Last week was a crappy one. With one of my daughters being sick, me not feeling well and not being in the mood to work out and having spotty or no internet most of the week and not being able to blog had me in a shitty mood most of the time. But, I’ve been trying my best to focus on the positives this year so I wanted to share a few things that made me happy last week, despite all the craziness. 🙂
Things That Made Me Happy…
It’s my mom’s birthday today and we all went out yesterday for lunch to celebrate. I’m really close to my family and with my two kids and my sisters four kids, it’s not always easy for us to find time to hang out so
I’m always happy when we get to spend the day (or a few hours) together.
I’ve been using my Notes journal and my planner a lot lately and I wrote down a few blog post ideas for both of my blogs. I always like having a plan or schedule for what I’m gonna post that week (that’s as far as my planning goes) and I have this week covered. Now to start planning for next week.
I feel very passionately about things, that’s just how my brain is wired. Blogging and books is one of those things I am passionate about and music is another one. I always love finding good music, especially new (to me) artists that I can obsess over. Because when I find a new artist, I must download ALL of their music, listen to it obsessively, watch all their performances on youtube, interviews, etc. My latest music obsession is Halsey. I am in love with her music!
The weather has been nice lately, finally! I live in Arizona so granted we don’t really have a ‘winter’ like most other states do. But we’re used to the heat and this year was a record breaking cold winter for us, I was sick of being cold (even if it was only in the 50’s). The weather has been in the 70-80’s and I’ve been loving it!
My house is clean! With two kids, it’s hard to find time to clean sometimes. Or to keep it clean. Yesterday I woke up early and I cleaned my house downstairs and upstairs AND I did laundry! I haven’t put that laundry away, but I’m not complaining. I’m sure I’ll find time to put it away today this week…most likely.
I finally got a few Colourpop shadows and I totally understand the hype! These shadows are not only so pigmented and buttery (I can’t get over the texture) but they are soooo cheap! $5 for an eye shadow? I can’t even get a drugstore shadow for that cheap, and I hate drugstore eye shadows. I feel a new obsession coming on…
I started putting together book inspired outfits on Polyvore last week again. I used to do these allll the time, then life got crazy last year and I stopped. I forgot how much I missed it.
What are some things that made you happy recently?
