My Life, Recently, in Photos

Last week I locked my keys in the car and was forced to bike to work. It’s approximately a mile and fortunately Kansas is very flat so it’s not a huge deal. After the chilly morning fog cleared, it was a really nice day, so although it isn’t the ideal situation, it turned out OK.

I’m glad that I didn’t have to bike to work this week. It’s much colder: meaning temperatures around freezing (plus or minus a few degrees). Overall, I’m thankful for the mild winter (very few below-freezing days) that reminds me more of my CA life (“winter” means 50 – 60 degrees and sunny). This week we got dumped on, but it didn’t stick around. I wonder how long my luck will hold out… crossing my fingers we make it to spring without a school-closing, road-condition-endangering blizzard (we had several last Jan/Feb/Mar.)

A few things that have perked up my days:

Used my gift card to get Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and added Bossypants (those arms still give me the willies) to upgrade to free super saver shipping. Both very funny.

Admiring my dishes. Wishing for a cabinet with glass doors (like this) or open shelving to show off.

A most delicious, healthy lunch. Amics roasted veggie wrap.

A new friend for the mantel. Target. $10.

Finally, a new purse! The faux leather on my gray purse was getting all flake-y and peel-y and all-around unsightly. This one’s from H&M that is big enough and chic enough to meet all my purse expectations. Oh, and gold accents are a must.
