My Happy List #4

I almost feel guilty having a Happy List given the disasters and upheaval many people have endured just this past week.  However, I am happy, I am blessed, and I am thankful.

My Happy List #4 is all about SPRING BREAK.

1.   It is a gorgeous day today, so as we say here in Alabama, it's time to "pull up them pansies."  We will work in our garden today, and get our deck ready for spring.

2.   What would Spring Break be without a good book?  What about a good book that is 30% off?  :D
I can't wait to read Swamplandia.

3.   Debbie over at Debbidoos is hosting a linky party all  about spray paint.  I found two projects to use the pink and straw with, and I just bought the aqua because it is too, too pretty.  I'm sure I'll put it to good use eventually.

4.   You know what makes me happy?  When businesses listen to their customers.  I have been obsessed with Wake Me Up Before You Cocoa Coffee since it came out for a limited time several months ago.  After whining requesting that it be brought back, guess what!?!?  It's baaaaa-aaaaaack!!!! Thanks so much!  I love The Fresh Market!

5.   Giggling teenager BFF's who wake me up.  At 8:30.  On a Saturday morning.  The only morning I can sleep in.  Make.  Me.  Happy.  :/

Please join Mamarazzi for the My Happy List Linky Party @ Dandelion Wishes.  Got to *love* her blog!

Until next time...

  5. What wonderful happy things and people! :))))) I just love positive people and positive posts. With all the sad news in the world, we need a "positive break" from all the concern about the bad and sad things that are happening.

    well, I think that it is okay to be happy, even in the course of all the recent events...positive energy can have an amazing effect on those around you.
    What a great idea, to stop and write down all those things we have to be happy for. Great idea!
