Yesterday morning I woke up before the sunrise to go downtown for a CT scan and for an appointment with a gastroenterologist [more on that another day]- I owe a big schpank you to my Dear for waking up at 5AM to go with me…  BTW: the barium contrast that you’re required to drink for CT scans is NOT pleasant- you have a choice of a chalky, white paste that looks like Elmer’s glue OR a clear liquid that tastes like moldy, stale water…  Which one would you choose?!

Thankfully, the afternoon was filled with many things that made me happy 🙂

Happy #1: A mani/ pedi date with my momma…

sparkly red on my fingers for Christmas

and sparkly black on my toes for New Year’s [chubby + long toes = beat feet]

Happy #2: A Teet lunch date with my Dear…

they have the best salad bar and baguettes in town [as displayed, courtesy of my Dear]!

Happy #3: Shopping…

the mall is always so beautiful during the holiday’s [minus all last-minute mayhem]

Happy #4: Seeing Mission Impossible


i’ll sit for 2+ hours to watch good-looking men climb buildings, crash cars, and chase after “bad” guys

Happy #5: Watching Modern Family with dinner [it was hilarious]!


And the happiness has continued through to today- there’s something about the holiday season…

Happy #6: Saving $35 at the grocery store and having a kitchen full of food…

i love shopping sales [buy one, get one free Fresca or ice cream? oh yeah, i’m sold]

Happy #7: Blackberries…

i thought blackberries were a summer fruit?  regardless, these were BERRY good [baha]

Happy #8:  Another Teet lunch…

same meal, different setting

Happy #9: Watching YouTube videos of Christmas light shows…



girl look at that [house], i [light up], girl look at that [house], i [light up]!

Happy #10: We’re having burrito night- it’s far from the traditional Christmas Eve dinner, but it’s fun!


Question:  Do you watch Modern Family?  What’s your fave season?

Question:  What’s your traditional Christmas Eve dinner?

      Girl, you gotta treat yourself to a mani/ pedi- ultimate relaxation [and festive for the holidays]! Sounds like we should totes hit up the stores- two sale shoppers could be dangerous ;P

  2. I hope that your CT scan doesn’t show anything bad! I had one when I was younger, and it was not pleasant for sure. I’m glad you had a ton of awesome things going on to make the rest of your Christmas Eve better. Merry Christmas!
