my pink fridge!

The kids just left for school… Capri is still sleeping, and the house is totally quiet except for the hum of the washer and the dishwasher. I love Monday mornings. My cleaning lady hasn’t come for 2 weeks, I guess 3 now actually since the last 2 Mondays were holidays… my  house is anxiously awaiting […]

happy new year

Happy NEW year… I love it… love it love it… I think it’s like the ultimate MONDAY! And, you know that I love Mondays… last night we got back in town close to midnight, and I didn’t even stay awake long enough to ring in the new year… I crashed… the day after Christmas we […]

Christmas in NYC

Guess how late we just slept in until? Noon. Eric and I are in NYC celebrating our anniversary and e’s birthday… and we got a great deal on a room at my FAVORITE hotel… the Westin! And the Heavenly bed, and hence the reason that we just couldn’t’ quite emerge from bed this morning. We […]

monday night…

Without a doubt, my FAVORITE thing about Christmas is Christmas Cards.  I have always loved making them… but I definitley love getting them. I have received quite a few, and I put them all up on my magnet board and I leave them up forever. Ok, I will admit… I don’t care what the card […]

TIM HOLTZ

Seriously… yesterday I got the biggest TREAT!! Emily and I drove about 2 hours north to Prescott, AZ and spent the day with Tim Holtz… we have been trying to get together for like 2 years now… I am always complaining to him that I need some instructions since I never can stand and watch […]

sunny AZ!

72 degrees never felt so great to me as walking off the plane in my own hometown after a little visit to -18 Minneapolis. I have to say, AZ rocks this time of year…it’s gorgeous! For those of you who guessed the ONE and ONLY Cathy Zielske is who was making me dinner… you were […]

the forest

here is the overall shot… it’s hard to take a good photo of the whole thing.. it’s really not much different than last year… just a few new additions… it does make me happy! (see below for more photos)

against COLD

Maybe I have been overwhelmed with my life… I am not really sure! This holiday season stuff really freaks me out. but I can’t believe that it’s been more than a week since I blogged. Where have I been? What have I been doing? All good questions. All I can say is that I think […]

i {heart} mondays

There is something so comfortable and low maintenance about making breakfast for dinner.  It sounded good tonight… and since I hadn’t committed to a grocery store run since well before thanksgiving… I grabbed eggs and OJ and did the whole breakfast spread tonight for dinner: pancakes, bacon, cheesy scrambled eggs, hash browns and OJ. It […]

back to work

Back to work. LOVED my 4 days of off-ness. LOVED it.  I was the ultimate lazy. I didn’t do anything that I really had planned to do. and you know what, I am ok with that. I went to bed early and I was calm and I rested and I think that was exactly what […]
