Good morning!

Feeling really well this morning,
very taken care of.

Eating yummy 'rice squares' (generic chex) with sliced banana <-- purchased by my incredibly generous friends Stacey and Brandon.
Drinking coffee out of a mug <-- a present from a former Starbucks co-worker.
Listening to this song, among others.

The new man

Tonight I got lots of snuggles and kisses and played board games and giggled and just had a lot of fun!

So who's the new guy?

Well, I met him at my friend Cara's house tonight, where I went for a night of dinner, laundry, and TV watching.

He actually lives there too.

Meet Grayden.

He's 3. And totally my new best friend.

Upon moving into my new apartment I soon realized, "Oh my! I need a coffee pot!"
Soon after that I remembered, "Oh my! I'm poor!"
Too poor to buy a coffee pot for sure, but also definitely too poor to stop at a coffee shack on the way to the bus stop every day.
Hot coffee in a thermos is high on the list of important things to have on cold, early mornings. Seriously, it makes getting sprayed by road mist a little more tolerable.
Also, it helps me remember little things. Like to put deodorant on. Or to put my shoes on the right feet. (yep.)

This morning after a wrong-foot-slipper-mix-up and nearly falling asleep on the bus, I decided that something had to be done. I asked Kelly, one of the managers who works upstairs if we had any "really super cheap" coffee pots. And guess what??!

I brought home this beautiful little baby today. A discontinued model. $7.99. Plus it was the floor model. Another 20% off. Plus my employee discount. Another 15%.
About $5.50.

I'm drinking a cup of yummy coffee right now. With my dinner. Of ramen noodles.

Women's Retreat

I'm leaving today for a weekend retreat with the ladies of Soma. I'm very much looking forward to a relaxing weekend the ocean, especially because the theme of the retreat is "Her Joy: intimacy with God." This coincides perfectly with my theme for the year: be happy/have fun (joy), and grow in relationship with God. :)

On my igoogle homepage I have an application called 'Reminders from God.' Today's says, "Have no fear. Joy- radiant joy must be yours. Change disappointment to joy."

I'm taking my kite.
And this book.

If you're the praying type, feel free to send out a few for the women who will be gathered this weekend.
