TOLT: Things that make me smile so big!

Hey y'all!  It's THURSDAY.  I can't believe it.  We have a huge Halloween event at school tomorrow, and I have had some pretty hefty responsibilities around the place.  I've been trying to focus on things that are more positive, and though I've been (girl time) cranky, I've been making the best out of stinky situations and when facing challenges.  With that spirit in mind, here's our #TOLT list!

1.  Art therapyIt's for big kids, too!  Read all about it!  I don't know the last time I sat down and did something crafty, but this is the perfect scientifically proven gateway to some stress-relieving goodness.

2.  Don't just find the silver lining, find the end of the rainbow!  My Mom and Aunt recently drove from Dallas to various parts of Arizona to visit my cousin.  My Mom told me that just when she was thinking that there wasn't anything to see during a long stretch of road, God showed her this.:)

Also, she's still learning how to use her new iPhone.  I'm super proud of her for her first phone upgrade in close to six years.

3.  Um, yeah.  About that...

4.  Mine and my work husband's Halloween costumes have arrived.  We're pretty stoked.

5.  Running.  Duh.

6.  Good food.  Good beer.

7.  Running and good food and good beer.

8.  Being a volleyball Coach.  Our season is almost over, and there are girls' kneepads everywhere in my car.  I don't even mind.:)


10.  This guy.<3  I don't feel like I give him enough cred here.  So there ya' go, Kid.


<3 Have a splendid day, friends.  A fun weekend is almost here!
Tell me THREE THINGS that made you smile this week!

Have you tried coloring lately?  It's all the rage!  Thoughts?

QUICK:  What's the farthest you've ever run?


  1. You always make me smile. You are like a gigantic brain hug :D and yeeeessss please soon. I will be back and not traveling everywhere this weekend! xoxoxoxoxoxox

  2. You always make me smile. You are like a gigantic brain hug :D and yeeeessss please soon. I will be back and not traveling everywhere this weekend! xoxoxoxoxoxox

  3. I've always loved coloring and may have monopolized my kids' coloring books when they were little. YES eat all the cake! Happy Halloween Eve Eve!

  4. My dad recently got an iPhone and he's been texting me. He always signs his texts : Dad. Cracks me up and warms my heart every single time!!

  5. Hahaha as I just get done seeing a media splash about how meat causes cancer...
    What a fun post! Definitely nice to get a giggle after I just cried reading Erin ' s inside job's post. You just saved me from devouring some chocolate! Lol

  6. I bought one of those adult colouring books, but I honestly think prefer the ones for kids. The adult ones just have way too many tiny details that drive me insane. And the bigger lines in the kids ones mean I can use wax crayons :P

  7. This was cute! Finding out I didn't need my crutches anymore made me smile HUGE

  8. I just love your girl-mance (female equivalent of bromance?) with Susie! It's so cute! We all need a friend like that. I haven't colored in a long time, but I try to do at least one craft a month. Definitely keeps me happy and I'm so proud when I end up with something cool!

  9. hehehe, love this, and I'm totally with you on good food and art therapy! I used to volunteer at a children's hospital in the therapeutic recreation/child life department, and that was definitely one of my favorite ways to spend time with em'! (Yay for having an excuse to do arts + crafts as an adult!) I'm glad they have such awesome coloring books now too! *-*
