Sappy Romantic Stuff

I hope everyone's Saturday is stellar!

*Sigh*...Wes never ceases to amaze me. Last night, he comes home from work with this in hands...

Please note: NOT red roses. I'm impressed that he remembered that I love lilies!

One happy girlfriend--Please note the new hair color. Not only did my pups get haircuts this week, but I got my hot mess of hair trimmed up, and colored up, too! It's a little flat in this pic because I just woke up from an hour-long nap.

The flowers were a total surprise, but it seemed a little strange because only a few hours earlier in the day, I saw this on my refrigerator:

I don't know how that little moth got into the apartment! I had to stop and do a double-take because it looked like someone had drawn a little heart on my fitness schedule--a sign maybe? Synchronicity? Coincidence?

Either way, this is why I love this man--he makes me smile.

It reminds me of the StoryPeople print I have hanging in my hallway that says:

"I used to wait for a sign, she said, before I did anything. Then one night I had a dream & an angel in black tights came to me & said, you can start any time now, & then I asked is this a sign? & the angel started laughing & I woke up. Now, I think the whole world is filled with signs, but if there's no laughter, I know they're not for me."
--"Waiting for Signs" by Brian Andreas

Wes makes me laugh and that's the only real "sign" I need that I'm with the right person :)

Awwww...I'm a total romantic sap at heart.

This morning after teaching PiYo, we went to my favorite brunch spot, Wild Berries. I can't even begin to describe the amazing breakfasts that they serve all day. Some of my favorite menu items include: Cinnamon Roll French Toast (made from real cinnamon rolls), Spinach and feta omelets the size of your head, Strawberry Cream Cheese and Granola-Stuffed French Toast, and Skillets full of eggs, veggies, and home fries---to name just a few.

A little fruit salad to start. I subbed fruit for the soup that came with my meal. In the summer, I just don't crave soup. Am I a weirdo or what?

Since I had been up since 6am (and it was noon) I decided veer away from my usual selections and try their lunch menu. I had the Veggie Wrap, which was full of romaine, tomatoes, olives, feta, onion and a yummy greek dressing. Some very UN-healthy, but tasty waffle fries on the side.

Wes was a champ and went for one of their "breakfast combos." This is Banana Bread French Toast (made from HOMEMADE BANANA BREAD) topped with bananas, pecans, powdered sugar and a side of cinnamon-sugar butter! This platter ain't no joke!

After lunch, we picked up our pottery from last week's "date."

Before firing:

Finished product:

It turned out better than I expected. I'm a little rusty on my pottery-painting skillzzz :)

Well, girls and boys, I'm off to the vineyard tonight (weather permitting) for a little music and vino (hey--wine is full of antioxidants that battle free-radicals in the body!). Hope the rest of your weekend is fab! Think positive--it's only half-started! :)


  1. I also love the plate! Also that place you ate at looks like they have the best bfast ever! Banana bread french toast sounds heavenly!

  2. Those flowers are very pretty and your hair looks great! [I was gonna get mine done for our trip but I didn't.] "Wild Berries" looks like a fab place to eat brunch...that fruit salad looks so fresh and tasty! Your plate looks cute {hope your mom likes it!}

  3. Aww! Too cute!!!! I can't remember the last time I got flowers brought home to me (bec I get things like cookies instead LOL). They are beautiful!
