Writer's Workshop: HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!

Thursday!  You know what that means!!!!  Weekly writer's workshop from Mama Kat.

Now, I feel extra special this week, since MY BLOG POST HERE inspired one of the prompts!  Thanks to Mama Kat for the shout out!  

Here are this weeks prompts:

1.) What is your life's anthem? You know...that song that is ALWAYS in your head. The one you'd go to sing first if someone told you to sing a song right NOW. What is it and what does it mean to you?
(inspired by Tattooed Minivan Mom)
2.) We love telemarketers don't we!?! Describe a memorable experience you had with one.
(inspired by 
Literal Dan
3.) How much does focusing on weight affect your daily life?
(inspired by Musings Of A Blond Mom)
4.) Describe in what ways you expect too much from your significant other. Do they deserve an apology?
(inspired by 
Carty Party Of Three

5.) List ten things that make you HAPPY.
(inspired by our irritation at our own complaining from last weeks "Sick Of" posts.)

6.) Ok I was going to end it with five, but Laina just got out of bed as I was finishing this post and I SWEAR she is sleep walking. It's creepy. I keep asking her what she is doing and she's staring at me...but not directly at me...kind of just a centimeter to the left of my head. I KNEW she was a sleep walker. I just knew it. SO! Share a sleep walking story of your own!! (inspired by my scary four year old)

I am going to do the list of things that make me happy!!!

1)  My children.  They are the light of my life.  I love every moment spent with them.

2)  My husband.  He is my soul mate and I am so happy and blessed that I get to spend the rest of my life in his arms.

3)  My family.  I wouldn't be where I am today without their love and support.  I love spending time with them.  It is always a happy time.

4) Pepsi.  Need I say more??

5)  My online support network over at Fit to be Untied.  Those ladies rock and I always find something over there that just makes me smile!

6)  That I have had my surgery and am all put back together again.  Did that just sound like Humpty Dumpty?

7)  That I am starting to feel better physically than I have in years!  It is amazing how good I feel now!  That for sure makes me happy!

8) Intimate texting and IM'ing my husband.  Keeps a spark going!! And keeps the kids from getting grossed out by our comments to each other!

9)  Chocolate.

10) THIS!!!!  And yes you do have to click on the link to see this last BIG thing that makes me happy!!

Now you all get yourselves over to Mama Kat's blog and get to writing!
