"Feel the promise of a warm day"

Ah yes, wisdom from the good folks at Dove chocolate. Yum and hmmmm all in one delicious package.

It's cold and snowy outside, I'm fighting some sort of impending illness, but there's always a warmth inside that's been missing lately.

Some of the sources of warmth:

I haven't mentioned lately how wonderful my dog is -- is he not the cutest dog EVER?
Our first Christmas tree! Yep, after almost 7 years, we still wonderful have firsts together.
Our nearly-annual Avs/Blues game -- holy huge scoring batman!

8 more school days until two weeks of delicious, restful, and much needed break. I find myself longing for late-night crappy TV in bed in St. Louis and TMom's unbelievably perfect fruit-smothered waffles.

For now: Hubby-made Funfetti Brownies with vanilla ice cream and then bed warmed by one of the best Christmas gifts to date -- heated blanket. Once again, life is good.

The dippin dots were amazing! I've never seen so many goals. I've been to quite a few baseball games with lower scores. :)

Looks like you guys had a great time at the game and the tree looks GREAT! Are you guys driving to St. Louis? I hope that you have good weather for it this year.
