Ten happy moments of the week

In this new series, I'm going to make a point of highlighting ten happy moments of each week. I think it's the perfect way to kick off the weekend with some positive thinking and reflect on the good stuff that's happened in the midst of work and the day-to-day hustle and bustle. Yay for happy moments!

In the interest of full disclosure, I totally stole this idea from the blog, Cider with Rosie. 

1. Hello fall, I love you so much. Thanks for allowing me to sleep comfortably without air conditioning or heat. Also, thank you for letting me bust out a few fun scarves and some tall boots. You really made my week. 

2. The discovery that if you have vanilla ice cream and you put in a drop or two of coffee extract, you make coffee ice cream! Yums. I bet this would work with any extract flavor... I'm trying mint next. 

3. Pre-planned dinners like chicken and pineapple fried rice and sweet potato soup equal leftovers for lunch and very little money spent on food during the week. 

4. Meeting a really cool guy at a work event that started the company Jim's Jarhead Jerky 

5. Front row parking at the train station when you're running late for the train.

6. Sunday football and Breaking Bad viewing parties with great friends. 

7. Figuring out how to make my own gifs! Check out my first one... there will definitely be more to come!

8. Finishing the book, When I Found You by Catherine Ryan Hyde - I was tearing up on the train it was so good! 

9. My first Pumpkin Spice Latte (or PSL as they're calling it these days) of the season - what is it with chicks and pumpkin stuff?!?

10. New shoes. I purchased a couple of items that were on my fall fashion wish list

Happy Friday lovers! 

What happy moments did you have this week? What are you looking forward to this weekend? 


  1. I love this Mariss!. I feel like I have been unnecessarily grumpy this week and can think of plenty of "reasons" why... But you're making me think of happy moments:) Football, Catchphrase, I am catching up on 5 seasons of breaking bad so I won't have questions on Sunday... new flannel sheets, gumbo, an impromptu happy hour Wed, 20 75# C&J in a 1:03...

    1. Yay!! So glad to hear you had some happy moments too :) I figured after my depressing post last week about a bad week that I need to make an effort to put lots of positive things on the blog too (it's all about balance.) I think doing this weekly will help me remember the good stuff that happened during the week and not just the frustrating or upsetting stuff.

  2. It's so refreshing to hear someone talk about the good things in their life for once. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm going to need to get some coffee extract!
