Good Stuff – 10/13/10

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

The two of us have been blogging for a few months (at momblogwork.com) and each week we do a “Good Stuff” post. We’ve decided “Good Stuff” is moving over to the mama mantras blog so welcome to the very first Good Stuff post here!

Here’s the thing: studies show that the practice of gratitude can increase happiness by 25%. We’re all for increased happiness, right? Call it a gratitude journal, if you want, but these little lists are a great to go back to months/years from now. It’s the little things that make life wonderful – especially for us mom’s! We’ll list out the little things that are making us happy. Feel free to join us in the comments.

Karissa’s Good Stuff

  • Before bed yoga with Margeaux
  • Crockpot dinners
  • Lunch with Andre
  • Daydreaming about designing some new stuff
  • Quiet days with Brady-B
  • Bellydancing, the newest obsession in our house, complete with finger cymbals
  • Listening to and watching the kids play together all weekend

Megan’s Good Stuff

  • Watching the Chilean miners being rescued.
  • Going to the pumpkin patch with the preschool.
  • Planning for family pictures next weekend.
  • Rey being able to use his words to describe how he’s feeling…even when he says “I’m mad…at you!”
  • Spontaneous date nights with Ernest (Thanks Uncle Jon!)
  • Indian summer
