This week I am going to look at the positives.  Today more specifically the things that I love.  THINGS not people.  You don’t really want me to make you a list of all the people I love do you?  That would be a LOT of reading.

I *LOVE* my DVR.  Because without it I would go mad.  Thank goodness it is HUGE because lately I am a total slacker and am way behind on… EVERYTHING.

I *LOVE* the talking dog Dug in Up.  And now I am obsessed with adopting a dog and naming him Dug.  Don’t tell Hubby.  Hubby if you are reading this… he followed us home.  What was I supposed to do? *grin*

I *LOVE* my wedding rings.  And I especially love when someone comments about them.  They are so sparkly and still make me grin from ear to ear.  And even though I say “aww, shucks, thanks” and pretend to brush off the compliment, I am really thinking “oh yeah, you wish you were me right now, don’t you, booya!” *blink*


I *LOVE* the word motorboat.  Because it always makes me laugh to say it or hear it.  I guess I’m just a kid at heart and can’t help but giggle.

I *LOVE* that I haven’t shaved my legs in three weeks and nobody has noticed.  Maybe I am trying to set a record.  What?

I *LOVE* my new shampoo.  When I get out of the shower, all I can smell is fresh celery.  Odd but refreshing.

I *LOVE* fuzzy socks.  But really, who doesn’t? Am I right?

I *LOVE* my house.  Right now I really love it though because it’s clean! *gasp*

I *LOVE* my dual monitors on my desk.  And I love that I am so spoiled that getting on the laptop makes me cringe because I am so damn spoiled.

I *LOVE* tattoos and can’t wait to get more.  It’s on my wish list fer suuure.


I *LOVE* coffee shops.  Yummmmmeh!

I *LOVE* drive thru’s.  All sorts.  Drive thru Starbucks, drive thru food but especially drive thru liquor. *grin*

I *LOVE* my Tahoe.  One main reason is that when I am in the drive thru at Starbucks and the little red convertible thinks he can cut in line all I have to do is edge up a little and he knows that I could squash him like a bug.  And he of course backs off.  I feel tough.  Check out these guns.  *flexing muscles*  *giggle*  (ok, well maybe he was just letting me in because he was nice… either way I win, right? hah!)

What things do you *LOVE*?

Loving the odd bits

Life is full of tiny bits of happiness that we tend to take for granted.  Or if you are like me, these tiny bits of happiness are what you strive for every day.  For me, it is the little things.  Most of them are just around my house.  Why not? Considering I spend 99% of my time in my house.  But there are certain things in my home that make me intensely happy.

All of us have at least a couple of these little bits.  They can be something that nobody else could possibly find joy in, like the smell of your husband’s pillow, or something that we all see like the smile of a baby.

Here is a list in no particular order with some of the odd bits of life that I love.  Some you will find boring, perhaps, but all of which make *me* blissfully happy.  And as we have covered a lot lately, this blog *is* all about me. Yay me!

  • Candles – I try to light at least one candle in my house a day.  Although it sometimes gets put on the back burner.  Right now I am addicted to these Pomegranate candles from Target.  The smell makes me insanely happy.  And all it takes is one to send the smell through the entire house!  (So I light three. *grin*)
  • My Books – The look, feel and smell of a new book always makes my heart melt!  The anticipation of reading the book is an amazing feeling.  I have a LOT of books to be read and they make me smile just thinking of them sitting all alone in nervous anticipation of me opening their pages.
  • Matching Flatware or as I have always called it Silverware – I bought a new set of beautiful silverware (not made of silver) last year and for the first time in my life I have an entire set of silverware that matches!  Not a whole bunch of mixed matched knives and forks from different sets.  It’s weird, I know, but every time I open the drawer and see my beautiful set of flatware, I smile and sigh with contentment.
  • Seltzer – Nothing sends me a zing like my drug drink of choice, LaCroix Lime Seltzer.  Ice cold and just opened? Can’t think of anything on the planet I would rather drink.  Alcohol included.  If you know me, you know THAT is a bold statement.  🙂  I drink a 12 pack of these bad boys every day.  That is typically ALL I drink.  And that’s why I buy it in bulk from the grocery store once a month.
  • My Saint Patrick’s Day Coffee Mug – It’s like St. Patty’s Day every day in this house.  Because that mug is the best mug EVA!!  So I use it every day for my hot tea.  It’s perfection.
  • Giggling – My husband and my son have the best giggles and laughs in the world!  It is one of my favorite sounds and it too makes me blissfully happy.  It’s a feeling I can’t replicate.  And I love it.  I couldn’t make any list of things I love without including their giggles.

It may be a goofy list.  But it’s my happy list.  Yay me!  (btw, Yay Me! is now my new motto.  I plan to use it often.  Soak it up. :))

What are your bits of happiness?  What are the little things that make you blissfully happy?

about moi…

Hi, my name is Cass. I am married to an amazing man who loves me unconditionally. I’m a stay at home mom to a rockin’ 2 year old boy who I call Monkey. I have an 12 year old step-daughter who lives in another state. We miss her daily. We also have two fur babies, Daisy and Jazz, who keep us on our toes. They are awesome!

I am a complete goofball, a photographer and a constant out loud thinker. I am a grammar challenged, vulgar, cursing, sex obsessed Big Mama fumbling through life. Among other things, I battle PCOS causing infertility, Bi Polar, Anxiety and OCD.

Currently I am riding the fertility roller coaster in an attempt to make Monkey #2. This blog is about a little of everything. I hope you enjoy. Read at your own risk!
