lucky girl

I'm pretty sure I'm the luckiest girl in the world. Why? Well, I have many things to be thankful for (wonderful family, amazing friends, a great career, etc.), but this particular feeling of luckiness is because I have the most thoughtful, caring boyfriend a girl could have.

Last week, I had a rough day at work and came home to a beautiful bouquet of flowers left on my doorstep along with a small bag of peanut m&ms - my fave.

He surprised me with breakfast Sunday morning - over easy eggs cooked to perfection and gooey cinnamon rolls. yum.

And then I woke up sick today and had to spend the day in bed. After work, he came by with tomato soup, crackers and grapefruit juice for me. All from Trader Joes - his least favorite store ever (and one of my favorite).

So, pretty lucky, don't you think? :)

fresh flowers

My roommate and I often have fresh cut flowers arranged throughout the house. Not only do they look pretty and inviting, but they just make me happy! And, you can always find some great deals at Trader Joes!

Here are some recent hydrangeas (one of my faves) that I had arranged:

And here are some carnations that my talented roommate put together:

friday night date

Dave and I went to dinner this past Friday night and decided to try out the new O.H.S.O Eatery and nanoBrewery on Indian School Rd. in the Arcadia area. We had both driven by it a million times and were quite curious to try the new place.

We had a great time sampling several beers and figuring out what we wanted to try. Although my meal didn't taste amazing, I enjoyed our appetizer and Dave's brisket sandwich. You can read my full review here.

Our little beer samplers. we each picked one to try - his choice won.
Too much fun
Afterwards, we rented The Help from Redbox. I LOVED the book but fell asleep during the first 15 minutes of the movie.
