100 Happy Days -- Days 99&100

IT'S DAY 100 OF 100 HAPPY DAYS!!!!
~How fitting that I'm in Boston~

Happy Day Moment #99
* Convincing my old gym to let me work out for free as a 'guest'
*Running around with Al borrowing china
for my bridal shower she threw me (sunday)
One of the homes we borrowed china from was my first house I lived in when I moved here.
Hello Nottinghill
I texted daddy and he said I should hit the deli around the corner we fell in love with when he first dropped me off.
*Baking baby cheesecakes for the shower, 
taking short naps while they cooked cus I'm so stinkin' tired
* Attending an old roommates birthday party (croquet)
Backyard was luscious, but also chuck full of mosquitos. 

*Church at the beautiful LP1 Chapel. Saw my cousin, and
Bishop even remembered Clark's name!

*Walks. I love these streets.
*Everything is green. Even in mid-summer.
I used to envision walking this path when I was really homesick and it would calm me just to 'feel' the feelings of this walk again in my mind. 
*Got asked directions by a stranger on the street.
I knew the answer.

*Bridal Shower -- Tea Party Themed
 Proof that I still have friends!
 Allison bought individual teacups for everyone, McCall made butterscotch rice crispies, Katie cut fruit and cheese slices, Al made cheesecakes and bought my favorite Lindt chocolates (as did Amber for one of my gifts... props for friends knowing me so well), and KJ made the brownies. We went to two different stores just to find the right juice Al wanted, and the chocolate milk I wanted. 
A tea party w/o tea. That's the best kind. 
She strung the cutest little doilies in all the windows.
(no photos of presents, or myself. I promise both were there)
*A solo walk up upland street. I should take a photo of that too.

I started this 100 Happy Days series to help me better focus on the good things happening in my life, even when / because I was missing home so much.
Its helped.
I still love my home, but I see better now that my 'life' is in Vegas with him.
And I'm more excited after this weekend than I've ever been to get back to him.
I'm ganna keep checking off the boxes on my Wedding Day countdown,
and focus on the new home I'm going to try and set up with him,
wherever we go / stay in the next year ... or three or four...
together ~
