Who says romance is dead?

Hello everyone! I'm so excited to be back. My project deadline has come and gone and I'm so thankful to get back to normal life - whatever that is! I can't believe how fast February has flown by. I know I haven't been posting but I've been reading your blogs to keep up with what's going on with all of you.

I really wanted my first post back to be better that my usual lame post awesome and meaningful so you'd hopefully not consider leaving me forever think about how glad you are that I'm back and how much you missed me. I tried, I really tried, but I feel compelled to tell you about something I saw yesterday.

I stopped at a gas station and while I was pumping my gas, I was discreetly watching this young guy and gal. They looked like they were in high school and since I'm fascinated with people's lives and I had on my big sunglasses which allow me to stalk stare to my heart's content, I was able to witness young love in action. They were so cute talking and laughing and I just smiled thinking about young love.

And then something happened that was totally beyond my comprehension.

This guy pulled a tin of dip out of his pocket, got some out and ya'll, if I'm lyin', I'm dyin' - this young, cute girl opened her mouth and let that boy put it in her mouth. I didn't know what to do. I wanted to yank her up by the arm and ask her why??? What are you thinking?? Don't you know how cute you are? You don't have to DIP for a guy!

It gets better. As they smile and hug on each other (with a lump sticking from below each of their bottom lips), he took that tin of dip and put it in her back pocket. A gift - no card needed.

I have a confession to make. This is really hard for me to say because I know there are many of you out there who will think I'm crazy or even unAmerican. But I have to say this - I hate the Olympics!!!

I just think they're boring and it makes me so mad that all my regular shows aren't coming on. Do you know what's not on right now and won't be on again next Tuesday because of the stinkin' Olympics?

So theres you have it. You now know my heart about the Olympics. I hope you still love me anyway.

Valentine's Day Already?

I got a call a few minutes ago from a friend who told me she wanted to verbalize a complaint. I thought I was in for some good gossip, but really she wanted to complain about me. What! A complaint about Moi??? She told me I better get a post up tonight and she would be checking before she went to bed.

Hmm, how could it possibly be over a week since I posted? This had to be the fastest week in the history of the world! It's like it was over before I even felt I really got started. Remember back in the day when summer seemed to last forever? Sigh...

It's been the craziest weekend here in Alabama. Friday we left work around 12 because it was SNOWING like nobody's business! It was so cold (I know, some of you northerners are just shaking your head right now) and beautiful!d As you can see, I was perfectly happy watching it from inside.

I have missed ya'll. My posts will be scarce for the next couple of weeks. I have a big project for work due by the end of the month so I'll be working like a maniac for the next couple of weeks.

I hope you all have had a great Valentine's Day. I loved waking up with my man and exchanging our love letters. My love wrote me a really good one. I'd share it with you but it's for my eyes only. (Silly grin on my face right now!) We went to Church and had lunch at our favorite Chinese place. Then we were super romantic and stopped by Target to pick up a few things. We've been relaxing all afternoon and all kinds of excited to watch The Amazing Race tonight. I know, I know... we are full of romance!

TGIF and a Giveaway Winner

I don't think there's ever been a Friday where I felt it was more appropriate to say T.G.I.F. I think work mentally drained my brain so much that all that's left is a mountain of noodles. And if that wasn't enough, I had to go buy groceries after work tonight - in the cold - in the rain.

I'm not sure if I've ever told you, but I HATE buying groceries. Before Publix blessedly came into my life, I was almost to the point that we were going to have to eat every meal out or go on Jenni Craig so they would deliver to the front door.

Normally, I would have left work, considered the cold and the rain and driven my rumpus right home. But alas, I had already spent a considerable amount of time on my list and my coupons and some of them were expiring today. (By the way, I saved $20 with my coupons!) By the time I was all done, I was exhausted and a little shaky from some serious hunger. Thankfully, this sweet little angel of a boy took my groceries to my car and unloaded them for me.

Unfortunately, there was no sweet angel of a hubby at home to unload them for me because I'm flying solo tonight. Jay went to some type of Mixed Martial Arts thing with some buddies. After I unloaded everything and put it away, I popped a Kashi pizza in the oven and put my jammies in the dryer for about 5 minutes so they would be nice and toasty when I put them on.

Now my belly's full, I'm warm and comfy in my jammies and ready to announce the winner of my Valentine's Giveaway! The winner of these beautiful bracelets from Bella Regali is....

Congratulations Stacy! Shoot me an email with your address and I'll get these out to you pronto!
