happy things.

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

I haven't had to try this hard to be happy for quite some time. But I just can't tell you enough how much I hate being sad. While I know that there is nothing that can replace this sadness right now- I am really trying to focus on the positive things in my life today....

01. the plane tickets that we just booked for our trip here:

02. my amazing husband. he just called me and he was in old navy? {very weird.} he was trying to be sweet and stop in today and pick up the dress from there that I have been wanting. {!} he calls because he was overwhelmed with the choices once he was there and wanted to make sure he was getting the right thing; so here I am on the phone while he's talking to the sales girl making sure he's got the right thing... "suspended halter dress..... yep, with the bow on the front.... navy blue.... yep, yep, that much..." Honestly, the fact alone that he was sweet enough to remember this dress that I mentioned to him once about 2 weeks ago was sweet enough, but hearing him relaying info like bows and halters to the sales girl just made my heart melt. How in the heck did I get this lucky??

I also don't think I ever mentioned that on Friday night when we returned home {after this entire 5 hour ordeal with my runaway sister} he had two rose bushes that he picked up for me sitting inside-- I guess I had a bad day on Thursday, which I didn't even remember at that point!-- and he was trying to cheer me up- talk about good timing! And also the fact that he took another rose bush over to my aunt and uncle earlier that day who are going through a heck of tough time right now too. Isn't he just a peach? He makes all of the difficult things in my life so much easier. I don't know what I would do without him... but I could go on all day about this boy. :)

03. that Stacey stayed calm enough during our "scare" Friday night to remember more of Hollie's friends than I did.

04. my new gym membership; including one month free!

05. having great friends. all of them have been there for us through all of this and they are just truly amazing; I am so glad to have each and every one of them.

06. that Kathy also asked me to be in their wedding over the weekend; and what we were doing the moment that she asked me.

07. and that Aaron said, "well if she didn't ask you to be a bridesmaid, you would have just been a groomsman!" :)

08. that this movie comes out this weekend.

09. thinking about the top tier of our wedding cake, frozen in a tupperware container in my parents freezer right now-- and that we get to break into it soon.

10. that we are going to see seether live this weekend.

currently listening to :: rise above this by seether.
