Because it’s the day before Thanksgiving and everybody’s doing it, right?! Ha. Yesterday at work I thought I had a moment in the bathroom where I thought, “aww the little things,” and I knew I needed to write a post. And no, it’s not what you’re thinking.
I love knowing that I am the first one to use the toilet since it’s been cleaned at work. How do I know this? Because the toilet seat is still up, just like the cleaning people have left it since they scrubbed it the night before. Aww yeahhh virgin toilet seat.
Cookies. I can’t say enough about them so I will just leave at that. COOKIES.
The Nordstrom holiday catalog. It has brought me unending joy this week. Sometimes the good things and stuff are actually THINGS and STUFF. I’m not ashamed to admit it. Presents are awesome, buying them for others, scouting and plotting, receiving. The whole thing. I love it TOO much.
Having a day where Kamel works downtown and we get to meet for coffee and lunch. I love having him close by.
Friends who understand your crazy. That ish is key, right there.
Salsa. Lots and lots and lots of salsa, all different flavors and colors. Mm Mm Mm… get in my belly!
Crisp fall mornings at the farmer’s market.
Discovering new fruits and vegetables and taking on new culinary expeditions.
The looming 4 day weekend. Deciding not to go anywhere, which means more naps, more catching up on house stuff, more cooking and recipe exploring. Perhaps even breaking out the crock-pot. (!!!)
Ok, this is kind of silly…. but whatever. I love getting “likes” on photos we post on instagram. It is so FUN. And I know that it doesn’t technically “mean” anything, but I still get a kick out of it. So there! cynical social media people! I said it! Instagram = a small part of my joy.
Lately I have really really loved waking up next to Kamel. Not like the theoretical “waking up next to my husband, oh aren’t I blessed” way, but the actual, physical, specific way. I like that he, in particular, is there in the mornings. And lately he has been a trooper with how sleepy I am and how sleepy he is, but he still rolls over and flips on the light and then we cuddle or hold hands while we watch a little news before the start of our day. I really like that.
Jam on warm buttery dinner rolls.
Christmas music while cleaning the house. I can’t help it, it’s so cheesy but I know all of the words and it makes me so happy.
When people say that I look “cute” and “tiny” as a pregnant person when really I feel like I look like a giant egg. Aka Humpty Dumpty. Thank you kind people! Thank you one and all!
Finally getting around to returning those maternity clothes that didn’t work and oooo look! More money in my bank account! Score!
**What are your small happies this week/month? What has made you do a little dance inside yourself? What get’s you through the day? What do you look forward to? Where is your joy?
