ten things that make me happy rightthisverysecond

1\\ It's Friday! And there is coffee! And in just a few short hours my babies will all be home with me! Sure, Letty will want to retreat up to her room, but she will be here! Safe and sound in my tiny bubble world! Life is good!

2\\ Coffee when it's light, and wine when it's.... well, almost dark. Matt and I have been playing around with different cocktails trying to find a healthier (I know, it's still alcohol, but bear with me) option and have finally narrowed it down. Let's just say it's going to be a great drink for the summer days and nights out on the deck!

3\\ Speaking of healthier, Matt and I have been making a conscious effort to eat better as of late (I may have mentioned that a time or two) and hey! The scale is dropping so that's always a happy thing in my book!

4\\ Sometimes in life you just need to giggle at something like the responses to this tweet. Normally I take my 1990's Olympic figure skating quite seriously, but still.... Definitely got a few snickers out of it! Thanks to Grace for sharing that one last week...

5\\ Imagining our backyard construction zone all gone and the new oasis we shall create out there! For some reason I'm obsessed with finding new chair cushions and towels for the deck and they all. have. to. match! Like these turquoise towels and these chair cushions!

6\\ Looking at stills from Beauty and the Beast (like this one, and this, and this!). I just loved that movie so very much and I'm sure you're all tired of hearing about it, but until I can have it in my clutches I'm going to have the soundtrack on repeat and these images to carry me through.

7\\ I get to start shopping for the kid's Easter baskets here shortly and while I have a few ideas, (magnatiles, for one) I really have no idea what to get them. Amazon here I come! I love buying stuff for the kids but rarely do because: budget.

8\\ It'll be summer vacation for Letty in 74 days and for David in 49 days. Let the summer of yes begin! I have big plans for this summer, naturally. Countdown is on.

9\\ Scrolling through Tory's Instagram feed... Sometimes I feel like I'm a hippie trapped inside the body of a neurotic, dirt-hating, stay-at-home with my fluffed pillows type person... I love seeing all the places these van dwellers go and I think wow, what a life! I want that life! But then I'm like oh heat and a nice comfy bed, God bless you! And I'm a stage five clinger with my family so.... I'll live vicariously through accounts such as hers. But I'll still never skip a good sunset. My inner tree hugging hippie wouldn't allow it.

10\\ Last week we figured out how to use the whole Amazon Prime video feature (I know, I know) and I'm sooo excited to hopefully have a movie night with Letty this weekend so she can watch Fantastic Beasts! The immortal world of Harry Potter! Keep them coming please!

What about you guys? What's making you happy on this Friday?
