I'm Happy!

I wrote a post back in August about the little things that were making me happy at the moment. Things we take for granted, things that we'd miss if they weren't here anymore. I'm feeling particularly happy and blessed today and thought I'd go for round 2 of the "happies" post :)

I'm happy about:
The amazing weekend I just spent with my sister and brother-in-law.

Sore muscles after an INTENSE workout.

Meal planning made easy by this guy I found in the clearance section of Barnes & Noble.

Friendships that grow and surprise you all the time.

Getting to use my creativity in blog designing.

Photobooks from Shutterfly (duh- that orange package gets me every time!)

The countdown app on my phone constantly reminding me of all the fun to come!

Extra-strength cold medicine for helping me get through this day!!

And you know what else?! I asked some of my fave gals to join in on the "happies" with me today. Just reading their short lists of reasons to be happy made ME smile, and I hope they do the same for you.

Janna is happy about:
The candle I got from February's Cara Box (I finally got it after moving). It smells divine!

The smell of freshly baked cookies.

The sound of my children's laughter. Even when they are getting on each other's nerves, they are always laughing.

Re-reading all of the Harry Potter books :) 

Hearing my husband work on computers. I know that at least for now, I still have him. 

Kayla is happy about:
Good hair days

Squeezing into an old pair of jeans!!

Picking up right where things left off with old friends over dinner

Finding a dollar bill in your back pocket.

Hand written letters from friends in the mail

Sarah is happy about
Getting addicted to a new television show: Revenge… 36 episodes in a row! 

God blessing women with the ultimate gift, no not Ryan Gossling…. LEGGINGS! 

Well, ok… Ryan Gossling.

Not being the only person that get's called out for getting mystic tan all over everything white.
This conversation with my mother regarding my dog. 

Robin is happy about

Pouring a glass of wine and putting your feet up after a long day.

Trying something new and realizing you're good at it.

Looking through old pictures and remembering some favorite moments.

Getting a funny snapchat right when you need it most.

Rolling my windows down and blasting "Cruise"

Helene is happy about:

My dog Hugo. Dogs just aren't man's best friend. They can be a girl's best friend too. 

Green smoothies- tasty and good for you? Yes please. 

Everclear cherries. Soak some cherries in everclear. What else do I need to tell ya? It's an instant party.

Dancing. Anytime, anywhere. Instant happiness!

Alexa is happy about:

This weekend, Glenn Coco {my husband} and I are heading to Charleston, SC for the annual Wine + Food Festival! If our Napa honeymoon was any indication, we kinda sorta like vino.

The little teasing tastes of Spring we're getting here in the South. They're sporadic at best, but I'll take it!

Ellen DeGeneres, and how generous she is to the most deserving people :)

The way my pup snuggles with me first thing in the morning, despite it being the ungodly hour of 5:30 a.m.

A Pinterest board full of healthy new recipes to try!
