Happiness... two scoops of ice cream, finding your skate key, telling the time...

Anyone? Can any of you name that song? I'll be impressed if you can!

Last week I was tagged by Laura and Brittany to list 10 things that make me happy. I've been a bit of a bad blogger lately, but I figured I could make a quick list.
  1. Sweatpants, yoga pants, pajama get the picture. When I come home from work, the only thing I want to do each day is put on some comfy pants. Even on nights when I come home and have lots to do, it's all better when I'm wearing my cozy pants!
  2. Flea markets. We have a local one the first Saturday of each month, and I love walking through the tables trying to find a special treasure. I often come home empty handed, but I don't mind. It's a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.
  3. Peppermint Joe-Joes from Trader Joes. The greatest store bought holiday treat!
  4. My job. As much as I can't stand it sometimes, I really do love what I do. Will I do it forever? I doubt it. With all that's expected of teachers today, I don't think I could do this forever. I'll burn out. But I do love working with kids and making a difference.
  5. My dog, Layla. Duh. As if you people didn't already know that about me.
  6. All of the Christmas cards we've gotten in the mail. Each one makes me so happy!
  7. When we order take-out. We love to cook and we're pretty good at it (if I do say so myself), but I love coming home from a long day and nixing our dinner plans to order Chinese or Mediterranean. Nothing beats that.
  8. When I find coupon codes online before purchasing an item over the internet. I feel like such a winner when I save money. This never gets old.
  9. Getting a great haircut and color. Makes me feel like a million bucks.
  10. Our new house! Like I said in my last post, we've got a lot to do still, but it's slowly coming together! Hopefully we'll accomplish a lot this weekend!
And there ya have it friends. 10 things that make Rachel happy! Feel free to play along!


  1. I just picked up my first box of peppermint JoeJoes - I can't WAIT to open them!

  2. YESS. Peppermint JoeJoes are my ADDICTION. Maybe even better than girl scout cookies!

  3. If I'm not mistaken the song you are talking about is "Happiness" by Lea Salonga. :o)

  4. Isn't it amazing how getting a Christmas card in the mail perks you right up!?! I love them!

  5. Hair cut and colour! Too right! Gotta book in to rid myself of greys before Christmas! Thanks for the reminder!

  6. I wanna and need to try that peppermint joe
