It's the Simple Things.

People who know me may think I'm high-maintenance, but looks can be deceiving.

I get pleasure out of the simplest things, like ...

when my chips and salsa even out,

the giggly feeling I get when my body first settles in the bed at night,

just plain ol' sittin' outside,

cereal and milk (oreos and milk, too),

sipping my first cup of coffee in the morning, 

the warmness of the clothes when they first come out of the dryer,

getting into a warm vehicle after being in a cold restaurant or church,

putting pajamas on,  

the smell of Vick's Vaporub,

cuddling with my children right before they go to bed,

the circular crust of a chicken pot pie, 

carving our initials into the top of a chicken pot pie because that's what my mom used to do,

my DVR,

a nice, hot bath,

days off when I wear no make-up or even better stay in my pajamas all day

Now, make no mistake ... I like high heels, make-up, fancy restaurants, and spa treatments, too.

Hmmm ... sounds like an identity crisis. But, I'm definitely not high-maintenance. And don't argue with me about it.

I love this post!

You mention chicken pot pie - any recipe to share?

A post like this really makes you feel warm, like we know you and we like you. Maybe I shouldn't speak for everyone, I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't sound all stalkerish.
Boy, this really deteriorated....
And it was such a great post,too.

My personal fav is my first sip of the first cup! All the other sips go downhill from there! :-) Great list!

ahhh yeah, my DVR makes me feel all gooey inside too, but Vicks Vaporub??? :P I love the way plastic smells, fresh from the store like pool toys or plastic shower curtains too. And books. And your blog!

I get that same giggly feeling when I settle in bed at night...perfection.

If you ask me there is nothing wrong with liking these simpler things AND a spa day, too.

awwww, I also add our names to food that I cook, how wonderful! I really like writing messages on the toaster strudels with the icing packets!! Yes, I am crazy!

Us low-maintenance types are simply misunderstood. That's all.

rebel said...

I can relate to a lot of these.

I am SO that way too. Those simple wonderful things in life are amazing - and truth be told no makeup and bare feet are my bliss. But oh how I LOVE to get all dressed up and go some where fancy. It's all good!! :)

Right after work I throw off my heels and strip down to put on sweat pants and a T-Shirt

To my work...I'm High Maintenance...to my family, they wish I would dress up!

I'd just have to add sittin' on the beach with a good book...one of my favs. :)
