Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate blog hop

This is Friday and that means it is time to Celebrate the Small Things, as part of a weekly blog hop led by Lexa Cain.

This week, I have to be honest – I am exhausted. Between the 4th of July and my birthday and a couple other things I’m just simply wrung out – not in a bad way exactly, but right now all I want to do is crawl back in bed and go to sleep again, and I am actually, literally sort of mad that I can’t do that!

That said, I had my birthday this week, in which I turned 25. (Kidding! It’s a bit higher than that but I won’t say how high!!) Family in town for that and for the 4th of July. I also – because I’m nuts started CampNaNoWriMo with a 70000 word count goal and am thus far on track with that, a little bit ahead because I get twitchy if I’m just barely holding on.

My breakfast just went ding – making toast, yay! so I’m going to finish this up and have my toast and cereal. I love toast. With fresh creamery butter. Seriously, it’s my favorite breakfast food. I’ve actually totally unnerved restaurants by ordering toast and tea with milk and they’ll be like – um – okay, seriously? Yes, seriously. I consider it a treat though because I know a more balanced diet is important, and okay that was only ever in the UK where their breakfast foods admittedly scare me. Like marmalade which is gross. I know, woman cannot live on toast alone, et cetera. But if I could, I’d be so happy.

How was your week? Anything wonderful you’re celebrating?

P.S. In case you’ve never seen it, this is marmalade. Tell me it doesn’t look a little creepy….
