Because really simple things amuse me, and I have nothing exciting to blog about, I'm sharing the things that made me smile this week!
To start with, Hubs bought me this for Mother's Day:
How can you NOT smile at that???
My Mom lost an inch off her height and then found it again... this made me laugh! Chemo may take hair, but it can make you an inch taller, who knew?? *wink*
I came across some old emails from an email friend of years past. Re-reading them put a huge smile on my face!!!
It is funny how I classify friends since the web... I have old work friends, web friends, bloggy friends, school friends (which are also web friends), Childhood friends, K-Moms friends, Email friends, Coaching friends, CrossFit Online friends and in-real-life friends.
Before the web, we either had friends or we didn't.... Now I feel like I must classify them since the people I chat with on-line I may never meet in real life and vice/versa. Not that it matters to label them, but remember the first part of this post: "Really simple things amuse me"
Waking up in the morning to my dog sideways taking up 90% of the bed, and me tucked in to a corner 1/2 off the bed, makes me wonder how that happens while I'm sleeping. Then pondering this thought of him scooting me over in my sleep, makes me smile.
Hearing the husband admit that I can do more push-ups than him. Now THAT was pretty funny.
Getting a text from my Step-Dad, telling me all about his Green Smoothie adventures was AWESOME! But I also got a text from an old friend who finally purchased a blender and was making her very own smoothies. Then asked for recipes by a Facebook friend wanting to make them too. It was a Green Smoothie week all around and THAT makes me happy!
Stopped at a casino on our way back from Michigan to see what could happen with $5. On his first pull, the husband thought he won $200. Turned out he was at a penny machine.. But he did win two bucks.
Watching a CrossFit friend get a ONE HANDED HANDSTAND for the first time was incredibly awesome.
Watching my Mother-n-law's face when I did a two handed handstand in her garden against a narrow tree with cactus all around was priceless
A CrossFit friend told me of their dream that had me in it, where I was making a Kale Pizza. If only that was real life and I knew how to make a Kale Pizza.
Got a note from someone that worked for my Uncle many many years ago but is now a Raw Foodie and works at the cancer center where my mom visits. How cool is that?
And totally out of the blue, I got a Facebook message from a Veggie friend I used to work with over 10 years ago that I haven't seen in about 10 years.
Needless to say, this was a week with a whole lot to smile about. Even if I'm the only person that finds these events smile-worthy... You have to at least smile at this:
