I was looking around for blogging inspiration and decided to take a timehop and see what I was writing about exactly one year ago. I think sometimes it's easy to forget what we all as bloggers put into words day after day, year after year, so it was nice to look back. Fortunately, it was a cool post. I wrote a list of things currently making me happy and you know what? The 365-day-old post still made me happy today. So I thought I'd do a "happies" 2.0 today.
Coming home from a long day to find the smallest of surprises from my husband. He was able to get a weird light fixture in our lower level to finally work and it's probably sad how excited that made me!
New kitchen gadgets. Hello, Pampered Chef party. I didn't go overboard like I'd love to, but just a couple new things for my kitchen are enough to lift my spirits and inspire my cooking.
Getting an email from an old college friend I haven't caught up with in awhile.
Going through old pictures and laughing at what babies we used to look like. Hello, 2009!
The smell of lilac when I walk out the door in the morning.
Remembering I still have a couple giftcards from my birthday to use. Holla!
Our city's annual "trash" day. This weekend we can put anything we want at the curb and they'll pick it up. Goodbye old, broken tube TV and bathroom sink!

Disney movies and how they have the ability to just make you feel warm and fuzzy inside no matter your age, no matter your mood, no matter what.
When Jared and I's paychecks end up being deposited on the same days. It only happens maybe 1/3 of the time, so it's fun to feel "rich" for about a day before we pay bills.
A hilarious snapchat from a friend.
The free songs on iTunes that come out weekly. Sometimes they're awesome, sometimes not so much. But you know how I feel about free things. #tightwad
Blogging. Bloggers. Blates. Giant blates, like the one I'll be going to tomorrow. All Ohio bloggers are welcome- if you need details, just ask! I'm excited to meet so many great ladies this weekend.
Freshly washed sheets. Ahhh, there is no better feeling.
