Friend Makin' Mondays ~ 5 Senses

This week for Friend Makin’ Mondays (hosted by Kasey at All That Is Good), we are doing the 5 Senses Tag from Outside My Kitchen Window. We are to list four things we love and one thing we dislike for each category.



Smell
Like:
1. roses
2. chocolate chip cookies or brownies baking in the oven
3. my mom’s spaghetti sauce ~ it smells so good that you don’t even need to eat it to enjoy it
4. Victoria’s Secret Endless Love ~ it’s my favorite soap scent
Dislike:
1. Dear Almost~Little~Brother~in~Law’s farts ~ they’re the worst!

Touch
Like:
1. my kitty, Lily’s fur ~ she is so soft and I could just pet her for hours!
2. cool air blowing through the open windows at night when I’m bundled up in bed
3. Nate’s skin ~ it’s so smooth!
4. warm towels right out of the dryer
Dislike:
1. mud ~ it’s just gross!

Sound
Like:
1. Nate’s voice ~ he has an amazing singing and speaking voice ~ it’s really deep! (And of course, it’s an added bonus if he’s telling me he loves me when I get to hear it.)
2. my bird, Cricket’s little chirpy noises
3. any kind of music that makes me want to dance
4. laughter ~ it’s always nice to hear the sound of happiness
Dislike:
1. ambulance or fire truck sirens ~ I always worry about what has happened and hope that everyone involved is okay

Taste
1. chocolate
2. raspberries
3. our favorite dinner ~ chicken and rice with white sauce and corn
4. Crystal Light Cherry Pomegranate ~ it’s a current favorite
Dislike:
1. potatoes. yuck. (After getting several comments questioning my potato dislike, I think I should explain ~ I will eat french fries, but that's where I draw the line. I just can't stand the mushiness of other types of potatoes. I'm really picky when it comes to the texture of my food. :)~ )

Sight
1. Nate
2. any kind of feline ~ I love cats, and seeing one always makes me smile
3. a finished project that I’m really pleased with ~ I love to just look at creations I’m happy with :o)
4. a clean, organized house, which is what I’d really like to see right now considering ours is filled with unpacked boxes at the moment
Dislike:
1. blood, in real life or on t.v. ~ always makes me cringe!
Have a fabulous Monday!
~Heather

You don't like potatoes? Really? You know, french fries are made from potatoes....

I worry about sirens too. I always say a vague little prayer when I hear one.

Ooh, roses ARE one of the best smells!

I also hate when I hear sirens...I feel a little sick inside when they go by.

Also...how can you not like potatoes? They're like the food of the gods...baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, hash browns, french fries...um I need to go eat now.

I love the sound of laughter. Thats what won me over with DH; he made me laugh effortlessly. Your blog Header "Visions of Sugarplums" made me think of an Janet Evanovich book. If you love to read and haven't you should read her Stephanie Plum series. Hysterical!

I can't stand mashed potatoes -- the texture is awful -- but french fries are the best food ever! Can't wait to try that Crystal Light!

Oooh, there's nothing like a nice breeze...ahhh! And a clean and organized home is my dream. I'm working on it. Good luck with the boxes.
