100 Days of Happiness: Week 2

100 Days of Happiness Week 3 FB

Week 2 of my 100 days of Happiness was much more difficult than last week. All of us have been sick, which makes me not want to do anything! That’s pretty much a recipe for disaster when you have 3 boys running around the house. On the bright side… we’re all in the tail end of it now!

100 Days of Happiness: Week 2Day 7: Today was a really good day! I was super excited to hear the mail truck come because I had a feeling that the Baltic Amber Necklaces that I’d been waiting on was here! I was super excited to open them and get them on myself and the baby. Literally within the first 12 hours I noticed a difference with the amount of drool coming from S3 cutting his 2 front teeth. I’ve also noticed that he’s not chewing on everything in sight either!

Day 8: Today I felt absolutely awful! I woke up with a terrible sinus headache, but luckily a couple of Tylenol wiped it out! I also have a really bad runny nose, sore throat and cough. I was officially sick with my first cold of the season. Despite me feeling like crap, the boys and I were very productive and that mad me really happy! We went to Kroger and killed two birds with one stone and picked up some Sugar Cookie International Delight that I’m reviewing for BzzAgent.com (which is delicious by the way!) and used a grocery cart cover that I was reviewing. When we were done at Kroger we jumped over to the new Biggby that opened up in our town… I’m super excited!!! I was very productive on the blog today, which always makes me happy, because it’s not always easy to do when you’re being pulled 3 different directions my 3 silly little boys! 🙂100 Days of Happiness: Week 2

Day 9: Today I literally wanted to do NOTHING. I felt awful, and although I didn’t do a thing with the blog, I did fold a ton of laundry and get a bunch more washed! It felt good to get that weight off of my shoulders. I also found out today that we had won a $50 gift certificate to a really good Mexican restaurant that we enjoy going to, so I was super excited about that!

Day 10: My week started to brighten up a little today. I woke up without a headache, and I could actually breathe! I also found out that I had been spotlighted on the 100 Happy Days Link Party!! THEN, my husband was able to come home a day early, so we were all super excited to see him! I know that one day doesn’t seem like much, but to 3 little boys it’s amazing!

Day 11: Today I was lazy, unmotivated and found out that there was a possibility that my husband had brought home bed bugs with him… super. Luckily, we believe now that the 2 bites he has were from a spider and not bed bugs… but I was happy because I began the declutter/deep clean process when I thought that it was a spider.

100 Days of Happiness: Week 2Day 12: Today we had the chance to take the boys over to my husbands grandfathers house, who we all love to pieces. After we visited for a little while we all went to our favorite Chinese restaurant near his house. It’s always a good day when we get to see Pops and eat Chinese! 🙂 I also found this picture of my husband when he was in his early twenties… what a stud! 😉

Day 13: Nothing makes me more happy than watching the 3 boys play together. I can’t help but smile when I hear S3’s little laugh and hear them all having fun together. I know there will come a time when those little laughs will be gone so I try to soak it up as often as possible!

It’s becoming easier for me to find at least 1 thing that made me happy each day, but I’d like to remember to do it through the day and not just at the end of the day. Hopefully this coming week it be easier for me!

I Challenge You to 100 Days of Happiness

I Challenge you to 100 Days of Happiness

Last week a fellow blogger, Kate from A Kreative Whim, posted something about the 100 Days of Happiness Challenge and I was intrigued. The goal is to find something every day for 100 days that brings you happiness. Each day you take a picture of at least one thing that made you happy and post it to social media.I Challenge you to 100 Days of Happiness

My motivation for starting this challenge is my 3 boys and my husband. I find myself being crabby and stressed out all the time because my husband works a lot, so I’m usually alone with 3 boys and it can start to wear on me. I want to make sure that our boys see me happy more often than stressed out and irritable. I want to be able to show my husband how happy I am that he’s home rather than snap at the first thing that he says because I’m tired, and annoyed. I’m always happy when he comes home, but I’m not always the best at showing it because it’s usually late and I’m both physically and emotionally drained at that point. I want to change that. My goal is to focus on the happiness and not the negative each day.

I challenge each of you to 100 days of happiness with me! Every day I’m going to post a picture of something that made me happy on Facebook with #100happydays and #MessyLittleNest100happydays. You can like my Facebook page here so that you’re able to follow me on my journey and vise versa. I’m challenging each of you to do the same, take a picture of your happiness for the day and post it to my Facebook Page with the same hashtags. This way we can all keep each other accountable.

Every Monday I’m going to make a compilation post of everything that made me happy that week. I’m also going to try to pay attention to any changes that I see in my children, husband and life in general from doing this. I really hope that you all join me on this journey because I think that no matter how happy you currently are, there’s always room for more happiness!
