Wine and Love

It's been awhile since I last participated in Nora's Wine and Love. What better way to start off the first week of 2012? I'll tell you what made me need the glass of wine this week and what I loved. Feel free to play along too in the comments :)



1. Um, going back to work? Need I say more. It's been REALLY dark in the morning.

2. Cold. It was 7 degrees this morning on my way to work. Dislike.

3. Shutterfly sold me a calendar in November of 2011 for 2011... didn't realize this til yesterday because I gave it to Eric's mom for Christmas. REALLY SHUTTERFLY? Who wants a calendar for that year in NOVEMBER? Yes... being a detail person would be useful sometimes.

4. I have this thing where I like to get the super busyness over early in the week and just go to work and relax Thursday and Friday. That didn't happen this week because I have class today and tutoring tomorrow morning. Wah.

Clearly this week was pretty good overall though, as these are all minor complaints!


1. Friends. This week I got to see Tiff for coffee/tea on Monday and Katie for pre-quilting class (hers, to clarify) dinner. I love when I get to see friends in the middle of the work week, though technically Monday was not a work day.

2. Yoga. I started towards my goal of 4 yoga classes this month by going to a class. It was awesome for a couple of reasons. #1- Caroline went with me! She was back in Boston mid-week and I got to benefit! #2- It was warm. See wines. #3- It was a class to music and the music was actually good, all Michael Jackson! I'm not a crazy fan of Michael Jackson but I enjoyed the Jackson Five and Michael mix as it was better than the weird yoga music they usually play :)

3. Reading. I told you I'm obsessed with reading lately? I finished Saving CeeCee Honeycutt last night and absolutely loved it. I just started Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, recommended by Lisa. I wish I could just hang out and read all day. Is that a choice?

4. Fine, the kiddos were pretty cute this week. I do love them. Really. I just wish I could teach them maybe... 2-3 hours per day? and then have the rest of the day to do whatever I want. Three day weekends wouldn't be bad either. Too much to ask?

What is your wine and love this week?


  1. Wow you are totally going to hit your reading goal!! Way to go!

    Wine: I slept terribly last night. We got in late (11ish) and I knew I had to get up at 5:30 and I think knowing how little sleep I was going to get even if I fell asleep immediately messed with me. :(

    Love: I have very little planned this weekend. Just a lunch with girlfriends on sat.. I love unplanned weekends :)

  2. 2011 in NOvember? Yikes. You got ripped off. I'd return it pronto!
    My wine this week is that our cabinets are STILL not finished! UGh.
    My Love is that I've laughed a lot this week. That's always a good thing :)

  3. Umm hello Shutterfly! Why were they even selling those? I totally feel your going back to work wine! A part time gig would be perfect...oh and I would be able to make my own hours!

  4. Yeah I'd definitely talk to Shutterfly about that one. Is mom's the same way? Haha cause I definitely wouldn't have noticed..

    I'm glad we got to yoga yesterday, yay!

  5. I just requested the book you read from the library - I hope it comes in soon! I love good book recommendations!

  6. I regularly daydream about staying home and reading all day. Then on days when I actually could do that, I don't! lol. I still daydream though!

    Wasn't CeeCee good? I just loved her!

  7. Nice job on the reading. You will hit your goal for sure! I will have to check that one out! I am reading Secret Daughter right now (also recommended by Lisa who I think was recommended to read it by you!) and LOVE it. It's one of those books I'm slowing down on reading because I don't want to finish it it's so good!

    Wine: I slept in 1.5 (!!!) hours after my alarm went off this morning!!! Luckily it was set early for a workout so I was only 15 mins late for work ;)

  8. Yay for Yoga! I too went to a Yoga class last night. Back in the saddle... uh... Downward Dog! :)
