A Happy List

It's been a while since I've just sat down and written a blog post without any forethought or planning. I try to keep things on a schedule around here, it just makes it easier to keep track of things, ya know? Plus I'm kind of Type-A sometimes.

But I was sitting here on my laptop answering some e-mails, when a text message from my Husband popped up and said "Nothin' new on the blog for a while, what gives?" lol. I love that my Husband actually reads my blog, but he's kind of a drill Sargent sometimes. He's always ordering me around, telling me what I should be writing about and how I should be handling my blog. Okay I'm kidding -- he doesn't order me around. But he does take an interest in my blog, and for that, I'm grateful. 

Do your Husband's read your blog???

Back to what I was saying, I feel like blogging has become a little bit more calculated as of late. I miss the days that I just sat down on a whim, wrote was I was feeling, then hit publish without any hesitation. Even if it was just one or two sentences or something that is meaningful to me. Or something that really isn't that meaningful at all.

So with that said, I thought I would make a Happy List. And who knows, maybe I'll make a Happy List every week if I feel like it ;-)

THINGS MAKING ME HAPPY RIGHT NOW:

1. I ordered the new iPhone 6! I actually wasn't planning on getting a new phone for a while, but recently, mine started having major issues with reception. So... my new phone should be here by the end of the month! 

2. DISNEYLAND! We are just over a week away from our trip to Southern California and I'm absolutely stoked!! The countdown is on. 9 Days....

3. Nail polish. It a small thing, but I've really been loving nail polish lately. Adding that little bit of color actually cheers me up! Ya know?

4. Amazon Prime. I'm legit obsessed with Amazon. I basically do all of my shopping online through them now, well, except groceries. But the 2-day shipping is amazing.

5. My clients. I don't talk about my photography business a very much here on my personal blog. I'll the first to admit that running a business can be stressful, but I just love the people that I meet and have the privilege of working with.

5. This sweater. I got it at H&M a few months ago and I've been waiting for it to get cold enough to wear it! I am really digging the black & white chunky stripes.

Love the sweater! Am also a huge nail polish fan, I just ordered myself one of the new Essie AW14 shades, can't wait for it to arrive!! My husband reads my blog too. :-) and proof reads posts for me when I ask him to as well. I'm with you on the missing spontaneous blog posts thing. It's great to be organised but sometimes nice to just write something off the cuff xxx

Oh my gosh Amazon Prime <3 And lucky me, I have the student version so there are tons of other deals rolled into it as well! Although sometimes I wonder if it really is saving me money or just facilitating and justifying spending it...

He only reads if I tell him to but he likes it and loves when I write about him.

I'm loving the happy list idea. I may just make one one of these days.

Also, cute sweater.

So excited for your Disneyland trip! I miss Disneyland so much since moving away. My annual pass is still good! You guys are going to have the BEST time ever.

I hope you do more photography tutorials one day! I know they are time consuming, but I love the tutorials you have offered in the past. :)
Have fun at Disneyland!

Chad always has little comments about what I write on my blog. I am like "hey buddy, this is my space, if I want to say something borderline inappropriate then that is my deal!"

Yay for new phones! I feel like mine is on its last legs, so I will probably ask for a new one for Christmas.

Yay for Disneyland!

Nail polish. That reminds me that I really want a pedi before babe comes. I even have gift cards to use, but somehow can't get up the gumption to just go and do it.

I have 2 sweaters from h&m and love them both. And if I had more money, I would go broke from their store I am sure!
I am not sure on upgrading to another iphone. My iphone reception is terrible and only ever get 1 dot. I am not really too sure on the big size of the phone. I seriously miss my flip phones sometimes. I never used to hang up on people like I do now :)
