happiness this week...

Our first week of summer was such a happy one. :)
Here are some things that made me smile...

Lots of sunshine!
Andrew and I love being outside in the warm weather. We tossed on our bathing suits and I was able to lay in a lounge and sun myself while Andrew happily played with the hose. :)

Hummus and crackers.
I'm fairly certain I could exist solely upon Trader Joe's hummus and crackers. Love. Lovelovelove. :)

Fresh squeezed orange juice.
I was so thankful I snapped a few quick photos of this... my dad helping Andrew make fresh orange juice. They were quite pleased with themselves. :)

A thriving plant!
And if you know me well, you know I am not a plant person. Andrew was very worried one day in his kindergarten class when I was the parent in charge of planting grass seeds with all the kids. He told his teacher, "My mommy hates gardening, and hates getting her hands dirty!" {What can I say, the child knows me well.} But since his lovely teacher gave me this gorgeous flower as a "thank-you-for-volunteering" gift, I decided to try my hand at actually keeping a plant alive. So far so good. Andrew is quite proud of me. :)

Palm Springs!
Tomorrow we are off for a relaxing trip to Palm Springs... I can't wait to lay by the pool and soak up that hot sun!! Yay for summer vacations! :)

What made you happy this week?
Enjoy your weekend!
