Good morning, friends!
I decided to follow the lead of so many who have taken this blogging survey about all the simple things that bring me joy! Each letter of the alphabet highlights one of these things. We could all use a little reminder of the simple things that bring us joy on a Tuesday morning, am I right?
The Simple Things: A-Z
A – Apples. I usually have at least one apple a day… they are the perfect snack, and I love having them for breakfast with some peanut butter!
B - Bobby. My husband makes me insanely happy and I can’t imagine what life would be like without his hugs.
C - Carebears. I’ve always been a fan.
D- Doodle. I’m a doodler (is that a word?). I always need to have a pen on me because nothing helps me focus or relaxes me like a good doodle (this sentence actually just made me LOL).
E- Eating. Eating makes me happy. If I’m hungry, I’m cranky. When I’m cranky, everyone around me knows it. My husband is a saint.
F- Fedora. Make fun of me if you must, but I love my new hat.
G- Gym time. Working out is such a simple way to make me happy! On days when I can’t get in a good workout I am not “myself.” I feel best when I start my morning with a heart pumping workout!
H- Hugs. I love hugs. Whether it is a hug from Bobby, my mom, a friend, or my munchkin of a god-daughter, nothing feels better than a good hug!
I- Ice Cream. Gimmie.
J- Jeopardy. I love putting together games, and this Nana Jeopardy was a huge hit during our Bermuda cruise!
K- Kombucha. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Kombucha. What I’m NOT a fan of though? Kombucha prices. It’s borderline robbery!
L- Lobster at Boondocks! No other restaurant in this world makes me happier. Summer nights spent eating lobster outside on the water with my family are always perfect!
M- Momma. She’s my best friend and my biggest support, not to mention the strongest person I know.
N- Nature. Give me the beach, give me a lake, give me a hiking trail… anything! I’m one happy girl when I’m surrounded by nature!
O- Outdoor happy hours in Hoboken.
P- Pistachios. Favorite snack ever!
Q- Quiet time! Some days I need 5 minutes, some days I need 60 minutes, but regardless, if I don’t get some quiet time, I go a little crazy. Every day after work during the school year my commute home is silent. No radio, no phone calls, nothing. I need thattimeto decompress after a day in 3rd grade!
R- Romo. My crazy cat makes me laugh and smile every single day. He’s a nutcase!
S- Sushi. I could eat sushi for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. California roll for breakfast? Bring it on.
T- Twitter. I could play around on Twitter all day long!
U- Underwear. Let’s be honest, nothing is better than a good pair of underwear, am I right? It’s the simple things, folks!
V- Vacation. I don’t need elaborate vacations (although I certainly don’t mind them), even a simple night away with my husband gives me that “vacation” feeling of being relaxed!
W- Wine. It’s no secret that wine makes me happy!
X- X-Rays? I can’t think of what else to put here.
Y- Yogurt. I love using Chobani Greek yogurt in recipes. The added protein keeps me full for hours, and it tastes delicious!
Z- Zebra print. I have a zebra print scarf that makes me happy.
What are some “simple things” that make you happy??
