Oh, the little things make all the difference

I love sports (I know you're all thinking "Really?"), but I don't always love when life throws me a curveball... But you know what makes it all better? Panera Bread for lunch. No, seriously. Try it. Have a bad couple of days, and then go to Panera. You just can't be sad here, the food is too good!!! Plus, just the fact that I get to leave during lunch is fantastic for this former teacher!

I had a not so fantastic week, so I thought another happiness entry would make me feel better!
Basketball--Not now so much, I don't like to cross over my seasons, but come this winter, all they way until March (hopefully) even April, I can't get enough of my Cats. And when it's March Madness, I could watch basketball all day. In fact, when I was still a classroom teacher, I wrote a unit called March Madness Math for the sole purpose of getting to watch the games at work! I even got Lindsay to teach it too, and if you know Lindsay, that's a tribute to my persuasiveness, because she hates sports and math! =)
The Beach-Once a year, I need to feel the sand between my toes, put my feet in the water, close my eyes, and just breathe it all in. It really does wonders for the soul!
Books-Old, new, I don't care. I love the way they smell, I love where they take me, I just love them!
Brad Paisley-Funny, cute, musical, the whole package!
Bon Jovi-Some childhood crushes only ge…

Fall Break

I had plans to DO something this Fall Break. I considered going back to Annapolis, going to NC to see my sister, or even just hopping in the car and going to Gatlinburg for a few days. However, an unexpected expense hit my savings account hard, and I just thought it was impractical that I go somewhere. And you know what, I've LOVED this fall break! I got all of my "Fall Break To Do" list (switching out summer clothes for winter ones, cleaning the house, etc) on Sunday so the whole week has just been relaxing, watching some trashy tv and lots of McD's cokes (I'm determined to win the monopoly game!) I realized I don't need to go anywhere or do anything special to have a good break. If you've read my blog for long (or simply read any of the older posts) you know that I've had my struggles with myself and my life, but now I really am happy. And this week to just be off and enjoy life has been fantastic.

The ABCs of Happiness-A

So I am totally stealing this idea from a blogging friend, but I told her I was, so that makes it okay, right? =) I am going through the alphabet listing things with that letter that make me happy. Today I am starting with A (which is a very good place to start if you ask me!)A Autumn (my friend)-Makes me laugh, fills me in on why it's great to be me (ie I don't have to use the garden hose to spray puke out of a car seat), always there for me, loves me even though sometimes I like to talk about sports. She's the greatest. Autumn (the season)-Football, hooded sweatshirts, long-sleeved t-shirts, tailgating, apple cider, Fall Break, crisp smell of cool fall air, sleeping with the windows open... It's my most favoritest season of all. Apples-sliced, whole, caramel, plain, red, yellow, Granny Smith. I don't care. I love apples. Apple pie-Fresh out of the oven with ice cream on top. Wow! Apple cider-A hot mugful on a cool night, nothin' better. Alias -Didn't get h…
