February 22nd. I love it.

This week was absolutely insane. Too much to do but so much to love.

First up this week, having days off. I love it. Down here in New Orleans, we don’t get snow days, but we do get 2 days off to celebrate Mardi Gras. I didn’t leave my house to see parades, but I did lay in bed all day and watch movies. So good. Best staycation ever.

I love it.

Next up, House of Cards. I love it. With season 3 coming out next week, and since I’ve never watched it, Brian and I spent all day on Monday and Tuesday trying to catch up. We are only on episode 5 of season 2, but I am really getting into it. It’s so twisty and turny. It’s addicting.

I love it.

Finally, watching the Oscars. I love it. If you follow my blog, then you should know that I have been watching all of the movies nominated for best picture. Tonight is the night we find out the winner! I hope it’s Theory of Everything. But I think the best part of watching this year is Brian’s commentary. He knows I don’t like listening to the thank you speeches, so he talks really loud over the TV and sometimes throws in an original song.

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

February 15th. I love it.

Such a good week.

First up this week, snicker doodle coffee creamer. I love it. It might be the best thing for coffee ever. Add just a little bit and it’s like your eating a cookie. I mean, seriously. It’s safe to say I’m addicted to the stuff now. Thanks, Toll House!

I love it.

Next up, Valentine’s Day. I love it. This was my first Valentine’s Day that I actually had a valentine so it was pretty special. We started off the day with waffles, then we went to the Planetarium and Science Center in Kenner to see a laser show and play with cool stuff. The weather was great so we sat and watched the boats on the river, too. After watching “Air Bud Golden Reciever” we made marinara sauce from scratch which we used for our lasagna. Brian surprised me with roses and a lovely setup by my fireplace. He even got me a Pandora bracelet! What? He’s so sweet. And we capped off the night with my favorite: “Enchanted”.

I love it.

Finally, my birthday. I love it. Today I turned 25. How am I that old already? I can’t believe it! Today was great. All I wanted to do was sleep in and have a Star Wars marathon. That’s exactly what we did. I slept in til 8:30 but stayed in bed til 11am. Then Brian made me a bowl of fruit loops and we watched Star Wars. We capped off the day with sushi, a short visit from Jose and Diana and Lupita, and some Ho-Ho Pie that I made yesterday. Perfect day? I think so!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

February 8th. I love it.

What a week.

First up this week, homemade mac and cheese. I love it. In a constant attempt to make new things, this week I made homemade mac and cheese for the first time. 6 cups of cheese, 4 cups of milk, and 6 cups of pasta later, we had melted cheesy perfection. I may never go back to Kraft.

I love it.

Next up, 90’s movies. We’ve been on a bit of a 90’s kick lately thanks to Netflix. We watched Honey We Shrunk the Kids, The Big Green, Air Bud, and The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. There is nothing wrong with reliving the past.

I love it.

Finally, climbing trees. I love it. Today I had to work the tennis matches and so in an attempt to salvage my Sunday, Brian and I went to City Park and played catch. We also found this awesome tree to climb. It was leaning over a pond, but really big and easy to climb. I think I have a new favorite spot in City Park!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

February 1st. I love it.

Due to technical difficulties, I have to write this week’s entry on my phone, so please ignore any mistakes.

First up this week, having friends over. I love it. This week I invited Jose and Diana over for pizza and board games. It was so fun! We played Uno, ate pizza, and Diana brought this really good brownie banana thing. So good! Lupita also played Uno and she was very excited to see that my cards have Big Bang Theory characters on them.

I love it.

Next up, The Theory of Everything. I love it. Wow. Just wow. I absolutely loved this movie. Eddie Redmayne did an amazing job playing Stephen Hawking and I actually learned a lot about him because he doesn’t really talk about himself in any of his books. Now, in order of my most favorite to least favorite on the best picture category for the Oscars, Theory of Everything comes in at number one, Imitation Game is number 2, Boyhood and American Sniper come in at 3rd and 4th respectively. 4 more to see.

I love it.

Finally, cooking. I love it. Brian and I have been on a cooking spree the past two days. Yesterday we made chicken Parmesan, m&m cookies, and fresh salsa. Today we made tortilla chips which became nachos for the Super Bowl. We had plans to eat other things but we are way too full to even think about that right now. Maybe we’ll just make ice cream sandwiches later while we watch The Blacklist.

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.
