I've been ordering boots with Christmas gift cards, planning out a uniform of clothes for when I go back to work (thankfully it's pretty casual and I can wear the same things at work as I do on the weekends), getting the guts up to chop off my hair (really not hard or brave in the big scheme of things), and craving, scheming and dreaming of chocolate cakes and pies.
I can hear the little guy stirring now, and after he eats we're taking a little outing of Christmas returns and Pho; and then picking up eggs and dark chocolate so I can finally give myself the chocolate it's been begging for. I'm thinking some kind of chocolate layer cake with a ganache filling and a little buttercream topping. I want to slide my fork into that mess, cuddled on the couch with Clover as the winter sun sets through our back windows. Now that's one awesome Saturday night.
