I Heart You

Sorry for being MIA for the last few days. Sometimes life just gets in the way of being able to do fun things, like blog. Everything is fine here - just a lot of running around this week at lunchtime, which is typically when I come home and take pics if I don't have time in the morning before work.

So I have two days of Valentine's outfits for you. Two, two for the price of one. This first one is just full of girly pink lusciousness (hmm - sounded a little borderline porn there - well it is Valentine's Day). I just think this sweater from Old Navy is so cute and I wanted to wear a few shades of pink with it.

Tomorrow's outfit will be a little heart pattern mixing and more winter-esq as it's supposed to cool down here again. Unless I go with another option, which my friend is pushing me toward. We've been lucky with our 80 degree, sunny weather for the longest time. Makes for beautiful trips to the St. Pete Morning Market on Saturdays where I scoop up tasty organic broccoli, dried pasta, fresh-baked bread, and other goodies.

Once again, hubby and I are doing a Valentine's floor picnic. Over the years of dining out on V-Day, we've come to realize that it's just not worth the hassle. When we dine out, we like to enjoy our wine and the whole experience. That's hard to do when you are squeezed into makeshift tables while a stressed server shoves the prix fixe menu in your face and then exclaims, 'We've run out of such and such tonight.' We've had too many V-Day meals with steaks that were  disappointingly over cooked that we just gave up going anywhere on Feb. 14.

Instead, we're having cheese, salami, wine and then steaks from Bonefish Grill takeout. My sister introduced me to Bonefish's steak special, which is so tender and tastes like a fillet. I usually get the Gorgonzola butter on the side. No muss, no fuss. Sorry, CT, no Bonefish up there.

This past weekend hubby got a new toy - Roku. A small device that lets us stream TV shows and movies from Netflix, Hulu, and HBOGo. Not only can you stream them on the TV the device is hooked up to, you can also stream them on your iPhone or iPad. After being on the computer Sunday evening, I looked up and realized I had missed HBO's Girls.

So I streamed it on my phone before falling asleep. We signed up for Netflix and Hulu as Bright House cable just doesn't offer the same variety and quality of programs we were used to having in CT via AT&T Uverse (when you live in an apt. complex, you have to use the complex's cable company).

Hope you have a wonderful day and evening, little Valentines.
