Over the last two days, I've been hearing/discussing a lot about acknowledging and appreciating the blessings in life. It's such an important practice.

Friends - please remember to do this.

Life becomes difficult, sometimes petty and often hectic.
But so many of us are given the gift of cruising through life in a mostly content space -- sometimes crappy, sometimes incredible. But mostly content.

Tiny moments can fill our hearts with joy and even make the bad things a little lighter.

I know I'm an eternal optimist and I know have it a lot easier than some people.
I know it's easier said than done.

But just take 60 seconds to run a list of people and things in your life that make you smile.
You won't regret it. :-)

Easter weekend.

The weekend sped by completely too fast.

On Friday, the hubby & I went to a late night showing of Adventureland. It was pretty darn mediocre but the movie was free and the new theater in my parent's town is really neat... except for the ODD wall decor:


On Saturday, we headed over to The Rainbow Bar & Grill to hang out with our friend Tenn for her birthday. Great people and good times! I keep forgetting how amazing their pizza is; we had mushroom and olive. Mmmm mmm!

On Sunday, Mom, Dad, sis, hubby and I had an awesome Easter brunch at the Hilton at Universal. Oh my buffet! We were there for almost three hours enjoying the feast and each other's company before Mom had to go to work and hubs and I returned home to watch baseball and pass out. Go Dodgers!
