Making Me Smile

Many things make me smile including Mama Kat and her fabulous writing prompts. I haven't been linking up nearly as often as I'd like but I hope to change that.

Oscar Mayer Wienermobile

sock monkeys

Buddha Monkey

WTH were they thinking sock monkey creations?


wearing socks



smell of chlorine

paying it forward

great books

80s music

sleeping in

lots of pillows

Sharpie markers

playing with playdough

Hershey's Special Dark chocolate

cards and letters

good hair days

texts and phone calls from friends and family

excellent customer service

reading blogs


breathtaking sunsets


80s movies

finding money & gift cars I forgot about/lost

an empty, clean kitchen sink

What makes you smile?

LoL! That sock monkey "dress" made me smile! In an odd kind of way.

Loving your post! It definitely made me smile! The Wienermobile is awesome and I'm not so sure about the Sock Monkey outfit.... although, it did make me giggle. :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

The sock monkey unitard. What a riot! And my brother-in-law worked for Oscar Meyer for many years. His first job...driving the Weinermobile. And last winter I had sock monkey slippers from Target.

Sock Monkeys make me smile because they always remind me of you!

Kimberly said...

Love it! But those sock monkey outfits are too much!

Your Doctor's Wife said...

That sock monkey dress is just unreal!!! I'm dying to know how much that pretty thing sets one back! The must have of the season for sure! ;)

Mommy Lisa said...

So cute - thanks for coming to my blog.

Stacie @ Snaps and Bits said...

OMG, love the sock monkey dress, so hilarious!

Casey said...

Oh my...that sock monkey dress! Target is definitely on my list too. Pretty sure all my money goes to Target but when I am toting a 2.5 year old and ten month old the one stop shop of Target is the best! Thanks for Sharing!

I'm smiling right now. :D

Love the Buddha monkey, of course the Wiener Mobile and definitely babies. The sock monkey outfit (especially front view) was just wrong. I do miss the old days of getting cards and letters in the mail. :(

Great list Robbie! It started my day off with a smile.

Anything 80s makes me smile too. And empty clean sink is very nice (which I do not have at this moment). My son's sense of humor makes me smile a lot!

Fritter said...

I agree with so many of these! I smile over the little boy hugs that go all around my neck with sticky fingers that get caught in my hair.

Robbie K said...

It was a bit creepy wasn't it?

Robbie K said...

I LOVE the Wienermobile! How could you not smile at the creepy dress? :)

Robbie K said...

You have got to be kidding brother in law was a hot dogger? I am a tad obsessed with the Wienermobile? Love that you had sock monkey slippers. i wore mine out in just a few months.

Robbie K said...

:) Sock monkeys make the world go round!

Robbie K said...

Yes the outfits are quite creepy.

Robbie K said...

Hilarious and creepy huh?

Robbie K said...

believe it or not their are numerous sock monkey dresses to chose from!

Robbie K said...

Thanks :)

Robbie K said...

I smile at Target until I get the total at check out but it doesn't stop me from going back.

Robbie K said...

Glad you enjoyed it and your comments always make me smile. i thought the placement of the monkeys and red butt was especially amusing.

Robbie K said...

yeah another 80s lover! Glad your son makes you smile.

Robbie K said...

aww very sweet. I smile when my littlest guy strokes my arm and asks Why is your skin so soft Momma?

Michelle G said...

That's a great list! I'd have to agree with Target, sleeping in, chocolate and REALLY---WTH were they thinking with that sock monkey creation?!? LOL

Jessica said...

Oh, I love finding money I forgot about. That always makes me smile.
