happy things.


After over six months of sickness-free living, I'm a little under the weather with a cold that has me sneezing and blowing my nose every five minutes. 

My comfort in times like these? That Tom Hanks fell for a congested Meg Ryan as she walked around her brownstone in a trenchcoat, stuffing dirty Kleenex in her pocket. Colds can be cute, apparently. 

This brings me happiness. 

This, and these lovely things: 

Cheers reruns on Netflix. I love me some Sam Malone. 
(And the theme song never fails to make me smile.)

Business trips to Destin, and saltwater in the air. 

Driving with the windows rolled down. 

Mild, almost fall-like temperatures. 

Football season. 

Supper club plans. 

An entire day spent in PJs, watching episodes of Picker Sisters
(Have you guys seen this show? I think I found my dream job...)

Mailing fun giveaway packages to happy recipients. 

This clutch, which I'm currently using as a wallet. Love it.

Bubble baths. 

Good books. 

Looking ahead to weekends spent at home.

That's what making me happy this Friday. What about you?

I've been wanting to watch Picker Sisters every time I see a commercial for it, I want to watch it!

Parks and Rec has been making me pretty happy lately. Thanks to you for blogging about it!

Hope you have a great weekend Annie!

an A on my first grad school paper. (though it was covered in red markings. apparently I've read way too much Rob Bell and use too many fragments.)

two months away from your visit!

My sister and I wait till the air cools and becomes crisp to watch You've Got Mail (bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils).

As for Picker Sisters, I just recently started watching, and I am in love. (:

Fall-like temperatures, trees changing colors, chocolate milk, fresh newspapers, Indiana Jones movie marathon, reruns of the Office on Netflix, board games with friends.

I hope you get to feeling better!

Aww, hate to hear your under the weather. Hope you start feeling better very soon. I'm loving the cooler temps & being able to drive with the windows down too. I say bring on Fall!!!

Hope you're feeling better, Annie! You've Got Mail and Anne of Green Gables are my go-to-when-sick movies. If I'm going to feel like I'm in the depths of despair, I may as well embrace it fully ;)
