A Healthy Dose of Happy

This post is going to be a hodgepodge of things that made me happy over the last few days. I know next week is going to suck and as a forewarning, I will be mopey as hell, so this weekend is all about things that put a smile on my face. Literally. It’s mostly pictures. And most of them were taken by my friend Amy, who I am so glad is up for a visit right now. We have been friends since since we were freshman in high school and while I hate that another mom had to go through the colicky, milk allergy, cry nonstop, non-sleeping, acid reflux, little turd of a baby too, I am soooo thankful I had someone in the same boat. We became our own little support group and I swear that was the only way I got through those hellacious first six months with my sanity (mostly) intact. She’s really been a lifeline for me the last year and I know I’m lucky to have a friend like that.

Why do I feel like I was giving some sort of acceptance speech? Oh well. Moving on… pictures at the park!

Amy and the kids stayed the night that night, which meant the mamas hit up the wine bottle(s) after they bambinos were snoozing. And hit them up we did…


And now, because I like laughing at myself, I give you my future online dating site profile picture. Please try to contain yourself at the hotness:


That’s right, I *heart* you. The suitors should be lining up outside my door after that. Take a number boys, take a number.

Coming tomorrow…pics of Bug’s 1st birtday party ::sniffle::!!


  1. That post brought a smile to my face, laughter in my heart, and tears to my eyes. A whole mix of emotions...might be our (bc we have so much in common, might as well throw in one more thing) upcoming christmas. I love that you can laugh at yourself and share that picture with the world. I am so grateful we have little shits that brought us back together as best's a gift from R & B (new nickname!) I will cherish forever.

  2. Yep... that is totally hot!
    Plus all the pics at the park are so nice..they look professional too.

    Glad you had lots of fun, sometimes life can suck real bad so it's good to enjoy the times you can as much as possible, so you can have energy for the bad.

    Have a great Sunday, we are new followers from Relax & Surf Sunday!

  3. I think the men are knocking on your door right now with that last pic!! You better go answer it..LOL! A bottle of wine always helps when you know you are going to have a bad week. The pics of the kids are too cute!

  4. I love that B&W picture. It's seriously sweet. There is a decent amount of therapy that lingers at the bottom of a bottle of wine...I find it sometimes too, you know, when I feel like I need therapy, which is often...enough.
