Project Smile-April

The challenge is to find something to smile about every single day of the month. Thanks to Kristi for keeping this going at Live and Love...out Loud.
Here are my smiles for April:

1st- A lazy Friday spent with my roommate shopping and watching TV.
2nd- "It really is a small world"-type situation.
3rd- A 2 year old's birthday party!
4th- A day spent at Disneyland with my family!
5th- Target always makes me happy.
6th- A yummy dinner with family in Santa Monica.
7th- I had an easy pain-less drive to Phoenix, Arizona.
8th- This was all around fabulous day spent visiting with long-time awesome friends in Phoenix.
9th- I went to a very good friend's sweet baby shower. Lots of awwwing over all the gifts!
10th- Nothing puts a smile on my face more than great girl talk, especially when it makes a long drive go by faster. A good audio book helps too.
11th- I was whistled at on the street in my work out clothes!
12th- Morning yoga, an awesome interview and seeing a friend's band play down the street from where I live.
13th- An easy and fun nannying day.
14th- A ridiculously long run on the treadmill! Whew!

17th- 1 blissful hour at a park with nephew.
18th- Having time to go to the gym and run outside! Whoa!
19th- Hearing Tina Fey and Steve Martin chat will make anyone smile.
20th- Snuggling in bed with my nephew and hearing him say "I love you" as I said good night.
21th- Wine and simple girl chat.
22nd- Going to a Prince concert! Need I say more?
23rd- For once, a super productive Saturday.
24th- A long talk.
25th- A promising/interesting interview.
26th- Cheers to being impulsive. : )
27th- Getting soaked by my nephew when I gave him a bath and not really caring at all.
28th- Getting a mani and a pedi with my sister.

29th- A LONG work day spent with a sweet 2 year old named Jake.
I spent the afternoon at the beach and didn't get burned and even made a new friend. : )

Can you think of 30 things that made you smile this month? It's really easy and I urge you to do on your own. Here's what had me smiling back in March.


  1. I loved reading this list and am so impressed that you remember something from every day of the month! I could do it if I wrote something down every day but otherwise probably couldn't remember. :) It's important to keep in mind, though, as it's so easy to just be frustrated with things that go wrong. Sounds like you had an amazing month, though! Gonna check out some of those links--especially wanna hear about first date! Lord knows it's been a while for me, ha.

  2. Yay! Love it! I'll email you my list--although I'll admit this month wasn't as full of smiles as I'd like. I kind of forgot about two days. But, looking back on the list always put a fresh smile on my face. So thanks, Leah!! xoxo

  3. This is amazing!!! I need to try this out!!!! I need some more positivity back in my life, this will sure be a great jump start!!!!

    Thanks for checking out my blog and commenting!

    Enjoy LA! I miss it from time to time, but i'm happy being back home on the east coast :) I hope it's treating you well!!!!

    see you around!

  4. What a great month of fun, family, and friends. Does it get any better than that?
