What are your simple pleasures?
You know . . . the little, seemingly insignificant self-indulges
that just make you smile. :o)

For me it's getting my morning
coffee just right . . .

You see, my morning coffee can sometimes be kind of like a science project - just the right amount of freshly-ground hazelnut bean coffee, two sweetners and finished up with good sized splash of sugar-free International Delights French Vanilla creamer.

New nails . . .

Well, getting my bi-monthly acrylic fill and French manicure. I love when they're all new and bright and shiny and not chippy. (doesn't take long for them to get wrecked cleaning houses!)

When a new magazine shows up in the mailbox . . .

Today it was the February edition of Country Living. The Bargain Issue!

Climbing into a bed that's been graced with newly laundered sheets . . .

Not my bed . . . unfortunately. This would be one of my many "dream bedrooms".

A perfectly mixed Cosmopolitan . . .

My fave Ketel One vodka, Patron Citronge, a splash of cranberry and twist of citrus . . .
Hubby makes the best.
He knows what I like!

What are some of your simple pleasures?

Thanks for visiting!
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

Let's make things easy and allow me to copy your list! I could very easily have written it! Add a big bowl of "Pop Secret homestyle" popcorn, add a blanket, watching a movie, drinking that Cosmo and I am a happy girl.
(I knew I had seen that exact same comment that you saw on my blog somewhere must have been here....exact same words...I get spam comments from time to time but that one seemed weird to me too!)

A cold Coke, a good magazine, and a bag of two bite brownies !!! HEAVEN!!! I love your list.....I feel relaxed just reading it.

I love your simple pleasures and some of mine are the same. I LOVE my Country Living magazines (I've already read my latest issue), coffee with Nestle CoffeeMate FF Hazelnut creamer, Crystal Light Peach Tea, snuggling with my pets, weekends and a roaring fireplace!

My simple pleasure is having my first cup of coffee, in a quiet house, on my laptop uninterrupted and without having to rush anywhere.

Carla, I wish I drank coffee, all the wonderful flavors you can add to sounds lovely. I'm a tea girl and my weakness is Chai. A day of simple pleasure for me would be a trip to my favorite coffee shop to meet a friend and a get tall-skinny-Chai.
