Little Comebacks (Insta-Gratitude Week 37)

When you're reading this, I'm buried in paperwork again probably forgetting what day it is... I know, how could I not remember hump day?  Saying that Tuesday was busy is an understatement.  I'm happy to be taking a few minutes before drifting off to sleep to remember my little moments of gratitude this last week.

It's a little hard to believe that just last week, I was in sunny California.  I'm pretty excited to have a little time to actually go through the pictures and share some of my favorites... one of these days.

Our weekend was spent lounging around with the dogs, eating chili and cinnamon rolls and celebrating our dear friend, Louise, at her surprise party on Saturday.  She is the one that is the proud mama to Large Marge - the puppy that has stolen my heart.

And then there's this week at work.  It's pushed me further into the stress zone than I have been in a while, but there have been a few little moments that help keep me smiling.  Enjoying my dessert in bed last night was phenomenal.  Today, after 11 hours at the office and a few more ahead of me in the hotel, we found a restaurant for dinner that had a full wall of ridiculous stuffed animals (like taxidermy stuff, not teddy bear stuffed.)  I couldn't help but laugh.  It led to an entire dinner discussion about the difference between badgers and wolverines, which was a nice break.

This week kind of sucks, but I'm quite grateful for my blog and the little tiny moments that feel like a comeback after a long day.  Link up and tell me what you're grateful for - it will make my day.

Insert Classy Here - Gratitude


  1. Sounds like it's been a good week! Enjoy the rest of it.

  2. ugh samesies; work is sucking major bag right now. but that's what wine is for, right?!

    hope things let up at work but until then, eat dessert and drink wine *clink*!

    Vodka and Soda

  3. Taxidermied animals freak me out in a restaurant. I can't handle them! But I do like random conversations so I'm sure it was a good tradeoff. And now I want cinnamon rolls.

    I have a gratitude post for today but I think I'm missing the linkup! Is it the "link within" thing? Help!

  4. Work is INSANE right now! Dessert in bed sounds like an amazing way to combat some stress.

  5. I just found your blog from Lauren's page and already like you because you're from MN! My parents are from there and all of my extended family is still there.
    Dessert in bed = :)
    And now I want cinnamon rolls and puppies!

  6. love the taxidermy tackiness. sorry this week has been rough on you - at least it's hump dayyyy! how has it already been a week since you were here??

  7. Hope your Cali trip was amazing!! I love everything about San Fran!
