Hi friends! I am blogging to you on New Year’s Eve and thought that it would be a great day to post my 20 things that make me oh so happy post. I was tagged to do this by one of my FAVORITE bloggers, Anne, whose blog I have been reading since before I even decided to start my own blog. I had lots of fun writing this, and thinking about my favorite things has really been great and will help me start off the year on a positive note!
1.Discovering new museums or visiting some of my favorites

3.Swim meets where I get to cheer on my school 🙂
4.My Chihuahua, Chipper
I’m sure that y’all already know by now that I am very, very, very obsessed with Chicago.Lol. Also, my mom took this photo earlier this year and I have it printed out by my desk… isn’t it gorgeous?
I think everyone agrees that coffee shops are where the most work gets done 😉
I’m lookin’ at you Rifle Paper Co.
8.When you finally get a book from the library that you have been waiting weeks to get
10.Grocery Stores that have EVERYTHING
I understand that this is a weird one… but this store has a brunch restaurant and a blow out bar within the store!
11.Christmastime in the city
Not gonna lie to myself…I totally mean Chicago and only Chicago when I say ‘the city.’
12.Sitting in bed with my fairy lights on, watching Netflix or browsing Pinterest
My favorites are peonies(the state flower of Indiana-woot woot!), lilies, and sunflowers.
14.Adventures of any size
15.Finding really cute clothes at goodwill or a thrift store that are super cheap
16.My favorite book, A Separate Peace
I read a lot of books, so for me to say that it’s my favorite is crazy 😉 so glad that I read it this year.
Cookies, cupcakes, cakes… anything that is sweet.
19.Bodies of water
Pools, the ocean… mostly the ocean 😉
20.Lazy mornings with coffee and donuts
Thank you so much for reading! Can’t wait to see what 2017 has to hold for Inthelifeofminnie.
