Little Things Thursday

I'm a huge fan of thinking positively and trying to see the "happy" in everything I do. Life is just more fun that way!! So today when reading a post by one of my favorite bloggers Breathe Deeply and Smile I just knew that I needed to join in on her "Little Things Thursday" fun :)

So here you are my "little things"

My niece and her love of books!! (Is she not the most darling thing ever?)

Also, her love of yoga, makes me pretty happy :)

Stridebox!! Need I say more?? Seriously, it is like freaking Christmas each month when this amazing box of goodies arrives! This month's was especially exciting because I may or may not have a slight obsession with water bottles...and this one is darling! 

Summer vacation and healthy lunches at home

This photo of my mom and I crossing the finish line of our very first race together. People are always telling us how much we look it came as no surprise that we would look exactly alike when crossing the finish line :)

Cutting out lamination...this is a teacher's favorite thing to do. Promise.

More school projects! I love summer vacation and having the extra time to add those cute little touches to my classroom. Also, I discovered Sprite sugar, no calories? This doesn't even count as cheating on my "no soda" rule right?

Brady Band sale!! I may or may not have ordered this one...and maybe a few others ;)

This weather....seriously! The heat had really been putting a damper on my running and this week was exactly what I needed to recharge and regroup for the 90 degree weather next week :)

This yoga video...usually I get a little bored during a yoga workout (especially a DVD) but this kept me interested and was challenging, but not too difficult for a beginner like me.

Negative Splits...these always make me ridiculously happy :) 

What little things made you smile this week?


  1. This weather!!!!!! Seriously it's RAINING! We haven't seen rain in forever so the rain and cooler temps are awesome...even though my kids are climbing the walls. I'm planning my long run for tomorrow instead of Saturday because of these temps!!

    1. I love a rainy's amazing how much the temperature can affect how we feel about a run (and our pace!) I'm going on my long run tomorrow as well...enjoy!

  2. I love so many things about this! It's nice to step back and take a look at the little things sometimes! Love the photo of you and your mom crossing the finish line together...what a special memory!! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping it's not the last finish line photo we will have together. I'm already working on getting her signed up for another :)

  3. Appreciating little things is what life is all about. I was in a really bad funk over the past couple of weeks, but I finally snapped out of it last week and one thing I am really working on is appreciating the little things. We take those for granted a LOT so I love the idea that you're writing a post about it.

    So funny that you have an obsession with water bottles... I do too!!! I got the CUTUEST Mason jar shaped one for three bucks the other day!

  4. Thanks SO much for linking up with me! I'm glad you like my blog too! That's such an awesome finish photo and WOOHOOO for negative splits-you go girl!
