There are a lot of things that make me happy. Of course, God and my family are at the top of my list. But there are a lot of little things that make me happy, too.
Ice cream. Is definitely. One of them.

During my honeymoon in Punta Cana last year, I had ice cream for dessert after EVERY lunch and dinner. For seven days. If Punta Cana didn't seem like Heaven enough, adding the ice cream sealed the deal. I'm pretty simple when it comes to flavors. I like vanilla, chocolate and mint chocolate (the ranking of that list depends on my mood).
Unfortunately, I haven't found a zero-calorie ice cream yet (which you could have told by my jean size a few months ago). You may remember in January when I posted about my plan to get healthy. Guess what?
I'm still on it!
While I'm not the thinnest I've ever been (yet), I am definitely the healthiest I've ever been and am in the best shape of my life. And that... makes me very happy.
One of the best parts of my new lifestyle is that I'm not giving anything up! Really!!!
Remember - ice cream makes me happy. I just have less so that the scale is happy, too!
Tag Dies. Since I don't own a Cricut Imagine, I used some patterned paper to give it the Imagine effect. I paper pierced my orange and pink layers and used my white gel pen to mimic stitching. The ice cream cone die and fun sentiment are from one of the newest MCT sets, Celebrate Good Times. The ribbon (a Hobby Lobby find) was threaded through the top for added pizzazz.
If you're interested in playing along with this week's Monday Madness...Imagine That! challenge, you can add your link on Emma's post until June 17th!
And if you have any 'getting healthy' stories to share, I'd love to read them in the comments!!!
I hope you were inspired!
