Top Ten Tuesday - Simple Pleasures

I'm participating in Amanda's "Top Ten Tuesday". Head over and check it out!

There are so many things in my life which bring me joy—I can’t really even begin to make a good list of the simple pleasures that I enjoy most, but here are 10 things that I absolutely love and that always bring a smile to my face.

1. Smiling!

I love it when other people smile…it always makes me happy! ^_^

2. Coffee Mugs

And I’ve got a googillion of them! But I bought two new ones the other day that I absolutely love. Aren’t they awesome?!

3. Poetry

I love reading the poetry written by my blogging buds every month for Monthly Monday Poetry. Make sure to check out yesterday’s post and read all of their awesome stuff!

4. Nancy Drew PC Games

These are the extent of my gaming skills…all brain, no action! Point and clicks are just my speed. I’m currently addicted to “Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis”, but I’m also working on “Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy”. Gah! I love ‘em!

5. Granny Smith Apples

Without a doubt, the best apples in the world. Can’t live without them.

6. Mechanical Pencils and Gel Pens

Can’t use anything else (aside from when I’m drawing)! What’s the point of using a normal pencil when you can use a super cool mechanical pencil that never needs to be sharpened? You do the math. Gel pens….well, some people love them, some people hate them—I happen to adore them.

7. Rainy afternoons on the couch, in my pajamas, watching a BBC flick with my Momma

Can you spell “bliss”?!

8. Long, deep, and overall awesome conversations with great thinkers (a.k.a. chats with my peeps)

There’s nothing better than an enriching conversation that leaves you revived and on fire for life. Without these, I wouldn’t even have a blog!

9. Stripes

I love wearing stripes. They’re so funky and awesome.

10. Eccentricities (Live long, and prosper!)

I love finding out weird things about people (maybe because I know that I have so many oddities).

I could go on and on, but I have to limit my list to 10. What are some of your simple pleasures?

First off, I LOVE the new look! Second, you have a great list. I now need coffee and a rainy afternoon for BBC movies!

Love your list.

I'm a Nancy Drew game addict. I've played and beat them all. I have download codes for a few of them. If you want them let me know so you can have a free download. :)


P.S. Don't look at my blog yet. It's new and I'm insecure. HAHAHA

VERY fun. I'm a sucker for coffee mugs too. And I would love stripes too if they looked like that in my mirror! ;-)

Simple pleasures? Watching my kids do their thing. The BEST!

I love the list Abs!! I borrowed a Nancy Drew game a few years back from a friend and enjoyed it... but it was hard! Ok, I was like in 5th grade so I guess I have a good excuse. :) I also love pretty much everything else on your list. Someday we will have to watch some good BBC Jane Austen movies together!

hahaha "1. Smiling!" that one would probably be first on my list too.

I love music, Starbucks, dancing around with my girls, singing, reading biographies....those are a few things I really enjoy.

Christina said...

Abigail, You are so YOU!! Ha ha. I had no idea you guys owned so many BBC dvds. I'm going to have to borrow some...I just watched the Cranford series from Netflix while I've been sick - loved it! (Unfortunately I'm the only one in my house who appreciates such nostalgic silliness). Another great post!

Haha, I especially loved the last one. Although we don't watch them much anymore, we own 14 seasons of Star Trek (all of TNG and DS9) and several movies. As with everything, Dad created his own version of the vulcan slogan: "Pizza and long life, live long and perspire."
