It’s been awhile since I’ve updated, but I’ve had a lot to be happy about recently, so I thought it would be fitting to come back with the next installation to my Happy List. If you don’t know what my Happy List is, it’s an idea that originated over at 43 Things. I’m listing 100 Things that make me Happy.

16. Christmas tree hunting
17. going to trivia night with friends and consistently winning the losers’ consolation prize
18. talented doctors, surgeons, and health care professionals who caught my Mom’s breast cancer early and are helping her get through this experience
19. a large network of loving, supportive, and positive friends and family
20. a sister who can cook a kick-ass turkey. bergok!

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…


1. picking fruit
2. finding pictures in the clouds
3. people watching/eavesdropping
4. listening to the rain
5. making lists
