So thanks to Raven, I stumbled on HAPPY HOUR FRIDAY.

Here's their illustration

And here is more what my Happy Hour would look like.

So anyway, the question is what makes you happy - as in today -

Here's what makes me happy:
1. NO SCHOOL! I love it!

2. Weekends make me happy!
3. Food makes me happy! Specifically, cookies, butter, bacon, coke and cupcakes - yeah, I think I'm over OD-ing on cupcakes and am ready for some cupcakes.

4. Hearing my kids enjoying playing together. Even if it means that they moved all the furniture out of the family room to race their remote control cars or doling out money so they can go out for wings at 10:00 pm.

5. Fall football weather - cool, crisp evenings with friends watching the game, the cheerleaders and the kids in the stands. I don't know why I get such a kick out of it. Pure entertainment!

6. Getting on my bed to watch LA Ink with Brian and a big bowl of popcorn.

7. Reading a good book (as opposed to reading a stupid book like The Brief (not brief enough) and Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao).
8. A clean house with all of the laundry done. Love it! Don't often achieve it, but I love it!

9. Going to lunch with friends.
10. Watching my kids play lacrosse.
11. Going to dinner with Brian.
12. Knowing everyone is home, safe and sound, in their cozy little beds.
Well, there you have it! It's not that hard to make me happy. It does involve a fair amount of food and the cooperation of my kids! ;)
Have a great weekend!
P.S. It also makes me happy when Blogger isn't acting up. I guess we can't have everything!

I love your Happy Hour Friday list! My son still has school today, but he's home sick and I know it's bad to feel this way, but I got to sleep in! That's a good friday, when you get to sleep in!

Have a great weekend!

It is great that people can come up with so many happy things to list! Who says the world has become depressing?! :)

I love your list. My Happy Hour Friday list would have
1. My husband's home!
2. My brother's surgery went well
3. I love unlimited calling so I can talk to family for four hours and not worry about the phone bill

All looks yummy for a happy hour!!
And we aren't out of school at all for anything Jewish. We do have a large Jewish population... but then we would have to be out for the Christian days, Muslim Days, Etc. Probably just wouldn't work here.

Yeah a Jewish Temple one mile to the East of us and a Muslim Mosque one mile to the West of us....

I think blogger not acting up falls into the category of 'nevah gonna happen.'

My Happy Hour list would be something like this:

Silence (or my music but just no added singing by little people like my children)

A good book - Diana Gabaldon's latest recently hit my doorstep so that would work.

Food would be anything I didn't have to cook myself :)

Great Happy Hour Friday list! I love a lot of those things too. A clean house is awesome, and so is hearing your kids enjoying being together, fall is lovely, reading a good book rocks, and I love it when everyone is home and cozy (and not fighting). I, however, hate no school cuz that generally means I don't get to use the computer all day!

Thanks for the link!

Have a great week,
