One of my favorite things is to find out someone’s Love Language and then suprise them by filling it. (If that doesn’t make sense, check out the book Five Love Languages- about how we each feel loved in a different way.) It is so important to make people feel special and happy!

I wanted to remember to #sharethejoy and so does Reddi-wip, which is why I am partnering with them today. Reddi-wip wants to help us do this, by helping others find those everyday moments to share the joy. I am going to help them (and I hope that you do, too!) Joy expands when it is shared and it is experienced in all of the senses… all around us… we just have to take a moment to embrace it and pass it on!

In fact, a recent survey commissioned by Reddi-wip found that 93% of Americans want to find more ways to experience joy every day. And only 2 out of 5 Americans think they have enough joy in their lives.

Check out these stats by Reddi-wip:

1). 93% of Americans want to find more ways to experience joy every day. (almost 1/2 don’t experience joy at all, during the day!)

2). 83% would rather experience a small amount of joy every day rather than a large amount once in a while.

3). 93% experience joy when they make someone else feel joyous…. enter today’s mini cupcakes for a friend (or a husband)!

Our kids and I made these little Reddi-Wip mini cupcakes.

    cupcakes for mic!Then we wanted to expand our mission, so we took some to their Gi (my mom).  They love to give her anything (and Allie thought that it was her birthday, so it was even more fun for her!) haha!

    These are some of my favorite cupcakes, because I love Reddi-wip so much (I play that new game, Pie in the Face, constantly with the kids because I can sneak some more Reddi-wip!)

    We even extended the mission and took some to our friends!  They were just as excited!

  1. What a fun surprise! I hardly ever have Reddi-wip and i don’t even know why. Here’s a memory from childhood, my mother would make us pudding for dessert and we would shriek with joy when it was time to top it with Reddi-wip. Good stuff!
