Simple Things A to Z

As I’ve been blog surfing recently in my time off from work, I stumbled upon several of my favorite blogs, including Tina’s, Janetha’s, and Paige’s, that we’re doing a “Simple Things” survey. It’s always good to stop and appreciate the smaller things, so I thought this would be a good weekend post for the sister and I.

A Appreciation
The smallest expression of appreciation from another person can mean so much, right? Feeling appreciated can make a bad day good again.

B Baby giggles
I have been babysitting one of my best friends’ son once a week this summer. He is just a little too adorable.
(Ashley) A baby giggle is why I am in love with having a profession in Early Childhood Education.

C Coffee
I am typing this before going to the store on a morning that I am out of coffee…so I REALLY appreciate it today! Haha
(Ashley) I don’t like Coffee very much so my “C” will be carefree because sometimes you just have to be!

D Dog noses
Wet, yes, but adorable.
(Ashley) Makes me think of my “niece dog”-Libby

E Eating
We all have to do it… does any one get paranoid about it like I do and not eat past 7pm?

F Friday evenings
There is nothing quite like having two days off freedom ahead of you!

G Grilled cheese
…but only if it’s made correctly. 🙂

H Happiness
What we feel when we run and after a good run.

I Iced coffee
Can you tell I’m really missing it this morning?

J Jimmy Johns
I don’t know why, but a beach club on whole wheat bread makes me a little more happy than it should.

K Karate
(Ashley) I have a very weird ambition to try to learn karate.

L Listening
Sometimes listening is all you really can do in a situation when you don’t know what else to do.

M MapmyRUN
(Ashley) This is a feature I add to my runs that I almost cannot live without.

N Not having to set an alarm
No explanation needed here.

O One
(Ashley) Today is my godsons 1st birthday.

P Photography
(Ashley) I’ve been getting back into my love for it lately.

Q “Quiet” running
Some people refuse to run without music…I find it kind of awesome.

R Running
This is a given word for us at the moment.

S St. Jude
Amy is running in a huge St. Jude Children’s Hospital event next week. I don’t feel confident enough in my running yet, but I’ll still tag along beside her as a volunteer!

T Text messages
I don’t know about you, but when I’m at work and check my phone to see a text waiting for me, I get excited. 🙂

U Update
I really hope you are all liking this update!

V Variation
Who wants to get bored with the same old thing?

W Water
I pretty much love sitting outside by the water on a nice summer night.

X – HELP??

Y Yes!
(Ashley) Totally the word that was running through my head over and over today when I realized I had run for the longest I have ever run at 1 time. It was Fantastic!

Z PiZza
Yeah…I cheated. But is there anything better than a good pizza?

Pick a letter…what simple thing comes to mind?
