A true chocoholic

It's official.  I am a chocoholic.

It has certainly never been a secret that I love sweets, but I am finally beginning to understand the depth of my addiction thanks to these bad boys.  I LOVE Cadbury mini-eggs.  More than anything else (even chocolate covered almonds), I can't stop eating them once I start.  In fact, I am given bags by friends every year who see them and "think of me."  That tells you how often I talk about them. :) So you can imagine my glee when my sister-in-law, Christine, sent me the link for those cookies last Saturday.  I made them Sunday . . . they were gone by Tuesday.

They say the sign of an alcoholic is drinking before noon.  What does it make me if literally one of the first things I think about when I wake up in the morning is where to find my first treat?  I start WAYYYYY before noon, I assure you.

Two birthdays!

I was going to title this post "Our birthday bashes," but neither of us really had much of a "bash" this year.  Both of our birthdays were pretty laid back.

 Sam turned 27!

 Sam is lucky because he had a little cutie to celebrate with this year (and doesn't the little guy look just thrilled?)


My birthday was marked by a momentous occasion--Sam made a cake!  All by himself. :)  And I have to admit, it was DANG good.  I am sucker for funfetti.

I live here

I have these moments when I look around and think, "Oh my gosh.  I live here!  People pay tons of money to come visit for a week, and I get to live here!"

To celebrate Valentines this year, Sam blindfolded me and drove me out to Coronado.  We went on a fun bike ride, walked along the beach, and had breakfast at an adorable French cafe.  It was 75 degrees on February 15th!  Isn't this gorgeous?

All of the houses on Coronado are adorable.  I want to live there someday. 

 I will never get sick of living near the beach.

Overlooking downtown from the island (the lighting isn't great, but you get the idea)

That's right . . . I live here. :)
