5 things that make me happy

5 things that make me happy

1. My family- I’ll be honest my family has some extreme disfunction but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The bond I share with each member has certainly had ups and downs but doesn’t that make you understand and appreciate everything relationship more

2. My home- The hours I work and the committees I am a part of keep me away for long hours but every time I walk through the door I feel a sense of peace and maybe the urge to pick up the pile of dirty clothes I somehow cannot manage to get into the hamper, but mostly peace! It’s nice to have a wonderful place to call home

3. New shoes- Let’s be real we all want fun new things from time to time and I’m no different. I’ve been dying to break out these new sparkly shoes, i mean every girl needs some sparkle in life!


4. Puppies- I subject Dino Boy to daily high pitched squeals and conversations about adopting precious pups from the shelter websites…. one of these days I hope we can bring one of these guys home


5.  Cuddles with blankets and an amazing man- There is an incredible sense of security when I climb into bed, pile on 18 blankets and snuggle up with Dino Boy and The Office reruns. At the end of the day I know my life is complete. 


The MLB All Star Game

It’s that time of year again for the mid-summer classic! Baseball has always been one of my favorite sports since both my father and husband are fanatics. Unlike most all star games, the MLB game actually has some importance tied to it: the winner gets home field advantage for the World Series. 

The past few years have been dominated by the American League (go Red Sox!) who have wone two in a row and have won 14 of the last 18. The game will feature the best players around the league teaming together to put on a great show. 

Here’s a preview of some of the players in the game:
