Friday Happies

I went to get a pedicure today and had the BEST foot massage ever!  But wait, there's more!  As an added bonus, I got a "scalp" massage too! Talk about "toes curling"! Remember my post last year, Hairgasmic?

Well, that's what it was all over again. All courtesy of the nail salon ladies. I was a happy girl, driving home. In an effort to lift my spirits, I made a list of  things that made me happy today and made me smile. I thought I'd share them with you, just for kicks.

"Ten Happies"

1.  Driving home this evening I saw the most beautiful sunset.  I had to pull over and just take it in.  It was amazing!

2.  My three year old niece called me today (with help, I'm sure!) and said, "Lub you aunt Beebon" She can't say my name very well yet.

3.  Took a drive to the beach today and sat on the sand.  Watched the waves crashing on the sand and inhaled the aroma of the Gulf.

4.  Read some Shakespeare and Elizabeth Barret Browning.

5.  Watched reruns of Good Times.

6.  Hugged my mom and held on longer than usual.

7.  Read comments from some of you regarding my Pity Party post.  I felt the love.

8.  Enjoyed some wine, good conversation with a friend and more hugs.

9.  Bought me some new perfume.

10.  Bought a dozen peach roses for myself.  I'm staring at them now.

And there you have it, my Friday in a list.  Hope everyone has a great weekend! Do me a favor, do something -anything that makes you smile.

Ciao!

Way to treat yourself! That sounds like an amazing day. I love peach roses (they are my favorite) and got choked up every time my niece said "I lub you Aunt Jewie"...she got so big so fast (just turned 5) so enjoy that!

You got me a bit teared up at this post. I am so happy that you treated yourself to such an amazing day!

Sometimes you just have to treat yourself to something like that every once in a while.

I used to go every couple of months for a massage. I loved every minute of it.

You see? I *knew* you'd turn it all around. You took that pity party and turned it into happy party! :)

Sounds like you had an awesome day. I think it's so cool that you can find enjoyment out of so many different things. Seems like the key to a happy life, if you ask me.

Way to go, Yvonne!

Great list of Happies! We need to rejoice in the small things of life, except that they really aren't small.

Peach roses sound beuatiful and always good to give your mum a hug. Good wine and good conversation always a plus.......hope you are having a great weekend

I have never had a scalp massage at the salon, but I bet that is fantastic. I am going to put that on my to-do list. Don't know when, but definitely someday soon. Thanks for the heads up on that one. Sounds like you put a lot of happy in your Friday. Good for you, girl.
