Happy Things

There's a lot of great things about having kids.  Really I do believe that most days, usually when they are all in bed and I am sure they are asleep.  I then sit and reflect on what angels they are, until one of them wakes up and asks for something.

I'm kidding mostly.  There are a million little things everyday that make having kids very cool.

Like a trip to the grocery store with Lucy.  "Take me, I love to shop," she told me.  Everything is interesting and fascinating to her, even the recycle machine.

She zips around from aisle to aisle asking questions.  Like I've said before, she isn't afraid to talk to anyone to get answers.  So, if I can't give her one, she'll set off to find "someone that works here" and she does.  I love that she won't stop until she gets answers.

Lucy brings me a lot of joy.
So do my other kids, I mean come on, how could this not make you smile?

Especially when they get along with each other.

Other things that bring me joy (especially during those moments when the kids aren't so cute):

Auto-tuning.  Yup.  I love it.  It's like America's Funniest Home matter how dumb, I always laugh.

Kristen Bell got auto-tuned. A video I didn't think could get any better or funnier, totally did.

Here's good old Phil getting auto-tuned on Modern Family.  Also funny.

Starbucks, fun Valentine's cups and iphones, ahhh, now that's real joy.

These hand dancers.  No idea why, but watching this video makes me smile.

More things that make me happy:
-any song with Pit Bull in it
-a clean kitchen
-a long run
-wine, and more wine  (Always red)
-awards show opening numbers and great acceptance speeches
-a good book (and time to read it without interruptions)
-date nights with my husband
-movies at the movie theater
And so many more things.
What makes you happy? What brings you joy?  I hope whatever it is you get to do it this weekend.
