My Happy List: Keeping the "Fun" in "Functions"


Photobucket



It has been a busy past couple of weeks doing fun things.  Fun functions make me so happy!

My Happy List

1.   First Friday Opening Receptions at Artists Incorporated are fun occasions for date night. This past Friday was the opening reception for five artists, and one of the artists is Carolynn Thomas Jones, a fellow Village Painter. Opening art show receptions make me very happy!  Below is one of Carolynn's paintings currently showing at Artists Incorporated.

2.   This past weekend was Parents' Weekend at our daughter's sorority.  My daughter and her friends are the cutest group, and spending time at the DZ house with my daughter makes me a very happy mom!   


3.   Tomorrow, I will be going on a field trip to the Chelsea Antiques Mall with my sorority. Then we are having a light lunch at a local tea room.  Field trips with my sorority sisters make me very happy!  I will post photos later in the week.


Are you attending any functions this week?  I hope they are making you happy!  Join Mamarazzi at Dandelion Wishes, and share your happy!


Until next time...

Blessings!

Softball & baseball games are about the only functions I'll be attending this week. (It's that time of year!)

Enjoy our field trip today! It sounds like it'll be a great time.

Good Morning Ricki,
It's SO SWEET to see you smiling so early in the week. Being happy "WITH" our children is always "The TOP of the LIST of HAPPY"! and your show must have been so much fun. The painting you feature here is incredibly realistic. The artist is quite talented...
Have LOTS of fun at the Antique Mall(wish I was going with you)! AND be sure to take LOTS of pictures to share with us...
Big Hugs to you,
Donna

No, not attending any functions this week...But I am getting ready for a brunchen I am throwing for my mom to celebrate her birthday. Celebrating my mom's birthday in the company of the rest of my family makes me happy. Thanks for sharing RJ.

I never joined any sorority or organization back in my college days. Whenever I hear reunions and simple get togethers among past college friends, I really regret that I haven't tried. Have fun in your trip and please blog about the experience :)

Your happy list sounds like lots of fun. Topping my list of recent past activities include cleaning up the veranda and my urns, getting ready to add summer flowers. I love spending time in this space, it makes me happy.

Hugs,
Emily
