5 Little Grins Week 3 [Link Up]

5 Little Grins

<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" alt=" 5 Little Grins " width="350" height="246" /></a>

We'll go ahead and say it: Most people think Mondays suck / are the worst / should die a fire-y death. I'm sure you get the picture.

We've all had our fair share of bad Mondays and bad Tuesdays and just plain ol' bad days. Instead of focusing on the bad, what if we focused on the good things?

What if we focused on the little things that made us smile today, yesterday, last week? Could our whole attitude change? In time, would we find that we're having more good days than bad?

Cassandra, Paulina and I would love for you to join us on our weekly link up counting at least 5 things that made you smile in the last week. We could start our Mondays on this positive note!

Of course, this is all about encouragement, so hop on over to some other blogs and leave a positive note and make a new friend!
The Rules! (These are really just kind suggestions)

1. Follow your hosts: Cassandra, Raewyn, and Paulina!

2. Link up your post that includes 5-ish things that made you smile in the past week

3. Comment after you link up

4. Go visit some other blogs and make some friends!

5. Have fun, and don't forget to smile!!

1. Yesterday, I got to see my niece on her 2nd birthday. I spent a ton of time in the bounce house with her.  I left before she opened presents, but apparently as soon as she saw this skirt I got her, she put it on. 

2. My mom posted this on my FB yesterday. This is not actually our cat, but it looks exactly like him and he does this stuff. He loves water so whenever someone goes in the bathroom he runs over and tries to get in as well. 

3. Have you heard of the organization Miss Representation? They've recently renamed themselves to The Representation Project. They sent me an email about Take Back Halloween and I LOVE this idea. 
Annie Oakley was one of my favorite characters as a kid.
4. I don't have the photographic evidence, but Iman sang karaoke for a solid hour or two last night and I had so much fun!!! Karaoke is one of my favorite things. We went with my new coworkers and it was nice to be so accepted.
5. I had a wonderfully productive and happy day on Friday. It is nice to have a few real days off. I think I'm going to go down to just one job and enjoy it / explore my creativity!!
What made you grin this week??

  2. I just love this idea! I'm working on my life management operation, which includes better blogging, but I just found out about your new linkup. Will definitely participate in the future! So fun! :) Hope you have a fabulous week!!

  3. Thank you!!! I just love her so, though really she's my friend's daughter, not even a real niece.

  4. Yay!! That makes me happy!! Thank you and I hope you have a fabulous week!!

  5. Your niece is a cutie!! :) That cat picture is hilarious, your cat really does that?? thats funny. :)
    The costume looks so cool, are you going to dress up like that, or sticking with Wonder Woman?? :)

  6. Thanks for the link party! Now following via GFC and Facebook!

  7. My mom's cat does that everytime, even to guests. He is a turkish mow and the breed loves water. At his foster home, he was kept in the bathroom. Now that he has free reign of the house and back yard, he still loves the bathroom best. He jumps on thr counter because he prefers running water. I give it to him because I consider it his work out. LOL.

    I just love my little niece. She is so smart and sweet.

    I wish i had seen this costume earlier! I have all of my WonderWoman stuff but maybe next year!
