making me happy this week

1. Coming home to spic-and-span bathrooms, both cleaned by Curtis.
2. Homegrown strawberries.
3. Pink Q-tips.
4. Arizona breakfasts.
5. This photo by Flickr user Bibimorva, and this photo by Acksonjay.
6. A handwritten letter from Jenny in the mail. A pen I've known since she passed me a note in home ec in seventh grade.
7. Kelly's adorable fancy hat.
8. Tonia's post about keeping it real.
9. The arrival of Owen Spencer Rasmussen, my dear friend Mandyjean's baby number two. An itsy bitsy 5-pounder who I can't wait to get my hands on.

I have to agree with you on #9! From the pictures, he is a tiny one...maybe we can get all the girls together soon. That would be fun.

You have two bathrooms! That is enviable.

What a great thing to come home to not just 1, but 2 clean bathrooms?'s almost like having the Sleeping Beauty fairies right in your own home. Also, I've added you as a link on my page if that's ok :)

I like Kelly's adorable fancy hat too (just checked it out). I want one.
I also have a thing for Owen's (I'm in love with my little 3 year old nephew named Owen).

Ali, your weekly list makes me happy. And that Arizona grapefruit looks delicious!

Can't believe you remember the 7th grade letter. Hopefully my english has improved since then. As for AZ breakfast (ymu) and Owen. I look forward to when I can see him.

I too love your lists each week. We all need to be reminded from time to time that it is the simple things like a clean bathroom (nice going Curtis) or fabulous photograph that make life great! Hope you and yours are happy, healthy and well.
