What makes me happy.

This week has been really slow, but really great. Ever have one of those weeks where nothing is really going wrong, but you're just SO ready for the work week to be over? Yeah, well, I'm there. So in random times like these, I have to focus on what keeps me happy.

Making homemade ornaments just because.

Capturing funny, adorable moments at birthday parties, like this.

New running shoes that I got on SUPER sale right after Christmas. My friend gave me a 6:15AM wake up call to hit the gym with her...and you bet these bad boys got put to use.

Singing sweet Nora happy birthday, for the third year in a row. She's the cutest. Seriously, haayyy Baby Gap. Oh and that's her gorgeous momma, Marie...you know, that friend who made me wake up at the crack of dawn to go running today ;)

When a teenager can do my hair better than I can.

Finding out an awesome blogger friend, miss Becky, is coming to stay with me for a quick weekend soon!!! It was totally out of the blue after we'd been casually chatting about it for so long and we are finally planning lots of fun things (including Mexican food and marathon training) and I can't wait to squeeze her!

An encouraging note from a sweet friend yesterday. Made me tear up (Hiiii Betsy!)

What's making you happy this week!? Seriously, I want to know!

  3. If my child turns out half a cute as Nora than I've done something right ;) Seriously, what a cutie! I'm happy to be back to a normal routine after a nice break. I know, being happy that break is over?! Crazy.

  14. I'm quite convinced Nora is actually your offspring - she looks like a mini Kayla to me, especially with that big sweet smile!! She's lucky to have a sweet "aunt" like you :) Loved this happy post, friend! And yaaaay Becky coming to visit you! Y'all are going to have a blast.
