Half Full Friday and Blog of the Week

Source:  weheartit
Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in every day.  Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list.

~I'm happy because...
I drank my weight in alcohol last Friday and Saturday and didn't get a hangover!

I had a wonderful time hanging out with my friends this past weekend!
 
I got my OPI nail polish in the mail from Sephora in less than a week!
 
I won not one, but TWO, of Katie's giveaways!
 
I also won one of  Doris' December giveaway's!
 
I had two participants for last week's Half Full Friday!

I'm still behind on blogs.  Sorry.  Doing my best to catch up.  Slowly but surely...

This week's Blog of the Week is a fairly new blog.  He left a comment on someone else's blog and left a link to his blog.  The name of it made me curious so I clicked on the link. 


Scott started this blog last month.  He's a recent college grad with military experience and so far, he's not had much better luck in finding a job than I have.  He's currently working at a temp job that he doesn't enjoy.  This blog is all about his attempt to find a better place in the world for himself.  I can definitely relate and only hope I don't find myself in his same position once I graduate.

Here is what is in my half full glass... I only got 4 1/2 INCHES of snow... not 87 inches of it.

Mr. Pip said...

Happy Friday! That's pretty cool that you won all these giveaways! Maybe your luck is turning around!

Your pal, Pip

Katie said...

WHOOHOO!! no hangover. Now that IS something to be thankful for!!

Doris Sturm said...

Did you know, Sprinkles, that the effect of alcohol in a woman's body is much more severe than in a man's? Not just because a man is bigger, but because - apparently - womens innards are more sensitive to booze; therefore DON'T RUIN YOUR LIVER - YOU MIGHT NEED IT IN ANOTHER 10 YEARS!

I can lecture you because a) I've been there - done that and b) I am a mother ;-) and c) I'm only saying it because I care!

...but whatever you do, drive safely! Better yet, hail a cab!

With much love and affection
Doris and Gizzy
p.s. your package is in them mail!

It's a great idea to find something every day to be happy about. It is so easy to dwell on the bad things.
Today we had to pay £50 for a new car battery - but at least it got the car going and we didn't have to pay a mechanic 4 times as much to fix it, lol.

Hey Wylde One!
I love your half-full Fridays. You've had a great week. I bet the nail polish is fun...don't inhale those fumes. Could be worse than a hangover! BOL For my half-full Friday...I got to have a bed-cuddle with Mom this morning! Dad was in the shower so it was only a half-full-of-peeps bed.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge

Alien said...

Congratulations on winning those giveaways. You deserve it.

Yours,

Hee! Hee! I don't mean to do it on purpose but somehow, it always seems to be "Half Full Friday" when I come round to visit!

Looks like you had a great week!
