Happy List

It's that time of week again! Time to link up with the ever-fabulous Mamarazzi and share some happy!

Having nice enough weather that we could take Monkey to the park this week definitely brought some happy.

Having this girl all to myself while the other kids are at school has made this a very happy year. This week we've had lots of time vegging on the couch while we recover from the Portland Plague together.

I'm happy to have my other 3 children involved in things that enrich their lives, and help them develop their talents. Currently we have Cowgirl and Pixie starting spring soccer. Cowgirl is excelling at her piano lessons, and Pixie is getting ready to start. Bookworm is continuing to develop his talent with the violin. He has a big state-wide Junior Concerto/Solo Federation that he is performing in next Saturday. He will be judged, and is very nervous! He also was selected to be on the graphic design team that is designing the T-shirts for our school's Pedal's for Hope bike-riders this year.

My hot pink glitter toes make me happy. Can't wait to be able to wear footwear that shows them off all the time!

Being surrounded by beautiful mountains makes me all kinds of happy. I love that I can look in pretty much any direction and be greeted with a sight like this:

What makes you happy? Head on over to Mama's and link up!

Your view is incredible! I enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountains around here but it's nothing compared to the Rockies. Wow!

Love you glitter toes. Hope you continue to have good weather so that you can show them off!

Paula is right. Your view is amazing.

And I love the hot pink glittery toe nails.

Have a fabulous weekend!

I love that picture of you Monkey {that's Monkey right} she looks nothing less than thrilled to be all cuddled up with her Mommy!

Nothing beats freshly painted toes and those Mountains are just gorgeous! I couldn't handle the cold that goes with them though.

Love the toes!! I think I'd just sit and stare at my feet all day. ;) The pic of you and Monkey is so sweet!!

Those aren't the Rockies, those are the Wasatch. They are gorgeous though. My happy toes are blue. no glitter, just blue. Glad to see the kiddos are doing so well though.

I do miss the Utah mountains!

I'm happy that we're all getting well again!

Macey said...

I love all these things!
Your kids are freakin' talented. I don't have mine signed up for anything!
That speaks more to MY laziness than their lack of talent. LOL

Conni said...

wow your view is amazing, but I have to be honest, I love my flat prairies!!

Your children are very talented, enjoy them

Thanks for sharing

Erika . . . with a K said...

Love your happy list! Beautiful weather and mountains... I cant wait to move back to the mountains!

Unknown said...

Minus the inversion right? LOL! When we were in Utah, I missed my mountains. Mt. Rainer and Mt. Baker. Now that we are in Portland, I love seeing Mt. Hood and on a good day Mt. St. Helens. To me, those are mountains. LOL!

I can't wait till I get down to one kid at home. Wait, who am I kidding. I can't wait until ALL my kids are in school!

Warm weather is a blast! We've had it too and have loved playing outside! Bring it on spring! I'm waiting for you!!

Pink glitter toes make me happy too! Can you come paint mine? Kthanks.

Emmy said...

Love the picture with you and your daughter. When I first moved to Utah from the Midwest I was just blown away by the mountains. They looked like some fake backdrop

Mireya said...

Beautiful weather is awesome! I love love love your view! And cute toes, I can't wait for sandal season either!

shortmama said...

Those mountains are gorgeous!

Myya said...

Love the swing picture, shadows are so cool! That pic of you & your sweet girl is adorable. Glad you are feeling better from the Portland Plauge... what an impression our State made on you huh. Sorry about that! Wait, it isn't my fault, it is totally MImi's! ha ha ha

YOUR mountains are aaahhhhhMAZING!

Sami said...

I almost forgot how pretty the mountains can be!
Glad you're starting to feel better! I can't wait until next year when it'll be just Boo and I at home. I don't even remember what it's like to have only one kid at home...
What'll I do with myself?
