christmas ornament swap

So...I've been a slacker.

Well, mainly, I went on vacation and didn't post this beforehand....and, if you know me well, you know I'm quite the procrastinator.

So a while back I joined an ornament swap group thinking it'd be a super fun idea.  Erica from Good Job Momma got me, and can I just say how awesome she is???

I love the ornament she made me.  She used super cute paper on every side of the ornament {the sides and back are different too!}  She even included other personal touches inside the package, knowing my love for Diet Coke!  {Thanks so much for my ornament...I can tell a lot of thought was put into it!}

Merry Christmas!

Don't Worry. Be Happy.

Sometimes people post on Facebook just the thing I need to read...and today it happened twice.

“So often we get caught up in the illusion that there is something just beyond our reach that would bring us happiness, a better family situation, a better financial situation, or the end of a challenging trial. The older we get, the more we look back and realize that external circumstances don't really matter or determine our happiness. We do matter. We determine our happiness. You and I are ultimately in charge of our own happiness.” - Dieter F. Uchtdorf


It's a bad day. Not a bad life.

I won't lie.  Today has been a rough day.  Not sure why....just a lot of little things adding up.  And I'm not sure how it goes for everybody, but I know that when I'm having a bad day, it's so much easier to see my flaws and all the inadequacies in my life.  And that was just making life worse.

But what's nice about life is that a day can only last so long.  After twenty four hours, a new one is given to us.  So no matter how bad it may be, it can't last longer than that.  For me, sleep helps a lot of things.  So I'm kind of excited to go to sleep tonight and leave today behind.

Semi-related side note:

As I was flipping through pages on iTunes,  I found this gem.

Fun Fact For Ya {triple-F-Y}:  This song totally reminds me of family road trips to Boise.  We had a cassette tape I feel like we always listened to.  And I'm pretty sure this was the first song.  I only remember a handful of other songs on it....and even though the road trips felt long, this tape is a good memory :)
