My bff is so amazingly inspiring. On her blog today, she has a happy list. I'm totally stealing this idea for a post because I've neglected you. So, here it is- things that make me happy this very minute:
* The fact that I get to go (& just found this out!!!) to Yellowstone in May with Laura's family. This is made even more fabulous by the fact that I have plenty of vacation time to spend, and that my wonderful husband (more on him in a minute) is ok about me leaving for a week (even though I'll miss him x a million- we've never been apart that long...ahhh!) But all that being said, I'm SO EXCITED about this- I've always wanted to go and now was a GREAT time for such a fun pick-me-up!
*That it's almost the season for glittery flip flops.
*Daffodils are blooming (not in our yard yet, but in the 'hood!), and my irises that I thought I murdered are back!
*(Soon to be) being published in a fuuuuuun magazine!
*That I have friends share a passion for creating things.
*My husband who is so supportive of my creative endeavors, makes me feel like I can accomplish anything and helps out in any way he can (translation: carrying my scrapbooking things to the car ;)
*Two wet-nosed cuddly doggies that we could give a warm home to where they would get lots of attention
*Being able to pay our mortage & all the other bills. Scott's loss of income has definetely affected our mode of living, but we are making it.
*Sunshiny days that make me feel like even more sunshiny days are ahead.
*Tackling what feels like the un-tackle-able at work on a regular basis.
*Futures, plans, goals, dreams.
*Our future children's names which are soooo already picked out even though we aren't heading down that road quite yet.
*Coffee with vanilla carmel creamer and 2 sweet & lows. Mmmm..
*Grilled steak. ANYTHING on the grill, really. & the smell of the grill.
*All things sweats (ie hoodies and pants) and Scott making me feel beautiful even in the previously-mentioned attire.
*Friends that know everything about me & have laughed with me & cried with me.
*My Dad (good one, Laura). One amazing man. The fact that our relationship has evolved so much since my Mom died. The fact that he owns a business now and that he loves being his own boss, (Even if it stresses me out, LOTS).
*Orange. Earth colors. Very unnatural colors. Colors.
*So much tv that it's sick really. Laura, we will be watching TV in Yellowstone, right?
*Giving people things I make and seeing their reaction.
*Little kid birthday parties & softball practices :)
*Lyrics by Adam Duritz (Counting Crows)
*A well-filled scrapbook.
*Cuddling with Scott even though he says he hates cuddling.
That's a good list for now. Pictures later tonight :)
