Anyway, here goes...
1.The way the rug looks after it has been vacuumed. I know it sounds OCD and sick -- but it looks brand new each time. I had a friend in grammar school who was never allowed to walk into her living room. The rug was always vacuumed a particular way so that her mom would see foot step indentations. I always thought of it like a museum.
2. This doesn't really count now that I'm not working, but when I wake up in the middle of the night and the clock says it's like 3 AM and I know I have several hours of sleep left.
3. Getting flowers. Who doesn't? I rarely get them, but when I do, it actually makes me cry real tears of joy. I'm weird like that. I get super emotional. Like at my bridal shower when I opened our Dyson, I cried. When I opened our KitchenAid stand mixer, I cried. When I found out my mom secretly ordered me a red velvet cake, I cried. That was a very tearful shower.

4. When I hear a weird noise and Hubs confirms it. OK, I know you're like, "Huh?" But I tend to be a bit paranoid and over sensitive to bumps and thumps. Many late nights, I'll be like, "What the hell was that?" and he'll say, "What? You're crazy. I didn't hear anything." But once in a blue moon he'll hear it too! Thus confirming that I'm not hearing things.
5. Cutting the grocery line. I love when I only have one or two items and someone cordially allows me to go on ahead of them. I always do this for people unless I'm in some mad rush.
6. When my mom calls. My mother-in-law calls us way too much, but I wish my mom would call me every day the way she does.
7. Bacon, egg and cheese on a roll. I just started Medifast on Tuesday and I'm dying. I mean, I'm doing well with it, shockingly. I just miss my crappy food. I could live on bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches. Honestly, if I had to chose one food item to live on, that would be it. It's going to be a very long time before I see another one if I continue Medifast.
8. The way I feel after I donate money. Even though I'm basically broke, I still try to donate where I can. I did the text for Haiti thing then I donated $25 for this Love Harder cause. It's a blogger that just found out her boyfriend has something called Multiple Myeloma. I donated here: http://loveharder.org/ and so can you!
9. Cool hotels. Last winter, Hubs attended this Beer Advocate beer festival. It was held in Boston and I sorta tagged along. Unlike him, I'm totally NOT into beer. He's a home-brewer and connoisseur of micobrews. He even won an award last summer and his beer is going to be on tap at a New Jersey brewpub soon. More on that another day. Anyway, I figured I could go up to Boston and do some shopping and site seeing. I hadn't been there in nearly 20 years! We stayed at this hotel, The Colonnade. It was amazing. Every little detail was perfect. I didn't want to leave. I wished I could just live in that room. It was decorated exactly in my favorite colors and was totally my taste in design. I loved how our room even had a Keuirg machine with K-cups for coffee and they escorted Hubs in a little Smart Car to his festival so he didn't have to walk in the cold!
10. Comments and followers! I'm not gonna lie. I love when you guys leave me feedback and when I see I have a new follower. I only have 95 today, but the day I break 100, I'll feel amazing. I really will.
