"Space Age Love Song" - A Flock Of Seagulls

I'm so loving today.

You know, one of those days where you take a step back and it hits you . . .

I'm one freaking lucky girl.  And I've had a huge smile on my face all day.

A few things I'm loving. . . .

* Hearing two 11 1/2 year old girls playing "slow motion death fight" in the family room.

* That my house is finally coming together . . .as we make offers on other houses.  I love it, truly.

* This photo I found of me cracking my Dad's back.


* I love that Peanut's principle next year is my old P.E. [and early morning run club teacher] from when I was 11. 

[photo of my brother and I .... pre his [run club teacher's] "get going" honk]

* I love that my Peanut is hugely emotional these days.  She is saying some super awesome things I hope to use during her "roast" when she gets married.

* I love that I can't stop listening to "Glory of Love" by Peter Cetera.  what?  shuddup.

* I love realizing that I am my best coach.

* I love this . . . .

[seriously, Dawn, why aren't we?]

* I love that this run this morning

went beyond awesomely.

* I love that I found a pair of True Religion jeans for $18 today.  In my size.

* Having a quick bite with an old friend [who has gynormous boobs] and telling the big eyed guys that walked by . . . . "take a good hard look, they have no power over you, I swear."

* I loved going to parent / teacher conference and having the teacher start off by saying, "Your daughter is an absolute pleasure to have in class, not to mention, the least dramatic girl in class."  ..... [not sure how that non-dramatic part happened if she's got my genes. ;] ]

* I love planning my menu for Super Bowl Sunday.

[soooooooo making these.]

* Loved making a Double Chocolate Bunt cake this morning pretty much just so I could act like I was Paula Deen while making it.

Happy. Thursday.  My.  Friends.

Thanks for saving the cupcake picture and chocolate cake info for the end. Otherwise I wouldn't have made it to the end. Sooo wanting cake now.

Caroline said...

Bill wants to know if he can come over to your house for Super Bowl..I guess carrot sticks and WASA bread toast is not going to cut it...:)

jymmebe said...

I love everything you said . . . but what the heck about making bids on another house?!? Hello, dear sister, talk to me!!!

Char said...

I know that feeling - the one where you look at your life and feel so full of joy that you think you're going to burst. Those days are golden.

Suzy said...

You are a hoot. And why aren't you a comedian??

Rene' said...

Oh my can I have your totally least dramatic 11 1/2 year old and trade you for my totally over the top 11 1/2 year old. I am about to poke my eyes out.
Cupcake and chicken....you will need to post that recipe.

Matty O said...

If you like the song, "Glory of love" you might like A Newfound Glory's version of it. Takes me back to high school but love the energy they put in it.

Ha ha, your friend is totally making men feel like perverts haha.

Bill G said...

Is that a Chicken Wing Cupcake??? Wow I live in Buffalo, NY and I don't think the Anchor Bar, where the famous chicken wing was invinted (You call them Buffalo Wings - we just call them Wings because we already live in Buffalo), even thought of something like that. I would ask for the recipe but I am afraid!

Christi said...

I may be the only one but I love Paula Deen. I love to watch her just so I can hear her talk. I can't make her recipes or I will for sure end up with a heart attack!

fancy nancy said...

I caught that...rooting for the Pats...I knew you were a smart girl!!

LOVE the cartoon!!! Please teach me your secret for staying on the mill that long!!! You ROCK!

Jason said...

Gotta love having those days that bring you back to earth.

Chicken Wings on top of cupcakes will be ignored.....ha ha ha!

Aimee said...

thedancingrunner said...

XLMIC said...

Love that the P/T conference went like that! We had to suffer through years of the opposite to finally start getting ones like that!

Sounds like all is FAB in the Emz household :)

Patrick Mahoney said...

Put some zucchinni on that cupcake.

Are you doing Surf City?

Emz said...

No. No surf city. :(

adena said...

Emz said...

Ohhhhhh. Now that may have to happen!!
