    Thought we needed a happy thread around here lol so what is something small that makes you happy?

    -Hearing a new song and knowing I'm gonna like it. Like when the chorus comes on and I do a little dance

    - Vanilla ice cream with gummy bears..especially when there are no orange or yellow ones present

    - Coming home and taking my pants off lol just being in my underwear in general is pretty awesome

    - Sometimes after cracking up over something stupid or in the middle of something, my boyfriend will get this serious smile on his face, look at me, tilt his head and say "..I like you" and it feels..awesome lol I don't know why. We say I love you but for some reason I like you feels..different.

    - Merlin cuddled behind my knees with his head leaning over my leg.

    Taking my shoes off when I get home.

    The weather finally warming up enough to be pleasant out.

    Friends wanting to go for a walk this afternoon.

    Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, still warm and the chocolate chips slightly melty.

    Pulling weeds in the garden when the sun is shining and warm enough that the dirt feels warm too.

    Freshly cleaned fish tanks and fresh washed dog beds.

    Hugs from my kids

    Seeing new leaves on the trees.
    Raspberries and Cheerios.
    Having my parents follow my dogs around with their iPad when we Skype.
    There are SO many more but those three happened today so far so that's all that comes to mind.

    Playing with my dogs outside with clear, blue skies, and a light breeze, not too hot.

    Snuggling with my dogs.

    Laughing so hard my face hurts.

    Being surprised into laughing by Jason's sense of humor.

    Kastle's morning time to wake up routine.

    Sunshine.

    Water - Lake Michigan specifically.

    Going running with just Wesley in the woods. It's so nice to just be.
    My favorite songs coming on the radio, it's so much more awesome then just playing them on my ipod, lol.
    Curling up in bed with a good book.
    Nice, sunshine-y days like today.
    Silly inside jokes with my sisters.
    ...and more little things that make me happy that I'm forgetting.

    Good thread. :)

    Hannah and I had a little breakfast picnic on her bedroom floor this morning while we watched How the Grinch stole Christmas (cartoon version) in April lol. that was a pretty awesome way to start the day.

    snuggling up with a blanket on the couch in the evening after Hannah goes to bed and I can just veg out.

    pajama pants. Brian marvels at my ability to be out of my pants and into pajamas within ten seconds of setting foot in the house lol. When we went on our little mini vacation last week and we were at the aquarium all day we got to the hotel and he went in to pee... such a short pee that he didn't even close the door and by the time he came out I had already rooted my pj pants out of the suitcase and had them on. New world record lol.

    When I say something stupid and Brian just laughs and says "you're so pretty" LOL he's totally making fun of me and it's actually a line from Friends (Rachel says it to Joey lol) but it makes me laugh everytime and I usually respond with some silly exaggerated "Oh you teeeheeheehee" lol. I just like the way we pick on each other lol.

    alcohol! LOL

    Michael Jackson songs

    - Snuggling with Mike on the couch before bed, and then falling asleep with him as my pillow. Didn't realize how much that has become just part of my relaxing evening routine until he was gone, and before I.could sleep I had to put the show we watch on the the background while I read, and then snuggled with a pillow when I went to sleep.

    - Taking naps. Good naps, where your eyes just get heavy, you never really feel like you 100% fell asleep, but you feel all tingly and well rested afterwards.

    - Cookie dough icecream with sprinkles. And donuts with sprinkles.

    - Glorious warm, sunny days, where all you want to do is be outside.

    - Listening to Mike's weird conversations he has with himself.

    - A good book and goldfish crackers.

    - Snuggling with my kitty, and even though he lives with my parents, having him chirp and purr whenever he comes to greet me.

    - Zoning out while listening to music, or playing the piano.

    Going to bed with David. I feel like I have found my soulmate. I never sleep properly without him.

    The look Blake gets in his eyes hwen he breastfeeds. I hate the actual act of breastfeeding. It is still not my favorite activity but the fact he loves it and looks at me with big adoring eyes makes it worth it.

    When Briggs hugs me. It is so rare but when he does the world stops and I soak it all up.
