So, I have an account on 43things.com, which is basically a place where you list 43 things you want to do in your lifetime. I’m not sure why it’s 43 things. For example, I only have 37 things at the moment. One of them is to “Identify 100 things that make me happy (besides money).”  You’d think that’d be easy, right? But there are so many little things, that the idea of picking only 100 is actually daunting to me! Then I found the happy lists over at The Rockstar Diaries blog. There, readers submit lists of 10 little things that make them happy–just 10!  I figured, hey! I can do that!  So I’m starting a series of 5 things at a time that make me “Soooo happy,” (Roman Holiday? Anyone?) accompanied by a photo of mine, until i can cross this off my 43things list! And hopefully I’ll have plenty more things to be happy about and will continue the series even after I list 100 things.

So without further ado…
