So much of the month of December is focused on shopping and wish lists and extravagance, but this week I was inspired by a few graphics from Invisalign that reminded me to stop and SMILE. I decided to make a list of 31 reasons to smile this month – one reason for every day of December.
Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for an amazing Invisalign giveaway (for you or for one of your kids) that you don’t want to miss!
31 Reasons to Smile
- It’s boot season! And I just happen to have 2 new pairs of boots this year.
- My kids are healthy and happy (most days!).
- I get to spend the holidays with all 5 of my kids (plus all of my husband’s side of the family).
- Speaking of the holidays, I am spending a week on the beach. Toes in the sand, anyone?
- This is the first full month of having my new url on my rebranded blog. And I still love it!
- I recently discovered a love for pecan pie…and since Christmas is coming, I can make MORE of it!
- Warm blankets and good books.
- The kids are doing great in school this year and no one ever asks me to help on math homework!
- Cast iron cookware. Definitely my newly discovered kitchen love for 2015.
- Necco is halfway done with her Invisalign treatment, and her teeth are already looking amazing.
- I live in a beautiful area with so many fun things to do.
- I love my job (my boss is pretty amazing).
- I got a new phone and I love it.
- My husband has been letting me sleep in til 6:30 am while he gets the older kids off to school. Makes such a difference!
- I got new business cards.
- Star Wars is coming to theater this month!
- December means lots of cookies, and cookies almost always make me smile.
- Christmas music makes me happy – at least a few weeks of it every year.
- In a few months, I will have another driver in the house again! I love having a teen that can run errands for me.
- I ordered Christmas cards before December 1. Proud of me?
- Because I made a bunch of fabric gift bags last year, I don’t have to wrap anything!
- In December, it’s not only acceptable but expected to make homemade caramels and English toffee.
- Christmas movies on tv!
- I get to celebrate my oldest daughter’s birthday (which is the 24th) with her!
- I took new pictures of each of my kids (I haven’t done that in ages!).
- I’ve made a few new friends this year that I really treasure. It’s amazing how much of a difference a friendship can make.
- My kids are all on board to have a Christmas of experiences rather than things.
- Snow looks great in pictures.
- I look great in scarves.
- My kids have good friends.
- My boys give me hugs every single day.
