My little list of joys.

Before I dive into my absolutely random post for today, can I just say how many times I was overwhelmed with joy at all of your sweet emails, texts and comments from yesterday's post? Too many to count. I mean for real. You all are the BEST. It's so refreshing to see bloggers open up about their REAL feelings and heartaches sometimes. I hope my post helped at least one person out :)

Speaking of joy... have I mentioned how awesome you all are lately? Uhh...cause you are!

The other day I came home from the office...and found a package lying on my bed with a note on the fed ex box... 

Look what my girl Kaitlyn sent me!

Does it not SCREAM "me"!??! :) I could not be more excited. I already know exactly where to hang this in our apartment. Can't wait until she can come visit and SEE for herself. ;)

Today I'm going to talk about a few other simple things that make me smile... like I was getting to yesterday, no matter WHAT you are going through...try to remind yourself of the good things in your life!
Always. Even when its tough.

So what makes me happy?

-The first blooms of summertime through your bedroom window.

-Waking up in a good mood, for no reason at all.

-When your cat understands your personality.

-Seeing a couple cross the finish line holding hands.

-THIS picture of my man, holding the fishing record for biggest catch in his family.
Not to mention he looks super hot.

-Looking back on my "Happiness Project" sentence journal.

-This hilarious cat gif.

-Umm the countdown is down to 17 days. OMG.
-Thanks to all my girls on twitter, I've decided not to get an aisle runner.
-I still need to find a "something blue" I can wear on my wedding day. Any ideas?? Get creative!
-Dole has these new Chia & Fruit Clusters (mixed berry!) and I'm kind of obsessed. Super nutritious, too!
-I actually woke up early, got myself ready...and TRIED to look cute for the office today. Woo!

Remember folks...stay happy.

& please join one of my favorite link-ups, today! Shanna is such a sweetheart!


  1. yay!!! i love all these things, they all make me very happy!

  2. yay, lists! little list of joys seems like the perfect way to start the day.

  3. Blue - my first wedding I did a necklace tail (I don't know how else to describe it other than it hooks in to the clasp and it hangs down your back) that had blue beading & my second wedding, I wore pale blue undies. My dress was thick enough that it didn't show through. You could also paint your toenails blue or sew something blue into the lining of your dress.

    That catfish is HUGEEEEE! Makes me not want to swim in waters where those exist!

    Is your cat sticking his tongue out? Because that would be awesome.

  4. I love the kitty funnies and your cat is too cool!
    My hubs and I are goobers and always cross 5k lines holding hands!!!
    Glad someone else noticed this! :)

  5. 1. Kaitlyn did great, that's absolutely adorable!
    2. I want to know more about this happiness project!
    3. The couple holding hands just made my heart happy.
    4. Add a single blue flower to your bouquet.
    My brother & sister-in-law got married over the weekend and her flowers was off white/yellow-ish daisies and teal daisies paired together, they turned out beautiful! I can send you a picture of her bouquet if you'd like.

  6. I love the one sentence journal idea. I use instagram for my daily happy/gratitude and I love taking a minute each day to get extra giddy over something. This post made me happy :)

  7. Maybe a cute blue ring on your other hand? I didn't do the garter thing because it weirds me out, but a lot of women do blue garters. Paint your toe nails blue? I got an e-mail from Julep yesterday with inspiring brial nail ideas and I thought of you. One was a french manicure and the other was nude with sparkles on your ring finger. I need to start writing in my one sentence a day journal too! I totally know what you mean about your cat getting your personality.

  8. Ok, I just looked at pinterest for some blue ideas. This is really cute

  9. Aw all of these things are so happy! I'm glad you're having such a great day :)

  10. That gif made me laugh! And that plaque is adorable!

  11. I want that sign! So happy and pretty and YELLOW. As for something blue, you can sew your new initals or "Mrs new last name" in blue on the inside lining of your dress. Or you could paint the bottom of your shoes blue. Or you could choose blue undergarments. There are tons of ideas on pinterest too! Good luck finding something you like, and I love all of your happy moments :).

  12. this post just made my day!! :) that fish is HUGE by the way!!! WOW!!!

  13. That sign is super cute! What a great friend :) There is SO much to be happy about!
