Friend Makin' Mondays!

Something fun...over at Kasey's , she has Friend Makin' Mondays, where you can get to know some fellow bloggers through her "tasks"...so go over and link up.


This weeks task is... 10 Favorite Things!

1. Shopping...whether it's at a thrift store, a department store, or the grocery store, I LOVE to shop...it is therapy, the only problem is...NO Money, oh well at least I can window shop. It's still fun to be out and about.

2. I love the color yellow, especially bright yellow. It is so happy and warm, and makes me smile!


3. The smell of fresh cut grass... there is nothing like a saturday in the summer of yard work , and when we sit in the swing in the backyard when we're done... I love to smell the dirt and the newly cut grass. (kind of weird huh?)



4. My Mom and Dad, (and all other extended family) They are the best parents ever! Oh I wish we lived closer!



5. Fingernail polish...in lots of wild colors. I love them for my toes, it just always makes me happy to look down and see these bright, happy toes smilin' up at me!

6. Daisies, daisies, and more daisies. I love these delicate little flowers.


7. Camping with my family in the great outdoors. I am not really someone who likes being dirty, I am pretty much a "make-up" girl all the time, but I love being out in the wilderness, where it is quiet, and being able to sit around a campfire and laugh and enjoy each others company.

8. Dr. Pepper...oh how I love thee... I don't drink it but on rare occasions anymore because I'm trying to shed pounds, but there is nothing better then a fountain D.P. with "light ice". Refreshing!


9. Sunflowers... just like daisies these bright, happy flowers make my day, I have big, huge ones in my garden. I dream of someday seeing one of those fields full of them in person.


10. My handsome husband and my beautiful children. You make my days brighter and my life so much better. I love you all to the moon a hundred times! (these are some camping pics from last summer...refer to number 7)

Be sure to check back on Friday...I have an exciting announcement to make and can't wait to tell you all!! YAY!!

I like shopping, too, but find it a lot more therapeutic when done alone or with a friend but withOUT my husband and 4 kids!

I need my nails painted, badly. Maybe you can suggest a colo? They're currently black. ;-)

I loooovvvveeee the smell of fresh cut grass too! I can't believe I forgot to put that on my list! It's not weird at all! Loved your blog by the way

E said...

Fresh cut grass is soooo awesome!

Shawn said...

Once you make to switch to Dr. Diet Pepper, or as we call it DDP, you won't go back, It has to be a fountain DDP though, it's just not the same from a can!

Tanya from Miller Racing Family said...

Great list this week and I love all the super cute pictures. I am so happy to find someone else who loves the fresh cut yard. I tell everyone I do some of my best thinking on the lawn mower as no phones, no computer and no one needing mommy. What makes cutting grass even better a nice cold DR. PEPPER. I want to invite you to come over to my blog, I am having a bath and body works giveaway! Have a blessed day!
