tick tock ... tick tock ...

i LOVE having paid time off.

because on a day like today, when i found out ...
that my best(est) friend evah ... and her husband ... and her (almost) one-year old daughter ... are coming into town (yay!) for her cousin's funeral (boo-hoo.) ...

and they are staying with me ... oops ... i mean, us ...

i was able to sneak out of work two hours early to come home and write this blog post ... oops ... i mean, clean ...

all before picking up the girly-girls ...


and i'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to someone that we haven't seen in quite some time around here ... everyone please welcome ...

SUNSHINE! and her faithful companion ... BLUE SKIES!

we are ALL very excited to see them ... (and here is where i attempt to make this a cohesive post) ... all of them (our friends AND the sun).

next up ... green grass. everything outside has been a wee bit too ugly to take pictures of ... i CANNOT wait for it to green up a little around here.

(this post is being submitted as an attempt to actually complete a spin cycle again around here ... confused? head on over to see spriteskeeper. she will make it all so much clearer. i promise.)

Gorgeous picture!
I hear you on the time. Nice to have a little bit to yourself before you rush out again. Enjoy that sunshine and you're linked!

Um, it totally snowed here today. But according to Utah's license plates, it's the greatest snow on earth.

That blue sky picture is beautiful and so is the puppy. Glad to hear you're seeing nicer weather, enjoy your visit!

It was lovely here today too! Gawd, it's been a long winter.

I dream of having a little bit of time to myself during the day. Of course I then promptly feel guilty for wasting a second of time with MY girly-girls.

By the way, your "our family" picture? If you subtract the dog and replace the names, including substituting Abby, Bailey and Lily for Jazz, Rain, and Jet, I could easily borrow that picture. I like that.
