My Happy List..

This weeks HAPPY list..

Went to a friends house for playgroup and lookie what she had in her backyard! An orchard!
{Please, try to contain your excitement}

Got to hold this sweet little baby this week .. her little baby rolls are just perfect.
Baby fever is in FULL BLOOM.

My husband left with the kids..
No, he didn't leave forever {although I'm sure he thinks about it on occasion when things get super crazy loud in this house}.
So I got a day and a half ALL to myself.
I was able to do some things that I wouldn't have been able to do with the kids here.

I got my bike out, loaded up my photography workbook, Lola, my wallet and rode my bike to Borders.
My friends.. I was there for 2.5 hours!

{And now that I'm thinking about it.. I'm thinking my poor bike needs to be named.. makes the connection much more personal between owner and bike. So when I crash or fall down and start throwing {nice} curse words at her I feel as if I'm talking to a person and not just a bike.. "Gosh darn it <insert soon-to-be-bike-name here>, this is all your fault!".. See, it works.}

I missed my kids and I missed my husband. And now I'm ready for them to come back.

Started running again.
Gives me time to clear my head.. to listen to the gentle whispers and reminders God puts in my heart.
Time to think, re-organize and de-clutter the junk that clutters up my mind.

And this, quite possibly could be the happiest place on Earth.
Admit it, you know it's your happy place too.

Dollar bin, air conditioning, shoes, food, make-up, clothes.. seriously, what more is necessary?
I need to invest in Target stock, then I wouldn't feel so bad spending my allowance there.

And that, peeps, is just some of the things that make me happy..
Because, I'm sure you were just dying to know :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
