Little Happies: Skiing and Adopt A Blogger!

March 10, 2014

It’s time for the second round of Little Happies! I’m linking up over at Blessed to Be and you can join in the fun too, if you’d like!

Yet again I am happy for this post – to get me thinking positively and begin appreciating the Little Happies in our life. I absolutely, positively need to focus on the good in our life…



Jonathan and I decided to take a day off this week and hit the slopes at Loveland Ski area. It was a beautiful 50 degrees, partly-cloudy/sunny day. One of my goals this year was to get Jonathan to transition from a beginning skier to a novice. By mid-day we were skiing blues consistently and Jonathan was doing really well! Part of our fun was pretending like we were in the Sochi Olympics. 🙂 Afterwards we went to Beau Jo’s Pizza because they make a really good gluten free pie! Overall, a great day that left this wife very happy.



I love love love to wheel and deal. It might be my favorite of activities. Lately, this passion has been taking the form of selling items on eBay. This week I sold a Patagonia dress I haven’t worn in 4+ years for $25.99. Yes, I bought it for more than that years ago, but it served it’s purpose and I got good wear out of it. I was actually getting ready to donate it when I thought to list it. Glad I did!

The start of Lent. I am just really excited about some of the things God has called me to do this Lent – all of them centered around resurrecting my prayer life and intimacy with Him. That makes me so very happy and I’ve gotten a lot of consolation about it. Also, Jonathan has had a lot of success professionally this week with a project he’s helping execute – Lentsanity. If you know us, we are fitness gurus, specifically loyal to Shaun T’s programs (Insanity and most currently T-25). To our delight, on Ash Wednesday, Shaun T himself tweeted with #Lensanity. It was a great blend of our fitness and Catholic world all at once!!!

This blog post. WOW WOW WOW! It is going to make this Lent all the more powerful for me. In a weird way I felt like I’ve been in Lent for years…and this post helped me see why this liturgical season is oh so close to my daily life.


12 years

After the Oscars and 12 Years a Slave winning “best picture” we just had to see it.  We watched it this weekend and it was really intense. It didn’t make me “happy” per say (actually quite the opposite) but it was really well done. It’s frighteningly based on a true story. I think it’s important to understand history and what our American ancestors experienced through the real stories…and this movie accomplished that. I highly recommend it (not for children though, as it’s rated R for many reasons).



They now sell Truvia at our local Costco!!! It’s the best stevia-based sweetener (stevia is plant based and NOT chemical based) I’ve had that’s on the market, so I am very excited. It happened to be $4/off per box of 300 packets…so I bought two boxes. We officially have enough sugar packets for my coffee for well over a year!


I’ve been making more and more connections with some really awesome gals via the world of infertility blogs. I completely wish we didn’t “meet” via these circumstances but I am really grateful for their support, encouragement, and prayers. It’s amazing how through infertility, I feel an instant connection with these ladies. Who knows where our friendships will end up or if we will ever meet one another face to face… we shall see where God’s providence takes it all! I am grateful to know each of you and walk with you in our/your journey toward God’s will.
