This morning I woke up dreading the rest of the week, so I have decided to think happy thoughts today! This brings me to the list of things I am loving right now! As always, each item will cost less than $5. Holla!
1) Iced Tea
I cannot get enough of plain iced tea. I have always been a hot tea addict, but have never embraced its iced counterpart. This is no longer the case! I find myself yearning for an icy glass. I am going to brew a pitcher this morning. It is a great way to stay hydrated and vary up my endless water-drinking!
Seriously, I have an apple addiction. I am up to at least 3-4 apples a day. I cannot get enough! They just taste so yummy! I plan to convince Chase to go apple picking with me this weekend because I need a new supply. This batch is going to be vanquished by Friday.
3) Coconut Flakes
Have you ever tried these? They are simply delightful! I like to snack on them on their own or mixed with some almonds in a nice, simple trail mix. Delish! I got these at Whole Foods for only about $3.
4) Mouse Traps
Oh how I wish I were kidding. I have found terrifying little pellets left by these rodent perpetrators. We live in a first floor apartment, and we have very warm heating vents which mice love and adore. They always visit when Chase is gone and the first encounter I had was in January (Chase was away on active duty). As much as I wish I could live in harmony with Cinderella’s tiny helpers, I attract the Paris Hilton of mice. The only thing they eat and destroy are fine chocolates, roasted pistachios, and cashmere scarfs. No joke. They turn up their little noses at the airline peanut packets I have stored in the snack drawer. They don’t look twice at the mountains of Target scarfs I have and they go straight for the luxury items. This. Means. War. Chase is about to leave for another active duty stint, but working together we are vanquishing the enemy.
I am also pleased to report that you can purchase rodent eliminating devices for under $5. Phew!
I keep trying to imagine pudgy little GusGus from Cinderella living in my walls and it is helping me calm down. However, Walt Disney failed to note the lovely little presents mice tend to leave and the items they destroy!
Speaking of Walt, what is your favorite Disney movie? You can pick old school or Pixar.
I have a three-way-tie between Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty (the plump little fairies KILL me! Who wouldn’t want to be BFFs with Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather?)
