Thursday Thirteen

13 Simple Things That Make Amy Just Plain Happy
1. I'm going to see Pirates 3 tonight with my hubs at 8pm! Plus my ticket is free 'cause I got wheels....yay!
2. My son surprised me with a pink rose he picked from our rose bush. It's big, beautiful and and makes my bedroom smell wonderful.
3. Jordin Sparks wins American Idol and Apolo Anton Ohno won Dancing With The Stars!
4. Receiving an actual handwritten letter in the mail from a friend. Nobody writes letters anymore. Why is that?
5. Free samples in the mail make my day! This is just a suggestion, but I try to get as many free samples of pet food that I can and when I get a small box full I donate it to the animal shelter. And even the local food shelters will take the sample sizes of shampoos and soaps. Just an idea!
6. Little House On The Prairie shows when Almanzo and Laura fall in love. Awww!
7. Sitting outside and the only thing you hear are birds singing and you can tell that even they are happy! The sky is a beautiful blue and filled with the whitest, biggest, puffiest clouds. You feel like a kid again and you see an alligator in that cloud and maybe an elephant in another one. Then you start remembering how you used to have contests with the neighbors to see who could roll down the hill the fastest!
8. Finding a kitchen gadget at the thrift shop or Wal-mart and you wonder how you ever lived without it.
9. Anything Blue, of course! I just get all giddy when I see anything blue.
10. Getting an e-mail from Bath & Body Works and learning that their new scent is Pineapple! *SNIFF* Mmmm, I can taste it already!
11. Our bulldog is a daddy's girl, but when he is at work Wensley has to be by my side ALL day long. If you're not an animal lover this won't mean much to you, but for those that are you know what it's like to feel loved, especially when you're having a bad day.
12. Finding a baby picture of my son at two months old. He is on cloud nine and so am I! For this to make sense you need to know that we adopted him at 3 1/2. All our pictures are from that point on. He and I just looked at that precious picture forever smiling and oohing and aawwing.
13. Cutting down on my prednisone and finally not being starved to death! My body knows it that's for sure because I am in a world of hurt today. But I think I would rather tough it out than have that feeling of hunger for the next two months and probably gaining a lot of weight.
My daughter is graduating this Saturday so I probably won't get to visit or post for a few days. I have cakes to bake and cookies to make and I can't forget to decorate! I promise to watch the sweets this weekend ;o) I will miss you all and hope and pray that everyone is well until I return. Have a great, wonderful weekend!

We were in Disneyland the night before they had the world premier of Priates 3. The set-up they had there was awesome!

I love hearing the birds sing, but at 5:00 this morning, I wanted to throw something at them! LOL!

My son is adopted too! :)

Great list and reasons to be happy! I did a "happy" them last week.

what a great idea about the pet food samples! I've never sent away for them because we don't have pets, but maybe I should now!

I'm sure the graduation will be just beautiful and I can't wait to read all about it!
