The Best Parts of My Day

In an attempt to be more grateful for the "little things" that I usually take for granted, I started thinking about the things that I look forward to each and every day. The little things that are so mundane and routine, but they make me so happy at the same time.

So - in chronological order, here are the absolute best parts of my day...

My morning cup of joe, (although right now, it's spark) the second my eyes open

Binky's ridiculously adorable routine of yawning and stretching, oh and we can't forget the crazy bed head he has every morning

Chatting with my mama on the way to work

Clocking out from work at 5 o'clock

Taking off my shoes and usually my bra (hey, just keepin' it real!) the second I walk in the door

Binky acting a damn fool when I get home from work because he's so excited to see me

Competing with Nate on Jeopardy and/or Wheel of Fortune and watching re-runs of The Office on Netflix

Making dinner for Nate and myself

Relaxing on the couch while Nate cleans up the kitchen after dinner

Washing my hair

Taking my nightly meds

Laying in bed with my computer writing/reading blogs

Reading a couple of chapters of whatever book I'm reading before bed

Ya know, after doing this I realize I love all of the things about my day. Well, except those 8 hours I'm at work. ;) and even then, those usually aren't all that bad.

What are the best parts of your day?

I love coming home and cooking dinner too. It's a stress reliever for me, with the exception of nights the dinner does not turn out. Which happened last night and I have to have a pregnant lady meltdown :)

I hear you on that first one girl! Sometimes that is what gets me out of bed in the morning lol

PS- It was great to see you this past weekend; I wish I had more time to meet you more.

Coming home to my husband and pups is exactly what I look forward to every night! And coffee in the morning helps to pull me out of bed the next day. BTW love the pic of Binky in bed, so cute!

Looks like a good day to me! (especially the Keurig, since mine is out of commission)!!

I think I speak for 6 people when I say where is the group text on this list!?

Haha at Neely! Also, I am totally guilty of changing the second I walk in the door. I hate bras.

Meghan said...

When I come home and my dogs get all excited is my favorite part of the day too!

SEL said...

I love this post.

And I agree with so much of it. I take my bra off as soon as I walk in the door.

I love greeting my dogs. And clean hair is awesome.

And and and.

I love this list. And you. xo

I thought my husband and I were the only ones under 60 who watched the Wheel more often than not! We love it!

There is nothing more I enjoy then waking up with a cup of coffee..even in my office. And when the bra comes off, that is when the real relaxing begins!

Lauren said...

Binky is seriously the cutest, oh my :-)

Meghan said...

I love that you have paid homage to the little things! It's so funny how sometimes the littlest moments can bring us such joy!

I loved reading what makes your day. :) It truly is the little things that matter. (I think anyway!!)
