Things That Make Me Happy

I haven’t really had a prominent topic for a blog lately so lying in bed I’m thinking of things that make me really happy and that I’m super excited about.

I’m sure that came as a shock. I’m ready to call Jason “the hubs” or “hubby”. And I’m ready to sign my name “Melody Rich”. I’m ready to decorate that house! Little things like being able to take weekend trips camping or to Mavs games. Bigger things like starting a family and falling deeper in love with one another.

2. The movie “The Holiday”.
Jason, my sister and I absolutely adore this movie! The music, the actors, the story line, everything! Even though it takes place around Christmas time, it’s ALWAYS ย a good movie to watch.

Being a music major, I appreciate the popularity of this season and their REAL musical capabilities. Wow. Just wow.

4. Fridays
Jason and I have the blessing of both having this day off. So far we’ve taken full advantage.

5. Shopping
When I’m in a shopping mood, these days are so relaxing. What makes them even better is finding $4 yoga pants at Old Navy.

6. Cleaning
I used to loathe anything that had to do with cleaning. Now I loathe it when something is the least bit dirty. Cleaning has become extremely therapeutic for me. I love a quiet day at home alone where I can just clean and mop and listen to music. Ahhh….

7. Cold Weather
Even though we’re nearly halfway through June, I can’t stop thinking about (and wearing) sweaters, long sleeve tees, jeans, boots, scarves and hats! The fact that 70% of my closet is stocked full of these items couldn’t be a contributing factor. ๐Ÿ˜›

8. Jason’s Encouraging Spirit
Before Jason came along I had no self-motivation. I would NEVER voluntarily clean anything or wake up before noon if I didn’t have to. Looking back over these past months since we got engaged I’ve obtained so many new qualities. I’m suddenly a neat-freak, I eat healthier, I get up at nine and try to walk or jog, (I actually WANT to do that. Whaaat!?) As soon as he walks in the door I start to move a lot more. He’s the reason I have so much on my to-do list.

9. My iPhone
I know, I know. That’s so lame. I love all its many functions: GPS, Facebook, Twitter, notes, calendar, etc etc. I don’t know what I’d do without it. Isn’t that pitiful?

10. Jason
He’s hot, he has a red beard, he loves to work-out, he loves to travel, he loves dogs and cats (though he’s allergic), he encourages me, he’s exactly like me, ย he buys me chocolate, he surprises me at work, he spoils me, he wants what is absolutely best for me, he wants what I want, but most of all, he loves me!

So, there you have it. The top 10 things I could think of that make me happy and excite me. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I actually enjoy those things. ๐Ÿ™‚
