ten happy things:

the little things that make life beautiful {as of late}:
1. holidays that insist on me wearing my favorite color: green.
2. cadburry eggs and girl scout cookies.
3. homemade banana bread with whole wheat flour. yum.
4.  getting a little package in the mail from little brother:
{a t-shirt with the mexican flag. too cute and funny. oh, and something for my smash book too}
5. watching downton abbey with lovebird. [every night.]
we are a bit addicted.
it's apparent we are quite connected to the characters:
we both looked over at each other with tears in our eyes after a death in the episode.
6. washing my face with the {trendy} mia. 
there's a reason it is trendy: it works wonders. 
7. the saying "brunettes have more fun".
it's fun being on the dark side for once. pun intended.  
8. the lovely peter pan collar.
i think it is so feminine and classy.
{i love this, this and this one. i want them all.}
9. wearing my hunter boots like they're going out of style.
thank you, rain.
10. warm weather for the mere purpose of not having cracked/dry hands.
you have no idea what my poor hands have looked like.
this is a true blessing. 


  1. You should share that banana bread recipe. Sounds delish!
