Simple Things A to Z.

Happy Thursday! I am doing a simple post today. As we all know, sometimes life can get a little complicated and it truly is nice to slow down a bit and appreciate the simpler things in life. I got this idea from the lovely Alex – go visit her awesome blog! So this is my A to Z list of all of the little things in my life that make me happy.
A-Almond milk. I obsessed with this milk so much that I no longer put the real stuff in my cereal. My favorite kind of course is the Silk chocolate almond milk in the little adorable juice boxes.
B-Being barefoot. Call me a hippie if you want. I would never wear shoes if it was acceptable. I love driving barefoot and must have shoes off at all times while I’m in the house. Shoes in the house should be banned and considered against the law.
C-Chocolate almonds. My job sells these in the bookstore and I am addicted.
D-Dancing. I love dancing because it makes me feel free, it’s non competitive and just allows you to let your hair down and be loose. I love teaching Danceaton and gettin down with these awesome people.
E-Easy breezy mornings. I am a morning person and I love the easy breezy peacefulness of mornings. There is something about a quiet morning especially outdoors that is just pure serenity.
Sunrise along one of my “quiet time” moments
F-Fartleks. I think I actually just like saying the word, but it’s a technique of including speedwork in your run and I love the little bursts of speed.
G-Going on vacation. Having a drink with an umbrella in it. Who doesn’t love that?
H-Having friends over for brunch. Just gives me excuse to cook a bunch of yummy stuff and motivates me to clean my apartment from top to bottom.
My last brunch…served up a bunch of yummy eats to some hungry runners!
I-iMac. I am in love with my computer. It’s user friendly and can do just about anything other than cook me dinner…I think I am officially becoming a MAC girl rather than a Windows girl.
J-Jazz music outdoors. Nothing beats a beautiful evening outside with some soothing relaxing music. I love me some outdoor music in the summertime with this fella.
K- Kicking back and doing nothing. There really is something wonderful about doing absolutely nothing. Just feet up, relaxed, empty space.
L-Letting your hair down. There’s no problem that a flat iron can’t fix.
M-Magazines. US Weekly, Runners World, I love them all. Give me a good magazine and I will go to town with it. Especially fun for reading right by the pool.
N-Nice people. Nice people make me smile. I like to surround myself around them.
O-Oatmeal. I love oats, could have them every morning.
P-Popsicles. My favorite thing in summer. Especially the ones with fresh fruit. My favorite flavor is strawberry.
Q-Quiet time to myself. As much as I love people…I’ve also gotta have me some quiet “me” moments of reflection.
R-Running. We all knew I would put this one in there.
S-Smiling. A smile really is the best accessory.
T-To do lists…especially this one
Check, check and double check.
U-Under armor. They have the best running tights a girl could wear.
X-Xtra cheese? Yeah, I like that.
Y-Yoga. My favorite pose…the crow, fo sho.
Z-Zebras? I really couldn’t think of anything that goes with Z. Zebras are cool. Actually I do like zebra print.
What are some simple things in your life that you enjoy? Any fun plans for the upcoming weekend?

  1. I love almond milk, so much more than soy milk. I *really* love your to-do list. I need to print that out and post it by my desk. 🙂 I am so jealous of your crow aptitude. I can maybe hold it for two seconds and then I fall over. I guess that’s why they call it “practicing” yoga.

    1. I wish I could abide by that to do list and that list only everyday! haha…yeah that crow is a tricky one but I always feel successful if I can hold it for at least a few seconds!

  2. I love the dancing, being barefoot and early morning time. Those would get me through just about anything—well, running, too! Great list!
