Five Things That Bring Me Comfort

by MARIA on November 15, 2012

These are the five things (ironically, they all start with C) that bring me comfort

1. CHILDREN (mine, of course)

Yes, I do bribe them to sit pretty in the pictures. Worth every penny.


It’s a pricey, yet necessary comfort for Mommy.


Cookbooks are glorious and  you can never have too many. Seriously, if someone could convince my husband of this, I would so appreciate it.


Isn’t my husband handsome?


I mean laughter and the funny stuff, but chuckles started with the letter C so I went with it. Nothing is better than laughter and funny stuff and laughing so hard you can’t breathe, and that always brings me comfort.

This makes me laugh:

So does this:

And everything that comes out of this guy’s mouth is perfection:

UPDATED: I had to edit my post to add a sixth – CARDIGANS!! How could I forget CARDIGANS??? Also, coincidentally cardigans starts with a C, if you hadn’t noticed.

Thanks to the lovely MamaKat for inspiring this little post.

LOVE the kids barista uniforms! “Venti Nonfat Caramel Machiato” was one of my sons first words. And I am loving that you arrange your cookbooks by color. I think I’m gonna have to copy that!

Thanks Gretchen!! I’ve “rainbowed” all the bookcases in my house – it’s an obsession.

GOOD GOLLY as if I thought it wasn’t possible to love you more, you go and pull out Schmidt and Olan.

Ditto on the rainbow cookbook admiration. I get most of my recipes from Pinterest these days, but I’m inspired to go out and buy a whole mess of cookbooks just so I can do that.

Thanks Sue!!

I have waaay too many cook books too! They are lined up in my kitchen in a special hutch, just for cook books. It’s ridiculous probably, considering I never cook from them. lol

Love your list!

Thanks Kate. I’ll be honest, that shelf is only about 20% of my collection – It’s a problem!!

I love how your cookbooks are colored coded…they are YOUR cook books right? LOL! Great list of comfort…especially collin! :)


9 MARIA November 15, 2012 at 10:28 am

Yes! They’re mine! I had a shelf made in our kitchen specifically for them. Of course, I now so many that I’ve had to use another shelf in another room to fit them all. I can’t get rid of them!!

Oh my gosh I just watched the Real Housewives video and it made my day!! So so funny!


11 MARIA November 15, 2012 at 11:00 am

There are several – that one is his most recent. You need to see all of them because they’re hilarious.

Ha…of course they have to be your own children, that would be weird if it was someone else’s children. I love shmidt. I was telling my coworkers yesterday I was trying to find images of Jack Johnson to pin, but didn’t find anything pinworthy, so I pinned a lot of schmidt! Happy Thursday!

ACK!! I LOVE Schmidt!! Love love love him!


14 MARIA November 15, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Me too – OBSESSED!!


15 Harriet November 15, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Yes, yep, ya, oh yea and ha ha. You crack me up.
