Ten things that make me happy

I have been tagged by Audrey J and someone else but I can't remember who they were. Thank you! This list is by no means comprehensive. Here are a few things that make me happy.
1. Bubbles
They are so pretty and Beatrix adores them. Bubble baths are such fun and so is blowing bubbles.
 Champagne and other bubbly is delicious as well.

2. Dancing
I love dancing. I love dance parties and watching professional dancing.  It's hard not to smile when you're dancing. I've done ballet, jazz, modern, swing, tango, hip hop and freestyle. I love watching break dancing and old musicals. Last weekend I had a blast dancing to dubstep, house and techno.

For our wedding we danced to Absinthe by Duke Ellington. Alaric loves dancing too and is an excellent tap dancer. We took tango and swing lessons when we first met and had so much fun.
3. Beer
There is nothing like a beer fresh from the tap. I especially love a good amber ale or hefeweizen. I used to think I did not like beer but I've acquired quite a taste for it. On our vacation we visited some amazing breweries in Mendocino County.

4. Burritos
I love them with guacamole and fresh made salsa.  They are the perfect cure when I'm really hungry.
5.Creative Hair
I don't do hair as much anymore but when I did I loved doing creative hair. It is very fun to see all the different shapes and colors that can be achieved.  This was for a hair show a couple of years ago. May I present Alaric as cockatoo and my other model as peacock.
 6. Hiking
I hiked quite a bit when I was pregnant. We didn't go as much when Bea was a baby but recently took her to Muir woods and she loves hiking too. We are planning on going on more hikes this year. I just love being in nature.
I was 8 months pregnant when I climbed this mountain.
7. Northern California
I love nature everywhere but there is something about the beaches, mountains, and forests here that are so unique and take my breath away.

Painted Dunes at Lassen National Park
8. Karaoke
It has been too long since I've gone. It can be quite a blast.
These were at my brother's wedding. I also adore weddings!
9. Twin Peaks
I didn't watch it when it first aired but watched it a couple of years ago and loved it. It is a movie-quality TV series. 
10. Beatrix
I was trying to avoid obvious choices but for the last one I chose Bea. She is too cute not to list. here are some of her baby pics.
Anyone who would like to do this list please consider yourself tagged. It is actually quite fun and let me know if you do.

  2. I also love beer. I didn't like it but then I spent a year working in a liquor store where my boss wanted his employees to have a developed palate... now a good beer is one of my favourite treats. :o I had Alaskan Winter Ale when I was in the US... so delicious!!!
