Things making me veddy, veddy happy right now...

1. So I asked my students the following question as a short response assignment in class today: "What if life had a reset button?" And I got the most adorable response from this one girl, who basically said she would go back in time to last weekend when she went to an all-you-can-eat buffet and apparently ate "like a piggy" (her words). My students make my heart happy, they're so darn cute.
2. Speaking of eating like a piggy, Ricky took me to Cracker Barrel today after work for no good reason other than I was craving breakfast at 5:00 PM. This may not have been good for my waistline, but I loved it nevertheless. And I love Ricky a WHOLE lot. He gets me like no one else.
3. I am loving the cooler weather that has decided to grace South Florida. I'm not breaking out the boots and jackets ... yet. But I did buy a pretty new scarf the other day. I can't wait to wear it!
4.  Starbucks brought back their Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. And all the angels rejoiced...
5. I ordered these feather earrings from Bueno Bueno and they arrived today. I immediately ripped open the package and tried them on. And oh yeah, fell in love. I've been wearing them around the house all night. Speaking of feathers... have you entered my latest giveaway yet? If you love feathers, you might want to!

Pardon the blur -- this was taken with my iPhone.
What's making you happy right now? :)

Tango's been making me happy at the moment. I joined the club at the beginning of the semester, I've been tangoing for about two months, and I think it's one of the things keeping me sane. It's tough, but it's fun, and it's helping me trust people more... just a little.

Also: somebody copied about 18 hours of tango music onto my thumb drive, and that music is sitting in my computer. This makes me very, very happy ^^

you know i've actually never ordered anything at starbucks before. i know, i'm the last on the planet.

once, when i was about 10, we went to an all-you-can-eat buffet while my grandparents were in town. they had mac & cheese, and if there's one thing you should know about me, other than me loving animals, it's that i'm a fool for mac & cheese. so, after we ate and were walking out, i complained that my stomach hurt from being so full, and just a minute later, my belt broke. just popped right open. i was mortified. luckily that hasn't again, but maybe that's because i don't wear belts now!
