Happiness Is....

You all know who Mamarazzi is right?  I usually link up with her to confess of things weighing heavy on my mind.  But that is not all she does.  She also has the "Happy List" where you can chat it up about what it is that is making you happy.  It could be anything from a card in the mail to just a really good day.  Here are some of things that make me happy.

What is making me happy?  I think I already said this, but it bears repeating...not having 100+ temps.  Yeah yeah sure it is a dry heat, but it is a suffocating heat.  You feel as though you are baking from the ground up.  And having lived back East for six years and suffered humidity I still prefer the "dry heat."  That humidity is awful.  So yes, I am very happy that I don't feel like I am baking at 10 in the morning.

It makes me smile when I buy a silly something for my kids.  I enjoy shopping for their birthdays and knowing when I have scored!  Maybe that is wrong on my part, but I can't help it.  Even when I am supposed to be shopping for myself I can't help but see something one of them would like. And that makes me happy too.

My life is crazy...crazier I should say, but I make sure I steal tiny little pockets of time for me.  I am working on allowing myself to have more, and without guilt.  Darn that mommy guilt.  But I am worth it.  I give myself Zumba once a week.  I laugh all the way through it...mostly at myself.  But it is mine.  And it makes me happy.

It makes me happy to write my DWTS posts, because everyone who reads the recaps is so supportive of me and gives me such great ego boosts.  I am serious.  Every Wednesday my head is huge!  And it means a lot.  I don't get paid, but your comments are the best.  And they definitely make me happy. (Shameless plug here...come back tomorrow for my recap!)

These are just a few of things that make me happy.  Some are silly I know.  But they make me happy.  So does chocolate.  But I try to leave food out of it. hehehe.  What makes you happy?  Link up and play along with Mamarazzi!

Oh, I'll have to come back to read your DWTS recap! I always write a recap during Bachelor season, and I love making fun of everything that's aired!

I love the idea of a happy list! I grew up in humidity too and will take the dry heat any day. :) I'm also liking the cooler temperatures.

Oh I'm happy for you that it's not 100 outside.

I'm happy that I didn't have to brush my daughter's hair today because it's "bedhead" day at school.

I do love that picture of us :). And yes, so glad the heat has broke- but did it have to go so cold? I always end up buying things for my kids too- we are just givers :)

I miss Zumba. My favorite teacher left. But it makes me happy to hear that you're happy!

I'll be back tomorrow for the recap!

CRAP! I thought I was supposed to start NEXT Tues. I suck.

Seriously, shopping for myself is so hard! I go with good intentions, and leave with tons of things for my babies, and nothing for me. I think it is a sickness. :) So glad I am not the only one.
Good for you for giving yourself Zumba! I am so jealous. One day soon I may be able to but as it stands right now, I just get to envy you.
