Oh Happy Day.

I come to you tonight with a rum and diet in hand, no pants on, and a grin on my face.
That might have something do with the rum and diet slash no pants gig.
Don't worry.
The only reason they are off is because they were absolutely covered in grass.
I decided to snag the trophy for world's best wife tonight by mowing, sweeping off the driveaway, AND picking up leaves with my bare hands.
Did you guys know that you actually have to pick up leaves with your hands sometimes to get them out of your yard?
Yeah I didn't either until tonight.
Surely I thought some genius would've invented a way by now to not have to physically bend down and pick up the leaves up with your hands.
Hey man who just jumped out of a bubble from 120,000 feet in the air...you think you could get on this task sometime soon?
I was just looking through my phone and realized I have few photos that pack a lot of "hey that makes me happy" punch.  Let's begin.
1. Lunch hours spent outside enjoying the 75 degree temps in late October.
2. Date nights at Chipotle. Obsessed.
3. Leaves that match my toes. More specifically, leaves that aren't in my yard that match my toes.
1. My muscular husband loading up our new goochie goo couch.
2. Mac and cheese. Need I say more?
3. Having a dog that demands we go through the Jimmy Johns drive thru. If you insist....
(follow along @livinginyellow on Instagram)
And then I found these girls photos.
And I thought oooooh now these. These pictures REALLY make me happy.
Let's begin.
First up, Shanna. A girl so cute I could eat her.
Except then I wouldn't be able to read her blog (like I do daily). I am pretty sure she had me at this outfit. Shanna's blog is growing like wildfire and it's no surprise. Funny+Real+Fashionable+Good writer=A recipe for success. The girl gets more comments than people who live in my hometown. Perhaps you should leave her one?
This next lady I am sure you have all heard of. 
Kelly is her name and hot legs are her game. I could go on about her but that would defeat the purpose of this post. Kelly is the genius behind The Messy Project (seriously such a cool idea...check it out asap). I constantly find myself amazed with how well Kelly connects with her readers. Seriously. She does it all. If you are in search of a California girl to be jealous of, this blog is for you.
Next up is Erin. Let's be real. I could stop there and we would already know she is awesome ; ) 
Not only does she hold the Eifle Tower in the palm of her hand, she writes a pretty great blog, AND makes scarves out of t-shirts. If that doesn't scream awesome I don't know what does. Oh wait, I know what else does. Making fun of yourself. Do yourself a favor and go check Erin out.
And last but not least, we have Debbie.
A big part of me just wanted to say Little Debbie just then. She has a strong love for her hunny, photography, and Friday's letters. Her spot on the web is a little piece of real life. The good, the bad, and the inbetween. I am going to go ahead and suggest you pay her a visit.
Annnnd there we have it friends.
Speaking of friends, how pumped are you that you just made 4 new ones?
If only making friends was as easy in real life as it is in blog land....
I'm off to go dodge every window in sight.
You know, to save the neighbor kids of having to see me..well pantless.
ps. Anybody else buy the new Taylor Swift CD? I'm totally diggin' it.
Happy weekend lover beans.



  1. aww mannn, I am jealous of your temps. Its getting pretty cold here and I am not I repeat not ready for winter.

    Yard work is harrrd eh? I only like riding the lawn mower and that's as much as I'll do

  2. Got ya beat... I am in my birthday suit with a glass of wine in my hand blogging and waiting for the clothes to be done in the dryer... BOOYA! Oh what alcohol makes us admit...

  3. Waaaait a minute! You have a drive thru Jimmy Johns!? Jealous does not even begin to describe how I feel right now!!

  4. You have GOT to be my favorite blogger. Like for realz, yo. And also, I'm totally diggin the new T-Swift cd, which is interesting since I just jumped on her bandwagon like two months ago... But what's even better than that is the Pitch Perfect soundtrack. I just can't stop repeating that bad boy.

  5. I knew I loved you for a reason....rum and diet is the ONLY way to go!!! Having one now...I am NOT lying...pinky promise...but I have my PJ pants on...thanks for the L-O-V-E!

  6. So. I believe the item you are looking for is the - very much invented- leaf blower. Sure it doesn't pick the leaves up; but you can get rid of them by blowing them into your neighbors yard. Then they can deal with them. Job well done! ;)

  10. they did invent something for that...a leaf blower! ;) thank me later.

  11. This is such a sweet post! Enjoy your warm weather and your weekend!

  12. I've never had Chipotle. Bad, I know. Love Shanna's blog!

  13. Hahaha..your comment about the leaves cracked me up! I basically said to my husband the other day that I was annoyed with all the leaves and we should invent something easier to solve the problem then a rake... he just gave me a funny look and said, "Danielle, somebody beat you to it. It's called a leaf blower."

    That man is so smart. That's why I married him ;)

  14. Okay so my (non-existing hubby) will never get me to do lawn work. So props to youuu sister!!
    And the fact that you don't have pants on makes me love you more.

  15. Just the memory of having to pick up leaves in the yard from when I was a kid makes my skin itch! You are definitely a good wife and deserve the rum and diet.

  16. super excited to be on your blog today!!! thank you for the sweet intro, made my day! you're the best Erin! happy friday! XO

  17. Oh happy day! A new fun blog to follow that started off about a rum! Hello this blog could not get any better! :)

  18. Thanks girl!! You are the best! :) :) I hope you have a great weekend!!

  19. Mac-n-cheese...Jimmy Johns. I love it all. And it's 1:30am and now I'm hungry. Crap.

    Love Shanna...she's the best!!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
