I was thinking about how happy I’ve been lately.  Granted, there’s been some stress in my life, but even with that, I just have this overall feeling of contentment.  Life is good.  I’m blessed with a job that I love and can do from home, a schedule that allows me to focus on my kids when I need to and juggle other responsibilities. I have a husband who loves me and supports me in all my crazy ideas and two not-so-little girls that I adore (and who like me most of the time, too).

On top of all that, there are the little things that make me happy. 

Here are a few little things that have made me happy lately:

  1. Werther’s Original Sugar Free Caramel Coffee candiesimage
    These are sooo good. You can’t tell they are sugar free and they give a great coffee and caramel flavor. Very rich tasting. I feel like I’m getting away with something when I eat one of these.
  2. My Droid image
    How did I ever survive without this thing?  Seriously. I take it EVERYWHERE
    (even the bathroom, but that is probably TMI, isn’t it?)
    It’s like having a laptop in your pocket. I can find out anything I want to know anytime, anywhere. Directions, updates from my friends on Facebook, emails from work, movie times, restaurants, etc.  I’m so addicted, the darn thing should probably have a name (like Beatrice Nook does)
  3. My Knitting

    After stepping away from the hot yarn for the summer, I’m so enjoying getting back into my knitting. I find such peace as I’m sitting at the dance studio waiting for the girls to finish up classes and knitting my little heart out. I guess I’m a kinesthetic person, because the physical act of knitting is like a balm to my soul. It just really calms me and focuses me. I have started knitting in the evenings for about 30 minutes before the bedtime rush. It has been really interesting to do that – I find I’m a lot more patient and calm for the monkeys’ bedtime when I do that.
  4. Beatrice Nook
    I love being able to read anything whenever/wherever I want. I also love the fact that I have the Nook software on my Droid so I can read even if I forget Beatrice (the horror!) and find myself with a few extra moments somewhere.
  5. (this one may sound crazy to you) Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Detergent
    image Maybe crazy sounding, but I am loving this stuff. It gets out all kinds of stains and it has the best scent! I don't even think I need a dryer sheet when I’m finished with the washing.  The clothes are fresh, clean, and soft when I’m folding them. Love it.

  1. I LOVE the Arm & Hammer products too! BTW, speaking of dryer sheets – have you tried that brand!? Every time I go thru the checkout, ppl make comments because they smell so wonderful – and they are inexpensive too!
    Was wondering what type of work do you do from home? I’ve been considering doing that myself for a while….but can’t really find a niche yet.
    Love your blog, thanks!

  2. I work as a product manager for a software company. I’m just lucky that they believe in work/life balance and don’t care where you work as long as you work. So, home it is for me. 🙂
    Thanks for stopping by!
