The Many Reasons I'm Smiling Today

Do you ever just feel happy?  I mean like really happy?  A happiness that you can't quite pinpoint - but are so delighted to feel?  That's how I feel today.  On a random Wednesday I'm bursting with happiness.  It's a good feeling ladies....a good feeling.

I have been pondering the source of this happiness all morning long but can't quite determine where this is coming from.  So I figure I'll just list a couple of the many reasons I'm so joyful today.

The biggest reason would have to be this sexy man - the hubby.  He's just so good to me.  Tells me I'm beautiful when I'm feeling fat.  Reminds me of my talent and intelligence when I'm worried about starting this new job.  Knows exactly when I need a hot fudge sundae.  He's just good.  Like real good.  I'm kind of headsprung on his awesomeness these days.


I'm also pretty pumped about learning to shoulder atlas stones last night.  I got a 94 compact ball of concrete from the ground, to my lap then over my shoulder.  Kind of felt like a beast throwing around heavy balls with the big boys.  :)  Please excuse the fact that I look like a mountain woman in this picture.  I swear - I'm generally more attractive than this....but I was doing serious work!


I've been doing a bit of shopping this past week.  My current job allows me to wear jeans to work everyday so my closet is lacking in the business professional department.  My new job is going to be a more business professional environment so I've been collected a few key pieces this week.  I'm *super* excited about my outfit for my first day on Monday.  It's the pant and vest set from NY&Co above.  I have a lavender ruffled shirt to go under the vest.  Feeling like a big girl.  :)


My girlfriends.  Oh thank the Lord above for these women.  It's so nice to have three or four women in my life who I could call at the drop of a hat for anything.  To have friends who I can say, and I quote, "I need to vent.  I'm going to say horrible, hateful things and I need you to forget I said them when we are done with this conversation.  I need you to still believe I'm a sweet, nice person."  And they always do.  I feel so blessed to have women in my life who I can be 100% real with 100% of the time and know that they will love me despite of all my imperfections.  Love them.

So I guess it should come as no shock to me that I am so happy today.  For as you can see - I have much to be happy about!!!  :)
