OMG! I can't believe this! I watch the Bachelor/Bachlorette every season . . . and have been following the spoilers on this website as since it started. With 2 weeks to go, he retracted who the final girl is! BIG NEWS . . . can you believe it?! LOL ;-)

Finally found a way to store the trash bags, ziplocs, foil, wax paper, etc . . . and I'm SO excited (whatever floats your boat, huh? LOL) Found this slide out thingy yesterday, and thought it would be PERFECT and it IS! Everything was just thrown under the sink and a MESS, and now it's organized! YEAH!

Got my annual review today at work (that's what will go in my scrapbook, so no picture today). I'm not "happy" with it . . . but I did get a raise, and I am still employed . . . so I got THAT goin' for me! LOL I didn't end up in tears today (like other's at work did with their review), but that's probably because I had been cryin' about it for the last 2 weeks! :)

Here's what my dinner was tonight. (banana under all those cheerios, and Chili ate some of it cuz I put too much in the bowl) Didn't have many points left after our auditors took us to Copeland's for lunch. Shrimp alfredo, crab cake, and cheesecake! arrgghhh . . . so good, but SO bad!

I haven't painted my nails in AGES! It's a kinda beige-ish-gray. I highly recommend the top coat . . . I had read the reviews, and it's as awesome as they said it was. Dries SUPER fast! It's called Seche Vite. (used the 3 bottles standing up, and the base coat with the purple top right in front)

Had a little retail therapy today . . . Ulta, Kohls, got my nails done, got my car washed, AND got groceries! Had to clean out my makeup drawer to make room for the new stuff, and cleaned out the drawer in the spare bathroom for my growing nail polish collection. (aren't those tiny bottles CUTE!?)

Anne, Brandon, and I went and celebrated the fact that the tax entries are DONE!! Haven't been to Chipotle in so long, and it was SO good! We discussed the fact that our punishment for screwing up this week, is going to be "quarterly hell weeks" instead of the "annual hell week" that we just finished. :(

After the day I had yesterday, today was a challenge. We finally got the final tax entries to accounting, and we are done! (still have some supporting schedules to prepare for the auditors). My husband sent me the BEST email today . . . it was so sweet, and unexpected, and TOTALLY made my day. I'm so thankful we found each other 4 years ago!
Tuesday was the worst day in my 16 year career as a corporate tax accountant. I didn't leave for home until 9pm, I literally cried all the way home, and then curled up in the fetal position in bed and didn't eat dinner. I made a formula error in our year end tax calculations that my boss didn't catch in her review, and we both wondered if we were going to be fired. She got chewed out for it today, but it's now over. It is what it is . . . at least I still have a job (for now).

Chick Flick Sunday . . . The Roommate at the theater (even had a coupon for free popcorn! woohoo) and Letters to Juliet from Netflix . . . and a pedicure in between! I needed the "me" time, and Robert enjoys being able to crank up the guitar while I'm gone.

I had SUCH a GREAT day today!! Robert and I did our "running around" today, and we haven't been able to do it in soooo long because of weather, or sickness, or work. It was beautiful outside, and I was lucky that my boss never called me to come into work. We went to the new Half Price Books in Mansfield (got a couple cookbooks that I've been wanting), then went thrift store "trolling" . . . found a couple of knick knacks, but really just enjoyed the company! Then got groceries, and cooked my sweetie an early Valentine's Day dinner. Also reorganized my kitchen (thus the picture), to make room for my George Foreman grill that I'm using a LOT. Also FINALLY made labels for my spice jars (been meaning to do that for YEARS!) After 2 REALLY bad days, it's nice to have such a great one to cancel them out! :)

OK . . I can't stand this weather anymore. I feel guilty for not making the 32 mile drive into work, I have to "try" to work from home without dial in access, and I have to work weekends for the rest of the YEAR to make up all the time I've lost (I don't have any vacation or sick time until July). I'm going to work tomorrow if I have to ICE SKATE in!!

This year Robert and I got our own Valentine's Day presents . . . I got a George Foreman G5 grill, and Robert got an Upper GI endoscopy! LOL We are SOO in love!! haha I've been shopping around for this grill for a couple weeks now, and I finally pulled the plug. Can't wait to use it tomorrow for the super bowl.

This weather is ridiculous! It was 76 this last weekend??! Had to work from home again today, and it's a PAIN! Can't get to the files I need, and we had a conference call with an auditor today that was SO confusing since my boss and I weren't in the same room.

My silly husband doesn't understand the concept of "snow day"! My work is closed till at least 10am, and I brought work home so that I don't have to brave the 30 miles to work. Luckily, Robert only works a mile away. It's not supposed to get above freezing till FRIDAY!
