chocolate giveaway

Check out this pretty sweet chocolate contest!

To celebrate the new year, Vita Dolce Chocolates is giving one lucky chocolaholic  a free box of chocolates!!! Head over to "Happy Mouth, Sweet Life" blog & enter the giveaway!


Looks like I have a beverage theme going here! Actually today it's snowing and my kids school had early dismissal. I made sure to have fresh cinnamon muffins out of the oven and very large mugs of hot chocolate waiting for them when they arrived home. Snow days are so much fun, and so much fun to think back upon. Hoping my kids will feel nostalgic for these days when they experience snow days as parents.... Now to go snuggle up on the couch and watch dvds with my three snow bunnies... xo


First of the 365-project....!

worlds blur- a challenge

"Worlds Blur at First Light.
All is real and imagined.
fantastical and true"
Angie Warren has created a challenge tonight based on a quote from an Anthropolgie catalog (my favorite store, by the way). She has asked people to demonstrate in picture form what that quote may mean to them. I have chosen two pictures that immediately came to mind. The quote makes me think of childhood in it's innocent, dreamy & yes, fantastical ways...

projects & playlists...

Ok, so day 5 into 365-day project and haven't started yet... Probably not a good sign, at all. Determined not to throw in the towel I realized a 365-day project doesn't have to start January 1. Mine will start January 6th, 2011 and end January 6th, 2012. For no other reason than the fact that I totally slacked the first five days.... 

In the spirit of trying to blog more I thought I would share my current favorite gym playlist. The songs that are getting me through my workouts of the new year, which thankfully I have been better about completing than certain 365-projects....

1. Runaway- Kanye West (yes, the words are horrible, but something fun about toasting the d'bags on the elliptical)
2. Dog Day are Over- Florence and the Machine (I am not embarrassed to admit I actually have the Glee version as well & love it)
3. Coming Home- Diddy
4. Little Lion Man- Mumford & Sons
5. We R Who We R- Kesha
6. Radioactive- Kings of Leon
7. Forget You- still not embarrassed to admit I dig the Glee version
8. Modern Man- Arcade Fire
9. Magic- B.O.B
10. The Fixer- Pearl Jam
11. You Got Yr Cherry Bomb- Spoon
12. A-Punk- Vampire Weekend
