Selfish Happiness

Recently, Rockstar Diary blogger asked readers to make a list of 10 things that make them happy. I quickly replied. That was easy...the smell of my husband, making cookies with my children, hearing my kids say, "goodnight, I love you", hearing my husband return home from work, etc., etc.
But...
here I sit, several days later thinking of my answers. Although, all of those things make me joyfully happy, I realized, they depend on someone else. Meaning...my happiness would rely on my children or Mr. C. And, yes, my life would not be as happy or complete without them...but, what makes me happy? What are my guilty pleasures?
  • Will and Grace reruns
  • Mathew McConaughey
  • Eating all of the frosting from a scrumptious cupcake
  • Manicures and pedicures
  • I Love Lucy reruns
  • Flowers
  • Running...especially on the beach
  • Being alone...more specifically...having the house to myself
  • Laying by the pool with a fabulous read in my hands
  • Watching a live performance...preferably a play or dance...then wishing it was me up there...

What are your guilty pleasures...that make you so happy?
