last time i shared a list of things that made me happy since i felt kind of down. i asked my friends and you guys if anyone would be interested in sharing things that make them happy.
my friendestebanhas been really close to me since high school. he is a science, book, movie, and music enthusiast, and shares all of those things + his art in his instagram. today he is sharing with us 10 things that make him happy. enjoy!
10 things that make esteban happy:
my girlfriend. she makes me smile a lot. she sees me for who i am: really weird, and strange, and full of crazy ideas. and, surprisingly, that doesn’t scare her or push her away.
my family. they’re very funny. they make me laugh everyday. and we always talk about alien life forms–more than jesus probably (sorry, mom!).
i like books. and tea. i love reading with iced tea. i love that books take me to places i cannot go.
i like reading with my girlfriend. and she drinks tea while reading, as well.
my favorite couple in the world: my friends david and diana. we’ve been friends since high school, and i know they’ll always be there for me. david is a badass musician and a badass nerd. and diana is the best friend you could ever have. every time we meet we go for burgers or pizza from peter pipers or wings.
watching movies by myself. if i watch movies with people, i then watch them on my own.
food makes me really happy.
I’m happy that I don’t give a sh*t what people think about me.
listening to albums. i’m not a one song kind of person. if i invest in music, i listen to the whole thing the artist created. it’s like buying a book and only reading a few chapters. like picking a chapter in the middle and reading that. i judge music by looking at the complete piece.
i like to spend time on my own. and think about points one through nine.

what things make you happy?
you can send me an email with your list at
forloveandnapo (at) outlook (dot) com
just put everything together, and i will share it on my blog. :)
david finally did something he has been wanting to do since he got his jeep six years ago– take the top off! he said it was really hard to do, especially since it is a really heavy piece.
i’m so happy he did it though! i was scared to drive in it, but it feels so awesome. your hair goes all over the place, but who cares. it’s part of the fun! i can just picture us in the beach with this beauty or on a road trip.
thankfully it was cloudy, so we didn’t have the sun hitting our faces and burning our skin. this texas heat does not forgive.
anyway friends, how has your summer been so far? any interesting little adventures?
p.s: i’ve never been much into filters, but i’m kind of getting into them lately. they made these photos interesting. what do you think? maybe i’ll use them a little bit more. maybe.
yes, we know mcdonald’s is the worst thing you can do for your body.
and yes, we know there are tastier things out there for the same price.
but honestly, we were really craving a quarter pounder..
so we went and got one after my little sister’s dance recital,
right after picking up this cute guinea pig, amy.
she’s the last piggy i’m rescuing. i love, love, love waking up every day to healthy and happy adopted piggies, but i already have my hands full.
it kinda makes me sad, cuz part of me (the animal lover) wants to go out there and rescue every guinea pig in need of a home, but the other part of me (the reasonable part) is like stop, you can’t anymore.
i’m grateful for the ones i have and that i am able to sustain them.
i’m also grateful for runs to random restaurants with my boyfriend to satisfy our cravings.
did i mention i love him? i do.
this one and another one of my recent posts included burgers. oops. can you tell i love them too?
how is your weekend so far, friends? :)
btw: i changed my blog’s layout, what you do think? i’m really liking it!
it was a quick, one day trip to san antonio and to austin that we did last weekend. we did more than the stuff pictured, but i wanted to share these photos since i thought they looked pretty neat.
we were offered two spray cans to graffiti, but we declined. i kind of do feel bad for painting over other artist’s art. people come here and spend hours working on a master piece and by the next day it is gone. what you’re seeing is probably covered by now. everyone paints what they want. i guess that’s what also keeps the park interesting. you never know what you’re gonna find.
we also may or may not have spent 2 hours searching through lego pieces to build a star wars millennium falcon, and we also may or may not have eaten chick-fil-a twice in a week.. oops.
anyway, i hope you’re having a nice day! thanks for stopping by!

i honestly just have a couple of bucks under my name, if anything, at the moment. hence this post. a post about cool things i’ve seen around the web that i honestly don’t have a need for (or money for), but would be cool to own. why does it always happen that anytime i find something neat i am out of money? ugh. a girl can dream, right?
anyway, here’s my current silly wish list accompanied by cute illustrations/photos:
i love the surprise of not knowing how your photo will turn out until you develop it. i also really love the effects plastic cameras give your images; light leaks and vignetters take my heart. even if some people don’t like them.
because my guinea pig ate my last ones and i really miss them… damn you little robyn! (who i can’t stay mad at)
ok, these i do need. my current ones are broken and scratched. but i always hear stories of people spending upwards of $700 on glasses + exams and it scares me..
kind of silly (but then again, this is a silly wish list) because my golden retriever probably gets bored in our backyard and deserves it for being awesome..
a camera made out of paper. simple!
buuut, i know myself. once i get paid, that money will be spent on my guinea pigs, ha! oh well, i’d rather see them happy and well fed than me with yet another camera that i just want for my collection or more lipsticks that i’ll probably use just once.
what things are on your silly wish list at the moment? things that you want just for the fun of? let me know!
have a very nice day :)
p.s: creators (those that i found) of the illustrations are tagged on them.
