the simple things - 1st edition.

i'm following my favorite workaholic momma's lead & linking up with jesslyn amber to share with you all some of the things that i'm appreciative for this week.  sometimes in life, we need to slow down & realize that it's the simple things in life that really matter the most.

this week i'm appreciative for...
  • a quiet, semi-clean home. that will all change this weekend...
  • phone calls from my kids oozing with excitement about standing on the hurricane deck at niagara falls during the cave of the winds tour.
  • my awesome parents who have not only kept my children for the last two weeks, but have also traveled with them to boston & toronto.
  • walks on the beach with this guy & these two pups:

  • meeting new friends & having the opportunity to spend time with a good friend.
  • hearing color me badd on the radio {really, i did!}
  • catching up on three weeks worth of laundry {never mind that some of it needs to be put away}.
  • the bounty of cucumbers from our garden & the satisfaction that comes from NOT having to wash layers of wax or chemicals off of them before we eat them.
  • knowing that our patio is alllllllllmost finished:
{there's efflorescence in the brick - they were factory seconds - and my bricklayer husband doesn't mind it.}
  • snuggles with the pups.
  • gloomy, rainy mornings...
  • having the television set to a channel other than nickelodeon or disney.
  • running into my former {now retired} boss from my first big girl job after college {he was behind me in the checkout line at target}.
  • free froyo for two thanks to a coupon & menchie's money.
  • this guy...even though he ate a pair of my shoes last week {my lily mckim's} & completely destroyed our okra plants yesterday:

what simple things are you appreciative for?

Your blog is so cute! I really like the pattern of the brick for your patio. It looks great!

I'm feeling appreciative of this gorgeous weather, Skinnygirl Margarita, and my job :)
