5 Little Grins Week 16 [Link Up]

Well, it's the last Monday of January and I am still  waiting for my nephew to come! My friend is only 3 days past her due date though...I'm just impatient! I am ever so excited to post my 5 Little Grins though!! 

5 Little Grins


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!!

OKAY, I love Mondays now. 

Seriously, you guys. I always am so happy on Mondays now when I get to remember the things that made me grin in the last week! I hope you have the same feelings! :) 

1. While he was in Vegas bowling, Iman bought our wedding rings!! It was totally unexpected because he was just supposed to try some if only he will show me what his ring looks like!!

2. Two more little baby boys were born this week!! Iman had two cousins welcome their first children into the world. Prayers would be wonderful for our family, as one little boy was born early and he is in the NICU because he isn't breathing well

3. I spent Saturday with my wife just doing whatever - with no specific plans and it was just wonderful! That evening I got to see another one of my oldest friends for her birthday and I felt like a teenager again! 

4. Iman and I got our cake topper and some more wedding stuff in the mail!! 

5. I finally got a paycheck and I am happy to say that I survived one whole month on one paycheck!! 

What are you grinning about today?

  1. Oooh!! What's your topper look like? I bet getting wedding rings was exciting- it sounds exciting! Best wishes to Iman's family and the babies.

  2. YAY to getting paid! I get $80 this month jealous right

  3. aw man! But maybe more blogs will be hiring and one will be close to you!

  4. it says "Mr & Mrs Sangari" with a heart!!

  5. and thank you, i am so worried about the baby in the NICU. I think I am writing them a card tomorrow.

  6. I know why I miss these now. Because of weekly wishes. Every Monday I come here and say why didn't I remember. Thats why! Dec and Jan are my longest months with paychecks. Your school probably does the same. You get paid early in Dec and it has to last until the end of Jan. Brutal!

  7. you can totally combine ours with weekly wishes!!! I am lucky enough that I am not on salary as a teacher because I am from a contracted company. I still get paid hourly and biweekly, but since I had 2 weeks off I had 4 weeks between paychecks. The early Dec to end of Jan is BRUTAL though!!! My mom used to do that until she started saving money each check so she'd get a check for every month, including the summer.

  8. Seriously, it does!! Thank you lady!!!! How is your job going??

  9. stressful. they want you to come to work with the roads icey and it snowing. and they can kiss my ass. read my update
