Act 3, Scene 5: Valentine’s Day

Our Valentine’s Day was low-key and lovely. From the tacky box of chocolates I gave Joey, to making a mess in the kitchen together…

(Nothing says I Love You like onion breath)

The four-legged ones got a special Valentine’s treat of course. Riggo’s tail was going at least 60 wags-per-second, and Moose got so excited he sat on his toy. Frosty Paws will do that to a dog.

Talk about love…

As for my Valentine’s Day card, lets just say Joey didn’t realize it opened up to a third panel…

Whoops. It’s a keeper.

And the mother-load…

You better believe we took a bite out of each piece. Some traditions are worth keeping!

Hope your V-day was filled with Love 🙂


Dear Pretzel M&M’s, I Love You

First off, I think the M&M commercials are always very clever, but that’s not why I love the new Pretzel M&M’s. Here it is in a nutshell (or chocolate coated shell, whichever you prefer): I was craving something sweet after lunch today, but I’m trying to be good and fight the urge. But then I gave in. I said to myself, “Myself, lets just go grab a bag of Raisinetsdark chocolate & raisins, that means antioxidants and kinda-fruit so it’s not a total waste of calories.” I stroll over to the gift-shop (I work in a hospital, the gift-shop is where it’s at people) and I check out the Raisinets – 190 calories in the bag. Not too bad. I’ll burn that off in spin class. But then the Pretzel M&M’s bag catches my eye – and guess what – ONLY 150 CALORIES in the bag. Salty, sweet AND 40 less calories than my original choice. BINGO. We had a winner. Best part is that they were delicious, totally hit the spot, at I didn’t feel guilty because I’ll burn it off 5 times over in spin tonight!

They should hire me as a spokesperson.
