I would like to preface this post with the fact that I am more than grateful for my wonderful friends and family, for boyfriend B and his wonderful family who has welcomed me in more than I could have ever hoped for, for my Elementary Ed friends, who I could not make it through this semester without, and my equally great roommate who puts up with me on a daily basis. Thanks J.
That being said, there are some little inventions/items that make my life just that much better that I would like the time to express my gratitude for on this fine morning.
1. The annoying beeper that goes off when my lights are still on, and I'm leaving the car. Initially annoying, realistically amazing. Oh, the number of times this has saved my battery.
2. Slippers. There is nothing better than putting my freezing cold Wisconsin feet in the fluffiest slippers I could find.
3. The Starbucks stopper. I kick myself each time I use one because I didn't come up with the idea first. Let's be real. Walking up Bascom Hill with a Starbucks drink in tow is not pleasant without one of the these stoppers. Thanks for saving my hands and clothes from being covered in Chai tea whoever you are.
While we're on this topic if you're ever looking to buy me a Starbucks drink, this is my preference: in fall/winter-tall non-fat, no foam Chai. in spring/summer-tall non-fat easy-ice Chai. Wouldn't it be easier to surprise someone with a Starbucks drink if we all knew what each other liked?! I can't tell you how many times a surprise has been ruined by having to text or call a friend to see what they want. Feel free to let me know your drink of choice so I can start compiling a list. And I'm being very serious.
What little things are you finding yourself grateful for this month?
