Things That Make Me Happy...

I've had a pretty rough time the last couple weeks, mentally and emotionally. I have a lot going on that's been hard to deal with lately and it's been wearing me down to where I've just been stressed and upset a lot. Which isn't normal for me because it takes a LOT to wear me down like that which ends up irritating me even more because I hate letting things get to me to the point of where I feel so down. Anyway, to combat some of those negative feelings, I'm going to make a list of some things that make me happy lately.

  • The Dallas Stars are 10-3-0 right now. They're first place in their division, first place in the Western Conference, second in the entire league and the first team in the NHL to reach ten wins so far this season. Hockey always makes me happy but seeing my team playing so well and winning makes me even happier. :D
  • The movies "Horrible Bosses" and "Gnomeo & Juliet."
  • Peppermint mochas & salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks.
  • Bubbles.
  • Getting to ice skate on a regular basis again.
  • New art supplies.
  • Sitting on the front porch enjoying the cooler weather, drinking pomegranate tea and reading a book. With the only noise being the sounds of nature and occasionally a passing car.
  • New friends.
  • Good friends that listen really well. :)
  • Pumpkin cheesecake. And pumpkin spice coffee. And pumpkin bread. And pumpkin candles. Pumpkin stuff everywhere!
  • The Black Keys.
  • Hugs.
  • Baking gingerbread cookies from scratch and making the house smell delicious.
  • Overstuffed comfy chairs and super soft blankets.
  • The weather being cool enough for me to bust out the fuzzy socks and hoodies again.

So, what are some things that make YOU happy lately? :)

Happy Monday!

I have recently defined it...It's Money. Money truly makes me happy. why? because I feel downright shitty when I don't have any. So, I am on a mission to find all the Washingtons, Lincolns, Adams and Benjamins I can get my hands on...
