for those that stumble upon this and may not know, monday funday is a blog post that entails posting a few things that made me smile during the week or two preceding my previous post. the basis is really just to share and spread things that make me/us happy. i have been trying to get others to participate and i think i roped in my first victim, ahem! ruby rideout 🙂 so hopefully we’ll see her slinging some of her happy items around the www soon.

anyway, this week is an extra special start as i spent my weekend in phoenix for…
1. girl time.
let me say this; i have an amazing husband whom is truly my best friend (well….. most days) *wink* and two amazing kids i cannot live without *cough* (ok. again, most days) but when it comes to female relationships in my life, i cannot stress enough the importance of these bonds. i have been so blessed as i have aged with some real astonishing women and this sadly has not always been the case in my life. but what i can say is the wait has been above and beyond worth it to have such incredible women as friends now. i came home yesterday with one overly full heart. thank you ruby! 🙂

2. asian markets.
holy hecklesticks. this weekend we browsed an asian supermarket (my first time) and i think i died and went to heaven for a short while. it was huge! i saw vegetables i had no idea even existed. aisles and aisles of newness to feast my eyes on. i left with some amazing items and have already begun my feasting.
3. new little people.
i became an aunt to a new little guy this week. my sister-in-law and brother-in-law had a their baby, walter david doublin on friday. yay for newbie doublins! so exciting, just the thought of a whole new person experiencing life for the first time. i have seen so many past clients and friends as well share their exciting news of baby announcements and births that it has been a bit overwhelming but in the most wonderful way. ahhhh.
4. heated seats.
so i rented this car for my road trip and i totally splurged on one that had heated seats. i twitch a little admitting this but im a sucker for those things. i rode probably the entire way with it on. here’s to happy rumps!
i am a pretty hardcore this american life fan. i am even pretty convinced that my soul could shrivel up and die without this show. yeah. so radiolab is really giving it a run for its money. fan-flippin-tastic show! highly recommend!
6. trader joe’s pumpernickel pretzel sticks.
i just discovered these and i might need therapy.

let’s dig right in this week shall we?

1. good deeds / paying it forward.
the older i get the more and more prevalent it is for me to do things for others. aside from sounding ridiculously cliche by stating how great it feels to do these things it really just screams out to me that it’s what we should be doing. part of life. i like win/wins and this is nothing but full of pure this.
2. aquarians.
birthdays are pretty cool no? well not only did my husband gain another year in age but two brother-in-laws and a mother-in-law and a mom up next. i have a thing for aquarians.
3. boston baked beans.
well i have to put a stipulation on this one. IF they are fresh, they pretty much rock your world.
4. gardening / farming.
so i have this deep soul desire to be a farmer. its true its true. don’t laugh. i bought a homestead book, a seed sprouter, a butt load (technical term) of organic, non-gmo seeds and i have a growing list of desires. chickens, goats, a greenhouse … yeah. now i need land. minor details. lol.
5. dorking out.
i really stand by this. the other night i was told, “whoa, you really just let your dork fly out.” damn right!!!!!!
6. moments like these:
my daughter swears she knows how to shuffle as in …. “everyday i’m shufflin!” i say really? we refer to you tube to verify. next thing i know lmfao is shakin our butts. although i swear shufflin is just a glorified or not-so-glorified version of the running man (80’s people am i right?)
ok song of the week!!!! i am dying to post this one. i have listened to it an embarrassingly amount of times in a row. enjoy!!!
