  • Wearing my wedding dress again. (Yeah, it still fits. WHAT!)
  • Being able to spend some quality time with Kylin Poole (see photo) AKA the best thing Ashley and Mark Poole ever did.
  • Evidently making Cabo’s on Cinco de Mayo a tradition for us.
  • A really wonderful dinner with our good friend Elizabeth. She said all kinds of crazy encouraging things to us. It was baller.
  • Defeating fleas in our house. Romeo is almost all clear!
  • My mom and all the fun surrounding Mother’s Day. Love you, Mommy!
  • Hosanna in the highest!
  • Surprising Alexa at Osaka for a (super belated) birthday party and actually not spending a fortune on hibachi!
  • Late night hang outs with Jessica, complete with Chocovine and Harry Potter Clue. (Even though Dan won.)
  • My friends. They are seriously the BEST.
  • Strawberries and $5 champagne.
  • Wedding dress shopping with Chrissie. And (maybe!) finding the dress!
  • Getting an inside-joke-text from Emily.
  • Encouraging emails, particularly one that included a 49-page PDF entitled, “How to Be Creative.” Yessss.
  • Steak & Shake after church with some of said awesome friends.
  • Kyle and Kelby’s wedding is coming up SATURDAY! (Or, as I call them, KYLBY! I know. I’m so clever.)
  • BronxZoosCobra.
  • MY HUSBAND. Can I brag a little bit? Over the past week, he’s put away two loads of laundry, cooked me dinner pretty much every night, brought me lattes to work, scratched my back/legs/wherever else I’m peeling incessantly, accompanied me on guitar while I played keys and sang Ingrid Michaelson (yes!) and just last night he brought me pickles to eat in bed. (Pickles are my favorite food and they are the only thing I can eat after brushing my teeth, what?! Don’t look at me like I’m gross!)
  • Tearful emails that lead to healing and redemption and grace.
  • Grace. Wow.
  • Girlfriends (who aren’t me) being pregnant.
  • Going to a jewelry open house and winning a raffle for $59 in free jewelry! I’m gonna be stylin’ on the cheap, y’all!
  • Lunch with Angie at Tropical Smoothie. Home girl made me laugh so hard I almost shot water out of my nose!
  • CONTEMPORARY DANCE CLASS. Finding my dance studio is seriously the best thing that has happened to me in a while.
  • Gonna start training next week for THIS.
  • YOU. YesΒ  you. If you are reading my blog right now,Β  you are currently making me smile.

What about you? What do you love? Comment and let me know!

  1. I love my new job! There’s a lot of new information to take in, but I am in an environment where everybody at work is encouraging one another in their faith, and I get to be the friendly face that welcomes customers when they walk in through the door. πŸ˜€

    And, I love that its been raining all morning and I don’t have work til 4, so I’ve just gotten to sit and enjoy the sight and sound of my mom’s beautiful backyard taking a nice, long drink πŸ™‚

  2. I love seeing the work that God has been doing in me lately. I love that each week your list gets longer.:) I love that my kid gets so excited to see me walk through the door each day that it’s like she hasn’t seen me in years. I love that we are finally friends (at least according to Facebook) and I can freely comment on your blog without feeling like some kind of weird stalker (even though I totally am).

  3. This was such a positive read for my thursday! Thank you!

    I love playing fetch with my pups and watching them get super hot and tired.
    I love kissing my fiancee’ when he is sweaty and dirty from working in the garden.
