  5. Amanda- my brother's girlfriend made the cupcakes. They are chocolate, with guiness, baileys, and whisky being three other ingredients. With a ganache filling. They.were.fabulous.

  6. landing a fantastic performance evaluation and having your boss tell you she likes your work;

    cooler summer days where I can actually think straight;

    freshly clipped dog nails walking SILENTLY across the wood floors;

    my birthday - no matter how old I get;

    The resulting homemade birthday cake - dark chocolate with white sticky frosting.

    Is this too self-centered?
