The last couple days have provided me with a few laughs so I thought I'd share some of them with you in the form of quotes, pictures, and stories.

Me: I noticed they're doing construction on the other side of the building.
Grandma: They're putting new siding up. They're going to do some work on this side at some point. I hope I'm not around for that (by "not around" she means dead). It's going to be really loud.

* Quote:
6 year old: She's going to get baptized (talking about his older sister).
4 year old: I'm not going to get baptized.
Me: Why not?
4 year old, matter of factly: Because I don't like drowning. 

* After leaving my cousin's house today, where I read some Spanish (and English) books to her 2 and a half year old daughter, I got a text from my cousin with a quote from her daughter after I left: "Avivabift was cute." (two parts to this make me laugh: the way she said my name and that a 2 year old deemed me cute.)

* Hooping - I've made sooooo many hula hoops lately and I love it. I brought a bunch to a picnic today and coerced most of my friends into trying it. They loved it - don't let them tell you otherwise.

* The picnic today was at a park on the lake, and it was the kind of day that makes me love Michigan. Even though it was around 90 degrees, the breeze coming off the lake was divine and we sat on the edge of the lake for as long as possible. It was glorious

* I found a episode of Murder, She Wrote that crossed over with Magnum PI! And I really wanted to write that entire last sentence in caps and italics because you guys!! Murder, She Wrote, and Magnum PI! My two great loves!!!!! Together, at last! (I mean, they were together in 1985, anyway.)*

Magnum was falsely accused, but Jessica is on the case.
* I watched Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol tonight with some friends. I had been  unwilling to watch it before after finding out it had nothing to do with ghosts (disappointing), but I'm glad I did. The way Tom Cruise runs is something that must be seen. I even practiced the Tom Cruise run and mastered it, if I do say so myself. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, watch this clip (link).

Anyway, those are some of the things making me happy lately. I have to run now and watch the rest of this Murder, She Wrote. Jessica and Higgins are about to crack the case wide open. 

What's making you happy today? 

*I've seen less than five episodes of both of these shows but don't let that fool you. I'm a huge fan.

Grandma said the same thing to me. I am reading that Murder She Wrote Book you gave me...Jessica Fletcher cracks me up.

We walked down to the park this afternoon for some family time and let the kids play on the playground for a few minutes. There were 2 boys there playing that were about 9 years old and I overheard Samantha telling this one boy he was cute. His friend said, "Which of us is cuter?" and she pointed to this blonde haired kid. OMGoodness. So funny and yet scary.

Magnum is so dreamy.
