Sometimes Gracefully Gophers

Dreaming: of Spring with blooming pinks and purples.

Loving: this beautiful dress from Anthropologie.

Laughing: about the old man sitting in front of us at the game who had lots of trouble keeping his pants up whenever he left his seat.

Waiting: for my dinner date with Darebear tonight!

Reading: a French children’s book titled “Tyranno le terrible” and loving it. Cute dinosaurs make everything better.

Cooking: a whole lot of Lean Pockets. Maybe that doesn’t “count” as cooking…but they were on sale so I went a little “Lean Pocket” crazy and bought 10 boxes. Nothing says “romantic dinner at home” like a glass of wine and a Lean Pocket…

Praying: for patience. I could always use more patience.

Practicing: the bench press. So far, all I can lift is the 45 lbs bar. Hopefully that will change in the next few weeks! Bring it on, gym membership.

Listening: to Darrin’s description of what he has decided his PhD research will entail. That man is constantly impressing me, and the world of biomedical engineering should be excited about what these students are working to accomplish.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend! The phone picture above is from the University of Minnesota Gopher basketball game last night. The Gophers won! It was great! Our seats were right behind the bench, and the barn {the university’s name for the arena} was so loud. We loved every second of it!

This weekend, Darrin and I will be watching a lot of hockey and checking out the Olympic sized swimming pool at the university’s gym. It’s been too long since I’ve cannonballed into a large body of water. Also, I did a little “blog updating” and am excited about the three new tabs that I’ve added above! They simply list some of the beauty, hair, and fashion products that I’m currently loving! Feel free to check them out!

Have a great day! Thanks for reading! 🙂
