Things That Make Me Smile...

Song: Beautiful Day
Artist: U2

Finally! I have some time to blog! (Courtesy of Tropical Storm Fay) I thought that I would write about some things that make me smile, since the weather is so crappy looking. To start this special blog out, I would like to go over this "tropical storm". Supposedly, this storm is going to go right through Florida, make a sharp left turn for Georgia and Louisiana, and go back into the Gulf of Mexico (where it can then intensify and hit us again!) due to some trough coming from the right of Florida. This makes me smile. There's nothing like having people freak out about a tiny storm... watching it go... then watching it come back around and start everything all over again. Hopefully, however, it wont do what it's expected (as they usually don't).  On top of this, I went to get some gas this morning (since I've been on empty for I don't know how long) and the gas pumps in my neighborhood were all saran wrapped shut and closed for business. This limits me to doing NOTHING. Glory.

Now, back to things that REALLY make me smile. I'f you haven't realized by now... everything pink, black, and white makes me smile. I'm not really into pink clothes... but I love love pink accessories. Black and white, however, are my favorite colors for clothes. Yeah, I'm a little boring, but whatever. Deal with it. I think the pink makes up for it. (BTW, you can make a little collage like this at this website).  It's pretty great. I don't really have an artist's eye (more like an artist's ear), but this website was quite entertaining! Especially if you're as bored as I am right now. =)  

Well, this topic I'm sure we all have in common. The third thing that makes me smile... Awesome food!!!! Every thing fried, sweet, or just plain delicious... you know what I'm talking about.  Amanda and I take out a day or two every week and eat something as delicious as the things on the left. I mean, despite the urge to diet and get thin (fun.)... I need a break every once in a while to eat something so delicious, so fantastic, that it could give you a heart attack (i.e. covered in butter, salt, or sugar). Something that is not pictured... BISTEC EMPANIZADO CON PAPITAS... ohhh my gosh... don't even get me started on that... YUM!!!! I'm totally dreaming of these foods even if they're totally out of reach. Amanda, if you're reading this, it's time to go back to Samurai! Tell your mom ;)
Thanks to Kristel, I have a new thing to smile at. Creating my own manga avatar! FUN! Here is what I came up with. Not half bad!

The last (but not least) thing that makes me smile HAS to be people. As lame as it sounds, I can not get enough of them. My family, my fiance, my friends... LOVE THEM! Anything from a simple phone call to a lame joke... love it! And that concludes the things that make me smile.
