Make Me Happy...

This has been one of those weeks... not any major crises to deal with, just a lot of little inconveniences and stressful moments that combined to make me very, very tired. I had several blog posts in mind, all of which were jolly and entertaining, but by the time I got home last night, I was feeling neither jolly nor entertaining. What should have been a night of cleaning, grading papers, and actually being productive became a "pour a huge mountain dew, crawl in bed with a magazine, crawl out of bed to eat dinner, engage in some retail therapy, and watch endless episodes of Reba and Psych" kind of night. Of course by the time I did all of those things I had dragged myself away from my pity party (which was quite a shindig) and decided that there WERE some happy things from this week... I just needed to be reminded of them. So... here they are, in no particular order. =)



Lily Kate  is our youth pastor's SO CUTE and hilarious daughter. She and I usually get to hang out a little bit before Awanas starts on Wednesday nights. She likes to scribble on my papers... although this week we actually had an educational experience and I helped her write her name. =) 


We got to go to the Mum Fest on Saturday and it was absolutely gorgeous outside. (I am a little disillusioned since there was nary a mum in sight.) Perfect weather for walking around downtown with several thousand of our closest friends. =) 


Did I mention there was funnel cake involved? Or that I may have possibly inhaled it? Sooo good.



Jonathan and I shared a Chick-fil-A cookie (my favorite) the other night and it was excellent, as always.


This beau-ti-ful necklace was a gift from my bff Sara and I looove it. The grey, brown, and coral-pink colors are so pretty.


This was the retail therapy (from Target... obviously) that I indulged in after my stressful week... I have pinned lots of outfits with leopard scarves lately and I can't wait to wear it! (By the way... may I just say that I die a little every time someone pins a pictures of "scarfs"? It's scarvvvves.... change the f to v, people! Third graders know this. Wooh. I feel better now.)

Anyway, now you know what makes me happy... food, food, jewelry, clothes, oh... and hanging out with el husband. Fatty, fatty, materialistic...  aaand a good wife. Yep, sounds like me. 

Happy weekend, everyone!!!
