Top 10 Things That Made Me Smile In the Last Week

Sometimes life passes by so quickly that I forget to savor the moments that make me smile.  So today I'm taking the time to think about those moments.  Here are my...

Top 10 Things That Made Me Smile in the Last Week

10) Watching a women riding a bike while reading a book.  I couldn't figure out if she was the queen of multi-tasking or a tragic accident waiting to happen.  Either way, the sight was pretty humorous.

9) Watching my kids trying to fly kites in the backyard with no wind whatsoever

8)  Waking up to see that it had rained while we slept, which means I could go a couple more days without watering the lawn

7)  Witnessing a close friend's excitement as she stepped outside her comfort zone to pursue a dream.  Her motivation is inspiring.

6)  Eavesdropping on my 2-year-old daughter Little C "reading" in bed.  I knew exactly which book she was looking at because she was actually reading correctly.

5)  Seeing my 6-year-old son Big C pulling out his own loose tooth and his face lighting up with pride

4)  Talking with an old friend I haven't seen in 6 years and realizing we picked up right where we left off

3)  Listening to Little C sing in the bathtub as dramatically as if she were about to be crowned the next American Idol

2)  Watching videos of Big C's 1st couple of baseball games and seeing how much he's improved in one season

1)  Telling my husband about my new job and hearing his excitement as he congratulated me.  I can't wait to celebrate when he gets home!

What tops your list?



  1. Every time I see Mr. Superman walking from his shop to the car. He's got this swagger. I could spot him anywhere. I'm sure its the same for all MilSpouses. Congrats on the job!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!

  2. I'm always happiest when I'm on the back of a horse and I had a couple of lovely rides last week. I'm still smiling.

  3. I still love the loose tooth part!!! Glad you were happy this last week. Lets hope for a better post next week!

    I am always happiest when I hear my children laughing and their excitement when I told them we are going to the beach =)

  7. Wow, I bet that biker was quite a sight! I finally got my furniture that I've been waiting more than a month for, so that's made me smile!

    The lady on the bike had me laughing. I would definitely kill myself if I attempted that! :)

    Having a girls night last night, I was smiling and laughing the whole time. It was a farewell for one of my girls and it was a great way to say good bye.

  9. Sounds like a fantastic week, and an excellent reminder to remember what I am grateful for. All that springs to mind right now is pizza... I'll work on it ;).

  10. First, I love your new design layout! I haven't been around in awhile, so this is probably old news...but I needed to let you know!
