my 10 LOVES

"What truly is logic?  Who decides reason?  My quest has taken me to the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional, and back.  I have made the most important discovery of my career - the most important discovery of my life.  It is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reason can be found. I am only here tonight because of you.  You are the only reason I am.  You are all my reasons."
-John Nash, A Beautiful Mind

I was tagged by Karen.  I'm suppose to list 10 things that I love.  And, in keeping with my posting tradition, I have included my favorite quote about love from the movie A Beautiful Mind.

And,  here is my list in no particular order.

1.  I love being a lefty.  Sure, my ink often smears when I write.  Yeah, my paper is always turned completely sideways.  But, despite all that, being left-handed is really cool.  We lefties love other lefties.  It's so funny when a fellow lefty sees me writing and happily exclaims, "Hey!  I'm a lefty too."  It's cool belonging to the Lefty Club.

2.  I love text messaging.  It's fast, it's fun, and boy, oh, boy it beats talking on the phone.  Man, I just love hearing my text message alert.  It's like Christmas morning!

3.  I love music.  I can't say enough about the importance of music in my life.  Music helps me emotionally, mentally and physically.  It calms me down, motivates me and makes me think.  It's a beautiful thing.

4.  I love lip gloss.  There's nothing like a little shimmer on my lips to help me get through a rainy day.

5.  I love my husband.  I tried to make this list about things that I love that aren't obvious, like my husband. But, I really do love my husband and not just because he's my husband, but because he's an amazing fella.  He loved it when I made more money than him.  He didn't mind when I struggled taking his last name after we were married.  He has awful taste in music.  He looks great in jeans.  He thinks about ways to surprise me and then tells me about his ideas instead of actually carrying them out and surprising me.  I could go on for days!

6.  I love people watching.  People watching in an airport is the best.  Such a wide variety of people and personalities everywhere!

7.  I love cities.  It wasn't until I moved to a small city in Idaho that I realized I am a major fan of big cities.  I love all the movement, the sounds, the smells.  It's all so great.  I can't wait to live in a bigger city soon!

8.  I love Feng Shui.  Okay, so I'm not a real feng shui expert, but I do believe every room in a home should have a purpose and a comfortable layout.  When I first moved into my current home, I spent hours arranging and rearranging my formal living room.  It was endless, but once I found the perfect place for each item of furniture it was like magic.  

9.  I love my puppies.  My husband will laugh his head off when he reads this.  I think I utter the words, "I can't stand these dogs!" more than anything else.  My dogs are so annoying.  They bark non-stop.  They pee whenever they get excited.  They track in mud all throughout my house.  They require so much attention like food and grooming.  Ugh!  But, at the end of the day, they are so loyal and love nothing more than to cuddle up next to me while I watch Law & Order.

10.  I love laughing.  Whether I'm all alone watching an episode of 30 Rock, in a big crowd full of friends and family or browsing through Awkward Family Photos, laughing is great.  It really is the best medicine.

Thanks for the tag, K-Lo.  It was sure fun!


  1. I love laughing too. I always get sad when I realize I haven't chuckled in the past hour....and then I do something about it. Great list!

  2. Such a great list, Em!

    And I love being in the Lefty Club with you!

    And your husband cracks me up, too. I miss hanging out with you guys every single day. It's one of the few things I miss about Utah.

  3. I love NOT talking on the phone in all forms.

  4. Great list - I'm a lefty too and hate smudging ink!!!

  5. What's your position on new socks, candy apples and clothes fresh out of the drier?

  6. Ha hA HA! I am like your hubby - I can never keep a surprise from Brennan and always end up telling him! About the photobook - I know, I felt pretty good about my deal. I ordered it from My Publisher (which I guess is the current prefered vendor of Costco - it's what pops up when you go to order a photobook from costco online). Anywho, what I did was wait until they had a 50% off gift card sale and I purchased a $78 gift card for 39.00 (of coruse reading their terms and conditions to make sure a gift card can be coupled with a coupon code!) Then I waited until they had a 40% off sale to couple it with. So far they had the 40% off sale for mothers and fathers day - I expect they will have them for more holidays. And they seriously have THE BEST 100% satisfaction gurantee policy I have ever seen - even if YOU are the one who made the mistake. I received my book today, it was very nice and good quality. I noticed one page left off "Nine month portraits" - I emailed them to see what could be done about this. They said I needed to install a software update, and "re-do" the page and then resubmit and the gave me a "coupon code" to get the book sent to me again, EXPEDITED, and COMPLETELY free! I don't know what service is better than that! I highly recommend them, if just for that. It didn't take days for them to get back to me about the problem, they got back to me within minutes! Check them out! Tonee :) :)

  7. New socks are fabulous. Candy apples, no thanks. No messy. Clothes right out the dryer are the best! :)
