Fun Day With My Ladies

24 Aug

I had the best day today! I got to spend the whole day with my girlfriends at the spa. It was my friend’s bachelorette party celebration, and it was a blast!! We laid out by the pools, took mud baths in red clay, got pedicures, and sipped champagne. It was exactly what I’ve been needing for awhile! Girl time. It’s hard for me to make time for myself to hang out with my girlfriends. Life seems to be so busy for everyone all the time, and it just doesn’t happen often enough. This made today that much more special though.

I’m so glad to have spent the beautiful day with my ladies and can’t wait to do it again!

If you’re in Southern Cali, you should definitely check out the spa we went to. It’s called Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa. I can’t wait to go back!

I’m Away Today

12 Aug

Hi Everyone! I’m away today. I am guest posting at my friend Jen’s blog, Delightful Deets. We met at Elevate, and I have been following her blog ever since. She is such a sweetheart and has the cutest  kids! Come see me over there, and check out her blog while you’re there. 🙂

Happy Monday!

It’s Monday…Hello.

29 Jul

Hello Monday,

This is the last Monday that I will go to the job that I’ve had for the past 6 years. This is the last Monday that I will sit at my microscope and check emails, the last Monday that I will chat with friends, enjoy lunch together and go on walks during our breaks. This is such a bittersweet time in my life to realize that today was the last full day at the company where I first started my career as a Cytogenetics Technologist. I have many fond memories of my journey there. I even met my husband there. I grew, I learned, and I experienced so much there. I will miss many things, mostly the people. I have worked with some amazing people in my career, and I will miss the strong working relationships we shared. I am hopeful that I will build new ones at my new job, I am hopeful for new beginnings, a new sense of motivation, and new friendships. I am excited for my new journey!

After work, I went to return some dress pants that I bought last week. I ended up finding some much more affordable ones at Costco of all places. So, I returned the others, but of course I ended up buying something else while I was there. I’ve been in a buying mood lately! I bought a starter kit of Bare Minerals make-up. I have always heard good things about it, and I like that there are only five ingredients used in it. I was hooked when they asked if they could put some on me. I don’t often wear make-up, but I think I should start since I am getting older, and my skin isn’t as young looking as it once was. Do you use Bare Minerals or have you heard anything about it? I am kind of having buyer’s remorse, and I can’t decide if I should keep it or not. Heehee.

After my shopping trip, I picked up some dinner and headed home to my boys. After an early dinner, I took Little Mr. to the park where he explored and explored. He loves walking around and picking things up off the ground. He loves to pick flowers and play in the dirt. It was a really nice evening. All in all, it wasn’t such a bad Monday.

Oh yeah, we also got a new dishwasher delivered (after suffering with our barely functioning one for a year!), and my hubby installed it. I’m so proud of him! He’s never been much of a “handy man”, but he’s been doing a lot of projects around the house lately. I’m excited to start making some home improvements now that he’s in the handy man mode! 😉

How was your Monday? Eventful or just another Monday? Hopefully, there was some excitement in it or something that made you smile. 🙂

Guest Post: Spreading Happiness with The Happsters

22 Jun

Hi All! I have a visitor on the blog today. Her name is Kelli from The Happsters. She was one of the first blogger friends that I met. She is in the San Diego area too, so we have been able to get together and build a friendship through our common interests. So happy to have met her, and I love the movement she is starting through her blog. I asked her to stop by and share a little bit about The Happsters. Take it away Kelli…

I started the Happsters in January when I saw that the Today Show had featured a suicide prevention organization called “Happier Boston”. They showed volunteers going to a train station in Boston, holding up happy signs for travelers walking by, and handing out oranges to anyone who wanted them. I absolutely loved the idea and it occurred to me that if people went out of their way to spread happiness, the world would be a happier place. I’ve always been interested in happiness and realized that there wasn’t a movement out there that was created to make the world a better place through random acts of happiness. So I decided to create the Happsters!

We make other people happy and let others know when they make us happy.  One of the ways we  spread happiness is by giving happy notes to express our gratitude to people we encounter (our mailmen, waitresses, family members, friends, etc.). You can become an official Happster & get free Happy Notes here. We also blog about everything related to happiness. Check it out here.

We now have over 320 official Happsters in 20 countries, and our goal is to have 10,000 Happsters spreading happiness in their communities by 2014 (ambitious, I know!).

happy, the happsters, smile
