{ Making Me Happy }

~ Talks with Mike

~ A cup of coffee {laden with cream and sugar} nearly every day--Mike is a master of the French press!

~ This darling cross-stitch by a fellow blogger who has become a dear friend, in spite of the miles that separate us: Isn't it the cutest thing you have ever seen?! I wear that outfit all the time--and I love that Mike's got Miss Peanut in the baby carrier!

~ A massage and chiropractic adjustment that "fixed" my badly-out-of-whack neck

~ Not throwing up very much :-)

~ This massage bar from Lush...I call it my pregnancy splurge. I slather it on my tummy every day, breathe in the lovely scent of honey and white chocolate, and hope it will help prevent stretch marks!
Mange Too Massage Bar

~ Musing over nursery decor ideas and paint chips

~ Is this not the most endearing doormat you've ever seen?! It makes me smile big-time! {Our previous doormat was stained by the contractors}

~ Cleaning out my makeup collection and throwing away the old, crusty stuff...why do I hang on to old makeup I've stopped using, when I know I'm not going to use it in the future??

~ Skinny chocolate chip buttermilk scones...thank you Pinterest!!


  1. Coffee with lots of cream and sugar... girls must like this! I always drank my coffee black until I was pregnant with Katy Grace and then I always had c&s :) Tim was convinced we were having a girl because of that and sure enough! That cross-stitch is just precious! And that doormat... I'm in love! Where did you find it?

    1. Anns--the doormat is at Bed Bath & Beyond. They didn't have much of a selection for outdoor mats, but it doesn't really matter when there's ONE as cute as that!

  2. A lovely list of happy things! So glad your neck is better and that you enjoy the cross-stich :) (oh- saw that recipe on Pinterest too, it's on my list of 'things to make soon'!)

  3. Can't wait to see what nursery colors and prints you come up with!
