{In Photos} How a Bad Day Got Better

Friends, we survived Monday!!
And let me just tell you, if any of you read my tweets from yesterday, you would've known I was WAY ready for the day to be over. Such a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
(And if you don't know that reference you desperately need to check this out. )

Work was rough yesterday and by the time I left, I was certain the day was doomed, but let me just tell you how it got better...

Boyfriend came over and surprised me with these
(and the world's sweetest card)...

And then took me here...

...where I ordered this...

...and he told stories that made me smile as he held my hand across the table. That man is a real keeper, my friends. A real keeper.

The rest of my night consisted of baking these for work...


...while listening to this on repeat...

It was also quite lovely to find out I won Casey's giveaway, where I promptly ordered this from Fashion to Figure...

...and finished this fabulous gem of a novel (on to the 3rd!!)...


My goodness! Can you easily see how that would cheer me up? I have to say that I'm one lucky lass. I woke up this morning happy and refreshed, and I plan on making today a great day, no matter what is thrown at me. :)
