Five Things

In honor of one of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, I've decided to start doing a weekly Five Things post where I share with you the things that are making me happy each week.

First things first, these shoes from Payless. Their Bogo (buy one, get one 1/2 price) sale is going on right now and there are some great deals. I wasn't aware that this included already marked-down shoes, but it does :). These little pumps were on sale for $9 and so were another pair of brown suede flats, making my purchase of two cute pairs of shoes a whopping $14.
Many trips to Starbucks over the last few weeks have deepened my appreciation for a good vanilla latte.
The new holiday baubles stamps get me all warm and fuzzy inside. Aren't they darling? Plus, the postal lady informed me that stamps will be going up again in January so better to stock up now on these forever stamps to use next Christmas, too.
Target's Dollar Section. Cookie bags, wrapping paper (surprisingly 40 sq. feet per roll!) and glittery ornaments found their way into my shopping cart, and I wasn't even mad.
 My husband, the weatherman.

What's made you smile this week? :)
