In the spirit of Ree's post on things she loves...

I Love:

My husband.

My kiddos.

The way my hubby makes my coffee.

Travis's mispronunciations.

Ashley's babbles.

Freshly washed sheets.

Really good chocolate.

How Ashley curls her body up completely around me when she nurses and seems so much smaller.

Caramel Macchiatos with extra Caramel.

New makeup.

New socks.

Being barefoot.

Really hot showers.

The way my kiddos smell fresh from the bath.

Honey I Washed the Kids soap from LUSH (used as a shampoo bar for Ashley so I can smell her hair all day)

Kissing my kids while they sleep.

Good coffee.

Good wine.

Bamboo windchimes.

Painting my toenails.

Really great fitting jeans.


Baking with Travis.

Bargain shopping.

Knitting with really yummy yarn and bamboo needles.

Tea with honey.

My iPhone.

The anticipation of walking into a hotel room for the first time.

Road trips.

Cows at pasture.

Good seafood.




Bath & Body Works.

Grocery shopping.


Clothes for Travis that look like shrunken versions of Jeff's clothes.

Clean bathrooms. (but not CLEANING them!)

Birds chirping.

Christmas lights.

Christmas cookies.

Bulbs blooming in the spring.

Pick-it-Yourself fruit.

Roadside cherry stands.

Quiet time.

The warning signs didn't phase me... I have had a killer headache all day... I have been extra thirsty, extra agitated... craving chocolate...

Then I went to the bathroom a few minutes ago. Oh, right! I DO have an APP for that! Maybe I just need to actually pay attention to these things. And, in case you're wondering... according to said was actually a day late. But, it might be gone juuust in time for Valentine's day. :)

Checking in

So rain sucks... and so do colds... and Travis has been home from school for the last 2 days with a cold. Ugh. Seriously. I got 2.5 weeks into Couch to 5k and it decided to rain fr 12 days straight. And another storm is brewing as we speak. Soooo.... obviously starting over next week. Weather permitting.
I have been thinking of starting the Sonoma Diet again. My moods have been really low lately. I know the SAD is a big part of why. I think I also have some nutritive deficiency from 2 pregnancies and nursing for almost 5 straight years. I need to get my thyroid checked. I also need to do a zillion other things. Procrastination is ingrained....
