Two Thumbs Up

Because I seriously know that you were wondering what I like, but were too shy to ask.


1. 365 Thank Yous by John Kralik.  Recommended by Holly and loved by me.  A guy who is in a sad sorry way that writes a lot of thank you notes and figures out how to be happier through gratitude.  Awesome book.

2. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.  Recommended by I don’t remember and also loved by me.  Basically all about a lady who decides what makes her happy and does those things.  It inspired me to do some really easy things to make my life better.  A must read for people who want to be more happy (everyone).


1. Chocolate covered macadamia nut clusters with salted caramel from Costco.  These are the perfect balance of salt and sweet chocolate and tasty nuts, making it impossible to stop inhaling them.  Introduced by Esther and reminded by Elizabeth.  I am mad at both of you.

2. Easter York Peppermint Patties.  Sure you can buy these year round, but something about the pastels and ripping open a tiny bag instead of unwrapping (wait maybe you can’t buy them wrapped anymore…) does it for me.  And when I say does it for me, I mean I eat a big bag every two or three days.

3. Omelets with tasty things inside, like sauteed onions and cilantro.  Apparently I have never had an omelet until August of last year, at which point I became obsessed.  If you are like me, you should check them out.


1.  This site lets you track one goal/thing you are trying to make a habit for 21 days.  Rather, it emails you every day and asks you if you did your chosen goal, and if you didn’t it resets your counter until you get to 21 days.  Based of course on the idea that it takes 21(ish) days to make something a habit.


1. The OrigAudio Doodle.  I bought this through a group coupon site thing for about half off the regular price.  It is an awesome little speaker you can plug your ipod/phone/whatever into, with the ultra-cool part being you choose what photo you want on it.  It has pretty good sound for a little speaker that runs on 2 AAA batteries, and I am loving having music in all parts of my house.

2. A Wild Waves Season Pass.  This was unplanned, but as I noticed on a friend’s facebook that they had bought passes I thought hmmm maybe I will just see how much they cost…  And then when it was on sale for only the price of going twice plus you get a free friend pass (don’t be buttering me up, I’m taking Aaron on my birthday, as I had to convince him it was worth it) and my kids are still young enough to get in free, AND I love waterparks (even ghetto ones) infinity…  Needless to say we will be going almost every day all summer long.  You know, to play in the baby pool and ride on the carousel and ferris wheel.  Feel free to buy a pass and join us.

Now tell me, anything I have been missing?

    I’ve been meaning to read The Happiness Project. Do you have a copy I can borrow? Or not, depending on how you feel about lending out books. :)

    Have you ever tried a frittata?

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Well, a frittata is an Italian omelet and it’s very yummy, as well as easy to make for the entire family all at once.
