Blue Valentine

Tuesday, February 13, 2018 3:30 AM

Happy Tuesday! 

Who says you need to wear pink and red for all Valentine festivities? 
This weekend the weather was super mild and I was able to wear this fun blue dress for a lovely lunch.

In honor of Valentines Day, here are 14 things I love (in no particular order)!

πŸ–€ Pink peonies. Fresh flowers are so beautiful and peonies are my favorite.

πŸ–€ My little boy.  I mean obviously this goes without saying, but almost everything he does brings a smile to my face. I am one lucky mama! 

πŸ–€ French fries.  Love really doesn't fully encompass my feelings towards fries, obsession is better suited. Real fries, none of this sweet potato BS. I actually had them served in cones as a passed
 hors d'oeuvre at my wedding.

πŸ–€ Friends reruns. One of my besties, Lindsay and I have a theory that every thing in life can somehow be related to a Friends episode.  Every time I hear 'With or Without you' by U2, I screen shot it and send it to her, because DUH, Ross and Rachel!  Every Thursday night we would convene in Lindsay's room drink wine and watch Friends.  It's our thing, we love it! 

πŸ–€ Black raspberry ice cream with chocolate sprinkles in a sugar cone, please!! 

πŸ–€ Summer, the ocean and sun. Everyone who reads this blog knows these three things are what make me the happiest. 

πŸ–€ My black leather jacket.  I have had quite a few, and I have been in love with all of them. They really are a part of my uniform. 

πŸ–€ Spring day light savings (March 11th this year), it should be a holiday! 

πŸ–€ Clue the movie. It is amazing and Madeline Kahn kills me! 

πŸ–€ My family.  We are all completely nutty but hysterical (if I do say so myself)

πŸ–€ Sappy rom /coms despite the fact I am the least romantic person ever! 

 Red velvet anything... seriously... anything.

πŸ–€  Romeo and Juliet the ballet. I have always loved the story, but some times I feel the words get in the way.  No better story to be told with just movement set to the most beautiful music by Prokofiev. 
If you have never seen it, do yourself a favor. 

πŸ–€ My fur baby, Chloe. At 13 she is still such a love bug... except if there is food around, then all bets are off and she will bite your face off. ;)

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day! 

xx, Elise
