Growing up my initials were OP, which was pretty cool in the 80's, right? Then I got married and my initials got updated to match our very texting obsessed era that we now live in (and shake our heads at)...OMG. For those who are texting illiterate, I'll spell it out..."Oh, My God!". I pity the girl whose initials are W.T.F. (I won't spell that one out. You can Google it or email me for an explaination on that one!)

Ten Small Things

I'm not a blog-originalist. I'm a blog copy-cat. It's just that there are so many great ideas out there that inspire me to blog. Here's another one based on a list that Amanda did that I thought was cute and a good way to share about me and my life. That's kind of the point of this, you know.



These are "10 Small Things" that make my life enjoyable and manageable.

Organization:
Don't hate me because I have a huge walk-in pantry....


I don't follow recipes well, (except for baking because that's a science) but I do love measuring cups and spoons. So much so that I need this on my counter. Seriously, I use measuring cups and spoons many, many times a day. I'm weird that way.
Phototgraphs:

I put them everywhere...Facebook, my blog, laptop background, photo album on coffee table, on the walls all over the house, photo albums on my laptop.
I get mine printed exclusively at Ritz Pics.


I couldn't do it without my awesome camera! Brian has taught me how to use the manual settings and now that's all I use. How did I ever take decent pics before this little guy? This camera rocks my world!



Cleaning Items:

I love the smell of these. Found at Sprouts. I keep them both on my sink all the time. Can use the countertop spray everywhere and the freshness and matching smells makes it okay to be cleaning and doing the dishes all the time.


I love my dishwasher! We picked it out and Brian installed it. I got to pick out my own dishwasher! That was one of our first married projects last year. I love how it looks like stainless steel inside. (it's not, but it sure looks sharp!)
EDIT:Oops! I was wrong! It IS stainless steel! Proof that my husband is reading my blog! :)My splurge...yeah, maybe powder mix is way cheaper but I love these little guys. I'm sort of addicted to them. I can't imagine using anything else, ever. You know you want to try them...

Liquid Refreshment:
How to start my day...

And how to end it...


Saved the BEST for last:
My Sweetie. None of that other stuff really matters.
All I need is him to make my life enjoyable.
