Shiny Happy People

So my bestest friend over at If I Only Had the Words must have picked up on my grumpy gus mood yesterday and decided to turn that frown upside down with an award. So now instead of dwelling on all the annoyances in my life, you all get to hear the top 10 things that make me happy....not quite as fun, but I'll oblige.

1. The hubs. You'd all think I was pretty cold hearted if I didn't list him first right?
2. Our growing little peanut. I'm getting anxious now to find out what's in there, I always knew deep down I didn't have the willpower to wait until delivery day!
3. The lake. Sigh....winter months really kill the boating season!

4. College football!

5. My BIRTHDAY!! Less than four months away people, better get shopping!

6. My pups. Even though they drive me crazy 99% of the time, I still love 'em!

7. Cadbury eggs. And since the retail world celebrates all holidays early, I've been enjoying them since January already!

8. Cards in the mail. Like real actual snail mail. Usually our mailbox is full of bills and junk mail so on the rare occasion we get an actual letter, I love it!

9. My DVR. Without it I'd miss all the trashy shows I so enjoy.

10. Pay Day!! Who doesn't like a little reward after slaving away at work??

The DVR is definitely one of the greatest inventions ever!

You and your baby daddy are so cute together. That first pic is adorable! Love that you list your birthday as that is something i would do.

I'm right there with you on the real mail. I send out cards for everything. I think it brightens people's days.

Awwww Em! Love the list... what a wonderful thing to do when you are feeling less than wonderful... I am going to remember to do this! :)

Hey, quick question- if I want to whiten my teeth without getting something prescribed by dentist, what is my best option? Thanks girlie!

(Can't wait to see what your little peanut is either!) :)

Jen said...

I love Cadbury eggs too! I'd eat a whole bag of the mini-eggs by myself if left to my own devices!

Lis said...

Great list!! And I love your puppies!!! They are so sweet - I have a beagle and a coonhound mix myself - best dogs ever!!! :)

And Canbury mini eggs were my demise last weekend. Looks like the baby likes them... a lot - lol! :)

Hope you are having a great week!! xoxo

From the hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa, ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!!!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cadbury mini eggs. I will have to go stalk the aisles of the closest store for them because I didn't realize they were out already!

Kristin said...

Ahhhhhh, college football. What would life be without it? I'm ready for August. Go Gators baby!

Jules said...

Congrats on the award! The lake looks like a place that I would like to be right now. That pic of you in the birthday hat is so funny and your pups are adorable.

I have resisted the greatness that is the Cadbury Crème Egg, but I feel my willpower slipping this week.

Snail mail that isn’t bills makes me smile too :)
