February 25 10

Putting a deposit down on THE house.

Cleaning lady day.

No homework days.

Movie theater popcorn.

Josh knowing all the words to The Star Spangled Banner.

A giant coffee showing up without you having to ask for it.

Your favorite hoodie straight out of the dryer.

A giant hunk of cookie dough.

Finishing a 1,000-piece puzzle.

Paying $29.99 for a dress at the BCBG  outlet that you almost paid full price for last year.

Discussing LOST with kristabella.

My children watching The Neverending Story for the first time. And loving it.

Isabella in a tutu.

A bra that makes your boobs look awesome.

The day after the stomach flu.

A healing puppy.

Target.

The answer “You know, it was a lot of wax on, wax off-ing” when I ask my son how karate was.

Cracking open a new book.

Theater tickets for your and your first-born.

A really good cover of a really good song.

Unexpected gifts in the mail, especially the kind that tell you not to f$%ck with the Jesus. I’m looking at you, Metalia and J.

A perfect black t-shirt.

Researching beach rentals for you and your entire family.

Stride gum.

Hugging Emily after not seeing her for 16 days.

Radiohead on repeat.

Hearing news of a shrinking tumor.

Being able to be at one of your niece’s dedications and birthday parties. viva la Nashville!

  14. Yay! “THE” house. I would write something obnoxious about how I was totally there when you guys were looking at that when I saw you personally in Atanta for my visit with you, but I don’t want to be one of THOSE people.

    And I also LOVE bras that make my breasts look fabulous, because so much of the time, they don’t.
