The Things I Love!

So yesterday and today were kind of hard days for me. I have a lot of decisions to make in the next few months that are not easy ones. Today I have been a little depressed and swimming in a world of self-doubt. I stumbled upon my friend's blog which reminded me that even when things get tough...there are always things that make you smile!

So in honor of her post...I am doing my own. I encourage all my blog readers to respond in a comment and let me know some of the things you love! I also encourage all my blogging friends to blog about something similar to this! It definitely leaves you feeling warm, fuzzy, and just happier than you did when you first started it out! :)

The things I love...(in no particular order)


  • All things Emily

  • My husband

  • Watching my daughter experience all her "firsts"

  • Witnessing Emily laugh at funny and silly things

  • Ice Cream

  • Long meaningful talks with Erik

  • Hugs from Emily

  • Kisses from Emily (even if they are slobbery!)

I promise I'll blog this all tomorrow but I had to share...

I too am a Hollywood gossip hound! I wish I could subscribe to People, US Weekly, and OK. I read Yahoo Entertainment news every day and frequent TMZ.com and Perez Hilton's blog. I don't know why I'm so interested but I totally am!

Well, I can list 5 here!!!
You had some awesome ones!

1. My husband, who is too wonderful for mere words. My words cannot do him justice.
2. My boys. They are simply amazing. I am so lucky.
3. Friends... Moo, Wendi, Toni, Dani. They let me be me, they don't judge or laugh at me for my obsessions! They support me but do not hesitate to tell me if they think I am wrong.
4. Being comfortable with myself and my body.
5. My pets that I love so much... my other 3 kids. Life would not be as good without my animal companionship.
