22. Being an Aunt
I absolutely love being an aunt to my two nephews. Jimmy and I took them out to a movie, dinner, and for ice cream last night while their parents had a date night. They are a handful, but they are so funny at the same time. At dinner, the almost-five-year old asked me, "Aunt Courtney, what are those things all over your face?" At first I freaked out. I looked at Jimmy like, "What things is he talking about?!". Then it dawned on me that he was asking about my freckles!
23. Getting Magazines in the Mail
I get super excited when my magazines start showing up every month. I subscribe to probably about seven or eight different publications (mostly fashion & shopping related), and love to go through them for outfit inspiration and to keep up with new ideas.
24. Being a Redhead!
My hair has been pretty much every possible shade (well, any color found in nature), but I always feel the most like"me" when I am a redhead. I don't know if it's because my mom is a redhead and so was my grandma, or what, but I always come back to it. (I was actually blonde for most of my life. I was super-blonde as a kid, but when I hit puberty my hair started turning an ugly dingy blonde color, so I started adding highlights. I was a blonde all the way through school, up until after I met Jimmy when I was about 22. Sometimes I'll run into people who I haven't seen since high school and they're always shocked that I'm not blonde anymore!)
#25. Sleeping In
I absolutely love sleeping in on the weekends. If I don't get to sleep until at least 9am one day a week, I am not a happy camper. I don't know how I'm going to handle it if we have kids.
I love to laugh, as I'm sure most people do. I grew up in a household where we were always making fun of each other and joking, and my husband and I are constantly trying to make each other laugh. He sings me funny little songs all the time.
Speaking of laughter. . . .
#27. Hyperbole and a Half
This very well may be the funniest website I have ever read. I swear Allie Brosh (the writer and illustrator behind the blog) is in my head! This post in particular made me laugh so hard the other night that I cried, and accidentally woke Jimmy up.
I love it when I log into my dashboard and there are new comments! I really appreciate people taking the time to leave me a little message to tell me what they thought about my post, to give me their opinion on a topic, answer a question, or even just to say "hi!".
