Thanks to Hallie for hosting!
#1 - The EpiPen. Because JF would maybe be dead without it. Really. Here's the story:
I swung the EpiPen into his thigh and took him to the ER.
#2 - Living in a small Catholic world.
Last week I saw my irl friend Elizabeth tag Ashley Collins on Facebook. Since I follow Ashley on Twitter and think he's super awesome I became super excited, in a "oh-my-gosh!-you-know-Ashley-Collins!?!" kind of way. Which of course he saw. Only slightly embarrassing.

I sent her a creepy email asking if Dave was smart and funny and an Eagle Scout and I looked a pictures of them on Facebook. I've never met Jenny (unfortunately) and Dave doesn't remember me but I'm still counting it!
#3 - Spiced chai at Leaves and Beans.
#4 - The first batch of fresh asparagus from our garden. Holy schmoly - fresh, tender, yummy asparagus picked by my husband and daughter - the best. Everyone loved them and the 12 spears were not enough.
#5 - That Resa and I have the same gait.

I loved this part of the Huffington Post article:
