happy list v.6


a happy list

one // Having an absolutely amazing blended family.  I love and appreciate my family. How we are always there for each other and include each other in as many things as possible.

two // Celebrating my birthday. My coworkers were so wonderful and decorated my desk, baked me an apple pie, and bought me sweet gifts. Not to mention, my secret pal dropped off an adorable birthday gift basket while I was on my break! Then, when I got home John surprised me with a Cricut!

three // Signing up for my first 5k for 2018. Because of “early bird” deals, I could not help but register more than six months in advance for the Bubble Run 5k. I only had to pay a $20 registration fee! I did the Bubble Run 5k earlier this year and had such a fun time.

four // My cousin and his girlfriend getting ready to have their baby! They were admitted to the hospital the day before my birthday on the eighth and we are all eagerly awaiting his arrival.

five // Getting a new roof on our home. While this was not our first choice to spend such a large sum of money on, it was a must. A few weekends ago our roof began to leak! Since then, every time it would rain (which has been every day) we would stress out. We are definitely thankful to have a new roof over our heads with a thirty year warranty.

six // New purchases. Recently I have bought a few goodies to treat myself. One of my favorites is the Make Yourself at Home book by Moorea Seal!

what has made you happy lately?

  • Those types of expenses are never fun but always necessary. The peace of mind you get from having a new roof is the real gift!

    Hope you had a fabulous birthday!

    • I will absolutely agree that it has brought an amazing peace of mind to both my husband and I. We no longer cringe when it starts raining! Thank you so much ♥

  • I bet you are going to get lots of use out of that new roof though. So worth it for not having to worry about it, even if it’s no fun at the time. Also, happy birthday! 🙂

    • The roof definitely wasn’t the first on my list of things I wanted to purchase, but it definitely does make life a lot less worrisome! Thank you so much ♥
