happiness quotes

Sometimes we forget happiness is a choice.  Life may not always go as we want, but we can choose to be happy.  Enjoy these links and have a great weekend!

1. The letter written by Jennifer Lawrence titled Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars is great advice for women of any age.  Ask for what you are worth…it’s not going to be given to you otherwise.

2. I have had my eye on this Zen frog statue ever since seeing it on a co-worker’s desk.

3. What Can a Girl Do About Cat Calling?

4. Idea for my next Vegas outfit.

5. Adding bacon to anything makes it better.  I may try this bacon topped petite turkey meatloaf with BBQ sauce recipe this week.

Happy Friday message on chalkboard

It’s Friday! I’m happy to say in the last week and a half I have lost 5 pounds!  I have a long way to go still, but I love how fast weight comes off in the first week of a diet because it motivates me to keep going.  I don’t believe in complete deprivation while on diet though so this weekend we may walk over to the Oktoberfest for a beer and pretzel.  The other excitement for the weekend is watching the Dodgers hopefully win the first two games of the playoffs.

Here are some of my favorite things from this week.

1. Another raccoon…this one shows a raccoon that was saved by a family in the Bahamas and likes to play with the family’s dogs.  Apparently rabies doesn’t exist in the Bahamas so it’s ok to have a raccoon as a pet?

2. Asparagus, egg and bacon salad recipe I want to try.

3. A statement coat I have my eye on.

4. Income required to be in the top 10% in different cities.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday on chalkboard with vintage filter

Happy Friday!  Even my cat is excited it is Friday today and has been running around like a kitten all day.  Later today C and I are walking down the street to an Italian restaurant for happy hour.  Saturday we are going to a BBQ festival and Sunday we are making a trek to the valley to shop for a fountain for our courtyard.

Here are some of my favorite things from this week:

1. Who could resist this raccoon using a rock to ask (demand?) for cat food for her babies?

2. My love for suede shoes will never die.  Here is a pair I’m drooling over.

3. I wish the Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail existed when I lived there.

4. Have you ever dreamed of escaping the rat race and running away from it all?  If so, check out my new favorite blog to read – This American Girl

I hope my east coast friends stay dry and don’t get cabin fever while it rains all weekend…have a great weekend!

It's Friday This past week has been a good one.  I saw the Dodgers play the Angels in a spring training game which was hopefully a preview of the Dodgers/Angels World Series I have been waiting for my entire life.  To make the week even better, Chris and I spent a couple of days in Vegas.  We had a great time gambling, enjoying cocktails and seeing Elton John put on an amazing show!  It’s nice to be back in southern California where we can drive to Vegas in four hours.
