Ladies and Gents we have a VitaTop Giveaway Winner…lucky comment #5: Lara with a Twitter update.  Thanks to all of you who commented.  I love doing giveaways!  I’m going to try to do them more regularly, so keep reading.

Lara, expect an email from me asking you for magical things like your address.

Yesterday, I decided to get back to my own personal Happiness Project roots, and keep a running total of things that made me happy.  These are the things that made my Thursday more bearable:

  • Seeing the Statue of Liberty from the F Train platform I commute in from in the morning.  Every time I see Lady Liberty (which is five days a week), I think this is so cool!
  • Sexy red shoes.
  • Payday
  • Lunch with my aunt.
  • Cinnamon mini-cupcakes that are the new love of my life
  • Speaking of loves of my life, this quote:

You make me understand how wonderful it is for little lizards when they find that one special rock that’s perfect for sunning themselves on. You make me lizard-happy. -Randy K. Milholland

I’m not dating anyone now, and honestly I’m actively trying to savor every moment of singledom but this corny quote reminded me exactly what I want next time I meet someone—I can only hope that one day I’ll find someone that makes me “Lizard Happy.”  Just the thought of it kind of makes me smirk, I’m a smirker.

Yes, I am the corniest person alive, but I like it.  I like me.  And I really like red shoes and mini-cinnamon cupcakes.

I have never gotten so many cat-calls in one day.   I’ve worn the white blouse, black pencil skirt before without this reaction…it had to have been the shoes.


Banana Rain forest Crunch Cereal with banana and almond milk


This is bread.


Honestly, I was a little disappointed in the Gordon Ramsey dining experience.  The food was good, but it wasn’t really anything special.


Chocolate pudding with a homemade pretzel wedge, peanut flour and vanilla ice cream


Dinner consisted of nibbles of mini cupcakes and cured meats and cheeses

I did not eat all of these, but I considered it.

Congrats to Randy and Alison on your engagement, thank you for getting pinned and introducing me to the wonders of mini-cupcakes.
