10 Things That Make Me Happy

I was tagged, so here are some personal tidbits about what makes me happy...

1. Tickle fights with my boys and getting greeted at the door with hugs and kisses after a long day’s work or a tough workout

Tyler's Tickle Monsters

2. Cuddling on the couch with Douglas (and Indy, our chocolate lab) watching How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory -- if you don't watch these shows, you are missing out!

3. Finishing the “toughest” workout of the week, usually my long brick and crossing the finish line at a race (elation!)

4. A good meal, particularly (in no specific order) pancakes, spaghetti, sandwiches on fresh bread, ok, really any good meal. I love to eat.

5. My weekly catch up calls with Allie (she lives in CA and I only get to see her once a year or so, but it is so nice to decompress with a girlfriend!) and family fun dates with the Browns, Englands and McGowans
6. A good bargain – I love finding *things I need / want* on sale!

7. Listening to a good audio book on a long run – it is a multi-tasker’s dream come true!

8. Capturing great photos of my family – the age of innocence is fleeting and those smiles are so precious!

9. Margaritas with girlfriends – I definitely don’t get to enjoy this one often enough!

10. Blog comments. The encouragement is fantastic, the feedback is helpful and it gives me a sense of community. I am pretty good about leaving comments on people’s blogs who leave comments on mine, wink wink!

Now, I am supposed to tag 10 fellow bloggers - all of these blogs are definitely worth a read, including the blogs of Mark (TriDadofFive) and Kelly (TriMommyLife) who both tagged me!

2. Joel - TriMadness
3. Kristin - The Lazy Marathoner
4. Big Daddy Diesel
5. Jessi Thompson - a super FAST trimommy!
6. Sonja - Go Sonja! - Endurance athlete extraordinare
7. Sally Aston
8. Kathleen
9. Mike Russell
10. Rockstar Tri

Awesome list! They really are all great things. The picture of your boys is too cute.

Allie said...

I love our catch up calls too! (And I still love that picture of Homer and I!)

Mike Russell said...

Hey thanks for the mention. I have to admit to loving a good sale too. I own way too many shoes for a man, but wow, do I love a great pair of shoes. Is that wrong to admit? ;)

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Great list Anne. Like you, I also love to eat. My favorite food list would be a mile long.
