2.) Things that make you happy.

I think finding joy in things is a survival skill. When I find myself giggling at people falling off sidewalks I sometimes wonder if this survival skill isn’t rooted in a little bit of evil. Regardless, I loved coming up with my first list of things that make me happy and was looking forward to making a part 2!:

1.) Kids laughing, or getting stuck, or running into walls when they’re not watching where they are going.

2.) Finding out I was right about something. I knew it!!

3.) New makeup!

4.) When all of my kids go to school on time. And happily.
smile school

5.) Feeling productive.

6.) Sleeping.

7.) Going shopping.

8.) Beating another level on candy crush.

9.) Gaining a YouTube subscriber!

10.) 90′s music.

Now it’s your turn!

Going shopping and feeling productive are things that make me happy too :)

Your happiness list made me giddy….or dizzy. Yes, I think it was dizzy!

I love makeup and online shopping. Sometimes I just fill up my online cart with ridiculously expensive fabulous items. And then, I click away.

I love all your little things (gifs? I don’t know! lol) and love your list. =)

I would agree with most of those things except I’d like 70′s music and I’ve never played candy crush. Have a great day. PS the graphics were great.

Love your choice in gifs! They make me happy!

Sorry for the double link up…. I posted from my phone, and that proved to be too difficult for me!

Great list. Love the visuals! And the fact that you included both Taylor Swift and Kanye images in the same post. Giddy Up.

Marie at the Lazy W April 17, 2014 at 10:03 am

Love this list!! and the fun illustrations, haha! Sleep, yes! 90′s music, heck yes!! LOL

Miriam Gomberg April 17, 2014 at 11:50 am

My fave was definitely Jim Carrey in a tutu. Gotta love Ace.

Definitely agree with sleeping and hearing kids laugh. Their laughter is contagious. Is that Taylor Swift acting like a boss? I didn’t think she could be hardcore about anything.

Vanessa April 17, 2014 at 3:42 pm

I love that you and I are on the same wavelength! Last week we both wrote about getting fired, this week being happy!

I love your list and the .Gifs! The one of Kanye is the best…for real though Sunday comes so fast. It’s like saturday never happened and then it’s Monday. :(

Finding out you’re right really is the best feeling too. I made my husband say “you were right” like 50 times I was like “what’s that? Can you say that again?” Aahhh…wonderful.

Have a great week

This can be a fun way to help others and also help you get to
know those you work with. We’re doing the Morgan Page tour up until
then and then after that we’re doing a couple more
weekend shows and then we’re going to take two weeks off
in December and hit the ski slopes and just relax and hit some studio time and then we’ll be back at in January
for touring and stuff. For something more than just private chat, YABA is designed to allow you to chat with who you want, in private, either one-to-one or in a special
virtual room whose entry code you can share with your friends.

If I’m having a bad day, I’mma come back here to see all those happy gifs! :)

Allie April 21, 2014 at 7:17 am

I love this and I’m going to do it today:)! From you great list – I love number 4, but unfortunately have never experienced it!

Andrea April 27, 2014 at 11:47 am

Great list! The GIFs are great, too. The Taylor Swift one made me smile. When she’s acting tough, she looks like I think I look when I’m being tough. As in not tough at all.
