+ Seven years of marriage with my amazing husband and celebrating with a good arm workout.
+ My favorite jewelry line, Odette New York, is not only stunningly beautiful, but it also is created by a super wonderful woman. (Many thanks Jennifer.)
+ The prettiest salad I've ever seen.
+ The company picnic we attended this weekend. Mike's newest employee, Tad*, strolls up to him, shakes his hand and blurts, "So the old lady let you out of the house, huh?" (Cue laughing from the surrounding dozen or so colleagues. ) Mike, without missing a beat, smiles broadly, and says, "Tad, I'd like you to meet my wife, Lindsay." ha.
+ The lovely Emily who inspired this post and the group of dudes who inspired the name
+ The Summer Olympics. They give me the goosebumps. I've decided I need to pick an obscure sport and master it by 2016. Suggestions?
- The Argo Cascades are closed due to low water flow. We have been staring at them all summer, Mike's parents were watching baby J, and we didn't get to go down them. Argh.

1) Aren't unexpected gifts just the best?!
2) Baby jeans. I'm convinced they were invented by a dude. A dude without a kid. A dude who watched his lady hop around the bedroom trying to tug on a pair of too tight jeans and thought, "You know what would be great? If parents could wrestle stiff non-stretchy fabric onto infants." Yeah.
3) Dundee, Scotland just went up in my book. This is probably my favorite recent grocery store purchase. This is a BIG statement coming from a former ginger hater. (Nooo, not that kind-of ginger.) It looks a bit like marmalade, which is admittedly scary. Although I don't think I've tasted marmalade since I was about 12. Doesn't matter though. This is good stuff. Find it, buy it, and slather it on some peanut butter toast.
