Here's To Happiness

Naomi over at Rockstar Diaries has been having a segment called Here's To Happiness. The assignment is to list 10 things that make you terribly happy. At first I thought easy. Name them right now, quickly. I found myself without 10 things. I knew I needed an attitude adjustment, so I went to work on this little project. Basically boils down to thinking positive. I have a lot of things that make me happy, you just have to take a moment and pay them thier dues sometimes.
Here's some current ones.
These shoes in Powder Puff.

A couple of days ago, My John went to the feed store to buy peanuts for the squirrels. The feed store was out of the ones that come in the shell, so we had to splurge for the ones that come already shelled. Moral of the story, if you are a squirrel, eating shelled peanuts is like dining at a 5-star restaurant. I have got some happy squirrels, which in turn makes me happy.

I have fallen in lust with Chocolate Diamonds


All the encouraging comments that I receive on my Wordless Wednesday posts. This is the most fun I have all week, coming up with those. By the way, yes this week was Anja Rubik, my favorite model. Every picture was of her, now go back and look one more time. So versatile, and great hair right? Everyone has been posting the tropical "hippie" pics on their blogs lately. I thought you should know more about her!

The birds who have returned to the swing to nest for spring in thier condos. Some have distinctive markings, and I know they are the same exact birds that have returned. In all the places in the world they could go, they pick our house. That's amazing......I wake up to the chirps that escalate when I go out to feed them. (I'm not some weird bird watcher person, I saw that look!)

Fishing Time for My Captain John=Me Sundays to be spent napping, with girlfriends,shopping, or watching Sex And The City without "extra" commentary


Spending my 15 minutes of snooze either curled up to this guy, or his Daddy.

My Girlfriends, the old ones, the ones at work, the blogging ones, and the ones who tweet! You get me through ladies, you get me through....

Love this post. The first thought that came to mind for me was after my husband leaves for work in the morning, and I have an extra hour + in that big king sized bed ALL by myself. It's the best sleep. :-)
Have a great weekend, I'm prepping for St pattys day parade in Metairie tomorrow. What cocktail is appropriate for the bus ride over, as it begins at 5:30AM.
Champagne mimosas, me thinks.
XOXO
