Fun lovin'

Family - I love our little family so much. Jason and I constantly talk about how blessed we are to have our "good buddy." I also have fabulous parents and in-laws. They are always there when we need them and even when we don't.

Facials - Have you had one? It's heaven. Just thinking about it makes me want to schedule one.

Friends - I feel blessed to have some the best friends in the world. I've had the same best friend since 4th grade. She has seen me through EVERYTHING. I LOVE my sorority sisters!!! No matter how long it's been since I talked with any of them I know they'd be there if I needed them. I have also made great friends teaching over the years.

Funnel cakes - They make me feel like a kid again each time I eat one!

I'll take an E please...

Earings - I wear my favorite pair of earing all most everyday. My diamond studs. They were a present from my parents when I got married. They are very special to me.

Elastic - Probably the most wonderful invention for women when we are having a "fat" day. I love coming home and putting on my comfy pants after a long day.

D- lightful

Democracy - I feel lucky to live in the United States of America.

Diners - I love diner food!! A greasy burger, fries, and a milkshake can really hit the spot sometimes.

Dressing up - It is always fun to get a new dress and shoes and go someplace special.

C to Believe

Christ - He died for us. Enough said.

Camera - I love taking pictures with my new camera that I got at Christmas. I keep it on my at all times now so I can capture all of Ben's cuteness! :)

B is for Ben

This letter is VERY easy for me!
Benjamin - He is the light of my life and the reason I smile 20 times a day. I can't imagine my life with out him. He is the perfect combination of sweet and stubborn. He loves to cuddle with his mommy.

Breakfast food
- You name I love it...french toast, check....pancakes, check.....bacon, check...

Babies - I love the way they smell and how they fit perfectly in the nape of your neck. I can't wait to have another one!

Books - I have really started to enjoy reading and always have at least two that I'm reading now.

Bargains - I love a good deal and feel really proud of myself when I find something amazing at half the price.

Copy Cat

A friend of mine is writing down things that she is grateful for and I thought that I'd do the same. It is helpful when you think things aren't going well or just need a reminder of how lucky you are. I'm going to try and do this everyday and go through the whole alphabet.

Applesauce - It is one of the few things that I can always get Ben to eat. Meal times are not always so fun around here. (see here)

Air Supply - I love their music! Just makes me want to sing out loud.

Acceptance - Something I'm thankful that I have from my wonderful husband :)
