... & blue skies that make it all okay. That make you some how, (if you don't stare at the 6 ft of snow that covers your lawn) makes you forget what a "snowy" winter we've had. We are just 6 inches shy of making a record... and quite honestly, let's make that record, so all of this snow was done in vain.. ? Not sure what that meant.. but by golly I wanna say, years down the road.. "Ahh remember the winter of 2011 when we were buried in snow?"
So lately, Kai & I have been soaking up that sun (in my Northface Jacket!).. nonetheless, it is bright. And to top it off, the sun has been hanging out longer.. so long are the days of watching that sun set at 3pm! If it wasn't so "white" outside, I'd say I feel like Spring is around the corner.. (when I close my eyes). So while it's still bright out at 6pm, there is almost a hop in my step around the kitchen feeling that our longer days are here! (Then I shut the window, because it's damn cold)
The other day hubby surprised me by having lunch with me (although my entire day was shifted a bit.. I had planned to watch Las Vegas while folding laundry, usually what I do around 11-12.. shhh) and we headed to our fave, Snow City
*right here, I'm a bit to intrigued by the new iPad, I never thought I would need one, let me rephrase that, want one.. but I'm starting to think I would like one :)
I devoured my Eggs Benedict (and counted my calories after)
Speaking of counting my calories.. yes I do count them with the app, Lose It. I love that app, you can scan your food in as well, as long as it has a bar code, so you don't have to search for it. It makes me a lot more aware of my eating habits (weaknesses) and it pushes me to work out because the more calories you burn, the more I can eat :) I'm not necessarily trying to lose weight, just manage it. It's all about a healthy lifestyle :)
*I love this photo of him.. despite the nosy guy behind him.. :) LOL.. My hubby hates when I take photos of him, he's always makes funny faces but here I caught him as he was talking.
Sumethin' about this man.. that has got me thinking how lucky I am lately... I know he's super busy right now, he's in a class that takes up ALL his time but he always tries his best to make sure I'm happy. When he's in "study-mode" I try to steer clear and become more independent, but I do love his company.
And then there's this guy..
Love my little 4 legged baby.. There's something about him that seems to take all the troubles away. His carefree spirit, or just because everyday is a new beginning for him.. When I'm with him, I know everything will be alright. Although my heart has been heavy.. thinking when we do move, Hawaii has a stupid quarantine law! I know.. you all are tthinking, he's just a dog. Stop it right there.. cause he's not! He's my baby!!! And I just can't bear the thought of a 120 day quarantine for him!! So I am working hard to get all his bloodwork and shot records up to date so that he will only be looking at a 5 day quarantine. Still, 5 days is still too much for me.
Well, here's to Spring Break, it officially starts today in 15 minutes when the first kid rolls in :)
