This Week in Happiness {Week 24}

You aren't a jar of nutella

That made me laugh out loud the first time I saw it.  I grabbed the image from pinterest – which isn’t a source, but I haven’t been able to track it to an original source/author, if you know.. let me know who it is, let me know so I can give proper attribution!

If you want to make some Nutella, though, here’s a great, easy recipe for Homemade Nutella.

On to the happiness


  • Thanksgiving has come and gone which means it’s time for all the Christmas music!!!  My favorite album is the Pentatonix Christmas album, Ptxmas from last year.

  • Someone on FB linked to Adam Sandler’s Chanukah song and it immediately transported me back in time to being a teenager and giggling hysterically; I’m now mid 30’s and still singing along. 
  • The Celtic Women Holiday station on Pandora is one of my favorite things right now, and it was one of my favorite things last year, too.  In the not holiday season, I’m listening to The Celtic Women station on Pandora.  Basically, I have a thing for Celtic Music.

  • The Dove Peppermint Bark candies are in the store and I’m having to try really hard not to buy all the bags!!!!
  • I can’t wait to try these scrumptious looking No Knead Garlic Parmesan dinner rolls from Shugary Sweets –mmmmmm garlic


  • Thanksgiving this year was all about happiness.  Being surrounded by family, giving Thanks for family and friends, and celebrating my mom feeling the best she has in years (suck it cancer!!!), and celebrating the fact that she was able to decorate for Thanksgiving, host Thanksgiving, and cook all the food for Thanksgiving!!!!!

  • Monkey and Princess climbing the trees that I climbed when I was their age(s)  = happiness

  • This Mother/Daughter Collaboration from Karen and Alexis on Karen’s blog: Chookooloonks.  Karen is an immensely talented, wonderful, passionate, inspiring woman, and following her journeys makes me want to be more and do more.
  • Popping over to my friend Amanda’s blog today and seeing her adorable face showing up in a video inspired by me.. well, it made me laugh. <3 Amanda <3 

What’s making you happy this week?

  1. Haha that Adam sandler song is awesome. My youngest brother impersonates him all the time. Last year, my son (17) had my brother’s name in the Christmas grab bag. So for his gift he played that song on the guitar and sang to him. It was hysterical!!
    Anyways, love all things in this report. Thanks for including my rolls!!

  2. It’s funny you mention Adam Sandler. I showed the kids his Thanksgiving song so all last week it was “Turkey for me and turkey for you”! The hilarious part is we don’t eat turkey for thanksgiving, but they loved it nonetheless 🙂 Sent you an e-mail yesterday about coming to visit the orchards. The fruit and nuts are harvest ready and delicious. Have a great week.
