The past few days have actually included some things that really made me happy. OK they are small things, but you can’t ever taken them for granted!.


1. Buy One Get One Frozen Yogurt

The best thing happened to me Tuesday night. We went to Menchies Frozen Yogurt because I was craving it bad. 

They had my favorite flavor – Cookies N’ Cream AND it was buy one get one free night. I couldn’t turn that down so I got a cup for myself and then filled up another (sans toppings) to put in the freezer.

It was the best feeling in the world to go into my freezer last night and finish up the other cup. So delicious!

It is the little things that make me happy in life lately 🙂


2. The iPhone Returns

Remember a few months ago when I talked about switching phones? We ended up going with the Samsung Galaxy S4. Fail.

My husband and I tried for months to get used to it, use it, and kept hoping we would like it. It never happened.  We went back to the iPhone 5.

The phone itself was great (loved the bigger screen) but the Android operating system to me was so slow. I guess if I had never used the iPhone then I wouldn’t notice the difference.  We were just going to suck it up, but an opportunity came up for us to trade it so we jumped at it.

We should have them here in the next few days, and I look forward to it!

I love you iPhone I will never doubt you again.


3. Decisions Made

I THINK we are starting to come to some decisions about our future. Unfortunatly, that means we will be waiting another month or so.  

The match is not until March 17th so no definitive plans will be made until then. I am OK with that as long as my husband ends up where he wants and is happy. That really is #1 in my book.

I love how much this blog is allowing me to document this whole journey. I know years from now I can look back and I’m sure i’ll be able to smile at what I thought was stressful to me.


4. Part Time Work Begins

I only have one more week until my first part time job begins. I am looking forward to at least helping in some way, and I am still on the hunt for a second job. 

I try not to stress about it and really take it a day a time, this all has been such a learning experience for me.


5. I CAN run

The other day I was antsy to run more, but then I just said to myself I CAN run. I can go to the gym, get on the treadmill, and run 3-4 miles. That is enough.

Of course, I want to do more but a month ago I was barely running anything. I’ve come so far and I am so blessed to have the ability to run. 


I know none of those things are life changing (and some are just silly), but they have brought me joy this week and I think focusing on the little things in life can really help us to realize our blessings.
