Makin me Happy

I can't tell you enough how beneficial this is to me. Especially after a difficult week, it's so good to sit down and really think about the good things in our lives.

My #1 this week is My husband, for the Awesome father he is. I see other Dad's shirking all parenting responsibilities to their wives and not really taking joy in their children and it makes me sad for them. Mike is Amazing with Abby, bathes, feeds and diapers as much as I do. He Aww's the same way I do at new and cute things she does. I'm truly thankful she has that to grow up with.
And the spring in this picture makes me ache for winter to end!

Mother's Day out is super high on my happy list. I LOVE Abby's teachers, I could be friends with them outside school, they rock! It's also super cheap. She goes twice a week for $20; you can't beat that! And most importantly, she LOVES "going to school"! She gets super excited which helps me feel good about it.

This amazing carrot cake I had this week... OMGosh. It was AHHH-mazing!

Putting my Pinktastic Swaptastic pkg together this week made me Happy. I really hope Sara likes the things I chose for her. Finding pink items was more of a challenge than I anticipated with it being Valentine's season and one or two items aren't completely pink, but I hope the "girliness" makes up for it!

In conjunction with that, I'm happy that Nashville has a 24/7 post office! I sprained my pinky finger (#&%@!!) yesterday and finally had to allow hubby to help me wrap the gifts and we overslept today, so the 24 hour postoffice is a lifesaver!

Last of all, I'm happy to live in Nashville where there are SOO many awesome things to do. Today, thanks to a special event, we are going to the Country Music Hall of Fame... for FREE! Awesome!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
