Happiness Is...{3.26.15}

Good Morning Peachies! It's finally the most glorious day of the week, Saturday.
I'm sure you're sitting there reading this snuggled in your favorite blanket, drinking a good cup of coffee.
If not then go grab your favorite blanket and fill your favorite mug with some delicious hot coffee.
Then join me for a post filled with things that made me happy this week.
{I'll wait while you make your coffee and get snuggled in.}

I just love lazy Saturday mornings. There's something so relaxing about having no real plans to get out of my pajamas anytime soon that makes me feel refreshed and happy. When I was a kid it was all about running downstairs with my brothers on Saturdays to watch an hour or two of cartoons. That was what made Saturdays the best. Now it's coming downstairs with my hubby and puppy, snuggling on the couch, blogging and drinking coffee made by my hubby that makes Saturdays the best. These are my happiest mornings.

Want to know what else made me happy this week?

This link up with Krysten.

You can check out her awesome blog here.

Here's how the link up works (as written by these lovely ladies).
Friday Link Up Hosts: Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird and Lindsay @ The Flynnigans

Take the button when you're posting your link up. We will be switching up Buttons every few months to change things up a bit.
Don't forget to leave your link to your post. Be kind and visit some other links - show them some love.
Lastly, and most important: What makes YOU happy is entirely up to you, so when you write your post, run with it. Write about what made you happy this week, or what you were grateful for.
Link-Ups on Krysten's and I blogs will be open on Friday mornings at 6 am and will be up until Tuesday, March 15 at Midnight. Remember, have fun and stop by every Friday to check out the ushe. ;)

I love reserving Saturday for this link up. It's the perfect way to reflect back on the week and be happy for the small things.

Here's what else made me happy this week...

+The beautiful flowers that are beginning to bloom everywhere.

Hello Spring. #lesliesgirlythings #lesliesbeautifullife #abmlifeiscolorful #springhassprung

+ My hubby helping me get our bedroom cleaned back up.
It looked like a tornado hit.
There were piles of clothes everywhere.
The dresser couldn't even be seen.
There was about an inch of dust piled up.
Shoes on top of the dog crate.
It was my own nightmare but together we tackled it last night and I slept so much better.

+Coming home to the sweetest gift on my door step from my neighbor for helping her make a pair of ear rings for her friend.

+ Knowing I'm sharing this crazy life with my husband. This week we've learned that puppies get mites and what to do if your puppy eats a Therma Care heating wrap. We also laughed until we almost cried at Willow's attempt to protect us from the cell phone at 4:30 yesterday morning.

+Celebrating National Puppy Day with our Wild Child.

Happy National Puppy Day from Willow. #nationalpuppyday #willowsoto #willowthemastiff

+Not shopping this week. It's been Heavenly! We're trying to save money right now and somehow i'm loving it.
I don't have a ton of errands to run everyday and I'm getting to stay home and focus more on my blogging.
I'm not joking, it is pretty Heavenly.

+Getting so much love and so many comments on this post.

Aloha from Hawaii

+All the blog groups I belong to. The women in these groups are incredible.
I love the community-it's like having your own personal cheerleaders in the game of life.
There's no drama and everyone truly wants everyone else to succeed.

+Spending time outside with Willow, reading the Whole 30.

This quote from the book speaks to my soul and gets me fired up.
"Our relationship with food is an emotional one. Food is our comfort, our reward, a trusted friend, a mother's love. You've got food habits, traditions, and associations that go back to childhood. You can't imagine how you would live (happily) without certain foods in your life. And we're asking you to give up those foods for an entire month.

+Enjoying some quiet time with my rowdy girl.

Berry Smoothie Recipe
1 Cup Vanilla Yogurt
1 Hand full Berries of your choice
1 Hand full Spinach
1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Local Local Honey
1 Cup Ice
Blend it all together in your blender/Ninja/NutriBullet and enjoy!
These are my favorite "go to" smoothies.
I've been enjoying one every day for breakfast or lunch and they are so incredibly
yummy and easy to make.

  1. The sunshine wherever you are looks glorious and I'm envious of you sitting outside reading a book. :)
    I'm been loading around on the couch since Thursday night after getting rear ended at a stop light.
    Check back in on my blog or krysten's blog, the rules have changed from two weeks ago and we have a third host in on the link up now, I guess this is the second week. Oh and a new spring button. :)
    Have a great remainder of Saturday and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    1. Thank You Lindsay! I'm so sorry I missed the new rules. I'll definitely check on them and follow next week! :) I'm so sorry you got rear ended! That's never fun. I hope you feel better soon. The sunshine was glorious (I'm in Georgia) but today the rain has caught up with us today but i'm enjoying a cozy day at home with my hubby, son, and our Willow pup.
      Have an amazing weekend


Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love. Have a peachy day.
