Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens (Meme Monday)

I LOVE holiday weekends! I mean, really! I LURVE them!

What's not to like? Time off work, get togethers, sunshine, good food, laughter, no work, oh, and did I mention the time off work?!?

The joy brought to me by this holiday weekend got me to counting my blessings and joys, which got me thinking of some of my favorite things.

Now, I don't mean things like my daughter, husband, and family because DUR! Of COURSE they're top of my list!

I got to thinking about my favorite indulgences - the things I do to spoil myself, reward myself, console myself.

And THAT got me curious as to what YOUR favorite indulgences are!

If I share, will you?

Pretty please....?

Here goes:
*Blended Coke floats from Sonic (Seriously, try one. It'll change your life!)

*Coke (more specifically, Coke that's been in the back of the fridge and is really cold, poured into a cup without ice and finished before that frigid temp wears off)

*Massages (I am not able to get them often, but if I could afford to get one a week, I would.)

*Murder mystery books (I usually read 1 or 2 a week - it's sad, really.)

*Sunday afternoon naps

*Great shoes (this doesn't necessarily mean expensive - just the kind that make you feel beautiful/sexy/cute when you wear them)

*A fabulous playlist (I made one for T's birthday party - which, incidentally, almost no on heard over all the kids - that all had either "Summer" or "Sun" mentioned in the chorus or title. It's awesome and I've rocked out to it a few times since.)

*Homemade iced coffees - they're healthier than store-bought ones (and WAY lower points in my Weight Watchers), cheaper, and SO MUCH BETTER!!!

*An interuption-free day spent crafting/sewing/scrapbooking/creating (Ok, let's be honest, this is a pipe-dream - hasn't happened in AGES, but...)

What are some of YOUR favorite things? ('Cause I'm guessing it's not Schnitzel with noodles.)

Love & Shipoopies,

YOur list was pretty good. I could go for a massage right now and a pedi. But I can never get the iced coffee at home to taste nearly as good as Dunkin Donuts. Mimi runs on Dunkin my friend.

Off the top of my head, here are some things that make me feel smiley inside.
Coke Zero cold without ice is something that I live for, especially since I have been pregnant and nursing and limiting caffeine.
Baking homemade cakes, cookies, and lately pies. Mmmmmmm!
Hearing an old song that I haven't thought about in a long time, but it totally brings me back to a certain time in my life.
Uploading pictures from the camera to see some really great shots
Getting my hair cut and feeling totally awesome because it looks so nice when someone else blows it dry and fixes it.
The end of a weekend where I feel like I had time to play, got a lot done, and am prepared for the start of the week.
