100 Days of Happiness (35/100)

100 Days of Happiness (35/100)

So you see — my mind is LOCKED on two things.  #1 Erin is coming home from Dublin tomorrow!  YAY!!  and #2  We will decorate the Christmas Tree tomorrow!  YAY again!

A silly thing that I’m thinking about.  Some time-honored traditions from the past are hard to find in these modern times.  Example:  Tinsel.  Yea, tinsel!  I LOVE TINSEL!  My mom would let us kids just DRAPE the tree in tinsel.  That thing could stop traffic, it was so shiny.


One year I went out to buy tinsel, and……WHAT???  I couldn’t find it anywhere.  Store owners in the area, repeating something about it being a fire hazard…blah blah blah.  I finally found it in a dollar store somewhere…..a place where — let’s face it — MOST THINGS in that store are a fire hazard!  I bought two boxes, and since then — well — my taste and sense of style has ‘matured’ over the years — those 2 boxes have lasted almost 6 years.  LMAO, yes yes — just a little sparkle and glitter on my tree these days, so you can actually SEE the tree, BUT STILL — TINSEL, GOTTA HAVE IT!

So here’s to TINSEL.  Most certainly a happy thing 🙂  #100happydays (35/100)

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
