{Okay, I'm Ready...}

I'm back to blogging. The first round of exams are finally over. I was successful for the most part & am ready to prepare for midterms {already, ah!}.
{Roses from Conor}
So, Valentine's Day. I hope that everyone had a lovely day, but most importantly, are we ready to move on to the warmer weather holidays? {Memorial Day perhaps? Flag Day?} We had a mini-blizzard this weekend and I am D O N E with winter. So done, I don't even know what I am. Overdone. Like a tough steak.
{Bottle #1 - Moet - & baked escargot}
For V-tine's Day I must say Conor did go all out - as he put it, "I know the way to my baby's heart...booze." That's right, I received not 1, not 2, but 3 lovely bottles of champagne. We made appetizers, watched CSI Miami {romantic, right?}, & drank lots of lovely bubbly.
It was perfect.

{Bloody Friday the 13th Cupcakes}
Not too eventful, but the night before we HAD gone all out for our friend Aaron's birthday. His Friday the 13th Birthday party, no less. I paid for the excessive celebration all day Saturday. It was worth it.

Now, off to class & catching up on blogs!

I totally agree with you about the weather! Yesterday, while my husband was at the gym, I openend all the windows in our condo (we live in Maine)and I thought he was going to kill me. I am trying to convince myself its not 23 degrees outside! I long for warmer weather and cute outfits!
