Simply Pleasures

Name 5 simple pleasures that you like most, then pick 5 people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used .

1. Sleeping in...My hubby will let me sleep in at least 2 Saturdays a month. It's the most wonderful way to start the weekend, especially is I stay up late the night before to watch tv or to surf. I remember sleeping in till 1pm when I was a teenager, but now I'm lucky to sleep past 10. Since I'm so old (at 25), if I sleep in too long, I am tired and I have back and neck pains all day...crazy, I know!

2. Having cash in my purse...I hardly ever have cash since I pay for everything with my bank card. When I have cash, I just feel special. Heehee!!! And I save it for a very special occasion.

3. Babysitters...I have quite a few willing family members who are able to watch me son. Whenever my hubby and I have the time and the money to go out, we usually always have someone to watch the boy. We are so blessed in that way!

4. Not having to clean the cat box...when I go into the bathroom and see that my hubby cleaned out the cat box (without being asked), I'm am just thrilled! I don't mind doing the chore myself, but it's great to not have to clean it. It's just a nice surprise!

5. No hair tangles...with my hair being long, it tangles very easily. Some days after my shower it takes a good 15 minutes to comb out my hair. I've used many different products to help, but I just have long, frizzy hair. Now if I get out of the shower and it only takes 2 minutes to brush out my hair, I'm a happy woman!!!

I hope some of those haven't been used before by other bloggers (and I have soooo many more I could include)...and I'm not going to tag anyone this time! Sorry, I know you're all disappointed, but feel free to steal it like I did (from Jootastic...thanks!).

Btw, today is my sister-in-laws birthday! Do me a favor and go to her blog and wish her a happy birthday!!!

Ooh, those are ALL nice!

I have the world's straightest hair, though, so I'll give you some of my easy combing, if you give me some of your texture. Deal?

Hope tomorrow's a sleep in day for you!

I probably would have picked four of your answers for myself (don't have kids yet, so no babysitter issues for me!), but here are a few others that come to mind:

1. Reading a really good book.
2. Love/snuggles from one of my kitties when I'm least expecting it.
3. Seeing something new pop up in the garden during spring and summer. I'm new to this whole gardening thing, and I get a thrill everytime something I planted actually grows!
4. Personal snail mail. I'm always perked up when I get a card or letter from family or friends.
5. Comfortable shoes that also look good. When I can find a pair of shoes like that, I'm a happy girl!

Oh, and Michelle sent me!
