The part of the night where I get to crawl into bed with hubby and put on a movie.

Starbucks coffee (peppermint mocha - and pumpkin spice when they have it!)

Holding my 5 month old - oh the smell!!

The way my husband makes me laugh - like no one else can.

Cuddling with my older kids - and when they come to ME for a hug or kiss. Hard to come by as they get older!

Online shopping - hell, just shopping generally

I love the shopping trips to someplace like Target when you don't really NEED anything - just fun shopping!

Donating things and seeing the reaction on the receiver's face when they didn't expect so much! Also, bringing my kids to help with the donations.

answers from Columbus on

My favorite thing is a feeling of accomplishment I can get after one of the following...

Marked off everything on my 'things to do' list.

Realizing a moment when I have shown my children that I love them and nurtured them and helped them deal with a problem - or just life.

Told a great joke and made some one laugh, or at least smile. Especially my husband.

Had a really artistic day

Oh yeah, and brownies.
