Happy things

Wow, is it Friday again already? This week flew by! I've been out at some meeting or another for three nights in a row and I'm really looking forward to spending an evening at home tonight. I've got lots on the agenda for the weekend {the organization project for the playroom and boys' room continues, as does getting the living room ready for finishing last year's epic reno!}, so tonight we'll take it easy and maybe order in some dinner. I'm thinking Noodle Box...

Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself. First, some happy things with which to end the week:

 Thursday evening~ had just enough time for a cup of vanilla tea downtown at Murchies.

 And then spent several hours at this bookstore... {I heart Teachers' Night at Munro's!}

 I love loading up on boxes of lovely children's books for my library. So many fabulous new titles out right now {stay tuned for some children's book reviews over the coming weeks}

Cassie's having her baby soon!

Knowing my childhood love for it, Alan got me the pilot episode of Little House on the Prairie {isn't he lovely?} and I watched it late last night. It brought back so many memories of being a little girl and imagining I was Laura Ingalls... {Dylan and I are reading Little House in the Big Woods at the moment, too! It's like I'm 8 years old all over again!}

And oh yeah... I can't even believe it myself, but it looks like I might be going to New York City for spring break!!!!!  Quick, somebody pinch me!

What happy things are you ending your week with? I want to hear them all!

Have a fabulous Friday, my lovelies.

  1. Those are ALL very happy happy things indeed! Can't wait to see the organizing and reno changes!

    And New York ... with whom?? To see friends, with Alan, for work?? Oh curious ....
    ... and a wee bit jealous! :)

  2. what a lovely week! wow, it's been so long since i've seen a "little house on the prairie" episode. blast from the past! :) i just started watching "life unexpected" on netflix instant watch. it's SO good! i think you would really like it too actually {if you haven't seen it already}. it's sort of in the genre of "parenthood" and "men in trees" {by that i mean it's a drama, but a sweet one}.

  3. Such happy things to end the week with ;) All of them are great!! Your coming to New York??? Eeekkk!! Exciting ;) And during spring that is going to be fun ;) xoxo

  4. these are ALL fabulous things! I always pretended I was either a Native American or a Victorian - a la American Girl's Samantha.

  5. Thank you for adding my little excitement to your lovely list dear! It sounds like a fantastic week and any amount of time spent amongst children's books is good if you ask me. I am very jealous of the New York plans - cannot wait to hear all about it soon.

  6. NEW YORK - Thats awesome - you will hve so much Fun! I would love to go back and see more! am reading on te Banks of Plum Creek to the kids right now - they are very interested in the series of little house on the prairie - I think I will have to look for it at the library
    Still working on updating the blog - the rest of our company just left this morning so I may have a bit more time on my hands - Ha YEAH right ! At least I am thinking about it again its a step in the right direction - ;-)
    Love Ya Kelly

  7. I love happy lists. And I look forward to book reviews. I can file it away for future reference :)

    And New York?! Yeeee! That's awesome. I can't wait to hear more details about this trip. x

  8. bookstores, babies and Little House on the Prairie? all good things.

    NYC? the best in your list! We will definitely have to have a Sbux/bookstore date!

  9. @Sheba- definitely! I must confess I think of you as being in Toronto still. I'd totally forgotten you're living in NYC now!

  10. You need to share dates asap! I might be traveling to San Fransisco in March and I won't want to miss your visit. So exciting!


Yay! I love comments.
