Why not make a list of things that make us happy?

Sometimes I need a little reminder of the things that can bring a smile to my face.

I like:

Cars with heated seats
Grilled cheese sandwiches
Laughing so hard I cry
Comfort food
Wine and cheese
My kids making me laugh
Grilled cheese and bacon
Spending quiet time with my bf......
I think thats it!
Walking barefoot in the sand
Strawberry daquirris
Going on a shopping spree
Warm weather
The beach
Hitting all the green lights
Camping trips
The feeling of accomplishemnt i get after sticking to my weekly work out routine
Springtime and summer
Starting the day with a huge cup of coffee or a big dr. pepper
Losing 5 pounds on my new diet
My children.
My beasties
Working in my shop making my soaps, candles and other b&b stuff.
Sleeping in.
Clean bedding.
A snuggly robe, warm slippers, hot coffee made with fresh ground beans in my French coffee press and not having to be any where at any particular time.
Steak and potatoes
Root beer floats
Cheese fries

(All mine are food related. I MUST be hungry!!)
Cuddling up with my dog
