fridays are great. but this friday is especially great. why? because it's my mom's birthday!
happy birthday, mom! thank you for all that you've done. for teaching me to be generous, through the way that you live. for teaching me to have a positive self-image and to be confident with who i am. basically, thanks for everything. you da best and i love you!

(pardon the interruption. now returning to regular programming.)

here's five of my favorite things from this week:

1. i woke up wednesday morning to the sound of rain outside my window and decided that it pretty much doesn't get better than that. unless you add a movie, sweatpants, and breakfast in bed. yeah, that sounds good.
2. i bought a bike earlier this week and have loved going on bike rides with my sister this week. 

3. these guys. nuff said.
4. less than 60 days until my future roomie moves in! yessss!

5. this book is hilarious. if you're looking for a new read, check it out.
