These are a few of my favorite things!

[In no particular order]
  • Getting to work after being gone and having no new voicemails!

  • Deciding I’m finally going to make that recipe I have been wanting to try and realizing I have ALL the ingredients.

  • Getting amazing parking, somewhere really busy and crowded.

  • When a plane takes off from the runway and the feeling of excitement and adventure and new experiences.

  • The first bite of Pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving!!

  • Holding a brand new baby in my arms for the first time.

  • When I get in the car, turn on the radio and one of my favorite songs begins just as I start to drive.

  • Getting to the register and finding out something is 30% off and I didn't know it!

  • Getting unexpected mail.

  • Having a long laugh with an old friend without even having to vocalize what's so funny.

  • Coming home after a long day at work to a waiting glass of wine and a hug that goes on for days.

  • Making that final car payment/ credit card payment/ etc.

  • The feeling I have in the pit of my stomach on Christmas Eve.

  • Knowing that the man beside me is the one I was supposed to find and spend the rest of my life with.

  • Enjoying spontaneous happy hour on the first warm Friday afternoon on the patio of my favorite bar with my girlfriends.

  • Collapsing on the couch Friday night and watching hours of trashy TV and not feeling an ounce of guilt b/c I know I earned it.

  • Putting on an old pair of pants and all of a sudden they're loose.

  • Knowing the best is yet to come.

    Being in love with my very best friend. He is amazing.

    That's all I can think of for now :)

  4. Waking up on a work day because you think you have overslept only to realize you still have a few hours left to sleep. Happened to me this morning!

    That unexplainable feeling of joy I get 10 minutes before it is time to go home from work on a Friday.

    Finding an old forgotten gift card in your wallet JUST at the time when you found something you couldn't live without.

    Packages in the mail.

    Looking at Christmas lights for hours in the car!

  13. Great list. Thanks for sharing. I especially like what you said about hearing your favorite song on the radio. I found your blog while searching for something.

    Since its relevant here and you might find it fun/useful. I also wanted to give a plug for a site Ive been working on that helps people share songs with their friends. It's free, easy and theres no account signup. Login with Facebook. Check it out if you get a chance. Hope you like it. Thanks!
