10 Examples Of Why Facebook Makes Us Happy (And You Should Totally Hang Out With Us There)

It really is the little things in life, right? The small things that bring you happiness or joy.

When we saw the Monday ListiclesΒ topic for this week from Wendy at Stamping Rules, we knew we wanted to jump on board. She suggested that everyone share 10 tiny (or secret) things that bring them joy. We can totally do that.

Our Facebook page is one of our favorite aspects of the social media world because it allows us to connect with you multiple times a day. We know we have nailed it when people like it or comment on it or even better, share it. And that makes us happy.

So, without further ado, here are 10 Examples of what makes our Facebook page fun:



No joke, right? The other day, we happened to hear at least five amazing songs before we even got to the bread aisle.


FBShampooΒ Who has not had that moment where you find yourself all ready to step out of the shower with amazing smelling hair, except your new shampoo is actually all the way across the bathroom? You’re totally stuck with the dregs of a random bottle ofΒ dandruff shampoo.



It should be fairly obvious to anyone reading that this is actually pretty close to the truth for us. I mean, did you even see what we keep in our closets? Chances are fairly high that Steven Spielberg could have totally just raided our wardrobe for E.T.



Considering that we both have framed BABY photos of our older children still needing to be hung on our walls, we get this one. Our husbands insist that they must be the ones to hang the pictures, saying stuff about levels and stud finders (insert obvious joke here), so we sit back and admire our adorable children from the floor where our framed photos live.



You are already scouring the interwebs for this book, aren’t you? Bet you can think of at least three “frenemies” who you want to gift it to, can’t you? Don’t worry, when we saw it, we felt the same way!



Are we right or what? We all know that we go through at least 87 pictures of ourselves before we pick one to be a our profile photo and then one tagged picture can ruin it all!



Only every.single.night. Is there anything worse than the realization before you even lay your head down on your pillow that you are going to be getting less than six hours of sleep? Didn’t think so.



When is Ryan Gosling not the answer? That face right there brings us joy. And happiness. And you know what Ryan, we do feel better. Thank you.



And chances are we will actually still wear them, too. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy an earring in the shape of a Zipper.



Pretty much says it all.

  1. If I waited around for my hubby to hang my photos, they would never get on the walls. On the other hand, I do have way more photos (along the staircase to the upstairs) of my oldest son than the youngest two…so I can’t really criticize. Both of us are slackers!!

    I love #10! So true!

  2. I completely get the tagged photo thing – my SIL and I have some serious bad photo Karma happening.

    The calculating sleep thing my phone likes to do for me when I set my alarm. It’s never pretty. In fact I probably should have been in bed at least 6 hours ago.

  3. As soon as I saw this title on my blogroll I knew I had to come over before bed. I <3 you peeps. And FB is what made me get to know you better so I can truly say I agree and am glad I joined.

  4. These are all so so awesome but #7 is the story of my life, I count it down to the minute!! I feel like such a winner when I can get 7 hours and sometimes I wonder why even bother if its less than 6!! Ha these are all so great!

  5. So here’s what happened. I clicked on your FB link to make sure I liked you and I hadn’t! I know I follow you on Twitter. Now, both, Anyway, that little jaunt to your page brought me back here 30 minutes later (!) and I was like, oh, where have I been?

    Loved this post! Great idea for a post and I have shared, or would share, every single one of these, they’re so funny!

  6. Those less than attractive tagged photos are the worse but number 10 is my favorite! We get carried away with the winking, I couldn’t imagine that in real life. I actully don’t wink in real life at my members when teaching fitness classes cause it creeps me out when female instructors have winked me.

  7. That was wonderful…laugh out loud funny stuff. Especially #6…I am NOT a good posed photo subject, but am an especially poor candid photo subject…so every tagged photo of me is horrible beyond words. Have a blessed day! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Good reminders on why to keep hanging out on Facebook. It’s been frustrating lately for my blog page. Love the ET picture of how I actually look when I think I’m dressed nice…classic, style is not something that comes easily to me πŸ™‚

    Have a great Monday!

  9. What a great way to start my Monday morning. Totally laughed. #3, #4 and #6, yes, yes and yes!!! Especially #6. My God it takes me forever to put a picture on my Facebook page and drives me crazy when I am tagged. The last one made me snort. πŸ™‚

  10. The pop-up book of phobias? There has to be a MIL in there somewhere…
    Love the list. And I am so guilty of those emoticons (and I hate myself for it), I need to work on my writing skills so I don’t need those anymore πŸ˜‰

  11. I’m winking at you now…just fyi. You might not be able to see me since I am sitting on the floor looking at baby photos. πŸ˜€ amazing how true those things are.

  12. {Melinda} Love all of these … especially the supermarket one. I feel like I’m walking the halls of high school as I jam to Loverboy, Journey, the Bangles and Prince. I can totally have a moment right there in the bread aisle. πŸ™‚

  13. After 29 years with this man, I don’t remind him of anything anymore. I just build up silent resentment and threaten to call someone he’ll have to pay to get it done. LOL I hadn’t seen some of those- hilarious!

  14. This was laugh-out-loud funny! Saba has the level AND stud-finder….but in his defense, he actually uses them and I don’t have to nag! But it is funny how so many men have those, and so many of us women use the “eyeing it” approach to hanging stuff! Good listicles here!

  15. Haha, my hubby is always accusing me of nagging him. After the 5th time I ask him to do something he told me he would do, then yes, I do start nagging πŸ˜‰ Great list, ladies!

  16. LOL to the winking. The one about the men fixing stuff was my favorite. Those things usually get fixed when his side of the family is coming to visit. πŸ˜‰ Great advertisement. I’m going over to like your page.

  17. I loved all of these (obviously) but #4 really hit home. I was just thinking yesterday, “If we plan on selling our house in one year, should I start spacing the ‘unfinished projects reminders’ now?”

    But the stress of that line of thinking was washed away by looking in Ryan Gosling’s eyes. Mmm…

    • Wish we could say we planned it that way! πŸ˜‰ So glad Ryan comforted you…maybe he can over and help with the projects! πŸ˜‰

  18. All good…but the sleep thing. Too true to be funny. LOL I think sleep is more important than just about anything else when it comes to a healthy life. And I have insomnia. Ugh!

    Does my grocery store even play music? Now I’m going to have to listen.

  19. Loved them all, especially #6. My cover photo on my personal Facebook page says “Profile pictures, what people want other people to think they look like, Tagged pictures- what they really look like.

  20. Uhm. I actually LOL’d and stole your photo about reminding your husband to do things. Cause, my washer is broken. Has been for 4 days. My favorite sweats are covered in mud from the dogs, and seriously, I CANNOT live without those. Meanwhile have been texting him reminders about the washer. Text received from said husband last night “Tonight I fix it” don’t worry, English is his first language, he was trying to be cool. Meanwhile, no washer, no sweats.

    • HA HA HA!! You should totally keep reminding him because living without your favorite sweats is torture. You simply cannot go one more day without him fixing it! πŸ˜‰

      • It is 10:50, my brother in law just showed up because I cornered my husband, he was like a scared little kitty. I threatened to call a professional. Then he was all “well I can’t find my drill” I said really? REALLY? FIX THE WASHER! So now my brother-in-law is fixing the washer.

  21. Oh my goodness, those made me laugh. Especially the music in the grocery store and ET dressed up. Have you ever seen the side-by-side comparison of ET dressed up and Mary-Kate Olsen from her fashionable bag-lady phase? It’s hilarious. I’ll try to dig it up.

  22. OMG, I love all the ways in which this post reminded me of your collective awesomeness. And I *love* that I often laugh out loud reading your posts. I think it was the cat profile/tag photo that did it…but that shampoo thing? I just love things that are funny because they’re so true. Obviously you do too, which is why your FB page is so awesome. Hope you got a billion more likes thanks to this post!

    • Thank you so much Stephanie!! We LOVE your comment!! πŸ™‚ I do agree that funny things that are true are just the best! πŸ™‚

  23. These are brilliant! My husband calculates his sleep hours every night. Then I fall asleep really happy knowing I will get 2 hours more πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ (could not resist the wink)

  24. These are hilarious! I’m also the type of person, when I can’t sleep, who will lay there and think, if I fall asleep now I can still get 6 hours. If I fall asleep now, I can still get 5 and half hours. If I fall asleep NOW, I can still get 5 hours and 15 minutes. Now that I think about it, that might be one reason why I have a hard time falling asleep!

  25. This whole list just brought me tons of joy…well, laughter at least! Totally with you on #3 and #4. Let’s just put it this way: The oldest is going on 4 and the baby is nearly 8 months…and the husband still hasn’t finished babyproofing. :/

  26. Great choices there! Totally had me cracking up. I love getting posts like that on facebook too. And that last bit…. πŸ˜‰ Hehehe. I just had to. Thanks for sharing!
