Things to get through the gloom of January through March:

  • Five-year anniversary
  • Celebrating five-year anniversary with a little getaway
  • Vacation to Arizona with my mom to visit Nannie
  • Fresh flowers in the kitchen
  • Eating Arizona oranges picked from Nannie's tree
  • Receiving the oranges package I sent myself from Arizona
  • Keeping Christmas cards up on the pantry door
  • Beginning (and sticking to) an early-morning exercise routine
  • Play-dates with neighbors
  • Tax return checks
  • New kitchen table and chairs
  • Planning new colors for kitchen cabinets
  • Valentines Day
  • My birthday
  • Opening and wearing my cute red-orange raincoat
  • Spending lots of time with friends and family
  • Experimenting with new, yummy recipes
  • A new hair-do 
  • Easter
  • Spring fashion
  • Soaking up cooler temperatures before the Summer heat wave
  • Drinking a lot of Diet Coke

Markelle said...

love the list, but you missed play dates with sister in law...also thanks for rubbing in the whole oranges thing. I'm totally feeling the January gloom too.

Amy said...

Wait, did you say you were trying out new recipes??

Karin said...

A trip to Az? So glad you got to do that. Looking forward to pictures of it and of your new do.
Oh, and sorry, but Easter isn't until the END of April this year (what???)

Laurel said...

So I'm not the only one with Christmas cards still up, eh? And I LOVE that you mailed yourself a box of Nannie's oranges!!! I'm actually quite jealous. ;-) Love you!

Jessie said...

Sounds like you will make it through the winter gloom no problem.

And cheers to downing lots of diet cokes! :)

oh Alicia...I can count on you to cheer me up!!! January and February blowwwwwww!!! I have had to give myself a pep talk almost every day. Vegas (your Arizona) was a wonderful break and really helped...65 degrees does not suck, but now I'm having a hard time bouncing back! I need an Alicia fix, that will help! xo
