happy things

reasons i'm smiling this week (and weekend):

- i dropped my painting class (i CRIED in class last week - it was just too much for me) and am now taking a friday class that i love instead ("comic spirit" - comparative world lit class studying humor as a genre - we get to read shel silverstein, my favorite poet!)

- because of furloughs, i don't have to go to school today!

- fridays have become my "i get to wear cute clothes" day since i can't wear them any other day (because i have tennis, jazz, and ballet). maybe i'll start taking friday morning photos? we'll see.

- super fun plans for tomorrow during the day

- a birthday party SCAVENGER HUNT tomorrow night: do you know how much i LOVE scavenger hunts or games of any kind?? so excited.

- the weather's getting cooler (hallelujah!)

- i'm looking forward to wearing my beautiful new coat soon (i went with option three in this vote - it's anthro and soooo cute on).

- we have all brand new tires on our little werewolf. levi noticed a HOLE in one and then we got a flat in another the next day.

- baby gretel snack-pack should be coming home this weekend!!! i can't wait to cuddle my new little kitty.

- i have done a really great job cooking at home this week: very proud of myself. i might post recipes over the weekend in case anyone wants them.

- we bought a couch on labor day! it's supposed to come next week.

- levi and i just bought tickets to go to san francisco for thanksgiving with my family! i loooove sf and can't wait for november! and trips with my family are always so much fun.

- the weekend is here! have a fantastic one!

p.s. i'm not forgetting what today is by not posting about it. i remember, and i will never forget. my heart, thoughts, and prayers are with everyone today.


  1. Dear Jas - I love your outlook and the lists of things that make you happy. You are extracting SO much out of life and I love that.

  2. ohhh those ARE happy things! I wish I had that many! All I've got is my doctors appointment Tuesday and the fact that I'm also getting a Pumpkin Spice Latte Tuesday (I'm off the caffeine, so it's a BIG treat!)

    I'm jealous of the San Fran trip!

  3. I would love recipes! Only if they're easy because I don't like to invest a lot of time in cooking ;) I want the food in my tum asap! It sounds like you had a fantastic week! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Sounds like a great week. And good for your for dropping that class, definitely not worth it if it was making you cry.

  5. wow so much cool stuff going on!

    have a great weekend!

  6. We are getting another puppy! I guess my jelousy at your adorable new gretel has resulted in us getting another dog as I predicted. :)

  7. I'm so glad you have some fun things coming up. Have a magical weekend! And I can't wait to see pictures of your new kitty :)

  8. i would love to see your recipes, we're about to go grocery shopping so i need some new ideas for meals!

    your lil' kitty is so precious. i keep trying to get my boyfriend to let me adopt a kitty from petsmart but of course, he won't. maybe one day.

  9. aww.. sounds like you have a lot of things to be happy about right now! and i'm thinking yes to the friday outfit posts. have a good weekend!

  10. Yayyyyyyyy!!!!!! See you soon!

    And can I have that stuff with brunch? Me thinks yes. HAHA. Text you/call you later!

  11. We'll definitely need picture of the new kitty. It's sad you had to drop art class, but what a great-sounding replacement. No college around here does anything like that.

  12. I think just posting about all of these happy things really shows the beauty of life, and really enhances what the date is. Showing that life is too short. Wonderful post.

  13. painting class is so difficult and extremely strenuous. your lucky you could drop it!!! your weekend sounds likes its going to be so fabulous, im jealous of your scavenger hunt plans (my friends and i have been trying to pull one together) and your brand new kitty!! have a good weekend!

  14. I'm glad you have so much fun stuff coming up, enjoy it all!

  15. oh wow, i've been checking out a lot of blogs and yours is just amazing!
    honestly, i love your style and your posts:)

    if you'd check out my blog, i'd really appreciate it:

  16. I havent taken a painting class in college- but i hope if i do it doesnt make me cry! sorry to hear that.

    you've got excellent plans coming up- have fun!! :)

  17. I, too, have been trying to cook more at home! It's hard sometimes but so worth it! Can't wait to see pics of your cute new furbaby!

  18. now that fall is approaching i am getting read to break out my crock pot. the school year just started and i feel like i already need a break. boo.

  19. this is such a great post! it's so important to remember the little things that make you happy in life-- and strive to do those as much as possible. i need to work on that a little more. hope you're having a great weekend!

  20. Oh WOW, this is a great post & you have the most gorgeous site here. I had to stop by to leave this comment for you – and to say hello of course !
