Happiness is....(Kellie's list)

Happiness is....

...black, patent leather, soccer cleats. Her first pair.

...a very new, very shiny, very deep, stainless kitchen sink.

...a man who will willingly, without complaint, spent an entire Saturday installing sink, including re-doing the plumbing!

...finding Mt. Dew in a new yummy flavor for The Mister.

...being healthy.

...and strong.

...reading in the middle of the afternoon.

...rain, without fear of tornado's! Or falling tree's.

...friends.

...fresh bread.

...with butter and jam.

...hugging my man during the "meet and greet" at church first, before shaking hands with any body else.

...when the older couple behind us laughs and teases us. But when shake our hands they tell us they are happy to see it.

...sitting extra close in the pew. Even when nobody is sitting next to us.

...the feeling in the air at 5:45 yesterday morning.

...autumn is coming.

...watching the sunrise while running.

...stopping in the middle of that run to chat with a friend on her own early morning run.

...eating breakfast with the family every morning.

...eating dinner together too.

...peanut m&m's added to freshly popped popcorn. (plain for Blue Skies)

...eating them with My Girls.

...in Texas.

...or NC

...or AZ

...or the blogging world.

...year round school. (In two weeks we get a break all ready!)

...a boy, soon to celebrate a decade of living.

...a girl, who still loves hair bows.

Happiness is...being grateful for all these things...and so very much more.

La Vida Dulce!

I like your list very much! Partly because it is very you, and partly because I agree! Especially the one about tornadoes. It is truly a fear for me. Did I tell you we had one here the other day? Sirens, no electricity, wind and branches falling down...but for the first time in my entire life I wasn't scared and I didn't even rededicate my life as I often did as a kid! The reason I wasn't scared is we finally have a basement!! If ever I move back to Tejas, I am having one if I have to dig it myself with my kitchen spoons. It can't be much worse then peeling wallpaper, don't you think?

Mmmm, can you pass the popcorn and peanut M&M's?

There's a new flavor of Mountain Dew? Tell me EVERYTHING.

And I know this sounds gross. But on popcorn? Get you some nutritional yeast. We tried it in San Francisco and we are HOOKED.

That's NUTRITIONAL. Not brewer's.
