32 Things That Make Me Happy // A LINK UP! //

So, Miss One Thirds Not Hazel, who you may know better as Erin (I'm sorry that was really dumb, but I already typed it and I left my Lisa Frank eraser back in 1994 so it's going to stay) messaged me last night asking if I wanted to spin my April Fool's post around to the warm and fuzzy side with a link up today. I said abso-friggin-lutely and thus, 32 Things That Make Me Happy {the link up} was born. 
Venus Trapped in Mars


1. Pizza

2. Celebrities retweeting/replying to me begin name dropping in 5...4...3...2... Ryan // Ramona // Asa there are just so so so so many more to list... just so many more............. moving on.

3. School supplies

4. Bargains This dress was $300 marked down to $79 with an additional 40% off, used my Macys card for an extra 20% off and had a gift card. They paid me to take the dress.

5. The word WIGWAM just say it. Say it. See if you don't feel better about the day and about your outlook on life

6. Karma


7. Hitting bullseye drops mic, walks away from dart board

8. "Can I buy you a shot?" yes.

9. Wine

10. No Pun Intended but really, with me, it is always intended.  

11. Figuring out a restaurant's locked WIFI password it's a gift, really

12. Hitting the bonus game on a slot machine I'd rather get to play the bonus game than win the jackpot. I wish I could say I was kidding.

13. Tim Tebow getting cut 

14. Booping General's nose Just General's. Veenie has a nice nose too, but it isn't as boop-worthy.

15. Sunday Night Football when all of the player's introduce themselves and their college Ball so Hard University

16. Stretchy Pants

17. The lighting in TJ Maxx fitting rooms 

18. The magic mirrors in Forever 21 fitting rooms I don't care if they are deceiving, I look damn good in those mirrors.

19. Row One, Upper Deck leg room, a spot for my feet and an unobstructed view all for twelve bucks.

20. Tickets to anything. Just tickets. Tell me a time you had tickets in your posession and weren't tickled.

21. Miranda Lambert 

22. Airline miles

23. Bloody Marys with all of the snacks seriously, if there isn't an entire brunch worth of food attached to my BM, I'm sending it back

24. When the Lean Cuisine doesn't make me stir halfway through

25. When Lane Kiffin gets made fun of


26. When a friend (I don't like the phrase IRL, but IRL) tells me they read my blog you, you do? *insert wide-eyed, open-mouthed-smile*

27. All of the sports that was a cop-out, I'm sorry. But really, all of the sports.

28. Revenge does this fall with Karma? I'm not really sure, but I don't think so. Revenge can be something as simple as posting a really hot picture on Facebook....

29. #NailedIt On the Winged Eyeliner god that feels so good. I think this actually may be my number one, but I'm not required to choose, am I?

30. When someone wants to send me free stuff

31. Eating everything in sight from Friday-Sunday, then stepping on the scale Monday and losing weight but but but, are you sure? I'd like to thank the academy...

32. Giraffes

  1. Losing weight after eating like crap IS THE BEST THING EVER!!
    And I'm so glad school supplies makes someone else really happy too! My life hasn't been the same since I no longer have a legit excuse to spend tons of money on them!

  4. Hey! The Wigwam is a hotel that is currently trying to win our 2016 event! HAHA I was just looking through their details yesterday. I'm tempted to pick them just b/c I love the name...

  5. That awesome deal on a dress?? Too cool!

  6. I've never noticed the F21 mirrors! Most of the time I feel like my (brown) skin ends up looking yellow and my face looks tired in EVERY dressing room I visit. And then I step outside and I look better, instantly. Maybe they think that if my face looks ugly, I'll be more likely to buy the clothes.

  7. Getting something on major sale. The only time you will hear y brag about my possessions. I can't not share an amazing deal!

  8. I can't remember the last time I was in a Forever 21, but I may have to go in just for the mirrors if they are as magical as everyone says.

  20. can making fun of Lane Kiffin be take at least 2 spots?!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Everything about this list makes me giddy inside. Especially pizza. And wine. But really, just everything.

    ReplyDelete
  22. When the lean cuisine doesn't make you stir halfway through! It's like a giant load off your shoulders. Lazy for the win.

    ReplyDelete
  23. #23 I miss Midwest bloody mary's soooo much. People in NY look at me like a crazy person when I ask for beer with my BM. Well, maybe it's because I ask for beer, cheese, olives, pickles, more cheese and a slice of pizza. Who drinks them plain? Lame.

  24. omg i am dying over the wine photo! that is so me!! im all about pouring a fish bowl and bringing the bottle over to the couch with me. less movement for me, more wine in my mouth! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love all of these too! #15 is the exact reason I love Sunday Night Football as well! I don't even care if it is a team I don't like! I just love hearing them say where they are from :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. HA the Lean Cuisine one cracked me up. I hate that. And can I just be Miranda Lambert? For so many reasons… but really because she gets to look at Blake Shelton and do other things with him...

  27. drops mic, walks away

  28. F21 totally has the most amazing mirrors! I feel like I look thinner, more tanned and have a flawless complexion what kind of magic are they using!?

    ReplyDelete
  29. This list is hilarious! I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the bonus games on slot machines! I once hit 80 bonus spins and was so excited it didn't even matter that I only won like $35 from it. Did you know some machines when you hit the bonus let you skip the games and just get the prize, and some people actually pick that option! Whenever I see people do that I want to go up to them and be like "hello what is wrong with you? Those bonus games are so fun!"

  31. #26 - when that happens to me, my internal dialogue: "omg did i blog about her? did i like, even vaguely mention her? i was totally pissed at her like a month ago. crapcrapcrap. now i need to go back and read at least the last ten posts. surely she didn't read anything further than that, right?"

    ReplyDelete
  32. I completely agree with you about sports and tickets. I have multiple tickets sitting here for summer events and I get giddy whenever I look at them.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Among so many others, #1!!!!! This happened to me last Saturday. And I was all but, but... I only worked out twice this week. Yes, thank you academy indeed!

    Oh, and the Lane Kiffin/Stefon meme.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. So many of these made me smile! Ah! Hell yes to the giraffes. My fave animal. I've only had one celeb tweet me back, and I literally couldn't stop smiling for days. Wine...can never have enough duh. Just so many of these. Love your list.
