10 Things That Make Me a Happy Girl:
1. Dressing like a frumpy gypsy mom (see above).  Someday this will be horribly embarrassing to Joonman, but for now, he thinks it's hilarious to use my skirt as his own personal fort.
2. Toffee, cake balls, fudge...the Caramel Tree here in Rigby is going to be the death of me.
3. Making SIX stops at furniture stores before finding the perfect TV stand...at Wal Mart, under our budget. This is how we felt after a day of walking through furniture stores with a restless Joonbaby:
4.  ...And, on that note, successfully assembling a TV stand with 10,000 nuts and bolts and panels.  It's gaaawgeous.
5. Watching SNL clips. My faves: NuvaBling, Jon Hamm's John Ham, and Shanna.
6. Laughing so hard at dinner that we cry and I can barely talk to bless the meal.
7. Maxi skirts & moccasins, of course.
8. My favorite author's latest book was released on Tuesday!  I snagged a copy right away.  Usually when I want a book I'll wait for a used copy on Amazon, but for my favorite authors, I feel like it's good karma to pay full price on a hardback copy I know I'll read over and over again.
You can buy it here if you'd like: Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris
9. Salty-sleepy-sweaty baby smell.
10. Of course, always, these two:

  1. I personally like your look; it looks so comfy! My mom used to wear those skirts when she was younger and looking at pictures, dang did she pull them off! I've had an inclination towards them ever since.

  2. You don't look frumpy seriously! I love maxi skirts so much, Mom sweat pants for sure.

  3. Just stumbled on your blog. Love it, and you and all the Idaho references- makes me nostalgic for my BYU-Idaho days. I LOVE Sedaris! Have you listened to this interview??
