Things that make me stupidly happy

Do you ever just get really happy over silly, small things? Or overly excited about big, awesome things?

I was behind a bus that was going so slow and I couldn't get around him. He changed lanes (no-one's gonna argue with a bus) and I was freeeeee.


Woke up at like 2am the other night (morning?) and realised I had ALL THE TIME left.


When someone uses a word incorrectly but they don't realise and I don't say anything.
note: I do this as well, I'm sure, but it's not funny when I do it.


KC randomly bringing me home an apple juice.


I thought this post would be one that I was just randomly venting and whatever, and it quickly skyrocketed (ok more like top of a tree rocketed) to my most popular post. Blew ma mind.


I can finally breathe out of both nostrils.


KC said no more trips for awhile after Europe, unless it's somewhere like Disney.


When one of my cats allows me to pick them up, pet them or cuddle them without wanting to get down and asfarawayfrommeaspossible immediately.


I found out there is a Lizzie Bennet Diaries special edition of Pride & Prejudice and I got it on sale.


Speaking of P&P stuff, it makes me all giddy like when people who read this small blog are like 'saw this and thought of you!' you thought of me? I mean I know I talk about it a lot, but aw. That makes me feel special and that I probably talk about it too much.

OMG YOU GUYS IT'S THUMBELINA
KC randomly started watching Doctor Who a while back, but he started at Matt Smith and then we watched the newer ones as they came out. Then a few weeks ago he agreed to watch the David Tennant ones with me because duh, #10 is SO the best. And he is loving them.. ok he is tolerating them but I am loving them.


Mummy got me a hand vac for Christmas.


And finally, I get to go to DC in March for the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon with Alyssa, Tracy, Becky and Erin. Don't be jealous.


That gif makes me happy.

Oh and I'm going to NYC in less than 3 weeks. 3 WEEKS!


Anything small or silly lately make you ridiculously happy?

  2. Hahaha I love the one about buses. Whenever that happens I can't help but look over at that car that just tried to whip around me and be like, "Suckahhh!" I tend to get stupidly happy when I remember there is leftover pizza or that one of my favorite shows is on that night. Or every time Aaron says, "Want to drive out to the ocean?" He never wants to do that and I'm always dragging him there or going by myself, so it's nice when it's his idea. I just found out about the Lizzie Bennet diaries so I have a lot of catching up to do.

  5. Being able to breathe from both nostrils is a gift not to be taken lightly! Going to NYC is 3 weeks is something to look forward to, hope you have a blast! That last gif is hilarious! I think I may have the same excited face.

  6. That dancing gif makes me insanely happy as well. I am so pumped for you about your race!!!!! I want to come!!! Realizing you get another 1-2 hours of sleep is the BEST feeling ever! However I judge my life entirely by how many hours of sleep I can get......sleep is my best friend ;)

  8. Waking up in the middle of the night and realizing you have hours of sleep left is the best feeling! And yes to breathing out of both nostrils! I have the WORST allergies so that doesn't happen often!

  12. This is me when I found out my makeup routine takes 5 minutes in the morning! Or that making mocha lattes at home is actually pretty easy. Or when I finally finished Anne of Green Gables. Macklemore and his kitten kill me. It's way too adorable. XO -Alexandra

  13. David Tennant is the BEST!!! I am slowly getting Drake to watch DW, like 1 episode a month. We just watched DT's first episode.

    Christmas is not my favorite holiday of the year. But I am loving my Cmas decorations this year. Every single time I walk into my apartment I smile!

  17. Hahaha all of your gifs make me happy.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Seeing these gifs makes me happy. Especially any gif with Abed in it. Also, when I watch different cartoons and recognize the voice actors immediately. When I have a fridge full of new, unopened food. When my cats talk to me (especially when my girl cat looks at me and does the silent meow -- all the feels). Eating amazing food at a new restaurant. Oh, and squeezing the tummy of the bobby doll I got in Cardiff.

    This post is awesome sauce.

  21. YES! I love waking up, looking at the clock and thinking, "Hell yes, I still have 4 more hours!"

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOL at all of your gifs, and I used to love Thumbelina. :) I get so happy too when I wake up in the middle of the night and realize that I still have like 5 hours of sleep left. So great! Soooo exciting about your NYC trip.

    ReplyDelete

  25. These GIF's were cracking me up! So excited for your NYC trip, I dream of NYC around the Holidays :) One day!

  26. Breathing out of both nostrils is not something to take for granted.

    I get deliriously happy when I wake up in the middle of the night and realize I still have like 6 hours before I have to get up. Best feeling ever.

    I've been wanting to catch up on White Collar but season 5 isn't on Netflix yet. I found it on On Demand. I *might* have done a jig of glee.

  27. I love this post!!! I also went back and read your other most popular post because I am so behind and... well.... you are so right on with your thought process. My ex and I always lived beyond our means and I am paying for it now. If I could go back I would do it so differently. And I get ridiculously happy when I wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning and realize I have all the time left:) Cheers!!!

  28. You have a knack for choosing gifs my friend. Well illustrated! Lol, still smiling.

  29. Oh my word... my husband and I saw a $10 hand vac on sale on Black Friday from Amazon and he insisted we order it! As soon as it arrived in the mail, he ripped open the package and started vacuuming. Who knew they could bring so much joy?! Haha.

    I am jealous of your race... that will be AWESOME!!!
    I so laughed at your being ALIVE breaking through both nostrils. You never know how much you love it until you can't do it anymore. Breathing. It rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Haha this post make me love you even more :D many of these things make me happy as well (except it's nto KC bringing me things or tellin me things, but ya know) Currently the thing that would make me giddily happy is being able to breathe out of both nostrils though, One of my clients came in sick Monday and now I'm sick, bleh :/

    ReplyDelete
  42. I stupid love this post and everything about it! I cannot WAIT until you come to NYC (SO SOON OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!) and am so beyond happy that you're coming to DC now too.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Is there a link to the posts for your Europe trip? I'd like to see that!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love this, and yes, I get stupidly happy at so many little things! It really does not take much to make me happy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. YES!! I love this list. I love being able to breath through both nostrils -so simple yet so satisfying. NYC is a place that is on my list of places to be and it will definitely be cold when you go!

    For some reason I always like to order apple juice on the plane. Otherwise, I don't buy it. Weird.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Haha your apple juice face = my wine face all day long. So true about the dang cats agreeing to not bolt being a huge endorphin boost! OMG traffic and road rage are the worst for me - I usually try to pass the slow person and end up in the slower lane though hah.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Seriously this post all by itself made me ridiculously happy!!

    that is all! hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love this, pretty much any little online purchase makes me ridiculously happy. Like the earrings I just snagged on sale. lol xo

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hahaha I LOVE this post! Such an uplifting and light and funny one to read first thing in the morning! Love that GIF of the little girl doin' her thing!

  50. This entire post makes me smile!!! I'm with you - sometimes it really is the little things like realizing you still have a couple hours left to sleep or reading a really good book!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. If if I hadn't actually read this, it was worth if for the gifs. And I feel like I need to do RnR in DC since all the cool girl bloggers are doing it !!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Haha love this! And I always think of you when I see any P&P related things.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Aww your race is going to be amazing! And yes! I love that feeling waking up and realizing you still have hours before you have to actually get up.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Replace apple juice with chocolate milk and that is me :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. LOLOL at the Addams Family gif. (Is that what that is??) And I'm glad you like it when people think of you when they see P&P stuff. :) Who DOESN'T think of you when they see that stuff? I also love that Princess Bride quote and use it ALL THE TIME. #1 offender word: IRONIC. Thank you, Alanis Morissette.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yay NYC!! That's a good trip to look forward to. I love when Eddie (our cat) is all cuddly, I usually sit still longer just because he is sitting on me. I freaked out over finding this sparkling apple juice that I love the other day when P and I was at the store. The guy at the store laughed at me.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Haha I loved this post. IT made me laugh at work today. I totally get happy about the silliest things!!! Daily!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Haha these are really funny! I loved watching all of these!

  59. Haha the apple juice made me giggle, so random! And I was moving our DVD collection to another room when I came across P&P (I didn't even know I owned that...) and totally thought of you! Haha is that weird?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Haha, a love this post!

    Hot chocolate with marshmallows makes me irrationally happy. And seeing the red pandas on my way to work. And cute puppies looking adoringly at their owners (I need a puppy!!).

  62. SO much happy in this post!! So many of these little things make me happy too- and on some days, all you need is one little thing. So excited you're coming to DC for the half marathon! I already told Tracy and Alyssa, but I will totally come and cheer you guys on :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. So much to be happy about! I can totally relate to the cats trying to get away from you! Except mine are dogs. All the gifs make me happy!
