27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27

I am over a quarter of the way through with the 100 Happy Days challenge.
So proud of myself.

Anywho, today's happy is brought to you by this:

This Bundt Cake pan has brought many goodies to my family.
Most notably, the Lemon Ricotta Cake we will be consuming for dessert tomorrow.

The best thing about this pan...I paid $2 for it at a garage sale.
Yep. $2.
Then as I turned to leave said garage sale, I slipped on their lawn & fell.  Slid about 3 feet...all without ever loosing my grip on Cheeks.  He wasn't even a year yet.
Baby hurt?
Mission accomplished.

Here's my question, have you ever bought something at a garage/yard sale that has given you joy over the years?
What was it?
Tell me.

Struggling with 3 Days of Happy

For the last three days I have struggled, well not really struggled, but tried hard to find something that stood out for me that should be my "Happy" for the day.

Imagine my surprise when days 24, 25 & 26 took care of themselves.
My email actually gave me my happy for the these days.

It just came out of the blue and it's so needed.

I know I am the only one that got this email, so don't try saying you did too because, pashaw, I totally won like the person said.

So nanenanepoopoo (yes I did just resort to that)

Take a gander at my happy:

22, 23, When will the numbers end

The numbers will end on the 100th day of the 100 Happy Days Challenge.
How ya' like them apples??
Tee hee.

Yesterday was gorgeous in Jersey.  In the 70's.  Ab Fab Really! 
Remember that show?
It was a British Import.

This show was too hysterical.
Who watched it?

I took Cheeks to Stratosphere Trampoline Park yesterday.
He had a ball and I enjoyed watching him have a ball.
My 7yo has always loved jumping from way in the womb!  I thought for sure I was giving birth to a future NBA star with all that jumping.
Seriously thinking of having his b-day party there this year.

Today's happy was easy.
I won a giveaway for Dragons: Defenders of Berks Part 1 DVD from Sweep Tight.
My 42yo will flip.
Yes, you read it right...Bobster is a lover of the Dragons films & shows.
It's nice to know I have 4 boys, not just 3.

What was your happy today?
Better yet, what has been going on with you?

21 Happy Days of the 100 Happy Day Challenge

Yesterday was so beautiful that I wasn't really around.
It was day 20.
We started the day off with a two hour karate class for Cheeks.  Beginners first followed by leadership.

My happy for today is the amount of pride I have in my 7yo.  He becomes such a different child when he is in that classroom.
He is focused, respectful, always volunteering and silent!  Love the silent part.
That happiness from yesterday, seeing him do his "moves", is carrying me through today.

That wasn't the only happiness yesterday.
Cheeks discovered that some flowers had bloomed across the street.  We just had to go see.
I picked one, told him they were called buttercups and taught him how to check to see if you like butter.  Surprisingly, we both like it.  I wonder if Paula Deen has ever done that test.

I broke the buttercup off & had Cheeks put it behind his ear.

I thought he would keep it there but as we were leaving the park, he ran back and put it with the other flowers.
When I asked why he told me he didn't want to take it from it's family.

How freakin sweet was that??!!!???

Again, happy.

Tell me, what has been your happy lately?

17,18,19 Hike

The past few nights (when I do my blogging) have just been busy, busy, busy.
Last night, the 15yo had an outdoor deck hockey game at 9pm.  By the time it was over & we were home it was 11pm.  That is past my bedtime y'all!

Anyway I'm going to work backwards on the 100 Happy Day challenge for the past 3 days.

Today's happy came from my mailbox!

My prize from my win at Sweeps4Bloggers.While I am not a jerky fan, Bobster & Chris are.
More power to them...Enjoy!

Yesterday's happy was my new 31 Bag.  There was a fund raiser at work & I love to support fund raisers.

Check it out:

Is that not the cutest?
For some reason they put my middle initial in the middle.  I always thought the last initial went there. Ah, who cares.
Isn't it the kickiest?  10 pts for those that can guess my middle members are barred from entering.

The day be yesterdays happy was this great looking sky:


Isn't it so pretty.  That was the sky about 5:30 on my home.  Fluffy clouds, blue sky for miles.
Made me happy.

What has been making you happy???

Cotton Trees (100 Happy Days)

I was stopped at a light on my way home from work tonight.  Very close to home.
I looked to my right & what did I see:

Like the smear on my windshield?
Nice huh?

I do not know what kind of tree this is but I love it. 
Cotton Tree is what I call it.
Clearly it isn't but I can never remember the name of it from one season to another.

So that's my happy.

What's yours?
