10 Things That Make Me Happy

10 things

I’ve been slacking big time on the blog posts. It’s not that I have no interest in doing them, but with a  2 year old && twin 5 month olds my free time is very limited. Plus my other roles as a wife, chef, maid, entertainer, etc. I feel like I haven’t had a second to myself in awhile. With the holidays && not having my father around, it’s been it bit of a bummer to get through but I’m happy 2018 is here. Although my 2017 was bittersweet I hoping for a healthy, wealthy && extremely calm 2018.

This year I’m going to try to be a bit more positive, calmer && just make time for myself && write. In no way am I a professional writer but I find its my therapy. It’s a way for me to express myself, from the good to the bad, to my opinion and outlooks on things and the best part is no one can tell me otherwise because its my blog. I decided to write this post because I came across this list on Pinterest (I origin LOVE Pinterest) which has a bunch of topics Id be interested in writing. I think it would be fun and something I’d enjoy doing so here it goes: 10 THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

  1. My children, I know this is a given but they truly are the best things that ever happened to me. they are my greatest accomplishments. I look at them and I really can’t even believe they’re mine. My daughter is my best friend, she is the replica of me in so many ways and my boys, oh my god, true loves and the fact that I have 2 of them totally amazes me.. I really never knew true love until I laid eyes on all 3 of them. Don’t get me wrong I loveeeeee my husband, but a child, your own child who you carried for 9-10, who sucked the life out of you in order to build theirs… there’s nothing better.

  2. Oreo cookies – I know that’s a fatty in me HaHa but I’ve always loved them ever since I was a little girl. I remember my grandmother would even get me the oreo tins for christmas… THE BEST! && seriously they’re the best cookie ever I don’t care what anyone says. To this day they are a must have in the house at all times. Ask my husband… If we run out this is a serious issue.


  3. Movie: Devil Wears Prada – I’m not even a fashion buff, I just absolutely love everything about this movie. I can totally change the mood I’m in if I come across it on TV.


  4. Coffee – A good cup of coffee that is… I’m sure this makes a lot of people happy in different way but after staying home all day with 3 kiddies, I really look forward to going out to get that nice cup of coffee by myself, while of curse my husband watches the kiddies. Whether it be from D&D, Starbucks or even McDonalds… as long as I’m in my moment of peace & quiet there is nothing better.


  5. Naps – When the kiddies nap that is – Now I know some of you think it’s totally impossible to get them all asleep at once but you can ask a couple of my friends, even family… I’ve mastered this at times and truly it is the best feeling because there is complete peace and quiet in my house. Even my dog takes this time to relax && honestly if all my tasks are done throughout the day and I have a chance I may even squeeze in some shut-eye because I am literally drained.. capone


  6. Sales – I mean really who doesn’t get happy when things are on sale? Especially on something I want… I feel like the great coupon lady when this happens && on the plus side I can con my husband a bit better with the whole “But look at this sale” if necessary… although he never questions me it’s always good to have a back up argument.

  7. My Girlfriends – My mother always said to me, “as you get older if you can count your true friends on one hand you’re lucky, not everyone will stick around” && now looking back I realize how true that statement was… when I was young I just agreed and carried on but now that I’m older I can totally relate. I have best friends, good friends && just friends and that’s ok with me. After everything you go through in life whether it may be good or bad, those people who stood by you through it all, are the ones. You can let days, weeks, months get in between but when you need them, they don’t hesitate. I thank god for you guys, there’s nothing like a good conversation!


  8. Rain – I love rain, of course not being stuck in it or driving in it because people can’t drive as it is and when the slightest bit of rain falls they act like it’s a monsoon but the rainy days when you have nowhere to go and you can just watch && listen. It really is so cozy && relaxing.


  9. Reading a Good Book – I haven’t had much time lately but there’s nothing like getting lost in something for a couple of hours where you get so absorbed and hooked that you can’t even put the book down…


  10. && last but certainly not least My Husband – The only man who can both get under my skin && I melt for… He loves me unconditionally. At the end of the day he is my rock, although stubborn there is no one else in this world I would rather be with. On my worst days, even though I don;t believe him because that’s just me, he makes me feel like a rock star.

Please if anyone wants to do a blog post like this be my guest && let me know I’d love to read em.
