The Little Things That Make Me Happy

I've been thinking (uh-oh). What brings me true joy-besides the obvious like having enough money to play with with, having a job, etc.? I am a simple gal, and it doesn't take much to please me, so I thought why not list the little things that make me happy (in no particular order.)
  1. Wheat Thins Artisan Crackers: They had me at "artisan." I am addicted to these cheesy wonders. No more caked on, cheesy fingers (although I still love to let it build up thick and bite it off!)
  2. Finding a good movie on TV that I've seen 1000 xs, but I still get excited about.
  3. Having all 10 of my nails be the same length (only for them to break off the moment I polish them. What's with that???)
  4. Taking a hot shower (It's my one vice, and I'm supposed to be eco-friendly)
  5. The Ped Egg. If you don't have one of those, OMG, you are missing out. I love emptying the filings (Was that really from my feet? ICK!)
  6. Jamaican beef patties. They're greasy and fatty as hell, but damn, they're good.
  7. Finding something in my size (14, on the cusp of a 12) on
  8. Sleeping til the crack of lunch.
  9. Remembering the punchline to a joke. (Your mama is so stupid, she had a boy and girl set of twins and named them Deniece and Danephew)
  10. Scoring something really cool from Goodwill. I don't care how much money you have, a bargain is a bargain.

What are some of your favorite little things?

ha I agree with #1 only I had to bring mine to work so everyone else could eat them. If I didn't do that I would have eaten both of the boxes I got. YUM!

one thing I totally love is books on CD! Nothing is better then listening to those when you are stuck in Los Angeles traffice. I check them out from the Library so I don't even have to pay to listen to them!

oh and I love naps!!

I love making the perfect ipod playlist. love hearing a song on the radio from back in the day out of the blue or one I haven't heard in awhile. I loved taking drives out in the country or at least less populated areas but now I have to conserve on gas so...haven't done that in awhile. Ummm....a lot more stuff but, I'm guessing you don't want to hear it all! Yay for everyday blessings!
