here's to happiness {by Jackie}

just because the thanksgiving season is said and done doesn't mean that we no longer have things to be grateful for. so here to continue on with the "here's to happiness" tradition is the lovely...

10 things that make Jackie terribly happy
1. good hair days that just magically happen
2. Skype calls from my deployed loverboy
3. riding my bike around campus and being known as "that girl with the cute bike"
4. turning off the gross overhead lights and spending my evenings in the glow of white Christmas lights
5. The Office marathons with my awesome roommate- we're almost to Season 7!
6. breakfast for dinner when i go home to visit my family
7. a little sister best friend who keeps getting more and more fun to hang out with every time
8. chocolate in any form. namely chocolate ice cream, hershey's chocolate bars with almonds, and homemade chocolate chip cookies
9. pretty nail polish that brightens my day everytime i look at it. i can be having a fat day and a bad hair day all wrapped in one, but it's hard to have a bad nail day
10. beautiful words. i'm a sucker for pretty quotes and love poems
