Marvelous In My Monday [MIMM] 11.12.12

The weather the past 3 days has been a real treat, much more enjoyable than the blustery and cool weather that rolled in last week…  Today was no different, sunny and spring-like, I definitely wanted to take advantage of it and be outside!  My Monday was just as marvelous as my weekend!

Marvelous…  3-day weekends [whoop, whoop].

…and tomorrow is a holiday [in honor of Veteran’s Day today].  In the morning I’m meeting a girlfriend for a walk but I’m not sure what Ryan and I will do in the afternoon.  Peanut Butter Cereal Brownies sound enticing 😉  Hip, hip, hooray for 3-day weekends!

XOXO,

Allison

Question:  Do you have a 3-day weekend?

Question:  Are you a Bond fan?  I am all about chicky flicky movies but I also enjoy a good action movie [with cute actors] now and then!

WIAW 11.7.12 // Rain to Snow?!

I can’t believe that it’s already November 7th.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is in 15 days and Christmas is only in 48 days.

But what I reallyyy can’t believe is today’s forecast…  Rain to snow.  Really?!  Where did fall go?

I wholeheartedly am happy that Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner [I’m dreaming of all the holiday eats, treats, decorations, and celebrations], buttt I don’t think I’m ready for snow quite yet.

If I was still living in Boston I wouldn’t be so surprised, but I’m in Virginia [aka “the south” as most people call it], and I’d like another week or two of fall.

I’d like to continue enjoying the beautiful fall foliage, the reasonable temperatures, and all things pumpkin…

But that’s not looking very promising so I guess this weekend it’s time to unpack my boots with the fur and my puffy parka.

Stay warm y’all!  A bowl of tomato soup sounds perfect for dinner tonight, I hope it’ll warm me up from the inside out.

One of my girlfriends just teased me saying that it’s supposed to be in the 70’s today down in Texas…  I may have to start pushing Ryan to move more south 😉

XOXO,

Allison

P.S.  I probably should have used winter weather pictures to go along with today’s rant, but it’s Wednesday so I stuck with the traditional WIAW [What I Ate Wednesday] theme and used my food pictures to comfort me through this cold transition into winter…  Just go with it, haha!

Question:  Have you seen any snow yet this season?!  It’s not raining, nor snowing so I’m doubtful we’ll actually see anything today…

Question:  What’s the tastiest thing you’ve eaten recently?
