This episode of Happiness is brought to you by the Letter C...

As I begin the third in the things that make me happy series, I can't help but hear Cookie Monster singing "C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me!" and while I do partially agree with that (who doesn't love a good Oreo--or three--and milk?), there is much more that makes me happy that starts with the letter C. So, for your viewing pleasure, here we go (in no particular order)Carbs-Bread, pasta, refined sugar. I'll take it all! If I had to be on the Adkins diet, I think I would commit suicide. Life without carbs is a life not worth living...Confidence-I'd say that for the better part of the last decade, I didn't have one ounce of the stuff, but now I do so Watch out World! I never want to go back...College GameDay-Especially the football version. While I love my Cats and there is nothing like spending the day at Commonwealth Stadium with 70,000 of my friends, I also love when it's an away game and I can curl up on the couch with my coffee…

A Month of ME!

Since I was consumed with the stomach flu on my 30th birthday, and never really got a chance to celebrate, I have decided that I will spend the last 30 days of being 30 celebrating! Yesterday I went to dinner with Nicole, a great friend who I don't get to see nearly as much as I'd like, and tonight I am playing Bunko. Saturday there will be Game Night, and Sunday is still to be decided. But I think this will be really fun!

You can't make this stuff up...

Setting: Erin’s office
Participants: Erin; Jimmy (her boss)
Time: 12:35
Setting the scene: Jimmy has come into Erin’s office to help her with a problem on a web program they use that he is very familiar with. They begin discussing that afternoon’s training:

Jimmy: I am so busy today. I have a meeting at 2 that I need to go prep for, and another meeting at 3:50. And then what time is your training?
Erin: Umm, YOUR training is at 4. (slowly realizes he said he has a meeting at 3:50)... WAIT! Am I giving this training? I thought you were giving it!
Jimmy: I thought you were giving it...
Erin: I don’t know how to do what the training is about yet. You haven’t taught me.
Jimmy: I can’t get out of that meeting today. I’ll email you directions, you might want to see if you can figure it out before the training starts...

Erin (to herself): I. Need. A. Drink.

Stupid serving size...

My parents stopped by my house on their way to pick up a friend at the Louisville airport, where my mom left my favorite homemade pastry on my kitchen counter. (Crescent roll crusts, cream cheese inside, cinnamon and sugar on top--Yum!) When I got home from work, I ate what I thought was a reasonable amount (especially considering I could eat the entire pan), a little less than an eighth of the pie pan. I mean, if it really WAS a pie, wouldn't you cut it into eight pieces? Then I went to the Kraft website to find the nutrition information (because apparently I am glutton for punishment) and was pleasantly suprised that it was only 170 calories. Then I noticed that the recipe makes 24 servings. Are you kidding me? I want to meet the person who can only eat 1/24 of that yummy flakey cream cheesy goodness. Now I feel like I need to do some cardio or something. How fast do I need to click the buttons on the remote in order to burn calories?
