Happy things to end the week with

It's been quite a week, this third one of January {is that all? I'd swear there have been at least 5 weeks in January so far!} The weather has been wild, and it's allowed us to stay home, slow down and enjoy the little things more than we usually would. Here are a few of the things that have made me happy this week:

Coming inside from the cold, putting on the tea, and changing into a cozy pair of socks that have been warming by the fire. All of this is especially nice when experienced on a surprise day off in the middle of the week!

An impromptu hot chocolate party with my kindergarten class yesterday. All 17 of us tromped down the hall to the staff room to borrow the kettle, then came back to drink our cocoa picnic-style on the classroom floor. The kids were thrilled.

Starting to think about Valentine's Day cards. This set from POSH Chicago is cute, non?

Crazy carpets! Best $5 spent this winter, that's for sure...

Other things making me happy include: a date with my sister at Starbucks this afternoon {weather permitting}, long walks in the snow every day on my lunch hour, Em and I wearing matching red toques while we Skyped,  a surprise delivery of Timbits from my dad in the middle of a blizzard, the new season of Portlandia, an upcoming evening out to celebrate a good friend's birthday, and the sudden realization that there are just 2 months {and one day} left until I leave for NYC!!!


What's making you happy this Friday? Did you make a list? Leave me the link in the comments, won't you please?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Have fun, and stay warm!

  1. Aw the face Sawyer is pulling on that last one of the three shots is just perfect! Rosy cheeks and all!
    What a fun-filled week you have had by the sounds of it - nothing like a fall of snow to do that!

  2. We had a hot chocolate party last week, too! And this week, we made grilled cheese. Anything to keep a classroom of three year old's full and busy during these couped up cold days!

  3. Where are you sledding in the pictures? The boys (all three) look like they are having to much fun - I hope you made a few trips down the hill too! I have found out in the past few years I love sledding (not the walk back up but the thrill going down!
    I love that you had a Hot Chocolate party with your kindies! Thats awesome!!
    Love Ya Kell

  4. My list is called "Things that make me laugh". :)

  5. the spontaneous hot chocolate party made me grin and wish i was already teaching! it's those little moments, isn't it!?


Yay! I love comments.
