My happy things

Ten things that make you really happy is today's Blog Everyday in May challenge topic.

This was probably the easiest post ever to write! I am by default a very happy person, thanks to the big man upstairs. Of course I have my Debbie Downer moments (who doesn't?) but in general, I am a happy person! Here's a list of the things in life that make me the happiest ever!

1. My husband. There's no one in this entire world who can make me even half as happy as he makes me. He's my better half. And I get to keep him FOR-EV-ER.
2. Sunshine beating down on my skin. I am naturally a cold-natured person, so the warm weather really draws me in. I like driving my car without any A/C on, with the sun hitting my skin. Is that weird?

3. The Fourth of July. What happens when you combine summer, fireworks, and the great U.S. of A?! JULY 4TH. It is for sure my favorite holiday of all stinkin' time!!!

4. Finding a good sale item. I love a good sale. I check Groopdealz every day and I also look for online coupons for things that I plan to buy. EX: I bought some Kendra Scott earrings over the weekend on her website. It was free shipping, plus I got 15% off. SO excited!

5. Babies. I am legitimately obsessed with my baby cousins. There are 3 girls and 1 boy. And they are the sweetest of all time. Pictured below are the girls; I didn't have a recent pic of the baby boy.
6. Puppies. I like all kinds of puppies, not just my own. How can you not smile when you see a small doggie? Big doggies are okay too, nothing against them, it's just that my heart smiles at small ones.
7. Country dancing. Husband and I have been taking dance lessons for a month now, once per week. And it was one of the best decisions ever. Not only is it a fun date night to dance together, but we're learning SO much. I can't wait to show off my dance moves for y'all sometime. Maybe we'll have to post a video :)

8. Having no plans on weekends. I get so excited on Saturday mornings when I have nothing planned for that day. I love the freedom to do whatever we want, with no time schedule. Being busy is fun, to an extent, but it can be exhausting.

9. Movie-watching. Probably my favorite weekend activity. There's nothin' better than making the house pitch black, turning on a movie, and cuddling up with a blanket.

10. Chocolate. I am bad to the bone. I totally know it too. Ever since I was a little girl, I've been eating chocolate like there's no tomorrow. Hence, the chubbiness of my body. BUT I am not complaining! I am happy at my weight.


  1. mmmmm..... chocolate! My favorite thing too!

  2. I love the 4th of July! It's a big family holiday for us, so it always makes me happy to have that day on the horizon :)

  3. Um I think we are TWINS. Every single thing on this list is on my list! Especially sunshine, chocolate, babies and the 4th of July! :)

  4. The 4th is my favorite holiday! It just makes me SO happy. I don't want to say I love being American, because that sounds arrogant, so I'll just say I love being a patriot, haha.

  5. I love finding a good sale, makes me so happy to know that I saved!!! Free weekends are the best, when they come around!

  6. Can I just agree with all of them! I love waking up on Saturday mornings (with no plans) and going out to get breakfast!

  7. Awe I wish there was country dance lessons up in Wisconsin, if I knew of any. That's one of the reasons we'd love to move down to Texas in the next couple years. ;)

  8. I thought I was the only one who checked Groopdealz everyday hahaha! and I can relate to almost all of these too!!

  9. I agree with SO many of these...especially #1, #2 (Love the heat), #5 (My boss once said, "If there's a baby in the building, Sharlee will be holding it.") #6, #7 (only been once), #8 (I take no pride in being busy. I LOVE not having plans. LOVE it!!!) #9 (Netflix is our friend), and #10...of course! :)

    Fun post!

  10. I thought I was the only one that loved the feeling of sun on my skin! And those 2 puppy girls of yours...always adore pictures of them... hubby's are seriously the best. Love that picture of you two!!!

  11. You are the cutest thing! Such a great list. I was nodding my head at every single one of them.

  12. Aw, I love this list! The joy of finding a great sale really is QUITE wonderful. I never think about it until it happens, but thanks for reminding me :)
