10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week 35

Ten Things That Made Me Happy This Week

10 Things that Made Me Happy this Week

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

1  Spending the entire weekend with the boys.  It was so nice to kick back and enjoy our first weekend back home.  *happy faces*

2  A promotion at work.  Although I was apprehensive at first, I’ve come around to the job I was offered and I’m now ‘Acting’ in that position.

3  Yay!  Charlie finished his 6th hydrotherapy appointment and did so with flying colors!!  They were SO pleased with how he’s progressed and bonus: his quad on his left hind leg versus his right is now a 1 cm difference and three weeks ago there was a 3 cm difference.  So he’s getting stronger and building muscle in his leg, which is exactly what we wanted to happen.  I’m so, so pleased and PROUD!  🙂

4  Air Conditioning.  Yep, grateful for this wonderful invention because we’ve had a heat wave for the last week and it’s relentless.  My poor mother’s A/C broke and they can’t get someone out til tomorrow.  JE-SUS!

5  Chatting with bloggy friends – this actually makes me happy every single week.  The friendships I’ve found in these girls that live around the globe.. it’s indescribable.  Even though there are great distances and in some cases, oceans that separate us all, I really love you guys!  I wish we could all teleport ourselves to one location and just hang out and have a great time together.

6  Jeff and I got these awesome balls for rolling out muscles.  They get into crevices our big foam roller doesn’t get.  If you have tight or sore muscles, you NEED to get foam rollers and the nubbie balls.

7  Summer dresses.  With the heat we’ve been having, they’re a MUST.

8  Seeing Baxter upside down on the couch snoozin’ the days and nights away.  Baxter is a happy boy if he’s upside down.  A sleeping puppy is a happy puppy. 🙂

9  Advice from others this week about the new job.  I had a shitty outlook initially but that’s turned around after talking with Jeff, my mom, a few friends and co-workers.

10  Looking ahead to this long weekend – three day weekends are the bomb!  🙂

And BONUS: 11  Getting excited about my guest post on Breanna’s blog, Brea Getting Fit, that will be featured next Friday, August 7th!

What made YOU happy this week?  What are you guys up to this weekend?!


Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!

    I’ll probably post another one soon, love 😉
    xoxo Have a great weekend hun!

  • Definitely pros and cons but I’m trying to look at the positive and down the road where this could lead. I’m hopeful. 🙂

    Everyone has a three day long weekend because it’s a statutory holiday on Monday, some national holiday of some sort. LOL Don’t worry, Americans get more national holidays, TRUST ME. 😉 xo

  • Again, I needed one of your happiness post. A friend of mine, the one I posted on instagram, has passed away today. 37 years old, leaves behind a husband and two kids. My heart hurts 🙁 I really like our blogger chats & I hope you are including me in that #5 spot.

  • Oh sweetheart, no 🙁 that’s far too young 39 years old… My goodness… I’m so sorry love. Sending so much love and light your way *hugs*

    Absolutely girl, you are one of the handful of people I was referring to in #5, I just love you to pieces. Xo

  • Hope you’re mom’s AC is back online soon! It was nasty weather last week. And yay for a relaxing weekend. We had one of those as well. So nice!
