Random Bits of Happy
* Finding that one exercise that you can do endlessly. I hate to exercise but found out recently that with my podcasts, not music, but podcasts that I can walk, walk, walk and want to keep walking until the podcast is over. The LOST podcast with Jay & Jack that I currently love to listen to, they go on for over an hour as do most of the other podcasts I listen to. It’s euphoric to find that one exercise that you don’t mind doing. Listening to the podcasts I find that I am focusing on the conversation instead of my internal dialog which is usually “oh gosh how much longer is this exercise going to last?!” where as with music my internal dialog can usually be louder than the music and I quit too easily.
* Seeing live bands is something that we love to do but it had been a while and finally we saw a band coming our way that we wanted to see. Manchester Orchestra was great! Full of energy and sounded great even if Freebird had the bass turned up too much. The funny thing is that we went home liking the band that was opening for them almost as much as the band we went to see and so we downloaded the album for The Features and find ourselves listening to them a lot now as well.
* I love Sephora. I love just walking through and buying not one item. Of course buying a new lipstick or eyeshadow is awesome but I love walking through the isles of goodies. I love that they give you samples of the perfumes you like or samples of face wash or creme. They have me hook, line and sinker because of their wonderful customer service, who doesn’t love getting pampered for just shopping!
* IM’ing back and forth with my honey song lyrics to Biggie & Warlock Pincher songs. * Watching 5 girls dressed like gossip girl share 1 single cup of frozen yogurt. * Mmm going out for Mochi Frozen Yogurt! * Lions * Going out for drinks and posting it to Facebook so my girl would meet me out and having her show up but say she didn’t see my Facebook post….she just KNOWS! Mad ❤ for my girl H! * Finding the perfect summer sandals – hello black cage gladiators on sale that will look perfect with summer dresses! * While shopping having boys dressed as grapes bump past you!?! * Yes, shopping makes me happy whether I come home with anything or not! 🙂
