Happiness is spilling over this summer.

31 July 2008

There have been several new babies, raises, new jobs, new houses, old houses getting new renovations, children learning new things, showers, and all kinds of other little happinesses spilling over this summer. I feel sometimes like I am MORE happy for the happiness of my friends than I am for my own little triumphs. It is just so incredible to see amazing women who work hard, take control of their lives, and do for others constantly, getting the things they want in their lives. Happiness and celebration begets more happiness and celebration and if this summer is any indication... there is a lot of it out there. Mostly, I am so thankful and happy for the following:

  1. Stace is a mommy. A long overdue, lovely, wonderful mommy. I know she is enjoying every second with Gavin. I cannot wait to meet him.
  2. Hott cop is going to be just that. OFFICER W is going to be loose on the streets soon. My husband is having handcuff fantasies already. I (probably Lisa too!) am having fantasies about getting out of speeding tickets. I am so incredibly proud of her for sticking it out, busting her butt working out, and most of all for staying positive(ish) and knowing she can do this.
  3. Steph is MOVING TO CHICAGO. She is giving her dream job a try while her non-dream killing hubby holds down the fort here in T-town. (You rock J!) We are all going to miss her terribly terribly terribly much, but we're secretly excitedly planning how many times we can visit her.
  4. Jen, you know you'll be added to this list as soon as you hear back about your interview! Bling or not, you rock and you deserve this!

Sometimes it is the little things that mean the most, but lately it has been the big HUGE life changing things that need to be acknowledged.

Yay for good news! Tell Dave that I don't think I will be issued any fuzzy handcuffs....but maybe I can *try* to work something out!

Jen said...

Aww, yay for everybody! I hope I get to add myself to the list, but even if I don't, I'm super happy for everybody else!!

Emily said...

I'm so happy for everyone. We need to celebrate sometime soon!

Also, AM, I think you could probably turn your regular handcuffs into fuzzy ones without too much trouble...I'm sure you and D could figure something out.

I'm happy for everyone, but I wish I had something to add to the list. Oh wait, I almost passed out in church and at the Indians game last Saturday, and I was really crazy lightheaded and my stomach felt weird but I didn't throw up, but it stayed that way for a few days, and I thought I was pregnant, but I'm NOT, so I guess that's happy, because now I won't miss out on getting completely trashed at Jessica's wedding, and I'll still be skinny in my bridesmaid dress. So yeah. Oh, ALSO, I got a coupon for $1 off Cheerios!

And I have fuzzy handcuffs, if anyone wants to borrow them...

Stacey said...

Aw, thanks michelle! I know I love how many great things are happening for people too. We all certainly deserve since we are a bunch of rockin ladies : ) Thanks for all the caring support, it made all this even more exciting sharing it with such wonderful friends!
