It’s Friday. And it’s Good.


This morning I woke up in usual fashion: fighting my alarm clock and hitting snooze at least three times. Yes, three times, because that’s how I roll. Sometimes the snooze button count can get up to five or six or seven. I finally dragged myself out of bed, washed my face, and sat down in front of the computer. I did the usual blog run, cruising through my Google Reader, and checking out all the fantastic content out there.

As I was chowing down on my Cheerios with bananas, I was reading one of my favorite photographer blogs, by the dynamic duo from Connecticut, Justin and Mary Marantz. I love their blog! Not only are their little videos in the header totally awesome, but their content is so fun. I scrolled down a little further and noticed “Winners Circle”. Earlier this week, Mary posted a little contest about 5-10 things that make you happy. You can read it here. Well, then I was reading today’s post and what did I see? My name! No way! Way. Talking about Mac Makeup makes Mary happy and so they are hooking me up with a $25 gift card to Mac. I love Mac Cosmetics and their eye primer paints make me happy! THANK YOU times infinity plus one!

So I thought I would share the list here:

  1. My fiance, Cent, he’s just dreamy, and would probably laugh at me for saying that.
  2. My two dachshunds, Walter the Farting Dog and Frieda the Snoring Dog. True story.
  3. Blogs and Blog Love, because a little blog love can go a long way!
  4. MAC makeup, thanks to my friend Elana for making me walk into the store back in December.
  5. Jason Mraz, I’ve followed him since the old skool San Diego days, thanks to my friend Liz for the introduction.
  6. Zaxby’s, or as I call it in my head, the most delicious house of chicken! Sadly, it’s only in the South, but I’m moving this summer so it won’t be far!
  7. RED VELVET CAKE, and cake in general. I’ll be whipping some up from scratch with Beth and Dianna in May.
  8. Hanging with the family. On Fridays we have “Family Night” were we eat, catch up, hang out, and watch movies.
  9. Reading a good book while cozy in bed. I’m currently reading The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry: Love, Laughter, and Tears in Paris at the World’s Most Famous Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn.
  10. Deep conversations, who doesn’t? A little philosophy never hurt.

And because pictures liven up any post, I present Frieda and Walter.

Happy Good Friday and have a Blessed Easter!
