It seems there have been a lot of posts lately about things that annoy us. While those are highly entertaining, I thought we could start the weekend on a positive note and share little things that make us ridiculously happy.
I. LOVE. when I hear my favorite song on the radio when I’m in the car on my way to work. Especially when it’s one of my “guilty pleasure” songs that I don’t always admit to loving in real life. (ahem…anything by One Direction?)
What small thing makes you gleefully happy?

Chipotle burritos. Seriously — they can drag me out of any bad mood ever. I think a nuclear strike could kill everyone I know and love, but if I could get my hands on some Chipotle, I’d be like “hey, sh*t happens and life goes on. Man this is a good burrito!”

@LovesToPlan: Right now it is Starbuck’s Refreshers. I am entirely too in love with those things!

My cats meowing and rubbing my legs for some cuddling time. Seriously I just melt eveytime they come to me and bump my leg for some “rub my belly time”

There are a ton of foods I could list (bagels, ice cream, anything bad for you), the Olympics song!, when my cat does something goofy, happy hour.

My pets being cute. I have *literally* thousands of photos on my phone of them sleeping or being cute because it never gets old.
Also, movie nights in with my husband. Last October we did scary movie fridays where ever Friday night we would pick 2 horror movies, order a pizza, and pig out on pizza and popcorn and coke (exciting for me bc i dont let myself drink much pop) and watch horror movies with the lights off. Seriously the best thing ever.

The way my dog rolls onto his back and bends one front leg and sticks the other straight out – it kind of looks like he’s raising his hand for a question. But we call it his Solid Gold Dancer pose. It’s hilarious.
Also, anything in miniature. I have no idea why. I bought some tiny, fingerling eggplants at the farmer’s market the other day. Darling Husband doesn’t even eat eggplant. But I couldn’t resist them.

The small thing that makes me very happy is the Keurig K-Cup machine at work. I like the Dark Magic K-cups. I am getting another one right now!

When my fiance and I were first dating in a LDR, he was on a very very tight budget and didn’t have a lot of money to spoil me. He picked me up at the airport one hot summer night and when we got to his apartment, he surprised me with Ben & Jerrys Chunky Monkey, my favorite flavor. I asked him how he knew that was my favorited and he replied “well you said it was, that night when we were in the Rite-Aid…”
“That night when we were in the Rite-Aid” had been probably 5 months earlier and I didn’t even really remember it so I was floored that he not only noticed, but remembered and bought the ice cream, for me, even though with his finances back then, it meant he’d be eating rice and beans all week for dinner.
That was seriously a (((swoon))) moment and it still makes me giggle when I think about it!
