Good morning All! We had a good time walking doggies yesterday (about 5). I'm already falling in love with a couple of really sweet well-behaved chihuahuas (don't tell my 16 year old Chiquita - picture below).
QOTD: Are you doing anything special for Valentines Day? We are going to a dinner/dance at the clubhouse tonight and I got DH some dark chocolate and a card for tomorrow (I don't like dark chocolate-LOL).

Good morning. I'm in the office but all the attorneys are traveling today - so I'm hoping for a quiet day.
QOTD: My husband has already expressed an interest in going out to lunch - in Boston. I'm not really liking the idea since I'm working at home and lunch in Boston will take a long time. We'll see.
B: steel cut oats
L: hummus with yellow peppers
D: chicken, veg
E: walk the dog hopefully
L/V: on track
If your husband is suggesting it, maybe he has something special planned? Mine wouldn't even have remembered...
What a cutie-pie!
Today it's just Art working from home - hopefully he'll refrain from distracting me. I've got a big list of things to accomplish, but I'm feeling good about the progress I made yesterday. I'm also planning to get out to run/walk and I have an alarm set so I'll to that OR ELSE.
QOTD: Totally not a holiday person in general - I was actually surprised when I went to the grocery store yesterday and there was all this red stuff everywhere :P So, no, not doing anything special for Valentine's Day.
1: protein shake
2: leftover Indian (the one downside of eating out is the guys finish their leftovers, if they have any, in one day.. but it takes me a week)
3: Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps (from this week's cookbook 30-Minute Get Real Meals: Eat Healthy Without Going to Extremes - trying not to feel dirty about using a Rachael Ray cookbook, but it's what the random number generator rolled up.)
liquid and vites: on track
exercise: run/walk, yoga stretching

I am not allowed by the hubby to volunteer because I would bring all of them home!
QOTD: Are you doing anything special for Valentines Day? We don't have plans, as the other half is working until 10:30. He usually doesn't do ANYTHING for Valentines Day as he says he loves me every day of the year (I'm rolling my eyes. He just doesn't want to shop.)

Oh my gosh Mickey is a cutie!!!! This is a picture of Emmy at 6 months old, the day I adopted her. She was a little scruffy back then. She was returned twice(I was never told the reason), so I am positive she was waiting for me:-) The second photo is 5 1/2 years later, she normally has long hair, but was just groomed.
Aw cute Chiquita! I took Fergus to the vet yesterday for an eyelid growth that started bleeding (just needed some eye drops). They saw us coming, and I ended up shelling out over $400 for all sorts of "necessary" senior dog checkup up stuff. Grrr.
QOTD: It'll be a single gal's Valentines for me. Movies with friends this afternoon and something out of the freezer for dinner. No chocolate. I ate that yesterday!
B - eggs and cheese
L - yogurt, berries, grain free granola
D - real good pizza
S - movie popcorn
