a Friday happy list:

+ yesterday I posted about Ivan & Alyosha, and afterwards found this awesome little NPR Desk Concert. It's just the band, guitar, hand clapping, and some whistling. I think it's the happiest little video I've ever seen. This band just started a new tour, and if they are coming to your town then you are L-U-C-K-Y! When they make their way back up to Seattle, I'll be heading over the mountains and through the woods to catch them live. P.S. They sing three songs in this video. I love them all, but the last one is my very favorite.

+ right now, I am posting from the guest business center of my Toyota dealership while my car gets it's oil changed. The service here is so good. They offer complimentary drinks, cookies, and internet service [rad.] But, the thing that makes me the happiest is that they will wash and vacuum my van. It's the little things, folks.

+ I just splurged with my piano teaching money and bought a really quality pair of headphones. The noise canceling, quality audio kind. I'm so stoked to try them out on Adele's new album, which comes out on Tuesday.

+ speaking of Tuesday... Brandon and I will be headed over to Seattle for a little belated Valentine's getaway to catch Josh Ritter in concert. I can't wait.

+ speaking of concerts... I've also got tickets to see Fleet Foxes in Seattle in May, and Adele in Portland in June. My concert calendar is filling up nicely, I must say.

+ speaking of concert calendars... did you see my little countdown button up there on the right? It says there are only 15 days left until The Lower Lights are here. Please grab your tickets!

What's making you happy today?
