Pretty Face, It’s A Beautiful Day

Okay, seriously! Have you checked out the newest Michael Bublé album? It’s fabulous! Of course being a fan since, I don’t know.. middle school, there was a great chance I’d fall in love with this one too. It’s A Beautiful Day is perfect for this sun shiny afternoon. I’ve got the windows open streaming sunlight in the house and it’s NOT snowing! What! I didn’t know blogging on a NON-snow day was even possible. I’m not complaining. I took a nice walk to Whole Foods and stocked up on dinner items for tonight! That’s another thing making this day so much better. Matt is finally done with busy season. So… it’s back to a normal dinner schedule, TOGETHER no less! What a thought! Tonight on the menu is Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken, fresh Papaya and a delish Greek Garbanzo salad. Mmm… now to start cookin’ it!

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

I’m Dreaming.

It’s happening. It’s snowing again. And I’m dreaming of a day when there’s no more snow and sunlight streams through my windows. I’m also dreaming of A Change of House. If you’re a follower on MY PINTEREST PAGE you know what’s been on my mind lately. My A Change of House board has gotten lots of attention. I’m dreaming of light colors, sunlight and little details that make the place. Feminine. Flirty. Whites. Neutrals. Cozy. Darling. I think I’ll share with you.

This Boy is Back.

Today is Tax Day. This, for an accountant, means from now on, Saturdays are the weekend again, 14 hour work days are in the past and life can be normal again. For me, the accountant’s wife, I’m looking forward to dinner together at a normal time, Saturday date days and not being completely exhausted on our only day together without work or school. Busy Season takes a toll, that’s for sure. But I am so proud of my amazing man for getting through it. It is not for the weak in spirit and he crushed it! He even started us on a new goal. A Matt Goal as I call them. Our new goal is one dessert, once a week. We like desserts. So, last night being the last day before our goal starts, we got frozen yogurt before midnight. One. Last. Dessert.

And today, I was craving a sweet snack. So, I made up a healthy one. It was a-mazing! Try this – Half a frozen Papaya smoothie box from Whole Foods or any frozen fruit. A half cup of plain Greek yogurt. Sprinkle a bit of Agave Nectar and Blend. Papaya Ice Cream – healthy and sooo delish!

Happy Monday, Friends!

Day at a Time

Snow.

Everyone said it would snow today. I even looked up the weather for the day. But when I stepped outside and see everything covered in snow, I was surprised.

Living in Georgia for so long makes snow days in Colorado magical. As a little kid we had snow in Washington State, but in Georgia, I think it flurried twice. Don’t get me wrong, those flurries were pretty magical too.

An actual snow day in Colorado, though, it’s a whole different story. It’s perfect and wonderful and freezing cold. My toes have never felt so cozy in a pair of UGGS. It’s incredible.

Oh how I miss the South everyday, but Colorado likes to suck up with a pretty snow day to try and change my mind. Can’t say it’s working, but I don’t hate Colorado.

Happy Beautiful Snow Day, Friends!

What to Wear

Snow Day in October

Blazer [similar] Sweater H&M [similar] Button Up [old] Skirt [American Apparel] Tights [H&M] Boots [similar]

The weather said it was suppose to snow Saturday morning, but when we woke up to go to work Friday morning, we stepped out the door to the beautiful white powder covering the trees, the grass and our cars. What a fun surprise! And to think, it’s the first week of October. Hope this isn’t a preview of the next few months. I’m still not used to snow storms, even if they are absolutely gorgeous!

So, for all my southern friends and family. Enjoy this little taste of snow. I can’t wait to show you more snow pictures in the coming months!

Happy Snow Day, friends!
