Random Musings

01. I cannot believe Whitney Houston died. She was my favorite growing up. Her CD was my first. I loved her music and I wanted to be her. The Bodyguard was a favorite movie of mine for a long time. So incredibly sad.

02. I enjoyed The Grammy's this year. Love The Beach Boys. And Taylor Swift. The Civil Wars. The tribute to Whitney by Jennifer Hudson was amazing.

03. You should seriously make this Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup. It was so flavorful!

04. It was a great weekend of relaxing, eating good food, sleeping in, dinner with fun friends, celebrating my brother's birthday with family, and an awesome church service. Good times.

05. I hate writing with pencils. Maybe that is why I hated math so much.

06. I think winter is finally here. I knew the 50 degree weather and lack of snow would end eventually, but I secretly wished it wouldn't.

07. One of my coworkers just got an Australian Shepherd puppy. I am obessed with this breed now.

08. They are very active dogs though that require a large yard. We do not have a very large yard, it is not fenced, and we both work full-time. Sadly, this is probably not the dog for us.

09. I cannot believe four years ago today Garth and I had our wedding rehearsal and dinner. Time flies!

10. Any big Valentine's Day plans? Garth and I usually get sushi from our favorite take-out place and have a low-key night.

11. We will go out for a nice romantic dinner later in the week on our anniversary (and after the Valentine rush is gone).

12. Happy Valentine's Day friends!

I wrote about being in shock about Whitney Houston yesterday. It doesn't feel real to me. I've listened to her my whole life it feels like it. Sad!

I LOVED the Civil Wars on the Grammys!

Happy Vday!
PS - did you watch the final reunion part 3 of RHOBH? :)

I grew up listening to WH so it's so crazy to think that she has passed away! And I'm with you....Australian Shepard puppies are adorable. My friend has one (she is 5 yrs old now) and she is a fun dog! So spunky!

that pup is so cute! but larger dogs definitely need some room to run & play! of course we have a crazy yellow lab with a fairly small yard & he does just fine...plus he gives us an excuse to take him for nightly walks during the warmer months!
