Well, hello Internet.

Um, it's that time of year again. I work all day on a computer and have zero desire to switch my computer on at home. I don't even think I've gone into my guest/office room at home in over 2 weeks. The door is permanently closed, at least for now.

I'm sure you don't want to hear about taxes and how I have to fix my own tax return because I'm too busy with everyone else's that I forgot to add many things. It's like the cobbler who owns no shoes and the mechanic who's car is on it's last leg. That's me. I think I amend my tax return every other year because I leave stuff off. *bangs head on desk*

I thought I'd pop by here really quickly during my alarmingly short lunch break and post a list of things that are making me smile as of late.


  • My new iPhone case that I ordered in a bright, cheery green.
  • Taking my youngest son to his 2 year checkup and finding that his vegan diet is just fine and he's growing like a weed. I intend on breaking the pre-conceived notion for some people who don't think it's possible.
  • Taking the time to actually mop my floor with a real mop and floor cleaner. I used to use a Swiffer and it sucked.
  • My size 10 jeans are too big! I bet I could wear a size 8 if I actually went shopping.
  • I'm only 10 pounds to my goal weight. It's been a long road, but I'm so close.
  • Hanging out with a dear, sweet friend for her birthday. Love you girl.
  • My oldest son asking me to bake him white chocolate macadamia nut cookies to mail to him. He likes my baking!
  • Seeing my Mom and how well she's doing with her weight loss.
  • Paying off another credit card. Only 1 more to go.
  • Holding the cutest newborn for long periods of time while talking to his new momma.
  • Taking Jackson for a bike ride around the neighborhood and making stops at the park to play. It's so awesome. Especially when we race to go down the big slide.
  • Making time to visit the zoo in a few weeks. I can't wait.
  • Being told that the salads that I make everyday at work look pretty. They taste good too, in my opinion.
  • Making tentative plans to go to New Orleans after tax season is over with a few ladies. I'm probably more excited than is necessary.
  • Having someone come out this Sunday to quote a price to help me build my own garden.
  • Taking Jackson to see Elmo Live this Sunday. I can't wait to see his face.
  • Driving my Mom's Smart car and having people smile. It's a car that makes everyone smile.
  • Giving my dog, Emma, belly rubs and knowing that she's in total nirvana.
  • Knowing that tax season is over in just a few short weeks. (About 7 to be almost exact.)

Oh a new blog! And here I thought you would be gone for a while since it's that time of year! I miss your musings!

Elmo live! How fun. We are doing Thomas next months for the 4 year old. The 2 year old likes nothing but shoes (and thank goodness books!)and I'm not even kidding
