The Happiness Project :: Crazy Color Dreams

I was having a hard time coming up with a happy thing for today's post.  I don't know why...it's not like I'm grumpy or anything.  Actually, I'm in a really happy mood - even for a rainy day.  I think I'm just a little brain dead.  So, I decided to get showered & dressed, and tackle the Happiness Project a little later. 

Getting showered & dressed first thing in the morning is a big deal for me.  I usually don't do both of these things in succession - let alone at the beginning of the day.  Now don't go getting all crazy on me.  I get dressed everyday.  I promise.  And I get showered at least once a week every other day or so every day.  But I don't get dressed.  You know...presentable dressed.  But today's a special day.  I have a blind date.  But more about that later.

Anyway....  I got showered, got dressed and was putting on the finishing touches and there it was!  One of the things that makes me grin like a kid in a candy shop everytime I put it on.  My Franck Muller Crazy Color Dreams watch.  The Man bought it for me for my birthday a few years ago and I love love LOVE it!  I also love that it's a knock-off.  Don't get me wrong.  I'm totally worth +$35k retail price of the real deal -- I'm just way too cool to wear that kind of money on my wrist. 

So?  What's making you happy today (other than the fact that I took a shower, of course)?

I had one of those days on Sunday - wish I had found something like that as it might have turned it all around! Love the watch too and it made me smile as did your post and hope you have a wonderful happy day.

1st, I almost never show two days in a row...it's better for my hair/skin, plus I tend to find showers much too time-consuming.

2nd, a thing that makes me happy is traveling! It makes me feel alive and connected to more than my own little corner of the world. :)

That is a cool watch! I think I would smile every time I looked down at it.

Have fun on the blind date!

Your watch made me smile even before I read your post :)

What a cool watch! That would be perfect for me, I never get anywhere on time!

Have a great Day, D.

Very cute watch. I felt like you with the "getting dressed" on maternity leave. I had clothes on everyday, but I never really got dressed.

I was a stay-at-home mom too. Nuf said. Shower, eat. Shower eat. Eat wins.Watch is awesome BTW.

I would feel like a total bad ass in that watch. I'd offer to tell everyone the time while wagging it in their face.

Thank you for following me, I am really flattered (is it me or the hunky Anders!!!! - only teasing).

Ha, Ha, Ha (love your comment Teddy Started it), you did get it right, Anders is the grown up!!! Yep, Anders is one very hunky guy, he is my very own Spartan!!! (also, I think he looks a bit like Simon Baker in the Mentalist!).

The minute I laid eyes on him I though "oh, my God he is just so beautiful" - actually how we met is a really funny story in itself! Anyway this is the handsome piece of hunk I see every day and I still think "how the hell did I manage to bag such a beautiful husband"!

Today there are some more photos going up of my hunky husband, mini hunk Dexter, the hunky K9 Marvin Gaye and the demure and ever so beautiful K9 Carly Simon!!

Thanks again for following and hope you enjoy hangin' around. As I said on Leigh's post, if I could charter a plane for her (and therefore have an excuse to gate crash) I would have flown her to Fantasy Island (70's show), I of course would be RMontalban and Dexter would have to dress up as Tattoo (he is small you see) and Anders, well he would be the hunky cocktail waiter after all he is very easy on the eye (I can just see him cringing)!!!

I'm happy today because I'm getting my Once Bitten to soothe the chigger attack on my feet! And some Bzzz Off to keep from happening again this weekend! Woo hoo!
