Movin' on up!

I have been feeling down. Nothing in particular has me there but that's where I have chosen to be, down. They say it's a choice, right? Either way, I don't like it. While I feel like I am on my way back up, it was important for me to give myself a few reminders of what's making me happy lately:


Wonderful recipes marked & ready for me to try:



Old photos recently found, of me:



And my mom:




The "Perfectly Chocolatey" Chocolate Frosting, so easy to make you'll never want to buy store bought, recipe here:



Seeing Tristan's face & name in a printed book:



And being able to picture what he'll look like in a suit some years from now:



A wine glass swap & gift from Casey:



Meeting a blogger friend, Ronda, for the 1st time & enjoying one another's company as much as we do eachother's blogs
:


Ronda & Me


Working so close to home & school where I can have lunch dates with this little guy:



And lastly, to you all - I am sure you know the feeling, when you're just not quite right, yet you know you'd be worse if you didn't have bloggy friends & wonderful inspirations just a click away!

Mommy Mac said...

Hey mama!!!

No down and outs anymore!

I am pouring a cocktail in your honor as we speak!

Getting ready to make hot ham-n-cheese sandwiches steamed with crunchy bacon and make homemade potato chips in the deep fryer...

You bring that there chocolate cake over for dessert and we will call in even!!!

Being down is no fun...just remember it is the acknowledgement of being down that lets you know that you remember what if feels like to be on top of the world happy!

Cheers!!

Hi there!
Don't be down. I agree with everything Froggity said, just keep reading that over and over. But I do know what your feeling. You just can't put your finger on it. That is how I was for the last 2 days.
I love your post, and your mom is beautiful. You were so cute too!
Make something out of that chocolate bible----that might help!

XOXO

Brenda said...

Hope you are feeling better soon, maybe something out of that chocolate bible will help. . . .for me its usually a great cup of coffee that helps.

When you're surrounded by all of those wonderful things, it would be hard to stay down for long. :)

HI just popped over after the kids are bed to SAY HI and let you know that this was a really good healthy post. Take care!

Joyce said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog and Spanx story. I wish the header was my yard but I took the photo last winter at the Philadelphia Flower show and the theme was Tablescapes so it made for a perfect header photo. If you are in Philly when the flower show is there make sure you go even if you do not garden as it is incredible. I am off now to whip up some pumpkin woopie pies that I have been eyeing since before the wedding:)
