decide which thing is better to countdown to.
