That baby dress is gorgeous! I'm going to start knitting one for my little one this afternoon. Also thanks for sharing your mom's posts about depression. It's so nice to know that even the most "together" people have endured their blue periods too.

Asparagus and strawberries and beards? Hip hip hooray!!

I hear Zumba is so fun. I'm completely uncoordinated and have get to muster up the courage to move it in public.

Asparagus. It is on my shopping list as well. It is a must-have for Valentine's Day.

And tat Kitchen textbook? I'm intrigued. I wonder if my local library has it...

Love your 12. Will be participating with pictures in the morning.

Thanks for the reminder on the Oscars! They are my fave - adore, adore, adore the red carpet. Alas, with two littles, I rarely get to the movies but I still love to watch.

Okay. I've tabbed your post about what makes people subscribe so I can make my way through ALL THE comments!

Seriously. Can spring just get here already?

Your mom's posts are wonderful. Hooray for speaking up.

I saw those crepe squares when my everyday food mag came and am definitely wanting to try them! And I love ATK. Truly the best recipes all the time. I need to check out that book- I use The Best Recipe regularly.

Happy Valentine's Day, Marta!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS: "a true friend is one who sees you at zumba and still talks to you afterward." - that is def. being made into a quote keychain/framed print for a friend or two ;)

Elise said...

He he he- in my case: a true friend is one who sees you at zumba and still gives you a ride home afterwards!! Love it.

Counselor Musings said...

I loved the comment about Zumba-some people do look really funny, but that can make Zumba all the more fun. I'm so excited for the Oscars, and am already planning my party!

brooke said...

Hey Marta,

I loved your ALT recap and the photo of you and your dad and your to die for bangs.
