Monday Musings

Is it really Monday already?  I feel like this weekend was just WAY too short!  
We had a fun one though - we celebrated a belated Valentine's day, caught up on some of our favorite shows, went to a dinner party, and of course watched the Oscars last night!

Pics from the weekend:

A new decorative frame for the house - courtesy of Aubs and Matt (our recent house guests!)  I absolutely love it - it definitely helps us embrace our new state - still can't believe we live in Jersey - what?!

Ok - so for our Vday, we decided to make pizzas from scratch, which we have done before, but we LOVED this recipe!  We used this crust, and this sauce.
And then added fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, chorizo, and roasted red peppers.

....and the picture looks a little rough.  But I swear it was so yummy!!

John had a "beery" nice surprise waiting on him when he came home from work, too :)

I decorated the bottles with fun beer related phrases such as:
I love you "beery" much
"Ale" you need is love
Pale Ale for my favorite male
"Beer" my valentine
and "Ale" always love you.

It was a hit - it's beer, beer is always a hit ;)

John sent me off for a "me" day - I did a little shopping,
picked up these goodies...

Striped Peplum Top

Pave Stud Earrings

(and got a few Victoria's Secret unmentionables - that I won't mention)

.... and I got a luxurious pedicure!   Aren't they just the best!
I got Essie "Funny Girl" on my tootsies.

I caught up on one of my favorite shows - Smash!
Is anyone else in love with this show?  I think Katharine McPhee is just everything.

And before I go - a few of my own Oscar awards:
