Today's Show is Brought to You by the Letter S

If you are not reading Mim’s Muddles then you should stop by and take a look. Mim (extremely cool and down to earth) was recently tagged by a friend to come up with a list of 10 things that she likes that start with the letter B.

Then she tagged me to come up with a list of 10 things that I like that start with the letter S. So… here goes… in no particular order:

1. Sweater sets: I am always cold, unless I am pregnant and I am a sucker for sweater sets. My husband joked with me about this recently because I have been trying to make myself look presentable for work. He joked that I am trying to impress someone at the office. Then he said, "no if you were trying to impress someone at the office YOU would start wearing more sweater sets." I am such a dork.

2. Sleeping: I love to sleep. I don’t have a problem waking up in the morning, but I really, really, like getting into bed and covering up with the blankets, and putting my head on my pillow… it’s so wonderful! Naps? Even better!

3. Strawberries: Love strawberries. Love strawberry shortcake. Love strawberry jam and strawberry lip gloss.

4. Squidoo: Yes, I squidoo. I’ve even made some money for myself and for charity off of a few of my lenses. The page that gets the most hits is my page on Eric Violette (the guy from the free credit commercial). Eric’s page gets several hundred hits a week.

5. Spring: Winter is tough and summer in the Eastern US is h-u-m-i-d! Spring is perfect, absolutely, positively perfect.

6. Sunsets: Everyone loves a good sunset. Usually, I am inside cooking dinner when the sun goes down, but it is always nice to enjoy a sunset. This sunset picture was taken while we were out on the boat with my parents.

7. Spaghetti: Spaghetti has been my favorite dinner since I was a kid. I’ve often said that if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would be spaghetti. I like it fresh or cold or leftover or in a sandwich. Delicious!

8. Sugar cookies: I could eat them by the boxful. I’d prefer them over chocolate chip any day (but they aren’t better than oatmeal raisin). I am a lover of ALL baked goods.

9. Star Wars Lego for the Wii: DH and I spent the better part of our late night hours playing Star Wars Lego over the Christmas break. Shhhh… please don’t tell anyone. We had a great time. Two people can play at the same time and it takes a bit of teamwork. I am sure that a therapist could tell a lot about our marriage just by the way that we work together (or not) at this game.

10. State House: I work for our State legislature at the State capital. Our State House is the oldest State House in the country that is still in legislative use. I like the State House because it is old and historic, it is a symbol of our State (I am a proud Marylander), and it is the symbol of our legislative process (which I am blessed to be part of). This picture is a pewter State House ornament which I got from the Governor's Christmas Party employee open house.

So, I’ve come to the end of my list. Leave me a comment if you want to play along too and I will send you a letter.

#7: Too funny! I have often said the same of spaghetti!

And as far as #9 goes, I may need some help with this game. My boys are playing like CRAZY and I have no idea what's happening. I mean, I know the movies and I know Loegos, but why are there so many buttons? Do you seriously need buttons a,b,c,x,z,+,- AND a nunchuk to play this game??? Geez...

Nap Mom said...

Star Wars Lego is great. Yes, you need all of those buttons (how else would you use the force) and the nunchuck as well.

I have a freind who plays SW Legos Wii with her son and he apparently beats up on her instead of working together against the enemy. HA! Love my State House ornament too! :) And I have no idea about squidoo. I'm going to check it out today.

Another lovely list. I totally agree with you about the awesomeness of Mimbles too.

Since you love sunsets, here is a link to a lovely sunset I took last year with my boys.
Feel free to browse the others too.
