It's The Little Things

Sometimes happiness is cheaper than $4, especially when it's found at Wal-Mart.

 Last night I found myself at Wal-Mart (this happens a lot), and as I was walking past the cosmetics section towards the pharmacy to pick up some generic extra-strength allergy medicine (ragweed season's a-comin'), I spotted this creature peeking out at me from some lipgloss.

Someone had picked him up, carried him along and then after a change of heart, abandoned him! How cruel. I fell in love right away.

His tag says he's a pencil case, but I've decided this little fellar is going to be my new make-up bag. And for only $3.97!

Now, whenever I reach into my purse to touch up my lipstick, I will be greeted by this snaggle-toothed puff of delight, and there's no way I could ever be grumpy again.

So tell me, what little things are cheering you up right now? What's your favourite simple pleasure? Is it a trip to Wal-Mart? Or even better, IKEA? I was there Sunday and it was glorious

I know we're all a little stressed out, so let's get some good vibes going for the weekend, you guys!
