50 Things That Make Me Happy

50 Things That Make Me Happy

One of my goals of the 101 in 1001 project and goals for 2016 is to create a list of things that make me happy. Life can get pretty stressful, so when I need to refocus on the good stuff, I will come back to this list.

  1. Robes. Couldn’t explain this one. Maybe it’s the feeling of being naked without actually being naked.
  2. My family. Duh.
  3. Xavier. Except for that one time he electrocuted me with a lawnmower. Story for another day.
  4. Scrappy CoCo’s morning cuddles.
  5. Makeup.
  6. Clever commercials.

  1. Nail polishes with punny names.
  2. LOLCats. Did you know the entire bible has been translated into LOLCat speak?
  3. Tom Hanks. I think it’s adorable that he signs all of his tweet with “Hanx.” And, in Carly Rae Jepsen’s music video for I Really Like You, Tom Hanks lip syncs the whole song.

  1. Surprise presents. Xavier and all of my close friends know, I really don’t care for flowers. I would much rather be surprised with chocolate!
  2. Funfetti.
  3. Going to the movies.
  4. Making snowmen.
  5. Fresh clothes from the dryer.
  6. Dishwashers.
  7. A good book.
  8. The pop noise a bottle of Snapple makes when you open it.
  9. Daylight Saving Time.
  10. Sleeping in until 9 am on the weekends.
  11. Paid Time Off.
  12. Good customer service.
  13. Veronic Mars. LoVe for life.

  1. Direct flights.
  2. Drinking the milk at the end of a bowl of cereal.
  3. Licking the beaters. This is your fault, Mom.
  4. Glitter.
  5. Damn You Autocorrect. I end up crying laughing every single time.
  6. Remembering to buy shaving cream before I run out.
  7. Pocky.
  8. Products that live up to their claims, like water-proof, sweat-proof, transfer-proof.
  9. Grace Helbig.
  10. Downton Abbey. Sassy grandmas and all that.
  11. Blogging.
  12. The Sound of Music. When I was a kid, if I had to stay home from school sick, my mom and I would watch The Sound of Music together.
  13. Perfectly ripe strawberries. I’m actually eating some right now.

  1. Annoying Xavier with my singing. But I’m pretty sure he secretly likes it.
  2. Coming home from vacation to a spotless house.
  3. Blue skies.
  4. Clean makeup brushes.
  5. Window seats.
  6. Nail art. Admittedly, these are press ons from imPRESS.

  1. That feeling when you finish a job or a project, and I’m really proud of my work.
  2. Catchphrase.
  3. Watching HGTV at the gym. That one might need further explanation, but I think I will leave you with that.
  4. When the grocery store is empty.
  5. When a flight lands early AND we roll right up to the gate.
  6. Crockpot meals. I love it when dinner is waiting for me instead of the other way around.
  7. Talking to my mom on the drive home from work.
  8. When the air is just cool enough that you don’t need the heat or air conditioning.
  9. Making lists.
