It's been over a month since my last post -- and its nearly the end of February already! I need to get on the boat here with regular updates.
The weather is much, much nicer around these parts, which has been completely lovely. I know that it has the ability to change at any given moment, so I am just enjoying the sunshine and soaking up the rays as much as I can. It was a little chillier today than it has been the past few days, but the sun was still out!
Our first Valentine's Day as Mr. & Mrs. was nice. The husband did very well, and had two dozen assorted roses sent to me at work :) It was a great surprise, and he knew how much I always wanted to have flowers delivered to me at work. lol. Everyone was complimenting them whenever they walked past my desk! We also enjoyed a nice italian dinner that evening. For my part, I made him a cookie bouquet and got him an itune's giftcard. Nothing fancy, but the whole point of the holiday is to show the people you love, how much you care about them -- right? In all honesty though, Ryan does a great job at that every day. Even if its just the smallest gesture, he truly does do a great job at making me feel special and loved <3.
In less than two weeks, we'll be flying out to San Diego & Arizona for a few days. I am SO looking forward to this trip! We're calling it our "mini-moon" since we haven't taken a real honeymoon yet. We are still planning on going, but probably a little later this year. However, our trip out west should be a good time and a nice little getaway. I'll get to see where my hubby hails from, and where he spent the majority of his childhood :) According to him, Yuma is a terrible place -- but I need to experience it myself! Not to mention, there are several In-N-Out Burger's ;)
I truly enjoy Sundays. I feel most like a "housewife" on this day (not that I aspire to be a housewife!) because I do domesticated things like catching up on the laundry, cleaning up around the house and cooking a nice, homecooked meal. I try to cook every night, but when I'm getting home from work after 6:30p five nights a week, its tough to be "fancy" So, I typically use weekend nights to make the good, time consuming stuff. Plus, I think Ryan appreciates it after coming off of 12 hour shifts every weekend. lol. Tonight, I have homemade spaghetti sauce with both sausage meatballs and beef meatballs simmering on the stove. It smells absolutely delicious. Plus, we have some fresh foccacia bread on the side. I can't wait for him to get home so we can dig in!
I spoke too soon about the gorgeous weather -- in the time it took me to start typing this post, it started SNOWING. Can I get a giant W.T.F and a thumbs down??
