happy things: a brunch so hard kit

I don't care much about lunch or dinner but brunch makes me happy, euphoric. The angels sing. It doesn't matter to me if it's room service on a balcony or a little dive diner, brunch food is happy food. Whenever I get the chance L and I will head out on a brunch date and it makes me fall in love with him all over again over shared bites of a cinnamon roll and maple glazed bacon. Friends know that if it involves brunch, I'm in.

So, when I was at Nordstrom, I found this Brunch So Hard kit and I knew that other than a favorite companion, this would be the one other thing I'd need to make brunch perfect. Included in this kit is: antacid, pain reliever, dental floss, breath drops, sweet vs. savory decision coin, hand cleaning towelettes, a stain remover and best of all, a pants extender(!). And once you've used up the products, you get a reusable coin purse that will remind you of just how hard you brunch when you reach for a token.

Here's to the perfect combination of your favorite people and brunch!

happy video: baby pandas on a slide

Whenever I start to lose faith in this world, I watch this video. I like knowing that there are people whose job it is to show baby pandas how to go down a slide. That these little, pudgy Panda cubs follow her down the slide does actually at times bring me to happy tears.

I hope you're having a great (and happy!) Wednesday!
