Remembering My Happy

Misty recently posted a list of 25 things that make her happy, and I'm totally ripping it off, post title and all. September and October were stressful. Jacob is still recovering from knee surgery and somehow my ten hour a week job has turned into twenty! I like the work, but Milo is only in preschool six hours a week, so I'm still a stay-at-home mom. That means I'm mostly working nights and weekends, which isn't so fun. We also all just came down with a bad respiratory infection and no one is sleeping well. Obviously my life isn't terrible and I hate that I've been complaining so much lately because I know I have it easy. It's time to focus on the little things that make me happy. Here's a list of my favorites.

1. Rain
2. Breakfast in bed
3. A book I can't put down
4. Singing in the car
5. Lifetime Original Movies
6. Toes in the sand
7. Date night
8. Checking things off lists
9. Curling up with my cats and Netflix
10. My kids' school performances
11. Eight hours of sleep
12. Sweaters
13. Planning vacations
14. Going to the movie theater
15. School supplies
16. Family selfies
17. Friendly, polite strangers
18. A clean house
19. Christmas movies and music
20. Black nail polish
21. Going to Target alone
22. Cheeseburgers
23. Apple cider flavored and scented everything
24. When people understand my movie quotes
25. My kids' bedtime (reading and cuddling and talking about the day, then the peace and quiet that follows)

What little things make you happy?

Love it, I'm going to have to borrow it soon too. I haven't done a love it list in a while.

A book I can't put down, checking things off lists, sweaters, planning vacations, and a clean house all resonate with me!

I love black nail polish and a book I can't put down and watching Netflix and travel planning and alone trips to Target are all on my happy list, too!

Black nail polish, Netflix, a good book, and ALL THINGS Christmas! Yes!!

On Fridays, I've been linking-up with a 'Ten Things that Make Me Happy' post. It's be a great activity for me to regularly think of all the things that surround me that bring me happiness. We share a few - black fingernail polish, books, curling up with cats...

Things that make me happy, time home alone, my grandchildren, Tim, waking up each morning, the rest of my family

Yes to all of these things!
