Happiness Is….(Part Three)

A couple of months back, I posted updates of what was encompassing my happiness as of lately. Here’s part three; aka the latest on what happiness means to me:

Happiness is….

  • Great friends and fun shindigs


  • Becoming a ‘Diet-To-Go’ Brand Ambassador. (More about that later!)


  • So many fun projects & resume-builders (More about that later too)
  • My husband being mister handyman. He found a broken Mac curbside, waiting to be taken away as trash; within a week he had fixed it up, good as new. He sweetly gifted it to me, and now I have an Apple computer, webcam and all. Having Mr. Fix-It as a spouse is really convenient (and also pretty sexy.)


  • These cool kiddos. A couple more weeks until I’ve been their nanny for a year now; makes me almost weepy knowing I’ll be leaving them soon for post-graduation things. Below you can see them with the makeshift ‘toys’ my car provides:


  • Registering for my last two classes before my August graduation
  • Speaking of graduation. Today I had my very last class (excluding finals) at Concordia (I’m finishing up my last credits at local community college), aka my university/home away from home of three years. SO bittersweet. It was pretty neat having this last ever class with friend Becca, whom I also shared my first ever class at Concordia with three years ago. Oh time, where do you go?!lastday
  • Little brother being in town this past weekend. Everyone always says we look alike, and I usually completely disagree. But I guess I can admit to seeing just a teensy bit of resemblance in the below picture.


  • My runs are getting faster; yesterday I got to over three miles at an average of 8:29 per mile. That’s a second under my goal for the year!


  • ONE MORE WEEK until husband and I are New Orleans/Caribbean cruise bound. Eeek!

There’s a lot of words that could describe this time of my life. Busy. Exciting. Productive. Overwhelming. Stressful. Fun. Crazy. But if I had to come up with one word to sum it all up, I think it’d simply be, “Happy.” And for that, I feel very blessed indeed.
