I'm pretty tired today. I just spent a crazy busy weekend up at my college, Mississippi University for Women, helping out with the recruitment of new members. I love the actual parties and getting to know the new girls. I do believe I could do it for a living,.

But because of the fun of the weekend, and the large amounts of caffeine I guzzled so I'd stay away on the drive home late last night, I was up til an insane hour this morning and still feeling like I've got rush hangover. My heart is full but I don't have the energy or the brain power needed for a deep posting.

In light of that, I thought I'd just share some things with you that have been making me smile lately.

For one, look at these girls---

Aren't they precious? They are some of my sweet and strong Troubadour sisters.

And speaking of sweet, look at these wonders ----

Now I'll be up front and say that I am not a sugar addict. Give me a choice between cookies or casseroles and the casseroles are gonna win out all the way. And popcorn? I like mine salty or spicy. Much better than the sticky, sweet version. But when I stumbled across Rosie's baking blog several days ago, I found my mouth watering just from looking at her amazing creations.

You can go and drool, too, at

But one of the things that made me smile the most today was my little Miss M's Swaziland picture she drew today of Grandmommy, a pet giraffe named Peanut Butter, and herself wearing classic safari gear.

I have a tickle in my brain.
And it keeps making the corners of my mouth point toward the heavens.
