10 Things, vol 19

10 Things is my weekly list of things that are making me smile right now.  Please share your own smile-inducing items and events in the comments!

First, it's another sister birthday! This time it's HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY #22 to the fabulous Lauren.  In the last couple months, Lauren just got engaged and graduated from college and is about to move out to Oregon to start her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree because she is just that awesome.  Even if she seems reserved and shy when you meet her, she has an impressively goofy sense of humor and she's a fantastic listener.

Lauren is up for any adventure you can think of, and she'll always find a way to make the day more fun.  Her secret talents include lip-synching like a pro, and she could have a second career as a makeup artist or consultant.  Did I mention she rides horses in actual shows?  Yeah.  I am related to some really cool ladies.

Hooray for your 10 faves! They made me smile. I want those little rainbow jellies- so sweet :) Since I started knitting I completely forgot how to crochet, but I am tempted to learn again so I can make those little amigurumi. Hope you had a great weekend!

MINT Oreos? O, you temptress!

I wonder if that little girl is related to the little girl who waved at me on the train. She was adorable.
