Things That Make Me Happy Today

Today is Friday. Friday I love.

Here is a short list of things that make me happy today ...
  • My thesis has been approved for defense! We're working on scheduling now and it looks like I will be defending within the next two months.
  • My house is super duper clean. I love a fresh, clean smelling house. I had been telling Lindsey a while back that I seem to have lost motivation to keep on top of housework lately. Thankfully, I found my motivation yesterday! I did major cleaning, including some extra Spring Cleaning type jobs. The dog (and maybe even the husband) will be sleeping outside tonight.
  • Tomorrow, I'm co-hosting a personal shower for Caley with the other bridesmaids. I am looking forward to a good {mildly dirty} time with the girls!
  • My brother and SIL are coming for part of the weekend and on Monday we're planning to go shopping in the states. I might make some purchases for Bambino and we're hoping to test out PF Chang's for bro's birthday dinner.
  • The cherry trees are starting to come in bloom in the orchards, making our yard look absolutely beautiful.
  • I'm starting to feel him wiggle around more and more in there. I love the evidence that a new life is growing inside of me.
  • I've been doing a lot of walking lately and it helps me to feel refreshed and energized.
  • It's the weekend!
What makes you happy today?

Have fun shopping in the states. We have a pretty sweet mall in CO if you are looking for a good one.

Isn't it amazing how much just going for a nice walk is? I hope I can be as active as you are during a pregnancy someday.

Hi friend! It's been so long since I've been to your blog - I've really slacked off on blog reading since being in the States but I was thinking of you and was wondering what you have been up to. I just read a bunch of your past posts and I must say that I love the one about all the things that Americans are missing out on. :) I just LOVE poutine. When I first had it I thought it was the craziest sounding concotion but one bite and I was hooked. And nanimo bars...oh my LOVE. Coffee Crisps...eh, not so great in my book but that's okay, right? :) And I especially enjoyed reading your post about the letter to your baby. Awww! It made me a little teary! I'm glad to see things are going well - and girl you look so fantastic! You make such a cute prego woman. Hope you are having a great night with FD. Talk to you soon!
