H Is For Happy

First off, welcome to Week 2 of the A to Z Challenge!  I can't believe how many new people I've "met" already and we are just getting started!  If  you are new here, welcome to the party!

Now let's move on to the letter of the day.  I'm just going to come out and say it--sometimes, being happy is hard.  Even if you have no real reason not to be.  And for someone who is prone to letting complaints pass her lips much more often than praises, I think it's high time for me to talk about just what makes me happy, and to do it in list form, which is always my favorite!

Things that make me deliriously happy....
  • German potato salad
  • My whole family gathered together in one place
  • This face
  • That song I loved but had forgotten about coming on
  • I no longer drive an 11 year-old minivan (though I am thankful to have had it in my hour of need!)
  • Drive-thru ice cream places
  • Milk Duds
  • We Bought a Zoo (watched it over the weekend and loved it!)
  • A good haircut  (getting one today, in fact!)
  • A long nap in the middle of the afternoon
  • Planning for vacation
  • Pedicures!
What's making you happy today?  Tell me all about it and let's all practice being happy!


  1. Thanks for sharing this...I like you sometimes share my groans when in reality I should be HAPPY. Then there are days it is like sadness sets in for NO apparent reason. Have a Happy Day!

  2. That face is a happy-making face! Drive-through ice cream places - yes. Pedicures - yes! TJ Maxx! Hiking! Horses!

  3. Definitely love naps and milk duds. And that little face would make anyone happy! Great post and happy A-Z blogging!

  4. Chex Mix... My new guilty pleasure.

  5. I'm actually in the middle of doing a series of posts - 100 things that make me happy. Some days I have a hard time coming up with stuff, but really, even small things can make you happy. I love your list! :o)
