Things That Made Me Happy Today

1.)Lovings from my baby.

2.) That sense of accomplishment that can only come from checking things off of your "To Do" list.
  • Clean bathroom
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Laundry
  • Run Dishwasher
  • Empty Dishwasher
  • Fix Obama Sign in Front Yard
  • Pay Bills
  • Go to Post Office

3.) Seeing how pretty my new cake plate (thanks mom!) look piled high with apples in the morning light.

4.) My hubby/daddy coming home from work to spend the evening at home with us.

5.) Making a perfect batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. (FYI: Easiest thing ever. I have started pre-mixing the dry ingredients for cookies in a freezer safe ziploc bag. I use a sharpie marker to write the remaining wet ingredients and directions onto the bag and throw the whole thing in the freezer. I keep a couple on hand for whenever I want some homemade cookies. I just grab a bag out of the freezer, let it come to room temp for a while, add the wet ingredients, and bake. Delicious! Better and cheaper than store bought mixes and super convenient.)

6.) Partaking of said cookies and seeing my family enjoy the fruits of my labor. (No pics of hubby since he was the incognito cookie eater.)

7.) Watching Emmy and Daddy play.

8.) Ending the day much as itbegan, snuggling with sweet Emmy Lou. Her cuddled into my armpit signing "more" each time I neared the end of a song in hopes of prolonging bedtime. And it worked...for a while. She has me wrapped around her little finger and I love every minute of it!

I remember loving days like that when you were the baby, too. Enjoy every minute of them.
