Happiness Is...

- a crab feast and watching fireworks on a pier with good company. It was a great way to spend the evening. It was warm but not hot and I didn't get cold one time. I always get cold over at their house because they live right on the river and it's shady and there's always a breeze so I bring pants and tennis shoes to change into. Didn't need to change this time. The breeze was minimal and the shade trees kept it a perfect temperature. Happy Independence Day!

- my Maytag Bravo washer and dryer. I <3 them greatly. It was one of the toughest decisions we made when buying the new house. We did lots of research and were overwhelmed by all the options and reviews. We decided on this set and I love it. It washes and dries well and it senses the clothes level in the washer and the wetness level in the dryer. I hardly ever have to put anything back in to dry longer. Only once in a while with jeans.

- a 3 day weekend with my honey. It was almost like a vacation. We didn't have any real plans other than the crab feast on Sunday. We lounged, ran some errands, did some cleaning and lounged some more. We slept in really late (for us) and it felt really good.

- buying a children's detangler for my hair. I'm so happy that it worked and it was cheap. My new shampoo (they didn't have my regular kind when I ran out) tangles my hair really badly no matter how careful I am when I wash it. I even tried brushing my hair before I got in the shower. Tangle City. So now I have my spray in detangler. I used it for the first time last night and it worked great. I don't like using conditioner on my hair because it weighs my hair down and makes it "greasy" since I have such fine hair. Hopefully this detangler will continue to do the trick.

Every time you mention crabs, I get jealous! I'm not making back to Maryland this year to see my family, which is usually a summer tradition, so no crabs for me this year. Very sad :( I hope they were fresh and delicious and served with lots of Old Bay, beer and hush puppies. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....
