Half Full Friday!

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 each 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!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list.  Thanks!)

~I'm happy because...
I bought a new laptop! 

I also bought new shoes!

I got all of my textbooks except for one!  It's only available from the school and it's out of stock until Monday.

Starting on Monday, I'll be able to avoid my noisy neighbors!  They have a really tiny, tiny backyard and for some reason, they insist on spending every waking hour out there and can sometimes be very, VERY loud.  I swear they must not work because they're out there all.the.damn.time!

I got to see Horrible Bosses this past weekend, which I loved!

I'll be attending a baby shower for a friend tomorrow!
*****
I took pix of my new laptop because I'm just whack like that.  I put it on a white towel because my kitchen table is black too and I was afraid it would blend in, otherwise.
I won this decal forever ago from one of Katie's many, many giveaways and just held onto it because I didn't have a laptop back then and wasn't really sure what to do with it.  Click to enlarge.
And then I got so excited about my new shoes that I hadda take pix of them too!  I was actually looking for sneakers but got these instead.  That's cool though - it gives me another reason to go shopping for shoes!  lol
I think they're kinda cute!
*****
Speaking of giveaways, which I was a little earlier, here's one you might be interested in.  But don't feel like you have to enter or anything - the less people that do, the more chance I have of winning!  If you want to get in on this deal though, you better hurry - it's ending really soon!

Noisy neighbors are the worst! I like your lap top and your new boots. My mom is super into boots. She is not that into other kinds of shoes, but she LOVES boots!

Your pal, Pip

Love your new shoes and your laptop!;)
I am trying to sell my house, so now I do not think I can buy anything new for months to come, as all my money are used for gas, aw.;))
And why exactly can you start to avoid your neighbors today?;)
Hope you had a nice weekend,

Good luck with school and enjoy yourself... and don't work too hard @ work :)

I love half full Friday... I read it on non-Fridays too because it just reminds me to be grateful.

Are you back in school yet??? If not, soon, right??
