My gas tank is on the right side of my car - everyone else waiting in line at Sam's Club was on the left. I didn't have to wait in the long line - that made me smile tonight.

While I like the Andy Griffith Show, my all time favorite episode is the one where the new boy comes to town and teaches Opie what he should be getting from his dad and if he doesn't, how to get his way. The best part is when Opie tries these all out on Andy - holding his breath, throwing a tantrum, etc. I turned on the TV in my bedroom tonight and that episode was on and that made me smile tonight.

I got hooked of Face Off by accident its first season while flipping through the channels one night. I am amazed at the talent and creativity each time I watch them create the makeup on their models. The past few nights I have been binge watching to catch upon this season - it make smie.

Josie came to visit and the task master that she is, we redecorated the spare bedroom. I let her take the lead and she chose most everything in the room, need to pick up pics for the frames and a bed skirt, otherwise it is complete -that makes me smile.

Since Josie wanted to post the redecorated room pics first...
I am sitting here thinking abut how lucky I am. I am so fortunate to have siblings (and their spouses) who allow me to have special times with my nieces and nephews. The one on one times, trips, plays, games, hanging out, etc. are filled with special memories that I hold close - makes me smile.

The task master is here and we are redesigning the spare bedroom. To be honest it was a dumping place. Paint on the walls, new bedding, and accessories purchased from Ikea. We hope to have it all back together by the time Jo goes to bed. Time is ticking, but it makes me smile.

Four years ago I received this picture in the mail. I was having flu symptoms and chest pains throughout the day (well for the whole week) and was thinking maybe I should go to the emergency room, but was kind of ignoring it all. I got home from Iowa to find this thank you picture in the mail from Anna. It reminded me that I had seven nieces and nephews that I want to be around for in the future so I made the call to my sister to go to the emergency room. Long story short - four years ago tonight I was in ICU waiting for to get stents placed in the morning. I am a heart survivor and each time I look at this picture I smile.

Wedding today at Epiphany. One of things I needed to do today as a wedding coordinator was to confirm which version of the vows the bride and groom had picked for the wedding. Normally I don't get to go outside in wedding days, but they were taken pictures out in the garden so I had to go outside. :). Fall and the Epiphany garden area was beautiful - made me smile today.

Asana is a new project management software we are using at work. I have also started using it to manage other tasks I need to do.
One of the features that I turned on is a celebration hack. Didn't know what it would do, but turned it on. Yesterday when I checked off a task as complete, a unicorn flew across the screen with an affirmation. Now it doesn't do it every time, but randomly as I check things off my list.
Today it flew across my screen multiple times as I got several things checked off my list - and that made me smile.

Ella had a great time at grandma's, but I think she knew we were heading home. She slept the whole way home and when she got home, she explored each room and found treasures she left in secret places - watching her excited to be home again made me smile tonight.
Picking up Ella today in Ely. Watching Ella and grandma, you know that there is mutual love there. Yes, Ella has a few new habits grandma has promoted - expectation of a treat after going outside, face wiped after a drink to name a few - but I know that Ella is loved and in excellent care at gramdma's house - and that makes me smile.
