MM: April 3

Hello again, happy Monday and happy April!  I didn’t take many pictures last week; I’ve been dealing with some crappy allergies with all this rain we’ve been having lately.

Last Monday was Jasper’s 8th birthday!! He was thrilled to take a picture with me, as always.

After running 10 miles last Sunday, my legs (specifically my knee) were pretty wrecked, so I did a nice 30 minute cycle class. They were definitely feeling fatigued, but better after cycle.

I had this hilarious text convo with Dad last week.

I also played around a little with flowers for my wedding, and came up with this combo, below. I’m pretty thrilled with how well it turned out!  Just over 7 months to go!  theknot.com/us/finallystefani

I found Jazzy’s old tie, and he wore it for a solid 60 seconds yesterday, before pretty much collapsing from the effort of looking so dapper.

Chris made some amazing brats last night, which was perfect on Opening Day.

Not too much else is going on in my world.  Rock the Parkway is this Saturday!  Have a good week!!

Thursday Thoughts: February 19

Over the last weekend, James and I celebrated Valentine’s Day, and our 11th year together.  I forgot to post this picture, it’s from dinner at The Well, I was presented a rose when we walked in the door.  It was a nice touch by the restaurant.

Also over the weekend, we found this most amazing little pet tie for Jasper.  He wasn’t too sure at first, but once treats were introduced, he wore it like a little gentleman.  Jasper is officially the most dapper cat ever.

James and I have been wanting to watch Sherlock for a while now, and finally sat down and watched the first 3 episodes (season 1) this week.  To say we love it is an understatement.  We both like Sherlock Holmes stories, though I think James has more history with the stories.  Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are a great team, and we can’t wait to watch the 2nd and 3rd seasons – each season is only 3 episodes, but the episode are about an hour and a half long.  It really feels like a series of movies more than a British TV show.  It’s on Netflix, so if you haven’t watched it and like Sherlock Holmes stories, Benedict Cumberbatch, or british accents, you should really drop what you’re doing and watch it now.  You can thank me later.

I found these little gems at Target the other day.  I love bel Vita breakfast biscuits, and usually have them for breakfast most days on my way to work.  These are itty bitty baby bite sized biscuits.  I found the mixed berry and the chocolate bites, and they are both pretty tasty.

I am finally feeling better, after battling bronchitis for over 10 days.  I still have a bit of a lingering cough, especially after I run and when I wake up, but I feel tons better than I did last week.

Tomorrow, if the weather holds out, James and I will go home for the weekend to see our parents and grandparents.  We haven’t been home since Christmas.  It’s hard to believe that Christmas was already 2 months ago.  I’m excited to get a hug from Mom and Dad, to drink a snowball, and to meet Mom and Dad’s new little fur baby, Gordon.

Have you seen Sherlock?  What other “must see” shows should we add to our list?
