My Happy List

It is fun to join in on the Happy List each week.  It helps me to focus on things that are making me smile or bringing me some happiness each week.  Sometimes the things on my list are simple things that normally I wouldn't think about.  Sometimes they are deeper and more complex.  Either way, it is great to ponder the week and see what I come up with :)

On my happy list this week:

My Bucket List.  I finally started one.  I have always had a, "Things to do Before I Die" list in my head.  Now I have actually written it down.  It may change over the years.  I may add to it or take away from it as life goes on, but for now I am pretty happy with it. 

Burts Bees Peppermint Lip Balm.  I don't know how I would live without it.  It is simply the best lip balm there is.
My Scholarship!!!  I was awarded a scholarship that pays for my full tuition and fees from now until I graduate!  It is also a scholarship that actually follows you to other schools if something happens and you have to transfer.  I know I won't be transferring schools, but it is a pretty great perk to have!  I never thought I had a chance for the scholarship, I was SUPER excited when I got the letter in the mail.  No more relying on student loans to pay for the rest of my degree :)
That's my list this week.  What is making you happy???
