i'm a goofball. a happy one. (and Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap announced!!)

i'm so happy. 
and i'm a big goofball.

ryan tells me that all the time. and i know it's true. but that boy can be the same exact same way - so i guess, we make a good team. it helps that he doesn't mind taking most of my goofy, random pictures for the blog. (he's a keeper, isn't he?) 

so why am i happy?  
(i already told you why i'm a goofball. i just am.)

i told you yesterday that it was time to CELEBRATE NOVEMBER, by focusing on the good things that make up autumn and life...instead of the gloom and the negative. that is why i'm happy. i'm happy because of life. because of God and what He is doing in my life. because of Him i find joy in life and can celebrate the big and the little. and there are so many big and little things to celebrate.

and you know that some of the things i love include family and cupcakes. (not always together of course, but you know what i mean.) i got the chance to enjoy time with ryan and his mom (love her!). margaret took us to whimsical sweets, which if you know me, of course i was ecstatic. anytime i find cupcakes here in the south i'm beyond giddy. they had so many flavors, changed up every day (which would draw you in to go back more than once, right?). i love the variety. i plan to go back again soon and grab me some peanut butter flavored ones i saw on the menu.

if you see the pics below, i'm sure you can see why i was so giddy. and yes, of course, i picked the red velvet cupcake, silly. we took them home to eat for dessert that night - and it was so delish! all of it was so good - down to the little sugar heart on top. 

and you know what else i'm giddy about?

so what is it? you asked. well, i'm glad you asked! Cold Hands & Warm Hearts is a swap created to keep your hands warm as winter approaches and the weather gets colder.  it’s also a way for bloggers to make new friends across the blog-world.
