69 Things that Make me Happy!

Over a year ago, I started this post about 101 things I love. I stopped at #69 and in proper A.D.D. fashion, I got sidetracked and completely forgot about it. SO, here for you today… 

69 Things that make me happy!

  1. Chocolate: I LERV chocolate! It’s my favorite tooth rotter on the planet!
  2. Coffee: I just don’t live without coffee! Add chocolate to it and I am in heaven!

  8. Presents! Yes, all the boxes and bags in this picture are presents… and the kid… that was my Valentines Day present!
  9. Christmas presents arrived!

  10. SNOW! I know a lot of people say that it’s a four letter word… Well it is. But I still love it and I don’t get my mouth washed out with soap when I say it… except at Nikky’s house.

  12. Getting fit and healthy! Those orange highlighter marks are my weight loss in inches on various parts of my body. I haven’t done the highlighting measure in a while, I should do that again!
  13. Inches Lost 25 March 2010

  14. National Geographic Magazine. I love them so much. My friend gave me a bunch to sell. But I have a problem doing that. No one can pry them from my white knuckled fingers.

  20. Damn. It’s my favorite cuss word.

  22. Traveling. If I had an endless supply of money, I would have a really cool RV and you’d never see me or my kids again. Well, I’d blog a ton, but you wouldn’t see much of me. I tend to get a wild hair and I’M OFF!!!

  24. Taking pictures of everyone I drive to the emergency room or a doctors appointment. It’s a sick obsession, I know. It’s a lot of fun for me, but paybacks are a bitch!

  26. Doodling with henna! It’s like a tattoo that goes away after a few weeks.

  34. Trees. I just want to run up and hug one! Without trees, the land just seems naked.

  54. Stumbling across cute kids and cats together. It’s better than running into a room of a screaming kid and finding the cat attacking them LOL.

  94. Old books. I have something about them that make me love them. Maybe it’s the smell. Maybe it’s the old look or the thought that many people may have handled this book centuries before I was born… I just love them!

  103. My TENS unit. There is nothing quite like hooking myself up to the TENS unit and zapping my pain away for a little bit. Or at least taking the edge off the pain.

  105. Flip Flops! It’s like being barefoot but not quite.

  117. Those “you had to be there” moments with friends. When you are sharing a hilarious story with someone and you are laughing so hard you nearly pass out while everyone is staring blankly at you with a raised brow… oh yea! That is what i am talking about!

  123. Penn and Teller. So this is the crappiest picture of me EVER but I was thrilled to get to watch them in person. They have humor AND the best illusionist tricks EVER! In fact they inspired my 11th grade science project of the glowing pickle apparatus! I got and A. 🙂   
  124. Rest Areas. When traveling, these are the best places to stop and sometimes become our overnight sleep spot. The truckers are usually really cool!

I am that crazy lady that lives in the bell tower with all the bats. I keep blogging to keep what little sanity I have left.

    Oh My God! You had your picture taken with Teller! I LURVE Penn and Teller.

    Great list, though if I had to write down which ones I agree with and why, my comment would be longer than your entire post. 🙂

    Hi right back at ya!

  2. LMAO! It was so awesome! I got to see them in Las Vegas live. It was way better than I ever dreamed it could be! They are AWESOME!
