32 things that make me happy

by Kim on April 11, 2014

Happy Friday!

So Erin and Sarah are challenging bloggers to post lists of 32 things that make them happy.

When I randomly stumbled across Erin’s post, I was on board immediately. Not only do I love simple, happy post ideas–especially on Fridays–but it was a great excuse to dig through old pics and think about all the things that, well, make me happy.


I highly recommend it.

Here’s my list:

1. These boys




3. Christmas

4. Froyo


5. Cabins on lakes

6. Wineries


Trying to pose with a grapevine is harder than you might think. Just FYI.

7. The first outdoor spring run

8. Deliveries from The Loft (well, deliveries from anywhere)


9. Cozy slippers

10. Extra juicy summer watermelon


11. A streak of green lights

12. Tall boots


13. Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter (obv)

Bonus thing: using dumb abrevs in front of my husband (I know he cringed so hard at #13).

…Except for “tots.” I hate that one.

14. Summer fires in the backyard


15. When an awesome movie is randomly on TV, and I’m obligated to drop everything and watch it

16. Chocolate. Duh.


17. The farmer’s market


18. The color pink

19. Grilling (technically…the results of my husband’s grilling)


20. Friends and blends


21. Childbirth
Then 1

22. A great outfit day

23. Craft beer


24. Yoga

25. Camping


26. Summer salads


27. Lazy Saturday mornings

28. Flip-flops (especially when combined with BEACHES)


29. Boats (someday, I WILL own one)

30. Flowers. All of them.


31. A perfectly cooked, medium rare steak

32. Peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwiches


(Can you tell I’m excited for summer? And that I really like food?)

Oh and it’s actually spooky how much we have in common! Many of those would also be on my list :-)

Love this idea and will definitely be stealing it :-) I have to say one thing I miss about not eating bread is a slice of toast with almond butter, honey and banana. Nothing better!
