This girl is on Fire!!

T-swizzle recently partnered with American Greetings to create 12 greeting cards that "not only reflect and demonstrate her personality, but bring her stories and words to life," according to the company. The girly cards are decorated with glitter and butterflies, and offer a less traditional style of salutation. See for yourself!

Happy Monday!

And Happy Presidents Day! Are you lucky enough to have the day off?
I hope your Valentines Day was full of LOVE -- love for spouses, siblings, children, parents, pets and peanut butter!

What did you do this weekend? We had a French brunch & visited the zoo. (A zoo in the middle of the city amazes me.) The conservatory was so warm & smelled fresh. It made us feel like we were in Puerto Rico if only for a moment...

Are you watching the Olympics? If no, why not??
These folks are mega-crazy talented!

Some things for you to start the week:

Didn't have a Valentine this year? Start practicing for next year!

Colorful kisses

The Olympic gold is very green!

I made Berry Clafouti this weekend for a dinner party, it was a hit! And so easy, whew.

Babysitters Club makes a return! (I always wanted to be Stacy)

Every mother deserves photos this beautiful with her children

St. Patricks Day will be here before you know it, aren't these pretty?

Jillian & Ed Engagement Photos!

Are you as excited as me??

My 1st season watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette was the Jason show in 2009. (I know, I'm waaay behind.) I liked it but I absolutely became addicted when Jillian became the Bachelorette. From the very beginning I just knew Ed was the one for her! How exciting when she moved to Chicago & I'm still hoping to just casually bump into her one day & ask for a couples night. A girl can dream...

Until then - Enjoy!

Chicago had an earthquake today!

Luckily it was mild & no injuries or damage reported.

It registered a 3.8 magnitude at 4:00am & no I didn't feel it. The one in April 2008 registered 5.2 & I barely felt that one.

In contrast, the earthquake that hit Haiti on January registered 7.0 on the Richter Scale, meaning it was about 1,600 times the magnitude of the one this morning.
