10 things that make me happy rightthisverysecond

1\\Any form of heat creating device. My fingers are like ice all of the time. Blankets, space heaters, fireplaces. I know it was warm for a few days recently but man am I still dethawing from the winter!

2\\Coffee! Also heat creating but also so so much more!

3\\Well it is a Friday afterall so I'm happythat we get to hang out with our best friends tonight, like every Friday.

4\\Scrolling through pretty blogs and Instagram accounts. I just like to look at pretty things what can I say? Like Brittany, just try and scroll through her blog and not get the warm and fuzzies. You cannot. And here is my newest favorite Instagram feed too! Bangs for days...

5\\This Fixer Upper group on FB that Steph invited me too. People helping people and actual photos in actual homes of people who just really want to be like Joanne Gaines. We all should want to be a bit more like Joanna Gaines.

6\\I'm still really living up the good news we got regarding Letty last week. We had been concerned about her academically and got her evaluated and it was all good! It's funny how you can hear someone else say something about your child and it change your entire viewpoint. Well not funny haha but funny interesting. I went from thinking, she's totally "normal" academically just stubborn to omg she has dyslexia I just know it within the course of an hour. And then after last week's meeting to be like well I knew she was "normal" all along, duh! Just nice to have it confirmed by professionals am I right? And hey! She knows fourteen letters now! Slow clap for Letty!

7\\This sweatshirt. It's warm! It was so cheap! And I love the sentiment. Thanks for finding it Kelsey!

8\\Our cabinet doors are finally back up! If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that we decided to take the plunge and paint our cabinets... well my kitchen is finally put back together after six full days of chaos and I looooove the finished product! I may never leave...

9\\Finally deciding on what to do with David next year. I hate when something is unresolved so having it waiting in the wings was getting old. We're switching preschools for the boys after much much (much) deliberation. So yay for no more discussions! It has been decided.

10\\That I'm done shopping for the Easter Bunny. Not that the kids need more toys, of course they don't. But I do so enjoy crossing things off my list. Among a few other small things, Letty will get this Headband Set because the girl is on a headband kick and she just loves all things "art" related. David will get this Baymax Action Figure and Dominic will get this Glow Seahorse because the poor poor boy sleeps alone and its time he gets a friend.  Now to hide the candy from Matt...

So what's been making you happy lately? Happiness all around!
