About "My Happy List" and an Invitation

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Good morning!  I hope your week has started off well.   I would have posted earlier, but I had to visit the doctor this morning for some epinephrine due to hives.  With all the meds and antihistamines I've had this morning, I'm going to bed.  I'll catch-up with y'all tomorrow.

I wanted to share with you a little bit about My Happy List.  My Happy List is a weekly link party where you link-up something that's making you happy this week.  You can write your post however you want.  You don't have to literally write a list like I do.  Instead, you can write a post in your own style and link-up.  Just make sure it's an appropriate post that is positive!  I invite all of you to participate and share your happy!

My Happy List

1.   If you need a guilt-free treat, I have a great idea!  I love key lime pie, but not the calories. Pinkberry has the best yogurt on the planet, and you can have "key lime pie" @ Pinkberry!  :D Healthy snacks make me very happy!  

Pinkberry key lime yogurt with honey tastes just like Key Lime Pie!  You can even ask for whipped cream to go on top.  Yum!

2.   I will be painting a lot this week.  So happy!  I'm attending a workshop with some art friends, and it should be lots of fun.  

I really want to try these new Vernet oils by Holbein.

3.   So happy it's April!  I love spring, and I'm ready for longer and warmer days.  :D

I enjoy walking around the lake in our neighborhood.

I'm happy you're visiting with me today.  Please link-up your happy!

  7. I don't know what I was thinking. I have read your Happy List posts before, and love them by the way, but didn't know you were the hostess...What a flake I am...I'm not ready with a post today but will definitely have to join in next week. Hope you had a wonderful Easter Ricki Jill.


  8. Feel better soon love! Yay for painting and that yogurt looks so good!

  9. I've never been to Pinkberry might have to stop there this afternoon. Great happy list. HOpefully I'll have time to pull one together.


  10. Boo for allergies and hives. :(
    I hope you feel better soon!
    But yay for more painting, and key lime pie (by the by, I have the easiest recipe in the world for amazing Key Lime Pie), and for frozen yogurt. Ah, I need some froyo now! :D

  11. Ick, hives! I had them for 6 weeks years ago with no clue why (obviously, or I wouldve stopped doing/eating whatever it was)...hope you know what it was!

  12. Hope you get feeling better.
    Thanks you for hosting.
    And I can see why a stroll thru the neighborhood would make anyone Happy!Love the lake view.

    Love you friend,be blessed!

  13. Oh, it’s terrible allergy season and the pollen is so thick here. I’m sure it’s off the chart! Hope you are feeling better soon. Love where you walk and I love key lime anything........

  14. A happy list sounds like a great idea. I love key lime cheesecake. Does it taste like that? ;)

  15. what a wonderful happy list

  16. Oh no....I have a feeling that Pinkberry is only in the USA!!!

  17. I'm happy you reminded me about the Happy List. I always forget to write one even though I enjoy yours every week. I'll work one right now.

    p.s. I hope you are feeling better soon. Lots of rest, girl ... and key lime pie.

  18. Hope you get some relief and feel better soon. Wish I had one of those key lime goodies and a walk around your neighborhood lake. Both would make me happy.

  19. Hope you are better by now!

    Pinkberry!?! wish we had Pinkberry in Belgium I could so do with a guilt-free treat! In fact I don't think I've ever seen a frozen yogurt shop here.

    O and do enjoy the art workshop!

  20. Hi Ricki Jill~ Feel better! I'm glad April is here even if it's the beginning of allergy season for all of us in our house including the dogs :) It never occurred to me to link up a post in a different format, hope to join you!

  21. Oh no ..nothing worse than hives. Feel better soon and we will look forward to seeing your painting!
