The Top Ten Things That Make Me Happy (#1)

The other day while I was watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey flipping the channels looking for Masterpiece Theater, I happened upon a show on Bravo entitled, The Top Ten Things That Make Me Happy, and I thought to myself, what a great idea for a blog series.

So I started thinking: what are the top ten things that make me happy?  For the purpose of this exercise, I am talking about purely materialistic things.  None of this, "my family and friends" business because that's a given (and frankly a little bit boring).  And I'm not including activities either.  For this, I'm getting my Madonna on and talking about things.

I will be presenting them in no particular order over a series of posts.  And that brings us to #1:

Fit Flops
My current faves :)

When I moved to San Diego six years ago I was thrilled to find myself in a place where I could comfortably wear flip flops eight months of the year.  (And just slightly less comfortably for the remaining four ;)

I picked up a few pairs of oh-so-cute-but-not-so-terribly-supportive-flip-flops and quickly remembered that mine are the feet of a middle-aged woman.  (Could you tell from the Madonna reference?)  

And as it turns out, middle-aged women need arch support.

Thankfully, it was not long after that painful experience that I was introduced to FitFlops.  They're super-supportive, stylish, and I might just own five pairs.

I know that I sound like a cheesy pitchwoman, but seriously, these things are the bomb.  And you should also know that good people at FitFlops have not compensated me in any way.  (Though if they wanted to send me a pair, I wouldn't complain...)

So that's it for today's installment.  I'd love to know some of the things that make you happy.  Feel free to leave a comment :)


  1. Um...what makes me happy, seeing a new post from 'a casarella :). I love that you'll be filling us in on your top 10 things that make you happy. I admit it, I am a bravo fan as well. Just another thing for us to do together when we do finally meet.

  2. I've never heard of Fit Flops...but they look so cute and since my feet are middle-aged, I'm off to google them. Looking forward to the other 9 in your series! Should be fun and thanks for sharing.....Material Girl!

  3. I hear ya on that dang need for arch support. I make my feet suffer way too often. But yes living in San Diego we wear them year round and my toes feel very constricted in closed toed shoes. I don't know how you lived in cold weather for so long. Thanks for the tip on the Fit Flops. Oh and yes I can read small print (thanks to my glasses). 5 pairs huh? hahhaha :)

  4. Love flip flops but love my hammock MORE!! Have a great day!

  5. A cliff hanger :) I love it! Can't wait to see the other nine :)

    Have a wonderful and blessed day!
