If it makes you happy

If you're joining in on "Blog every day in July," then today's prompt is "Things that make me happy." Side note: a full list of the prompts can be found here. Now, even though Faith, Allie, and I asked you to not link up unless you follow the prompts, I am going to disregard that rule because I did a nearly identical post less than two weeks ago and I just really don't want to be an outfit repeater a blog topic repeater. Kate Sanders would totally call me out in front of everybody and I just don't want to deal with that right now and plus I have a bunch of other stuff I want to tell you.

Like, let's just talk about THIS for a moment.

Oh, that's not mine. Do you remember Jacey? One of my best friends? My roommate until about a month ago? Well, she went and moved across the country and got ENGAGED over the weekend. I am SO excited for her and Justin and I really wish she was here so we could plan her wedding over a feast of bacon waffles and mimosas. I also wish I could tackle her a la Michael Scott, but instead I'll settle for just texting her and saying, "OMG YOU'RE ENGAGED" over and over and over.


Also another one of my old roommates got engaged over the weekend and another friend announced her second pregnancy. The highlight of my weekend was taking an amazing nap on Saturday and then beating Keith and his parents at Shanghai so all in all it was a pretty big weekend for me.

Oh oh oh, something else that makes me happy is when my niece is all decorated dressed up for holidays, like Independence Day. Example:


Let me just take this opportunity to apologize to you for not taking any pictures of fireworks. I know you are probably dying to see yet another firework picture and I just don't have that for you. In fact, I hardly took any pictures this weekend because I am a failure. On Friday we went to Lake Arrowhead with his parents to watch the fireworks (if you don't know what Lake Arrowhead is, well, it's just a big lake in some mountains and it's really pretty) and it was so much fun! It was insanely crowded (no surprise) but we had great seats and the show was wonderful. And his dad took this photo of us that is not awkward or uncomfortable at all and I think you can really see the love.


I really wanted to tell his dad, "Ok, can you please tell me when you're going to take the picture? And can you also take a few pictures from different angles so I can pick the best one, and can you take one of us in front of the lake also? And can you please tell me if I'm hunching and look like an idiot so I can straighten up?" But I didn't say anything and instead you get this gem of us sitting in lawn chairs from the 70s.

On Saturday there was a fireworks show at another lake, so we decided to go to "our" mountain which overlooks that lake and watch. It was supposed to be really romantic, and we decided to take his dogs. The fireworks were loud and did you guys know that dogs don't like loud fireworks? It was hilarious. His beagle started out by howling at the fireworks and then she burrowed behind my back and just shook for the rest of the show. His golden retriever just shook and kept trying to hide. We decided that's probably exactly what it's like to have kids: annoying and not romantic.

Then last night I left his house way too late because we were watching Jeopardy and these shows about the 80s and 90s and I was learning things I didn't know before, like how Bill Clinton plays the saxaphone and how Kurt Cobain was the lead singer of Nirvana (I honestly had no clue), and then on my way home I had to stop at a gas station and get a can of Diet Coke because nectar of the gods and I thought it was a great idea to take a selfie. This weekend was just a weekend of awkward pictures. Also I didn't get home until almost 4am and I ended up getting less than two hours of sleep and I think I'll fall asleep at my desk today please don't tell my boss.

I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster .

  2. I am really glad you didn't post a picture of fireworks. Because I think everyone else on instagram had that covered ;)

  3. Ha, I saw the ring pic and got all excited for you for a second, and then I kept going and switch my excitement over to Jacey, yay for her! And then also, did you get the shirt in your diet coke selfie pic at Kohl's, cuz if you did, I totally have the same one, which makes us twinsies. And I guess technically, since it looks the same as mine, even if you didn't get it at kohl's, we're still twins, cuz I decided. So that's that.

  4. So I saw your post title and started singing "if it makes you happyyyyy, then it can't be that baaaa-aahhh-aaadd" and now that annoying Sheryl Crow song is stuck in my head and it's your fault. Oh and then you tricked me and I thought you were engaged and I got really excited. OH and also, what is shanghai?

  5. I’m still a little bit mad at you for giving me a minor heart attack when I clicked over and was visually assaulted with that picture of a ring that I had heard nothing about. Bahahahaha you guys are not touching AT ALL in that picture his dad took; I wouldn’t have even noticed the hunch. Umm and your French manicure looks amazing holding that Diet Coke. Teach me how to dougie do a French manicure?

  7. FIRST OFF - I of course can't get this Sheryl Crow song out of my head now. So thanks for that.

    Second of all - I thought I was going to have to punch everyone. Because HELLO WORLD - everyone knows what fireworks look like. We also know that when you take them on your iphone they look totally shitty. God, so OVER that.

  9. If I hadn't remembered that you said awhile back that she found evidence of an upcoming proposal I probably would've been tricked into thinking it was your big news too!

    Also, I die over the cuteness of your niece dressed up for the 4th!

  12. the duck face diet coke selfie is my favourite picture of you, ever.

  13. yayyy congrats jacey, but that was really mean because the picture that showed up in bloglovin was that ring and i was all, omg she got engaged, but then i remembered that keith doesn't know your blog address yet so it's probably premature for an engagement.

    being tired at work is THE WORST, but desk naps are the best!

  14. I got REALLY excited when I saw that ring picture- but congrats to Jacey! So glad you got to witness both sets of mountain fireworks.

  15. Like I've heard of Lake Arrowhead (maybe) but I'm disappointed I didn't get to see it.... so that's where we are today. Also, 2 hours of sleep? HOW DID YOU SURVIVE TODAY?

  16. I literally LOL'd when I read, "Ok, can you please tell me when you're going to take the picture? And can you also take a few pictures from different angles so I can pick the best one . . ." Don't we all do that? No wait, let me see that pic. No, that wasn't good. Take it again. Nuh uh that one was horrible. My second chin was showing. Take another . . . isn't this everyone's norm? haha
    And Diet Coke IS nectar from the Gods. My sister and I will both vouch for that :)
    I'm enjoying your blog and look forward to future posts!

  17. That really is a pretty ring! Hey, sometimes a good nap is needed. Your big weekend sounds kind of like my weekend. Except for your boyfriend. And his parents. And the road trip. So actually they don't sound like each other at all. But there were fireworks! That much I remember!

  19. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage ,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

    My name is Mark Davis, my family and i live in NY USA.It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr brave really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr brave castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr.Brave can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his email:bravespellcaster@gmail.com ,or kindly visit he website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com .CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
