It's a Beautiful Day!!

Yesterday's post was long. Too long. And quite likely boring for anyone who doesn't follow Survivor or American Idol. So today's is going to be a point-form celebration of all that is good in my world right now. :)

  • It's FRIDAY!! It's SUNNY!! What a gorgeous day out there!!

  • I ate Mae's for supper last night. Cheeseburger platter with poutine on the fries. I just about died and went to heaven. I don't even want to hear about the calories. I don't care. It was my first Mae's of the year, and it was deeeeelish.

  • Paul went home on American Idol last night! Woo hooooo!! Okay, I didn't hate Paul that much. But I liked him better when he had a guitar. He should have listened to me!! Strangely enough, just this week, I've developed a sort of dislike for two of the competitors that I previously enjoyed - Casey and Scotty. Casey does this mean, teeth-baring stare into the cameras that I'm not a fan of, and Scotty's head-swivel and awkward stage presence totally distracted me in what was an otherwise nice duet last night with Lauren Alaina doing Lady A's "American Honey". So I would have rather seen either of them go ahead of Paul. I have also suddenly developed an affection for Stefano, and I was glad he survived another week. He's just soooo cute!

  • My mom's birthday was this past week, and we're celebrating on Sunday...I love family birthday parties!

  • I literally fell in love with Jason Aldean after he performed on Idol last night with Kelly Clarkson. Yummm. I HEART cowboys!!

  • I can't wait to hang out with the girls on Saturday night at Kelsey's. It's been a long time since we all went out to eat together, and I'm so looking forward to it!

  • Did I mention how much I love the sunshine?!?

  • The Easter Bunny is coming SOOOOON!!

  • I'm so excited for upcoming trips to the movies with friends to see Water for Elephants and Something Borrowed. Can't wait to see both of these movies!!!

  • This week, I got my "inheritance" from my Grandma - and I was so thrilled with it. It's a beautiful quilt that she had made and given to my Aunt Marion's in-laws years ago. One of her sisters-in-law returned it to her to pass on to someone in the family after Grandma passed away. I was the lucky one whom she offered it to. I was so happy to get it, and I can't wait to put it on my bed!! In my family, you usually get a quilt when you get married, and Grandma had enough crib quilts stocked up for each grandchild when babies arrive. But as we all know, I'm a long way off from getting married or having a baby. It makes me so pleased to have a piece of her hard work now in my possession. I'm going to do a post specifically on the quilt someday soon with pictures to show you how beautiful it is!

  • It's weird, but in the past few weeks I've had the strongest urge to learn how to knit and now I want to learn how to quilt. I think Grandma might have something to do with this...

Happy Friday everyone!
