My New Best Friend

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know that we sure did!!
We're spending the day just relaxing. I'm taking a few minutes to myself this afternoon to enjoy a few of the gifts that my dear, wonderful husband gave me. You see, he knows of my serious love affair with both coffee and anything French so he indulged me with a brand spankin' new Tassimo coffee/cappucino/latte/etc...machine - simply divine, I might add - and Kaari Meng's book "The French Inspired Home" I'm enjoying a fabulously delicious cappucino (doctor says it's okay to indulge once in a while while pregnant) and reading my new book. Ahhhh, such relaxation. Oh, and I'm listening to my new Susan Boyle CD that he gave me as well. Love her!

Anyway, I hope that you're all enjoying this afternoon and staying warm. It's FREEZING today!
