Blog Journal Day 6: 20 Of My Favorite Things

Welcome to blog journal #6 :P

I have a feeling picking 20 things may be hard (we all know that picking 1 has proven to be difficult for me!)

So, here we go! (I totally say that like Mario from the Mario Brothers Wii game I have, lol)

1. My husband and my dog. They make every single day great.

2. My family - by blood, marriage, and friendship.

3. Reading. You should see my poor bookcases, I have issues.

4. Magazines. I realize they aren't exactly eco-friendly but I love reading them, looking at them, holding them. I wanted to write for them growing up, so I think that explains the love.

5. Sweet tea. Yum.

6. Pumpkin.... anything. Love it. Want it.

7. Sewing. It is my newest hobby and I adore it.

8. Decorating. Also a newer hobby now that the house is in order. Also, I've discovered that a little more room + actually having a few bucks after paying bills = decorating being more fun.

9. Babies/toddlers/little kids. Not in a creepy way. I love kids. I have issues with talking to adults, I freeze up. But give me 5 minutes with a youngin' and we'll be bffs in no time.

10. Gilmore Girls and Big Bang Theory. See earlier posts.

11. Dave Matthews Band. The only band I'd ever consider throwing away my life and following around the world.

12. Yoga. Nothing describes the feeling of finally getting a new move down. And they're all new to me.

13. My ipod. Putting in earbuds and tuning out the people around me = bliss.

14. My new dSLR. Photography is a not-so-new hobby for me but one that I absolutely love.

15. Baking. Love is making cookies for your favorite people. Satisfaction is hearing them go "ohhhh my goodness" upon their first bite.

16. Writing. My outlet. My passion. My love. And I love that no matter how much I ignore it I know it will welcome me back with open arms.

17. Learning. I wish I could go back to school. I want to go. Right now. I adore learning new things and hope that is something I can pass on to my children. And the more obscure the thing I'm learning the better. Have I ever told you that I learned how to load a canon when I was 5?

18. Blogs. I have to know what is going on with everybody at all times, I'm annoying like that. I want to know what is going on with you - yes you! So blogs give me that window into other people's worlds that I so crave.

19. Fall. Love it all. The cooler temps. The breezes. The beautiful leaves. College football (Ill-ini!!). Pumpkins! Apples! Mums. Halloween. Thanksgiving. My birthday. Love.it.all.

20. My online buddies. You all are awesome :P And inside jokes among online buds = perfect.

Blog Journal Day 2: Favorite Movie

This one was another hard one! Unlike the favorite song post I just could not pick one answer for this one. I'm sure there are more movies that I could count as a favorite, but these are the ones that came to mind.

Blog Journal Day 1: Favorite Song

Nothing like starting off with a hard question! There are so many songs that I adore that it is so hard to pick a favorite.

If I had to pick one though I'd have to go with Crush by the Dave Matthews Band (shocker, right?). I adore this song. I love the words, the melody, and the video. It is a gorgeous song that I never get tired of. It is on my ipod about 4 times and I never get tired of hearing it. Plus it is a blast to sing along to at a concert.

Hello, Again

Sorry for being gone recently. We've been really busy working on a ton of projects around the house. After a year of being in our house we've finally tackled a ton of things on our never-ending to do list. Pictures coming soon, promise!

In the meantime, I recently saw this 30 day blog journal over at The Domestic Princess and thought it would be a fun way to get back into blogging more. So look for these posts soon!

1 Year Ago Today

One year ago today we adopted Grux! It has been the best year ever - adopting him is the best thing we have ever done. I strongly support adopting a shelter or rescue dog - I swear it is like they know what you've done for them and love even more for it.

Seriously, he is the best thing ever.
