Aint No Mountain High Enough!


May 17, 2011

I was listening to the oldies Pandora station this morning and this song came on… one of my absolute favorites by far!! In a time where we’re constantly surrounded with both highs and lows, you have to keep moving on and be thankful for all the good. I am having one of those days where your mind is constantly swarming…thinking through everything that needs to be done–at work, at home, on the wedding front–yet, I can’t seem to get focused enough to get my head above water…someone needs to help me here because I need some BALANCE!!

The high mountains that are making me happy:

Surprise Rewards: I received a pretty sizeable gift card from my boss yesterday for all the hard work {and overtime} I had recently put in for a huge proposal effort–it was her way to say thank you to a job well done and she said she wanted to make sure I realized that I had exceeded her expectations! Hallejuah Happiness 😉

Delivery Packages: lately I’ve been delivered some very fun items from the UPS man at work…I’m sure he is ready for my wedding to be over with so the packages will stop stacking up in my office, though it makes the day way more enjoyable opening goodies and seeing fun wedding ideas finally come to life!

Using New Cookbooks: We are having our annual beginning of summer lunch cookout at work on Friday and I couldn’t be happier to whip out one of my new dessert cookbooks for a new recipe…I’m making Lemon Blueberry Filled Cupcakes–to me, that just screams summertime tasty!

Dinner with Friends: Thursday night, Jenna and I finally get to rekindle and I get to see her growing bely bump again!! We’re having dinner at a new place in Green Hills I’ve been dying to try out so I promise to report back. Then, on Sunday evening, we’re having Jocelyn and her hubbie Nick over for a low key dinner…cannot wait to catch up with these two–love them!

Kind Comments: Thanks for all the kind and sweet comments you all sent yesterday regarding the photo montage recap of the weekend’s festivities…I know that the green dress was by far everyone’e favorite–haha! Sad to say, this was bought at a boutique here in Nashville called Blush, which is my favorite shop for practically everything I buy–however, sometimes their items are also featured on ModCloth, Shop Ruche, and Lulus’s so try those lovely online sites for some fabulous and colorful dresses!!

So what all are the happy highs you’ve got in your worlds? Always love to hear of all the good things that God is blessing my blogging friends with 😉

    I swore the UPS man was not going to deliver anymore to my house before our wedding. Now, I never see him. 🙁 And I can't wait to hear about these cupcakes. Yummmmm!!!!!

  2. Kate says:

    How nice of your boss to reward you with a generous gift card — most bosses just assume that overtime comes with the territory. You must work at a great company!

  3. I have been having kind of a "boo" day and this post totally brought me back to life! Thanks for the positive words since today I'm feeling less than positive! 🙂

    Oh my goodness, how nice of your boss! It is def hard to put in overtime when u don't feel rewarded. On another note…Do you watch the voice? Blake sheltons team sang ain't no mountain high enough last night…sucha feel good song!
