Counting My Happy...

Slept 12 hours last night - cannot remember when that happened last. So today, I am loving the world and everything pleases me. Here's my happy list, so far:

1. Falling asleep with a boy tucked under each arm.
2. Waking up this morning with a boy tucked under one arm and the other draped over my head.
3. Open windows/open doors.
4. Frogs singing.
5. We all slept so soundly, my bed practically made itself.
6. Pee that makes the potty.
7. Broccoli salad.
8. Working out with the Reds. Matthew takes it very seriously and how I love him for it.
9. Daffodils.
10. Getting my hair cut/brows waxed.
11. Bare feet on hardwood.
12. Coffee, made by someone other than me.
13. New books.
14. Blog comments.
15. Opening a new bottle of washing up liquid.
16. Actually printing photos instead of saving them on my hard-drive. Bonus happy for cute frames from the dollar store.
17. Crock pot suppers.
18. Twitter peeps.
19. Cozy blankets, folded over the arm of the couch.
20. Random love from the Reds.

And you? What makes you happy?


  1. Stretchy pants that are not stretched to the limit when you put them on. Anymore.

    Sparkly pink toenail polish.

    Teal and Lime and Yellow fabric, all playing nicely together.

    Random rainy days.

    Kale salad.

    Knitting on the porch while the kids chase each other on bikes around the car parked in the driveway.
