Happiness is the first weekend of the year.

My weekend included some of my favorite things. I saw butterflies. We had lattes. We also had brownies with hot tea. And we got to watch some spectacular football.

The local Museum of Life and Science has a butterfly house. Jordan and I went yesterday to spend time in a small but lovely tropical rainforest, complete with tiny birds and many lovely butterflies. Jordan took pics while I staked out a spot to observe and just get my zen on.

This morning our daughter came to visit and surprised us with lattes! How sweet is that? We always have a good time when D. comes over. We always end up laughing entirely too much.

After lattes and then breakfast, D. came with me to Target. I needed to pick up a new planner. And I've been craving fresh pineapple all week. So I got one of those too.

We took the pineapple to my Dad's & Mamacita's house to share the juicy goodness with them. --Oh, and have Dad cut the pineapple. I'm not sure one of my knives could have handled that bad boy. BONUS: Dad is going to use the pineapple top to grow a tree (?). Will it be a tree? I'd love it if he were able to grow a pineapple tree.

Oh, and before I forget, Jordan bought be a bag of cuties. Yum! I will be taking these to lunch tomorrow.

When we were at Dad's & Mamacita's, Mamacita gave us homemade brownies to take home. So, as we watched the first football game of the day, Jordan and I had tea and brownies.

You know how I like NFL football and this weekend I was able to watch three full games (!!). Not the least of which was my beloved Seahawks winning to go to the next game in the Playoffs! Happiness.

I'm hoping your weekend was happy too.
