Hi, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a fabulous weekend! Mine has been really great. In fact, the past 24 hours have been especially nice, so I thought I’d write a post about what has made me happy. Here goes!
Picking the winning horse in the Kentucky Derby. Last night, Mal and I went over to Elizabeth and Nick’s condo to watch the Kentucky Derby. Before the race started, we each picked a horse to win. I picked “I’ll Have Another” because #19 is one of my lucky numbers, and I like to boozeface on occasion, so it made perfect sense. “I’ll Have Another” ended up coming from behind to win the Kentucky Derby, so it was really exciting!
Drinking a Victory Hop Devil Ale. When it comes to beer, I was a never a huge hop fan, but I’m slowly starting to enjoy more hoppy beers. This one was awesome.
Enjoying some really amazing sushi at Owl Station with some really amazing friends. After watching the Kentucky Derby and enjoying a beer, Mal, Elizabeth, Nick, and I headed to Owl Station for dinner.
The sushi as outstanding (I really think it’s some of the best around) and the dinner conversation was even better””lots of laughs!
Watching the “pug mayor” make his rounds at the dog park this morning. I absolutely love watching Murphy excitedly run around the park from dog to dog and person to person meeting and greeting everyone. He’s totally in his element, so I can’t help but smile.
Seeing bright green leaves on the trees at the dog park. Spring has officially sprung!
Relaxing during a massage at Elements this afternoon. My upper back was tight, crunchy, and knotty from some lactic acid build up, so I booked myself a massage this afternoon. The masseuse (Josephine) worked most of the knots out of my back, so it feels so much better now. I also feel totally relaxed.
Enjoying my first visit to Fresh Market. Oh my goodness, this place is the bomb! It’s gorgeous inside, there’s a candy bar, they sell beer and wine, and the prices were quite a cheaper than Whole Foods. I’m in love! I’ll definitely be shopping here in the future!
Donating a bunch of old clothes to the Goodwill. I went through my closet and donated a bunch of old clothes to the Goodwill. It felt great to pare down my wardrobe, especially since I don’t wear half of what’s in there!
Moving our patio furniture from the basement to our back porch. This means it’s warm enough to eat dinner outside on the deck. Woohoo!
