7 things that make me HAPPY


Happy Friday! Today, I am sharing 7 things that make me Happy!  Some may be big things, some may be just the little things. But this week, these are the things that came to my mind that make me HAPPY! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.


1. Beautiful sunrises & sunsets from the courtesy of my own driveway


2. Warm cozy socks on cold winter days

3. Sharing delicious Trentadue Red Wine with my girlfriends 
I am so blessed to have wonderful friends. I bought this bottle of wine 2 1/2 years ago when I went to Sonoma!


4. Ingenious husbands that help out when you are in a pickle

Thursday night, I decided to try a Pinterest recipe for a green eggs & ham treat for Dr Seuss week at school. It didn't work so well, as you can see.... so my hubby advised me to try melting white chocolate instead in a bowl & then pouring it onto the pretzels with a spoon. I added a little coconut oil and we were good to go!

Pinterest fail


Hubby for the win

5. Daily morning cuddles from my adorable children
I wish I had photos of these moments but at this time of day, there is not a cell phone in sight. I just love feeling them crawl into bed with me saying "morning mom, I love you" and squeezing me tight. These moments will be engrained in my mind forever and I dread the day that my kids are "too big" for this special morning time.


6. New shoes!

I bought these adorable Keds shoes for vacation and I can't wait to wear them! They are so comfortable.
7.  Friday's - T.G.I.F. 
It has been a long week and I am looking forward to some down time, a nap and possibly a big glass of wine this weekend! 



What makes you happy?

  7. Do you live in a rural area? The view from your driveway is so beautiful and isolated! Perfect for sunrises and sunsets. I have been enjoying my fuzzy socks all winter!! I can never have enough. That wine looks so good, my husband and I are thinking of doing a date day next month when it warms up at the winery and outlets again!!

  11. Those shoes look so cute! I need a new pair of flats for spring! I just am waiting until my feet shrink (from pregnancy) & we actually see spring!
    Happiness is watching my favorite tv show in my favorite pajamas with my cat and feeling my baby kick me! :)
