It's Friday... And that is awesome.

Winter hibernation has arrived.

Shorter daylight hour are upon us in England,
and it has made me lethargic in an epic way.

Luckily, Tyler is working from home right now
and we are relishing in the luxury of sleeping a bit later
and watching a bit more TV 
than a doctor might recommend for a healthy lifestyle.

Speaking of sleeping well...
do any of you sleep with a sleep mask?

I just started, and I'm sleeping like a queen.
It's actually revolutionary.... I dare you to try it.

The lazier schedule is also allowing me time 
to meet for tea with my charmy-pants friend, Tammy,
in cute tea shops, like Betty Blythe in Kensington.
{Which I found in my nifty guide- Tea & Cake, London.}

There really is something to be said for catching up
over a cup of tea (with milk & sugar!)
and eating a giant hunk of lemon drizzle cake.

Why don't doctor's prescribe things like that?

I've also had time to hang out with blogger friends 
at meetings over dinner (hey, Helena!)
X-Factor Finale parties (hey, Amber!)
& the London Blogger Party (hey, everyone!)

And I've also been thinking about Paris,
and all the food I am going to eat when I'm there.

I mean, 3 months in Paris?

I'm gonna be busting out of my clothes by the time I get back...
at least, if things go as I plan.

I'm hoping to construct a wardrobe 

So, yes, this has basically been 
one of the better weeks of my life.

What do you start dreaming of when you're locked indoors?

*PS. I'm actually still working during all of this from home. 
I just have a bit more time freed up since my semester is over. :)
