things that make me feel lucky, even when i'm drowning in work and bothers like check-engine lights and fleas on the dog

ordering a 4' shelf from pottery barn with gift cards leftover from my wedding almost 2 years ago, and finding that they were worth almost 3 times the amount i thought (even though i intended to buy a bathroom light fixture that we picked out months ago only to find out it's no longer available.)

driving by the ocean twice a day, but getting the best view on the way home from work, which is amazing every single time. it's been looking especially aqua lately, which is my most favorite color.

having the check engine light turn out to be nothing, and not even getting charged for the service guy to figure that out.

not seeing a flea in two days.

Mmmmm - I love Pottery Barn!! Just last night I found a $50 gift card to IKEA at home. I'll have to go use that!

Oh and forever ago you asked about Owen looking like Scott and the answer is YES - they look exactly alike. It's pretty cute actually. Owen makes some of the same faces as Scott! Hope you guys are doing well!

and when you get your shelf it might even be in a brown paper package tied up with string. i am for SURE going to the beach tomorrow. there have been days when i really want to, but i think i would have fallen asleep on the beach and fried crispy. yay for no fleas!
