ten things that have made me happy!

I've decided to start a new little section on my blog, as I've seen quite a few blogs do this type of post on a regular basis and it's such a cute idea. It's 'ten things that have made me happy'. I think it'll be nice to be able to look back on these posts and see everything that made me happy. So, here are my first ten things!

1. Craig and I went to Loch Lomond on a little mini getaway for three nights, which was amazing. The cottage we stayed in was so cute and I pretty much didn't want to leave. It was raining pretty much the whole time we were there though so it meant we spent most of the time cuddled up in bed or on the couch listening to the rain and talking. So peaceful.

2. Downloading Spotify to my computer for the first time, despite having a premium account since December. Now there is music playing all the time, it's awesome!

3. Appreciating how close the shops are to our flat. Nothing is worse than craving chocolate at 9pm and knowing there is nowhere around you to get some.

4. Watching The Great British Bake Off and pretty much drooling at all the tasty things the contestants are baking! I honestly wish I was that good.

5. Getting Winry back after my mum was baby sitting her while we were away. The flat is just too quiet without a little cat running around and meowing at everything.

6. Craig tickling my tummy when I had a bit of cramp was the cutest. He treats me well, that boy!

7. I started writing down my Christmas list and gift ideas, which made me so excited that Christmas will be here soon again. Although I can't believe it's already mid August. Where has the time gone?!

8. Call it a guilty pleasure, or self inflicted cringe, but I recently re-watched the Twilight movies and both loved and hated it. I loved the books when they were first released and the movies kind of annoyed me. Mainly because of Kristen Stewart and her inability to show any expression other than concerned.

9. I recently starting reading and following this blog - http://www.ariestrash.com/ and I absolutely love it. Especially the design, it's so nice!

10. I've finally decided on something I've been thinking about doing for a while, and it feels really good to finally have some guts and take the plunge to do it. All will be revealed in good time ;)

  1. This is such a good post idea. It's easy to overlook all the little things, when often they're the things that make us the happiest without even realising it.

    (& very excited to see what your new venture is! Good luck!)

  2. I've enjoyed the GBBO so much as well. Unfortunately I'm getting a new kitchen in and everything's so dusty I can't really bake :(

  3. I've been totally silently reading your blog since I stumbled across it and it is awesome! This is such a cute new blog segment. And what a surprise to see that my blog made it onto your happy list! The fact that it made you happy makes me happy! Thank you!
