~happy pills~


my husband asked me if I had forgotten to take
my
"happy pills" 
the other day
when I was a tad bit grumpy/stressed
hmmmmmm
his comment made me realize that I had not
been around 
my jar of 
"happy baking sprinkles"
 for a while
and
 what I really needed was
a spoonful of these babies 
and a day of  
baking something 
PRETTY
to get my
happy back
sprinkles + pink dough = happy happy happy
now if it was always that easy

HUGS
 to you all for a great weekend
and
remember to take those 
"happy pills"
{hmmmm...you know what I mean}
xoxo

Hubby would have liked me to have some of them the other day ... instead he gave me a kiss. Chuckle! Not always that simple tho, is it.

Have a beautiful weekend ~
TTFN ~

Good idea!
Is it allowed to give my kids some of those 'happy pills'?
They are very grumpy today!
(it's good school is starting next monday...)

I wish you a happy weekend, x

Thank you for reminding Koralee ....
I have some homoeopathic medicines who really look exact like your happy-pills ....
Must not confuse them.......
You are so lucky to have your husband to remind you ..... and the solution is simple !
Suddenly I imagen myself standing in the mall with a very pretty basket filled with beautiful
little paperbags with some happy-pills and distributing them with a lovely smile on my face ....... hihi

Linda said...

You're a woman after my own heart! When I'm stressed, I go to the kitchen and bake something sweet! Always! My family has learned that if I take cookies or cakes to coffee time, it just might be that I have been stressed.

Just the thought of Happy Pills makes me happy already. I hope your days are less busy and you are all settle in your cozy home so you can prepare for the New School year. A New Adventure is waiting, or shall I say the Next Adventure. Love to you sweet friend xoxoxo

Libbie said...

Oh yum!..If I took happy pills I would be annoying :) Once...when I met a new freind of my husband's...the wife told her husband that I was "too happy" They didn't want to hang out any more :) Funny how it actually got back to me! Oh well...I am thinking it might be for the best :) I still wish I had some though :)

(just noticed I type a lot of smiles too...maybe she had a good point :)

Suz said...

Sugar does help. And a little dose of Canada. We are in Montreal and having a wonderful time!
Hugs,

My Passport to Style said...

I just take a spoonful sugar Mary Poppins style that usually helps not only the medicine of life go down, but those happy bubbles rise to the surface again!Going to check out your giveaway now! HUGS,Sharon xxxxxx
