Sometimes it's the *really* simple things...

There were a few things that I found particular joy in this week. The first was this floor cleaner. It sounds so simple, but my house has lots of laminate, and since we moved in last October, I have had one heck of a time keeping it looking clean. I don't like it when it looks like there's some icky residue - which is what I was getting with the other floor cleaners that I have tried. So, I saw this in the super cool cleaning section at Home Depot, and I decided to try it. I seriously <3 it! It did not leave any residue, it cleaned really well, AND it took me like half the time to "mop" my floor! Yay! :-)

The other thing that I did this week that was super fun (and yummy!) was make these Oreo Kisses from Bakerella's website. I do not bake or cook, but these were surprisingly fun and easy to make. Although they were most definitely not as pretty as Bakerella's, I loved making them, and my hubby and little boy loved eating them! I missed the note about how big they were supposed to be, though. It said that they should turn out to be 1.5" tall.... LOL, mine were like 3" - oh well, they were yummy anyway.

This little boy loves to color. He colors and draws almost every day, and almost every day I am the lucky recipient of one of his pieces of art. Today while he was working (I say this because it's serious business when he's coloring!) I took a few photos of him. I can't believe how grown up he is. He tells me the funniest stories every day. He makes me happy. Oh, how I love this kid!

Welcome 2010...

I am a terrible blogger. Partly because I don't feel like I have time, and partly because I often don't know what to blog about. Well, there was a wonderful post on one of my favorite photography message boards, Two Peas in a Bucket, that has inspired me to blog more often. The post was by a wonderful woman who was going to post something on her blog each day that made her happy. Simple. :-) Well, I know that I won't be able to keep up with a blog post every day, but I will be making one each week throughout 2010!

So, here is my first post for the new year. Something that makes me happy; something that I'm grateful for each day. My wonderful husband and my sweet little boy; they make me happy. I hope that I will remember this every day this year, and be sure to spend plenty of time with them, rather than worrying about other things.

This photo was not taken by me - it was taken by an amazing friend from the Two Peas in a Bucket message board. Her name is Shantel, and she did such a great job with our photos. Thank you again so, so much Shantel!
