Ten Things to Smile About This Month

Ten Things to Smile about is a monthly meme I started after a rough month where I knew I needed to look back and find something good.  So look back and find ten things, everything from a pretty sunset, to something you accomplished, to a something you bought-- anything that made you smile. Would love for you all to play along.  The linky will be open for TWO WEEKS, so plenty of time to link up.

Last Tuesday Every Month



Ten Things to Smile About This Month: May

1. Celebrating Mother's Day in all it's imperfect glory! 

2. Soccer is done!!


4. Girls Night while the boys were camping (though my husband may have threatened to never allow a girls night again based on how much money we spent shopping...opps!)

5.  The end of a successful school year for my kids

6. Seeing my bestie CA Girl and meeting a bunch of other bloggers for free dinner! 

7. Ryder pushing his friend on the swing

8. Attending the Elevate blogging conference and remember why I blog

9.  Going to Knott's Berry Farm two days in a row! Love having season passes

10. My kids sleeping always makes me smile... even if he did take over my spot in bed.


What made you smile this month?

The linky will be open for 2 weeks, so plenty of time to join in!! Please spread the word, love reading your lists!




Since it is Tuesday I am linking up with some other great Tuesday meme's.  IA and Shawn's Talk to Us Tuesday and Stacy Uncorked's Random Tuesday

    1. Yes, I am really not that big of a shopper either-- but every once in a while I get the bug and I apparently had it bad that night.
