Glass half-full...or 10 things that made me happy this week!

Usually I'm a glass half full kinda person but the past 9 months or so have sometimes made it difficult to see the good things. This week I've made it a mission to seek and find little things that make me smile and or bring me joy. Here they are...

10 things that made me happy this week:
1. Seeing my mom's expression when we surprised her with a 65th birthday party.

2. When Jake brings home empty ziplocs and bottles in his lunchbox because he knows we recycle.

3. Relaxing in a clean house.

4. The warmer weather, even if it was only for a few days.

5. New fun scrappy kit from Studio Calico

6. This hat...

and this vest...

Both of which I bought for Jake!

7. Jake reading a whole Capt. Underpants book while we ran errands. Big accomplishment!

8. This photo...

9. Jake's 100% on his math test

10. Getting new music from I-Tunes

Hmmmm...maybe this will become a weekly post. What made you smile this week?
