For Your Pleasure…

Since it’s Saturday, I have to highlight a few good things. For me? The best good thing is that yesterday afternoon, I got to have a conversation with my grandma. Last Wednesday, I went to the hospital and was basically told that she would need a miracle—and she’s gotten it. To be able to hold her hand and tell her I love her and have her say the same…well, there’s no words for how grateful I am. She has a long road to recovery, but she’s going to be moved out of ICU and hopefully keep getting better.

My dad had some exploratory surgery this week and it turns out that they will be doing chemo and radiation instead of what would have been a horrendously invasive surgery. He has meetings this week that will determine when this will begin. If you could keep my family in your continued prayers and good thoughts, that would be amazing—things are clearly getting better, but chemo and radiation are tough. We are staying positive and hoping for the best.

Okay, on to other good things for the week:

—My newest blog crush is Hannah Just Breathe. Seriously, she’s amazing. Check it out.

—If you like Zen Habits than you’ll probably love Mnmlist. Some of his posts scare me—like only owning 100 Things (clothing included! AHHH!) but it’s inspirational nonetheless. Definitely worth a read for those of you who like making your life easier.

—I am IN LOVE with Little Brown Pen. I’ve been obsessed with Paris lately, and I’m loving her new Flickr group “Your Paris.”

—My friend Gina has long recommended a local consignment store called Boho Boutique, and this week, I finally went. I fell in love—the owner is so passionate about what she does, and has her store set up so sweetly! I loved it and will definitely be back. If you’re in the Sacramento area, it’s worth checking out!

The Demoiselles have started a new project called Getting Healthy. The stories of women of all shapes and sizes getting healthy in their own ways is so inspirational and fabulous. I love it.

Joanna is always, always, always lovely, but while she’s been on her honeymoon, bloggers and writers have been sharing their secrets to a happy marriage. Whether you’re married or not, the advice is amazing for any relationship—some really good things there.

So, what are YOU up to this weekend? I have a big, fun to-do list, including cleaning out my closet (again—all part of the Style Statement journey!), getting my hands on some paints/charcoals/art stuff, making some chili to eat and to freeze for lunches, swimming some laps and going back to Zumba!

Hope your Saturday is lovely!
