Things I Love

  • My husband. He's been gone for 12 days and I've missed him.
  • The fact that my son George is his own biggest fan. When he tells a joke or a funny story he cracks himself up more than anyone else. I can't imagine where he gets that from.
  • George's sense of humor.
  • That McKenna cracks open a new book at least once a week if not more. Sometimes she's reading two or three at a time.
  • Jona's confidence.
  • The fact that Jillian is following in her sister's footsteps when it comes to reading. She loves the Junie B. Jones books at the moment.
  • Late night visits from family members that cause tears of happiness and joy rather than the other sort.
  • Nacho's and cheese, no peppers from Taco Amigo.
  • Doing puzzles at my mom's house.
  • My avocado green toilet.
  • My family members that brought that late night good news. I'm so happy for them I can hardly stand it.
  • The yellow and purple crocuses (croci?) that are blooming in my front yard.
  • My picture wall in my front room.
  • Doing puzzles in the front room at my mom's house.
  • 60 degree temps and throwing open the windows wide.
  • Febreze
  • The fact that my house is clean....don't know how long it will last but it's clean right now.
  • Good friends online and in real life.
  • Baby Powder.
  • Family near and far.
  • Hoop earrings.

Will you come to my house, clean it, do a puzzle and laugh until you cry with me? I'll feed you nacho's and cheese (no peppers) from Rosa's and let you bask in the 75° weather...and give you hoop earrings...pleeeeeeease! I really want someone else to help me clean my house!

I like puzzles, too. Why does nobody put together puzzles anymore?

(Missed ya at the blogger lunch!)

Good news is the best! Even if it does come late at night.

And I just never got the puzzle gene. The rest of the fam did, I missed it.

I've never eaten at a Taco Amigo, but now I'm hungry :)

And I love being able to open my windows right now too!

I haven't been able to get into hoop earrings. I don't know if it's because I remember them so clearly from the 80's, and I shun all things 80's (except the music, of course, which is the bestest ever) or if they just don't look good on me. Anyway, I'm glad you're rockin' yours!
