Wouldn't this be lovely?

I know many of you have seen this before, but my head is here right now.  Imagine cozy PJs, a bowl of spaghetti (my comfort food of choice) and a TV playing a marathon of some mind numbing awesomeness like Real Housewives or the Kardashians (I mean, I'd like to think I would read, but that seems like a lot of effort).  I could also sleep here.  Sleep, eat, stare at the wall, sleep.  The perfect post-holiday time out :) 

Edward had a wonderful Christmas and the funniest reaction to Santa's delivery.  He was so overwhelmed with excitement he couldn't even come into the room! He spun around in circles and danced and hid behind a table and laughed for about 5 minutes before he could actually approach his new toys.  I have it on video and if I can ever figure out how to share it with you I will because it was amazing.  Christmas is so much more fun as a parent.  

We're getting ready for a trip to Costa Rica! I'm going to work on a few simple posts for that week.  Hope everyone had a happy holiday weekend! 

* Also, I'd love any recommendations on books to read on the beach or things we must see or do in Costa Rica! 


  1. I love Sandy's little cottage that you have posted here. She is just the sweetest thing, too.

    I hope you can figure out how to post your video AND that you have fun in Costa Rica. Did you ever read Water For Elephants?

    Hugs and Happy post Christmas week- xo Diana

  2. I would love to see the video..sounds adorable! Glad Christmas was wonderful for all of you. That cottage is dreamy, like you put me in there with a good book and an endless supply of spaghetti (sounds good) and I am good! What a cozy charming little getaway!!
    How fun that you are headed to Costa Rica.....would you do a canopy tour, the ziplines about the trees? There is supposed to be an amazing one above the rainforest. And of course tons of beachy, pool-y activities and eating and sleeping...and then repeating that cycle! Fun fun fun..enjoy and safe travels!

  3. awww - glad it was a special year! have a lovely time in Costa Rica!! ox

  4. I hope you can do the video, it sounds PRECIOUS!!! Have never been to Costa Rica so no advice. Water for Elephants is very good as well as the Book Theif. XO, Pinky

  5. Oh I wish I could tell you about costa rica! Have fun!

  6. I love every picture here -- oh how i want it to be in my back yard (and heated) and I could go hole up with tea and a book!

    You should totally read 'The Night Circus'. :)Melissa
