Tuesday's Topics: Ten Reasons to Smile.

Linking up with Lauren @ Life. Love. Lauren for the first time for her {Tuesday Topics}

Presley learning to kiss.  Presley has been giving kisses for a while now, but her little kisses just keep getting sweeter and sweeter!  Now she'll make the "mwah!" sound at the end of a kiss and it just makes me smile.
She's not giving kisses here, but this is another thing she's doing lately.  We ask, "Where is Presley?" and she'll cover her face and then pop out and yell, "BOO!"

Fresh brewed coffee + my favorite coffee-mate creamer.  Yum.  I look forward to the mornings for this reason.  {Best creamer, ever!}

Clif bars.  If they weren't so darn expensive, we would buy these all the time because Tony and I sure got hooked on them after finding them on clearance!  {My current favorite.}

Green things.  It is so gorgeous now that all the rain has really brought everything to life outside!  The view from our window is so vastly different than it was a few weeks/months ago.

Encouragement.  One of my favorite Pinterest boards focuses on encouraging words and some days when things don't seem to be very sunny, I get lost in pinning all kinds of uplifting stuff.

Cartwheel.Target.com - if you frequent Target, check this website out for some awesome coupons!  It is beyond easy and fantastic {especially if you have a smartphone, IT'S TIME TO UPGRADE, AMANDA!}.  I used it for the first time today and saved $1.54 for pretty much doing NOTHING.  So awesome.

Warm towels straight out of the dryer.  I love it!  One of my favorite things to do for Presley is have a fresh, warm towel for her after bath time every now and again.

Crawling into a bed with clean sheets.  We're washing the sheets tonight (and it's the nice set we got from Granny!) and I am so excited to take a shower and crawl into a clean bed!

Chick-fil-A's sweet tea.  Yes!  If only they had $1 drinks like McDonalds... then I would be in some serious trouble!  For now, I'll just settle for our weekly Tuesday night spicy night special!

Flowers from my husband.  I told Tony years ago that I just wasn't much of a flower person and as a result flowers just aren't in the house very much.  But for some reason, that has changed for me and I just think flowers are beautiful and I don't see them as being as frivolous as I once did.  Well, he surprised me with beautiful flowers for our anniversary and when I saw my favorite flower in the bouquet (I love carnations!) I seriously started crying!!!  I love them so much!  {I kinda felt like Kristen Bell when Dax got her the sloth!!!!}

    1. YOU need 'em! And I thought you'd like the sloth reference - haha!

  3. Oh Presley is adorable! So glad you found and are participating in this link up! Oh and I love green too! It is hard for me to come by in the desert but I would love me nothing but trees one day!

    1. Thanks for hosting it, Lauren :)

  4. WHAT a fun set of Tuesday Topics. I totally want in on this fun. Although I may have to wait a week, or I'll see if I can get one out today.

    Presley just keeps getting cuter and cuter!

  5. What a cutie!

    I love coffee, too!

    And clean sheets are the best.

    Visiting from Tuesday Topics!


  6. I'm addicted to the Diet Arnold Palmer's at Chick-Fil-A. I get half diet lemonade, with half unsweet tea. OBSESSED.

    I go more often than you do, because I work part-time in the mall. I try to get as many free refills as possible, though, so the price tag isn't quite as horrible.

    1. Funny you say that, this past week I went and instead of getting the half sweet tea/half unsweet tea I normally get, I got an Arnold Palmer! It was delicious! :) We go once a week for a deal our store has every Tuesday - so obsessed :}

  7. Hi Ali,

    1. Welcome Patty :) Hope you liked what you read!!! I agree about enjoying the company of other Catholic bloggers! Looking forward to perusing your blog :)
