Happy Diaries: A list of things and moments that have made me happy this week!
Hello and Happy Saturday! I don't know about you guys but I am very happy to see the weekend! It has been raining a bit here and they have predicted that sunshine will be in our near future and I cannot wait to experience it for a few days! I have soooo many plans for the week ahead and I just can't wait to get started with everything so that I can remove a few things off of my plate! But I'm not complaining too much about it because #THATSJUSTLIFE and sometimes you can't do anything about it but roll with the punches...right? Or at least that's what I'm telling myself! Ha! #IMLOVINLIFE 😜

Anyways, I just want to say that the week started off with a bang! A little car show decided to pop into town and my family and I all decided to check it out. Grant it, I'm not really into cars BUT my baby sister is and that's all the motivation I needed in life to go and watch the show!

As soon as we arrived, she could not hide her excitement! Moriah literally pointed at every car and said what she liked about each one! I am sure that after today she wants to be a driver of some sort! Ha!

And as for me, I am totally enjoying myself! The weather was pretty for a second which meant that I could style one of my favorite dresses! If you guys don't know this by now, I am obsessed with anything floral and anytime that I have a chance to wear it, I always take the opportunity! This little dress came from H&M and it was only $7! Yes, you heard me right, $7! What a steal! Oh, and you better believe that I had to take this picture in front of this little green car because it totally matched my dress! Obsessed!

I also decided to pair this dress with a pair of Converse, my little bag from Target and a pair of sunnies!

There were sooo many cars and bikes that I couldn't keep up! I tried to take pictures of the cutest ones but honestly, I loved them all! It was very interesting to learn what goes into making a car show happen and how passionate everyone is about their craft. It made me realize how grateful I am to have things that I am passionate about because I don't know who I would be if I didn't have creative expression! Anyways, as you can see, this car show was the biggest highlight of my week but that doesn't mean that I didn't have other things that made me happy as well! See more things that made me happy down below!

This Weeks Happy Diaries
  • I finally finished a few loose ends with getting into graduate school! The process has been hard BUT very worth it! I'll be sharing more about that VERY soon!
  • I purchased this new ice cream from Blue Bell called Cookie Two Step and it tastes so amazing! The flavors are filled with vanilla ice cream, chocolate creme cookies mixed with chocolate chip cookie dough! I promise I will never steer you wrong in the food department because this was absolutely amazing! If you try it, be sure to let me know what you think!
  • Movie Night! This past weekend my sisters and I all gathered around the t.v. and binged watched just about every movie you could imagine! There was popcorn, gossip, laughs and good ole sisterly bonding!

  • We made a big ole batch of homemade chili and there was nothing better than going to bed with a belly full of warm food on those cold, rainy nights!
  • I don't know why this made me happy BUT I purchased a new oil called Vanilla and Sandalwood for my room and it smells like Fall all over again! And you better believe I am loving it!
  • Found a new pair of shoes from the thrift store for only $4 and I can't wait to feature them this week on the blog! I love when I find good deals, it just makes me feel great about spending less money on items that I really love!

  • More sleep will always make the list because this girl slept 4 full nights out of the 7! Yippee!
  • I decided to take a little look around in my local book store and I found a few books that I think I will enjoy reading in the month of March.
  • I know this is random but I have been whitening my smile with my Colgate kit and I honestly feel a lot more confident than I did before! Don't get me wrong, I love my smile BUT I did notice that all of the excessive amounts of coffee I have been drinking has stained my teeth a bit! I am glad to finally be able to get my teeth back white and in control!
  • Honestly, nothing will ever beat making it to Friday and getting into bed with Netflix by my side, snacks, and a desire to do nothing for the rest of the weekend! Can I get an Amen? Ha!

And that's my little round up for the week! As always, I love to find a good balance when it comes to being grateful for my life. I know that nothing is perfect BUT I can control the narrative and emotions that I receive throughout the week. I probably could write a post about all of the negative things happening in my life/world right now but what good would that do me? Yeah, more people may relate to it because let's be honest, people LOVE basking in negativity, but that's not the life that I live and that's surely not the mindset that I want to have. Every week I always remind myself that there's more in life that I can be happy about and that keeps my life in perspective. I have access to a lot in my life and It would be flat out rude to go about my days acting ungrateful! I have learned that I BETTER be happy that I have clean water, new clothes, food, an iPhone, Macbook and countless other items that I probably don't need! So I woke up and told myself Thank you, Next and am getting ready for a fresh new batch of happiness for the day! With that being said, are there any new goals that you have for your personal happiness? Let me know in the comments down below!

Always Living and Forever Learning,
Sha'Carey Martin
