Happy to be Alive, Because: The Office & Coconut Coffee.


1.  Holidays that fall on Friday mean days spent on the water.  



If holidays could fall on Fridays all the time, that would be fantastic.

2.  We've started watching The Office again.  This is my first time watching the show all the way through a second time, and I had really forgotten how perfect it was.  And how the whole show is made up of really good one-liners.

The office quotes

3.  My grandparents were talking about what kind of coffee I liked, and my grandpa said, "I bet she likes coconut coffee, because that's the kind of coffee that's in her book."  To know my grandpa actually read my book just warms my heart; the fact that he remembered the coconut coffee detail just melted me.

4.  I mailed out more headbands this week than I've ever mailed in a single week before.  That makes me really happy because it means I have an excuse to keep making more.  {psst...this code is still good.}

5.  For the first time in forever, I have zero plans this weekend.  And I could not be more excited about it.

What made you happy to be alive this week?

  7. I've only watched Season 1 of The Office. I'm ashamed to admit it. I should probably just start over so I can watch (and appreciate) the whole thing.

    I'm stopping by from the link up! Have a great weekend!

  18. Every weekend that we have "zero plans" ends up being the craziest and busiest of all weekends. I don't know how it happens, but it always does. You've been warned. :)

  20. I LOVE The Office! I have to admit I cried like a baby on the last couple of episodes! I was just so sad for it to end!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm watching The Office all the way through too! Until now, I had just watched episodes here and there but I was pretty apathetic about it. But oh my goodness. It's sooooo brilliant!

  22. Jim and Pam are still my ultimate couple inspiration. I really should watch the show again. And that bow is way too cute. I'm gonna have to order something from your store!

  23. Your grandpa sounds like a total keeper. I'd take him! :)
    Oh, and the Office! I think I'll need to start watching it again too. Thanks for the reminder. Ha.
    Sounds like you'll have a super relaxing weekend. Enjoy!

  27. I actually started drinking coconut coffee right before I read your book - I wondered the same thing if you really like it in real life! :) It's my FAVE! (And I wonder if there's a way I can make it at home.)

  28. I found you through the Oh, Hey it's Friday link up. I'm going to have to check your book out! It sounds exciting! Coconut coffee? Sign me up. Sounds like heaven in a cup. :-)

  29. Hopped over from September Farm! How cool that you wrote a book!!! I'm super jealous... I really would love to write. I just need an idea.... :)

  30. Your grandfather's comment is so sweet! I have no plans this weekend, too. I did that mostly because I start a new job on Monday and I want to be well rested for it. My new workplace is going to be chaotic and I'm coming from a very quiet and slow environment. :)

  31. Your grandparents are so sweet. I might want to watch the office again too. I bet there's so much I missed.

    ReplyDelete

  34. This post made me smile. It says so much about the person who makes a point to be thankful of the little things and the happy times in his/her life. I am definitely trying to do this more...to celebrate the happy moments in my life. :)

  43. The Office really is perfect. As is Parks and Recreation, which I just started re-watching. Last week was a little rough for me, but I did get to spend a lot of time reading, and that makes me feel alive and well. :)
