23 Things That Make Me Happy

Friday, May 13, 2016

I like to do posts like this every once in awhile just as a reminder to myself of all of the things I have to be thankful for. Sometimes its easier to go through your day focused on all of the things that aren't going your way, or things that are upsetting you but if you stop for just a second and remind yourself of a couple things making you happy, it can have a huge impact on your perspective. So, here we have some things that are making me happy today.

1. Stitch and his Mike Wazowski toy. Who knew those two would be friends? 

2. No more alarm clocks, well for now anyway. Eventually I may have a real job that requires me to show up before 2:00 but for right now, I'm soaking up the extra sleep time. 

3. Laundry fresh out of the dryer. I hate doing laundry, period. But getting to pull it out of the dryer right when it dings makes it a little more worth it. 

4. Buy plane tickets. To anywhere really, but buying them to go somewhere fun makes it all the better. I finally got my passport which means I can finally book my tickets to Mexico. Cancun, I'm coming for you. 

5. Messy Box. I have pictures all over my apartment that will probably get lost in the abyss if I don't do something with them. I received my first messy box subscription yesterday, and I can't wait to get a little creative. 

6. The library and all it's wonder. I have free time lately which means I have time for books again. Books that I actually truly want to read, just because. The library is about to become my best friend.

7. New blog designs. I am constantly changing out my blog design, still trying to find the one that really fits me. It hasn't been easy, but this is probably due to the fact that there are just so many good ones out there, and I'm indecisive. I sent in a request to one of my favorite bloggers/designers this morning, and I can't wait to get moving on a fresh new look!

8. The fact that ABC family switches between Disney marathons and Harry Potter marathons on the weekends, that my happy place. 

9. Basically all the Disney movies, ever. 

10. And the fact that Harry Potter World opened up a couple of weeks ago here in LA. 

11. Pretty flowers which I got a lot of over this past weekend because of graduation. My apartment is filled with pretty little reminders of the day. 

12. The fact that in LA, I'm never far from the different seasons. I could go north to San Fran or Napa for Fall, Big Bear for Winter, and San Diego for Summer year round. 

13. Coming home to Daniel every day. I'm still not used to this and he's been back since November. It's the best feeling having someone to come home to after work each night. 

14. Passing all my classes. For some reason, our grades weren't due until after our graduation ceremony. Which means I totally could have failed something but still participated in the whole ordeal. That was stressful! Grades came out yesterday though, and I'm all good. 

15. The West Wing. I just finished season two of Grace and Frankie which means it's time for another binge-worthy series. I'm giving The West Wing a try because I've heard it's a good one. 

16. Bubble baths over showers any day.

17. Hazelnut and French Vanilla coffee creamer. There's something about the taste of either of these in my coffee that make my mornings just a little bit sweeter. 

18. Carnivals. A tiny one just came to town for the weekend and were rounding up some friends to go. I love carnivals, and funnel cake, and silly games with tickets, and oh yeah, funnel cake. 

19. Blankets from Home Good's, or really everything else from Home Good's too. 

20. Dessert before dinner. And after dinner. Really dessert any time. 

21. Maxi dresses and rompers for every Summer occasion.

22. Peaches, and cherries, and watermelon and all the other Summer fruits that are coming back into season right now. 

23. Friday's and reading about things that make other people happy.

So share yours! Happy weekend, all. 


  1. Stitch is so cute!! I love that picture.

  2. Congratulations on passing all your classes and graduating!! :)
