28 Things That Make Me Happy

A few months ago I was browsing blogs when I stumbled on a tag entitled, "50 Things That Make Me Happy".  If I'm honest I can't remember which blog I first saw it on, so sorry for that.  But it has been sitting in my drafts for months now.  But this week I'm doing birthday inspired posts, so I figured I would change the number in honor of the fact that I will be turning 28!  

(Plus I love posts like this!  They're so fun!)

[one] Fresh flowers. Particularly peony's, stock blossoms, hycinthias, and hydrangeas.

[two] Reece's peanut butter cups (or pumpkins or eggs, or minis)

[three] a fresh mani/pedi

[four] Instagram

[five] The chicken strips from the Target deli.  Seriously those little babies are delicious!  If you've never had them make it a priority and do it. 

[six] Leonardo DiCaprio and his movies. Yes, even though his movies aren't exactly "feel good".

[seven] The color pink

[eight] My fur babies, Sadie and Brady

[nine] My best friends.  People tease me because I don't just have one best friend.  I consider several girls my "best friends" and they are.....Ashley, Abby, Jenny, Suzanne, Ashtyn, Monica, Jordan, Kelly, Katie, and Whitney.  Do I see these ladies everyday?  Do I talk to them everyday?  No, I don't.  But I do know that I would not be there person I am if not for each and every one of them.  So thank you girls, I cannot imagine life without any of you.

[ten] Blogging. My blog and my blogger friends!

[eleven] Clothes from the following stores: Old Navy, Target, J Crew Factory, and Francesca's

[twelve] Coffee first thing in the morning

[thirteen] Taking pictures and looking at pictures I've taken

[fourteen] Chick-fil-a

[fifteen] BOOKS!

[sixteen] Getting my hair done.  Seriously it is one of the best parts of being a girl.

[seventeen] Not having to set an alarm

[eighteen] Traveling

[nineteen] All things DISNEY

[twenty] Afternoon Tea

[twenty one] Clean sheets and a clean room

[twenty two] Harry Potter

[twenty three] Floral scented candles

[twenty four] Going to the movies

[twenty five] Singing in the car

[twenty six] Spring days and eventually summer nights

[twenty seven] Avocados!!!

[twenty eight] My family 

Well it was kinda hard to stop at just 28.  But there ya have it.  Feel free to use this on your own blog!   And let me know if you do because like I said, these are some of my favorite posts to read! :)
