My Happy List




Let me honest, in the past I've never given tons of attention to posts like this.
However, after I participated last week I realized that taking the time to think 
about this and to actually write it down really changes things.

  I felt happy doing it!

So....

1.  Yesterday I got my kitchen sparkling clean and since everyone is super busy this week
it might stay that way for a day or two. You can see that by
sliding down and reading yesterday's post.

2.  The sunshine has been beautiful here!



3.  I'm working on my desk area.

This is what it looked like before we moved in.


Um, it looked like this 2 days ago....I was already cleaning here.

Don't worry, I'm not a hoarder or anything.


I'll show you the clean and pretty later. 
I'm just happy that the mess is finally getting cleaned and organized.
This desk is right around the corner from the kitchen and it is a total dumping ground.

4.  Today is Tuesdays with Dorie day.

I just can't get enough of her tiny little cottage.

You must go see it!

What's making you happy today?

Join us by writing it down. :)
It will make you feel all warm and cozy inside!

I am happy today because I am finally to the point of doing a reveal on our project room. We started it a few weeks ago and it has kept me really busy. But, I am having fun with it!

:D Thanks so much for linking-up. You've made me happy in doing so! I've been a little nervous today about this linky.

You have a great list, and I love it when my kitchen is sparkly clean even if it only lasts for two hours or so!

I have cleaning out my kitchen desk on my "To Do" list for January....it really needs it!

xo,

Good Morning!
Everyday is a happy day! Love your new home! I get ideas every time I stop by. I am also very jealous of your clean kitchen. I need to get busy cleaning and organizing as well. Have a great day and as always thanks for the inspiration!

Good morning Stacey! Um, that desk area looks a lot like mine right now....except I think mine's a lot worse! You won't be seeing any pictures of it any time soon. Yikes! I love the picture of the sunlight streaming in over your bed. So pretty. I'm happy to have figured out why our dogs kept getting out, so hopefully they'll stay put now! Have a great week!

My island and desk area are the two places I tend to toss the mail and throw magazines. You've just inspired me to clean it all up! Have a good one, Stacey!

I love reading these happy posts! It's always there if you look for it. Your desk area looks very much like our office. I just try to make stacks and keep things in baskets. To sort it out would take days! lol!

Beautiful, sunny pictures. It's sunny here, too, but below zero. Gotta love winter!

XO,
Jane

I am happy today because the sun is shining! We have had so so much rain, it was quite depressing and dreary! Now there are clear skies ahead! Blessings, Tammy

I'm happy to see someone else's dumping ground! Your sunshine shots? LOVE!

Olive said...

Hi Stacey, my bar catches everything because it is the first thing we see when we walk in and makes your desk look great. Today I cleaned the floor of my pantry, just the floor, that made me happy. xo, olive

Lisa said...

Love your desk, Stacey! What a great idea to put the cork in as your backsplash!
PS Thanks for sharing Dorie with us. :)

there is nothing better than having a clean room in the house
granted having an entire house clean is fabulous, but for just even one room is an accomplishment

I love your pictures with sunshine.
I love your desk area...even cluttered. :) I can't wait to see it all cleaned.

I love your list and the sunshine! Today I was happy to get out and go to some thrift stores! I didn't spend much but it was fun to look! Hugs!

Sunshine makes me sooooo happy!

It does feel wonderful to clean and organize doesn't it?!

You're lucky to have a great space!

Stacey,
I'm happy for the month of January, somehow it energizes me to organize and pare down. :D

Hi Stacey! Oh, I loved reading your happy list. I did scroll down and read your yesterday's post about your kitchen! I love your kitchen - everything about it. It' so pretty and I giggled at your upside down valances. I like them the way you have them too. Keep being happy today!
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

A clean kitchen is a happy kitchen! Mine happens to be clean today too, so I'm happy I can walk through it without keeping my eyes to the floor! Thanks for the cute reminder to stop and be happy!
