Along with a thoughtful and sweet poem, the box contained all of my favorite things: lipgloss (THAT I LOVE) in a subtle enough color that I will wear it, my favorite mints, delicious tea, 100-calorie packs in the sweet AND salty variety, my favorite nail polish, a beautifully smelling candle, a new kind of facewash, a manicure set including my all-time favorite color and kind of polish.
I don't even know what to say about this - the whole box made me feel so loved. Kelly and Jen clearly put so much time, energy and thought in to this (plus the actual cost!) and I feel so loved. I am so lucky to have them in my life - everyone should be so lucky as to have people in their life like this.

We started at a fabulous sushi restaraunt downtown, Oysy.

We set our wedding date on October 3, 2009.
At that time, there were something like 575 days until May 28th... and as of today, there is only 100!
The countdown is on, and I couldn't be more excited.
(Luckily for me, one of my favorite people shares the sentiment).

I think that's what love's about, no? Knowing exactly what dessert-y thing I wanted to eat and making it for me for after boot camp?

Disregard that, please.
I'll be cheering for the Packers today, and though I've received some gentle encouragement from my favorite anonymous commenter, I have Donald Driver to thank.

Last night, while walking back to my apartment from "Beach Body Emergency Boot Camp" (more on that later), Scott and I stumbled upon a live taping of a segment on the Weather Channel. While it was too cold and windy to stick around and watch, it was amusing enough to merit a blurry camera phone picture.
My friend's Facebook status updates have been equally amusing."Snow/ice/blizzard day in STL!"
"Kids aren't even here yet and we've announced an early dismissal! I'll take it!"
"Too many names to call our first winter storm of the decade. So far I've heard Snow-pocolypse, Snow-mageddon, Snow-nami, Flurricane and Snow-valanche".
"Bring it, snow!"
And these are just comments from the past two hours.
I understand that two feet of snow is a LOT of snow, and they are anticipating that it is going to fall fast (the NBC newscaster suggested a rate of up to three inches per hour).
We've had a pretty mild winter so far, no? And it is Chicago in February, so like... this kind of goes with the territory. (Although I will concede that 24 hours is a bit excessive).
Anyway, I hope Chicagoans (and anyone impacted by the upcoming weather system) take advantage of this kind of warning and use extra caution in the coming days.
