simple pleasures

I have been a working hard this week & spending most of my time in the studio.  

But I have made sure to enjoy some of my simple pleasures as well, because after all I work for myself & make the rules!  Here are some of the little things that make me smile...

1. Puggy walks!! Without these I don't think I could get much work done, these little ladies have tons of energy!  The littlest one is getting so big.

2. Reading! I am *in love* with my kindle & use it everyday while I knit up orders. I just finished Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Foer (so so good) & decided this week to settle on a light young adult read - The Hunger Games trilogy. Oh my goodness, it's such a fun interesting read, I have LOVED it so far & recommend it.  I am on book two already, Catching Fire.  (I also just started a Good Reads page, add me if you'd like - my username is: mmperry)

3. Family time & thrifting!  I was oh so lucky to get a visit from my parents this past weekend (I miss them already)!  My mom is the thrifting queen & we spent the whole visit tearing up all my fav local thrift stores, we came away with so many goodies. 

I found my all time favorite John Denver record for a whopping $.70! Annie's song - sigh...

4. Can I add my Iphone as a simple pleasure?! haha. I sadly don't know where I would be without it. My new favorite game is Tiny Wings.  & I have gotten slightly attached to Instagram.  I am such a visual person that I almost prefer it to Twitter, I enjoy getting to share & see snippets of peoples lives through the instagram feed - my username is meghanp if you have an account!

Okay back to work for what's left of this beautiful Friday! Happy weekend! ♥

  2. Hehe! It's ok! I hear you on the walks and the iPhone!
    When I was in CA my iphone just completely turned off, wouldn't charge nothing!! I freaked out! Took me 2 days to find out how to fix it :((

  3. Yay for getting a bit of happy time! Your pugs are so adorable! ; w;

  4. I kept thinking "me too!" during this entire post. The Hunger Games are awesome, Tiny Wings is super addicting, and I LOVE John Denver.

    Off to listen to Annie's Song now. <3 Have a perfect weekend!

  5. Oh man, I love your studio space! so pretty! Ive been reading magical thinking by augusten burroughs (running with scissors) its a *magical* read...

  6. I was trying to justify matching iphones for Billy and I the other week and I may have even mentioned to him that you could not live without yours! :) I think I made a good case for them so we'll see!
