I was having a low day recently, some of which has to with this very cold winter, some of it from not getting out of the house, etc. The winter in Utah is really hard for me. It’s hard for me to find any joy in it. Anyway, I decided that day to do something that made me happy. So I went to the grocery store with the girls to grab a few things and also picked up 2 doughnuts (to share with Bammer) and I bought a rose that was on sale for .99! I was craving sweets and I love fresh flowers!
I also took some pictures of my beautiful girls because they are my pride and joy! I decided that I wanted to be happy. I made the decision to be happy rather than let my self pity and the sadness of winter swallow me up. This is a big step for me because I often just do the latter. I also decided to think about some things that made me happy during the winter. So I’m going to share them with you!
What Makes Alexis Happy
I tried to do a cute picture with my girls in their matching sweat suits, but Bammer would not have it! Here’s how they turned out.
But at least I got this cute one of Lowie. Her smile gets me every time!
Especially in winter I really crave chocolate! Who am I kidding, I always crave chocolate! And I really enjoy citrus flavors too. Here’s a picture of a Lemon Chiffon Cake that I made over Christmas. I’ll be sharing that with you soon!
Is anyone else addicted? I’m almost caught up! I think I’m just one episode behind in season 3. But I’ve heard you can access the whole series since it already showed in the UK. I may need to jump on that!
I pretty much drink it every day! I buy the huge cans from Costco. It warms my soul!
I do love fall and winter clothing. I just think sweaters, boots, leggings, and scarves are adorable! I recently did a post about colorful leggings and tights HERE.
I love to read now that I can read for pleasure again. School kind of sucks the fun out of that. It’s still hard to find time to do it and I have a list of books I want to read, but I love it when I get the chance!
I love weddings! And my sister is getting married in two months! We went dress shopping recently and I get to help with some of the decorations for the reception. Am I thrilled? You bet I am! I love making things especially when they have a purpose. And of course it’s always good for the blog. 🙂 I’m super excited about it and I know the wedding will be just wonderful! I’ll be attempting to make this soon.
Most of my family has birthdays in the winter. And I love celebrating birthdays! I’m already starting to think of fun things to do for Bammer’s birthday at the end of February. I think we’re going to do an Elmo themed party because she just loves Elmo. I’m starting to search Pinterest for some fun ideas.
So I guess winter isn’t all that bad when I have these fun things to do. I just need to 1) Remember to do them and 2) Choose to be happy!
If you’re like me and hate winter, I hope you find some joy in it too! It’s not an easy thing, but we can work on it together!
