I hope the title of this post doesn't make all of you (Yes, I know you are out there) think that I am going soft on you. I will explain the reasoning. Last night my husband I went on one of our very rare date nights. These are very hard to come by so whenever he takes me out, I can't help but have a good night/day. Also, I have mentioned that he is swept up in the world of artists so we get to go to events that a lot of people don’t know about (for free I might add). Last night we went to the Preview night for the musical Sound of Music at the local theater in town. Unlike my worldly husband, I have never seen the video (I hear it's a classic) or seen the play, so it was a new experience for me. There is no doubt that the people on stage are very talented and the  2 1/2 hour show was worth it. Also, there were songs in the musical (obviously) that I really took a liking to. My favorite song was "Raindrops on Roses" (See, I told you I would get to the point). This song made me feel happy and carefree and it was just plain fun! I have copied the lyrics below. Now, you might not have a professional actress singing you the lyrics, but I believe they do the same thing when you read the lyrics. Try not to like this song, I dare you. :) Readers Enjoy!
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

If you didn’t like that song, then you probably don’t like teddy bears, Christmas Cards (Tis the Season), hugs, kittens, puppies or the Charlie Brown Specials either (yes, I am calling you cold-hearted). So if that song didn’t make your morning, I do have a backup plan. Think of some of your favorite things. Days can’t get any better when your favorite things are on your mind. If that still didn’t work for all of you cold-hearted, unicorn hating people who think I am too peppy for my own good, I leave you with this: Hump Day. Get your mind out of the gutter! I am talking about the famous Wednesday. The day where the end to the work week is in sight. The day that you can get away with telling your co-workers ‘Yay, its Hump Day’ out loud and not look like a creep. A day that makes Friday that much closer.
Until Thursday my Friends…

    Best song EVER! My favorite line is "Brown paper packages tied up with string" and so that's how I usually wrap all my gifts :) This year though, I used maps which was equally as exciting!
