Little Pick-Me-Ups

It’s Simple Really.

I want to be happy all the time, like in the movies.

When I start to feel like I’m not happy I inject some happy into my life.

Here are some of the things I do that help me feel happy all the time.

  • Buy Fresh Flowers
  • Eat Fresh Fruit (Cantaloupe, Berries, Watermelon)
  • Drink Infused Water (Cucumber or Coconut)
  • Dark Chocolate (any chocolate will work)
  • Drink Tea
  • Focus on Nothing but Sitting Straight for 10 Minutes (it calms me down, helps with my posture and makes me feel refreshed)
  • Get Fresh Air and Sunlight
  • Herbal Teas
  • Indulge in “Better Option” Sweets (Chocolate Covered Strawberries)
  • Listen to My Favorite Music
  • Stretch
  • Tell Someone I Love Them
  • Use Glitter
  • Wash My Face
  • Watch movies/pictures of puppies and kittens
  • Wine (specifically a glass of Cabernet)

Here are some reminders that help me stay on top of my game:

  • Avoid Salt
  • Eat Healthy (no sugar, no caffeine)
  • Exercise
  • Let Others Talk (you don’t always need to be saying something)
  • Stay Hydrated
  • Take My Vitamin

What are some of your favorite things to do for a little pick me up?

Hi, I’m so excited your here! My name is Amanda. Welcome to my blog Dishes and Denim! Writing is my outlet. It grounds me. So, I decided to start a blog where I can share my life with you! I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My son Bradley was born April 1st, 2018. He is my entire world. Simple is my specialty. I don’t have a lot of extra time and the time I do have I want to spend with my family. I love cooking, cleaning, photography, writing, sewing and running. Maintaining an organized and clutter-free home is a priority. I have a mild obsession with buying photography props, notebooks, coffee mugs, and pens. If there was an award for overanalyzing – I would win every year. I’m a hopeless romantic. My favorite color is turquoise. My perfect day includes waking up to a clean house and having a Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte and fresh fruit waiting for me…followed by a long hot shower then bumming around town in comfy jeans and a perfectly fitting white tee and my denim jacket (taking pictures and visiting antique shops). For dinner, I would request a cheeseburger (red onions, pickle, and ketchup) with a side salad (Balsamic, no tomatoes) Then end the day relaxing on my patio with twinkle lights, a glass of Entwine Cabernet and my family (bonus points for a campfire and S’mores). If you want to know more about me you can either invite me out for a glass of red wine or check out some of my blog posts!
