List of Happy

Here lately, I can't help but realize how completely content with life I've been. Not that I don't still worry about paying bills, toning up my flabby thighs or who's going to clean the house today...because trust me...I do...but overall, I've really been noticing just how blissful life really is.

It's humbling.

I challenge you to take a step back from the day to day grind and cherish some of the little things in life, y'all. You may be really surprised with how much you have to be happy about!

My current list of happy...

*Texas pecan coffee...with love notes on the side

*productive mornings that consist of a full workout, a load of laundry, a round of dishes and even a little QT with the husband and Oakley...all before 9am

*becoming an aunt...very, very soon! (And by "very soon" I mean NEXT WEEK!!!!)

*happy hours with girlfriends

*The Bachelorette-is it just me or do y'all just ADORE Desiree?!

*sweet mail from even sweeter friends

*morning chats with my mom and aunt

*giant, sleepy puppy paws

*my new job and how exciting/stress-free it is (for now, I should say...)

*a much needed vacation in our near future. Le sigh...


*Big, beautiful porches, the Texas hill country and my lioness of a dog...

Take the happy challenge and tell me... 
What's making you happy?!

I need to slow down a bit! Thanks for reminding me and those paws!! they are right up there in size with Tanks!!!

    Whenever I notice my H or I getting negative, I bring up all the amazing things/people/opportunities that are in our lives and it immeditately changes our moods.

  10. This list even made me happy and it's not my life! :p's so easy to get caught up in the everyday routine that oftentimes we don't notice the little things in life that really bring us the most joy! Good for you for taking the time to notice and reflect on it in this post! :)
