Reason I am happy #1:
Reason I am happy #2:I was super bummed that I was going to miss the Christmas pageant that my niece was singing in with her preschool. I had to miss it due to a lame final. However, my mom and my brother came through for me and photographed and recorded her super star performance. Yes, the dress her mother picked out is heinous...and she is holding a picture of a hippopotamus (Why? Because she wants a hippopotamus for Christmas. Also, because she is awesome. Obvi.)
Reason I am happy #3:
I am listening to the soundtracks from Glee! Does this even need explanation? It does? Okay. Mr. Schuster singing, 'Endless Love'. 'Nuff said...
Reason I am happy #4:
I spent a large amount of my weekend hanging out with bff Jil. We had some serious absence issues due to me having to live in a cave and study for finals. So we reunited...and it feels sooo good! We gabbed, I schooled her in the art of twss jokes, she schooled me in the ways of operating an electric hand sander. It was good times...(Jil...why are we orange in this picture? I believe we tanned far too much this summer. Also, why are our teeth so freaking white? I didn't even mess with this one on Picnik. Weird.) So we cranked out a few of these bad boys...oh 'Scrappy Blocks' you are the cuteness (I would show you all the ones we actually made but they are top secret until after Christmas)...
Reason I am happy #5:We made a gingerbread house! My mom, Bug, and myself made this little lovely. She had a blast. Bug and I have a date later in the week to make cookies for Santa...we are legit.
Reason I am happy #6:
Two words folks, Oreo Balls. That is correct...I have never even heard of these balls of awesomeness (twss) until one of my Internet bff's blogged about them. Lauren from 'That's What She Said' made the lovelies shown in the above picture. Because she loves me she sent me the recipe and I shall be busting balls out all day tomorrow...(twss). Word to the wise, go and read Lauren's blog. She is full of awesome and #dirrrtymagic.
Reason I am happy #7:This is my desk. It was in complete disarray because of finals. It no longer looks like this. I OCD'd out on it and it is now spic and span my friends. Why yes, that IS a lava lamp. I am old school. Represent...
Reason I am happy #8:
No words are necessary. Except for swoon...
So, what are all of YOU happy about right now?
