Saturday Smiles

Every Saturday, I try to post 5 things that made me smile during the week. Often I find myself getting caught up in the small stuff but this year I'm making an effort to be conscious of it. This year is about being happy and finding happiness even in the small things! Want to join me? Go ahead and post your Saturday Smiles!
1. Vacation.
Rental Car, accommodations, airline tickets and entertainment planned. It's all done! I am so excited to go on vacation. I'm just counting down the days. Literally I feel like this...

2. Canelo vs. GGG.
Clearly we know who I'm rooting for to win if this fight ever happens. Canelo gave up the belt and I think it's because he didn't want to come up 5 pounds in weight. Their promoters keep saying that the fight will happen but we have no idea when. The fans are guessing that it won't happen this year.

3. Warm Weather.
California is heating up. This past week was in the high 90s so everyone out here is planning for a hot, hot summer. I think they might be right because the weather feels like it did when I first moved out here and that was the hottest summer I had ever felt. I can remember on July 4th it was like 120 degrees and the electric grid couldn't even stay up. Let's hope it doesn't get that bad again.

4. Bosch Books.
It all started for me by watching the Amazon Prime series Bosch. We binged watched Seasons 1 & 2 and are now left hanging waiting on season three to come out. When I was telling a coworker this she informed me that it was made off of a book series. Indeed she was right! I got the first book by Michael Connelly and flew through it. Now I'm on book two. These books are great and I can see why they made the show off of them. Now I've got something to get me through until the next season starts.

5. Christmas Ornaments.

I'm my own little factory every night after I come home from work. I come home, get changed and relaxed, eat dinner and then start working on my ornaments. Some nights I can finish an ornament and then some nights I have to finish them the next. On the weekends I try to make at least 2-3 ornaments. I'm still loving making these! I'm taking orders so let me know if you see something you love. Once certain fabrics are gone I can't get them again.

What's making you smile?
