The First Good Things.

1. Less than 24 hours until Notre Dame plays in the National Championship!!  Go Irish!

2.  Friends who know you take this stuff seriously and ensure you celebrate in style!

3. Childhood memories and a bestest friend in the whole wide world who helps remind you of them.

When we were in the 4th or 5th grade, a group of us girls made our own library.  We kept our index card box on our desks and checked out books at recess, etc.  Back before Kindles :) My best friend is home for the week and she brought this for me!  I love the date stamper the best I think.

4. Healthy food made for the week!  We made Winter Minestrone again (it was a hit!!) and a fabulous turkey chili.  So, so good.

5.  Lazy mornings.  I've certainly enjoyed them the past few days.  Oh, Monday morning, you are going to hurt. 

6. Tea.  I now have a tea stash too.  Fortunately it is much smaller than the yarn stash. 

7. Downton Abbey Season 3 started tonight!! It was lovely!!

And I enjoyed it properly :)  Sunday nights are going to be good for the next few weeks.

Back to work tomorrow.  But I can't complain about the goods things so far this year.

Happy Knitting!

You have seriously awesome friends! The tiaras are fantastic! I love the library kit too. Book plates are great, but the kit takes it up a whole notch.

Your healthy soups look really yummy. I thought I would share a recipe with you that my family really loves right now too. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tortellini-minestrone/detail.aspx

I think we'll be watching the game tonight. We listened to football on the radio on our drive yesterday. I prefer to see it. Good luck Irish(girlie) xoxo
And tonight will be a healthy veggie chilli night - the holidays have certainly tightened the waistband!

I have not found a tea that I actually like and could see myself drinking on a consistent basis. I've tried so many different kinds, hot, cold, flavored, boring...it all makes me ill (except chamomile, that was the only one I've liked). ::sigh::

I'm still upset the Badgers lost to Stanford. Husband owes his boss' boss some good Wisconsin cheese.
