The Happiness Challenge

Molly over at Speechbaby ( tagged us for the Happiness Challenge. We love the Speechbaby blog and her Speech Therapist gone mama point of view. This challenge is a great reminder to focus on the HAPPY!

Five things that make us happy (in no particular order):
  • A good cocktail
    This needs no explanation.
  • Newborns
    I don’t care if they are crying, pooping, spitting up, or all three. They are amazing and I will creepily stare at them and sniff their hair. Yup, I’m that lady and I’m okay with it.
  • Camping
    I’m a total rule follower, checklist driven, organizing, sticky note fiend.  When I’m camping all that goes out the window. Its a time to unplug, be dirty, build a fire, explore, throw out all the deadlines and rules. It’s magical. Also: S’Mores.
  • Baking
    Baking is one thing that always puts me in a good mood and gets me out of a funk.  Maybe its all the chocolate chips I eat while I’m baking. It’s my way of creating something to share a little happy with others.
  • Books
    Especially a good picture book and a cuddly toddler…perfection.

Five songs that make us happy:
Five Years Time – Noah and the Whale
Rocket Man – Elton John
Kickstart My Heart – Motley Crue
Walking on Sunshine – Katrina and the Waves
Happy – Pharrell Williams
