This week is flying, and guess what tomorrow is my Friday!  Sorry, I don't want to rub it in!  I took Friday off so that I could drive down to Omaha Nebraska for the weekend to see this little lady!
My sister!
Super excited.  We plan on doing some shopping, mani/pedis, a basketball game and of course some enjoying some great food!  But on a random side not I completely forgot to mention that yesterday was national peanut butter day!  I have no idea how I didn't know.  How could I miss an entire day dedicated to a food a could practically live on!

So today in honor of yesterdays National Peanut Butter Day (and because it is What I love Wednesday), I am loving Peanut Butter!
Ok lets be real I love peanut butter all the time!  
And I am pretty pumped and loving that this work week is almost over
and that I get to spend the weekend with my family!
Oh and this is another big one!  I am loving that in two short weeks I will be off to Columbus to see Mark!  We have lots to celebrate, 2 years and Valentines day!
Thats a lot of traveling!

11 things about Moi!
1- I generally lean towards blacks, navy's and neutrals when it comes to my clothing, and love the classic preppy look.  But this weekend when I went into Gap to look around I found myself drawn towards all the bright colors out right now!  This is shocking!  And yes my favorite article of clothing right now is my red pencil skirt!
2- My two favorite foods are salsa and peanut butter.  I know two polar opposite foods.  I am also strange and love dipping carrot chips into my salsa! 
3- I love anything red velvet.  Put a red velvet cupcakes with mile high cream cheese frosting in front of me and a happy girl you will get!
4- I am learning how to knit, and I have to say I cannot wait to get better.  I just need to keep working at it!
5- I am in love with my nook!  If I wasn't a zombie in the morning I would read on my little commute.  Is it sad that I sometimes find I read more blogs then I do books?  
6- I talked about ballet a lot in my post yesterday, Swan Lake is my favorite ballet.  It was the first professional ballet I saw at the age of three, and the ballet that made me want to start dancing in the first place.  
7- If I don't start my day off with a bowl of oatmeal (with peanut butter) and a good cup of coffee my morning just is not complete!  I am literally shocked at the fact that I used to hate breakfast, because now I look forward to my morning breakfast ritual (I guess you could call it that)! 
8- I have 3 tumores (don't worry no cancer).  This is a random/odd/interesting fact about me!  2 are bone tumors in my hand, and the other is a blood vessel tumor in the sole of my left foot.  I was born with all three and we are not sure why.  The foot tumor is the injury that made it hard to dance, and a reason I stopped.  And all the tumors are on the left side of my body... odd!
9- I wish that I followed the news more closely then I do. I read articles on New York Times and CNN but not nearly as much as I should.  That should have been a goal of mine for 2012!
10- One of the things on my bucket list is to go to New York and eat at the Peanut Butter and Co. Sandwich Shop.  Does this surprise anyone?
11- I have always wanted to learn how to make creme brulee, mainly because you get to use a blow torch to caramelize the sugar!

1-What is your favorite store?
Nordstroms, Jcrew, Banana Republic the list could go on and on
2-What is your most memorable vacation?

iphone!  That thing goes everywhere with me
5-If you could, is there a moment you would take back in time?
Honestly I cannot think of any off the top of my head.  But I am sure there are times I wish I wouldn't have said some things out of anger
6-What is your current obsession?
Statement necklaces, riding boots, leopard and my red pencil skirt
7-What as your first car... did you love or hate it?
2001 Chevy Cavalier (2 Door) it was a good starter car.  Much happier with my Jeep!
8-Did you ever picture yourself where you are now, 5 years ago?
I never pictured my life the way it is now!  Funny how things don't work out exactly how you plan them!
