  • my blizzard! (preface: every year i hope for a blizzard. Every. Single. Year. and mama nature has failed me in recent years, but this winter she has blessed us with three humongous snow storms. i love it!)
  • snow days. i am thoroughly caught up on movies, filing taxes, sleeping and somewhat working out.
  • big screen HD TVs. i am spoiled, small TVs no longer fit in my life. i like seeing sports in hi-def. it is Fab.
  • text messages and phone calls. yes, i like feeling important
  • being able to work from home if necessary. and it was necessary. it’s kinda nice to not have to climb out of bed to work!
  • silicon spray. spray on shovel before going outside for easy snow removal. prevents snow from sticking to the shovel. thank you, nerdy daddy.
  • turbotax. it answers all your questions and holds your hand along the way. yes, for the first time ever, i filed my own taxes.
  • familiar faces at the grocery store. i like knowing the check-out clerks.
  • homemade food. cooking my own food. deliciousness
  • lotion. especially after being in the cold snow
  • friends who love to live life to the fullest

  • AWESOME travel companions. flo and i get along, we know when to step back, what to eat, when to be spontaneous and when to drop cash. it works so well.
  • leaving work before 6pm. current projects are exhausting and frustrating. but its nice when sometimes i can just go home at a normal time and relax.
  • getting home before 8pm. sometimes its nice when i don’t have after-work plans. i can cook my own dinner and prep a homemade lunch.
  • homemade food. the satisfaction of making my own food. eating deliciousness that i created.
  • vacations. forgetting the cares of the world for a few days and just having fun.
  • restaurant weeks. while dc’s or bmore’s are only okay, new york’s is a bangin opportunity
  • knowing locals when i travel. i hate being a tourist and love when people can show me how to live as normal people do in the city.
  • driving to ny. slightly inconvenient in having to stay awake. very convenient in being able to leave whenever we want and get there faster.
  • people not wanting dessert at asia de cuba. i got a coconut cake packed up for my dad instead and he claimed it to be the best coconut cake he’s ever had. and he really really loves coconut cake 🙂
  • cancelled games. sometimes my life exhausts me and i need a break so i don’t get too sick.
  • fabulous coworkers.
  • local markets like farmers markets, CSAs, co-ops, etc. i wish i lived next to one so i could buy fresh food every day.
  • snow. i love snow. i love blizzards. it’s super pretty and its nice to sit down and relax without all the craziness sometimes.
  • a chance to hang out with konica again! i’ve seen her twice in the past month including going to dinner, which is more than i’ve seen her in the past 6years.
  • all my fav girls. who are there for me even if guys are assholes and anger me lately.
  • good music for roadtrips. being able to sing to the radio with travel buddies. not caring how off-key i might sound.
  • saving money.
