My Happy List


Today is Friday and Fridays make people happy and happy people just don’t shoot their husbands. Thank you, Elle Woods. But anyway, it’s not just Fridays that make me happy, lots of other things make me happy too. Things such as...

I mean obviously. Wine makes everyone happy, and if it doesn’t make you happy, well then, your just not doing life right. Just make sure you don’t drink the cheap walmart crap, as tempting as it may be to save a few bucks you will wake up with the worst headache ever and the only thing to cure said headache is three diet cokes and a chick-fil-a spicy sandwich with fries. Not that I speak from experience or anything.
It seems like everyone and their mothers are prego these days and I would be lying if I said that I didn’t like it. I’m ready for a few of these ladies to formally announce their pregnancies so I don’t have to worry about spilling the beans any longer. I cried yesterday when I received not one ultrasound picture, but two of them from a couple of the most precious friends I know. I can't wait to meet their little munchkins! Sidenote: when the hells bells did all my friends grow up and start getting married and having babies? Craziness! 

Road Trips.
They are fun. They are exhausting. Steven and I are heading out on our fourth weekend road trip in a row this afternoon. Yes, our fourth trip in a row. We are leaving today to spend the weekend in Arkansas with his extended family and celebrate his grandfather’s birthday. I’m so excited to meet the rest of Steven’s family!
A clean house.
I mean I can only imagine that this would make me happy. My house hasn’t passed my idea of “clean” since the day we moved in over a month ago. I’m literally cringing right now at the thought of it. Sure the floors are swept and the bed is made (on a good day), but there are still boxes in the dining room, pictures on the floor, and two rooms yet to even be touched. Oh, and don’t forget about the two overflowing laundry hampers sitting next to the washing machine. #stressedtothemax

Fall clothes.
Boots, scarves, leggings. Those words are literally music to my ears right now. Sure, it’s still hitting around 90 degrees here in Alabama, but it’s only a matter of time until I say screw the weather and bring on the boots! Come October 1st, I will be wearing boots and leggings no matter what the thermostat outside reads. Mark my words.
College (and pro) football.
Alabama plays their home opener this weekend (you know, now that half the season has already passed) against Colorado State. Not necessarily a big game (don’t tell Coach Saban I just said that. All games are big games) but it is a game. Have I mentioned how much I am in love with football season? Once or twice so far this year maybe?
Wedding Planning.
Sure, it can be stressful at times, but the fun definitely outweighs the stress. This is probably because I have the most amazing wedding coordinator and mother to ever grace the earth, but still. I mean really though, there is no way in hell I would be able to do all this wedding stuff on my own. They are also the reason I am not and will not be classified as a "bridezilla." 
My Puppies.
Some mornings, actually pretty much all mornings, I fight a battle with myself to get out of bed and go to work when really all I want to do is lounge around the house and cuddle with my fur monsters. Especially seeing as how much Steven and I have been out of town lately.
The fiancé.
What? You didn’t think I was really going to leave him off my happy list did you? He is pretty much the definition of my happy list. Enough said.
