10 Things That Made Me Happy Today

  1. Having a lazy, stay-in-our-PJs morning with Zach and Allie.
  2. Running into Jacki at the gym and chatting as we worked out side-by-side on the treadmill and elliptical.
  3. Allie planting dozens of kisses on my cheek throughout the day because "it's your birthday, Mommy."
  4. Nicky dressing in his red, clingy athletic shirt and black shorts because he and two friends made plans to "dress as twins" ... or maybe triplets ... today.
  5. Adorning the house in Halloween decor -- creepy piano and all.
  6. The vanilla-caramel-pumpkin scented wall thingy that makes my house smell like something scrumptious is in the oven -- and no calories.
  7. Brett bringing home chinese food and a good bottle of Pinot for dinner.
  8. Watching Allie give her brothers a run for their money as they played football with Brett in the back yard. And Allie having a Marcia Brady hit-in-the-nose moment but handling it like a trooper and running for the touchdown.
  9. Chocolate cake for dessert -- yum!
  10. Hearing the kids -- off key and out of sync, but oh so sweetly -- sing Happy to Birthday to me. Oh ... and looking at the beautiful cake in the picture above.
Incidentally, for some reason Google ads have been popping up in my posts. I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of them. So for now, just ignore them ... I won't tell Google :)
