Weekly Recap #4 | Things That Made Me Happy

things that made me happy #4

Hello beauties!

I hope all of you having a great weekend so far. “Weekly Recap | Things That Made Me Happy” is another series where I will be sharing all the things that made me happy. My goal is to spread some happiness and gratitude of little or big things that are happening in my life, and encourage others to share their happy/grateful things of the week.

Sometimes all it takes is gentle reminders of things that make us grateful or appreciative. I mean, we live in a world full of senseless violence, poverty, famine, and tragedy – reflecting on the positive, I find, makes me open my eyes a bit more to appreciate the little things…Don’t you agree?

Feel free to share things that made you happy this week. Here are mine ♡

Getting A Pedicure
It’s not often that I get a chance to treat myself to a pedicure. But when I do, I try to enjoy every minute of it. I typically go to a local spa here in town, called The Little Day Spa. They offer many great services. I have been a client of theirs for about 3 years now. They take a very good care of me and have a very knowledgeable and pleasant staff. I’m definitely a happy woman every time I leave this place.

Celebrating Father’s Day With My Husband
Even though Father’s Day was on Sunday we had to celebrate it on Saturday, since my husband typically works every Sunday. We had a family day together. We all went out for lunch to Hungry Howie’s, one of my husband’s favorite spots to eat. They have all you can eat pizza buffet and you just can’t resist trying all different ones. The rest of the day it was all about resting at home, playing board games and watching movies together. He said that he enjoyed his Father’s Day and that he is very proud to be a dad.

Spending A Day At The Beach
Summer is here and I promised myself that I’ll be spending more time at the beach with my family this season. I love the beach, it’s definitely one of the reasons we moved here to Sarasota. We have quite a few to choose from, but we usually go to the one closer to home Lido Beach. This time it was only me and my youngest daughter who went. We had an amazing time, as always.

New Fitbit
I received my new Fitbit in the mail last week. Since my last one broke 6 months ago, I was very heartbroken and just couldn’t get to buying a new one. So my hubby surprised me with one. I was jumping for joy! Fitbit is the only thing that motivates me to exercise. I lost 35lbs. last year by just walking and eating healthy. And I love competing with other Fitbit users. By the way, if you don’t know what Fitbit is, you can read about it here. If you a Fitbit user, I would love to add you to my circles. Just let me know in the comments section below or Tweet me.

Taking A Day Off On Monday
You know when you have those days when you wake up on Monday morning and don’t feel like going to work. Well, this week was one of those Mondays. It was nice to take an extra day off and not feeling guilty about it that your called out. Most of our doctors were on vacation anyway, so my manager didn’t mind. It’s nice to be able to enjoy the little things in life.

    I love the idea behind this post and how positive it is. This week I booked a little trip away for next week and that definitely made me happy 🙂
