**I think it's funny when people ask why I smile so much**

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: 
I, not events, 
have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. 
I can choose which it shall be.
 Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. 
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
— Groucho Marx

(my cousins and I with my grandpa at Chris' wedding) 

My favorite part of this photo
is how 
*we all smile the same*

Pumpkin Lattes & Bargain Books

*It's happy dance time*
was awesome

Starting with a very delish
Pumpkin Spice latte
even though the line was long
~I didn't even mind~

I headed
 downtown to 

(this is only half of the space)
awesome right!

I bought all sorts of fun books
an awesome introduction to typography from the 40's
a bunch of old yellow paper back Nancy Drew novels
some funky cookbooks
an old children's book about cats living on the Eiffel Tower

*here is the best book I didn't buy*

 Behind the Cloud
the warm and thrilling story
 of a beautiful girl alone with all the men
on an Alaskan air base

-I especially love the cover graphic-

*I'm betting the heroine of the story is pretty sassy*
come to think of it
with a premise like that
the whole story is probably very sassy

Gotta love a good breakfast place

The Boyfriend & I have hit the jackpot
*a fantastic breakfast place*
(That serves until 3pm)
-very important for those in the bar industry-
The coffee was hot
the eggs were perfectly over medium
and my 
meat & three 
was as close to perfect as could be
(the mac & cheese was superb) 
and is so close 
we can just roll out of bed
be there in less than 5 minutes

I just  love the mix and match Fiesta ware
