10 Things that make me happy

Yesterday, I had so many thoughts about How I Met Your Mother that I forgot about the topic for the Blog Every Day challenge. I obviously haven't been doing every prompt, but I had been planning on doing the happiness one all along because duh, happiness is kinda the theme of this whole blog. And I'm a rule-breaker and stuff, so I'm posting it today.

10 things that make me happy:
  1. Macaroni and cheese. You guys, I eat a lot of mac and cheese... like... a lot. It's my favorite. Hands down. 
  2. Buying new fingernail polish. Garrett thinks that I already have every color and I don't need more, but you can never have too many colors, right? Right. 
  3. Stripes. I love stripes, you guys. On anything. Phone cases. Shirts. My fingernails. Scarves. Anything. My closet is so stripe-heavy. You guys would laugh. 
  4. Hugs. There are few things better than a big hug from someone you love. 
  5. Sending and receiving mail. I love writing letters and notes to people. And if you've ever sent me a card, I promise I still have it. 
  6. Pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. You can ask anyone that knows me in real life. I start counting down to PSL day months in advance. They are my favorite thing in the entire world. 
  7. Inside jokes. I don't have too many friends anymore (you know, adulthood), so I treasure the friendships that I have very much. Having secrets and inside jokes is silly, but they're special to me. 
  8. "Just saying hi!" texts. Knowing someone is thinking about me always makes me all warm and fuzzy.
  9. The Backstreet Boys Pandora station. I'm known for blasting boy band music all the time. I'm also kind of known for being perpetually stuck in 1999. Not sorry 'bout it.
  10. My iPhone. Sometimes it still blows me away that I have a tiny device in my hand that can connect me with my fiancé 4.5 hours away, teach me about the Great Wall of China, identify the new song on the radio, and keep me updated on news all around the world. It's crazy, right?

I love this prompt!
I always thought I was crazy with having too much nailpolish...but my roommate has a TON more than I do. Between the two of us, I think we have every color ever made!

I LOVE ALL OF THESE THINGS!!! Especially the pumpkin spice lattes. They're the best. I hoard the Pumpkin Spice K-Cups during the fall so I can have them year round, it's totally sick!!

I love ALL of this! Mac and cheese is my favorite, especially from Panera, and I think one of the reasons I love blogging swaps so much is just getting mail. I also love shopping for other people :) Great post!

Mac and Cheese is delicious. Also, I love handwritten letters too!

You can never have too much nail polish. I love to buy new nail polish and Jeff is always "Don't you have that color?" Boys right? :) I also love, LOVE Back street boys.

Yes to mac and cheese all the time and I'm sorry, but you have the wrong boy band Pandora station... N'sync is where it's at (at least on MY Pandora account...)
