15 Things I'm Lovin' Today

My SIL Amy posted this on her blog, and I thought I would steal it(in sisterly love of course). I love lists. Love making them, checking them off, reading them, actually I love everything about lists. It's my totally obsessive-compulsive, type A personality.

1. Dt. Mtn Dew, but only if it's poured over ice. I don't like the way it tastes unless I am drinking it over ice.

2. Chicken wings and Alfredo anything. I could actually eat them separate or together. Doesn't really matter. I know protein and vegetables are the appropriate foods when you are pregnant, but I just can't do pure protein right now. It was the same when I was prego with Clayton.

3. 24. I have never really gotten into a show like this, but I find it quite fascinating. Jack Bauer is a man of amazing abilities. I think the show would only be better if there was a little Donald Sutherland added in too. He could be Jack's dad. Donald Sutherland reminds me of my Granddaddy.

4. Another day with Jo.

5. Clayton's super cool personality, and amazing red hair. He is starting to say a few things, and he is getting incredibly expressive when he talks. Also, he has started talking with his hands, just like his mommy. Chad tells me that I couldn't talk if my hands were tied, and that's probably true.

6. The Papermate "Write for Hope" pen. This is my favorite pen by far. It writes great, and it is an inexpensive ball point pen. But, this special edition is pink. A portion of it's proceeds go to Breast Cancer research. And did I mention that it's pink?

7. Chad's recession garden. I have laughed about it all weekend, but it really is pretty cool. I wouldn't know what to do with a garden if I had to. But, Chad, being the country boy that he is, knows exactly what he's doing. I asked for corn, squash, and strawberries. I got corn, squash, strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, beets(gross), beans(green beans, I had to ask too), potatoes, green peppers, okra(gross), blackberries(don't ask because I don't know why we have these), I know there's more, but I can't remember what else.

8. Pineapple Mango wallflowers. Thanks for the tip Amy.

9. Spring. That also means that summer is right around the corner. I totally love summer. It gets hot here in the south, and I love it.

10. Chick Fil A's diet Lemonade. Get the large, add 4 packets of Splenda, and honey you have a grand day.

11. The way that Clayton says "Hey There". It's really high pitched and super excited. Like you are the best thing that boy has ever seen. Please keep in mind that he tells the dogs hi the same way that he tells Chad and me hi.

12. My Crackberry. I resisted the change to a data phone for a long time, but I don't think I could go back to the dark ages now if I had to. I can stay in contact with all 97,000 (read that 3) friends all the time. I can Facebook, email, blog, and play brick breaker all from one simple pink device. Have I mentioned that I love the color pink?

13. I love my God, and He loves me. I don't know why, but I am sure thankful.

14. Our Sunday School class. Chad teaches the high school class, and I'm there for moral support. Some days for him, and some days for the kids. Our class has to be the most ADD class in the entire educational building, but I love it. It is so much fun, and we(Chad and myself included) really do learn a lot from the Bible and from each other. If you are an adult you should definitely consider working with the youth of your church if you don't already. They are amazing. They know so much about life at such a young age. And what other age group could you hang out with and totally act like a nerd, and have the people around you think that it's funny?

15. My family. They are truly amazing, and helpful. I wish everybody had a family like mine. We are so goofy, loud, and sarcastic, but it's a lot of fun. And when you are in tough spot it's nice to have fun people around you. Laughter is truly the best medicine, and it's truly uplifting.

(I just ran spell checker on this post, and it had a field day with my "Nikkisms". Chad asked me recently if I actually listened to myself talk. What is that supposed to mean? He's just jealous he didn't think of some of these words first.)

Nikki,

I always love reading your blog. You're so creative, and your posts are so fun to read! Your expressions and 'Nikkisms' make your writing come alive. I must agree with items 10, and 12-15. I loveeee my Chick-Fil-A 'diet' lemonade. I havn't tried the splenda... so can you say FIELDTRIP!!

2. I'm a gadget man. I love my toys (some consider it a fault (ahem Amanda) but i'm glad other people love them too. Isn't technology amazing!

3. I love my Sunday School class. It helps me out so much, and i've learned so much, besides; we do have the best teacher in the church you know :).

4. My family means so much to me! I love your lists, and how they inspire us to think uplifting thoughts, and what a wonderful day it is :).

Take care!

- I agree w/ #1.
- && everything about his personality. Especially when he says "hey there" haha.. It makes you feel good even though he talks to Pepper the same way. Haha..
- Chad's recession garden (I love my dad's too) even though working it is tough. Sometimes I wish I were like you and didn't know what was going on then I wouldn't have to get dirty. Haha, but I feel good at the end of the day knowing I did something. Ya know?
I'll never forget that potato fight as long as I live! Btw: Okra is not gross haha... well when it's fried that is.
-I agree w/ # 9
-I agree w/ # 10 all but I'm all about Chick-fil-A #1 combo w/ a sweet tea :) Oh and their milkshakes are good too my wonderful SIL introduced me to that :)
- # 13 all the way!
- I actually wanted to work with the youth somewhere when I grow.
- # 15 I agree that your family is amazing and so is mine :)
