Things That Make Me Say Yeay

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies. Is there anything better than the smell of fresh baked cookies floating around your house? Nope.

My favorite little guy having a blast with the hose.

BBQing and enjoying a perfect summer evening sunset.

A sweet unexpected thank you note from an amazing reader. Made my day.

A much needed girls night out! SO much fun. Non stop laughing and chit chatting reminded me how important a little girl time is.

Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies...the best!! I could eat them till I am sick. The next day though? I can eat one but they are not such a big temptation. A girls got to have her girlfriend!! It is truly something to be thankful for.

That photo of the choc chip cookies does them SO much justice. They look d.i.v.i.n.e - your husband really IS lucky. I LOVED that story about the girls night out as well. I'm a big girls girl and must have a catch up with my nearest and dearest regularly to stay grounded and get my source of laughs and love. The parrot reminds me of an experience my Aunties and I had - we were laughing to the point of tears!

Aw, I love that people still send handwritten notes. I love reminders that there are really great and thoughtful people in the world. :)

Danielle said...

Mhmm, that sushi looks so good right now! I may just have to get me some tonight. Handwritten letters are the best, but even better when they are unexpected! :)

Love fresh baked choc chip cookies but I haven't had any in ahwile because of my diet. Getting "good" mail is one of the best things ever!! You're so right about girls night. I have one coming up in a couple of weeks.

Swirls of Happy said...

YAY too all those things!! Isn't just spending time with family and eating treats the best ever!!! Your little man is a doll :)

Would that life were all a series of such events as portrayed in these pictures. ;)

colleen said...

Andrea@Fancy That! said...

It all looks wonderful. Are those chocolate chip cookies whole wheat? They look like it from the texture.

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Andrea- Yes they are! Good eye :)

sherri lynn said...

There is nothing better than freshly baked cookies! If I had my ideal house, it would include fresh flowers and fresh cookies every day!

I love an unexpected piece of mail, nothing is better!! And since we've been married I realize how important girls time is! I definitely need it every once and a while and treasure when I get it!

Cat said...

All things that make me go yeay!!! too! :) Nights out with the girls are the best ... I never realize how much I miss them until we have a girls night and every goes "man, we should do this more often!"

Brynn {chartreuse and a twist} said...

these are such lovely photos!!! mmm...you are making me want cookies! and that sunset is such a perfect, gorgeous california sunset...before moving to washington from california i thought that all sunsets looked like that...i was wrong! the sunsets here are different ...gorgeous also, but they are pinks & purples rather than the oranges and reds :) have a great day, lady! xoxoxo brynn

katie said...

Girl's night is a must. I do it at least twice a month. I encourage my hubby to do the same. We are so refreshed afterwards. Glad you had such a fun night!

Lindsay said...

Aw, I LOVE this post! The picture of your little guy with the hose is SO precious. Not a care in the world. Makes me want to slow down & soak more of those moments in with my little ones. Gorgeous sunset & a GNO is definitely a must every once in a while.

Veronica said...

Anne said...

We must've been on the same wavelength Lindsay. I made choc chip cookies on Tuesday. All gone now. I'm too tempted by the smell and eat way too many.

Glad you had fun on your girl's night out. The food looks fantastic!

those are all wonderful things. nothing like baking cookies or even bread in your house, your little man is adorable and unexpected notes especially handwritten are so rare these days, definitely something worth keeping

Wendy said...

Those cookies make me say "yum" and "Bah" because I'm on a diet. Love the sunset and your little guy playing with the hose. Simple things are the very best.

katie said...

ohh man those cookies look so delish!!!

shannon*bear said...

Oh snap, you CAN'T beat fresh baked cookies!!! Your little one is precious, love that photo! And who can beat a fun sushi dinner and a talking parrot? We should all be so lucky ;-)

Jackie said...

I've had sushi all week, can never get tired of them. Those little things are just too good to pass up. Aww...the tot loves to play with the water hose but never likes to get wet. Too cute!!

Miss Lindsay said...

My girlfriends at work and I went out for a sushi lunch on Thursday. So yummy!! I only wish we ran into a talking parrot, haha.

Rachael said...

Oooh, yum, your cookies look amazing. That parrot sounds so funny! My childhood friend had a parrot that would repeat her and her sister's fights when their mom got home. And, it'd call the dog over and then chastise him. ("Here Jake! Come here! Bad DOG. BAD dog!")

Things that make me say yeay: Your blog. Annnd, your blog.

Mary Lane said...

Those cookies look delish and your son is adorable! I don't know what I would do if a bird mocked my laugh... I can see myself either getting all self-conscious about it or laughing hysterically!
