Scenes from my unexpected day off

{my first time baking madeleines, a little mouse (aka derek) took a nibble while I wasn't looking}

{a little gift I got myself today}
{I made one of my mom's signature dishes, Lou's Chicken. She was the best cook ever}
{vino! }

It was SO nice to not have to wake up to a blaring alarm clock this morning. There's something about alarm clocks not being conducive to the beginning of a good day. My day off was exactly what I needed. I spent time doing a couple errands, treated myself to a little retail therapy, did some baking, and had a nice quiet dinner and a movie with D (wine included!). I wish everyday was like this one. Too bad I'm usually in a mad rush to meet deadlines and see patients, and my diet consists of Subway and boca burgers. Anyway, all complaints aside,life is pretty good =)

Tomorrow I'll be posting info about my giveaway to celebrate my 100th post, so make sure to stop by and join in on all the fun! I found some really great items while I was out today, and am really excited to share it with ya'll !


  1. I'm so glad I found your blog! I'm immediately drawn in by all your charming posts. Keep up the great work girl...you'll be seeing more of me!

  2. The chicken looks delicious. :) It's hard to see it, though ... is it sort of like a chicken parm?

    Also, could I trouble you for the red velvet cake recipe? I'd love to try to make it myself someday, though I am sure it won't come out as delicious as yours!

    I have a virtual cookie exchange that I started on my site, Id love you to add your cookies to the whrrl story when you have a minute ! :)

  6. I'm with you on alarm clocks. Even when I hear them in movies I cringe. That's why I use my phone with a nice little ditty.

    Thanks so much for sharing in my SITS day last week!!!!!

  7. Love me some madeleines! I have thought about buying one of those neat little pans but was a little intimidated by it. Were they easy to make?
