Happy Friday + a few insta-pics on the side

Hello and Happy Friday and February 1st. 
(I cannot believe it's already February)

What a busy & interesting week. The week began with freezing rain, snow, and a long commute. But the trees were beautiful all dressed in beautiful snow. 

The temperatures have been so cold recently in the Twin Cities that I have been keeping myself warm with layers, scarves, mittens, blankets and warm beverages. Thursday evening I had a Bucks date with a dear friend - their spicy vanilla latte is a must try!  

While going through a few old boxes from college I unearthed this dear green + gold mug. This mug brought warm and fuzzy memories to mind. The mug would mean nothing to anyone else but being a NDSU Alumni is such a happy thing to me and I had so many wonderful memories from my years there and have some of the best people in my life because of it. 
Once a Bison always a Bison.

You've Got Mail. What an oldie but goodie and one of my favorite movies. Every couple months I will pop the movie in and have it in the background or watch it sporadicly till I reach the end. My roommates often use to tease me about my sporadic movie watching, sometimes I just watch it for 10 minutes as I get ready or put away clothes, etc. 

I also *finally* receive my 2013 planner. It took me a long time to find a planner I loved that would work for me and be functional in the way I need it to function. This past year I had been using my iPhone calendar to track dates, appointments, etc but it reached the point where it just was not working for me and I wanted to open something up and dig into it and see my month/week/day. I am so excited to dig into this planner - and oh how true the words are ... '2013 a year filled with possibility'. 

ps. Please tell me I am not the only one who uses a non-digital planner still?

Well I'm off to enjoy the weekend full of friends, shopping, family and a super bowl party with tasty food! Have a wonderful weekend friends!


  1. Jim has converted me to using a calendar on my phone...but oh do I miss my beautiful color coded paper planner! :) I think about going back to it often...however, Jim can't sync his calendar with my paper calendar and its much easier to see our joint life on one....enjoy it while it lasts! :)

  2. You are definitely NOT alone! I've been using book planner's since...high school. And, I keep them too. I actually write so much in mine that it serves as a diary of sorts after the year is over. Whenever I wonder "when was that?" I look through my planners and find out. My phone calendars just do not work the same for me no matter how hard I try. But, I do love the one you got so now I'm wondering where you got it?? I have bought the same hot pink one the last two years from Barnes & Noble, and I wouldn't mind a new one. :)

  3. YOu've got Mail is my FAVORITE movie. I have it memorized so i ca pop it in and out all the time! I can totally relate :) yes.
