All about Love today ....

It was fun to put some of the things I hate yesterday.  Love when I feel like I'm not alone & get the "I'm totally with you on that one"

& some of you asked me how the 'no complaining' thing went?  Well, it lasted for about 2 minutes.

I'm not even joking.

I was at work & my boss called because Humana was canceling his policy.  It's my job to keep all invoices paid- & that was paid... so what was the problem?  Anyways, sit on a phone for 15 minutes with recordings from a health insurance company & then finally talk to someone who is clueless & see if you don't complain.

But what I did notice was how easy it is to complain about things. 

I started over again as soon as I got over the health insurance company bozo's & tried again... & I think I lasted another 10 minutes.

WOW... this is hard....

By the end of the day, I was VERY aware of the complaining & trying to reel it in.  & I think that is the point - to be aware of complaining.  I'm going to try again today & know I'm going to complain, but I'm going to see if I can complain less...

& in honor of all this, I'm changing my tune... I'm making a list of things I love.  Yesterday was the BLAH day... today is all about rainbows & butterflies... so here we go.  A much brighter list.

Things I love:

So what are some things that make you happy?


  1. YAY I really like this post and 2nd pretty much all of these happy things! I love God, my family, Disney, dogs, Once Upon a Time, Harry Potter, Universal Studios, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fall decor, football, all the lights GREEN on the road, singing Broadway music loudly, and more!

  2. Love this post! I love most of these too!! I love baby giggles, a perfect fall day, lazy rainy days, the first snow with a cup of hot coffee, themes/holidays, finally laying down after an exhausting day, a good book, and of course clearance!

  3. One thing about complaining is, we can always work on it to be better! I have come down with a little cold, and at first this morning all I wanted to do was complain, but then I realized if I was going to get sick it was better that it come this week than next for me, so maybe I should be grateful... Maybe:) LOL
    Love your list of 50 loves!!!!

  4. You lasted about a minute longer than I could ;) I love that you have so many things that make you love! Right now in this very moment I am loving the Spotify coffeehouse station!

    1. I'll have to check it out... & drink coffee while listening :)

  5. I just LOLed at the part about maxi dresses = crotchless yoga pants. Because yes.
    This post makes me happy. And good on you for making it 2 minutes without complaining because I don't think I'd go that far. If I held all my complaining inside, I would probably explode.

    My favorite things? Hugs from my kiddo, hearing her sing the songs from Frozen, random flowers from my husband, and definitely crossing the finish line!

    1. I'll sing Let it Go in honor of you today :)

  6. I love all these things! Right now the top things I am loving are cupcakes (duh), being an aunt for the first time, and moving into a new apartment and starting over fresh!

    1. Being an aunt is the best.... be the cool one. They'll love you forever :)

  7. disney! lol. i love the gifs and singing loudly with the radio is THE BEST.
