Cheer up

Sometimes when I'm in a funk I can't get out of, I have to just take a step back from the big picture that's freaking me out, and focus instead on the little things that make me smile. If I had an iPhone (next year!), this would be an Instagram-heavy post. But I don't and it's not. Either way, here are some of the little things that helped me get through this week.

How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. I know I'm a little late to this bandwagon, but I finished the first season last night. This show really cracks me up.

Spazcat being spazzy. She's ridiculous.

New nail polish. I got this (I Only Wear Vintage from OPI's Sephora line) with a Sephora gift card that a bloggy friend sent me. Thanks, Ally :)

Bright red toes. Spring has (basically) sprung!

Flowers. Specifically the beautiful tulips that are blooming in our front yard. So pretty.

And things I don't have photos of:
- Hanging out with the girls who live upstairs. They're awesome and they can always cheer me up, no matter how down I'm feeling.
- Sunshine. Need I say more?
- Matt coming home from a business trip. I stayed up till nearly midnight last night waiting for him. So. Worth. It.
- Sending my little sister wedding magazines in the mail and knowing it will make her smile.

There. Feeling better already. I even got dressed this morning, instead of just throwing on slacks and a plain button-down (which is what I've been wearing all week). One day at a time.


  1. I love your tulips and kitty! I need to paint my toe nails and red may be the color. we have family coming this weekend so laundry and cleaning are on the agenda too. Hang in there!

  2. cheer up friend! Hugs from canada!

  3. Laughing so hard at Spazzcat, love it!!

    Hope things are looking up soon!

  4. That picture of your cat is incredible. she seems like such fun. Very pretty flowers too. Keep focusing on the awesome little things and you'll feel better before you know it :) *hugs*

  5. Sister friend. You are going to cry so much when you get to the end of the road of HIMYM on Netflix. Kamryn and I started it, and couldn't stop. We finished ALL the episodes they have available in like 4 weeks. I laughed, I cried, I got way too emotionally attached to every character. Kamryn and I have been trying to perfect the Lilly and Marshall high's really hard.

    OH, I am so excited you're watching this now.
