A Happy spot...

I'm a simple person, remember? I live out in the sticks.
I don't get out much. The nearest Starbuck's is 45 minutes away.
Target is also 45 minutes away.

So it's a treat when we get to go!
Today we're under 17 inches of snow. Huge drifts all around. We're stuck.
But last week we had a gorgeous day that I got to sneak off to Target.
And it made me so happy!

I ran into Pioneer Woman there.


I had an awesome shopping partner, who was very content with a bag of popcorn and a slushy.


I'm really liking zebra lately. I want a zebra chair for my home. Is that weird?
Don't answer that. Maybe I'll just get this zebra blanket and throw it over a chair.


Happy Flowers. And so much color! I love color so much.




We finished with lunch at Pei Wei. DanDan chicken = happy tummy.


I'm easily pleased.
What's your simple happy little pleasure?

Hot chocolate with breakfast. It totally makes the day :)

Smelling the bread that is baking as I type this. Mmmmm... THAT makes me very happy.

Well, Target is my second home, so if I lived 45 minutes from one, I would save hundreds of dollars a month! Our happy place is the mall (I love going to Anthropologie and Pottery Barn!)and Barnes and Noble Bookstore! We take an excursion there atleast twice a month. Even if I don't buy anything, I walk away feeling inspired!

I looked at that same zebra blanket at target last night while i was wandering around (it was on clearance)! I almost got it but we have so many throw blankets i decided it wasn't a justified purchase :)

That flower pillow would make me happy. :)

A hot cup of black tea and the sun shining: perfection.

Do I need to clarify, alone? Because I'm here alone in silence and that might be a key factor of this simple pleasure.

I have all of those books! Target is so happy. Especially when you're alone! Which is never. Ever.

I honestly can't think of what makes me happy right now because all I can think of is that I need that Pei Wei stuff in that picture. That. Looks. Yummy.

Oh... and Target definitely makes me happy!

In Canada we have a coffee shop by the name of Second Cup. They have the most delicious chai tea.

Coffee & Bookstores.

we must be a like because I would say Target & Starbucks anyday would make my day! I have been begging my husband to take me to both and I don't care how much snow is on the ground!! :)

It really depends on my mood and the weather. If it is nice out and sunny - I head to the local college and walk around the lake with my iPod so I don't have to have conversation with anyone. It's just me, nature, and music. The perfect trifecta! However, I do love a good bookstore and a great cup of coffee. We have a fantastic used bookstore here in SC that I've just discovered and I enjoy perusing the shelves for the perfect treasure. However, my all time favorite bookstore is the Tattered Cover in Denver, CO. It is divine!!

LOVE Target!

My simple happy little pleasure is a Saturday afternoon of antique "browsing" - I rarely buy anything at all... but, I love to look at vintage stuff & occasionally find a cookbook or decorating book to add to my bookshelf. :)

Junkin'. I love to go junkin'. Alone. Or with a friend. But, no kids.

You are so in my head! I am a huge fan of zebra print right now!! As a matter of fact, I used your duck tape idea and bought zebra duck tape!! I'll show it on my blog soon. Might I add the very night I finished that little project my son spilled my glass of wine right on top of it....oh well.

Michelle said...

I'm easy to please. Cup of coffee and the newspaper :)

Helen said...

I don't think the zebra thing is odd, but then, I'm still looking for leopard print panties. The ones I use now are getting worn out.
Simple pleasures? Honey on my hot buttered waffles!

Oh Beki, you made me remember how wonderful Target is. I like to forget about these things. Only 2 1/2 more years before I get to step foot in one again....sigh.....
Right now my simple happy little pleasure is the 30 minutes of quiet I have when both boys are sleeping...It's heavenly I tell you.
