Hiya! Hope you all had a very happy Monday and enjoyed an extended weekend if you had the day off. Normal, full day of work for me, plus, some exciting things!!1) We have exactly 2 months to go until the first day of Spring -- March 20th -- if there were ever a day to mark a Spring Countdown -- today would be the day! Absolutely gorgeous, sunny and a oh so lovely 65 degrees. Ahhh This of course was just a teaser considering the temps are only going to continue to drop as the week moves on. All good tho.... 2) Thursday. I'm off to London!! yesssss. I can't tell you how over the moon excited I am for this trip! London has been on my list for quite some time and I can't tell you how ecstatic I am to get there! Going to be amazing. 3) Came home this afternoon to a package -- ordered some cool, new accessories online and they were delivered today! yayyye I was afraid this wasn't going to arrive in time to enjoy on my trip, but I got lucky! Will do a post to share my new loot with you.

About that Spring Countdown....

Last minute dinner out at Ilios Noche. Had a big Country Greek Salad -- cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, subbed out feta for goat cheese, added arugala and blackened salmon + 1 glass of pinot noir. Came home and ate 2 pieces of dark chocolate. yumm :))
