{my little buddy with his little buddy hanging with me as I put my makeup on this morning}

What are you guys up to this weekend? Our weekend is shaping up to be a nice one. Tonight we will most likely stay in with Thai food and netflix- we are such creatures of habit. On Saturday morning I want to make a visit to the paint store to pick out a new color for the wall behind our bed. I’ve been inspired to paint it a dark green or blue color- idea 1 , 2 & 3. It’s a floating wall and almost exactly the length of our bed so I imagine it will look like a giant headboard amongst all the white walls in our room. Does that make sense? It does in my head. Saturday afternoon we are going to a dodger game with a big group of Brian’s family to celebrate a 90th birthday. I can’t remember the last time I went to a baseball game. I’m not a huge baseball fan but I am a fan of dodger dogs and spending a summer afternoon outdoors with family. Sunday morning I’m sending Brian off to get a massage (his father’s day gift from Frank) while I tackle a dessert recipe for the father’s day bbq we are having for our two dads that afternoon.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend and happy fathers day to all the pops out there!

 things that have been making me happy recently…

a massage I got this week that put every other massage that I have ever had to shame. SHAME!

this weeks project 30 q&a– I loooooved Liz’s words. Did you read it?? You must! She’s such an inspiring soul

these guided meditations– I’ve taken to doing the three-minute body scan every morning

red/orange nails and toes

an afternoon movie date with my little brother. It’s hard to pin him down (he’s a very busy 20-year-old so when I do it’s quite an accomplishment

buying some new books

work…I’ve been loving my clients recently

watching orange is the new black

pink peonies (they will probably be on my happy list every week until I can’t buy them anymore)

the podcast mortified…so funny

white chocolate peanut butter cups

having Taline and Liam over for dinner

a long hike in temescal canyon with my girlfriend Devon. I haven’t done that trail in ages- so pretty!

this quote…“You will always be too much of something for someone; too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge. Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone–profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.”– Danielle Laporte

my husband…always my husband

this Tracy McMillan ted talk about marrying yourself…

What’s been making you guys happy recently???

    I married someone who was almost the direct opposite of me, in many ways. Then again, we had so many commonalities. I think we just go with a person who completes us, and not in the “Jerry Maguire” manner, but one who encourages us to complete ourselves.
    Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads on your end.
    I will likely spend tomorrow in Victoria, BC and see whether I can get over to see another “Dad” in Half Moon Bay, BC-north of Vancouver.

    Oh, Kate! You have just made my month by giving me the honor of being part of your project 30 q&a! I have been so very humbled by being a part of this. xoxo

    I hope that you had a wonderful weekend… sounds like the plans were just perfect. And, my vote for the pain color is #1. I’ll be excited to see what you and Brian chose! 😉

    Fabulous happy things, Kate. Thanks for sharing your appreciation of the little, most important, things in life. Very inspiring! Have a beautiful week! xoxo

    I love red/orange nails too! Towards the end of May I switch over 🙂 The best summer color. Also, I’ve never tried those peanut butter cups but I’ve heard rave reviews. I’ll have to buy some after I finish the ‘Whole30’ 🙂
