i love a good list. and i am having a rough day so i thought it a good idea of make a list of the things that are currently making me happy.

1.  i am just finding pinterest.  if you are a visual person you will love it. i love my google reader but when i save anything of interest it all goes into one list which makes searching difficult and tedious.  pinterest makes it easy to “bookmark” and then later find your inspiration.  i love it and i think you will too.

2.  flowers from the husband.  last night he knew i was in need of some extra love.  now i have beautiful purple flowers greeting me. they make me smile. he makes my heart smile.

3.  the hoover floor mate.  it is a 3-in-1 cleaner that vacuums, washes, and dries.  i haven’t used it as a vacuum so i can’t attest to that feature. but if you have hard floors this is by far the best cleaner i have found.  you can use cleaner but you can also just use water.  we limit chemicals in this house and find the water along with the scrub brushes works great.  the water you put out is scrubbed with the brushes and then immediately sucked back into a different container.  it is easy to clean and easy to use.  with all the dog and human foot traffic this is my go to cleaner on the hard woods.

4.  l’oreal’s color-safe sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.  since i love my pink streaks i want to keep them colorful for longer. i had already switched to a sulfate-free hair care before but struggled to find a color-safe brand that i liked.  i was surprised to find that i liked this so much! at $5.99 it is a steal and the smell is amazing.

5.  a clean house.  yesterday i cleaned, cleaned, cleaned.  today i am planning to organize my craft room.  organization makes me tremendously happy.  we are chipping away at our garage and it is becoming an organized space.

6.  brown rice cakes with a teaspoon of nutella spread on top.  i don’t think i have ever tasted something so delicious.

7. national kissing day was the other day.  did you celebrate?  i think it should be extended to national kissing month.  we are pretending so in this house.
