Playing the waiting game... This baby is welcome to show up at any time. Meanwhile, it's SNOWING in Wilmington. I haven't seen snow here in about 2 years.
The weather is SO bipolar. I wouldn't be surprised if it is snowing on the day we bring Ezra home from the hospital. I'll blame it on Jon's parents haha. They got in town on Wednesday after spending 5 months in Arizona and a week in Florida. Apparently, while they were visiting their son, Jeff, in AZ they had a week of 16 degree weather! 

Tonight here is supposed to be 28. A temperature that I have only seen this winter ONE time. But, tomorrow is supposed to be 50 degrees by the end of the morning and all of the lovely snow that does stay will be gone. :( Noah will be so disappointed, after he keeps running to the window asking if the ground is white. He is forever fighting me on the fact that it isn't fair that you have to choose to live near where is snows or where the beach is. 
Fortunately, since hubby and I both used to live in the snow and don't want to go back to it, we will (hopefully) raise our boys to be tanned, beach going, surfing, sun loving "dudes" LOL Meanwhile, I'll just keep watching the snowfall from inside with my buddy Mr Owl and some tea <3

I am so excited! Trader Joe's just opened in Wilmington yesterday! 
Today, hubs and I went to go check it out. The crowds were so crazy that the police where there to direct people into parking spots! 

I've been to the Trader Joe's store in Charlotte a few times, but you can only buy so many things without weighing down our car or having perishables in our belongings. But, today, I went and stocked up on just a few essentials, aka... dinner and a treat!

Among the the Szechuan beef & broccoli, organic pork gyoza, pumpkin pancake & waffle mix... I got the little gem you see to the left. Sipping Chocolate. I promise you, it will satisfy everything that you ever wanted in the way of hot chocolate. 

Recently, I have been trying to finish up a box of Swiss Miss that we have had in the cupboard for WAY too long. It, especially being fat free, turns me off with a passion! In comparison, this heaven on earth!
It's definitely thicker than the stuff you'd make in your Keurig and sweeter & richer than any type of chocolate milk.  


Tonight, Jon and I feasted our bellies on Chinese and our eyes on Downton Abbey. A large cup of this chocolate & a cozy blanket made this night a success!!
