So, I’m planning to make my Friday Five a regular feature. Today… five things that are making me very happy this week!
Number One: My husband and I, after years of hemming and hawing, finally signed up for Netflix! Full of excitment, I packed our queue full of new releases and TV series we’ve never seen. Since I’m a newbie, said queue was a complete cluster with zero organization, though I didn’t know any better. When we got our first DVD delivery on Saturday I was all kinds of excited, until I saw that we’d received Six Feet Under SEASON TWO, discs one and two. Yeah, seeing as how neither my husband nor I have seen Season One, we didn’t want to start with Season Two. So, feeling like a bit of an idiot, I sealed those discs right back into their convenient little envelops and tucked them into the mailbox on Monday, then immediately organized our queue. Imagine my surprise and delight when on Wednesday (a mere two days later!) Six Feet Under Season One, discs one and two arrived! Talk about quick turnaround! So, I’m a satisfied and happy customer and an official Netflix convert.
**In case you’re wondering, Six Feet Under is kind of awesome… I highly recommend it if you haven’t see it!
Number Two: I’ve read two amazing and completely different books this week –

Number Three: The new season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey starts Monday! I’m a total Bravo junkie and will watch pretty much whatever they air, but RHONJ happens to be one of my all time favorites. If you didn’t see Teresa’s table flipping fiasco last season, you must YouTube it immediately. Seriously, these women are so completely over the top, but there’s something about them (with the exception of Danielle, I think) that’s genuine and intriguing and oddly endearing. If Dina, Caroline, Teresa, and Jacqueline lived in my neck of the woods, I’d totally want them as friends!
Number Four: Tomorrow night I get to go see him:
I’m just a little excited!
Number Five: Last, but certainly not least, my precious girl who makes me happy every day of the week. After receiving a form rejection email yesterday, I told her I was feeling a little sad. She replied, “That’s okay, Princess Mommy. I still ‘lub’ you.” How could I possibly stay in my I’m-the-world’s-biggest-failure funk after something like that?
