Do I want to work? Or do I want to LIVE!?

Saturday morning I woke up, got ready for work at the survey-call center, went outside to get into my car and was overwhelmed with WARMTH. This is rare and prized anywhere between the months of October to May in the small city of Rexburg.

By the time I got to my car, a thought came to my mind. I could go sit in a cubicle and call people to take surveys for most of the day. Be a little richer? Yes. OR I could go on a picnic, soak up the sun, read a book, and take in the joy of spring. 

How often are we faced with such decisions and priorities?
I decided I wanted to live! So I called work, said I wouldn't be coming in today (cough cough) and promptly went to my sweeties house to demand his day, and go on a picnic. And that we did!

We snatched some coupons, grabbed some sandwiches and a blanket, a few good books, and trekked to the nearest park which was anything but uninhabited!
We soaked in the sun, inhaled some DE-LI-CIOUS chocolate chip cookies, and lived in the form of relaxing and enjoying each others company.

Boy, it was a STUNNING day. One of those days where you just forget everything except being grateful you are where you are, when you are there, and with who you are there with.

Then we got Icees. (which I LOOOOOVE!) We argued over whether they were called Icee's or Slurpees (Even though the machine CLEARLY said "Icee" on it!), and later I attended my best friends bridal shower, which was basically the cutest thing since teacup puppies and mini muffins.

Yes, her sister-in-law-to-be's kitchen was GREEN! Basically the funnest house ever!
This was in their kitchen! Need I say more?

 Clearly a necessity to every home I do believe.

And there's the bride-to-be, in the flesh. (Boy, I have great taste in lingerie. Future Mr. Jeanelle, no peeking!)

I worked out, ate sweets, and got things done. It was SUCH a good day. As for today, It's raining. (Big surprise for Rexburg's Bi-Polar weather.) But all the same, Spring: you can come around whenever you'd like.
