My Happy List

Today, I am joining my friend, Ricki Jill from Art @ Home, for My Happy List Tuesday.


This week, I'm happy about:


Last weekend we went to see fun.  It was the first concert for both my daughter & son, and did they ever love it!

I have this video I took with my iphone.   It's just a little snippet of one of my favorite fun. songs.

I'm not good at this technical stuff, but the video here does not look as good as when I watch it from my iphone or computer.  It's blurry  & looks further away here???  We were not that far away from the stage.

Anyway, you know the last concert I went to iphones weren't even invented yet, let alone cell phones.  lol  I always remember the warning that we would hear before the concert started that said "photography & videotaping are strictly prohibited."  Wow, what a different world we live in now!   Everyone was taking pictures or taping with their phones and there was no "strictly prohibited" warning before the concert. I guess our kids today are lucky.  They can actually look back & view the concerts they went to.  I would love to see a video like this of when I saw Bon Jovi back in the 80s for their the Slippery When Wet tour.   
This week, I'm happy about:
Cooler Temps and Less Humidity 

By Wednesday, the humidity is supposed to break.  Thank goodness!
This week, I'm happy about:
The Royal Baby
Is it weird to be happy about that?  It's not like I know the family, or that I was from England even,  but I was a huge admirer of Princess Diana and I just love seeing her children and legacy live on.  
This week, I'm happy about:
NYC and Broadway Shows
On Saturday, my daughter & I are headed to NYC.  We are going to see:
I can't wait!  I love the city, I love Broadway, I love spending the day with my daughter.
What are you happy about this week?
Head on over to Art @ Home, link up and tell us about it!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. So true about concerts today! Everyone's taping and picture taking nowadays! My first concert was in 1983, my best friend and I saw Adam Ant. Inxs opened for him and got boo'd off the stage lol.

    Yay for cooler temps and less humidity!

  2. Great happy list. I love that song!!! What a "fun" concert to attend with your children.

  3. I love the resurgence of folk rock lately. This group is very fresh and lives up to their name! I bet it was a great concert. Fun is coming to Seattle for "Bumbershoot" over Labor Day weekend.

    Enjoy, Jersey Boys...Chrislyn and I loved it.

    Speaking of Happy...I am HAPPY that you popped in for a visit yesterday!

  4. I love your Happy List!

    You have much to be smiling about!


  5. We have so much to be thankful and happy for! Today I am happy to have a quiet morning at home, sipping a cappucino, listening to the birds, thankful for the shower of rain we had last night, and getting caught up with my blog friends! Have an awesome day!

  6. I don't know about "Fun." Anything you can all do together has to be fun, right.
    The temps and rain have been a little hard on all of us. Yesterday we had almost 3 inches of rain in two hours..that's a lot of rain.
    Have fun and stay cool.

  7. You have lots of happy things on your happy list, Gina. I would love to see Jersey Boys, I live a short distance from Bway but it might as well be half way across the country! Never heard of the group "fun" but then, I am old. xo

  8. I am happy to see YOUR happy list. I already read Ricki Jill's list. I think this is a really fun thing to do. Have fun On Broadway! xo Diana

  9. Summer is all about FUN!!!

    Enjoy your visit to Broadway.

    We could use some of your rain.


  10. :D This is such a great list. I'm happy about the little royal, too! This world needs some good news, and to think that a sweet little innocent baby is getting all this attention....I think it's *great* I love fun. too....they are a great group, and it sounds like they're fantastic live! Thanks so much for linking-up, Gina. It has made my day!!!


  11. Such a fun happy list. What a great idea. Keep on sharing Gina. xo Linda

  12. Aren't teen kids the best friends you can have?!
    It's like a new chance to have that fun again.

    Enjoy - Them and Summer,
