Finding the happiness.....

Some days are simply about finding about the happiness in simple things.......

...simple things making me happy this week

My New Locks
 I have been lusting over Giulianna Rancic's ombre hair for months now....and Saturday I finally did it! This is the fresh-from-the-shower-frizzy-no-curl-view....the tamed version is much better I swear!

(please love the giant blonde frizz fluff....it has a pulse and stomach all its own)

When it's curled....it totally looks like this
.... in my dreams

My Co-worker!
As I was lounging by the pool on Sunday refusing to give up summer  enjoying the last few weekends of summer, I got a text from my co-worker saying she'd transferred a massage over to my name for the following week. My muscles rejoiced!

Happy Tuesday.

LOVE Caroline Country! So glad someone else is able to appreciate them, too! Believe it or not, I prefer their renditions more than the original!

If you like them, check out some Tyler Ward covers, too. He's fantastic!
