If you haven’t heard about this bit of awesomeness called Intentional Happiness, I suggest you go to BadMommyMoments and Momalom to see what all the fuss is about!

Some things that put the !!! in my week:

Spending time with these two delicious people:

And despite her warnings otherwise, I was not sorry that I inhaled.

The clearest view of this bridge I’ve ever been treated to while visiting–plus, it hit 80 degrees on a day in June–inconceivable!

A long talk and walk through the ferry building, sampling amazing cheese and bread and chocolate, and finding the perfect accessories for my Snarkalicious self.

Arriving home to this on our bed, proof positive that we were missed.

Discovering that Miss D. has scheduled her summer time with the precision of Julie from the Love Boat.

And that she’s assigning herself homework, too. Oh wait. She’s assigning the 4-year old homework. Maybe not so cute.

What made you !!! this week?

Oh glorious glorious San Fran! You walked through one of my favorite buildings on earth! Miss D's summer plans are hilarious. She looks like she is having a lot of fun already! This week my !!! was having my parents pull into my driveway after years of scheming to get them to live here.

I'm happy to report that Miss D is a young woman after my own heart. I would so make this list!!

Yay for !!! and for snuggling with babies that aren't yours.

And the baby… oh my… I want to kiss those cheeks!

CK + Miss D = LUV (and lots and lots of to-dos.)

And that ButterBaby? 100% !!!


Good Enough Woman June 17, 2010 at 10:12 am

That's quite a sophisticated research plan that Miss D. has laid out!

Oh, and when you included the word "inconceivable"–I had the voice of that guy from The Princess Bride in my head.

My !!! is packing for Hawaii!


Jen June 17, 2010 at 10:13 am

This is too much, Kitchie. Lurv it.


Cathy June 17, 2010 at 10:39 am

Hey you were in my neck of the woods! You picked a great few days to visit too.

I think the best thing in the world is to have a kissable baby in your arms and to be able to give it back. All the pluses with none of the work!


Gale at Ten Dollar Thoughts June 17, 2010 at 10:47 am

Oooh, assigning your little sister homework? Genius! Why didn't I think of that as a kid??


Barbara June 17, 2010 at 11:07 am

You must have had such fun with your friend! Good for you….you should do it more often. A break is often a sanity-saver!

Love Miss D's lists…in color, yet, even the one for her little sister. Good luck with that.


Kristen @ Motherese June 17, 2010 at 1:36 pm

Cheese in the Ferry Building? Say no more. Just conjuring the memory of it is enough of a !!! moment for me.

I am also swooning over Miss D's list. My favorite? "Snak the pack." Don't know what it means, but it sounds like all kinds of awesome.



Cheryl June 17, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Oooh…I'd inhale too!


Lindy June 17, 2010 at 4:06 pm

I LOVE that she has a hypothesis. You've got a future engineer on your hands! :)


K(Banterings of a Basketcase) June 17, 2010 at 5:20 pm

mmm- things are always better with bread, cheese, and chocolate.


Maria June 17, 2010 at 5:35 pm

Butter is adorable and I know you gals must have had an incredible time in one of my favorite cities!

And yes, I would inhale all that I could from that sweet little pumpkin!

I am loving this !!!


Fresh Local and Best June 17, 2010 at 6:43 pm

Ahhh! You were in San Francisco. The new baby is so adorable, she looks like a baby doll. I hope you enjoyed the Ferry Building, it's my favorite place in San Francisco.


alita June 18, 2010 at 5:09 am

!!! I try to inhale my sweet little babies all the time.

I love your !!!


elizabeth June 18, 2010 at 6:14 am

My !!! is enjoying the World Cup–we're having a party on Sunday to watch Italy v New Zealand and then Brazil v Cote d'Ivoire–and tucking into a big bowl of pasta e fagioli last night for dinner.

Miss D. is a girl after my own heart. I loved to play school every summer.


evaevolving June 18, 2010 at 11:44 am

Oh my gosh!!! Each of these photos is better than the last. I LOVE the shirts you bought. And I LOVE the homework on the white board. So precocious and organized and funny all at once.


Tiffany June 18, 2010 at 4:34 pm

That bitter shirt is awesome…and Miss D? I think she and I would be great friends.


Erin June 22, 2010 at 6:40 am

What wonderful moments of happiness! Miss D’s schedule is the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while. And the focus question/prediction stuff… priceless!

My husband and I have both been frustrated with trying to keep up with life lately, in terms of jobs and finances, and I find myself embracing all these little happy moments in an effort to appreciate all we do have. I should try to capture some of it on my camera, which I predict would make me extra happy :)
