Happy Monday!

Bonjour, my darlings! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was superb, albeit tres tres short, and so the need of a Happy Monday list today is VITAL!

1. SHAKE YOUR BOOTIES - After a week of sunny, breezy 70-degree weather, I woke up this morning (at 4 a.m.!) to tres dark skies and a show-stopping Texas thunderstorm. After another few hours of sleep, i woke up to the same. Instead of cursing the erratic TX skies, I happily obliged by pulling out black tights, a yummy blazer, and these fantastic Tory Burch booties I scored at the GILT sale many MANY months ago (aka before le budget!).

2. I HEART LEOPARD - This weekend my dear ami Matty, horrified at the state of my current macbook (circa 2007 with the old school Tiger),upgraded me to the all-new Leopard. That plus the new 2 GB of RAM we installed on Saturday = a brand new laptop for moi! (Also I DL-ed the new Google Chrome which is Ah-mazing and have the Tory Burch theme - how appropo!)

3. RUNNING 101 - SO GOOD! Although I'm debating whether or not to go today seeing as the forecast is 50 degrees and rainy. I don't want to get sick yo!

4. ROAD TRIP - This weekend i'm going to visit my parents - yay! Have not seen Momma Park since our trip to Vancouver, and i'm missing her masses.

5. CRAFTY SURPRISE - I'm participating in the first ever PaPaYarrific Creative Challenge (along with darling Kaileen Elise!), and as such, needed the perfect gift to wrap. I decided to make Ma Soeur a delicious homemade surprise and will reveal after my trip to Cali (in just a few weeks!). Let's just say it involved a trip to Hobby Lobby and lots of cutting/pasting/trimming/chaining/sparkling/etc.

What's making you extra happy this Monday?

I woke up early this morning and did a 20 minute yoga before getting ready. It was the perfect Monday pick-me-up!

After lunch I sat on the porch with the kitties and a cup of tea. I watched a yellow butterfly that lives somewhere in our yard fly around. It was a tres peaceful moment that made me v. happy!

I love those booties! What a find! Booties are my ultimate go to cold weather footwear option, so I'm glad it's gotten chillier lately.
