Because I'm happy

Hey there friends! I'm embarrassed it's been a week since I last posted over here. I ended May in a kinda funk and just couldn't seem to shake it through the first week of June, but I think I'm finally starting to feel more like myself again. It sounds silly but what really helped do the trick was the other night standing in my kitchen baking cookies while listening to George Strait Pandora. This simple little thing instantly lightened my mood and made me really happy for the first time in weeks. This got me to thinking about other simple little things that make me happy and I realized there were actually a lot of things. So today I want to share a list of 10 little things that make me happy; I'd love if you'd leave a comment and tell me something simple that brings a smile to your face.

1. hitting all the green lights
2. sitting at home in my favorite chair reading a book
3. falling asleep to the sound of rain
4. having a good hair day
5. turning on the radio right as your favorite song is starting
6. chips and queso
7. Harry Potter weekend on ABC Family
8. when the shoes you've been wanting for weeks go on sale
9. receiving mail
10. the color pink

PS: I'm guest posting over on Southern Finesse today while Elizabeth is away at the beach. Pop on over to check out my ultimate kick butt beach playlist!


  1. When my husband and I were living in Florida and I hated my job, I decided that if I heard Maroon 5's "Love Somebody" it was going to be a good day. I would pray everyday on my way to work that I would hear it and usually if I didn't hear it on my way to work, work would suck, but then on my way home I would hear it and it would transform my mood on my way home.

    I know it seems really silly, but something about that song just made me feel like I could make it through my horrible work day.

  2. Chips and queso always makes me happy!
    My kids telling me they love me or giving me a big hug for no reason always puts me in a better mood too!

  3. 11. falling asleep on a Friday night and not having to be anywhere Saturday :)

  4. Finding out that my husband bought me a "just because" candy bar and put it in the fridge for me to find half way through my day. haha! It's the little things

  5. Chips and queso definitely brings me all the happies as well :)


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
