Random Happiness

I thought I'd share a few totally random things that have made me happy lately.

1. The newest Hungry Girl Cookbook!
Can you say yummy? I L-O-V-E this cookbook! I can't say enough great things about it! I bought it one week ago today and have already tried five recipes out of it! I you know me you know what an accomplishment this is! How could you say no to guilt free Overstuffed Peanut Butter 'n Banana French Toast (pg. 288 people!) It has also made me start going over my other Hungry Girl cookbooks too!

2. Happy Mail! I received several cool surprise packages this week from in person friends and happy mail people and they were not even from my assigned person of the month!

Jamie has this great Happy Mail group! It is fun to meet new people even through blogland and it is kinda funny how you meet people that you want to keep in contact with even after the month is over!

3. Netflix video streaming through you Wii! Are you kidding me with this? Okay totally cool! I got my disk in the mail today. You just pop it into your Wii and magically a video store appears in your living room.

This is amazing because you can sign up one TV to video stream through the internet but now we can use the feature in the studio and in the living room! (99.9% of the time sports are on in the studio because that is were Jim's computer space is too. LOL!) The options of course are not endless but loads of cool movies that I have never seen before but wanted to! (I have a hard time sitting still through a whole movie without falling asleep. LOL!) I watched Matilda last night and am looking forward to this summer when I have a little more leisure time and will be trying to avoid the heat!

4. The most genius Mexican Food Restaurant survival idea ever from Donna! Ask for an order of corn tortillas when they bring out the chips! Of course I had to try this out and it was amazing! I put a little smear of guacamole rolled each one (of 3) up and dipped in salsa... yum and you get the whole dipping experience for less calories than 10 chips! I should probably mention my love for Top Shelf's light menu also or you'll wonder why I'm even thinking twice about chips. :)

I have been thinking about ordering the streaming disk for our you've convinced me to go for it.

Oh, and we're going for Mexican tonight...but I don't think I can do without the chips. I NEED my chips! lol

Peace & Love,

We got our instant streaming disk about two weeks ago and we haven't left the couch since. Seriously!
