may day

7 things that made me happy this week . . .

one: finishing my classes for the semester. now onto exciting things like cleaning out my car and organizing my enormous stacks of magazines.

two: finding amazing deals, like these beautiful rifle paper co. cards

and baggu zipper bags

three: scary movie night with friends. i brought lots of treats but we never got around to eating them because the movie was so good and scary!

four: a lesson in church about journaling and getting excited about writing again.

five: realizing that i am not such a grump after all and that i can enjoy a good royal wedding now and then.

six: my new favorite song from the newest noah and the whale album. the best line? "don't be shy, be brave little champion." i'm trying to make that my motto.

seven: taking my sisters to see african cats and crying before the movie even started. an incredible movie and so much better than going to a zoo and seeing animals in little cages. whoops, almost got up on a soapbox there.

. . . and 3 that didn't

one: paying $25 for a pedicure that was as good as when i paint my nails. i guess i paid for a foot massage.

two: deliberately not setting an alarm this morning so i could wake up whenever i wanted. hello, 7:30 A.M. sunshine! on my shopping list? blackout shades.

three: finding tickets for adele's concert and then seeing the price. $170 and up. insane.
