A Happy List // 2

I've seen a few types of these "happy lists" floating around blogland and even wrote my own for the first time a few weeks ago. I like the idea of doing them every so often and especially like how Emily of The Little Diary writes hers. So, with that in mind, I have decided to officially name these posts "a happy list" because it is what makes the most sense to me.

Now here's my little happy list on this fine Monday...
+ Mornings on the patio with iced coffee, a book, and Marly cuddles.
+ Season two of Orange Is The New Black.
+ Having no plans whatsoever.
+ Being featured on ModCloth's blog today!
+ The perfect twirling and swishing skirt I bought today.
+ How wonderfully neat and clean my bedroom (& the whole house!) is.
+ That I did a pretty decent job on my DIY manicure this afternoon.
+ How amazing I felt in the first pair of Madewell jeans I have ever tried on the other day (seriously going back for them when I have the extra money).
+ Getting to shop and have lunch with my stepmom earlier today while our house was being shown.
+ Currently having a lot of free time since I know it will not last forever.

Mondays really aren't so bad when you have no where to be and no plans to keep. If they can continue on like this, I think Mondays look pretty good on me.

Do we really have the same dog?! Marly is definitely a mutt. We have decided he is a dachshund/chihuahua mix, but who knows if there's something else thrown in there too. You can definitely find more photos of him on my Instagram :) I agree with you! I've always been a big believer in appreciating and finding happiness in the small things, and making these lists really helps me to see all of that in my life so much more. Thanks, I would love to sometime! I would love to feature your list too!
