Hey all you cool cats and kittens! Happy Thursday! I have a fun day planned today, starting at the orthodontist for my daughter’s braces appt then meeting my fam for a girls lunch and seeing the movie Elvis! Wahoo! We come from a long line of Elvis fans. Seriously though it’s true. Some kids go to the Grand Canyon for family vacation, but ours went to Graceland. I can say I’m a huge Elvis fan now as an adult. Looking so forward to seeing the movie!
I wanted to come up with a list of things that make me happy. My “happy list”. It really was easy to do and I probably could have exaggerated the list some more because I have a whole lot of happy in my life. I am not saying there isn’t bad days or sad things. Of course. But I try to lay all that down and wake up each day with a happy attitude and find the joy in even the small things. I laughed after reading my list, I didn’t realize how many food happy’s I have on there. What can I say, I like to eat. Enjoy reading and learning about all my happy’s!!
-Fresh baked cookies right out of the oven
-Smell of a rain shower sitting on my porch
-Fresh cup of coffee with good creamer
-Growing flowers and new hanging ferns every year for front porch
-New set of nails
-Long walks down TJ Max, Ross and Hobby Lobby isles ahhhhh
-A soft blanket and a good book
-Sunrise and sunset at the beach (I always set an alarm to wake before the sun does on vacay)
-Clean sheets (yes please)
-Holidays my fave being Christmas, Easter and Valentine’s Day
-New pajamas (as I get older I catch myself upping my PJ game)
-Donuts: any and all kinds. These little dough balls are just a sweet little addiction
-Dinner with girlfriends where you laugh till you cry
-Jesus: spending time in his word with him
-When that worship music hits your soul and you cry
-Cinnamon rolls with my mom (we are experts) you have to have the icing to roll ratio just right
-Arts and craft festivals: this is a tradition for as long as I can remember.
-New Ugg boots/House-shoes
-Checking cows with my cowboy
-Chic fil a always at any point in the day, I’m here for it!
-Karaoke: I love singing and watching. Always so hilarious
-Mexican food: just like chic fil a, I am always down like a rodeo clown for some chips and salsa
-Being a mama to my two girls: my favorite job in the whole world
Coming up with this list was fun and it made me happy. I think that whenever I feel blue (because let’s face it, we are all human and have bad days) I am going to read this happy list and I know my mood will instantly perk up. Y’all should make your own happy list! At 36 years old I have a darn good list, and I’m proud of it!!
Share in the comments some of what might be on your “happy list!!”
