Making Me Happy This Week–3/11/2018

20180308-2018-03-08 21.28.53_blog

This past Sunday was my birthday!  Due to daylight saving time, I only had 23 hours of birthday, ha ha.  I made the most of it.  Another trip around the sun and I couldn’t be more grateful for my family and friends. That’s what life is all about.

Here’s what’s making me happy this week:

  • Talking to my sister Joyce on the phone on my birthday.
  • My birthday lunch at Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad.  Some may think it strange that’s where I went for birthday lunch.  But I’ve always wanted to try this deli ever since they catered Oktoberfest at my work.  20180311-2018-03-11 13.05.52_blog20180311-2018-03-11 13.30.41_blog
  • Ordering stuff from the internet, using my bonus money. 
  • My new Old Navy denim jacket.  I’ve discovered that since I don’t like to button my jackets, it looks nicer and more fitted if I get one size smaller than my normal size.  So I got a small in this jacket and I like the fit much more.  Returned the medium.  20180309-2018-03-09 19.12.28_blog
  • Taking naps.  Seriously the best.
  • Dinner with Dejah & Roby at Tasty Noodle House.  Miss them so much since they moved away!  Awesome conversation and great food.20180305-2018-03-05 19.16.25_blog20180305-2018-03-05 18.28.06_blog
  • Signing up for the PMT Spring 2018 Style Challenge and buying the few pieces of clothing that I didn’t have yet.  I love spring colors and will LOVE Audrey telling me what to wear everyday for 5 weeks starting on April 2nd!  You can find out more about it here.
  • Lunch with the ladies at work at Cheesecake Factory.
  • Chris Botti concert at CA Center for Arts in Escondido.  Was a nice week night out.20180308-2018-03-08 19.42.11_blog20180308-2018-03-08 21.28.53_blog
  • Todd’s “Cake-Off” contest at work, and his chocolate prune cake entry.  He saved a piece for me.  Todd squared off against Meenal.  Todd won for taste, and Meenal won for decoration.  Todd does not decorate his cakes, but they are always super-tasty!28872650_149155772422698_2232493428883587072_o_blog28958662_10155105970442511_1595857298362007298_n_blog20180309-2018-03-09 16.51.38_blog
  • Doing a Jessica Smith workout.  I haven’t worked out regularly in two months, for various reasons.  Felt great to move my body.20180310-2018-03-10 09.58.58_blog
