Simple Things That Make Me Happy


Sorry if you thought I was doing a giveaway. I just wanted to talk about giveaways.

Forgive me?

I’ve gone through a lot of my Google Reader. The ones that I read always haven’t been touched. Ironic, huh? Because those I read in depth and comment most of the times.

I realized I missed A LOT of giveaways. Is the beginning of August the giving month? I am now depressed that I’ve missed out on some great ones. But then again there’s one like the IPad that I didn’t enter in because I don’t feel the need to enter. I rather someone else that really wants it, wins it! So I’ve entered in none so far.



It’s always great to see old friends, now acquaintances, doing well.

One of my old high school buddies just signed with the Royals a few days ago in the MiLB. For those that don’t know, that’s the Kansas City’s Burlington Royals in Minor League Baseball. Cool, huh?

I like hearing good news and I’m so happy for him. He’s grown so much. One day he’s going to get there and I’ll be able to point at the telly and say, “I knew him in high school!” I’m pretty sure I have a few pictures with us in it from those disposable camera days and his autograph in my yearbook.



I am super excited for Sissy and Brett! We’ve been talking about dresses, venues, music, and other happy stuff. They want it simple with lots of dancing.

I wish I was a Wedding Planner … or better yet Party Planner. Seems like SO much fun. Lots of organizing and all that jazz!

Oh and lately I’ve been remodeling some things in the house. Like my bedroom. My bedroom kind of looks like an office now and I joke, “Come into my office!” when Mum walked into my room today and we talked about changing some things up in the master bedroom. Hope Dad doesn’t mind the changes that will be made soon!



I’ve been foam rolling my back whenever it aches a bit. Or wherever else when I watch telly.

It’s really been helping me. Especially with those long hours at the desk in front of the computer.

Speaking of … I’ve been watching some POP Pilates videos and I think I’ll start those first and see where they’ll take me. They aren’t too long so it seems will fit in my work schedule perfectly. Fingers crossed.

If you know any POP Pilates workouts, let me know! Smile

Happy Sunday!

Want to hear a funny story? No? Well tooooooo bad.

An old friend of mine who I haven’t really talked to since three years ago (?) just caught up a little on Facebook. Oh the joys of social media. And she told me she has a blog and all that other jazz. Surprise! ME TOO! You didn’t know that huh? Anyway, I told her I had one too but that I wasn’t ready to share. And she understood but will be willing to read it once I was comfortable. Thanks, Dhvani. I’ll keep that in mind! Smile

Then I did what any normal person would do … I Google’d myself with keywords that connect to me. And found out I have a Blogspot. Which I started in 2009. And where I was actually funny. I guess it was easier to let my sarcasm show up in my writing more back then.


Anyway, Sonja and I had plans to meet up at Rudy’s for lunch. I love it because it’s only a good 10 minutes from my house. As I was driving, I got stuck in traffic. Not on the freeway or anything. On a street. Why? Because everyone was waiting at the drive through of Chic-Fil-A. Ridiculous. Get out of the damn car.

Sonja and I got to catch up for a good 2 1/2 hours. Everything from boys to school to work to family to random crap. We only see each other two times a year. But only get to catch up once a year. I’m lucky to have friendships like this.


After we said our goodbyes I walked around Wal-Mart. I got use to walking around after eating in Hong Kong so I’m trying to keep up with that. I don’t know how that’ll work once I start my job though.

But … I finally bought a foam roller!

It’s from Gold’s Gym the 3-in-1 Massage Roll.

  • 18” High Density Massage Roll Layer
  • 18” Low Density Massage Roll Layer
  • 18” Rolling Massage Stick
  • Instructional DVD

Hot guy not included … boo.

It’s wrapped in cellophane and as nasty as it sounds, I tried it out on my back. If it didn’t work, I was going to return it. Don’t judge me. I don’t care if it was the right form or not or if it was the right layer but my back feels better. So I’m keeping it! I’m excited to roll every part of my body so all the pain goes away and better my muscles! Hopefully this will also mean, less injuries for me. Fingers crossed!
