I know they say not to sweat the small stuff in life and most of the time that is true.   But there are days when it’s the small things that just get you through.  I woke up the other morning in THE WORST MOOD EVER.  I unfortunately have never been a morning person.  I would really love to be one of those people that wakes up all cheerful and bounces out of bed excited to see what the day will bring.  That is just so not me.  I am bitter that sleep time is over and my eyes literally hurt.  It takes me a cup a coffee, a hot shower and a few hours to feel awake.  Then I am a cheerful person that’s excited to see what the day will bring.

Well this particular morning was way worse than normal.  I didn’t really sleep much the night before thanks in large part to sleeping on our couch in an attempt to get some peaceful rest since Matt was snoring almost as loud as a Mac truck.  I’m  surprised the dog slept through it and didn’t start barking.  So needless to say I was a bear when I woke up and I wasn’t surprised when Matt ran out the door to get to work.

It’s crazy the things that catch your attention.  I was headed into the shower when I saw this strange orangey-pink light.  I looked out the window to see a gorgeous sunrise.  And it put a smile on my face.

Beautiful sunrise in my neighborhood.

Since I’m awful at time management in the morning I was, of course,  rushing out the door to get to work.  But before I made it out the door Punky, my spunky Cairn Terrier, gave me a huge puppy kiss and a little snuggle.  She loves to cuddle, especially in the morning when she knows I’m about to leave for the day.

                                                                                    Doesn’t she have the best smile?

Work was nice and busy and I ended up being there well past closing time ,which is always a good thing.  I love to be busy and I love when my clients want to switch things up and make some changes.  I was super pumped because we got the new collection of polishes from OPI, the Muppet collection.  It’s so much fun!  Tons and tons of glitter and sparkle and ridiculous names.  My fav is definitely the Rainbow Connection and you know I had to test it out right away.

Look at that glittery fabulousness!

                                     Anything that sparkles and has multiple size glitter in it gets an A++ in my book.

The most wonderful thing to happen on this horrible starting day was the very first snowfall of the season.  Yeah it’s pretty crazy to snow in October but it’s just so pretty to look out the window and see those big, fluffy, sparkly flakes.

DO you think the flower is crying because it’s so beautiful?

Since I got out of work so late I just did not have the energy to work-out and that made my feet super happy.  So I came home to dinner waiting on the coffee table.  And the best part of my day was snuggling on the couch with my fluffy kitty, Pearl, and watching Beavis and Butthead with Matt.

Can you hear her purring?
