9 Mushy Happy Things, and 1 Silly Happy Thing

This morning I laid in bed and finished reading The Happiness Project, by Gretchen Rubin. 
(I realize it's 7:40am, I am on vacation from work, and I am very much a morning person. I have always had a tendency to wake up incredibly and unnecessarily early much to my parent's dismay hehe) Rubin's book has impacted the way I think, perceive, and treat myself and the people I interact with on a daily basis. I am grateful for that, and hope I can maintain this more positive way of looking at life and engaging with others. 

Last summer in Maui.. siighhh

On that note, I'd like to start a " 10 Happy Things" feature on the blog

1. Those moments when Nadav and I are just hanging out and being our nerdy selves, and I look at him and I think, "Man, you're cute" or "Geez, I love you"
2. Driving into my parent's neighborhood and thinking about the times I rode my bike down this street as a kid, colored with sidewalk chalk on the driveways, and ran into my friends' homes to play. (There also was the time I rode my bike into a trashcan and chipped my tooth, which I also find pretty entertaining)
3. Watching Real Housewives of ANY city with my mom in her bed and talking 
4. Letting my dad show me around his front and backyard and listening to him proudly talk about all the beautiful flowers and plants he has planted
5. Seeing my brother growing up and being so proud of him
6. My best friend's baby's EVERYTHING... his laugh, fingers, smile. There's nothing like holding a baby you love.
7. The comfort of old friends and the memories we have already made and will make
8. Making new friends
9. Working on this blog, realizing it's become a hobby I love, and hoping that some people are enjoying following along.
10. One Sprinkles Cupcake (or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 Sprinkles Cupcakes)

Hope you enjoyed

I love all those 10 points!!! They are cute, and so genuine, and I feel you are a girl who is living next door to me =]

Funny thing is I just told my bf on the phone the day before yesterday that he needs to tell me at least three happy things he saw everyday. ha ha.

Totally support your blog! cutest ever!

The Happiness Project has totally changed my perception on life. I even restructured my own blog around it! I love the 10 Happy Things feature!

On another note.. Real Housewives of any city IS a totally happy thing! ha! :)
