Celebrating Little Things

I got to meet Classy Steph yesterday and grab dinner with her after work! She was in town for work and we had a few hours to inhale some mexican food together. After all, we've only been talking about our shared love for Mexican Food and DisneyWorld for years now. It felt totally natural to finally sit down in person with each other. Blogging rocks in that way. In no time at all TWO and a HALF HOURS had passed and our conversation was still going strong. Plus? Steph brought me a first-edition Harry Potter book so I could finally read the series and become like the rest of the human race ;) Also, I'm pretty confident our server was hoping we'd become her BFF... what can I say? We are a couple of fun gals! That is definitely something worth celebrating.

I'm also celebrating:
…good health! I don't ever want to take this life and this body for granted. We only get one!

... casual Fridays FINALLY becoming a real thing at my office. Only took me about five years to convince the boss, but we can now wear jeans on Fridays, woot!!!

... Jared being able to work overtime consistently again. Those few extra hours each week really add up on a paycheck. Sallie & Perkins are happy campers.

... a fun-filled day of boating with family tomorrow (fingers crossed for good weather!) I haven't been boating since last July in Arkansas so it's long overdue and I'm really looking forward to it.

... Putting a new nail polish on your toes and it actually going over 2 weeks without chipping! It's a miracle! Don't worry, I'll spare you a photo of my feet ;)

... Organizing photos and videos on your computer and coming across the video your friend made you for your wedding day because we were both devastated she couldn't be there. Love you, Amanda!!
Throwback! Us on our 25th bday :)
Celebrate the little things people, they add up to the big things and mean the most!

  4. Seriously my biggest pet peeve is when people post pictures of their feet to show their polish/shoes/etc/ I'm sure you have cute feet, but thanks for sparing us! :) haha.
    And YAY for casual Fridays. 6 years ago when I started we had to donate $5 to charity to wear jeans on Friday....and now....we get to wear jeans EVERY SINGLE DAY!! So keep trying for more days, it might pay off!!

  8. I almost asked you yesterday if you were going for Mexican but I pretty much knew the answer. ;)

    I'm dying for a pedicure. There's no way I can do them myself. What I really want is someone who will make a house call and not only give me a pedicure but also shave my legs!
