I'm a twenty-nine year old Army wife currently living near a large Army post. I have an unhealthy obsession with Dr. Pepper, the Internet, cloth diapers, and ridiculous TV shows. I'm a stay at home mom to two beautiful daughters, AJ and Amelia. We also have a 6 year old beagle named Abby who is as dumb as a box of rocks.

The Book Of Awesome!

I was watching the Today show on Tuesday morning and they featured an author who created a blog and subsequent book that basically list awesome things that make our lives good amidst all the negative things going on in the world. He now has a second book available as well!

As they were listing off awesome things that were included in the book as well as things that Today show viewers had sent in to Meredith, I started thinking about how easy it is to overlook the little things in life that make us smile.

Some of the things on the blog are silly, like:

Optimistic Weather Dressers (aka people who dress for the weather they wish was happening, rather than what is really going on outside).

But some of the things really are simply awesome, like:

Eating a free sample of something you have no intention of buying.

I mean, everyone loves free samples, no? I know I do!

Inspired by this blog, I've decided to dedicate my Friday blog posts to the little things that make my life awesome!
  • The smile on AJ's face each morning when I go to get her out of her crib.
  • An ice-cold Dr. Pepper from Sonic.
  • Fresh, clean sheets on our bed.
  • D being happy with his new job.
  • Hot coffee in the morning.


  1. Clean sheets on a bed is awesome! In fact, I change my sheets every Friday, nothing feels quite as good as getting into bed on Friday night!

  2. I love this idea! Why My Life is Fabulous Friday :)


I'd love to know what you think...
