Happy List

It's been awhile since I've made a good old-fashioned happy list.  Here we go:
A Very She & Him Christmas Currently cycling through 3 albums on repeat.  This is the selection when I'm feeling Christmassy.  Retro, mellow, festive as heck.
Old Navy Sequined Ballet Flats Okay: confession.  I don't actually own these.  I enforce a pretty strict shopping-for-myself embargo in December.  But the embargo doesn't prevent mad shoe lust.
Vitafusion MultiVites These are so yummy I would eat them all day if the bottle didn't strictly instruct otherwise.  I hate taking pills, but gummy vitamins for adults?  Yes and yes.
"Man or Muppet" from The Muppets So thrilled they made this a music video.  The Muppets album is the 2nd one on the current rotation, and "Man or Muppet" is by far the stand out track.  (Also: how great is the Jason Segel Muppet??)

Warby Parker Langston Frames I admit it, I broke the embargo once.  But these are my first new pair of glasses since 2004 and the previous pair vanished in May.  These are needed.  They're not here yet, but oh-so eagerly anticipated!
Alice Rebecca Potter Winter Stripe Patterns I love the idea of putting a simple pattern in a frame and hanging it on a wall.  Fortunately, Alice Rebecca Potter's clever patterns are available as prints on Society6 for your framing convenience.  Love.
Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony 3rd on the rotation: this CD came with the new Zelda game (nabbed just before the embargo went into effect) and I love it so, so much.  Koji Kondo composed all of the themes for the Zelda games, and I find myself going back to the Wind Waker theme over and over.  I suspect this will end with a complete replay of that game.

Honorable mentions: dogs who keep my feet warm at night, mint fudge brownies, the cat who stares into the fire for hours on end, mad pinning, stalking bottle brush trees on etsy, an impromptu game of MarioParty with my brother.

So that's my list!  It could be much, much longer (a lot makes me happy at this time of year), but I fear any more would give some gifts away.  What sorts of things are making your heart happy these days?
