Things That Make Me Happy On My Birthday

It’s my birthday! ย The big Three Three. I’m making Scott take me out to lunch today where I intend to drink a bloody mary and eat a delicious cheeseburger.

I also intend on smiling. A lot. And laughing, and relaxing, and loving, and taking it easy. No fanfare needed, no party, no fancy dinners.

It’s cool. I like it this way.

Here are a few things that are making me happy today.

Kendall got to pick a prize from the class treasure box yesterday for good behavior, and he chose this ring for me! He ran out of school with this in one hand, and a yellow dandelion in the other and handed them both to me with such gusto he almost fell over. “For you, mom! I got it just for you!” Sooโ€ฆ that’s the cutest ever.

This Brian Williams rap from The Tonight Show. Because. Just watch.

Truly, I’m just happy Jimmy Fallon is on an entire hour earlier now. This NPR piece on Fallon’s joy and the joy he brings to others is spot on. Yes. More joy!

This baby meme. OMG. Please don’t hate me for dying laughing at this one. (See more here.)


My new Facebook page cover image. This is just a little peek at my new design and re-branding to come. I’m working with a couple great designers on sprucing up the place. Can’t wait!
