makin’ me happy!

4 Mar

happy friday guys!  whew, we made it!  this week felt like it dragged on forevvvvver!  whenever i start to feel overwhelmed or upset, it helps me to think of all the little things in life that make me happy!  i truly get excited over the SMALLEST things ever.  soo, without further adieu, here’s a list of a few things that made me happy this week.

1. falafel.  mary, m, and i drove an hour away to the nearest “city” last weekend in an attempt to visit a famous barbecue restaurant.  well, we got there at 4:45 (we were trying to counterprogram, but we actually do eat ridiculously early) and were told there would be an hour and a half to two hour wait.  umm, not happening!  we ended up at a great brewing company/restaurant with a surprisingly AMAZING menu.  it seriously took us like a half an hour to decide what to order.  i ended up getting a yummy wrap that included falafel, hummus, feta, lettuce, cucumber, and tomato.  the wrap was soo delicious and reaffirmed my love of falafel.

2. sleep.  i absolutely LOVE sleeping.  i am literally obsessed with it.  my favorite (or at least one of my top) moment of the day is getting into bed.  and, as mary can attest, i HATE getting out of bed.  i usually stay in bed for like an hour after my alarm goes off.  i wait until the absolute LAST minute possible before hopping out of bed and running around frantically trying to shower and get ready for the day.  although i love sleeping, i am a HUGE workaholic.  99% of the time i work until at least 2 am, even if i have nothing due the next day.  i frequently wake up before sunrise to do work, too.  can you say ocd perfectionist?!  however, when i started to feel sick last weekend, mary and m practically forced me to go to bed early.  i got 8 hours of sleep and felt AMAZING the next day.  i have since gotten at least 8 hours most nights this week, and i feel soo much more energetic than i typically feel after my usual 4.

3. new bodywash.  like i said, i REALLY don’t like waking up in the morning.  i last used a milk and honey brown sugar body scrub, but i didn’t love the smell.  sooo, i stopped by the pharmacy last weekend to pick up a new bodywash, and i LOVE how this new st. ives exfoliating apricot bodywash smells.  it smells so fresh and springy!  i can’t help but smile when i open the bottle.  also, it’s exfoliating so it’s good for dry winter skin!  gotta work on my pale, dry skin before m and i head to the caribbean for spring break…

bOnUs: the fact that spring break starts next friday!!!! ahhhhhhhhhh can.not.wait!
