Ten AWESOME Things

1. Reading all of my blog friends Ten on the Tenth posts.

2.  My beautiful kitchen after a thorough cleaning by yours truly:
3.  When the heat wave finally breaks and it is cool enough outside to open the windows and enjoy the summer breeze.

4.  Getting happy mail from a blog friend:
Thanks Melissa!

5.  The summer symphony of cicadas and crickets. Really love that sound!

6.  The happy rush when the receipt from Kohls says you saved $248.96 and the amount you spent is LESS than the amount you saved!
Gotta love those 30% off coupons!

7.  Getting a phone call from my favorite sister. She always makes me laugh.

8.  The anticipation of being able to play with all these lovely new acrylic paints - and knowing that they were purchased on sale for a mere 3/$1.00 at AC Moore!

9.  Celebrating twenty-six years of marriage with the man I love:

10. Knowing that as of next Monday that man rejoins the ranks of the gainfully employed! (But that is a story for another post...)

I'm most jealous of all those paints! They are perfect for face painting, but I never find them that cheap.

Also? Your kitchen is amazing!
