Happy happy joy joy

Second Blooming
This week's Spin Cycle brought to you by Gretchen at Second Blooming in on happiness.  What makes you happy?  I'm a firm believer that the little things in life are what make you happy.  I mean, the big things, too, but sometimes the little things bring that extra joy into your day.  And that is so important to ultimate happiness.  So what things make Nain happy? 
I mean there are the big things - T and Aubrey make me happier than I ever thought possible.  That's an obvious one.  So I have to start with that one for sure.  If I didn't they'd be all like "what the what?  where am I?"  So number 1 on my list:  T and Aubrey.
And here are a list of other things that make me none of these are in any particular order.  It's more of a stream of consciousness thing.  What comes to my mind first:
Buca di Bepo food
Wine (No, I'm not an alcoholic...)
Cake Boss
Hoarders or  Hoarding: Buried Alive, though I do prefer Hoarders
Ducky Dynasty (happy happy happy)
Kisses from Aubrey
Kisses from T
Hearing Aubrey sing Ring Around the Rosie
T's impersonations of Beavis and Butthead
Really crappy 90s music
A good run
Brian Williams
Jon Stewart
Stephen Colbert
Having a clean, the process to get the house clean is a whole other thing
That feeling of accomplishment when I publish a new Examiner story
Writing in general
Taking walks with T and Aubrey
Singing the "Wubba Wubba" song from Sesame Street to Aubrey
T's honey chicken stir fry
Surprises (like getting flowers, hint, hint :-) 
Making a new friend
And lastly, girls night dinners

AND speaking of happiness....look at what surprised me when I came home!  Crumbcake from Carlo's Bakery, courtesy of the Cake Boss, Buddy!!!  T really know how to make a girl smile :-)

Now those aren't in any particular order and are subject to change.  That's just the lawyer in me giving my disclaimer.  But those are just a few of the things that make me happy.  SO what about you?  What makes you happy?
Weekends make me happy, too, and what do you know?  It's the weekend!  So have a wonderful weekend, everyone!


  1. You are the second Happy Spinner to mention Duck Dynasty, I'm going to have to check it out - I could use more happy! And I agree about the clean house thing - it's probably one of the few ways in which money really can buy happiness - I want a maid!

    You are linked!

  2. Buca de Bepo? Wasn't he a Marx Brother?

  3. Oh, and I just had to borrow another of your news stories. Drop by and see, it's in Saturday morning's post.
