12 Months of Happiness: November 2019

November 29, 2019

Frosty's Christmas Bar Chicago
Happy Friday and welcome back to my 12 Months of Happiness series. Friday’s are slowly becoming my favorite day of the week thanks to Disney +. (That and of course it’s the start of the weekend). Friday’s are when my two favorite Disney + shows, The Mandalorian and The Imagineering Story, premiere new episodes.

Today’s episodes of The Mandalorian and The Imagineering Story were AMAZING. Each week I think there’s no way they can top the last episode and then boom, they do!

Here are some of the things that made November an amazing month: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your November went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy!)

Chicago Bulls United Center

Seeing the Bulls vs. Lakers game at the United Center…Made Me HAPPY. The company I work at owns a VIP Box in the United Center so earlier this month my entire team was invited to a Bulls vs Lakers game. I had never watched a game from a VIP Box before and it was my first time watching a Bulls game since the 90s/I was a kid. 

Cute Disney Wrapping Paper for Christmas

Decorating for Christmas…Made Me HAPPY. In my house, Christmas officially starts on November 1st. Sorry not Sorry.

The Simon & Garfunkel Story Broadway in Chicago

Seeing The Simon & Garfunkel Story…Made Me HAPPY. It’s no secret I’m a huge Broadway fan so any time I get to see a new show is a good day in my book!

RuPaul's Drag Race UK

The finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK…Made Me HAPPY. Even though the queen I wanted to win didn’t (don’t get me wrong the winner definitely deserved it), I’m going to see Drag Race UK so much. For only it’s first season it was better than most of the recent US Drag Race seasons!

Frosty's Christmas Bar Chicago

Visiting Frosty’s Christmas Bar Chicago…Made Me HAPPY. My friend and I went to Frosty’s Christmas bar here in Chicago and man was it adorable! It’s a holiday-season pop-up bar featuring Christmas-themed cocktails, colorful lights, a DJ and even Santa!

Baby Yoda Office Decor

Baby Yoda…Made Me Happy. Like most of the world, I’m obsessed with “Baby Yoda” from The Mandalorian. I love him so much that I’ve made a sort of shrine to him on the right side of my desk at work.

Black Friday Shopping at Target

Black Friday Shopping at Target…Made Me Happy. Technically, I went shopping on Thursday night/Thanksgiving but you get my point. Every year on Black Friday Target has these 3 feet bears for $10 so I always pick one up for my dog Loki. He loves stuffed animals that are bigger than him. He likes to cuddle with them.

I also picked up the Thank U, Next vinyl and a pair of Rose Gold Beats for myself. I currently already own these same Rose Gold Beats but I bought them for whenever my current pair breaks. Beats are usually $299 and these were on sale for only $129. I thought that was just to good a price to pass up. 

Here’s a few other things that made me happy in November:

  • Thanksgiving!
  • My sister’s birthday (which is today, 11/29!)
  • Attending the Mag Mile Lights Festival.
  • Seeing Frozen 2. I loved it so much I want to see it again!

I can’t believe it’s almost December? What made you happy in November?
