I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel soooooo bad....... (wow, I kind of got into the song a little bit)
Or maybe it's just when winter seems to drag on, the high temperature for the day is suppose to be 7 degrees. I woke up to this:
and the wind might just blow you down the street ~ that's when I remember some of my favorite things. And I thought I would share them with you.
Mmmm, a nice hot cup of coffee
My warm and cozy slippers
Running shoes ~ nothing like getting out (to go into the health club) and getting some natural endorphins going
Aquaphor ~ perfect for my nails and lips on these
cold, dry days
Nail Polish ~ I never paint my fingernails, but I love to have my toes beach ready. You know, just in case we win the lottery (that we don't play) and are forced to go on a trip to a tropical island.
This rug ~ no really, it is perfect for the kid's wet boots and prevents me from accidentally stepping in wet, snow spots.
and yes, this mud room is in desperate need of a change and my head is full of ideas, but one of our favorite things is the"art wall" where we hang all of the kids pictures ~ we see them every time we come in and out of the house ~ it makes us all smile :)
These lounge pants from NY and Company ~ so comfy, they have long sizes, and they were only $13.00 ~ so I also have a pair in charcoal gray and brown.
Reading materials ~ pleasure and inspiration
Music ~ lots of variety
Oh, and lets not forget this brilliant ball
Ok, so my items are a little random. I would also like to point out that these are just a few of the simple daily thingsI am thankful for and enjoy (lets not forget remote car starters on days like today either). However, nothing could make me smile more than my family! I mean really who could resist a face like this (breakfast and all)?
