Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Friday: 6/7/13

4 Comments

So, you know how there have been some weeks when these posts have only pictures of my kids? Well, I’m turning the tables on you this week. Not because I planned on it, but because when I went to gather up all my pictures from the week, I realized I hardly took any. Like I have three pictures from the entire week. Three. And two are of things I took pictures of at the store to remember to buy them next time. So this leaves one to share here. It’s a good one, though. Ready?

The one good thing I managed to take a picture of that made me happy this week:

That, my friends, is how you roll through Walmart!

And some things that made you happy:

This is S from Does This Match. If you don't follow this little lady's fashion adventures on FB, you're missing out. I think she and my 5 yo would be best friends if we lived closer! Here she is ready for her preschool graduation and waxing poetic on becoming an orca whale teacher. LOVE HER!!!

As always, thanks to everyone who submitted some happiness! Please keep it coming.

Quick programming note: There will be no SHSFGF posts the next two weeks while my family and I prepare to and actually move. (We are moving from CT to VA.) Don’t fret, though. Next week and the week after I will be sharing some of my favorite posts from some very special guest bloggers. W e will return to our regularly scheduled programming the following week. So save up your pictures please!

Fridays on Raising Wild Things are Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Fridays! Since parenting can sometimes suck the  life out of me, I wanted to do these posts as reminders of the good, the great things that happened during the week amid all the crazy, exhausting, sometimes frustrating, sometimes maddening, sometimes head-exploding moments that seem to linger in my memory and can put me in a mommy funk. What makes you happy? Please share!
