Happy Monday {5th ed.}

Happy Monday!! Here is what is making me happy....

The Bali house in Eat Pray Love
Im pretty much convinced that I would be forever happy if I could just live in that house for the rest of my life. I would have a garden and live off the land, read books on my patio under a palm tree, lounge in my open air bedroom, ride my bike in to town....yup thats the life! I don't know how I feel about the Balinese culture though actually, but I guess that wouldn't matter in my little personal island oasis...sigh....
(I dont think these are the actual pictures, and they really doesn't do it justice. So, just watch the movie, oh and read the book!!)
Julia Robert's laugh
...while we are on the subject! Is her laugh not the most infectious thing ever?! It is impossible not to be happy when you hear it. What an amazingly wonderful quality to have!

Independent Book and Pet Stores
I love finding great little book and pet stores! I love walking through aisles of old books and finding unique little pet things in hole-in-the-wall pet stores. There are so many of these great shops in this area and I love it. It is so much better than giving your money to a big conglomoration just to get something completely unoriginal!
This is Elliot Bay Books, one of the awesomely quirky book stores here in Seattle!

This is a classic love and it is my ultimate destressor. I have had a bad week and have been really stressed, but it never fails that as soon as I hear "do dododo dodo da dodo..Ill be there for you..." I am instantly in a better mood! Its a security blanket and I don't think I will ever let go :)

That is it for me this week, what makes you happy?!

I love the house in the photos from 'Eat, Pray, Love'...wouldn't mind spending some time there, nope not one bit!

What makes me happy? So much really, but for today I will say:

1. Chocolate chip pumpkin cookies
2. Crispy leaves
3. Evening fires
4. Date nights with my wife
5. Feeling accomplished

Have a terrific week!
