It's Friday, friends! Time for a little end of the week happiness- a reflection on all the good little things.
Before I start I do have one lingering question for this week on the food front- how do you shop? I generally do one big grocery store shopping to get what I need for the week, though it has happened where I've had to run in for a few things in between. But I know there are people who stop in every few days to pick up what they need for a meal and get things fresh. I don't know if I can manage that with two small kids, but I like the idea of eating fresh broccoli rather than the broccoli that's been in my fridge for a week, although I suppose broccoli is broccoli. So, how do you shop? Do you make a big trip like me? Small trips? Load up at the farmer's market (I'd love to do this!!)? Stick to the main grocery or go to a market like Whole Foods? Do tell!
Alright, here we go! Happiness is...
...bookcases! I'll have a post next week and an interesting story on why it's taken almost 5 months to get bookcases into our living room, but they are here, they are painted, and they are in the house and almost attached to the wall. Time to fill them with all these books I've been grabbing from the dump!
...shopping at Pottery Barn. Swoon. Please don't be too jealous- it was only lamps. But still, the hubs allowed me into the holy grail after two failed attempts at purchasing lamps online. It is a magical, magical place.
...having an entire fleet to do every job imaginable (and he knows what they all do, too).
...having the hubs home on vacation next week! Ok, vacation means him continuing to build the bathroom in the entryway, but still- it will be nice to have him around all week.
...a new tiny slow cooker. I love my regular one so much, when I saw this one at Walmart (for $9.97, no less) I grabbed it. I think it will be great for beans or that overnight oatmeal, and it will be nice if I want to make beans while also slow cooking meat. Score!
I hope you all have a great weekend! What's making you happy this week?
