If you need more fun in your life, I highly recommend getting a Mini!

In December I promised to start sharing things I’m thinking about, and then in January I got distracted by Daily Phase One Recipes and now it’s been two months since I’ve shared one of these posts.   Happily it was a good two months with lots of holiday celebrating at Chez Kalyn, and the best present ever arrived on December 31 when I got my new Mini Cooper!  I’ve never cared much about cars, and for years I loved my Toyotas, but when I moved I needed a car that could get up the hill in the snow.  I picked the AWD Mini Cooper Countryman that’s slightly bigger than the regular Mini (and thankfully not quite so low to the ground), and this is hands-down the most fun car I’ve ever owned!  And I’ve had the personal license plate for a while, but I think it looks even better on this car.  (If you live in Utah and are considering a Mini I had great service from Tyson Call at Mini of Murray.  And I’m sure some of you are wondering, so just for the record, Tyson and Mini of Murray have no idea that I’m giving them a little shout-out here.)

Here are a few more things I’ve been thinking about lately.

Sometimes you see an ad that really says more about life than it does about the product, and I think this Coke ad really captures the joy of being a parent.  (Warning, whether you’re a parent or not, this will probably make you cry!

Whether or not you know any families with dads in the military, Dad in a Box is another one that will probably make you cry!

You young folks who are reading me, trust me that they’re right about most of the 37 Things You’ll Regret When You’re Old!  (I almost said “young whippersnappers” but I decided that would really make me sound old!)

Avoiding sugar seems almost impossible in our sugar-saturated culture, but The Healthy Apple has good tips on How to Follow a Sugar-Free Lifestyle.

I talk a lot about my enormous family, and now my talented nephew Travis has documented them in a video about the Denny Family Superbowl Party, a yearly event always hosted by my brother Mark and his wife Lisa.  And it may be hard to believe, but actually less than half the family members were there!

I’m having fun experimenting with my new Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cooker, and my friend Barbara’s site Pressure Cooking Today has been a great help.  Check it out if you have one of these handy gadgets!

Finally, if you need a good laugh, check out these Honest Company Slogans!  Several of these made me laugh out loud!
