Ten Things That Made Me Happy This Week vol.1

The lovely Lindsay has started co-hosting with Krysten a weekly link-up for us to remind ourselves and be conscious of "Ten Things That Made Me Happy This Week".  I regularly tell her that the positive message is good for me, so I thought I'd join once a month (at least).  So, what made me happy this week?
  • Using my new Urban Decay Smoky eye palette because I love make-up, I love care packages (and it came from my mom's most recent care package she sent me), and I love my mom
  • Posting, reading, chatting, and learning about books in the Show Us Your Books link-up
  • Having a guy pick up an engagement ring that he put a lot of thought into, deciding exactly what he wanted, and he was thrilled and excited with the result
  • Getting a "Save the Date" card for my step-sister, Whitney's on the other side of the world, most people don't bother mailing me these important announcements, and it makes me feel really good when someone does
  • Stepping on the scale and realizing I've lost five pounds since I met with the nutritionist about two and a half weeks ago
  • Astro cuddles
  • That feeling of finishing a fantastic book when I closed it, consciously inhaled deeply and exhaled thoroughly and had my heart filled with emotion
  • Receiving an unexpected text from my guy that made me feel appreciated
  • Wearing a bow in my hair
  • Realizing that I've got more than 10 things that made me happy this week, and I had to cut some
 What made you happy this week?  

Never Forget


  1. So many good things! I love that you had more than ten and had to cut them. And I love a good care package too!

  2. The last comment about having so many good things happen and having to really pick the top 10 made me smile. Those are the best kind of weeks.

  3. Nothing wrong with a list that contains awesome great things that exceeds the ten. I sometimes add extras because the week has been that good.

    Yay, good for you for the pounds lost. That's you putting in effort to eat a bit better and it's working. You're making better and more conscious food choices and that's what matters.

    I'm missing my mom right now - she's in England til the 19th and we're holding down fort at her place til then. I'm used to talk to her daily so I'm missing the daily chats.

    Have a great evening love, sweet dreams and thanks for linking up. I just love ya to pieces, girl. xox

  4. I love this. That is so great that you lost five pounds! Way to go! So many things to be happy about this week. Sadly, I don't have much to be happy this week about. Work has been terrible. I did get my hair colored and I think it looks great. That's one thing to be happy about.

  5. i love love love this whole list. the whole post. so sweet!! congrats on the 5 pounds!! and yes to packages from momma. i just got one yesterday with so many random goodies inside. even though she's just on the other side of the country, it still makes my day! happy weekend, girly

  6. I love talking about books too, which maybe means that I need to join some more book clubs! And that's so sweet that your step sister sent you a save the date! I can't even imagine how hard it is to live so far apart from friends and family.

  7. What a great list! This is my first time here, thanks to Lindsay's link up. I take it that you work at a jewelry store. How awesome that must be to help men with their engagement rings and hear their different stories- and knowing that some lucky lady has a big surprise coming her way. Woot! Woot!

  8. That's a lot of awesome things to be happy about!

    Congrats on the weight loss (since I know how hard you're working). And yay for books! They make me happy, too.

  9. Pretty much ANYTHING Urban Decay makes me happy. And woot on the weight loss, go you! Thanks for linking up this week with us lady!

  10. Some of the extra things I carried over to next week.. but if i have extra next week I'm just going to add them. Why limit happiness!! lol
    I committed to being Teh German's +1 for a wedding in 2 weeks. Weddings make me all sappy even though I won't even know anyone.

  11. Sounds like a wonderful week! Good on you for the weight loss! Also, isn't it great when people ask you to save the date when you are based elsewhere? It's hard to take time off if you only find out a month or two in advance.

  12. Great list & sounds like an even better week! It's hard living away from family so I bet the Save the Date was exciting to receive! I love that you wear hair bows! Bows make me happy too!

  13. So many good things and to think you had to cut some! I love that feeling when finishing a good book and not wanting it to end!

  14. I love this idea! I'll have to check out this link-up in the future.

    Congratulations on the weight loss! It's always exciting when you make positive changes for yourself and start seeing the results. :-)

    This was a great list!

  15. A lot of cool things! I need to make a list like that as well! It's important to appreciate all the little things in life. And cat cuddles are the best of course!

  16. YAY 5 lbs you go girl!!!! congrats :) i need to wear a bow in my hair.
