Eleven Things

Mrs. Figby has asked people to post eleven things in their everyday lives that make them happy. I'm trying to spend more time being thankful, so I jumped all over this one. Here are eleven things in my everyday life that make me happy:

My Laptop. I heart my Mac. I use it every day.

My picture wall. I took some pictures down to update them. There are usually more pics in the upper left hand corner. Just looking at this wall is enough to make me smile.

My dog. She can be a pain and her nickname is "Cujo" because she becomes vicious around people she doesn't know, but she is so very happy to see me when I come home at the end of the day.

My craft area. Often referred to as my "crap" area. Since it has been cleaned up I feel inspired to go there and create more. Yes, this is clean. You should have seen it before.

I can't very well mention the dog without mentioning the cat. We've had her for fifteen years. I don't know why she looks so pissed off in this picture. I assure you she was not.

My Blog friends. I visit them every day.

The Baby's room. Usually the door to this room remains shut and neither of us go in there very often. I have been spending a lot of time in there lately and sometimes I just sit on the floor amongst the toys and the books and the baby stuff and I imagine an actual baby in there someday.

This Lavender Rosemary lotion. It smells heavenly. I use it every day.

Our granite counter tops. They did a lot of upgrades when we moved into our new apartment, and this was one of them. They are soooooo nice. Sometimes I am still surprised to see them when I go in there and I'm like Dude. Granite counter tops. Sweet.

My bathroom. This is my girly bathroom. No one goes in there but me. That means there isn't any crap all over the counters, and the toilet is always clean and there are never any spots on the mirror. I will have to share this room when Sophie comes home, but for now it is mine. All mine.

My bed. This is not my bed. I wish it was. My own bed is currently unmade and covered in a pile of laundry that needs folding. My bed is however, extremely comfortable. Especially after spending several nights on an inflatable air mattress.

I could go on. But I won't. So, what things in your everyday life make you happy?

Hi Michelle,
would LOVE for you to participate in 3 WORDS Sunday. Just post the photo on you blog on Sunday, or email it to me (jetersmama@gmail.com) and I will include you in the video.
Just leave me comment letting me know you have posted your photo (or just email it to me)
btw, I think you are making up the cojo story - your dog looks too sweet

Oooh I WANT granite countertops! Way cool! I love Sophie's chest of drawers..so so girlie! And sharing a bathroom isn't too bad as long as it's NOT a male :-) Kylie and I share but we're not as "girlie" as you are :-) Thanks for sharing!
PS> WAAAAAAY to go! Another month CLOSER to Sophie.

Good ones! I came over from Mrs. Figby's to see what you put. And then looking around your blog, I have a freaky feeling I know you from somewhere. I'll email you.
