Friend Makin' Mondays ~ My Ten Favorite Things

I would love to make some more bloggy friends, so I was thrilled this morning when I ran across Friend Makin' Mondays hosted by Kasey at All That Is Good on AndreaLeigh's My Chihuahua Bites blog. Today’s task is to list your ten favorite things. And here mine are:

1. My dear boyfriend, Nathan (a.k.a. Nate, which he went by in middle school. His grown-up name is Nathan, but he’ll always be Nate to me). We met in seventh grade choir, went to several dances together our sophomore year in high school, and reconnected in December ’07 at our local country bar. We’ve been inseparable ever since. He makes me laugh more than any one person ever has in my whole life, and he is my best friend. I love him dearly, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping he’d make me Mrs. Nathan X someday soon.

Here’s a picture of us on Halloween ~ he was a vampire and I was his all~too~willing victim. :o)

2. Pink & Green. I have long been a fan of the color pink, but only recently discovered how fabulous it looks with green. The two colors together just make me smile!

3. My Ipod. I love this little gadget. My office at work can get pretty lonely (I’m at the opposite end of the floor from the rest of my department), and I think I would go mad if I didn’t have the noise of my music and audiobooks to keep me company. I have listened to Harry Potter and the Twilight series so many times that I almost know them all by heart.

4. Raspberries. My all~time favorite fruit. I love strawberries almost as much, but raspberries really take the cake in my book.

5. My girls, Jazzy & Lily. I rescued them from underneath a friend’s house three years ago. We’d been feeding a feral cat for two years or so, and my girls are her granddaughters. They live with my parents now ~ I lived there during graduate school and had to leave them behind when I moved out, mainly because I couldn’t have pets where I moved, but also because they fell in love with my parents and their cat, and I knew I couldn’t separate the bunch. One of the highlights of my week is seeing them during our weekly dinner at my parents’.

Here is our first picture together.

My small business. I never, ever thought I would have my own business. But I absolutely love the idea of making a little extra money by selling something I have created. And four months after selling my first garter, I have almost broken even!

7. Chocolate. I’m a typical girl. And I love my chocolate. I can’t go a day without it!

8. Numbers. What can I say? I’m an accountant, and I just love the way numbers all fit together. This probably makes me a big dork, and I’m okay with that.

9. Pilates. It has done wonders for my body, and helps my back remain pain-free. Plus it’s so relaxing.

10. Blogging. I love having an outlet to share my feelings and simply just write. And it’s always fun to make new friends!

Hi Heather! I loved your list. Your little kitties are so cute and cuddly! I also love raspberries. We have a raspberry bush in our backyard and I love to go back there in the summer and pick the berries and make them into jam.

Thanks for letting me stop by!

Great list! Pink and green is one of my all time favorite color combinations! I too own a small business of making and selling girly accessories - it's so much fun. It's nice to meet you!

those chocolates look so yummy! I bet they would go great with the raspberries.

Do you do pilates somewhere or do you do a video...I've been looking for a good pilates video. Glad you joined us!

Good to see you for your first Friend Makin' Monday! I'm a little late to the party, but better late than never! This is a great list that you have come up with for your favorites. I am also a huge fan of raspberries and we always look forward to raspberry picking in the summer. Hope you have a blessed day!
