Be Happy Challenge: Book You Love and Recommend

Cliche answer: The B-I-B-L-E, that's the one for me. I stand upon the word of God. The B-I-B-L-E. 

My non-cliched answer: Harry Potter! Hunger Games!

Be Happy Challenge: Favorite Recipe

This is my current favorite recipe.  I found this seriously super easy quiche a bit back, courtesy of Cat. 

Be Happy Challenge: Random Act of kindness

This is yesterday's post. Sorry I'm laying posting it. 

I'd prefer not to talk about whatever random acts of kindness that I've done. If I talk about them, then that kind of takes away from the act and puts attention on me. It's not about how good I am or I'm not. 

But I would like to encourage all of you to go out there (or even stay home and do it) and randomly do something kind for someone else.

Be Happy Challenge: Something I'm embarassed to love

This one is another easy one.

A TV show that I'm super embarrassed to love as much as I do: any of the Duggar's reality shows.

I have no idea how they do it. Those kids have manners and they respect each other and others. They impress me.

They actually came to Charlotte a couple of weekends ago, but I didn't know until I had already promised somebody that I'd help them out. Next time, though.

Happy birthday, Lauren!

My niece is FIVE today! I just can't believe it.

Lauren is the best big cousin I've ever seen. You can seriously see how much she loves "baby Selah". When we saw her just a few weeks ago, she wanted Selah to have whatever she had. No refusal to share toys/food/treats/attention/space with a little one much younger than her. No jealousy. It's pretty obvious that I'm not the only one who thinks she's the best. Selah agrees.

Picture of the girls together. Hard to stop them from playing.
I heard this song recently and it made me think of you, my dear.

Always be yourself
But if you can be a unicorn
Always be a unicorn

Happy 5th birthday, Lauren Olivia! Aunt Beth loves you so, so much.

Be Happy Challenge: Top 3 things that will instantly make my day

1. Coffee. Bring me a cup of my favorite (iced caramel coffee, yo) or join me for a cup.

2. Conversation. Talk to me. I spend the majority of my time with a 15mo who has horrible conversational skills. So far.

3. Notes. In the mail. In email. Via text. on facebook/twitter. Whatever. I like to know that I've being thought of.

Be Happy Challenge: Something that makes me awesome.

Everything. I am just that awesome.

Seriously, though. I don't know. I really don't know. I doubt most things I've done that could be somewhat awesome. My self-esteem, while some think it's good, is horrible.
