Today I’m Smiling Because…

~I am getting closer to figuring out why some people aren’t seeing the current posts on my here.

~My boys are just fantastic kids. Sure they can be wild and crazy (after all, they are little boys), but at the end of the day, they are great little people.

~L’s winter break is just around the corner!

~B and I have a little day date planned today.  My parents volunteered to take the boys so they didn’t have to come to IKEA with us, so B and I are hitting up IKEA alone and are planning to have lunch in the D (the D = Detroit)!

~I went to TJ Maxx for the first time in ages and found some great deals including some adorable Kate Spade things.  I was in the market for a new wallet and this one is perfect.

~I finally got all of my packages shipped and out the door.  Prizes from giveaways here, care packages for two of my cousins and a trade all shipped out!  Yay!

~My Diet Pepsi consumption is still at very low levels.  Some days it’s zero.  Some days it’s 1.  Not bad!

~The Super Bowl is tomorrow!  Bring on all those fun commercials and great performances!

What’s got you smiling today?

Today I’m smiling because:

~It’s Saturday! We have no plans and it’s supposed to snow tomorrow! Yay!

~L got an amazing progress report for school yesterday. I couldn’t be more proud of him!

This picture cracks me up ;)

~My skin is FINALLY starting to look better!

~I have decreased my Diet Pepsi intake by like 90% since the New Year and that makes me smile!  And it is also likely the reason my skin is looking better!

~Ice-Skating is on in Prime Time tonight!  I don’t know if I am more excited for the skating itself or the commentary from Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir!

~Gas prices are still super low!  It’s amazing to see it for less than $2/gallon and I still do a double take because it seems to good to be true!

~A friend of mine who works at the GAP informed me last night that Sale items are an additional 50% off in-store!  I do all my shopping about a year in advance for the boys.  It saves me a ton.

That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?

~It took nearly two months, but a package I sent to a find in Germany has finally arrived! I was scared it had gotten lost, but it finally appeared! Yay!!1

~Michigan State is playing today and the game is going to be on CBS! Way easier than trying to figure out how to watch a game that’s on ESPN. #nocable

~B and L both have Monday off work / school!

~I haven’t had a Diet Pepsi in nearly two weeks. I miss it, but I know it’s for the best.

Miss You!

Miss You!

~We have a great neighborhood and have worked out a great carpool schedule for morning drop-off!  Ever been in the drop-off line?  That’s one crazy crazy place.  LOL.

~Of this on QVC. “I believe the moon is a star”.  What?  Live tv is the best.

That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?

Today I’m smiling because:

~B and I are on Day 5 of the Challenge and haven’t cheated yet! Well I haven’t. B is still drinking coffee. Such a rebel.

~I am FINALLY getting comment notifications and other e-mails in my inbox. I have no idea what was wrong with it, but it’s fixed now.

~Yesterday when L and WB saw each other after school, WB ran over to him and gave him the biggest hug ever. And L won’t admit it, but I know he misses WB when he’s at school too.

~I love how my Essie nail stickers turned out!  I still don’t have applying these down to a  science, but I am getting there.

Love!

Love!

~My friends just had a healthy and totally gorgeous baby girl!

~Shark Tank was all new last night.  That show never gets old.

~Tieks sent out an e-mail saying they are sending out a 2015 Calendar to their favorite Tieks girls.  I know it really wasn’t “free” because I bought a few pairs of Tieks, but I wasn’t expecting that so I am smiling!

~It may be freezing out, but my feet are snuggly warm with all the fun slippers and slipper socks I have been getting in subscription boxes!

That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?
