You ever have that feeling of anxiety, but it's the good kind of anxiety? Like so much happiness and excitement is happening in your life or is going to happen that you feel like you might explode? That's pretty much how I feel right now. It's weird because it's not like there's a bunch of awesome events coming up or something incredible groundbreaking. I think it's just a combination of a bunch of "small" things that just make me take a step back and think, "my life is awesome."

For example... I had a super time with my mom and sister last weekend. Friday night we went to the Chocolate Factory event in Grand Rapids. Just the three of us and some free chocolate... what's not to be happy about? Plus I hadn't seen my mom since January and I really missed her. My sister left that morning for a road trip to SC, so it was just mom, Boo, Nut and I the rest of the weekend. Couple errands, went out for dinner, layed out in the sun, watched a few movies... such a great weekend. 

There was also another huge highlight that totally made my weekend (and am still bursting with excitement about). Sorry I can't give the secret away... it's not my secret to share. But believe me, as soon as it's public, you best believe you'll hear about it from me.  :)

Let's see, what else is new with me..... just went to the hospital for my MRI. Once the results are in, I have to start looking for a neuro specialist. Great. I might be looking at a trip to U of M in the near future. But.... I don't have the results just yet, so best to keep calm and wait to hear from my doctor.

I am super excited to get going on our yard/landscaping this summer. I spent about an hour outside last night pulling weeds and picking up small branches. Four 5 gallon bucket fulls later and I'm almost dandelion free. We have some hideous purple-burgandy-ish weeds taking over our backyard as well. Eww. At one point, I was hoping to totally transform my lawn this summer so we would no longer be "that neighbor." Unfortunately, until we can guarantee that $%#@&?! ivy is dead, we really can't begin to grow grass. We also can't start on our fence until we find the property lines that I'm positive don't exist. So much to do, so little time, so little extra cash. So for the next few summers, sorry neighbors, bear with me.

Welp, better get rollin'. Hope everyone can get outside and enjoy the non-snowy season. Go find your little ray of happiness. xoxo
