So, this is just something I think about…maybe I’m just being philosophical because I’m bored out of my skull at work. Who knows?
What has been the happiest time in your life NOT INCLUDING your engagement or wedding??
I don’t want to speak for everyone, but I have a theory that sometimes we bees get a little caught up in our wedding plans (duh). So, I want everyone to remember what else in their lives has made them the person they are today.
And if you don’t mind, share them with the rest of us! I always love hearing about other people’s happiness and fond memories.

Honestly right now i am the happiest i have ever been. Our weddings in 7 weeks, were almost done renovating our house so we can list it and buy one closer to our parents, we are planning a honeymoon and also going to be TTC. So many great things are happening right now.

I don’t know if I can pick just one!
Last may, I graduated with a french major and english minor and a degree in French education. I beamed as I walked across the stage to receive my diploma.
Last July, I walked into a middle school with a resume, and walked out as a full time teacher…they hired me on the spot! I litteraly danced to my car to call Fiance (then boyfriend) and my parents.
My mother has had cancer since I was 16 and each time they successfully remove a tumor, I feel like she has been given another chance. I get so happy that I bawl, every, single, time.
Our first night in our new apartment- so happy and carefree…. definitely not many other moments that compare
There are tons more…. the wedding will just be the icing on the cake!

I have so many to choose from…
When I found out I was pregnant with both of my kids.
When my kids were born.
When my FI(then boyfriend) was put in remission from his cancer.
When I graduated high school.
My Fiance and my date night at Disney.
so many more…

When I found out that even though I had cancer, I would still be able to have children. It changed my whole plan for life.

@roxy_angell13: That’s wonderful! Mr. Cajun and I built a new house this summer. I know how exciting it is to have something like that to share. Good luck renovating, and I hope y’all find a wonderful new home!
@Mrs.H2B: Well congratulations on your graduation, new job, and your mother. I know the last one is especially rewarding. FH’s mother had breast cancer for 2 years. Now, she’s healthy and happy again. I remember feeling so blessed to see and be apart of her recovery. I can’t even imagine if it were my own mother. You’re obviously a very strong girl!

Aside from all the engagement/moving in together things of recently, the happiest I’ve been was a day last June.
Fiance and I were having a bonfire with a bunch of friends and we walked back to his place to grab marshmellows. On the way back to the fire we stopped on top of a hill and layed there for over an hour looking at the stars.
I was so happy 🙂

I want to say right now since I can post on WB again!!! My computer glitched out and I couldn’t post on forums, or write emails. I decided to just randomly try once more before completly giving up and VOLA! I’m Back! 😀
In all seriousness though, I think the happiest time of my life was when my dad came back from hospital after open-heart surgery (back then it was very risky and new). I was only 5 and was living at my grandmother’s since my mom was having my sister, and there was a freak blizzard outside…yes all in the same night LOL I woke up to my dad holding a little stuffed pig for me. …I’m tearing up just thinking about this.
And yes I still have Mr. Pigglesworth 😛

I’m pretty sure when I graduate from nursing school in 33 days I will be ecstatic, and when I pass the NCLEX also will be another happy moment. I know I’ve got a lot of good times ahead.
As for past happy moments:
Placing 3rd in my age group in 3 5K races last summer. I have pictures from the races wearing the medals beaming and sweaty.
Most of my other recent moments revolve around nursing school because for the past two years it has consumed my life, so I’ll just say along with some tough times there have been some outstandingly happy moments in nursing school.

Aside from being engaged, there are three moments that come to mind.
Most recently it was a recital I played of especially difficult pieces and I nailed everything and it felt amazing. I was so happy.
Shortly after that I took a trip to see the (now fiance) boyfriend and we went kayaking in the bay and I had so much fun. I rember wishing that I could paddle around out there all day- just me, the mr., and the dolphins.
Although, and I know this sounds immature and selfish, but I recall the first time I ever took a plane trip by myself. It was to a summer music program and I was 14 or 15. It was the first time I had ever been away from my overbearing parents. My mother and I didn’t have a very good relationship at the time and I remember thinking how incredibly free I felt and how satisfying it was to know that I was on my own.
