Today and tomorrow I'll be taking part in blog challenges hosted by Showered With Designs and Happiness Blog. Today's topic: Things that make me happy.
Hula hooping has become a huge part of my life since 2011. The exercise is a major plus. I've lost 100 pounds since I started, and it feels amazing. What doesn't feel amazing is saying I used to weigh 100 pounds more, haha. The endless possibilities make it worthwhile. Just when I thought I've discovered every trick possible, 29373298 more pop in my book to learn. I'm currently working on how to nose hoop.
My kitty Gypsy was also brought into my life in 2011. I just love the picture of her cuddling Hello Kitty (really shows we're a great pair). As a kitten she used to attack her toys on her hind legs doing a "Godzilla" style attack. She occasionally does it now, it's the cutest attack you'll ever see!! Even when this bundle of fluff decides to sit on the dishwasher, I still love her to death.
Audrey Hepburn films never fail to make me smile. If I'm ever in a horrible mood, just pop one of these in and I'm happy in a good 5-minutes. Breakfast at Tiffany's is probably my all time favorite out of the collection. I just love her bathtub couch!! Another great film is Funny Face. I absolutely love the famous dance scene.
Detroit adventures are the best. The picture is taken from Heidelberg when my sister and I took a visit a few years back. It had (before the arson) houses painted with clocks and other various unusual art. Two years back my friend and I took an adventure hooping downtown through mid-town. I happen to get into a "hoop-off" with a random guy dressed in 70's attire that came out of a bar with a crowd of people.
What's on your happiness list?
