Why can't every day look like this? I think I'm going to print some of these pictures (maybe canvas, ooo la la!) and hang them above my bed, because they instantly put me in a better mood just looking at them:)
Hope everyone is enjoying this phenomenal weather! I wish EVERY day felt like these past few days have felt - I'll admit, I think part of the reason I'm so excited about this weather is A) no more winter jackets, and B) flip flops. Gotta love flip flops:)
Sometimes, I have random things to say to all of you out in the internet world, but I'm not sure where to put it on my blog. So I decided to start a new category called "Monday's Musings" - and that's all it will be - random things I want to tell all of you out there. Just 'cause. Who wouldn't want to hear my random thoughts, right? On a Monday? Sound good? K:)
When I was growing up, we only ever had one pet - a rabbit named Peter. Yes, Peter the Rabbit. Our family won the "most creative pet name" award. No lie. I wasn't really a "pet" person - this tiny floppy ear rabbit kind of scared me and I wouldn't even pick him up until we had him for about a year. At first I would only hold him if he was wrapped in a towel - because, you know a thin towel would totally protect me if he decided to bite me (because that's what rabbits are known for, being vicious, right?). Yes, I was weird, and pretty much afraid of all animals. I was definitely never a "cat person" - they kinda creeped me out. But then my sister got a little cat named Kayla, and I kinda fell in love. A little more than kinda. So for the last two weeks I had to watch Kayla when my sister and mom went to Florida (yes, it was torturous knowing they were in sunny Florida while I was stuck up here in the ugly winter of PA). And I think I've kinda turned into a pet person. She kept me company in my office every night while I worked - this is Miss Kayla:
I just love her! The picture above is a little blurry, because she does NOT sit still, and it was hard enough getting that picture - same with the self portrait below hah. I miss my little office buddy!
Remember getting care packages in the mail in college? Weren't those the best? Well I still get 'em. My sister is the best - every once in a while she surprises me with a package full of little gifts, and each gift is wrapped individually - because that always makes it WAY more exciting unwrapping each thing:) Jess, you're the best.....you really are:) So the other day I got a package that was covered in shamrock stickers, and I tore through that thing like it was Christmas - it totally made my week! In the package she gave me this shirt and pair of socks:
I'm running a St. Patrick's Day 5K this weekend, so she wanted me to have something awesome to wear. So I'll be rocking this t-shirt, black shorts, and these socks pulled up to my knees. And I'm going to look awesome doing it. No matter what Jay tells you. I think I'm going to try to find shamrock shaped sunglasses and make Jay wear them during the run - he'll DEFINITELY be up for that. I'll be sure to tweet about it if I accomplish that:)
