  • getting to sleep in late (uh to 8am) because it's Spring Break
  • having the most beautiful day outside that was just like that fabulous March of '97 day in Austin when I fell in love with the city (and with all the fresh oj and chips and salsa I consumed)
  • the baby finally feeling better after 5 days of sickness
  • the Heather Ross blog tour
  • finding out that an Alabama Chanin workshop is coming to my city in May (but wishing I had some extra money so I could attend)
  • getting the haircut that should have happened over a month ago
  • eating paletas (I had tangerine; Ely had chocolate strawberry)
  • playing at the park for hours, though it didn't feel that long, and having fun with the school friends who were also there
  • watching my son take off on his balance bike
  • watching my daughter swing and slide with complete joy on her face
  • being the first person to check out the first copy of Molly Wizenberg's A Homemade Life from the library
  • the husband coming home late so I can start reading A Homemade Life right away (well as soon as the kids are asleep)
  • eating reuben sandwiches for dinner with leftover chocolate chip cookie tart for dessert
