Things that make me happy

1. I am ALL about breaking up the monotony of housework. I found these free lists from one of my favorite crafty blogs, How About Orange. Just download, print, cut, punch, and tie with cute ribbon. Walah! Now you will whistle while you work because of these happy lists. At least I will. Here are mine:



2. I haven't done this yet, but I am going to because just the picture of this makes me happy. Print your own free bookmarks! And they're cute. From this cute blog.

3. I made this iPhone/iPod pouch. It was my first time doing an applique. It wasn't too hard.



I love birds. Did I ever tell you I had a bird when I was little? Yeah well, my sister's cat ate it while we were on vacation. It was a sad, sad day. This little pouch is dedicated to you, Sunny. **tear**



4. My cats. I KNOW how crazy of a cat lady I am. So we don't need to dwell on that. But seriously, I love my kitties.







5. Cucumbers galore!! From our community garden.



Josh thinks this one should win an award. He is embarrassed because he knew when I took this picture that it would end up on my blog :) **Love ya honey bunny**


6. I've been making LOTS of pizzas recently... like, once a week. And they're yummy!





7. This sexy man makes me happiest of all.

Aunt Hedy- the pizza crust recipe is really easy. It's from ourbestbites.com. Look in the recipe archives for "pizza dough" Seems like a pretty basic yeast dough. I use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 regular flour though to make it healthier :)
