    At this time of year we let our dogs hair grow out, the hair on top of her get gets all fuzzy, that is so darn cute and makes me laugh.

    When I can make someone who is sad, laugh

    It makes me happy to hear my hubby laugh

    When Im not in much pain

    When my dog jumps on my chest and holds me down in the morning and licks my entire face. Its like a Good-Morning-Mommy kiss.

    How my dog gets so excited when I come home from shopping.

    When I give my dog a new toy and she takes off running with it and starts shaking it. So cute.

    How my hubby falls asleep with his arm around me.

    Love watching my dog and hubby interact with each other.

    When me and my sister talk on the phone and we laugh at each others jokes even though others dont think its funny.

    And Cute photos like these.

    Please join my community called GRUMPY GROUPIES ( ) Fun and serious topics, nothing is taboo. So get on over there. Weirdo's are welcomed.

    Hmm...what makes me happy?

    My children's laughter

    Fall colored leaves

    Standing as snow falls over me and seeing it cover the ground

    A hug from my best friend in the whole world. It makes me melt.

    Silly kids songs like this:

    Watching my 2 favorite shows - Revenge and Sons of Anarchy

    Accomplishing/doing something I thought I would never be able to do again!

    Knowing I can be alone and be happy.

    The beach

    Dolphins...preferably the real ones

    hubby goes all out to wrap my gifts in big ribbons and bows even if it's a small box with a pair of socks

    hubby and I go to sleep like spoons

    i have a good bible study
    with my woman's group

    when I go grocery shopping
    see all the food and it smells good

    when I take moody pictures with my camera, when I email my friends, when my mind is free I write well and laugh so hard it hurts
    A little yoga goes a long way
