Are you a happy person??

Day 100…


Today I came across this picture…it truly made me smile.  Are you a happy person?  Sometimes it is so difficult to be happy in a room full of unhappy people. 
...and this ends the 100 days of happiness blogging. :)

Life Cereal!

Day 99…

Guess what?  I am bringing back Favorite Fridays. 


One of my favorite things to eat is cold cereal.  Lately, I have created so much busyness in my life that I have made it difficult to find time to make dinner each night.  I guess that is one advantage of being single…you do not have to be responsible in the dinner-making area. HA HA So…as of late I have been eating cold cereal for dinner.  Easy Peasy.  One of my most favorite boxes of cold cereal is LIFE.  It is delicious with milk or without.  A handful of LIFE cereal can cure any starving pains

changing it up...

Day 98…


This morning I woke up in one of those moods.  The kind of mood that doesn’t bring a lot of happiness or motivation to do anything nor brings a smile to my heart.  As I sat staring at my computer, I knew that I needed to change my attitude but had no idea how to do.  A thought popped into my head to change my wallpaper on my screen.  So…I started searching the internet and look what I found…


Isn’t that bright and cheery?  Isn’t it awesome to be able to change something minor and it creates a whole new perspective for the day?!

a walk...

Day 94...

I love to go on walks.  I love to be outside.  I love to look at thinks and let my thoughts wander from place to place.  Sometimes I like to go with a friend but most of the time-I love to just go by myself.  It is sort of like a healing place when I am able to be by myself in nature and just think.  What is something that you do in your life to let your mind wander and heal?

Whale Watching...

Day 93…


For some reason today my thoughts turned to an adventure that I went on a very long time ago.  One of my roommates in college was getting married and I decided (along with one of my other roommates) to fly to Portland to witness her wedding.  It was a fun and exciting trip.  While we were there, we decided to go whale watching.  I was so excited.  I had never had this type of adventure before.  We boarded the whale watching boat and I could feel the excitement and the endorphins running throughout my whole system.  I couldn’t wait to see a whale!  Then it happened…


Turning Green.

Throwing up.

Total embarrassment…but thank goodness, another guy on the boat was doing the exact same thing…I wasn’t alone in my misery.

I missed the entire adventure.  I was so sick.  I thought that I was going to pass out.  Depoe Bay will always remind me of this sad little adventure.  BUT…my roommate captured some amazing pictures.  Thank goodness for cameras!!!  J  Oh…how I wanted to see those whales swimming and diving into the ocean. 

Another time.

Another day.

Grateful to be alive!

Today is one of my most favorite holidays!!!  I love the 4th of July.  Balloons…breakfast…shopping…crafts…picnics and fireworks!!! 
As we were waiting to go to the picnic and fireworks, I decided to take pictures of this darling little one.


 Finally....we left and headed to the park.

Day 91: 

I am tired.  I am exhausted.  I just want to curly up and go to sleep but I can’t…it is too early.  So…instead, I am going to eat a Popsicle.  I LOVE Popsicles.  They are just refreshing and delicious. 

Check the freezer.

No popsicles!

Off to the store I go…

Popsicles galore!!!


Want one?!  I will share!!

I love Target!!

Day 90…


Ok…I love Target.  Why?  I am not sure.  That store truly intrigues me.  I rarely purchase anything there but it is my place to go to just wander.  Seriously, I have no idea I love it so much.  I can spend so much time in that store looking at anything and everything.  It makes me giggle to think of the time that I have spent there walking up and down the aisles.  It is so intriguing to me.  I don’t go very often because I end up spending too much time wandering but when I do… I LOVE IT.

Buckets, buckets, and more buckets!!

Day 89…

In less than a month, I will be attending a long week of Young Women’s Camp.  I am excited.  I am nervous.  I cannot wait for this adventure.  Each Tuesday until camp, we will be trying to get things in order and ready for that incredible week.  Tonight, we painted our buckets.  These will be our chairs for our cabins.  I am so excited.   We had so much fun.  I am not sure if it was because of all the fumes from the can or it was because we were enjoying each others company.  I vote that it was the enjoying each other.  J
