It Made Me Smile

This week was a great week filled with friends, moments, memories, food, and new beginnings.

1. Lunch with my lunch boo: This is something I can get used to.  He is a great man. Funny, kind, genuine, caring, passionate and all wrapped up in a cute package.  I’ve never had a lunch boo.  For those of you who don’t know what a lunch boo is, it’s someone you have lunch with on a regular, weekly basis, sometimes more than once a week.

2. Stay positive package: Love love love it.  Read about it here.


4. Fertility: I mentioned in a previous post  I was considering fertility preservation.  I still plan on writing a post about it but just wanted to mention, the news is good.

5. Dinner with Les:  A friend was here on a business trip and we met for dinner, which turned into dinner and drink, which turned into drinks and fabulous conversation.  I will never be bored in his presence.  I feel blessed to have such an amazing, understanding friend, who I know I can always lean on.  Here’s a picture of the dessert we shared, which I have to mention terrified me since he is allergic to strawberries (or was at one point).

7. Texas:  I am on my way to Fort Worth to have a girls weekend with my friend Jen! Jen is an amazing, smart, beautiful, strong woman.  And like Les, I feel blessed to have such a great friend I can always count on.

Have a fabulous holiday weekend lovies.  xxx


Positively Present

The other day, I mentioned here how I won two blog giveaways.  I received the first one today from Positively Present. It was so thoughtful and I loved every single thing…down to the packaging. So I wanted to share it with all of you.

Thank you so much Dani! You made my day!

P.S. The box came smashed from the post office, which I am sure contributed to the cracked frame.  No big deal.  It still made me 🙂


It Made Me Smile

In this edition of “It Made Me Smile…”

1. The San Francisco Giants win the World Series!  I am so proud to be a San Francisco native!

2.  Learning to be more patient with my sister really made me smile.  I took care of her after a long day of work and didn’t snap at her, which is a good thing.  I was proud of myself!

3.  Having lunch with a friend and laughing the whole time.  Not to mention the food was delicious!

4.  I won two blog giveaways in a day from Positively Present and Decadence for Divas. Thank you both. I feel truly blessed! And for those of you who haven’t yet GO CHECK OUT BOTH THEIR BLOGS! These ladies rock!

5. Are you sure we are in November? Because the weather sure doesn’t make it feel like it.  Can’t complain!

6.  Looking forward to all the things coming up next week! Feeling blessed!

It Made Me Smile

Here is my installation of It Made Me Smile Friday.


2.  My mother is visiting until the beginning of November.  I called her while I was at work just to see how she was doing.  She was relaxing on the couch while watching TV.  What made me smile?  When we were about to hang up the phone, she said, “Ok, Habibti. I’ll see you when you get home.”  For those of you who don’t speak Arabic, click here.

My mom. Love her!

3.  Can’t go without mentioning, GO GIANTS!  We tied the series!

4.  Finally got my car washed, which makes me feel more confident walking to my car and driving in my car! There is just something about a clean car! Now I am not embarrassed to be seen in it.  🙂

5. Got this in the mail and looking forward to living a more positive life.

6.  Went to dinner with my mom and sister and had a great time. Overdue family time!

7. Got packages in the mail which included two BCBG dresses and these!

Fingerless gloves I cannot wait to wear this winter!

8. Watched the Giants at the ballpark. Free food from food trucks and free beer! Even got to play in the dugout!

9.  My sister’s surgery was successful.  You see! Prayers are heard.

What made you smile this week?

1. Walking through Trader Joe’s and seeing Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pumpkin Cheesecakes, Pumpkins and everything pumpkins.

2.  Having a random stranger tell me “Nice figure.”  Just the motivation I need to continue my weight loss.  Ten pounds down, ten more to go.

3.  Having an unexpected, last minute dinner at my friend’s house.  Delicious!

4.  The Giants winning a game on Tuesday!

5.  Skyping for an hour and a half with a good friend and enjoying every minute single minute of it.

Welcome Callie!

The Family welcoming their newest edition!

9. And right before the delivery,

the Giants take the series and beat the Reds! Moving on!

10. And to begin my weekend, I got a massage!

I think that is a pretty fabulous week!  I know a lot of it had to do with the Giants.  But I can’t help it!  Love my Giants!
