All the small things...

I've had this post sitting in drafts for months, and thought that nothing would be a better pick-me-up on a snowy spring day than happy thoughts. Cuz seriously? This sucks.

Its the little things in life that make me happy.

1) The "just perfect" fries and sweet tea from Micky D's on the way home from yoga on Tuesday night. For $2!

2) Nick asking, "Mommy, how was your day today?" when I get home from work.

3) Big hugs from Will. (He's the best hugger ever!)

4) Minute Maid cherry lime-aide over crushed ice. MMMMM....

5) Air conditioning (wow - months ago I started this post)

5a) Heated seats in my Blazer.

6) Clean sheets on the bed that Jay changed! (Huh - that was probably the one time ever he did that. Though he did finish the tile on the kitchen floor this weekend, so I'll give him credit.)

7) New movies in the mail from Netflix.

8) My cat, rubbing against my ankles - he still loves me even though he's getting cranky in his old age.

9) A new book to read.

10) A good spot by the Lake to read over my lunch hour. (Today? I'd be buried.)

11) Girl scout cookies!


13) Nice pens.

14) Pretty file folders (yes, I am digging deep, thankyouverymuch)

15) Mt. Dew slushies

I'd love to hear about your favorite things! Check out Or, are you looking to remind yourself of the little things you're thankful for every day? Join Grace in Small Things. Just two more of my favorite things.

I'd tell you my favorite things - but this is a G rated site, right? Oh. I know ... Not only do I have heated seats in my Vue, SWMBO bought me a REMOTE STARTER for the Vue for Christmas. Do you have ANY idea how swell it is (swell?) to climb into a warm car with heated seats on a clod, wintery day?

I get shivers of anticipation just thinking about it.

I LOVE nice pens, love them! But pens is not what I read initially.

Good books and alone time is just lovely!

Enjoy honey!!!

Favorite things, free time to read a good book and warm blankets straight out of the dryer.

Mmmm...I love cherry limeades! And you're right about needing McD's fries that are "just right." Because when you get fries that aren't...what a bummer...

Mountain Dew SLUSHIES?

My life is not yet complete. Where can I get them?

I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the minute maid cherry limeade. Seriously girl, I buy it all the time. Stock up when it's one sale -- and threaten the kids to within one inch of their life if they drink it. Okay, not really, but they know they're not allowed to just take it without asking. It's Mommy's!!!

I also love getting one from SONIC!!! They put the real cherries in you know -- and to get all crazy, I ask for EXTRA CHERRIES. SQUEEEEEEELLLLLL!!!!!
