Back in November, Serena tagged me to list things that make me happy. I don't do many tags and this one slipped my mind until I saw another blogger do it this week. Not going to lie, ideas for posts have been scarce lately, especially as it seems that my reading and knitting have been progressing slowly. So there it is, a list (though a rather predictable one) of things that make me happy. :) I hope you all are having a lovely week.


  1. Love your list. :) And that beautiful yarn.

    1. Thanks! That yarn is destined to become a pair of socks soon. :)

  2. What a great list! I have yet to see Monk (but from what I've heard, I'm sure I'll love it), and those Frostbeard candles have taunted me with their intriguing scent descriptions and awesome names for years. Other than that (and my unfamiliarity with some of your song picks), I can heartily concur with all of these happy things from experience. :) Also, I want some baby goats of my own so badly! They're absolutely adorable. Do you currently have little ones running around?

    I'm taking off the second half of the day from work tomorrow along with Friday so that I can get a head start on my plans for another soap-making weekend (I make soap to sell at a local general store during our summer tourist season). Your music list looks like a a great place to begin for my soundtrack for the next few days. Last weekend I was in more of a movie mood and had Austenland, Leap Year, and Northanger Abbey playing in the background. :)

    I hope you're having a great week as well!

    1. I think you would love Monk! :) We have two goat kids born so far and more to come. They really are the most adorable baby animals ever.

      I hope you like the songs. :) I'm glad I'm not the only one who listens to music while I make soap, ha. The Secret Sisters are usually my soundtrack for that. Those three movies are awesome choices to have as background noise!

  3. Baby goats are the happiest little things ever! And that Shire candle looks amazing. Thanks for doing the tag -- this is such a lovely list!

    1. They are! I love their sweet little noses, ha. Thanks for tagging me! Sorry I'm a bit late. :)

  4. Aw, this is so cute, Kristin. Love your list. Three cheers for Narnia, Austenland, and Pride and Prejudice. I'm right there with you, friend. :)

    1. Thanks. :) Austenland is my go-to happy's so random and hilarious that it always makes me feel better!

  5. A very happy list, indeed! :) Those are all some of my favorite TV shows and movies, and I am checking out some of those songs right now! Lambs are at the top of my happiness list - just a few weeks and we should have some! I do love baby goats, too. :)


Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to read them! :) I reply to each one, so be sure to check back, especially if you asked a question.
