10 Things I Love

 Ashley at The Johnstons tagged me in her "10 Things I Love" post.  Exciting stuff!
 The rules are simple:

State Who Tagged You:

Ashley is a friend that I went to high school with. She was younger than me, but we had some mutual friends (and it's a VERY small town, so you know everyone!).  I've gotten to know her a lot better through blogging and other social medias and this is what I know:  She's a super cool girl with a great family, and a the handsomest son (seriously, ladies lock up your daughters... he's going to be a heartbreaker!). 

State 10 Things You Love:

1. My family.  Without a doubt.  My hubby and kids are more than I could have asked for.  And they say that you can't pick your family, but I think I lucked out. Big time.  They're not perfect, but they're there for me when I need them.  I couldn't be who I am without them!  ♥

2. Montages.  {Especially when they're in slow mo}, and more often than not... the ones of old people falling down get me every time!  I know that sounds HORRIBLE, and obviously I don't want anyone to get hurt, but America's Funniest Videos always puts together the best ones!  Hubby thinks I'm nuts... but I've almost peed my pants watching them!  Like this one here.

3. Reading.  I used to read all the time, but after having my kids I found it really hard to "find the time" to enjoy a good book.  Now that the kids are older and I'm not 100% exhausted by the time they go to bed, I've been able to get through a few good books over the last couple of months.  Really get into reading again!  And I'm thinking of joining a book club through the local library.

4. Celebrity gossip.  For the most part, very entertaining.  I really love following celebrity pregnancies and hearing all the crazy names they come up with!  There are some "news" stories that I'm surprised can still make any sort of headline. Lindsay Lohan, for example.  Really?  Who cares.  And most recently, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian.   Tacky, no?  Not that cheating is uncommon in Hollywood, but I just think the constant Twitter updates & PDA's were a bit much.  And hasn't she gotten way too skinny!?

5. Anything handmade - especially jewelry & clothes.  Which is why I'm such an Etsy junkie.  I spend hours every week adding things to my cart virtual window shopping.  And my sister is learning to knit, which is super cool.  When she feels up to it, I might ask her to make me this:

6. Photography.  Both mine and others.  I've always loved taking pictures, and I don't even think I'm even an ''amateur'' status yet, but I'm starting to learn a bit more about my camera and with the help of Picnik, I'm having a lot of fun playing around with different ''looks.''  And I LOVE checking out other people's photography, especially on their blogs.  So many talented people out there!

7. Pinup / Rockabilly hairstyles.  So wish I could pull something like this off.  Beautiful.  I can't do anythign with my hair... but if I could, it would be something like this:

8. Organization.  Being organized is important to me.  I'm not necessarily a huge list maker, but I have an agenda and I use it.  I would be LOST without my Google calendar!  I don't like going into anything 'unprepared.'

9. Michael C. Hall.  He gave us David Fisher AND Dexter Morgan.  Need I say more!?

 10. Being barefoot.  I hate having to wear socks.  Another reason to love the warmer weather!

So, there you have it.  10 random things that I love.  I think the rules are for me to tag 10 more people... but most of the people I would tag have been tagged by someone else.  So, instead I'm just going to say... 
TAG!  You're it!  

Pin It


  1. We have a book club in our little group of girls and then we host at our library in quyon - this Friday is one and we are discussing Crow Lake. Next one is The Carrie Diaries. Hvae you read Emily Giffin's Something Borrowed and Something Blue? Something Borrowed is coming out in theatres, you should read those. I hve them if you would like to borrow!

  2. Ah Lena! You are too sweet. :) Cole is definitely going to be a heartbreaker and even more so thanks to Memphis' adorable clothing. His daycare teachers already adore the skinny jeans and all the funky shoes...yikes...I'm afraid of when he's older!

    Great list! I love to read as well, wish we had a book club in my area, might have to look into that!


I ♥ hearing from you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a little message!
