i love a great book. this month's book is the book thief. i have heard such wonderful things about it, but after reading the summary, i'm not so sure. i really hope i like it. i'm desperate for a book i don't want to put down.

sugar cookies. they scream valentine's to me. i don't make them over the holidays, but you better believe i make them every february.

enya. i could listen to her at any time throughout the year. her music is inspiring and invigorating.

mac & cheese. the character kind. i had to save the best for last.

I haven't been blogging lately, so I missed the news that you're expecting. Congrats!! Very exciting news.

On a much, much less important note...mac n cheese is my fave. Yum!

I AGREE! I have to have things-to-look-forward-to/projects-to-do in Jan/Feb/Mar. (Definitely my least favorite months of the year.) And I love mac&cheese too. Tyler thought I was so gross for eating it when we first were married... but now he understands. :) Have you read The Help by Kathryn Stockett? I seriously couldn't put it down. Loved it.

YAY for a little BOY!!!!! Oh how I love the baby boys :) I'm so happy. So over the moon that things are still going well.

I'm with ya on "The Book Theif". I've heard it's awesome too but then last night my sister told me it's about the holocaust and i was a bit disapointed. I get so depressed reading holocaust books. But I'm giving it a try.

The concert for Tannnon's b-day looked way fun.

miss you :)

"The Book Thief" is a great book, but in a learning and life altering kind of way. It's a tough read, but you won't ever regret it.
I love how beautiful your cookies look. And FYI- Mac and Cheese grosses me out, especially the character kind- it may be something about cleaning it up after its been half eaten. :-)
We are cheering for a boy. Can't wait to hear.
