It's the little things

Here are the things that are making me happy lately:
The other day I mentioned how I was ready for fall and taking the steps towards it by doing all the things that reminded me of my favorite season. One of those things was watching my Peanuts DVDs. It rained overnight and we woke up to 77 degree cloudy weather. It was amazing! I didn't think we'd ever get a break from our 110 degree days. I bought a chai tea latte (one of my favorite fall drinks) in celebration of the cool, fall-like day. 
That evening husband also learned Charlie Brown Theme (not to be confused with the popular peanuts song Linus and Lucy) for me! I've mentioned this before but I LOVE LOVE LOVE that husband fills our home with music. 
I felt my ringtone needed a little updating so I went with Dave Brubeck's 
Take Five!

Husband is on here twice because he's awesome. I wanted to share this creepy face photo because it reminds me how lucky I am to have married my best friend! We were out eating dinner and he made this face and stared at me, so when I looked over at him it scared me and I screamed. That's right. I screamed out loud in the restaurant! I buried my face in my hands and laughed so hard I cried. It was kind of an embarrassing moment for me but it made me so happy that I have a husband that keeps me smiling and laughing. 
The other night I had a dream about chocolate covered gummy bears and I haven't been able to get them out of my mind! So yesterday, I made my dreams come true and made some. A ladies gotta do what a ladies gotta do. 

What's making you happy lately?

  7. Mmm, chai tea in the fall is the best! I'm glad you got a break from the heat. I also heart Charlie Brown specials. I had a Snoopy when I was little that never left my side. :)

    1. The gummy bears were amazing!
      They sell them at a candy store here but we were broke and decided making our own would be just as good. And luckily they were!!
