Ya heard

Don't you love the little things? They make my day. Truly.

I've been told I'm easily excitable; I take it as a compliment. Life is too short. So I've decided to start writing about the things that me smile. I will do this as often as possible.

Here are today's:
Last night it rained for the first time in what seemed like forever. It wasn't just a little rain, it was a crazy, LOUD thunderstorm rain. So loud, that Brutus woke me with fearful kisses and then begged to be let under the covers. It was too cute for words, I adore our pooch.

Finally got the satellite radio installed in my new car (along with a fresh tint). Good stuff. Programmed some channels including T's "Backspin"... And heard the song I can never get out of my head, in a good way: It's Like That - Run DMC.
FUN FACT: Last year, I met Darryl from Run DMC on my way home from a buying trip.
It just happened to be T's birthday, who also happens to be a huge fan.
He was so cool, signed a birthday card for T and I didn't even ask for it!
It's Like That - Run DMC, LIVE

"Because it's like that, and that's the way it is." 
Tonight I watched The Voice. Everyone keeps talking about it on Twitter, so I had to see what it was all about. Well the contestants performed a George Michael mashup: Freedom/Faith. Ah, Freedom.

I don't care what you say, for me, Freedom has always been a "cheer myself up" kind of song... and do you remember the video? Star studded with the super models who ruled that decade.

"All we have to do now, is take these lies and make them true somehow. All we have to see, is that I don't belong to you and you don't belong to me..."

Tonight I made dinner, this is the fourth night in a row. I feel better about myself and our food when I know I am cooking it. Tonight I made ratatouille. T didn't seem to love it, but did say it "was healthy," which is probably why he didn't love it. Oh well, good thing that's what I was shooting for...


And lastly, tomorrow is Thursday! My favorite day of the week. I've always believed it's the day that comes with so much promise (what will the weekend hold?) and it's a signal that the week is almost OVER. And this week? I really can't wait for that.
Here's to the promise of what's to come. 


  1. It's pretty awesome that you met Darryl from Run DMC, lol! I agree with you about the cooking your own dinners thing. It really screws up my week when all my dinners are out.

  2. Homecooked is the best. So are dogs and Thursdays! I love Thursdays too!

    I am so glad you've got your blog all up and running, too.
