It’s been……………a week.  So, since I can’t seem to come up with any intelligent fragments for my usual Friday fare, I decided to focus on Happy Thoughts and join RxBambi and Otin on Happy Hour Friday.  And to further follow their lead, I’m going to post this Thursday night, as soon as I’m done typing.  Might as well do it right!
  • Princess Nagger not screaming and crying at the dentist the other day made me very happy.  I didn’t even need to see if I could con the dentist into letting me have a shot of the laughing gas, though I suppose that would have made me happier.
  • A freshly bathed and brushed puppy makes me happy.  Cuddle time is so much more enjoyable when they smell pretty.
  • A nice glass of wine makes me happy. 
  • Getting an unexpected card or letter in the mail makes me happy.  No one seems to do the ‘snail mail’ method any more, so it’s always a pleasant surprise.
  • Bloggy friends make me happy.  Especially when they make me laugh with an email or a comment.
  • Random emails or text messages make me happy.  
  • Kind and thoughtful people make me happy.
  • Fall makes me happy, and getting my fall decorations out this weekend and put up will really make me happy.

What makes you happy?  Don’t forget to stop by to check out the Happy Hour posts at Wizard of Otin, Sane Without Drugs and A Day in the Life of a Would-Be Bambi…They’ll really make you happy!

  1. Excellent happy list!!! Great to ponder happy thoughts once in a while 🙂

    My boys were also high strung at the dentist. They outgrew it this last year. (14 and 11) It will pass for PN too.

    They also used to hate a hair cut. Both were screamers!!

  2. I like some of those unexpected things too. It's always nice to get an email or the real mail from someone.

  3. Great Happy List. I'll tell you what made me really happy tonight.

    I went to watch my son play JV football tonight.
    Happy #1 was that I fit into my 'skinny' jeans tonight…woohoo.
    Happy #2 was even after a burger and fries and diet coke, I did not have to unbutton the jeans to breathe.
    Happy #3 was coming home to peel the skinny jeans off because they were getting too tight and put on my flannels.

    I will be joining the Happy Hour Friday tomorrow night.

  4. I do love getting cards or letters through snail mail 🙂 It's such a wonderful thing because nobody seems to use it anymore, so you know the person who sent it put in a little extra effort to get to you. Now, if only all those bills and notices were gone! hahaha 🙂

  5. Although fall does not make me happy, I can see where it might for some people.

    I also like getting things in the mail that do not have a due date!!

    Dentists suck! I still would cry, she was a trooper!

    Great list, and thank you!!!!

  6. Oh, I love hearing other people's happy thoughts! It makes it easier for me to find my own. It must be the great fall vibes goin right now, because there are so many happy things that have to do with fall, like getting ready for holidays, beautiful leaves, cute fall clothes, yummy warm comfort food…. Thanks for such a great post!

  7. Bloggy friends make me happy too. So does food but it makes me unhappy too when I can't button my pants. How can something make you so happy and so sad at the same time? Happy Friday.

  8. Fantastic list! I too love getting cards etc. via snail mail. A lot of the things on your list make me happy too, especially the fall decorations!

    Have a great Friday!

  9. I love getting actual mail, but it's so rare. I always feel like a kid when I open the mailbox and see something unexpected. Like "look look it's for me, yay". Yes, I am like seven years old on the inside. 🙂

  10. I'm happy blogger thought of blog archives, so I can scroll down and read everything I've been missing.
    I would have missed a lot of cute stuff too.
    Have a great week-end honey. xo d

  11. GAH now I'm feeling the pressure to make you laugh with my comment- only I'm at work in my serious work mode 😉

  12. Yay for Happy Hour Friday!

    I like your list!
    Unexpected mail (like checks) and cards are so fun to get. Hmmm…maybe I ned to send some to receive some!
    Have a great weekend!

  13. Hi Sassy! Love your choice of blogs, especially that whack job Otin.

    Anyway, you know me…it's Chris. I've moved, though, so I hope you'll come to my new site at Sorry to "use" your comments to advertise, but I had to get rid of my old blog and start over. Hope you understand.

    Take care.

  14. Lots of those things make me happy too! Having you for a friend is on my list!

    It's too complicated for me to email when on this borrowed computer so I'll have to fill you in when I get home. But, it's been a great experience so far. I've met some pretty terrific people here.

  15. Lotsa things make me happy. If I were to be philosophical I'd say honestly makes me happy. If I were to pick something trivial, I'd say….anything chocolate or covered in chocolate or dipped in chocolate makes me happy.

  16. Ooh, I'm so glad to hear that PN did well at the dentist this time! Woot woot!

    Let's see… what makes me happy. Many of the same things as you, minus the wine.
    Listening to Strudel crunch on her food or ice cubes.
    Listening to my kids play together and laugh.
    The very infrequent times Jimmy says, "Sure, I can do that".

    Justine 😮 )

  17. lol. gald to hear the trip to the dentist went well. our big scare this week was Flu-mist…the flu vacine…logan was scared they would get to him and run out so he would have to get a shot…lol. happy friday!

  18. I am so tired I thought I read, "a freshly baked puppy" then I read it again, and was happy that wasn't what I read. ahhhhh….
