Happiness Is...

- spending Father's day with my husband and the Little Guy. We went to lunch and had some steamed crabs while chatting and looking out at the water.

- eating a frosty. I. love. frosties. I only get them once or twice a Summer, but they are soooo good and refreshing.

- having great bloggy buddies. You guys always understand and it makes me feel good to read your comments.

- a quick passing thunderstorm that waters the grass and the plants. We had one last night and it was a doozy. Thank goodness it was quick and we were never in any danger of a tornado, but it did its job and watered everything for us. Moving the sprinklers every 30 minutes to cover our freshly seeded 1 acre lot can be a pain in the butt in the evening when all you want to do is kick off your shoes and chill on the couch. Thank you Mother Nature!

- looking forward to Friday this week. I am taking off work to take the Little Guy to a local beach with his cousins and my SIL. It will be hot and sunny...perfect beach weather.

haha, I hear ya on moving the sprinklers!! What a drag - every year our lawn is brown by the end of the summer because we get lazy ;). This year we actually splurged on a timer from Home Depot that has 4 spouts. Then we rigged up 4 long hoses + to those stake sprinklers, scattered across the lawn. Now the lawn waters itself - yay! And only cost us $100 vs having a professional sprinkler system put in. You might need more than one system with a 1 acre lawn (I think ours is .6 of an acre or so), but it's so worth it!

Have fun at the beach, it sounds great!

Great list! I love frosties, too. They're so fake and so bad, but so good!

I have to ask... what's a frosty? Wendy's frosties? I apologize for my question in a way!! LOL.

Hey chickie, I tried to track down your email on iV and here, but no dice! I heard about an IVF clinical trial that I thought you might be interested in looking into, to see if you/your clinic qualify -- if you are, shoot me an email at larker4-at-gmail-dot-com and I'll send you the info. ;)

Lara (NoodleGirl) said...

Argh, crap - i just noticed the trial is for women 35-42. One of the few times it stinks to be too young!! I'll keep keeping an eye out for you though! ;)

I like your happiness list. It's good to focus on the positive. Good luck!

I so love thunderstorms *IF* I'm at home and there is no concern for tornados! We've had some great ones lately, they make me want to take a nap!!

Looks like you had a great day! I love frosties too! I remember following a while back but for some reason, I didn't have your link until just now! Happy ICLW! (#75)
