The Little Bytes II
November 28, 2016

Over the years, I express my gratitude to those who play a key part of my life. I’m always going to be thankful for the love and support from my boyfriend, family, and friends. This year, I decided to change things up and reflect on some of the little things that brighten my days. 

  • Finding a wide parking space (+1 if it’s next to a really nice car)
  • Waiting in short lines
  • Fri-YAY calligraphies 🎉
  • Boyfriend occasionally buying flowers 🌼
  • Earning bonus stars at Starbucks 🌟🌟🌟
  • Taking pictures that come out clean and properly focused  📷
  • Winning player vs player battles on Skyforge ⚔
  • Driving with little to no traffic on the freeway
  • Seeing my friends achieving their milestones 💯
  • “Free shipping on all orders” + sales
  • Command lines working in Terminal on my first attempt
  • Satisfying my random cravings 🍣
  • Buying my boyfriend Lego Star Wars
  • Boyfriend carrying the backpack at Disneyland 🎒
  • Regular Starbucks run ☕
  • Actually making healthier food choices
  • Free food samples 🍙
  • Finding that perfect Pusheen (cat) gif that fits my mood 🐈
  • Boyfriend and I having the same thoughts about a plan
  • Seeing Christmas decorations 🎄

What are some of the little things that you enjoy?

    OMG Nancy, what is this!

    “Free shipping on all orders” + sales

    That is naughty. I hope you have not been spending all your money on sales. Though I have to admit, I spent a bit of money too. Wisely though… I know there were Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales recently but I probably deleted about 90% of the emails I got. Couldn’t resist buying a few things. And I got free shipping on a few things, but they were things I had to buy for Christmas presents for family, haha. Free shipping though… free shipping is good. 😉

    I love when Nick carries my bag. 😛 It depends, though, I generally don’t have a problem carrying my bag unless it is heavy. But men should carry a bag every now and then too. Nick always asks me to carry his sunglasses in my bag. One day I want to be able to ask him to carry my things. 😆 It’s a bit of a funny discussion to have – men carrying bags.

    I laugh at the fact that you you are actually making healthier food choices but you get free food samples… just sounds like two things I would add to a list like this, too. 😄 Now I feel bad for eating chocolate today. But no one can really say no to free food, sooooo…

      I have some budget left for shopping ;). I was thinking about less red meat and more veggies being a healthy choice XD! I guess avoiding free samples will +1 my healthy eating game but I can’t resist~

    I love this post, Nancy! You’re right that there are little things that just make our days brighter. I’m taking the time to think about what made my day better than usual. Things like when my bus gets me home earlier, or when a kid comes up to me and say or do something funny, or when a parent doesn’t blow up at me because things went missing because of previous staff not being organised . . . things like that are somethings that make me happy and thankful.

    I’m glad you have all those little things that make you happy. Btw, I want to see some of your calligraphies! I hope you’ll share them in a future post ^_^ It’s also great that your boyfriend does things for you and I love it that you guys are on sync with things!

    Woot for all the little splurging. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that as long as you can afford them and you don’t go overboard 😀 Life’s short, so enjoy what you can!

    Aww, this is such a wonderful list. It makes me smile.

    Ahhh. The free shipping and sales during the last week have been crazy. It’s hard to resist when some of your favourite stores have amazing deals. Oops. 😛

    d’aww that’s so sweet of your boyfriend to buy you flowers. mine never does that, tsk … lol jk because i wouldn’t want him to give me flowers either. i can’t eat or sleep with flowers so what for, right HAHAHA

    whadayya mean by bonus stars!? lol are you referring to the points you collect in your starbucks member card every time you purchase a beverage? because if that’s not it then ….i never heard of bonus stars???

    you slay at skyforge, i slay at division 😉

    I like to focus on the little things 😀 We often look over them, but they add up and can really make you happier! That’s so sweet of your boyfriend to buy you flowers once in a while. I also love finding wide parking spaces (especially if they’re close to where I need to be), and winning in PvP games feels soooo good. They make up for the equal amounts of frustration, haha. Non-traffic days and satisfying cravings are also the best!

    A few little things I like are the end of work days when a lot of people have gone home, and I get about an hour of quiet for myself. I like when packages come in, putting on a completed cosplay for the first time, and holding a hot cup of tea in my hands 🙂

    Free shipping for the win! And no-traffic days too <3

    What a positive, cute little list! Thank you for sharing Nancy!

    I love taking photos that come out clean and focused and just instagram worthy – ha! 😛 I always get excited loading my photos into my laptop and praising myself for the great shots 😉

    Haha, sales and free shipping. Oh the little things xD I went a little crazy this year with Black Friday and Cyber Monday I’m not going to lie but I did save up all year after being broke last Black Friday and not getting much 😛 So I learnt my lesson there 😛

    Yay for the little things. I’m loving the Christmas decorations in stores right now. It makes the cold weather much more tolerable.

    I’m also totally loving the fall foliage lately. Seeing the different color leaves just warms my heart. I’m enjoying it before they all disappear for winter.
