The Happy Tag

Last year, Kara posted this on her blog and it looked like fun. Plus, I needed to focus on some positivity with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder for those who aren’t familiar with SAD) hanging all around me. Here are things that bring a smile to my face or make me positively absolutely happy.

    I love this! So fun and positive. I love a lot of these things, too — books, evergreen trees, How to Train Your Dragon, etc. I have a love/hate relationship with Legos. They’re fun for the kids (and for my husband, the biggest kid), but they’re ALL OVER my house. And sometimes stuck in my feet 🙁 I’m glad they bring you joy 🙂

      Thanks! I loved the idea too, lol. And, I understand about the love/hate relationship with Legos. If they were all over my house, I’d feel the same way. That’s how I feel about my cats’ toys. I think it’s cute to watch Izzy play with them, but I hate having them strewn across the floor everywhere, lol.

    Nothing like thinking of all the good things that make you happy to bring some perspective to a bad day. I didn’t know you liked The Queen. I watch it too! Still trying to get through season 2 but I have to wait till my husband can watch it too.

      Yep, exactly. And, yes, I love The Queen! I watched the first season in two binge sessions. It’s taking me a little longer to get through season 2. I’m only on episode 3, I think. But, I love it.

    This list is fantabulous! 😀

    I have a lot of fun with Lego. It’s too bad it is soooo expensive. I want to get some of the really big sets, but I talk myself out of them because of the price. Maybe this is the year. 🙂

      I agree. They are very expensive. We only buy them for special occasions–Christmas and my birthday. Well, unless an awesome set comes out that we just can’t pass up like the new Millennium Falcon, but that did end up being for Christmas. 😉
