13 Things

Haven't been feeling great this week and it gets really discouraging.
Don't worry, I'm not here to be sad, though;
here are 13 things that made me smile this week!


1.  Crazy Arizona plant


Saw this amazing agave outside Target. . .


Mom was amazed, too!



2.  Sleeping Juvy on my lap



3.  A super cute new outfit!

(and Mom in the background)
dress: Calvin Klein
bag: Betsey Johnson
shoes: Roxy


4.  All the beautiful scarves on offer at TJ Maxx

It looks like a painting!


5. This gorgeous, silly, upside-down bird

On Monday, this Gila Woodpecker came to our feeder.
We don't have a huge number of them in our neighborhood, so this was an exciting event.



6.  New purchase this week: Betsey Johnson wallet

bought from Ross for $16.99, original price $58!


Ooo!  Shiny gold inside!!!


7.  Cartoon advertising for fruit?  Yes, please!



8.  Sunshine, blue skies, and palm trees!




9.  Non-GMO corn starch

 (and only $1.99 at Target).
Corn is the most highly genetically modified food so far, 
so I was extra keen to find a safer version and I did!


Also gluten-free.

10.  Successful new recipe

I used it to make this lovely sweet and sour chicken.
Though the broccoli wasn't probably such a great idea.



For my parents' SuperBowl shindig,
my job was to make a turkey.


Greg's Mom's recipe seemed simple and very tasty, so I tried it.
I had to call to make sure I had all the details.


I also borrowed her pan.


11.  The turkey came out great!!!



Greg carved it up.


I found the wishbone


And we had a nice big container of turkey for sandwiches!



12.  Stephen brought me this umbrella cover as if it were prey!



13.  Dad and Greg playing foosball.



I hope your week has been excellent and that you're feeling spunkier than I am!
