Happy Is As Happy Does

Sixty-Fifth Avenue was kind enough to pass along to me the Happiness 101 award.

I love finding things to be happy about.

It makes me happy.

Here are 10 things that put a spring in my step today.

It smells like a Dreamsicle. And it's really lathery.


Knee socks, you are an ever-present bright spot during this grey, dreary Winter.


My white, wicker $1 Salvation Army jewelry container thingy.


Surprise tulips from a friend.


Rhubarb Reign, all of its affiliates and the ideas/confessions/proddings of said affiliates.


Cheap supermarket bouquets - in yellow.



Clementines with Sweet Cheeks.

  1. Aren't the little things that make you happy just the best! I like the glasses. I really like the highlights in your hair... I always tried to get mine like that but it never really worked very well. Too curly & way too grey in spots. I've now resorted to just doing my own every few weeks... SERIOUSLY every few weeks how much does that suck at 32!!! :) Oh one more thing. As I was scrolling down reading your post I happend to notice your follower count... HOLY SMOKES!!! You are a popular gal - well deserved! :)

  2. I love Touch of Happiness! And it's probably the creamiest, latheriest body wash I've ever tried. And it smells yummy, too!

  12. so happy... I love how the lotion says "a touch of happiness." I guess they can bottle it up and spread it, huh? Your sock collection is fab by the way. Bachelor... I catch up the juiciness via my textbook reading... US Weekly. No Vienna. No Vienna, right?

    A. The background of the Nivea photo...a sheet?
    B. Sweet Cheeks - such cuteness should be illegal.
    C. The way your glasses are kind of cutting into your cheek. Not just anyone could rock those optics like you can, Shanny.

  36. Loved all your pretties:) But your smile was probably my favorite. You look super happy in your new glasses.

  37. The thing that made me happiest about this post? Your spelling of the word "grey". It makes me think of cozy sweaters and snow clouds instead of the reality...gray rainy days:) So Grey it is! Oh, and the bachelor. Totally ashamed to admit it, but there you have it.
