Reasons to Smile

I know a lot of us have been feeling kind of glum about the snow, and stressed about midterms coming up. So instead of writing something anything serious, I thought I’d kick back and share five little things that make me smile with you lovelies. :)

  1. Daisies- I remember the time I told a friend of mine that daisies were my favorite flower. In a tone of disgust, he answered “Daisies? Why not roses, or even sunflowers?” I know a lot of people probably prefer the more intricate and expensive kind of flowers, but daisies are my absolute favorite. They have a simple, sunshine-y kind of beauty that I just can’t help but love. Plus, remember that scene in Shrek 2 where Shrek and Fiona run towards each other in that ginormous field of daisies? It wouldn’t have been nearly as romantic if they had been stabbing their bare feet over on a giant field of prickly old roses. So yeah, daisies are the best. :)

2. Dancing- I just love to dance. I am definitely not the best dancer around, but heck, I enjoy it to pieces. Whether it’s zumba-ing, line dancing, or just acting like a maniac to “Wannabe” in my room, I love having any excuse to shake my gluteus maximus. And speaking of gluteus maximuses, this song just cracks me up:

3. Snow- I know it seems like we can't get enough of it lately, but I'm talking about when there's a fresh layer of snow. Like when you're walking home from an evening class, and there's that brand stinkin' new powder on the ground, and you can't help but kick it up all over the place by shuffling through it with your brand new snow boots and make a snowball or two and throw it at nothing in particular. Or... maybe that's just me. Sometimes I forget that I should probably grow up soon.

My sister and I back in the day. Snow is fun.
4. Valentine's Day- I know it's still a little ways away. But, um, I love it. I refuse to jump on the S.A.D (Singles Awareness Day) bandwagon. Especially at BYU! There's just something so stinkin' cute about seeing the guys carrying around flowers for their gals, and seeing everyone dressed up in bright and happy colors. And it's always fun to poke fun at the conversation hearts. And the cheesy Valentine's cards:

5. Nerf Guns- I thought it would be fun to get my dad a nerf gun for Christmas, and the poor guy got to play with it for maybe ten minutes before my sister and I stole it from him. Nothing beats running around with a Nerf Gun, pretending to be a secret agent, and trying to get the bullets stuck on the most random things you can find in the house, like cabinets, family portraits, ceiling fan blades... have I mentioned that I haven't learned how to be a grown up yet?

So now it's YOUR turn! What are some things that make you smile? :)
