(Note: Reader input will be like totally appreciated...for sure! You all are so Rad! I don't know what I'd do without ya!) That was written in my best valley girl impression...one of the "little things" I love to do.
You may call me a simpleton, or say I'm just plain weird, but the fact is, I get great pleasure out of the little things in life. The other day I was ecstatic about finding a hidden compartment for my iPod inside my new jogging shorts. It absolutely made my day! I told my Facebook friends that it felt like I had just found a twenty dollar bill in the washing machine. Thankfully, my friends understand my weirdness, and don't de-friend me because of my high volume of seemingly random, insignificant posts.
Honestly, if I just wrote about the really big stuff that happens in my life, I'd be silent for months at a time. Besides, I'm a firm believer in celebrating the little things. They're the stuff that life is made of!
I love it when I treat my kids to a 1/2 priced Sonic drink during Happy Hour, and I find out that I'm the lucky recipient of a coupon for an additional free Large Drink at the bottom of my receipt! That makes my day!
I like cleaning out boxes and stumbling across really old pictures where my hair was ridiculously big. Then I like laughing about it with my kids.
I enjoy reading the Sunday comics in the newspaper after church.
I love painting my toenails in outrageous ways with my girls.
I get a kick out of loudly singing every single word of a stupid old song that was popular when I was in Jr. High while holding a wooden spoon microphone...while cooking dinner...while my kids laugh and hold their hands over their ears and roll their eyes. (Evidently, I love run-on sentences too.)
I love to mow my lawn diagonally into diamond shapes.
I love collecting warm eggs right out from underneath my hens.
I enjoy putting Cheetos in the middle of my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It's a delicious week day delicacy.
I like drinking out of mason jars.
I like putting decorative sprinkles on our oatmeal.
I love to write mushy love notes and put them in my husband's lunchbox...complete with XOXOXO.
I could blab on and on about the simple things I enjoy, but I'm going to turn this over to you, my prized readers. I want to know about the little things that you really love. Whether you are one of my faithful followers, just a blog browser, or a silent blog stocker, just shout out one of your simple pleasures in the comments!
