Make Me Happy...

Ten things that are making me ridiculously happy this week...

Whenever I see a GIF image online, it makes me feel like I'm reading a newspaper through Harry Potter's eyes.


A cancer walk for my aunt. My cousin and I have got all the details {location, date, t-shirts, time} sorted out for the run/walk we're organizing in memory of my aunt, and we're so ridiculously excited about it all. More details to come!

My new morning smoothie. One packet of sugar free hot chocolate, one banana, 1/4 cup skim milk, one tbsp reduced fat peanut butter and some ice. It's seriously fantastic.

Home Improvement. The writers of that show are geniuses. But I am madly in love with Tim Allen, so I suppose I'm a bit biased.

Video Editing. It's my new thing... video editing. I have continuous shoot on my Canon and have compiled a ton of photos to create somewhat of a 'stop action' slideshow of my sister's college graduation... I have to perfect it first, then I'll post it on the blog!

The days seem to be longer all of a sudden. It might just be me, but I feel like last night and this morning, the sun noticeably set later, and rose earlier. I understand how astronomy and daylight savings works, but it just seemed like a rather drastic and noticeable difference last night and this morning... a welcomed difference for sure. I need sunshine.

This song. Her voice is so beautiful.

Black and white Television. Most nights, I fall asleep to black and white TV. My favorite shows are The Twilight Zone, Perry Mason, I Love Lucy and Petticoat Junction {which isn't completely in black and white, but vintage none the less}. There's something calming about the sound quality of old shows that I just love.


Zest. Orange zest, lemon zest, lime zest... all of it makes me happy. It adds a flavorful bite of citrus to anything. I'm currently on a lemon zest kick, since I mistakenly bought 10 lemons for a recipe that only called for one. Oh well, I love lemons anyways... no harm, no foul.

Small plates. If a restaurant offers small plate options on their menu, I'm gaurunteed to come back. I don't think I've ever finished an entire meal when I've been out to eat, portions have simply gotten too big. Small plates mean I can get the same amount of food as a regular portion, but I can have two options off the menu instead of one... Perfect. {I just had lunch at Wicked Hop in the Third Ward and had a teeny tiny Caesar salad with grilled chicken, it made me happy.}

What is making you ridiculously happy this week?
