Happiness Is...

- the Spring trees sprouting almost over night. The pear trees, the Cherry Blossoms, the dogwoods, the bright yellow bushes that I don't know what they are....simply beautiful!

- owning (and knowing how to use) a DVR. I've never had one until the new house. I'm not sure I could watch TV without it. :-) Bathroom break? No worries...just pause it. Didn't quite see that pool in the backyard on house hunters? No worries...just rewind it. Don't feel like watching 45 minutes of commercials during American Idol? No worries...just tape it and watch it while fast forwarding through all the BS of that show. I could go on an on about how I love my DVR...

- making an Easter basket for the Little Guy and BJ. A little panicked that I haven't bought anything yet and Easter is THIS weekend! How did it get here so fast? But still excited to carry on my yearly tradition of making baskets.

- looking forward to Friday....I'm off and it will be sunny and almost 80! Holy Moly! It doesn't get any better than that. I'm pretty much tied to the house to wait for the HVAC guys but I can open the windows and sit on the front porch for as long as I like.

- FINALLY finding 2 chairs and a small table for our front porch this past weekend. We bought them on sale at Target and I really like them. They are dark wicker with a light gray cushion. The table is pretty much the same wicker color with a frosted glass top. It's round and it folds right away if needed. We are however, wishing that we would have looked into how much it would have cost to expand our porch to 6 feet instead of the standard 4 as the chairs make it a tight squeeze to get by. But it is what it is and I love our new porch furniture...if we could only find some deck furniture that didn't cost an arm and a leg. :-)

OMG - I cannot imagine life without TiVo. Seriously, it is like imagining life without air. Not happening!
