I saw this on Tina’s blog in the beginning of the month & I thought it was a great idea!
I say it all the time but it truly is the little things in life that can make it fantastic!
With that being said, here is a list of things that make me smile:
A – Apples. Preferably Pink Lady apples. They are by far my favorite!
B – BLC. My favorite person in the world. He deals with my craziness & loves me just the same I’m super lucky to have him in my life (BLC, you are stuck with me for-ev-er!)
C – Coffee. Flavored coffees, iced coffees, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, bodega coffee. I just love coffee
.65 cent coffee – amazing!
D – Dancing. Now, when I say dancing I mainly mean watching other people dance. I love shows like So You Think You Can Dance & America’s Best Dance Crew. I love going to a concert or club & watching people dance. & occasionally you will catch me swaying to the music but I’d rather leave it to the people who can DANCE
E – Eagles. I am a giant football fan (can’t wait for the season to start! It’s like Christmas!!) & since I am from Philadelphia originally, obviously my NFL team is the Eagles! Go birds!
F – Freckles. Could you have guessed what I was gonna write for F? If not, you don’t even know me But in all seriousness, Freckles can make me smile just by laying there. She is the sweetest little animal of life. I love her.
G – Gerber Daisies. When I worked at a flower shop, I fell in love with gerbs (slang for people in the know. I’m super cool). They are just so bright & cheery!
My absolute fav are the white ones with the pink center. So pretty!
H – HOUSE! I was never a big fan of house music until recently but it definitely pumps me up! I love the strong beats & build ups. Plus, house concerts are by far the best! Check out some of my favorite house songs to run to.
I – Ikea. Pretty sure our entire apartment is from Ikea. Plus, I could walk around that place for hours!!
J – Jeans. I love jeans. You can dress them up, dress them down. I pretty much live in jeans. & my middle name is Jean so there’s that…
K – Kettle Corn. Yum! Salty & subtly sweet. Great combo.
L – Lox. This is where the Jew in me comes out. I just love Lox & cream cheese on a bagel. Delish!
M – Magazines. I probably subscribe to about 9 magazines & have a pile of magazines to read at all times. To be honest, it is probably a little excessive but I love them!
N – NYC. As of you couldn’t tell, I’m in love with NYC. The energy, the people, all of the amazing things to do at any given time – I love it all. I’m so happy to have the opportunity to live here.
O – Oyster Shooters. I don’t know what it is about oyster shooters but I get so excited when we go to a place that has them! (For those that don’t know, oyster shooters are an oyster, horseradish, cocktail sauce & pepper vodka in a shot glass – & they are delicious IMHO)
P – Pickles. Pickled veggies, pickled tomatoes, regular pickles…every kind except the Bread and Butter pickles – those are gross.
Q – Quinoa. Such a great food! Filling, versatile & good for you. Can’t ask for much more.
R – Running! Running is my stress relief. It can always change my mood for the better. & I feel super accomplished after a good race – that is a great feeling!
S – Sushi & Sake. Sushi is definitely one of my favorite foods & Nigori (unfiltered sake) is the perfect compliment. Sake bombs are pretty awesome, too.
T – Trader Joe’s. Duh.
U – US Weekly. One of my many magazine subscriptions but this one gets pushed to the top of the pile every week. Definitely one of my guilty pleasures.
V- Vegetable Soup. I could eat Veggie soup every day.
W – Whiskey. I am definitely a whiskey girl. I prefer scotch but a good whiskey is fine by me! In fact, one of my favorite places in NYC is a whiskey bar called The Post Office. & they have a pickle plate <3
X – Xerox Machines. Now this was a hard one. But xerox machines are pretty great. Who would want to copy documents by hand? Great invention…& the only legit word I could think of that starts with an X.
Y – Yelp. I use Yelp.com for everything! Choosing restaurants, bars, doctors, hotels…I figure if enough people like/dislike a place, you will know what to expect. I haven’t been let down yet. Love Yelp!
Z – Zzzzz’s. Sleep is my favorite. I always feel much better when I get more sleep & I love sleeping in.
What are some simple things in your life that make you smile??
