five things...

...that are making me happy today:

1.  An e-mail from my friend, Jane, telling me she had the new catalogs...and I could get one TODAY!071609_catalog

2.  A wonderful visit with Jane...seriously, she is someone I could just chat with all day long! 

And when I was leaving, she gave me these, freshly cut from her flower garden this morning:071609_lavender

oooh, if you could only smell the's so sweet!

3.  Since summer has finally arrived (and the temps are consistently 90-ish lately), I've been drinking lots of H2O.  You've gotta love a nice big glass of ice-water.  I love it the most after it sits for a while, so the ice is soft and chewable, mmmm.  And drinking it out of my new cups (from Target) makes me even happier!


(okay, looking at this picture, the water looks murky.  it's totally not - it's the way the glass "fogged up" on the outside...I promise...the water is fresh and clean and super yummy!)

4.  Next, to water, this is my favorite drink this summer.  I pour 1/4 of the cup full of limeade (it has to be this brand), and then top it off with diet coke.  It is soooooo good!


5.  Does this even need an explanation?


I didn't think so. :o)


  1. ohh I'm going to have to try the diet coke and Simply Limeade together (I just happen to have both in my fridge) Sounds yummy!

  2. umm, makes me thirsty! love all the ways you drink your diet coke!

  3. Love this post! TFS...Abby:)

  4. Wow I guess my diet is going well!! I find the catalog looking more yummie than the chocolate :D

  5. fun post wendy! i love ice cold water ... i can drink tons of it. and i use a pretty red cup that i got from target that just makes me happy! interesing to mix the soda with the limeade. i would have never thought to mix stuff like that. can you tell i'm not very creative on the drink front. lol!
