Happiness is...5 random (unimportant) things  
+ A Practical Wedding by Meg Keene has been incredibly helpful as I dive into wedding planning. I want a beautiful ceremony/reception surrounded by people we love. I want memories to treasure not insanity or unhappiness. This book, and the blog which inspired it, are helping me keep my mind.

+ Disney's Beauty and the Beast is as wonderful as I remember it. WG and I took my junior bridesmaids (4 & 6 years old) to see this in 3D a few weeks ago. The 3D didn't matter. The girls loved the story and I think the 6 year old has a new favorite princess.  I'm so happy I got to share one of my favorite fairy tales with them.

+ Smash is a tv series exploring the (fictional) making of a Broadway musical. The pilot is shiny, pretty and made for theatre geeks. Plus, there's Christian Borle! ♥ ♥ I'm looking forward to the story they want to tell. I just wish it had a different time slot. Mondays at 10 are already busy with Castle and Hawaii Five-0.

+ Les Miserables, the movie musical hits theaters this December. The 25th Anniversary Tour is Florida right now. WG is taking me to see it this Sunday.  It will be my seventh time seeing the show and WG's first.  I'm looking forward to seeing this show as I know there have been changes to sets and instrumentation.     

+ My iPhone is wonderful for me.  I don't have delusions about it.  I don't think Apple is the be all and end all when it comes to tech.  (I'm a PC girl!)  I just knew that when I upgraded I wanted a combination of my cell phone and my iPod Touch.  That's what I have now.  I can call, text, email, surf the net, listen to music, stream Netflix and read books on the Kindle or Nook apps with or without wifi.  I'm a happy girl.

5 Happy Things  
1. My new haircut!  I went to see my soon-to-be sister-in-law and she gave me the cut I've wanted for months, Castle's (3rd season) Kate Beckett.  My hair is a tad shorter.  This is Florida in June.

2. Aveeno's Positively Radiant Tinited Moisturizer has replaced foundation for everyday wear this summer.  It's light but seems to stand up to the heat and humidity.  I don't ask for much else when it's 100+ degrees outside.

3. Summer always brings some new tunes.  This week Lady Antebellum's "Just a Kiss" and Colbie Caillat's "Brighter Than the Sun" are getting a lot of play.

4. USA FYI 2011!  USA has launched a campaign to get its original programming, including White Collar, Burn Notice and Royal Pains nominated for Emmys this year.  I'm not sure that anything will come of this, but these shows (and Psych!) make me smile.

5. My Boy! ♥ Whether we're volunteering at the animal shelter, cheering on our favorite hockey teams, teaching Sunday School, watching Doctor Who or exploring the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, he makes me very happy.
