10 Things...

10 Things? Yes, what are 10 things that made me happy this month.  December is an exciting month in my eyes, Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Family, Friends, Love and Joy. 

10 Things that made me Happy this Month: 

  1. Christmas was last Friday and I had the best time. Not only celebrating with my family but just happy in general, because lets me real Christmas is my favorite Holiday! 
  2. I baked a lot these last few weeks. And I was loving every minute, I do not get to bake that often like I would like to. But this month I did a little more than usual. I made Homemade Pound Cake, Cookie Bars, and Blondie Cookie Bars. 
  3. Santa was good to me this year. I guess I was on the Nice List...bah ha ha...
  4. We found out at work that we are getting a raise. Yay more money! 
  5. Finding Ugly Christmas Sweaters and actually getting to wear them to a party. This year was the first time I have ever been to an Ugly Sweater Party. I got invited to another one but could not go. Walmart is the place for those.. Or Goodwill.. 
  6. Not being as negative this month... cough cough... my job... about that... 
  7. Celebrating the 3rd Annual Favorite Things Party with my Best Friend. Those parties are always fun. 
  8. Our managers at work... well 3 of them.. decided to get their 3 teams Christmas Presents and do a White Elephant at work. That was nice to get away from the desk for an hour or so. I got stuck with a Crock Pot. No one wanted it. Hey I cannot complain though.
  9. Celebrating 1 1/2 of Marriage with my Husband. Holy crap we will be married for 2 years in April. Time goes by fast. 
  10. New Years Eve is tomorrow. Matt and I are just going to stay home. Its not fun to go out anymore.. you can't drive.. and I am almost positive that Uber will be pretty expensive tomorrow night. I am fully happy and fine with just hanging out at home.

When Your Having a Bad Day....

Okay, so everyone has bad days right? I know I have lately. Because of certain things.  But I was catching up on some of my favorite reads and came across this idea... I need to remember this.. 

Read This When Your Need Something to Smile About:

I am happy when I eat healthy
When I laugh out loud to something, even the smallest things
When my Husband brings me Flowers.. Just because... 
When my husband tells me he misses me and tells me to have a good day 
When I have a good work out
When my mom tells me she loves me 
When my dog and cat greet me at the door when I walk in from work after being in traffic
I am glad to have friends who care 
Glad to have family 
Glad to know that someone is watching me from above 
Glad to know I count on my best friend 
Glad when my husband comes home and kisses me
I love when seasons change 
I love fall weather 
I love having Starbucks in the morning 
I love being able to wake up every morning and thanking God for giving me another day 
I am flattered when someone gives me a compliment 
I am flattered when I get smiled at even by strangers 
Flattered that there are some amazing people out there 
I think everyone gets lost sometimes when they have a bad day I know I do and what better way to get in a happy mood by coming up with things that your Happy, Glad, Love, and Flattered by. 
They always say it is the little things that matter most. I think people forget that. 

"Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you."
