Happiness lately.

Source: via Kristin on Pinterest

It seems like forever ago that I wrote about having a fresh start, turning over a new leaf.  While I followed through with some of my goals, the game changer was a new job.  This was three months before I started my new job.  I officially realized I could never be happy working in a job that made me miserable.  My current job is not perfect.  Some days are stressful, but I am happy.  While you may not always see my happiness shining through (especially with lack of blogging recently), I'd rather focus on that than a boring monologue about what I've been up to.

Things making me happy lately:

+Our December Mexico trip
+Fitting into much smaller clothing sizes I've never seen in 10+ years
+Working hard on Ripped in 30
+D telling me that I can price cleaning services
+Gift buying
+The idea of DIY-ing some gifts & decorations (must follow through)
+Buying glitter
+Not supposed to have favorites, but a few special kiddies at work warm my heart daily
+Not having to shower daily (healthier hair due to better eating habits?)
+Dawson's Creek eps & having Anna watching them too (they're much better with a twitter buddy)
+Hour long work breaks, Whole Foods down the street, and lots of time to read.
+My new desk & the prospects of finally decorating that little space

I would honestly like to go on, but I'll save the rest for later.  And I'll leave you with this little beauty that I totally want to frame.

You are in walking distance to Whole Foods? Oh girl, I would be broke if I was. Their hot/cold bar is AMAZING. Ah.

I know that I'm not the only one who's glad that you are feeling happier in the new job. I was miserable for a long time in my last position, and while it finally turned around, it makes me pickier about getting a new position now that I'm in Cali. Buying glitter is totally a great reason to be happy. :)

So glad things are going so well for you lately. :) I can't exactly complain right now . . . I am sitting in my swanky hotel room in Vegas (I'm here for the National Council of Teachers of English conference). I wanna hear more about Ripped in 30--I haven't heard of that one!
