Sunday Six...Things that made me smile

I sure have been neglecting my Sunday Six lately because there has been so much to write about.Narrowing my smiles down to six has been too hard to do. But I am back on track and starting the new year right with being grateful for the big and little things every Sunday....
1- Kenny and Chloe arrived safely in Nashville. They drove for four days and had terrific weather. Chloe is all settled in her new apartment and Kenny flew home last night. After hearing her voice I'm thinking I may have to visit sooner than I thought. I really miss her already. She starts her internship in the morning,Go get em Clo....

2-We had such a blast with Travlyn Saturday. Steve and Trav surfed and Ash and I had tea and talked in their sweet cozy little house. We shopped a little and then we all had dinner and watched the BIG game in Charger town at a fun new sports bar.Us girls mostly laughed at all the dorks fans who yelled, chanted and high fived with every good play.We were in a loud sea of blue and yellow but it was a great game and a lot of fun to spend the day with the kids. Once again we smiled the whole way home.

3-I had a sweet visit with a precious friend who's in the hospital. We laughed and visited for a few hours and almost forgot she was even sick.She received news right before Christmas that was so difficult to hear. And everyone has been so worried about her and her family. But a couple of us girls went to visit her Friday and she is doing GREAT! She is just finishing her chemo and will be there for a few weeks getting her strength back. She has the BEST personality, a strong faith and always sees her glass as half full. So I know she will be strong and come home healthy. I cant wait to see her again this week. We love you tons and are praying for you every single day.

4- I am really enjoying the post holiday quiet. My house is all put back together and I started a great new book. I was sick for a couple days and had to stay home so it gave me the time to regroup. I love the holidays but normal days are sometimes even better.

5- Diet sprite mixed with cranberry juice! My new drink of choice,it's so delicious and refreshing! The juice alone is too sweet but when you mix it with the sprite it is so yummy!!! It even looks pretty and kinda cocktailish.

6- My new bike! I just love having a bike. I think my neighbors think I am a little 'touched' I take off on it with the cute little basket and away I go. Rhonda wanted some hot cocoa so I said I'll be right there! I put it in my basket and rode over there to deliver it. I feel like Phoebe from Friends (a bit dorky) but I like feeling like a kid again.I can hardly wait to take it to the strand and ride along the beach. Thanks Santa Steve

It was fun to hear about your latest escapades. Hey, I'm so impressed with your bike riding, honestly I just go around our block (1 1/2 miles) and I'm exhausted and out of breath. I can walk for miles but that riding stuff is so hard!! I also LOVE the Travlyn nickname, perfect! We've been watching a lot of football too, I guess that's what you do with boys. Sorry you were sick, I think it goes with the holidays, this is one of the first years in my life that I haven't been sick between Christmas and New Years. I love having all the Christmas stuff put away too. Life begins anew! Have a happy week.

Try a little orange juice in your cranberry, sprite concoction! Delish! Were those little piggie cookies? Adorable!! Though Chad said, "less is more," I'm sure your recount of his childhood, and your undying words of unconditional love on his birthday was the greatest gift of all from his momala! You're still my favorite blogger! :)
