The finer things in life

I wont lie I spend a lot of time feeling sorry for myself lately, it's a horrible quality and makes you very grumpy. I don't recommend it unless you own stock in Hersheys. So as I read through other peoples lives and remember how fabulous my life is (my brain doens't play the pitty party game as well as my feelings) I just wanted to write them out to remember them.
-Having a brain. At least it ruins the pitty party so I don't want to have them.
-The cutest kids, ever
-Healthy kids
-Creative kids-there is never a dull moment at our house
-The I didn't do it face. How can you stay mad with it
-Tivo (it's sad I know but I love TV it makes my heart happy)
-Our new(ish) house that comes with fantastic neighbors. For the first time in years I actually know some of my neighbors. I am horible at meeting new people I get super intemidated but our new ward is full of rockstars and I love it.
-Not throwing up because I am pregnant. This is huge I think everyone who is pregnant should have this gift.
-Facial expressions. I love when my kids make faces that remind me of pictures of me or faces my brothers made. it's fun to take little trips down memory lane.
-Family. I have fantastic family (and friends that count as family) that let me vent, or let me live vicariously through them.
-Love. Having people to love and people who love me are essential in times like these.
-Don't laugh-Twilight. I know I have turned into to my mom and her Harry Potter craziness (I am not that bad) but it's fun to live life through books.
-And of course the gospel. What more do you need.
Yay for happy things, and happy posts :)

Good job getting out of the pity party slump. Everyone's got them sometimes, and getting out is a challenge at times, so I commend you. :)

I love it when my niece makes faces that remind me of my siblings... so funny and cute! I love little kids! Also, I'm with your mom on the Harry Potter boat... but not with Twilight! Remember when you were obsessed with Clay Aiken? I just thought of that.
