Happy List! – April 16, 2011

Things that make me happy… RIGHT NOW!

Pleasantly surprised by a remake

When I first heard that they were remaking the classic 80’s film Arthur, I was VERY nervous. (Hello… Dudley Moore and Liza Minelli?! Perfection!) Mr. S, in what is slowly becoming a tradition, took me out for pre-movie margaritas, and in to Arthur we went. I was shocked. I LOVED it. This may be sacrilegious, but… I can’t believe I am going to say it… I think I liked it BETTER than the original! In the beginning, I was a little put off by the decidedly less gritty nature, but it quickly won me over in so many other ways. Oh how it made me miss New York though! (P.S. NOT impressed by the “Arthur’s Theme” remake. That belongs to Christopher Cross. Period. Good thing it only got tacked onto the credits…)

I’ve always loved the message that love CAN overcome money, or the lack thereof… a message that has never seemed to be true in my own life but one that I hope will push through someday. Sure, it can absolutely make life easier, no doubt about that, but NOTHING can overcome love. True love.


As in hair. Just got a killer touchup. Very happy. 🙂

Ben & Jerry’s Late Night Snack

A new flavor inspired by Jimmy Fallon, Late Night Snack contains… wait for it… fudge covered potato chips. If you like sweet/salty together, this is a WIN.

Try a new, weird ice cream flavor, and keep thinking of the things that make YOU smile! 🙂
