Share Your Good News {Living Outside the Stacks}

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I like to do a little something called “Fist Bump Friday”, where I encourage my friends to share something that has made them happy during the week. Sometimes we get so bogged down with life and the crazy that comes with it that we forget to recognize the good things. So I thought it’d be fun if we all shared and celebrated together.

So please, share your good news in the comments below. Remember, it doesn’t have to be big or earth shattering. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.

This week I’m happy that I managed to make a decent cup of coffee after drinking something that tasted a lot like brewed dirt on Tuesday.

What made you happy this week?

After everything that has happened in the last week, I don’t want to be accused of taking anything for granted. So my big plans consist of enjoying the warm weather with my kids, having friends and family visit (maybe even throw some yummies on the grill) and just being.

And speaking of hanging out, the hubs and I had a date night with some friends this past weekend… We went to lunch, saw a movie, and just talked. I kept my outfit pretty casual because we also went on a tour of our friends’ new home which is in the final stages of construction and I’m not trying to break my neck looking all cute and e’erything.

So what’s up with you guys? Any plans for the weekend? The summer?
