Tuesday Treasure Trove


Things of Note:

So, the Superbowl thing happened. We sort of watched it (neither me nor the boy are big into football, but you know… excuse for football junk food). And was it just me or were the commercials more sentimental than usual, outweighing the funny ones? I damn near cried at the Clydesdale commercial. Also, all the jokes on Twitter about the blackout had me rolling. That kind of thing is why I love Twitter. 😀

This week it’s business as usual. Next week, much to my dismay, Ian has his late shift week. Yup. Valentine’s Day evening will be spent solo for this girl. Whomp whomp. We had already planned on doing Vday stuff on the weekend instead, but still. And those weekend plans are yet to be determined. Ian is pretty much leaving it up to me because, as he says, Valentine’s Day is really for girls anyway. Who said romance is dead? Le sigh. But he did snap up the Groupon for The Emerald Restaurant, so we’ll be doing that awesomeness sometime in the next few months (they are notoriously booked up around Vday).

Also, shopping ban is a go, and I’m staying strong so far. Amber & I are keeping each other on track and accountable.

How’s your week going so far?
