I realize that I title all my Friday posts "tgif". Not creative. But when Friday finally comes, I really am thanking God (or some omnipotent spiritual being)--every single time. I know a lot of you must feel the same. Unless you're one of those unfortunate ones who has to work on the weekends (or never gets a break). Then maybe you're doing your happy dance on another day. I remember working retail (for more years than I would like to admit) and having to work long days on the weekend and having my time off be some random day during the week. It was surreal--like, hey, the world doesn't stop on MY day off?

I'm doing a happy dance because I got not one, but *two* wonderful little packages this week. First, thank you thank you to Mary Ann over at A Very Mary Design for last week's giveaway. I cannot remember the last time I won something. Such a beautiful handblown pendant with a great story, too. I like just holding it and rolling it around in my hand. Yes, I am strange. Don't ask me to show you my "worry stone" collection of smooth rocks that I have amassed. Because I will. And you will regret asking.

My mom sent me some Clover Pocket Templates--apparently they were on Martha a while back, but I never seem to catch her show. She's my designated I-saw-this-on-Martha-and-you-just-have-to-have-it person. It's nice having my own personal shopper. And these ribbon balls from JoAnns. Man, I am a complete sucker for packaging. They are the grown up version of those bouncy balls in vending machines you always begged your parents for. So worth throwing a fit over.

Today we have sunshine! Hoping it stays that way through the weekend. We're running a 10K on Sunday, which would be so sad and soggy in rain. Don't worry, I'm not one of those crazy skinny runner types. After I run, I'm eating Superbowl food until I explode. It's all about balance.

welcome, little birdies!
