10 Things that Made Me Happy this Week 14

10 Things that Made Me Happy this Week

[Note: This is NOT in order of importance.]

ANDDDDD….. This week I’m going to do 12 (that’s right, TWELVE) things that made me happy this week.  It was a good week, what can I say?

1  Charlie’s 8th Birthday last Saturday.  We had a friend come over with her dogs and had a mini-celebration.  He also indulged in some raspberry sorbet.  🙂

2  I took over the Instagram account for @thebloglife101 last Saturday and it was a ton of fun and met a lot of great new people, even some from the Greater Toronto Area.  🙂

3  Meeting some new dogs and cats on my schedule last weekend.

4  Getting back to the gym on Monday.  I felt like crap all last weekend.

5  A woman at my workplace asked me for some tips and to mentor her a bit as she starts her paleo journey.

Megan helped me with a few blog-related questions this week and I was super grateful.  Some bloggers won’t give you the time of day but not Megan, she’s super nice, HILARIOUS and helpful. Go check out her blog! 🙂

7  My mom is home from her holiday in Barbados!  I missed her so much!

8  Letting go of some things that I’ve been holding on to for awhile.  Why waste my energy?

9  Cleaning.  Yes, cleaning made me happy this week.  I have to admit that with this Paleo lifestyle, most of my free time is spent in the kitchen.  I hardly sit down on the couch anymore unless I make a point to purposely take a moment to chill.

10  So I’m a few years late but I grabbed my very first pair of Toms last weekend and they’re awesome!  Just like wearing slippers.  🙂

11  And once again, a little late to the punch:  purchased and received our very first Scentsy order.  LOVE Scentsy, I’m hooked!

12  Knowing that I’m off today (Friday) Yippee!

What made YOU happy this week?

  • Well, that Johnny Depp quote/picture make me happy 🙂 Also I love that you had a birthday celebration for your pup. What a great mama you are!

    Also I’ve never owned a pair of Tom’s either, but have heard such great things about them as a company and how comfy their shoes are. Thanks for the reminder to check them out!

    Oooof. I have to seriously deep clean the apartment. Maybe I’ll blast some music later and vacuum, dust, and scrub the hell out of everything 🙂 XOXO and have a great weekend, momma!

  • It’s RUDE of bloggers to blow off people who ask questions.

    Hurrah for doggie birthday parties!

  • Some bloggers I guess can’t be bothered or don’t care, or both.

  • Yay for all of these things! I’m going to try going grain-free (or reduced grain) for 30 days because I currently feel like crap and my baby belly isn’t going away as quickly as it did with baby #1. My girl is almost 2 and I’m sick of having the baby belly still. I’m hoping the new diet + exercise will jump start some progress. Is grain-free like paleo?

  • Honestly, try reduced or grain-free altogether and I’m sure of it that you’ll see a difference. I didn’t need to lose weight but I got rid of fluff and even some cellulite and I’m just blown away, plus I FEEL good. :). Have a great weekend my friend. Xox

  • I was looking for some quotes and loved that one immediately when I saw it. 😉
    We’ve always celebrated our dogs’ birthdays. Might seem silly or stupid to some but it’s fun and we enjoy it so why the f not?

    You must check out Toms! They’re super comfy! I was at Costco one night after work and they had one skid of tons for $47 and people were SCRAMBLING! I was able to find size ginormous and it was a done deal. I figured good score, I couldn’t pass it up. 🙂

    Ugh the cleaning and chores never ends!!!! I have a long list of shit to do tomorrow afternoon when we get back from visiting Jeff’s parents.

    I hope you have a great weekend love xoxoxo

    Always getting back to the gym/working out after a break is the best. And I also took over The Blogger Life this week and it was a blast! Thanks for sharing!

  • Well, you know I am not in that category of “people who find it ridiculous to celebrate pets.” HA!

    Oooooh, I didn’t realize Costco carried Toms. Will take a gander 🙂

    Chores really don’t ever end. Le sigh. But–there’s always later. Right now it’s too beautiful and I have more city to see. Have a great weekend, momma!! XOXO

  • I’m always the most disciplined Monday to Friday..: weekends I stray a but so Monday’s are always welcome just for that sake alone. :)I saw you took over the IG account this week too! It was a lot of fun, eh!?

    Have a great weekend love xoxo

  • You’re a lover like myself.;) that’s one reason why I love you so!

    I think it was fluke Costco had them but worth a shot looking. Good luck! 🙂

    Have a great weekend darlin xoxo
