Finally Friday.

Self Medicate with Chocolate

All I can think about today is the fact that Monday is President’s Day. Which I have off for the first time since I started working. It’s going to be glorious. Christian and I are heading to Estes Park this afternoon for an annual retreat with our marriage class. Seems fitting to have it so close to Valentine’s Day – with all the focus on love. Also, Christian brought home a sampling of cupcakes this afternoon — which were delicious, hence the lack of photo evidence (the chocolate and vanilla were my favorite)!

When we get back, on Sunday, we’re heading to dinner with his parents and plan to spend Monday getting caught up on all those pesky things we’ve put off all week: cleaning, grocery store runs, laundry, sleep… should be a good one. Plus, Denver Restaurant week starts next weekend, you’ll find me ALL OVER THAT.

Here are few of my favorites from around the web this week:

Amy’s post on being authentic and tapping into the real you hit me so hard. I loved every single word and found myself nodding along through the entire read. It’s a must.

I eat breakfast cookies several mornings a month – they are so delicious and so easy. But, now, there’s a baked version, and I can’t wait to make a batch!

Just to even out the healthiness of a healthy baked breakfast cookie, I’ve been day-dreaming of this chocolate pudding recipe. Seems like something you could eat warm or cold and be equally happy either way. Yum.

I recently bought Photoshop Elements as a stepping stone into the Photoshop world. Here’s a great how-to for adding watermarks to all your online photos. Protect those photos!

The word art over at Daily Dihonesty had me cracking up (notice the photo at the top of the post). Go check it out, I promise you won’t be able to stop at just one page!

And, finally, because being healthy and staying up to date on all those pesky exams can actually save your life – go get a pap test. I know, I know… its awkward and weird and gross and nobody likes it, but its worth it. Just go.

    1. Absolutely! I love you posts — after reading I always get caught up in “everything” I want to say and then end up not hitting the post button. Must get better at that! Have a good weekend!

  1. It’s encouraging to hear people work on their marriage — classes, therapy, etc. It takes effort and re-investing. Anyway I’m new here. Thank you for letting me peek into your world.

    1. We figure its always a work in progress and that we want to take all the measures we can to make it successful! Plus, all the people in our class make it even more fun!

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
