My Happy List: Summertime Randomness




Photobucket



I am so happy this week!  Summer is in full swing, and I couldn't be happier.

My Happy List

1.   Shelley finally tried skiing after years of knee boarding, wake boarding, and wake skating. Look at those long legs!  :D  Seeing Shelley enjoying her summer makes me so happy!

2.   Summertime movies are usually the best of the year, and I am so happy about the release of Brave.  Movies make me happy!






3.   I am also happy about the Smashing Summer party with Miss Angie. Smashing Smash Journals makes me so happy!  Are you playing along with us?  Grab the button on my sidebar and join-in on the fun!  :D

New book releases make me happy!


5.   Speaking of reading, my Literary Friday posts are now link parties.  Sorry I got last Friday's link party up so late, but we were traveling.  However, your participation made me so happy on June 8th!  Please continue to share your book love here every Friday!









What's making you happy this week?

Until next time...

Blessings!

  8. My garden has been making me happy lately. Lilies are in bloom. The lack of rain has not been making me happy, but can't have everything! Shelley looks like she is having so much fun.

  16. Hi Ricki Jill,
    Shelley looks like she's having a blast. The water is a must for all the kids in the summer. I have always wanted to try water skiing, but never did. Thanks for the movie suggestion, Brave. I hope your summer is off to a good start. I really like your new Header.

  18. How fun. I do love summer for the joy it brings young people and the mood of everyone. I could probably do without extreme temperatures but (knock wood) it's been very cool so far.
    Love your happy list.

  20. Shelley looks like she is a pro at this..what fun! I do have that smash album and should do something with it! Maybe now that the temps are so hot and I'm in with the cool air, it would be the perfect time to get started..thanks for the inspiration..(yes, those are long legs..nice to be tall too!)

    And the SmashJournal party is such fun! I've already got mine, and colored the front page, and am gathering a mental list of trinkets I'll keep from my planned summer adventures. Yay! Great idea!
