My Happy List
Happy Tuesday Evening, My Lovelies!  Welcome to My Happy List!

Sorry I've been MIA since Friday.  We went out of town for a college visit over the weekend, and my computer froze.

My Happy List

1.   I.  Love.  Geniuses….especially those at the Genius Bar at the Apple Store.  *squee*  They unfroze my computer, and I don't think I lost anything.  I made my appointment, and they actually helped me at my appointed time. YAY!!!  I had to take a few things out of my schedule today, but it was so worth it to get my computer unfrozen.  Having a working computer makes me so happy!

Just kidding. 
The genius who helped me must be on Santa's Nice List this year!

2.   Over the weekend, we took Shelley to her first college visit to Judson College.  Shelley's English teacher invited us, and Shelley took a VIP tour of the school, met Judson's President, Dr. Potts, and attended a very nice Christmas Tea.  One of the highlights of the tour was seeing the equestrian facilities: Judson boasts one of the largest covered arenas in the Southeast.  I want to go back to college and be a Judson Girl!!!

Judson College has her own Wedgwood China in pink, of course! 

At the end of the tea, the girls sang Christmas carols on the curvy stairs in Jewett Hall.  Here is a snippet of the concert:

3.   I ate lunch with three friends today, and two are cancer survivors.  Both are truly walking miracles, and it was such a blessing to get to hug them and enjoy being with them today.  I'm happy to know all of them….they are all three dynamic, amazing women.  

4.   Today I needed my sunglasses *HAPPY*  I haven't needed them in a couple of weeks.  Today was a gorgeous day, but *cold*

We went to the library for tutoring, and I checked-out three Christmas books to cuddle up with and read by a roaring fire Mr. Art @ Home will build for us  ;P

Have any of you read Melody Carlson?

5.   I'm so happy that I had several peeps link-up to Literary Friday.  I can't wait to visit you guys tonight!  :D

6.   I was nominated for an Inspirational Blog Award.  How sweet is that????  :)  *blushes*

7.   I've been on Pinterest a whole lot lately, and my inbox looks like a bomb went off because one of my pins has gone viral!  I pinned many of the recipes from Christmas Cookie Week, but one of Grace's cookies was the hit of all my pins.

Christmas Cookie Week was fun!  Thanks to my Canadian buddies who let me play along.  :D

Until next time…

  1. I'm glad your computer is fixed! I am thrilled you enjoyed your lunch with your friends and Shelley's visit was a good one. Thanks for sharing a part of the concert. Your blog is inspirational.

    No, I have not read any of her books and I am so HAPPY to tell you I have several (5 weeks worth) scheduled to post on Friday for your party. I finally caught up with them and pre-posted. Now all I have to do is link them up come Friday!

  2. That is a lovely happy list, especially the part about enjoying time with your three friends. :) I had fun with Cookie Week too and was happy to join in with you. All the best, Joann.

  3. Oh, you have lots of Happy in your life. I was happy for the sun yesterday too.

  8. Glad you are happy, Ricki. I've been busy and happy making crafts for Christmas. Thought you might like the Snowman Cheeseball I made. Best wishes at Christmas, Linda (Two Succulent Sisters changed to Crafts a la mode). :)

  9. Oh! So glad you had a good college visit. I want to go to and join a sorority. C: We can be 'sisters'.
