10 Little Happy Moments

May 13, 2013

i haven't been doing the entire blog every day in may challenge.  (because whaaat contain a description of myself to 250 words?  i can't, i'm too fabulous.)  but i have been picking and choosing a few that fit what i want to write for the day any way.  today's topic happens to be "10 things that make you really happy" so i decided to give you my 10 little life wins - those little moments in life where things are just going your way.


thinking tonight's episode is the last of the season of your favorite tv show, but finding out there's actually a two hour finale next week.  or a reunion special.

waking up without a hangover despite the 15 hours of drinking you did the day before.

getting two for one in a vending machine.  ya know, something is hanging off and you buy what's behind it or next to it and you end up getting both treats.

changing the radio station in perfect timing to hear your favorite song start.

getting comped something without acting like a brat.  if they completely got an order wrong or reservation wrong, etc., when some nice manager gives you a comp or heck even a free bottle of champagne (that happened at the derby, they got our room wrong but fixed it and gave us champagne!) and you didn't act like a spoiled child to get it.

deciding to buy something or heading to the store to pick up something you really need, and then once you get there finding out it's on sale.

finding an a wireless network without a password when you're out in public and trying to get your phone to connect to the internet.

actually winning a carnival game.  any carnival game.  (want to know which one i always win?  the ladder climbing one.  yep, i rock.  also my dad just paid a guy who ran the game to teach me once, because he got so tired of standing there while i tried it over and over.)

finding a full television series you've never seen before on netflix, and really enjoying it.

and my personal favorite little happy moment - the moment when you are actually able to finish a tube of chap stick because you haven't lost it.




what little moments make you happy?

oh and 1 more because i hate following rules.  the moment one of your real life friends texts you and says they love your blog.  thanks sarah.

  1. I was with you until the last one... that has never happened... ever.
    But the rest? so much yes. I got something straight up free from the vending machine the other day, I saw it dangling, so I kicked the shit out of the machine til I was munchin' a free snickers.

  4. I have never experienced that lip balm moment.

    I love having a new recipe turn out perfectly, finding something perfect after a long search, and having plans get cancelled so I have nothing to do on a weekend.

  5. I have about 10 tubes of carmex and I can't keep up with any of them. I'd love it if that 10 was an exaggeration but honestly its probably a very conservative number.

    1. You are not alone! I try to keep them everywhere but somehow they just disappear. Like dark magic.

  9. Those are fabulous happy moments, I'd imagine a few of those would be on my list, if I were to come up with a similar list. I've got to say the last one is the best. Because seriously, how often do you not loose every tube of chapstick you've ever bought!?!

  18. Hahaha these are perfect. I finished my first tube of chapstick over Christmas this past year and it's probably sad just how excited I was about that.

  19. No one loses Chapstick more than me! I had a real life girlfriend tell me how much she loves my blog and you're right, that is a fun little win.

  20. YES YES YES to the chapstick. I feel like such a winner. Also a life win: managing to make more than one (or even just one) side dish to go with your dinner. It makes me feel very adult.

  26. This list rocks. My faves are: waking up w/out a hangover after massive alcohol. I mean, how does that even happen?! 2 for 1 in the vending machine - I'm all about more bang for my buck! And, finishing a chapstick tube. Makes me feel SO accomplished in life.

  27. the chapstick OH THE CHAPSTICK.
    and why is it that when in reality we all have like a thousand of them but you can only ever find just one?
