Another day, another #100happydays update! I want to get these posts out of the way so I can get on to my book reviews, my 101 in 1,001 updates, my September goals update, my October goals list and other bloggy stuff. Enjoy!
Day 22 // Anyone else find it ironic that day 22 was a Taylor Swift song? I feelin’ twenty twoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. No? Ok, move on.
Day 23 // While out celebrating Ado’s birthday we ran into some pretty long service. I don’t even want to say it was bad, because the waitress and the manager were so apologetic. While it took us 20 minutes to get our drinks and over an hour for our food they then comped our meal. I wish we could say we tipped our waitress like this Iowa couple, but I ain’t rolling in the hundos, so we tipped her 30%.
Day 24 // As one of the oldest living babysitters alive who works a full-time day job I only babysit for families that are fun. You know whats fun about this family? They’ve got an adorable golden retriever puppy (you’ll see her in my next post), they’ve got this gorgeous barn, and most importantly their kids have the same TV interests as me. Case in point: Girls Meet World. If you are a late 20-early 30-something you can’t tell me you weren’t at least curious about this comeback and you also can’t tell me that you are slightly jealous that I had an excuse to catch it.
Day 25 // No one’s got a better best friend and roommate than I do. In preparation for my surgery Jenn got me my favorite tea and two books from my wishlist, Someday, Someday, Maybe and Big Little Lies!
***this is where my days get messed up slightly if you follow me on instagram – bear with me people I’m down a gallbladder and was medicated**
Day 26 (really 27.. oops) // I recovered from getting my gallbladder removed at my parents house in NH or as I sometimes call it “my country home”. Seriously, though my parents like less than 10 miles from Manchester, NH (NH’s “city”) and 45 miles from Boston their street is legit country. Corn fields, a full blown farm (Wilson’s), a petting zoo, oh yah and spooky world! You can actually see the stars at night too! I snapped this photo right before the meds kicked in and went sleepy city at 7:30 PM on a Saturday night.
Day 27 // Yup, nearly 30 and this guy traveled with me to my parents to assist on my recovery. Monkeys are my jam. I think they are the cutest animals ever (aside from that whole slinging poo thing they do) and I even gifted my oldest nephew (now almost 7!!!!!!) a monkey during a field trip to Babies R Us before he was 1 that he still has, his name: Bo-Bo. Here’s hoping Tommy takes him to college.
Day 28 // Speaking of nephews, they came over for dinner at my parents house on day 28! I somehow snapped photos of 3 out 4 of them (sorry Tommy!). Top left: Andrew using my SIL’s phone, he figured out Siri and kept putting the phone to his ear and saying “DADA” (thinking it was my brother/his dad calling), Siri responded “Sorry I don’t know who your father is” (the adults cried they were laughing so hard). Bottom left: Charlie and Teddy watching Spongebob after dinner and before dessert (note: whenever my nephews finish dinner at my parents house they always tell my mom “Great cook Nana!” – it melts everyone’s heart!). Right: Charlie and Teddy made me get well cards while Tommy was at school.
I asked yesterday too, so clearly I want to know – whats making you happy?
