Happiness is Contagious

In less than 8 days I will be turning the ripe age of 26. Turning that age has made me a bit nervous but I am really excited to welcome it with open arms. In honor of my upcoming birthday I want to celebrate! And I want your help to celebrate.  I've read her happy list and one of  my old roommates hosted happy lists on her blog and I loved reading them. I am a sucker for lists...especially happy lists!

So in honor of my birthday I want you to send me your happy list. Anything that makes you happy and giddy, I want to know about it. I will post your list here on The Grass is Greener and on my birthday I will be giving away this lovely flower hair clip/pendant made especially by yours truly! If you are a guy and flowers are not your fancy, I will send you something from my happy list. What do you think? You know you want to do it! Send your lists to layla12(at)gmail(dot)com. I can't wait to read them!

Happy upcoming Birthday!!! I love happy lists too! I kept one on our adoption blog to help me not focus too much on what wasn't making me happy. It only shows, I think, 10 items at a time, but there are a lot on the actual list. I will send it to you.

I made a happy list on my blog. It seemed like such a good idea, I just couldn't resist.
