As of late

Friday, February 22, 2013

It's 6p and I am just getting around to writing my "High Five for Friday" post. I guess it is still Friday...better late than never I always say. 
I actually never say that.

So instead of my traditional collage containing five fabulous things from the week, I'm going to use this post to highlight what my life has looked like lately. The good, the bad, and the carb loading.


You call to me. You are all I want lately. But, unfortunately, our love must come to an end. Even you, whole wheat bagel with light cream cheese. Four times in 8 days is just too much lovin'.


Warm, comforting caffeine. I'm taking it easy with decaf and tea, but that little touch of the wake-up juice is getting me through some long days and short nights. 

I had every intention of studying while Kiddo was in ski lessons. Honestly. But the internet was down so it simply couldn't be helped. Naturally, nachos and hard cider were in order.

I wanted to give a shout out to Mommy's furry little helper. I finally got around to assembling that new shelf and he didn't leave my side for a second. When I needed someone to sit on the directions? There. When a riveting game of soccer with the parts was in order? He didn't let me down. It took about a half hour longer than it should have, and I have Mr. V to thank for it. Such a giver, that one. I can never say no to that face.

The camera strap cover I ordered arrived yesterday! I love it! It is bright and cute and has so much more character than the standard black Nikon one. I have already lost a lens cap, so the two little pockets will be a lifesaver. You can find the same "Splendid Dot" slipcover, or choose from a ton of darling patterns, at The Poppy Shop. The quality is so good, I just had to give her a plug.

Happy Friday evening, folks! We have another Nor'easter heading our way, so whether or not I am willing to brave the blizzard for a day trip to Hartford, Connecticut is still up in the air. There is an huge science museum for Jared and an amazing sushi place we visit too infrequently. With my recent hankering for all things carbohydrate, I may be gracing Hartford with my presence despite a potentially unpleasant drive home tomorrow evening. Also, it will allow us to milk every second of Mario's mere 20 hours home before he flies off again.

We shall see...


  1. I love the strap cover!! I will have to get one. Mr. V looks like a great helper, our Fishy is the same way. :)

  2. All of those bagel pictures makes me want one!

    1. My current obsession with bagels is out of control! But delicious. :)
