50 Things That Make Me Happy
I was having an issue with writers block until I saw this tagged list on Facebook.

With the year coming to a close I wanted to end it on a positive note. Whether you year was good, bad, or just meh, I think we can all agree there are some things in life that can keep us happy no matter what the year is. I feel that a lot of us focus on the negative and are stressed so easily, (I’m really talking about me) that’s why I am so excited to do this! So here are 50 things that make me happy:

My family:

My parents and brother are cool…i guess..no, really, i love them!

My boyfriend:

He is truly amazing. He will do anything to make me happy, but all it takes is his cute little face, his nerdy, random science knowledge, and a few smooches.

 My friends:

My friends and I

As I have gotten older my friend group has begun to shrink and I am completely OK with that! I have a handful of close friends and couldn’t be any happier about it!


I love the excitement of getting onto a plane, taking off, and landing on the other side of the world.


If you know me, this is what I LOVE TO DO.

 Hosting dinner parties:

Since I love to cook, I love to entertain. My friends usually come over weekly for a home cooked dinner.


Thrillers, mysteries, trashy love novels, comedies, fiction, and non-fiction. The list goes on.


Nothing beats a dance sesh. Who cares how you look, just move!

The sound of rain.

The smell of rain.

Seasons in general:

I currently live in San Diego where seasons are non-existent. I love the feeling of the seasons changing. It is always so exciting.


No explanation needed here.


I want a little Shiba Inu and am desperately missing my family dog Ria and our late Simba.


Floating the river.

 Summer BBQ’s:

It’s not summer without a backyard BBQ with all your friends.

Going to the movies:

I love all types of movies, and yes, I have HBO and Netflix, but going to the theater, kicking my feet up on the chair in front of me with a big tub of buttery popcorn with peanut M&M’s….AMAZING!

Biking by the beach:

Living in San Diego has it perks, such as the “bike-highway” on the beach. Nothing like seeing the sand, sun and ocean as the wind blows through your hair. Your bike just isn’t complete with a basket in the front 🙂

Chocolate Milkshake and Fries:

Chocolate ice-cream with salty, crunchy fries dipped into it….I.AM.SALAVATING.


If you don’t know what this stands for, that’s ok. It’s my guilty pleasure.

21 Along with #20:

Keeping up with the Kardashians:

These shows make me happy by being entertaining and mindless. Everyone needs a little break sometime.


Chili Powder.



My friends think that my taste buds are burnt off; I think they have no taste for flavor.


My mom’s cooking:

No matter what she makes it always seems to taste good! She can make a plain turkey sandwich taste like gold. Mom, how do you do it?!

Spending time alone.

Green Tea.

Chicken Curry.

Getting a gel mani.

Getting a pedi.

Getting my hair cut.


She gets me.

Love, Actually:

(see what I did there?)

Love, Actually

Kind people.

Funny people.

Giving/Helping other people.

Best feeling in the world!

Going to London and eating yummy Indian food.

Top Chef:

 Cooking shows make me happy. I think you get it.

Reading a book for the  first time:

Reading can take you so many places. I love getting lost in a god book. 

New mascara:

Falling asleep on the couch with my boyfriend.


My dad’s non-sense jokes.

Learning about food from my brother.

Doing my daily PIYO workout to help keep me fit!

Taking my bra off at the end of a long day.

You reading this.

 My blog.

My future <3

Now you know me a little better. What are some things that make you happy?

Have a great new year! xx
