As I was reading Shell's blog, Stuttering Shell, I loved her idea. So much so that I decided that I would follow and do the same--some of my loves at the moment. Grab your wine {or other drink} and enjoy.

*A close parking spot

*Stepping on the scale and seeing that I am 1 pound away from my weight when I got pregnant with Madelyn


*Sleeping and listening to the rain

*A perfectly made cup of coffee

*Finding a new Etsy shop that I love

*That perfect pair of shoes

*A new wine that is a-maz-ing

*Capturing a perfect moment with my camera

*Reading so many fabulous blogs

*Getting lost in a good book

*Good hair days

*Laughing until I cry

*Fried ice cream

*Sephora and Ulta

*Cute coffee mugs

*Spring flowers

What are some of your loves?

How could I forget Sephora AND Ulta?! Ugh...shame on me!!

And, yes, I, love, love the sound of rainfall especially when I'm snuggled up tight in my bed. I can do without the thunderstorms, though. ;)

Mine is an elusive love right now -- sleeeeeping!!! And lately, I've just been loving our house. It's our first, and I love it so much i even love cleaning it. :-)

Tara said...

Great list. I agree with all of them but especially laughing until I cry. That is a really good one. For me, I love shopping end of season sales and trying new recipes.

Krissy said...

I wish I was close to my pre pregnancy weight! LOL Congrats on that!!

Jennifer-Eighty MPH Mom said...

Hmmm my loves?

My family

When my husband kisses my forehead

Head butts from my kitty

A steaming Starbucks coffee

Snuggling in bed while it's raining outside

Lazy Sunday mornings

The first flowers of the new year

The sunroof open on my car, while my favorite song plays

Good A.M Chelle-

Thanks for stopping by the garden.

Here are a few of mine at the moment....

Temps. above 30

Waves hitting the beach

No workman ringing the door bell at 7am

That extra glass of Cab at the end of a long day

Long afternoon nap snuggled in a Ripple.

Green grass

Pots overflowing with flowers

My new Macro Len

Fresh flowers on the counter

Coffee ready when I wake up

All my blogging buddies in blogland. Especially, a new posting by Lucy over at

Finding a new blog like this that I REALLY want to follow.

Coasting in bed for that extra 15 minutes on a rainy Sunday morning

Boxes arriving via Mr. Brown full of new yummie colors of yarn

Taking that perfect picture

Great ideas inspired by friends

Knowing when to stop....and on that notes.

Kristi said...

Well you stole a lot of my "loves"....

feeling Avery move - it makes me laugh!

pampering myself - not sure how often I'll be able to do this in a few months

buying new bras :) AND wearing new bras

working out

going to the park on a warm sunny day to walk AND to read a book or magazine

a nice glass of wine (getting closer...only about 9 weeks until I can have one!)

That'sbout it for my "loves"...wish I was going to see you guys this weekend, but we will take LOTS of pics and hopefully we'll see you guys soon :)

The numbers going down when I step on a scale! Fabulous.

The Mommyologist said...

We have so many of the same loves! Some of my others at the moment are...

The neighbor waiting until after 6am to turn on the snowblower.

Citrus vodka and soda with a splash of cranberry. SO yummy!

My irreplaceable blog buddies!

Love ya girl!

sitting on the mood swing at the playground said...

I'm so with you on shoes, wine, thunderstorms, books, etc. Today I love that my 3-year-old slept late. Late enough that I was showered and dressed for work before I heard "Mommy" for the first time.

Homesick Cajun said...

I love when my husband does little things for me, like renewing my antivirus on my laptop when it ran out and leaving me a not on top of it saying what he did and that he loves me!

I love how thoughtful he is!

The Pipster said...

My boys, my BF, pedicures, massages, getting my hair cut, reading a good trashy magazine, laying in the hot sun on a beautiful beach...just to name a few loves.

Just Another Mom of 2 said...

I love this list!! I'm with you on a great new wine-- and just the perfect cheese to go with it! I also love when my kids sleep late, a great book, and a stormy night. Happy Thursday :)

Anonymous said...

I heart these simple pleasures. I am with you on the coffee ones. For sure! :0)

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

Oh, I cannot wait for those spring flowers to start popping up. So tired of this dreary cold weather!

Sarah said...

Sephora and Ulta are definitely on my list! I am a complete addict, and could spend hours just browsing the aisles!
