How glorious today was! I truly did not believe it would actually hit the 60s AND be sunny, but boy, it sure as heck did! I got a somewhat rough and premature start to the day thanks to this little cutie:
Looks so innocent, hm? Well, around 6am this morning I happened to notice turning a momentary wake-up, that she wasn’t on the bed. It’s a very odd occurrence, because she’s normally either curled up on a pillow near my feet, or somewhere next to my body. Especially since it’s chilly at night and HTB isn’t home. But I couldn’t find her! I totally freaked out! I turned on all the lights, I checked the closet, I started pulling out storage bins from under the bed, all the while shouting: CHLOE CHLOE!
I thought, God, what if she somehow suffocated? But where was she? Freaking out I tell you. I was nearing my wit’s end, and was about to get on the phone and call… ANYONE, and then I looked at the bed again. I took my hand and ran it over the mattress and felt a solid bump. I flung back the covers, and lo and behold, there was the little minx, all sleepy-eyed, giving a little stretch in my direction. I totally yelled at her, but only because I was so relieved she was alive. But honestly, what’s her problem? Couldn’t she tell I was upset? Why didn’t she stir or make a noise or something? God.
So anyway, that kinda threw me off. Then I went into the tiny second bedroom and laid out my yoga mat and pumped up the space heater. After taking the pups for a quick walk, I did a bit of yoga with the heater on, and while it was no Hot Yoga class, it was actually really nice! I think I’ll do that again tomorrow.
Today was so boss that I couldn’t stay inside. I had tons and tons of reading to do, so me and the kids took blankets outside, pretty much right in front of the condo steps, and laid out. They loved it. It felt amazing to have that sun all warm and delicious on our skin! Later on I took them to the school to run around in the grass football field and chase geese (only Sam chases, Chloe just watches with an air of snottiness), and then I hit up Derby Street Shoppes for some walking and window-shopping. I definitely got my retail therapy on, and it was awesome, because guess what?
I am ONE JEAN SIZE SMALLER.
Take that… whomever.
So that was cool. Obviously I had to buy the jeans, in that smaller size. Out of my hands(into my closet).
I’ve been so remiss with the picture-taking lately, but I promise to be better, especially this weekend at my Wedding Shower!
I definitely didn’t wear green OR celebrate with boozey today, but Happy St. Patty’s Day to you! I’m sure you’re in the thick of it right now, so be safe and pop a couple Advils before you hit the pillow 🙂
PS – Do you like the new header? I made it myself. 🙂
