9:01am Sat Morning: Woke Up @ 4:30…2 much caffeine already! :) Valentine’s Dinner Tonight @ the Club

Lately, I’ve been crashing earlier and waking up earlier and doing menus, office stuff as the sun comes up! Think I’m on 6th cup and thinking of running by Crema en route to work today first stopping @ Farmer’s Market 2 pick up some collards and stuff for the Valentine’s Dinner tonight! Tried to wake dogs up to play prior to work…finally succeeded but now it’s time to get ready lol!
