What's making me happy this week

Hi folks. I'm so sorry that yes, infact, it is another Friday without my awesome iphone instagram pictures. I looked through my collection from this week and all the ones I had taken were for my February photo a day challenge which is indeed proving to be quite the challenge. It is stressful! I really want to do them all and so even though some days I do a couple, I am trying to get them all done. I will surprise you with them at the end of the month which we are thankfully quickly approaching.

So instead I will treat you to my own version of "what's making me happy this week" which is a spin off of my favorite podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour. I've been listening to it while I workout and it is so entertaining. So here's mine:

1. Chocolate, roses, and a dinner out with my husband.
Yay for Valentine's Day! We had a late dinner reservation and it was so funny to go to a restaurant with exclusive couple-only dining. As the night went on, the couples got younger and younger. Who eats dinner at 9pm??

2. Bravo TV

Need I say more? Scott was out of town this past weekend with his annual guys ski weekend and I took the opportunity to mainline some shows from my favorite channel. It was perfect timing as at one point there were episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Real Housewives of Orange County all DVRed on my TV. So, so trashy but yet so, so awesome.

2. A new book

I must have lots of free time when I don't have a husband to take care of because I also started and finished a whole book the weekend Scott was gone. I read Tina Fey's Bossypants and I loved it. I am a big fan of her from SNL and 30 Rock so this fit right in. Her writing is just like her and I hope she writes more books in the future.

3. Game of Thrones

Speaking of reading, I am also making my way slowly through the 2nd book in George R.R. Martin's series that the HBO show Game of Thrones is based on. I listened to the first book in audio form after I watched the first season on HBO and it was a game changer. I'm totally hooked now and HBO has been sneakily re-airing episodes of the first season. I've been catching up while waiting for the 2nd season to start which I think is right around the corner in April. I love how I can pick up all kinds of dorky knowledge from the books that I would have never gotten in the show. Its lots of fun.

What's making you happy this week? Does all this make me seem like a super dork? I hope not....have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. I've been wanting to read BossyPants - I'll have to request it from the library!

  2. BossyPants is hilarious! A great read.

    Where did you guys go to dinner?

  3. Bossypants is such a fun read -- love Tina Fey! Things that are making me happy ... Drew's birthday, fresh pineapple and heading to a workshop this afternoon : )

  4. Hi Rose, I've been wanting to email you lately but have been unable to locate an email address for you - finally I stumbled upon this blog - I LOVE it! I think about you and your family every day...I'm just so sad for what you've had to endure and continue to experience. I pray that every single day you will find a little bit of peace. As I was reading your blog I read how you say "and God bless baby Trace in heaven..." - my little girl Ellie and I say our prayers at night and at the end say the exact same words; she doesn't know Trace nor do I but we are always thinking of you, him and your family. If there is ever a day you want to get out and do something different, I have little girls and we'd love to play, drink coffee and spend time together.

  5. Hi Rose, I too am now reading Game of Thrones Book 2 on on Kindle Fire! We must be soul mates! the only thing I don't like about Kindle is it is hard to jump back and forth in the book (like read ahead and then go back again!) These game of Throne books will keep me busy for a while, and boy is the laundry piling up in the meantime! Blood of my Blood.
