Happy Lately List

new york whitney.jpg{we heart it}

Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned that I was going to start making Happy Lately Lists a regular feature on this blog?  Well I am sticking to that resolution, and am so excited to share my first reader Happy Lately List.  Enjoy!  (And for details on how to have your list featured here, see the end of the post.)

Whitney's Happy Lately List

Taking long walks and feeling the energy of New York

Planning a nice, warm New Years in San Diego with my BFF, Andrea

These ruffled Anthropologie boots (dutifully added to my Christmas wish list)

Misty morning hikes in Brooklyn's Prospect Park

Finding a bottle of Veuve champagne on my desk, left as a "thank you" from a colleague

All of my wonderful friends who have visited NYC this fall

My company's new "jeans-can-be-worn-all-the-time" policy (score!!)

Pumpkin <fill in the blank with your choice of delicious baked good>

Getting to wear my cropped TopShop bomber jacket from last year on a regular basis

Tights, tights, tights. Need I say more?

Deciding to go as Lindsay Lohan for Halloween again this year (this is my fifth time channeling LiLo - I'm hoping to go as "Prison Lindsay" this Halloween.)

Making my mom's homemade chicken pot pie and shepherd's pie

And of course, my first giveaway! The lovely folks at CSN have offered me the opportunity to give away a $35 gift certificate to one of my lucky readers. Entering the giveaway is easy - all you have to do is: 1. Follow me - it's easy! - 2. Once you follow me, leave me a comment about what's made you happy lately.  (For a second entry in the giveaway, give Allison here a follow and leave me a second comment that you are following her.) Ta-da! And you're done. The giveaway will be open until next Tuesday, November 2 at noon. A winner will be chosen at random.

Thanks Whitney for sharing your Happy Lately List and be sure to stop by A Toast to hear about more of Whitney's little celebrations.  (And just to clarify, the giveaway is Whitney's not mine, so leave your giveaway entry comments over at her fabulous blog.)

If you want your Happy Lately List featured, just send me an email (smartandsassywithsprinkles@gmail.com) with TEN things that are making you happy lately.  I've already got several fabulous lists from readers in my inbox that I can't wait to share with you.  These Happy Lately Lists are reminding me just how contagious happiness is!

My little 22 month old nephew was with me when I went to COSTCO the other day. He just had so much fun looking at all the toys. The is usually such a smiley young man.

Realizing I've finally gotten into a work routine has made me supremely happy lately!
Also-- did CSN contact you via email? I'm trying to figure out if this email in my inbox is spam or super exciting, haha!

this is a beautiful list - how lovely that she gets to spend New Years in San Diego (my former home & a gorgeous place to be!)
I will have to check out her blog :)

Hi! I am a new follower via Whitney and am already loving your blog :)

Something that makes me happy: waking up before the alarm goes off, drinking coffee, and taking in the morning before I start my day :) (This rarely happens, but when it does- it's nice!)

(ps- Speaking of happiness- I am doing a yearly 'challenge' at http://12monthsofbliss.blogspot.com/

It's one (fun, easy, and just for you) challenge each month. I like to think it helps me on my path of bliss.. hoping it does for others too! October's challenge is almost over but I would love for you to join in on November's!) :)

What's made me happy is getting a wonderful box of Halloween decorations in the mail and decorating with my 13 year old son.
