Happy Hour Friday

My good friend OTIN and I had this wonderful idea to focus on Happy things on Fridays, and so a few weeks ago Happy Hour Friday was born. Hit 40 made us this awesome picture to go with it. Be sure to stop by their sites and see what they are happy about today.




  • I am SO happy that today is Friday because I have worked hard all week and I do NOT have to work today.
  • I'm also SO happy that I didn't lose any followers this week since I've been kinda MIA. It's not on purpose tho, it just working, working, working...
  • I'm extra happy that I even got a NEW follower. Welcome to my humble little blog. Okay, maybe not so humble... but still welcome.
  • I am super happy that my BRAND NEW GREEN WASHER AND DRYER are broken. Well, the washer is anyway. AND it's brand stinking new in case you didn't see that. Grrrrrr. The guy was supposed to come out today and fix it, but the part he ordered was not the part that was broken, so now it'll be next TUESDAY before it's fixed. Why does this make me happy? IT DOESN'T! Instead of going out on a real date my hubby and I spent the evening at the laundry mat doing a weeks worth of laundry. WONDERFUL.
  • It made me laugh when my favorite tech called me Ms Rappy Pants. It's cuz I was singing Baby Got Back in the pharmacy -- no there weren't any patients in there -- and I think I was doing a pretty good job of it. Click here for the lyrics.
  • Here they are. Those goofy boys. Don't they make you laugh too?


  • I'm happy that hubby and I went to a new sushi place yesterday. It's called Wasabi and it was freaking awesome. I think I need more.
  • I'm happy that I'll be spending Saturday with my friend and we are gonna scrapbook all day. No boys allowed.
  • I'm happy that I'm learning some cool songs on the piano, but it's getting really hard and I don't feel like I'm doing well. But I'm sticking with it and hoping one day it just clicks and I become awesome.
  • I'm happy that I'm a SUPER STAR cuz I was in the newspaper last week. And in the paper in a town about 30 miles away from us. I think that makes me an intercounty SUPER STAR. Of course people keep asking me why I didn't smile or why I wore what I did and why didn't my hair look better. It was for Junior Service and Habitat for Humanity. And it was a Saturday morning. Sheesh. Being a SUPER STAR is hard work...

  • Well I guess that's it for me...
  • What's making you happy today?

I have a free keyboard from a friend. I need to set it up and play. Not as great as a piano...

but I can not complain about free!!!

Good effort at pulling out happy thoughts!!!

I love all the reasons that make you happy, especially singing aloud in the pharmacy... you've either got a great voice or lots of guts, girl!

I was MIA for almost a week and lost two followers. Jeez! If they can't take a joke... but, thankful to say I gained three more since that happened... or maybe they just signed back up?

Gaston Studio said...

Oh, I forgot to mention what's making me particularly happy today... that our group is paying off the lousy contractor today and getting rid of that jerk! This makes me VERY happy.

Leah said...

Sushi and scrapbooking! It all sounds so fun.

Barb said...

I'm happy you're a superstar. I'm happy you have lots of guts (see GS comment above! hee hee). I'm happy that you get to crop all day tomorrow (but I wish I was going with you!)

Ice Queen said...

I love how you squeezed the broken washer into happy hour Friday. I guess that's the hangover part. Ha! Have a good weekend!

Jay said...

Way to be positive! Even about the broken washer.

Green-Eyed Momster said...

I love that you posted about what makes you happy. I'd do this too but I feel like I'd be crashing your party and I'm not a party crasher. I know that you and Otin probably wouldn't mind but I've been following Hit 40 for quite some time and we haven't officially "met" yet.

I'm so happy that I know you! I didn't know any SUPERSTARS before! Congrats on being in the paper. I think the Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful organization and I can't wait until they come and build us a bigger house....LOL!! :)

Hugs!!

I'm new to the Happy Hour Friday, I'm happy because my kids don't have school today, I don't work, it's raining, so we have the whole day to spend together :)
scrapbooking, sushi and being a super star are great reasons to be happy!!!

CatLadyLarew said...

Wow! You're famous! I can say I knew Mrs. Rappy Pants back when she was first being discovered! Happy Friday!

Marion Williams-Bennett said...

The fall leaves are amazing today - I think it's peak here which is making me happy. That, and the image of your singing Baby Got Back! Happy weekend!

otin said...

I still say that guy looks like Rupert from Survivor!!

I like a person who is happy that her major appliances are broken! lol

The scrapbooking thing. Tell it like it is. It is just an excuse to drink wine and talk about men!!! haha!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Love how you immersed your broken washer issue into your Happy Post. :) Hubby and I used to have dates at the laundromat when we were first going out...it was actually kinda fun. Especially people watching. ;)

Have fun with your scrap booking friend tomorrow - niiiiice that it's 'no boys allowed'! :) Drink lots of wine! :)

Barry said...

Wasabi and Sushi in the same sentence. Now I am happily craving sushi. I am now a fan of you, and Happy Hour Fridays. Lisa

♥ Braja said...

But which one is YOU?!! I can't line any of them up with your profile shot, which is way too distant to even start adoring you :)

O said...

I love sushi too! I hope there was some fine wine on your girls only scrapbook day and keep coming with photos of your crazy co-workers! Do they know you are making them famous?
