Happy Thoughts

I’m way overdue on sharing days 11-20 of my #100happydays project! Even though I’m behind on sharing it with you here on the blog, I have been keeping up with the project overall. Some days are harder than others, not because there are not things to be happy about but because I occasionally lose track of time. That being said, I don’t want to become another statistic and not complete this photo challenge because I “don’t have time.”  If you’d like to read up on the #100happydays project check out my original blog post here.

A beautiful bouquet of flowers for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary.

If you follow my blog, you know I went home a few weeks back for my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary. This is a bouquet they had on their dining room table and it was just such a sweet reminder of family and everyday love.

I'm a pretzel addict.

I’m a pretzel addict.

They have an Auntie Anne’s in the St. Louis airport and I’m not strong enough to walk away from its pretzel-y goodness. No matter what new treat they create at Auntie Anne’s my all time favorite is still an original salted pretzel, and I got the last one before they had to make a new batch. It was sweet victory!

There will be one less picture than usual because for some reason I must have deleted it, but the picture in question was of my new Ikea storage unit for my makeup with its container store organizers. It was a very proud OCD moment for me and I’m sorry I don’t have it here to show you. But if you’re at all interested in how I organize my makeup, then let me know in the comments and I’ll do a post on it.

Bubble Wrap!

Bubble Wrap!

If you couldn’t tell from the title of my blog, I’m a fan of bubble wrap. I’ve been hoarding it lately because I’ll have to move soon. And I have no idea where that end destination will be, which is stressful. The stress in turn leads to popping the bubble wrap. It’s a vicious cycle. But I still love me some bubble wrap.

May Ipsy Bag

May Ipsy Bag

It’s no secret that I find great joy in my ipsy subscription. I’m only two bags in to my fandom here but I can’t recommend it enough. Sharing the love for ipsy through various social media is definitely part of the fun.

All hail Target.

All hail Target.

My long standing and truly terrible joke is that if capitalism were ever to hit an extreme where citizens were asked to worship a business or store, then Target would be my place of worship. I cannot go in there without buying something. I love their clothes, the entertainment section, the home decor…basically any and all sections of Target are awesome. Going to Target just makes me happy.

GODZILLA

GODZILLA

I love being near a theater. A group of friends and I live close to a great AMC theater and we’ll regularly meet up to go see the latest films. I went into Godzilla with no serious expectations and left the theater pleased and entertained. Going with a good group always helps too.

Mmmmmm Coke

Mmmmmm Coke

I know it’s bad for me. But it tastes so freaking good. I love having a cold Coke in the middle of the afternoon. It’s the little things in life that often make me happy.

Chilling with Chapman's Panther

Chilling with Chapman’s Panther

On our last week of school my friends and I walked around the main campus of Chapman and took pictures . This is one of my favorites from our wanderings. Moments like this are the kind you’re grateful for long-term: when you’re just goofing off and don’t think much of it at the time.

Homemade chocolate peanut butter cake.

Homemade chocolate peanut butter cake.

I love to bake but this beautiful piece of cake was not of my creation. A friend’s boyfriend put this masterpiece together and it was easily one of the most delicious, moist cakes I’ve ever had. So freaking delicious and it made my night. Now if only I could get the recipe.

That’s it for my latest installment of #100happydays. If you’d like to follow me on Instagram for more daily updates I’m @caitlinemccann. Thanks for stopping by!
