I've been so busy lately, I've had a hard time relaxing. So today I want to list the things that make me happy in my life.
My favorite flower growing in the woods by my house - Sweet Williams we call them around here - they smell divine.
My husband passed his surveying exam - he's a professional land surveyor! He's my best friend and he's super cute & handy! Plus, he has his dream job now - the fact that he loves it - makes me happy
The fact that I'm sitting here typing and Trudie, is snoring by my feet. She sits by me wherever I go. This photo shows off her younger figure!
The fact that a very long year - really provided us with an amazing home. It still amazes me that my husband DID this! Can you believe he built this whole thing! Seriously - he should get a medal for that!
My sisters. They are stupid in a good way & they make me laugh hard.
(Me, Abbie, & Maggie - For some reason all our group pictures has Abbie graduating - I think she is up to 7 degrees - ha ha - kidding sister!)
I made pretty babies.
Aubrie at her 2 month old baptism in her Great Grandpa Jack's baptism gown.
Everett at 5 months. (I nursed - hence the shirt. We thought it was ha-larious. Abbie made it for him.)
Other things that make me happy:
My Mom. I miss time with her now that I have kids that hog it! Sometimes we get a day to go shopping without them and it makes me happy. Plus, she was a lifesaver this past weekend and a huge help. I heart her.
My niece Caroline. Her smile is contagious & looks just like Maggie's!
My best friend Melissa. My ridiculousness is matched by hers & goodness we have a blast together. Last time we were together we had a cheerleading heel stretch competition - we bring out the foolishness in each other!
My blender - lately I make one helluva daiquiri - and yes I say it just like that.
Freshly painted toenails - seems weird with all the family friend talk, but yeah I like nice toenails and flip flops.
Jason Mraz and Shakira - what a combo of CDs that just instantly make you want to dance.
My pillow - I've had it at least 6 years and it's Perfect! That's why it's brand is The Perfect Pillow - makes perfect sense doesn't it!
Snoop Dog - just saying - him and Dre can really bring it. Wish I could play it, but geez I have kids.
The Tudors - every week - awesome television & like a date with my husband without leaving the house.
Popper popcorn with half a stick of butter. Yes I just admitted that to you, but golly it's good!
Lots of jewelry & heavy eye make up. You'd think I was 20 again, but I like a reason to put on some bling & play up the eyes.
Day dates - I live for day dates with Jade - even better if we get to spend the night away too!
Cardinals games - do I like the games - no - but I like popcorn & a date day - get it!
Hearing the wind at night with the windows open.
Babies cheeks - again random I know, but aren't they just so sweet to kiss when they are chubby! I just realized I was sad because Aubrie lost hers and Everett's are going away. Then, I picked up Caroline at the babysitters & instantly kissed her chubby cheeks!
You guys & your comments & blogs. You crack me up & I dig our conversations!
So I ask you - what makes you happy? Feel free to leave me a big old list like you blogged in my comments - guarantee it will make me happy too!
