happiness is...

happiness is, happiness is,
different things to different people!
that's what happiness is.

(yes, i stole that from a camp song, and no, i'm not embarrassed.)

these are a few things that happiness is to me...
  • eating too much at a hibachi restaurant
  • truly surprising someone you love
  • enjoying a nice dinner with coworkers
  • reading through a sky mall magazine 
  • (& laughing hysterically at all the ridiculous things they sell!)
  • realizing it's 5:30 on a weekday and turning off my computer
  • watching LOST with my family
  • sleeping in on the weekends
  • eating delicious cookies even though i know i shouldn't
  • changing into comfy clothes (hello, nike shorts...)
  • walking on the beach - preferably w/ andrew ;)
  • & finding a blog that inspires me
...what is happiness to you???

  3. oh, girl! you stole my heart when I realized that I'm not the only one who reads through the Sky Mall Magazines! :) My hubby makes fun of me for it, but there is some really great Shiz in there! LOL! Glad to meet ya! I'm a new fan from the Tuesday blog hop! Just love your little blog design and your topic today. I would say that happiness for me is all of the above, including: the moment every day when you get to take off that pesky bra, midnight runs to Taco Bell, traveling to some place exotic, and the smell of a crackling fireplace around Christmas. Oh, and twinkies. Dang hostess for ending an era of happiness for me. :) Happy Tuesday new amiga!

  4. Hey Emma,
    Came across your blog from the Tell Me About it Tuesday link up today and I am so glad I did. I can relate to many of your happiness is items, but my favorite is 'realizing it's 5:30 on a weekday and turning off my computer.' That is the best! Have a great week!
