humpday happy list.

when i sat down to write this humpday happy list for september, i looked back at my past lists to see how often i had posted the same things. it turns out that this week marks the one year anniversary of my humpday lists. and what a year it has been.

these lists have brought me so much happiness over the past 365 days. i started writing them because i realized i needed to focus on the good more than i focused on the bad. and when i had crappy weeks, these lists got me focusing on the things that inspired me instead of the things that were bringing me down.

sometimes it felt almost impossible to come up with five things that made me feel good. but i forced myself to look for inspiration in what was happening around me (or on pinterest). and it helped. it always helped.

here’s to another year of humpday happy and looking for the good around us!

humpday happy list 9-25

1) humpday seasonal cocktail: caramel apple vodka.

okay, so i don’t know what could be a better fall cocktail than caramel vodka and apple juice over ice. maybe a hot version? yea…a hot version in a travel mug smuggled into a late season baseball game. i think i could get into that.

2) humpday recipe: iced pumpkin coffee cake.

and sally does it again. i have made a couple of her recipes, including her original super crumb coffee cake and her chocolate covered strawberry cookies. she is a baking wizard, and has a cookbook coming out soon, so you should definitely keep an eye out for it…except make sure you have people to share with, otherwise you’ll eat it all yourself, and that can’t last very long.

3) humpday style: this fall outfit.

is this not PERFECTION?? keri russell can do no wrong. and this outfit can do no wrong. and now i need to go buy oxfords so i can be this comfortable and fall-chic. the end.

4) humpday obsession: you know what.

i’m sorry, but at least one humpday happy list per year needs to include this candle. don’t hate, i have a problem and i’m in no rush to fix it.

5) humpday fun: twins game this weekend.

Mister Man and i get to have a little date this weekend, in the fancy seats at target field (the tickets were a gift from his boss…thank you dave!). you guys, the fancy seats are right behind home plate and include free food and free drinks!! i am going to eat my weight in popcorn and brats and maybe even licorice. who knows, stuff could get crazier than i expect!

    A year? A whole entire year? I don’t think I’ve stuck with anything that long. Seriously. Don’t even get me started on what this means for my life and my conscious and my upcoming crazy plans…. :) You make me happy all days, especially hump days. (Inappropriate? Ahhhhh, feels so good)

      girl, this is a metaphor for my life. i started out strong, started to resent it, then found a good balance that worked for me. you can do it!! (except maybe not the shopping thing…no one should not shop for a whole year. buy at least one thing after your fast).

      hump days are the best days. bazinga!

    woo! Way to stick to this for a year…sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in crappy things. But thinking of happy things every week is such a great idea!

    And love free tickets to sporting events!! I got free tickets to the Browns game this week with seats in the 11th row! so pumped.
