Arrived home very late last night from our DC college touring/sightseeing jag (don’t worry- posts to follow).  Here’s the thing about a trip- you’re doing only things you want to do, so even if you are tired and your legs hurt from walking, it’s really easy to be happy.  But, during real life, sometimes you need a little reminder.  As I am a little sore and a lot tired this am, and I didn’t prepare a post for this morning, you receive a list of the things I do on a weekly basis (or daily in some cases) to bring some joy into my life:

  1. buy flowers
  2. have a “date” with my husband
  3. have a “date’ with my daughter
  4. playdate with a friend
  5. read
  6. page a day journal
  7. blog
  8. have a 20 minute relax and unwind session with a cup of tea
  9. face mask (the skin care variety, not the Halloween type)
  10. bath
  11. listen to music
  12. cook/try new recipes
  13. do Buzzfeed quizzes
  14. play some sort of game app
  15. exercise
  16. laugh
  17. plan out something fun for the weekend
  18. take pictures
  19. text my besties who live in other parts of the country
  20. organize something

This is my particular list: the things that make ME happy.  What’s on your list?  What are the things that bring a little joy into your day/week?

I will be catching up on blogs and such over the next few days!!

      1. When our youngest went off to college, I commandeered the room. I do share it with my husband’s baseball card collection but I’m trying to figure a way to condense his stuff – LOL

    1. Ahhh….I freelance. I’m concentrating on finishing my novel. But most of these things are weekly. Reading might be on,y daily. And I am not really known for sleeping.

  1. I like to start each day reading a little from the Bible. Hubby and I have gone out on a date Saturday night since we were married 🙂 We had babysitters for the kids when they were younger, it was wonderful to have just “us” time then and now.
