What Makes Me Happy

Heather writes one of my fav blogs...and whilst catching up on my reading tonight I came across her post about what makes her happy and I just had to share my list as well!!!!!

So here is my list of 25 random things that make me happy.

1. Watching Hunter and Cierra watch a dancing show and dancing along with the dancers in front of the TV. (sorry for the over usage of the words dancing and watching)
2. Cooking for my parents.
3. Tweaking a recipe and making it better than the original.
4. Ryland's smile...she smiles with her whole face and she looks just like me as a baby.
5. Walking out my front door to see mountains.
6. When I tell Kevin I want to drive up a mountain and he finds a road.
7. Having spent the last year attending a church that I miss.
8. Listening to music with Hunter. He always surprises me at how many lyrics he knows.
9. Trees with leaves that have changed to fall colors.
10. Cierra's curly hair.
11. A new season of Survivor.
12. Burts Bees chapstick.
13. Watching Ryland smile at her brother and sister.
14. Seeing how proud Hunter and Cierra are to be a big brother and sister.
15. Having the relationship with my parents that I've always wanted.
16. Wine.
17. Being proud of the person that I am...even though I'm not at all who I thought I'd be.
18. Good hair days.
19. Festivals.
20. Grocery shopping.
21. Re-runs of Will & Grace. I forgot how hilarious Jack & Karen were.
22. Memories of summers with my grandparents on their farm in North Dakota and knowing that my brother has all the same memories.
23. Being in the same room with Kevin and all three of my kids . Since it happens so rarely it's something I've grown to REALLY appreciate. I hope everyone who has the ability to be with their whole family at the same time can appreciate what a gift that is.
24. Girlfriends.
25. My bed. There's nothing like your own bed!

Your turn!!!!!
