Things that Make Me Happy

I didn't really have a chance to scope out the after Christmas sales thanks to that flu I've endlessly mentioned, but last week I made a small trip into the mall while Wren was at school. It was during a Target run (my closest Target is actually in the mall, not a good combo for the bank account!!) so I picked up a handful of goodies. Here are those treats as well as a few little moments I've savored of late.

I finally got myself a disco ball! (on clearance for $2.64 at SuperStore) I decided I NEEDED one ever since I saw Ashley's. But disco balls don't just pop up all that often, so I had no idea when I would finally make the acquisition. Well, mission accomplished and I am thrilled with it!

{ cute mouse slippers from Urban Outfitters (that I totally intend to wear outside when Spring debuts). Kind of cheesy for a 30 year old? maybe, but I am gonna rock them regardless. Bad pun intended folks }

{ beautiful hyacinth and daffodil bulbs, transplanted into a couple of leftover candle containers. I have a ton of them laying around thanks to my endless candle addiction so I have decided to give them a reincarnation this spring}

{ a perfectly slouchy sweater (found on sale at Gap here), complete with elbow patches that should carry me through the end of Winter }

I love all of these little things, especially the candle jars turned plant pots I should do that!

Your posts...love them, happiness always is right here in the fun lane!

At this moment two little girls and giggles down the hall, pink balloons, crisp sheets, crock pot meals, red wine and bubbly leave me in a state of constant bliss!

Have a terrific evening~

Love candles as well especially ones with beautiful containers. Bought quite a few in the sales. Also I have always wanted a French chair for my lounge and found one on sale so I'm very happy!!

I also bought the GAP jumper, love it. I didn't think I'd get much use out of it as I live in Doha but our winter has been quite cold so it's become a staple.

Hope you are feeling better Holly! That disco ball is certainly fun! It brings a touch of whimsy, sparkle and glamour to a room. You look cute and cozy in your new sweater.
