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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
