Reading Makes My Heart Smile

Currently reading :
How to Talk to a Widower by Jonathon Tropper
* i am sooo into this book, i've read two of his other books and i just LOVE the way he writes. Have you read any of his books? If not you should!


Looking foward to reading:
It Sucked and Then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita by Heather Armstrong
*I can't wait to get my hands on this book, i follow her blog, dooce & her sense of humor cracks me up.
Im really looking foward to reading about how she dealt with her post partum deppression and seeing how she manages to inject her trademark sarcasm into a difficult story.

A smile confuses an approaching frown.

SMILE, it could cheer someone up, or further annoy a cranky, nasty pants. Either way it's fun for you!

Clear the Clutter in Your Mind

Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry NEVER fixes anything.
Mary Heminway

He who fears he shall suffer, already suffers what he fears.

I can be such a worry wart at times, i think my mind actually searches for things to fret about.

I think these two quotes reinforce what we allready know to be true.

Don't let worries waste your time.

Tiny Treat

Today i did something i haven't done in quite some time.

Over two months actually.

What is it i haven't done since the beginning of January you ask?

I made a purchase!

I've been supertight with $$ lately.

Sadly, frivolous weekly shopping, with the exception of grocery shopping, which i do really enjoy ;), has ceased.

Buut, today every single one of my classes was cancelled, i had to find something to do with my time...

So i browsed a few stores and made one tiny little purchase.


This bright green cardigan is perfect to kick off the beginning of spring!

It was on clearance for 10 bucks at Old Navy, So i got a much needed shopping fix with no damage to my budget! :) woooohoooo

Spring Clean

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.

-William Morris

* It's spring cleaning time!
*I'm going to keep these words in mind while i attempt to declutter, i suffer from a bit of the pack rat
syndrome (handed down from my chotchky (sp?) lovin parents) and have some trouble throwing things
* Is it hard for you to part with random odds & ends as well?

I Enjoy Quiet

I have issues.

Said issues are with little tiny noises most people might not even notice.

I notice.

In this morning's class i had a girl next to me who sniffled and texted the ENTIRE class. I was trying hard to concentrate on reviewing for my midterm, but really all i could think of was how i wanted to toss her cell phone out the door and hand her a tissue... harsh huh??

sniffle sniffle clickclickclickclickclickclickclick sniffle click sniffle sniffle clickclick
*God help me if this girl sits next to me during the test and pulls this crap again.... i really don't think i can be held responsible for my actions!!
Please excuse my rant & feel free to tell me what irk's you!

Where's Your Head?

No matter where you go or what you do, you live your entire life within the confines of your head.

-Terry Josephson


You control your mindset, so where do you want to be? :)

Things I Love Thursday


Photo: Rakeem Cunningham

Talking to my cats as if they are human
*I know I'm not the only one who does this! Rob is waiting for the day they reply to me... ;)

Peanut Butter
* No explanation needed right? I especially love it with apples & bananas!

* I like words, i like new and interesting words, it's fun ;) try it out!

Shopping @ Whole Foods
* I have a serious thing for fancy schmancy supermarkets, everyone is so polite and helpful there. I really enjoy exploring the aisles, for new & interesting foods. (have you ever been to a wegmans?? it's superfun there but sadly there are none anywhere close to me)

Stacy's Pita Chips
* OH MAN these are delish! I bought two bags of the multigrain ones (@ whole foods one sale for $5, is it just me or does $5 for two little bags of chips not really seem like a "sale" ?)anyways, the bags disappeared astonishingly fast, i may or may not have eatin an ENTIRE bag in ONE day!
