laugh, dance, and volunteer.

Some people find happiness in the most mundane things such as money, looks, and conventional wants and needs. I heard that to be at an ultimate level ofย  happiness, I need these three activities – laughing, dancing, and volunteering.

I’ve done just that. Do I feel happier after doing one of these activities?! Of course! This weekend, I devoted my time volunteering at Aids Walk 2009.

Being silly in Golden Gate Park.

Here's my version of a "happy face"!

Thank you again, to everyone who helped donate money to this cause! Gloria and I were able to reach our small goal with everyone’s contribution. We made over $200 for a great cause to fight this battle. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

This weekend, we also went flower searching in Half Moon Bay. *in a sarcastic tone* Gloria and Scott were thrilled to be dragged into my hunt for the perfect bouquets! NOT! I just wanted to make sure that the flowers at this vendor were worth it. Hopefully, the florist will be able to create what I’ve always imagined.

Trying to figure out my combination of flowers.

….and scrapping is always something that keeps my happy! Here’s a picture of the mini album I created last week. It’s a compilation of photos from my trip to Atlanta that were just lying around in my photo bucket.

…and here are some non 12×12 layouts I finished up last night after our Sunday BBQ. This was honestly a challenge since I tend to focus on 12×12 layouts.

Happy Monday to everyone!



PS: Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater…!! HAHAH! Looks like you couldn’t do it on your own. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, and just for clarification, I know who stops by my blog to snoop around in my life.
