Things that make me happy...

It's Tuesday, and here are some things recently that have made me happy...

  • The fact that the chicken story is still making me laugh. I got this in the mail today from a very good friend:It totally brought a smile to my face! :) I haven't heard the autopsy reports yet, but will let you know if I hear anything.
  • Getting a fun package in the mail from Trakkers Teammate Kelly , filled with these goodies:You rock girl and my lips thank you very much! :)
  • We had a little get together on Friday night with some fabulous friends for dinner and a cookie exchange. One of the girls got me this: If you can't read the bottom, it says "How Naughty can I be and still get what I want?". HA! So perfect!
  • I went to spin this morning (it's been like 2 months since I've gone) and convinced Tom to try it out. I knew that he was skeptical about how hard of a workout it would be. I'm sure hearing that it was going to be a "Holiday version" class with all holiday songs made him even more doubtful, but like Mikey, he liked it! And the holiday songs were awesome with the class.
  • Speaking of holiday songs... this one was played and always makes me laugh. I think I laughed out loud in class today!
  • We are supposed to have a white Christmas. That hasn't happened in a long time here in Delaware. As long as I can get to my mom and dad's to spend the day with them and my sister and brother-in-law on Saturday, I'm thrilled with tons of snow.
  • Noodles and Company has everything going right for them. Have you been there? Their mac and cheese is like crack. I'm serious. You have to try it. Yeah, I'm gaining weight and bitch and moan about it every day and then go and eat Noodles and Company. I know. But it's that good. (Plus it's the perfect PMS food...)

Hope you are having a great Tuesday... off to catch up on some blogs - I'm way behind!

I like Noodles n Company too. My boys get their mac-n-cheese and I always end up eating some of it! But, what I like too is that you can substitute whole wheat pasta for any dish! Awesome!

Beth said...

Carolina John said...

Merry christmas guys! The chicken is a classic.

Mark said...

"There Mac and Cheese is like crack." Bwaaahahahahaha! You should contact the company and see if they want to use that catch phrase. That is one RINGING endorsement if I've ever heard one. You don't mind if I steal that for a future post?!!

Jason said...

Not sure why I just noticed this but I love the side banner that says "It May Be A Crazy Life, But It's Our Life"

I love that quote and it is so true not only for your relationships but also for this lifestyle we lead.

Kim said...

Betsy said...

I love Noodles Mac&Cheese. I also get a side of veggies to make myself feel better about it.

Merry Christmas!

Anne-Marie said...

Lots of fun gifts! The rubber chicken is esp. great! Your chicken story still cracks me up, too! I am eagerly awaiting the autopsy results :)

I have heard so many people rave about Noodles & Co, but there aren't any around Pittsburgh, so I've never experienced it. Guess I need to look for it when I'm traveling!

Hope you have a great holiday and get some snow! :)

Jeff Vanis said...

Now that is a martini glass! I am a sucker for penne rosa! When I try to be healthy, the pad Thai is good as well!

Jon said...
