Not only was today a holiday, so I got to have a three day weekend! Today was extra special because I got to talk to two of my favorite people in the ENTIRE world! My sister and my brother! My sister is living in San Diego right now doing an internship in stem cell research and my brother is living in Finland, studying abroad until May. They are two incredible people and I am so lucky to be able to call them my family! It made me so happy to be able to chat with them today! I miss them both so much but no matter how long we go without talking we can always start right were we left off.
Happy Girl, that's me =)

Thought I would leave you all with one of my favorite quotes: Hope you're all having a wonderful Monday!

So What Wednesday...

So following suit and linking up with Life After I Dew I decided on join in on So What Wednesday..

So What if I drink my morning cup of coffee all day long and I actually think I may enjoy it more when it's ice cold at the end of the day.

So What if I fell asleep at 7:30 on my couch last night and still had a hard time getting up this morning for work.

So What if I have papers to grade and I am writing this blog instead.

So What if some nights I'd rather have a bowl of cereal than make anything substantial for dinner.

So What if I have set the dryer to wrinkle release the same load of clothes 3 times now and have yet to fold them.

What are you saying SO WHAT to?


Neighborly Love

Yesterday in our we had a terrible wind storm and unfortunately it damaged our neighbors fence. It broke off the post and left half her fence laying broken on the ground.
As luck would have it her husband happens to be out of town this week and she was unable to move the broken fence piece on her own. So she came to our house and my husband and I were happy to help her.

Between the three of us we were able to move the broken fence piece into her yard and fence off her yard with chicken wire to avoid any animals getting into her yard, given that her pool is unfenced. Of course we were more than happy to help her and did it purely because we feel so blessed to live in our wonderful little community, but tonight she showed up at our door with hot banana bread and it is to die for!

We are so lucky to have such wonderful neighbors!
What about you? Do you have great neighbors?

A Woman's World

As I was purusing blogs I follow, I came across this email on Kelly's blog @ Kelly's Avenue, it was too funny not to share!
