We Are Essentially on 34th Street

Miracles do happen.  I am starting to believe there might actually be a Santa, an Easter Bunny, a genuine chance that my VitaMix might transform my skin into JLo quality glow and beauty.

First, Cole successfully attended, participated in, and completed an entire swim lesson on Tuesday. After being asked to leave his prior swim lesson, and then his gymnastics class on Monday I had little hope this might ever happen.  It was pure joy.

Side note:  You know what else is pure joy?  The adorable factor running rampant around here that has a good chance of assaulting me all summer long.  Love.


Second miracle, I am typing this from the safety and joy of MY computer. A nerd-man named Chris came over to my house to replace my hard drive, talked to me a lot about kale, and listened to me threaten him when I told him I wasn't going to let him leave my house until I could surf the web for Gap purchases all night and he had heard every tearful moment of my journey to have the computer fixed. 

It's possible I totally creaped him. 

He shared a scary tuna melt recipe on his way out the door so I think he actually might have been in love with me.   I'm not going to be able to leave Alex for him though because the recipe including spreading mayonnaise on a piece of bread and got worse from there.  He claimed he doesn't serve any sides with this, just several tuna melt sandwiches.  I was afraid.

He did fix my computer though...

Third miracle, I am actually starting to fall in love with one of the funniest looking dogs ever.  I was worried that I might not ever love like I loved Indiana, but we officially have a new dog. 

A strange mix of Chinese Crested and Maltese has resulted in...Bea The Wonder Dog.


I can't wait for Christmas now that Santa could actually be coming!  I'm going to start writing letters now. 

It's also important for you to know, though not important enough to write a post about:

1. I am in LOVE with the new show New Girl.  If you aren't watching, you are missing out.
2. I figured out a delicious kale smoothie recipe.
3. I bought three shirts today at The Gap for less than $7.  I love The Gap.
4. Ben & Jerry's has life altering fro-yo, raspberry and fudge chunk.
5. I can't stop reading these stupid Stephanie Plumb novels, currently reading about 2 a week.

I'm reading Sizzling Sixteen right now! I am in love with Stephanie Plum. I want to be her. (Ok, so maybe it mostly has to do with the fact that I wish I had a Ranger and a Morelli in my life, but whatever).

Yay for miracles!! I hope they continue so long you don't have to consider them miracles anymore!

Love Stephanie Plum and can you please share your kale smoothie recipe - maybe in a recipe-ish? or just in the comments, either will work. :)

The goggles are so cute! And yay for successful swim lessons and working computers! I am in love with New Girl too! I just read One for the Money last week. It was good, and I love that there are a ton of books in the series so I can keep reading for a while!
