10 Things That Really Make Me Happy

I'm a pretty pessimistic person. I'm a happy person, but just a glass half empty rather than full kind of girl. I can't help it. So, every few weeks I try and take stock of the little things that have made me smile lately. Even for a few moments, my glass ends up pretty darn full. Thinking I should do it more often. Here's today's list ...

1. A perfectly poached egg. Such a simple thing, but done right? Perfection.

2. Cancelled sports practice. It's the grown-up version of a snow day.

3. A newly toothless grin. Few things are as cute as a huge smile with a missing front tooth.

4. A good haircut. Amazing what a difference it can make.

5. An '80s movie marathon on TV. Best day ever!

6. Nutella from the jar.

7. Shoes that are cute and comfortable. I may just have bought Fit-Flops in four colors.

8. A long, hot shower. Without an audience.

9. A pitcher of sangria and someone I want to share it with.

10. A nap. Nothing beats a nap.

 What makes YOU happy?

New haircut for sure!

Drinks with friends, without getting drunk.

When my baked goods come out perfectly, and I can set them on the table, like a boss.

Watching my 5yr old daughter who used to be petrified of dogs, play with her new puppy, and pet our other 2. Her new puppy gave her faith in the k9 species :)

My son going peepee on the potty last night, without being told to!

My SOs father. He's the best man I know. I love him from the bottom of my heart, and the depths of my soul.

Crafting with my kids and watching them finish new projects that they didn't think they could.

A nice warm couch

I love fall and the crisp cool air And the warm sun to balance it out

A nice fleece and my nook book

Ahh... A solitary shower and a nap, 2 of the best things ever! And my son just lost his first tooth, so the toothless grin is back in our house!

8pm snuggle time with my son as he goes to sleep. Even happier? The FREE TIME I have as I leave his room.

Isn't it funny how the smallest things in life are what make us happy! I will never again take going to the bathroom by myself for granted..its the 3 minutes I need to regain my sanity.
