The Little Things

I have been in such a good mood lately.

And really, there’s no big reason for it.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 23 years of life, it’s that it’s all about the little things.  Yeah, getting promoted, buying your dream house, winning the lottery, etc. is great (and I totally wouldn’t mind any of those things :P), but the little things add up too!

It’s leaving yoga at sunset and catching some trees all decked out in Christmas lights.

I admitted to Joey last night that although I detest cold weather, I really enjoy going out on winter nights and seeing all the lights and decorations.  Christmas happiness overrules my hatred of the cold.  Also, how good is a toasty yoga class on a cold night?

It’s finding a bag of Hershey’s White Chocolate Meltaways in the breakroom at work and adding a little bliss to my work day.

If I’m being honest, I’ve always had a soft spot for white chocolate.  There’s a time and a place for dark chocolate (like when you want to pretend the chocolate you’re eating is “healthy”) but there’s also a time for milk and white chocolate.  

And that time is apparently 12:30 on a Monday.

It’s getting a mani/pedi with your best friend on a Tuesday night.

In addition to a toasty yoga class, a piping hot foot soak is equally amazing on a winter night.  Plus we got to discuss important matters like online Coach sales, suspicions that your mom might like your boyfriend more than she likes you and our thoughts on men getting pedicures.

I went with OPI’s “Didjeridoo Your Nails?”

It’s listening to this song and wondering how it’s even possible to have a voice as good as Ray LaMontagne’s.

FYI, this song is extra good if you listen to it while you’re laying in bed, right before you go to sleep.

It’s having a home-cooked meal with your family and realizing how lucky you are to have a mom who’s such an amazing cook.

And who has the brilliant idea to cook some chili then cook some mac and cheese and layer the one over the other.

My mom confessed to adding an extra layer of cheese to the macaroni.  I could hardly scoop it into my bowl with all the strings of cheese oozing everywhere.  Extra cheese = extra love.

It’s picking up your Turkey Trot bib and being super excited to rock a 5K before indulging in two delicious Thanksgiving celebrations.

Crossing my fingers (and toes!) that I’m one of the random racers who wins $500.  Because that’s probably the closest I’ll ever get to winning the lottery.

It’s also skipping your workout to sit on the couch and mindlessly watch TV, with a candle burning and the heat on high.  Yeah, it’s definitely that.


Tomorrow is Friday, how are you celebrating the kickoff to the weekend?

What little things made you happy this week?

White, milk or dark chocolate?


One thought on “The Little Things

  1. Love the color you chose for your nails 😀 I have that one in my collection and it’s one of my favorites. And I couldn’t agree with you more about the happiness that comes from just vegging out on the couch sometimes… and it doesn’t hurt when milk chocolate is involved either 😉
