(Man, what a week, right? Still sending good thoughts to everyone in Boston as well as Texas.)

Some things that have made me smile this week...

It's Garrett's birthday weekend! I've been known to uh... kind of make a big deal about my own birthday. But I also love making a big deal about other people's birthdays. Especially the love of my life, right? This weekend is gonna be awesome.

Free coffee! I redeemed my free coffee from my own birthday today for the drive, and it was the best caramel macchiato I think I've ever had. (Double points because I had my reusable cup, right?)

Gettin' tan, man. I took a picture of myself a few weeks ago and my skin was glowing it was so pale. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but only slight, okay?! Anyway, I immediately trucked it over to Ulta to pick up some Jergens Natural Glow, and have been using it for a few weeks. They changed something because now it smells amaaaazing, so that was a nice surprise. Anyway, I don't glow in the dark anymore, so that's pretty exciting.

My Dad is back home! He was in Vegas on a business trip, but he got back last night. It doesn't matter how old I get, I still like it when my dad is close by. Sorrynotsorry =)

I packed in advance for my trip to Virginia. Yeah, this shouldn't be a big deal. But after two trips to VA with no underwear and a trip to the beach where I packed three open cardigans and no tank tops to go underneath them, I decided I really needed to prepare better. So I did! And I gotta say, I'm pretty freakin' proud of myself. (It helps that it was soooo easy to leave this morning because I wasn't running around haphazardly into a suitcase and hoping it all went together once I got to Virginia.)

Wine and a relaxing (and quiet) Friday night. This one might be the most exciting... Garrett is working for a few hours, which means I have a little bit of time to relax, drink some wine, and.... not do anything else. At all. I'm beyond stoked.
Despite everything that's happening lately, I hope you've all had a great week, and an even better weekend!!

Girl I need to get some Jergans! It doesn't smell like it used too then I'm in! I love the starbucks tumbler, have you seen the pins with the glitter tumblers? Have you thought about doing it?
