Some things that made me happy over the past week:
My Main Taste Tester got my car all shined up and cleaned the interior for me. I was dreading doing it and he knew that, so he took care of it while I was in Toronto. It was such a pleasant surprise to come home to.
I had a good friend over for dinner and a movie. I made a pasta dish and she brought dessert. It was nice to have a relaxing evening in. I love cooking for other people.
I was incredibly bored with my hair and a fresh trim and some blonde highlights really perked me up.
I got tickets to see my favorite band in the world, Fleetwood Mac! We saw them last year and it was one of the best nights of my life. I still get emotional thinking about it, as sappy as that sounds. I remember commenting after that if Christine would come back and I could see them with her, that would be the only way to improve the experience. Well, I got my wish! Christine is back and I was able to buy tickets on pre-sale. My hands were literally shaking when I typed my info. So overjoyed.
I got a Yonanas machine for Christmas but I haven’t tried it yet. When a frozen yogurt craving hit me a few days ago, I remembered I had the machine and made a Yonanas sundae instead. The texture is just like soft serve and it was really filling too. I was impressed! I have a feeling it will get a lot of use this summer.
This past weekend we made a last minute road trip to Manitoba to celebrate my brother-in-law’s birthday. We surprised him and it was so worth it.
