Doesn't Take Much To Make Me Happy...

I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend!  
We have been busy, busy, busy!  
I slept in today and woke up 
in such a great mood.  
I have been fighting with my sinuses lately 
and it always seems to get me down.  
Literally and mentally!  
But today as I was puttering about the house, 
I looked around at all of the things 
that made me smile 
and wanted to share them with you.
These are from our Costco trip yesterday.  
The hydrangeas in my garden are doing well also.  
I mostly have green and white this year but that's OK.

These new kitchen towels make me really happy!  
I was out looking for new kitchen rugs 
and came across these cute grain sack towels.  
Every time I walk by I just smile!  
See, I told you it doesn't take much...
The Sunshine after the rain today.  
It rained all morning which was just fine with me.  
But now the sun is out and the yard looks so pretty.
Pandora on my television!  
We upgraded our Directv recently 
and got the whole Genie system.  
So much FUN!  
I love having Pandora on the TV!  
I currently have it programmed to Disco 
just to bug the heck out of everyone!  
YES, I do that!  
And that's probably where the title came from...
sidenote... I am addicted to Song Pop!  
Please help me before
I have to enter the 12 step program...
(I really rock at it tho)

I made this Key Lime Pie yesterday for dessert.  
Fun fact:  
Did you know that Stressed 
spelled backwards is Desserts? ;)
Can I just tell you that being a food blogger 
would be a million times harder.  
I could barely get a photo before 
someone scooped up the plate 
and started eating it!  
Which brings me to the last thing 
that makes me happy!  
The whole family was here 
for dinner last night!  
Now that REALLY makes me HAPPY!
What makes YOU happy?

Have a wonderful Sunday!
Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

The simple things make me happy too, Cindy. :-) And a piece of that key lime pie would make me REALLY happy right about now. I love Pandora, but have never put it on TV. I suppose with my HDMI cable I could do that, in the same way I watch movies on my computer>TV that way.

Hope your evening is just as pleasant today.

Cindy: Great Post! I believe we all take for granted too much and nice to see your take on "what we love" every day!
Would you share where you found your grain sack towels? They look does that Pie!
Thanks and Hugs, Joy

Yesterday WAS a great day, and like you, I was so, so happy to finally see some significant rainfall. It was a big surprise to me since I (quite uncharacteristically) didn't watch any news on Saturday. It was so nice to wake up to the soft rumble of thunder. Such good sleeping weather!!! And it turned out to be a really nice afternoon, too. That definitely made me happy!

Your hydrangeas look so pretty! Costco really has nice ones, and you got the cream of the crop.

As for that key lime pie, I find it curious that I live so close and yet was not invited over to partake! ;-)

Hydrangeas are my favorites. The Keylime pie looks delicious. Glad you had a good weekend.
