For the month of December, I’ll be participating in #WEverb11. Each day gives a new prompt, each of which is a chance to reflect and look forward.

December 19: Laugh
Tell us about your biggest belly laugh in 2011. Contributed by Julie Jordan Scott.


My most recent can’t-catch-your-breath-crying-because-you’re-laughing-so-hard laugh was with my sister while we were baking Christmas cookies. I can’t remember exactly what we were talking about, but we were getting really punchy (maybe from smelling the delicious goodies?) and I said something about the snicker doodles being Snooki doodles and we played off of that Jersey Shore vibe for a while.  You definitely had to be there. It was hilarious and ridiculous, as all the best laughing fests are.

When I think about the times that I just laugh out loud, I am always with my sister.  No one can make me laugh like she can, and I think vice versa.  We know exactly which memories to recall, exactly which phrases to say, to dissolve the other into peals of laughter.  It’s great.  Plus, laughing is a great ab workout!

So when I’m feeling like I need a bit of cheering up or a good laugh, I just head next door to my sister’s and I’m sure to start laughing soon enough.  I love that.

When’s the last time you had a good laugh?

Even though Sofi has her own blog, where I write all about our experiences together, I thought that since today she’s moving into a whole new stage of her life, I’d highlight a few things on this blog.  Just in case you needed a cute puppy fix for today.  🙂

Today Sofi is 4 months old, which is exciting for so many reasons. Now she can go on walks, visit the dog park, get groomed, and do pretty much anything we decide we’d like to.  It’s opened up a whole new world for her, which is great for me, too.  Now we an really have fun and we’re not limited to only staying around the house or the backyard.  I can bring her out and about, and I think she’s going to enjoy being a social puppy.

Yesterday Sofi also took her first car ride, which she loved.  Then when we got home and I thought she was just going to chill out for a while, she decided it was frolickin’ Friday.  If you do nothing else, please watch that video – I guarantee it will make you giggle.

I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend – I have some fun plans of my own that I’ll catch you up on in a post tomorrow.  Let’s just say that I plan to make the most of each day of the weekend!!!  I hope you do, too.
