    I just got a new pair of running shoes. For me the 110. spent is a major purchase. They feel so good and I am bouncing around the house in them. Wish it was warmer out.

    My knee and hip are bothering me. I think it was the shoes.

    My dogs :lovestruc They are happy to see me whether it's first thing in the morning, when I get home from work, or if I just walk into the room.

    A cup of hot tea or coffee.

    The birds outside my front window on the feeder.

    The big hug I get from my husband when he comes home from work every day.

    A sunny day in the middle of Winter! :sunny:

    When you get a check in the mail for over $200 because you overpaid your school taxes when you refinanced your house last year! WooHoo! That was mail worth getting from the USPS today!! And it came just in time to put towards our $750 oil delivery we got yesterday. :(

    I just had a really good chicken sandwich for lunch. It was nothing special but it tasted extra good. I am happy about that right now. :)

    I stopped in Rue21 last week & grabbed 3 pairs of jeans & a skirt for DD12 off the clearance rack. 2 of the jeans went back, but she loved 1 pair and REALLY loved the skirt. And they fit! She took a picture of the skirt & texted it to all her friends bragging about how good her dad did - wore the skirt yesterday. Like most guys, I don't exactly have the best fashion sense, so I felt pretty good about this :)

    Oh, and the jeans she kept were $7 and the skirt $3 :cool1:

    I'm actually reading the book, One Thousand Gifts. I am making a list of the things, big and small, that I am thankful for. There are so, so many!! :)

    When my baby girl looks at me and giggles. Also, her kisses on my cheek and her "hugs" (she hasn't quite gotten the hang of hugs yet, but she does put her arms around my neck and squeeze a little :) ).

    I am also happy that the Easter Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs are showing up in stores-I know they have Valentines and Christmas Trees, but the Easter Egg ones are my absolute favorite.
