365 Things I Love

I saw one of my facebook friends posting weekly about 7 things they love each week. I thought this was a great idea, and I was inspired to make this a new feature. So to get started, here are seven things I love:

#1. My FamilyMy dad, sister, mom, and I at my sister's high school graduation last year.

#2. My Husband
I know he counts as family, but I think he deserves ranking all on his own.

#3. My Pets

Our puppy Trixie was a Christmas gift from my hubby last year. When we got her she was about the size of Jimmy's hand and weighed only two lbs. She's been my girl ever since! Jinx (the black cat on the right) was my cat when I was single and living alone, and Capers was my hubby's cat when he was single. Jinx is super loving and affectionate, and competes with the dog for who gets to sit in my lap. Capers is more of a loner, but when the mood strikes her she demands attention!

#4. Chocolate!
Do I even need to explain this one?

#5. The Philadelphia Story
One of my favorite movies. Three of my all time favorite actors (Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart, and Cary Grant) are the stars, and they are fabulous together!

#6. Reading
Isabel Allende is one of my favorite authors, and I am looking forward to reading her latest novel Island Beneath the Sea. I have always enjoyed reading, as far back as I can remember. I used to be the little girl in the corner with a book at all the family functions.

#7. Thunderstorms

I love thunderstorms, especially at night. I like curling up in bed with my husband, the dog, and a good book and listening to the wind and the thunder outside.

What are your favorite things? I would love to hear about them in the comments!


  1. 1. My husband--he rocks so very much!
    2. My boxers--Boris and Lucy. They are my furry children.
    3. My family (especially my brothers)
    4. My students
    5. peanut butter
    6. Crocs shoes
    7. Hello Kitty!

  2. Great Post! Good looking family, I love your Mom's red hair! Ooh those chocolates look delightful. I've never see that movie but James Stewart was one of the greatest actors. Really nice getting to know you better :D

    I have too many favorite things. But I'll just say, one of them is your blog :D

  3. Dana - Mmmm. . . peanut butter. That's a good one!

    Eve - You are too sweet! Thank you for the wonderful comment. You made my day!

  4. What a GREAT idea.. I hope you don't mind but I have officially liberated this idea from you <3

  5. I'd have to agree with Eve... your blog is a fav read! [and my favs are soo many .. and the list grows each day]

  6. p-enguin - I don't mind at all. I "liberated" it from a facebook friend, so I can't even claim it as my own. lol.

    Totally - Thank you so much! That's something I love to hear.

  7. How cool is that? Love your items. I especially love the thunderstorms!

  8. I like your list. I might have to copy it and post something like it on my blog, if you don't mind.

    I just wanted to say that Isabel Allende is one of my fav authors too. Have you read Paula? I thought I like her before, but after reading Paula, I was just amazed by her honesty and her style.

  9. Maria - I haven't read "Paula", but now I want to! I just finished "House of the Spirits", which was her first book, I believe. The first book of hers I read was "Daughter of Fortune" and I was hooked after that.

    Feel free to make your own list. : )
