So everyone does these awesome posts where they talk about things that make them happy or blessings for the week and I want to do the same!
Welcome to Sunday Happies! I’m working on the name. It’s been a long week and my job is draining all my brain power.
We’ll start small because happiness is a little hard to come by lately… see above about my job and my poor brain. I don’t know if this is the place to complain about a job just yet but know that I’m taking steps to change my situation because I always believe that if you’re not happy then leave and if you can’t leave then drink beer.
But I digress. I only have 2 things this week that made me happy. Baby steps.
1. First, I’m always late with fashion trends. I mean late! I mean, I only started wearing boob tubes a few years ago and I’ll probably start wearing rompers in 2020. So I don’t know if these are out of fashion or if they ever were but I’m in deep love with these capri workout pants. I rarely find clothing I like and capri pants in particular are worrying because I’m 5’1″ and I feel like they’ll make me look chopped. But these make me happy. I only have 1 pair so far and I’ve been living in them. Shopping for clothing stresses me out so when I find something I like, I keep it forever. Yes, I still own clothes from university. Please excuse the lack of molding on the floor there. Our house is a fixer upper than has yet to be fixer uppered.
2. I made a diaper cake for my friend’s baby shower and I’m extremely proud of it! I’m a closet crafter. I’ll only do it when I have to but I love it. Someone else made a diaper cake too but *whisper* I think my little guy is better. Meet Julio.
doesn’t the other guy look not too happy to be at the shower? Aww Julio.
Anyway, there you have it. These are 2 things that really made me smile this week and I’m clinging to the smiles… Ooh! I think that’s a better name for this series of posts. Sunday Smiles!
If you’re wondering how the baby shower went, I think it went well. It’s my 3rd shower since we found out we’re infertile and my first shower since our BFN. I first have to mention that these two having the baby are extremely special to me. I can’t explain it but you know those friends you have who are just awesome. They’re of the first few people who we told about our troubles and the support was exactly what we needed. They fell pregnant right off the bat and she took the time to send us a very heartfelt text which I’ll never forget. They’re having a little boy and I’m a little jealous of him having the best parents lol. Anyway, I think the relationship you have with the people who are pregnant around you definitely determines how you’ll react to the pregnancy. I’m so thankful for their friendship and I’m so genuinely happy for them and not even a little sad for me. Well I could still be on a high from the party but It makes me smile. Hmm, I think that’s another thing to add to Sunday Smiles. Yay!

I totally agree that your relationship and love of your friends can overcome the pain of infertility for a moment. A dear friend of mine had twin boys last summer after our second miscarriage, and all I felt for her was pure happiness. Because deep down, despite our feelings of loneliness and despair, we wouldn’t wish infertility on anyone, especially our closest friends. It’s just hard feeling singled out by fate. I’m hoping for such good things for you.
PS- that diaper owl is awesome!!!!
Thanks! Julio for the win!
The diaper owl is freaking adorable!! Great work on making him and for being there to celebrate your friends joy. Very courageous of you!
And I live the idea of Sunday Smiles! I’m so excited to read every Sunday now. 🙂
Thank you! Today was really a good day. I’m liking Sunday Smiles too. It’s of course inspired by 100 happy days.
I think it’s a great version of the 100 happy days! Anything to make us remember the happy / smiling moments. 🙂
That is the cutest diaper creation I’ve ever seen. I’m absolutely in love with your owl. And I commend you on being there for your friend. I’m glad that you can be happy for her. I think I’m in love with the Sunday Smiles thing and might start something similar soon.
Yeah! Get in on it! And thanks, it wasn’t that hard to make either 🙂
Your diaper cake is CLEARLY far superior to the other one! 🙂 Also, those pants are super cute. Also, also, I have no idea what a boob tube is, so there you have it!
Hahaha. I jumped on the boob tube band wagon way too late. It’s something only confused 16 year olds should wear in the rebellious phase.
Love your owl – you’re so crafty I’m jealous! Please remember that bouquet you once promised, I’m holding you to it!
omg of course. we must talk colours. I’ll try to bring it with in july.
I love your “Sunday Smiles” idea and that diaper cake is seriously cute!
