Two Random Things That Make Me Happy

Nadia G Happiness

I find it very easy to rant about what gets me mad (see my Furious Foods episode). However, this week on BK, I’m switching things up and yappin’ about being happy — like “unicorn and rainbows” happy. Sure, not every day is a shoe-shopping-happy kind of day, but it’s the little things that should keep you from flying off the handles. Check out two things that, without fail, get me grinning:

1) Finding a parking spot, real fast.
It may not seem like a big deal, but when you’re driving around for what seems like forever, the difference between finding a parking spot quickly and leaving tire track crop circles is key. Landing that magical spot right in front of the office when you’re running late for a meeting, or in front of your apartment building after a long day, can take a day from “drowning your misery” to “girls’ night out” in a heartbeat. You know what I mean.

2) Money in your old jeans.
Jackpot! Finding cash in an old coat or a pair of jeans you haven’t worn in ages sure beats finding old candy wrappers and lint, doesn’t it!? It’s like winning the local, and uh … really small, lottery. Mad bonus points if you find money in someone else’s pants you’ve borrowed. Finders keepers!

For more on Happiness, tune in to Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen Happiness episode tonight at 10pm ET on Cooking Channel.

    I remember finding a $20 in my band uniform the following season. In 1985. When $20 went somewhere. It was like flippin' Christmas!

    Ha Ha opened up a Christmas present from over 5 yrs ago… knew it was a crock pot, my Sister-in -law forgot she already gave me one, so I put it away with other small appliances I don't use often. Well I went to clean up the area that I have it in and decided to open it cause I noticed the box said it included a carry case and we were going away to our condo in SC. I open it and Linda put a Christmas ornament inside and an envelope with a $20.00 bill. I was like NO WAY, this has been in the box all these years! NICE!

    Found money I had stashed away in a old book, once. That was awesome!! 40.00 dollars came in handy at the local record store, back then!

    I laughed out loud, and was truly happy for at least a brief moment, while watching your last show and you stared into the camera for the longest time, seemingly daring us to look away. Were you going for a record for the longest camera stare? I dare you to try a full 10 seconds. Love the show. Waiting for the Hockey Special. Cookies are gone. Will be making the onion rings today.
