A Happy Post

So I am up early today {yes I know when I post this it's going to be much later...because thats how I roll}. I woke up this morning feeling like total crap {and no I'm not pregnant} and I had to get up after about an hour of battling with myself.  Jesse was sleeping in {I just heard an alarm or phone call} and I was enjoying a cup of coffee and the company of our four-legged friends.

Coffee makes everything better, or at least me happier, I think.  I don't know what it is, but I love it.  Whats even worse is that I absolutely love this weather we are having -- even though it seems more like fall than summer.  I do like this time of year:  the leaves changing, the weather becoming crisp, the fall decorations, baking treats, and Thanksgiving on the distant horizon.  But before that I am going to be going back to work {ick} for a little while at least.  In a couple of weeks I am going to be going with the husband, fam, and dogs {there will be four of them} to the beach {Long Beach to be exact} to the Rod Run to the End of the World that they host the weekend after Labor Day every year.  My husband, family, friends, sand, surf, {I would say sun, but this is Washington}, hot rods, and amazing seafood....I don't think it gets any better.  Thinking of a cool day at the beach with a cup of coffee in a sweatshirt and just....Peace.  I love it.

Yesterday we celebrated my mom's birthday, going to this place called HG Bistro in Puyallup {if you're looking for a new place to try I recommend it.  It gets busier as the night progresses so if you go on a weekend you might want to get a reservation}.  There was five of us and each one of us got something different.  I had the salmon, my mom had the stuffed chicken....It was pretty great.  We had dinner, came back to the house for some goofing around {led by my husband of course}, pictures, cheesecake, and ice cream {random, I know}.  Good times.

To round out this post, watch this video.  {I discovered this courtesy of Adventures of Superman and Mrs. S.}  You may have seen this, but it's pretty great....

Have an amazing weekend everyone!
