Things Making Me Happy Right Now

by - 6/09/2018

1. Going outside with Jack. Even though it's wicked hot, he still wants to be out there all the time, and that Vitamin D really does wonders for my mood!
He stood transfixed by this garbage truck for at least 5 minutes.
And then he plopped down in the middle of the sidewalk. Cause, ya know, it's the best place to sit.
2. Hanging out with the fam. I'm so happy we all live so close in this stage of life.
Bombay House in Provo for sister Lex's birthday! SUCH GOOD FOOD.
 3. Reading really excellent books! I just finished a great one (review coming next week), and the one in Jim's hands is definitely on my to-read list. Plus, Jack wanting to sit next to his dad and read with him just about killed me with the cuteness.
These boys reading together in the most sought-after spot in the house: the rocker/recliner in Jack's room.
OTHER HAPPY THINGS THAT DON'T HAVE PHOTOS...
4. This AMAZING BoM study guide. I just barely got it and used it for the first time today, but I'm already so hooked! It's pretty easy for my mind to wander while I read scriptures and I wanted something to help me focus, and this has been perfect! This may be a premature glowing review, but I think it'll be great for me!

5. Silly TV shows. Such as: Smallville - Jim and I watch together almost every night and it's mega-cheesy but also really great. See also: Gilmore Girls and Full House. Still going strong with my same-old Ashleyness. :)

6. Playing the piano! There are times in my life when this definitely is not a happy-list item but the past few weeks I've been doing it a lot more and I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I love it lately! It probably also helps that I just got my piano tuned, haha.

7. Pedicures. About two weeks ago at work, the office manager popped into my office and said, "Hey, I know this is spur of the moment, but we're getting pedicures today at 10! So, be ready!" This was kind of shocking because this sort of thing never happens at my job. But man, it was fun! The boss paid for the 4 gals in the office to get our toenails painted AND bought us lunch, and we all got to stay clocked in, too! I mean, getting paid to get pampered is pretty neat. :)

8. Date nights! There was quite a long time where this just did not happen with Jim and I. I'm not sure why, maybe Jack just got us out of the habit. But now we've been trying to make it a more regular thing and we've been having so much fun! I love spending time doing fun things with my spousal unit. :) 

9. Blogging. One thing on my 101 list is to blog 5 times a week for a month and I'm working on that right now, and it's been so fun for me! Another personal goal I have is to write everyday and this has been helping that along. I'm planning to continue past the month mark, so we'll see how this goes! The ideas have just been flowing and I'm loving this little creative outlet. I've now blogged more in 2018 than I had in the previous 3 years combined, so I'm pretty pleased with myself! Woot.

Well, that's all for today, folks.

Happy Saturday!
