Silly happy things

I like to talk about things that make me happy because it makes me happy. It's like a happy cycle. When I need a little pick me up, I just pull one of these out for a quick smile.

Meeting (and re-meeting) bloggers!


Bloglovin seems to have fixed it's shit.


A warm shower after run / walking 13.1 miles and standing outside for over an hour while uber cancels on us and taxis lock their doors.


Basically having my own private yoga class with one teacher (instructor?) for two students. Thanks Alyssa!


Chinese after the above.


Nap after the above.


Pizza after the above.


Staying up till 3am talking. How old are we?


Reading 3 books this weekend. Being in airports and on planes means lots of free time and I breeze through books.


Airports. I love airports. I love people watching and watching the planes take off and land (I think it helps my mini anxiety because they look so smooth and not bumpy and scary at all) and just waiting. I also love rocking chairs.


Europe is less than 3 months away.


I don't fall asleep easily at all unless I am drunk or beyond tired. I was ridiculously tired on Sunday night and I fell asleep within 5 minutes. It's so nice to know what that feels like, even if it is only once a year.


Chips. Chips make me happy.


I would apologise for the buzzfeed-esque post and overuse of gifs, but... gifs make me happy.

Anything make you silly happy recently?

  1. Girl, don't apologize for the gifs! Gifs are so fun! Ugh I wish I could get two naps per day. Especially today, I'm exhausted. And yay for Bloglovin finally getting their act together! I was starting to get uber annoyed with them!

  3. Reading this made me smile so much! I wouldn't have wanted to wait for a ride in the cold or order excessive food to the hotel or stay up until 3am talking with anyone else :) I'm glad you were able to get in some good reading time at the airport. Hope your flight back wasn't too bad!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love GIFs!!! And I feel the same way about getting to meet bloggers in person. Maybe one day that will be us!!! :) Your Europe trip is coming up quick, I bet you are so excited!! And damn girl, three books in one weekend!? That is a lot! People watching is fun, and I find myself doing it everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha gifs make me very happy. Nothing like a search for "cat gif" to make a shitty day much, much better. YES to Chinese and naps and pizza... and pretty much everything else but the yoga (but cheers to a private class!).

    ReplyDelete
  36. gifs are the bestttttttt. I completely understand the inability to fall asleep and I LOVEEE when I wake up in the morning and I'm all, "woah, i don't remember falling asleep!"

    ReplyDelete

  46. That Step-Brothers gif made me especially happy.

    Monday nights are kinda my night to cook - I cook for my guy, my stepson, and my father-in-law. This week, I made something that all complimented me on, and that made me feel appreciated and happy. (Nothing fancy - baked chicken with a homemade bbq sauce, cauliflower casserole, corn, and carrots)

  47. Never apologize for happiness or gifs! This post made me happy :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love your gifs. They are always hilarious. I have the opposite problem I fall asleep in like 5 seconds. It's good if you're ready to go to bed, but not so good if your trying to watch a movie with your husband lol. I just wake up so early and am so busy with the kids I just seem to pass out once I stop moving. lol Maybe working out more regularly would help. xo

  49. I have watched that kitty one like 20 times already! So cute! This post makes me so happy. So glad to hear all these joys in your life ;-) besides the uber cab that is annoying!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I so loving sitting in those rocking chairs watching the planes leave. I could sit there for hours. Never been sorry for being happy. NEVER! The world needs more happy people.

    ReplyDelete
  51. This post makes my day! ha! Love it- especially the step bros reference!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Aww Europe in 3 months!!! I'm jealous :) Glad you had a great trip! I always get a lot of reading done when we fly, it helps make the time pass quicker.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love this post! Do you know what makes me happy? At my wedding I was drinking bud light out of a can and someone said "that's going to show in the pictures!" and I thought of your wedding pictures and was like, you know what? I remember this from Kristen's and she did not care at all and I don't need to care either!

    Happy hump day!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think every single one of these gifs made me laugh- so perfect for each description! Also, I'm impressed you read three books this weekend too?!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I totally agree about a HOT shower after a freezing cold run. Man, that is the best. And 2 naps a day would be amazing. Heck, I'd be happy with one!
    Did you post a race recap yet, or did I just miss it??

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ooh, where are you going in Europe?
    I wish I could take naps at work!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I want to meet some of my blog friends! And Europe would make me happy, too!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Gifs make me happy too (as does most of the things on your list; especially chinese, naps, and pizza... hehehe although I cannot stay up until 3 anymore! If that happens, it's practically a miracle) I was in MTL with my friend last weekend and we legitimately went to bed at like 10pm on Saturday (in MTL, with no boys). Party animals over here.... I'm actually quite embarrassed.

    1. LOL that sentence sounds weird.... with no boys, meaning our boyfriends... meaning girls trip! Sorry, just thought i'd clarify :)

  59. This is such a fun post! Love most of these things too - and yum, now I want Chinese AND pizza. Maybe a Chinese flavored pizza? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  60. All of these things are things that would definitely make me happy too! Especially the chinese food... I'm hungry :) lol. Food and wine are definitely two things that made me silly happy. Oh, and camping. I love camping. :)
