Hump Day Happiness
Happy April 4th! Can you belive it’s nearly Easter or that 1/4 of the year is already over??
Here’s some things brining me happiness on this Wednesday, hope they bring you some too!
I spent all afternoon last Sunday working in our front yard. Since we own a townhouse, the yard is small, but it somehow still takes A LOT of work. I cleaned up our flower beds, planted some new flowers and put down mulch. The bulk of my time was spent installing the new brick border that divides the grass from the flower beds. Despite having no idea what I was doing, I’m so happy with the results! It brings a smile to my face every morning when I get in my car for work (and that’s saying a lot).
Tonight I met up with a dear friend for dinner after work. We headed over to Ted’s Bulletin. It has an upsacle diner theme and looks and feels straight out of the 40’s. They make their own amazing baked good, and the food is delicious (breakfast all day!), but the best thing they have is their adult milkshakes. Yes, a milkshake with liquor in it. YUM, YUM, YUM. I’m broke my processed sugar fast for a “Dirty Girl Scout.” Imagine a thin mint cookie turned into a milkshake with pepperment schnapps. (Those are the actual shakes pictured above)
Since I am obsessed with anything striped these days, I fell madly in love with the above GAP shirt when I saw it on fabulous fashion blogger Veronika from Veronika’s Blushing. Just my (bad) luck, it was no longer available online. I happened to pop into a GAP yesterday and what did I spy? The top! For $2.97!!! That’s right, $2.97.
As many of my loyal readers know, I LOVE baseball. I’ve been a die-hard Orioles fan since I was a toddler and I used to work for the Nationals in DC. I’m devoted to both teams. In the span of 3o minutes today, I was offered tickets to the Orioles Opening Day and the Nationals Opening Day. Yeah, it’s been a good day.
