Roses and Thorns

My favorite part of weekly meetings when I was a collegiate Alpha Gam was at the end of the meeting when we did Roses and Thorns. I just loved the tradition of it, so I have decided I simply have to follow along with K. Law in her weekly Roses and Thorns! We may not have been part of the same sorority, but I know if we had been we would have been fabulous sisters!

 This week couldn't be better.  I love waking up this beautiful Friday morning with the sun shining, and not have to head off to an airport to get on a plane!
 Roses to getting to brew my own coffee here at home, and drink out of my favorite mug! I can't tell you how nice it is to NOT drink out of paper and Styrofoam...
  Roses to my furbabies! They are so sweet and uber-cuddly this week. I have loved it every second, even if I was occasionally annoyed....

Roses to watching the Price is Right this morning and seeing the stage blackout with no lights, and then catch on fire!!! It may have been Thorns for them... but it was entertaining.... and then... APRIL FOOLS!!!!...hahaha, I guess Drew Carrey did bring a bit to the shot...

Roses to new artwork hanging in my office! Spencer bought me the top 2 prints for Valentines Day 2010 and I JUST got them hung. I absolutely adore them and they are in cool shiny hematite-style frames! The bottom piece is painted by Spencer! He made it for an art show, and I have stolen it to hang in my office. It's about 2 ft by 3 ft and I simply love it! Betty is such a great model, huh?

Roses to warm-fuzzy emails from my boss telling the team how much she appreciates us. What a fabulous way to start my friday!

Roses to the warm-er weather today. Our flowers started blooming last week, and I am excited to get out there and clean out the flowerbeds. I believe I will need to get some new pretty mulch too so we have that pretty fresh spring color!

Roses to dinner out with friends tonight! I don't know where we will go, but I know it will be fun! Can't wait to see them!!!!
Thorns to allergies! I have gone through so many of these little tissues this week it's ridiculous! I am so full of sniffles it's ridiculous

Thorns to not having motivation.... I am in a rut, and need a workout buddy to push me back to the doors of  24 hour fitness..... hmmmmm maybe i'll force myself tomorrow....today my workout should be gardening....


Thorns to getting the wrong Chinese last night and having to wait for them to deliver the right meal. Shrimp with veggies from out local place...not so good.... chicken with vegetables...DELICIOUS! (But Roses that they did bring it to me!)

Thorns to our overly energetic Mia waking us up sooo many times last night... well, waking-up Spencer... I'm a deep sleeper....

I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday!!!

Oh, so sorry you have allergies. I do too but so far I'm doing fine. Let's hope it stays this way. :)
