Favorite things...A happy Friday list!

A good way to celebrate Friday's happy arrival is to celebrate a few of life's simple pleasures: 1. Β When hubbies make dinner!

Last night I came home from yoga (see #2 on list) to a hubby slaving over the grill making cheesburgers (with carmelized onions!!) and a delightful pasta salad with wheat pasta, cucumbers, apples, mango salsa and yellow peppers!

Life is good when these treats happen.

2. Β Yoga classes

Just went to my first prenatal yoga class in Baltimore last night - check out Charm City Yoga (

The class was fantastic and a great way to make it through the Thursday night slump.

3. Β Cup of Jo Blog

This blog cheers me up every day and is less wacky and pretentious than many design blogs that are out there - the author seems very down to earth and reasonable, but fun!

Check out Joanna Goddard's blog at, she gives great advice and has fun little ideas!
