Things that made me happy this weekend

Lazy mornings that allow for breakfasts like this. Homemade blackberry waffles with yogurt and fruit on top.



Hot summer spring days that make a root beer float an acceptable treat. Smile


3 consecutive days of running. More to come on the book behind the Garmin tomorrow.


A dog that always makes me laugh. Her water bowl was about 20 feet away. I guess the fountain was more intriguing.


A man and his lawn mower. Seriously how can this not make you laugh? Headphones that look like he should be on the tarmac doing ground control at JFK, rain boots in case the floods come, and a big goofy grin. Besides golf and his dogs, tending to the lawn may be his favorite pastime.


Icy cold drink on a hot day.


First cherries of the season.


Grilled corn on the cob.


This guy preparing said corn.


Grilled eats. Side note: these chicken sausages from Sam’s Club are amazing!


Bright flowers. Sometimes I feel like an old lady by how happy I can be just sitting on the deck looking at potted flowers.


A good book. Picked this up after one of Jenna’s book reviews and am loving it so far.


Back to the grind…

What’s something that made you happy this weekend?

  1. My dad wears those same ridiculous headphones when he mows the lawn. He also wears a safari hat…

    Something that made me happy this weekend was being able to lounge around for the entire day on Monday. I can’t remember the last time I did that.

  2. I love love cherries, cannot wait to get some.

  3. OOOOH i want that rootbeer float! what a perfect, summery dessert!

  4. It sounds like all is right with your world this holiday weekend :-). Your photos are terrific and you’ve succeeded in making me hungry despite the early hour. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

    I’m with you on the cherries, I just had some today! What lovely waffles too, by the way!

  13. Those waffles looks to DIE for….as in I’ll die if I dont get some!

  14. I really really really want a root beer float now. Yum!

    Also, isn’t grilled corn just the best? One of the many reasons I luuuurvvv summer!

    Also also, how are your flowers so vibrant? I use miracle grow feed once a week and mine definitely don’t look like that. However, it has been in the 90s for over a week here in Kentucky! Yowzas it’s hot!
