Currently: 4/4/12

Life is good on the patio!
Celebrating: Today is the 27th anniversary of my parents engagement! (Insert awwwww here.)  They are the best parents that I could have ever asked for and I am so glad that they are Everett's grandparents!
Raeann and Ben (Mom and Dad) (Gran and Pigpaw)
Celebrating (Continued): Today is Star Wars Day! May the fourth be with you! Read more about Star Wars Day here and here!  Visit the Star Wars website to send your very own E-Card to your favorite Star Wars fan!

Obsessing Over: Starbucks Caramel frappuccinos have long been an obsession of mine but at 410 calories a pop they are a bit indulgent. I am hoping that I can control myself especially since frappuccino happy hour starts today! 

I practically shrieked when I saw this email!
Pure deliciousness (Photo found Here)

I have found a stand in of sorts for my coffee loving self- the almost as scrumptious runner up, the one, the only, the bottled Vanilla frappucino!  I picked one of these puppies up at the local Exxon the other day and they are pretty good!  I do wish they made a caramel flavored one but alas.  So these little guys now have a permanent shelf in my fridge and are saving me a little money too, which is an added bonus! They run about $6 for a 4-pack at Target (my favorite store) rather than the almost $5 for a caramel frappucino! They are also only 200 calories (for the small bottle) which is nice for my waistline too (it's almost bikini season people!)  
Ahhh so good! (Photo found Here)
Eating:  I can't get enough of this chewy "granola" that I made the other day.  I think I might have to start doubling the recipe because this stuff goes quick at our house.  It has a great sweet to salty ratio that makes it hard to stop eating it- and it's made out of good for you stuff so I don't feel bad eating it... lots of it! 

Anticipating: My next tattoo appointment - this afternoon! Super excited! Check out this post out for pictures of my last session. 

Listening To: Dixie Chicks, Not Ready to Make Nice.  It is starting to be nice outside which means you can roll the windows down, blast the music, and sing at the top of your lungs and this is the perfect song for that! :) 

Reading: Nothing BUT I am going to start reading something because I love reading. Anyone have any suggestions?

Working On: Organizing the small stuff around our house that often gets overlooked. I've been keeping a list for myself and I just add to it every time I think of something that needs to get done. It's a work in progress but so far, so good!

Looking At:  This sweet sleeping boy.  Is he not adorable?  I am so blessed to have him.
