Things that make me smile

Today is going to be a good day. I’m determined to make it so.

Here are a few things that will help:
  1. I shaved my legs this morning. (I know, a pretty big deal right?) In case you’re thinking “what the hell?” right about now, trust me when I say that this is a major accomplishment for the girl who showers in a 2 x 2 shower at the gym in the morning.
  2. The sun is shining, for at least the 5th day in a row. The high temperature today? Above 70! And I didn’t have to wear a coat to work this morning. It just keeps getting better!
  3. My other half is working late tonight. Usually, I’d be a little disappointed but today, I’m using the down time to treat myself to a much-needed pedicure after work. Is it 5:00 yet?
  4. The neighbors—the ones that make living in this neighborhood so wonderful—are having a BBQ tonight. I won’t be home in time to dine with them, but hope to be home in time to share some conversation and play with their adorable children (and maybe secretly wish—only for a second— that I had some kids to play along with them). 
  5. Speaking of children, two of our closest friends are expecting their first baby this fall. This week they found out they're having a baby girl. I'm so excited for them and can't wait to spoil her rotten!
  6. I will go to sleep tonight, and when I wake up it will be Friday. ‘Nuff said.

What’s making you smile today? Happy Friday-eve!


  1. Great list! I have been smiling all weekend because we got to spend time with my parents and grandparents and J's parents and grandparents for his graduation. It was a long and busy weekend full of love and laughs :)

    Have a great day!
