Things that made me smile today

I’m thinking that these posts should be a Monday tradition.  Because, you know, it’s Monday, and sometimes we just need a little cheer.

Although today was simply fantastic.

First, I was excited for breakfast, because I needed to get a fruit fix after a weekend away that was super fun but sadly lacking in the fruit department.  Good start to the day.

Then I only had one class.

Then I spent some good time with a staff member from Cru, just talking and sharing and learning.

Then I had a fun lunch with some people from Navs.

Then I came back a took a really long nap.  By accident.  But it was good.

And the one thing that really made me smile and possibly made my year was getting a package from my friend.  You see, Mellie and I are quite a pair; we have zany ideas and do ridiculous things together.  And I really, really wanted to wear a certain dress as my Halloween costume, and she had made it, and she went to all the trouble of mailing it to me just so I could dress up and be one happy little camper.  After I dragged myself out of bed from my nap, and sleepily checked my email, I woke up in the space of about a nanosecond when I saw an email from Housing that I had a new package.  I ran outside, across the street, into Simmons, and practically flew back to my room to open it and try it on.

Then Kelly and I and Rachel went to RigaTony’s for dinner, an awesome little Italian dining hall.  And we got there right before the line.  And it was fabulous.

And then we had a Bible-study hang-out with all the girls and guys freshmen Bible studies on South; we watched It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and drank apple cider and played Taboo and generally had a blast.

And I don’t have a whole lot of work left to do tonight.

And I got a letter today.

And I don’t have any papers or tests due this week, and I have fun stuff planned for every single night.  (Tomorrow: Howard Dean/Karl Rove debate; Wednesday: Bible study; Thursday: Cru; Friday: Navs in costume; Saturday: Cru Halloween party…)

Yup.  This is a very smiley day, and it looks like one smiley week.

love & fun,
