put on a happy face

What made you smile today?

Sometimes I just like to go through the pictures I have stored on my phone to see what I have sitting in there. It's like having a handy scrapbook with little bits of my life tucked away here and there.

I had a whole bunch it seems. Some sweet, some silly and others I don't even remember taking. But here are some that still make me smile.

My lovely Luna never fails to put a smile on my face. She is just a wee bit clingy and I snapped this picture of her on one of her favorite spots. This is the end of our coffee table which is right across from my computer desk. She will sit there forever sometimes, just staring at me while I click away and the minute I get up she is right behind me. Especially if my next stop happens to be the kitchen.

This ballerina hippo begged me to take her picture while I stood in a very long line at Marshalls one day. Some of her other friends were not so adorable I'm sorry to say, but this little miss was too cute to pass up. I didn't take her home but I remember texting this picture to a friend hoping it would make her giggle too. Don't you just love her pink tutu?

Here is a flashback photo from my birthday last month. I was at the grocery store bright and early, looking for the perfect pink balloon when I saw a cart full of these beautiful roses. I love this picture so much that it's actually the wallpaper on my phone right now.

One more from my birthday. Mini donut cakes from Starbucks. I remember how wonderfully yummy these looked in the case. I really wanted to try them but I was being good because we were on our way to a new cupcakery and I'm glad I saved my sweet tooth for a Pinkdelicious cupcake instead.

And finally my very favorite thing that made me smile is this quote I came across while hanging out at Facebook today....

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle...But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

I think I might frame that quote and put it somewhere I can see everyday! Maybe some place where my husband can see it too, lol.

Who, you might ask said those memorable words?

The incomparable Marilyn Monroe. Who else?

I hope you found something that made you smile today.

Hi Anna,
This post made me smile for sure!
Glad you didn't take any photos of the scary rabbits at Marshalls, now those are way creepy!
Luna looks gorgeous as usual.
Hope you have a wonderful day:)

Hi Anna! Great photos! Smelling the lilacs in my garden made me smile this morning. Their scent reminds me of my childhood. Love them!
Take care,

Love the quote!

A friend of mine just made me smile, just before I came to read this post. :)

Oh I have been smiling today, for sure. And this post just chipped in with the whole smiling shabam! That quote from Marilyn certainly made me grin! I have been watching SpongeBob, so that's had me laughing, as well as my brothers. I've also found a new TV show that I really love called Merlin that I have been obsessively watching (yes, I admit it) since yesterday. That makes me smile :)

I love that picture of the hippo ballerina and the roses and the little kitty :) I love little kitties! I have two myself :)

Well, hope your day is super awesome!

Anna, It was your post that madwe me smile. I had a rough day at work with the day care kids and when i saw your post and the quote I smiled. It is just perfect for husbands to read...some of them need to know this.

Hope you had a great day.

Love this post Anna! Leanne....I too have been a fan of Marilyn's for as long as I can remember...and intrigued by her life and story....I have several books about her and love watching her movies. I saw a movie about her in Target the other day....I think I'm going to go back and buy it. Anyhoo....this post made me SMILE Anna....and I needed it today. I think I will write this quote down and hang it somewhere too....it's good to remember.
