Ten Things That Make Me Happy

Sunday Night Bravo debuted Ten Things That Make Me Happy, a show about things that make Bravo personalities happy.  While I have not yet caught the first episode, watching the commercial make me think about all the small, simple things that make me happy.  Here my top ten:

90s Music - I was originally going to say The Goo Goo Dolls because their music always brings me back to a time when my biggest worry was who I was going to go to the prom with, but the more I think about it, 90s music in general just makes me happy.  I can listen to Jeremy Jordan (all right!) Right Kind of Love on repeat for hours, and I still know all the lyrics to Kriss Kross' Jump.  Before I age myself even more, I'll move on (but if you got the "all right!" reference, you and I can be bffs)

Skee Ball - Every time I am near an arcade, I turn into a 12 year old boy and my eye light up.  My favorite arcade game is skee ball.  I kick ass!  One of my favorite iPhone apps is a skee ball game.

Cinderella Music Box - My dad got me this for my birthday one year and while it started out as a joke, the story behind is very sweet.

Celebrity Rag Mags - These are my guilty pleasure. 

Dusk - My favorite time of day! There is something magical about that soft blue tint that the world gets between day and night.

General Hospital  - I have watched this ABC daytime soap for as long as I can remember.  I tivo it every day.  It is the only show I watch religiously.  I'm still holding out for a Frisco and Felicia reunion. 

Ginger Snaps and Tea - While I am an avid coffee drinker, a plate of ginger snaps and a hot cup of black tea to dunk them in is so relaxing.  It brings me back to when I was a kid and used to have tea an cookie with my mother in the afternoon after school (while watching GH)

Walking Barefoot - I grew up in a barefoot house.  It wasn't because my parents didn't want the scuff the floors or dirty the carpet, it was just because it was comfortable.  Even as an adult, the first thing I do when I get home is take off my shoes. At any given time, no matter the season, a collection of shoes can always be found at the foot of the stairs leading up to my apartment.

Collecting Buttons - This is weird, I know.  I don't know when I started doing this or why, but I save the extra buttons that come with clothing.  I keep them all in a jar.  I think my grandfather did the same thing, so I must of gotten it from him.  I'm a weirdo, but it makes me happy.

Night Swimming- Who does like night swimming? It's the best way to spend a hot summer night.

What are the things that make you happy?
