Your happy list is a great idea. Let's see... my tomato seedlings popped up and that made me happy!

Ricki Treleaven said...

I like your Happy List :D The doilies rock!

Vee said...

I love all your happy list items, but the one about your neighbor just blesses my socks off and it shows what a sweetie you are. Now I'm off to read what your friend had to say about you!

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

You are having a very happy week! Congrats on the anniversary and the smaller size :) That's excellent!

Kathy said...

How wonderful! Happy Anniversary! What a very sweet gift from a friend - the last doily looks like it has pansies ringing its edges!
Hope you have a marvelous weekend,

Brenda Pruitt said...

And what a list you have! You've got a lot accomplished this week. I've never seen those kinds of doilies either. Congrats on the anniversary and the weight loss, my friend!

Cyndi said...

What a fabulous idea, Diane! There are so many things that make me happy, and if I wrote them down, I would be so much more appreciative of them! Thanks for the idea.

And.... Happy Anniversary (a bit late, sorry!)!!! Hope you and hubby had a wonderful day!



Brenna said...

Orange doilies!! My favorite color is orange and I have it all through my house!! Such an unappreciated color!!

Great Happy List!

Della said...

You do have so many things to be happy about! Happy Anniversary, I hope you have many more!

I've never seen orange doilies either. I bet they were made in the 70's. Orange was really big back then.

Have a great weekend Diane!

Betty said...

Your list makes me happy too! I will have to look through my doilies and see if I have any orange. If I can have them!! It may take me awhile because I don't think I've unpacked the doily box yet!! LOL

Diane Writes said...

I started writing the beautiful things that happened in my everyday life in a small special notebook. I think it's somehow similar to your gratitude journal. Reading it after a year really feels so good. The feeling is priceless. It makes you realize how blessed you are and you have a lot of reasons to be happy. With what you said, I might consider reviving that practice.

Happy Anniversary to you and your Honey! I know you have a lot of reasons to be happy with your honey. The orange doilies are nice. Here in the Philippines, most high school female students are taught to make one. I remember making once with different colors too.

Continue your gratitude journal and I hope you will inspire other people to do the same.

Have a great day ahead! May you be continuously blessed!

Lovely happy thoughts, but forgive me if I do not list mine. I give thanks and am happy every day for the life adventure we are enjoying :)

And congrats on surpassing your weight loss goal! I have a 25 pound weight loss goal but I'm not doing as well as I'd hoped. Apparently, my eating is the problem. Bad food tends to make its way into my mouth!

Annabelle said...

Beautiful blog Diane.
Thanks for leaving such lovely compliments.
I recently was diagnosed with diabetes and need to lose 35 pounds; hubby already lost 20 in a month. Glad to hear others are winning the battle, gives me incentive to try again.

There is certainly too many happy thoughts to list that keeps me happy and art is one of them but my family is the most! Adore #8!!!

Congrats on the weight loss
and a Happy Anniversary.


Amanda said...

Happy anniversary! That is a wonderful list full of happies.

Let us know how you like the Snapfish prints. I've debated trying them over Walgreens for a comparison.
