As a side note, I think everyone knows that I love my sweet kids, husband, and family, so I am going to avoid including them in this list so that it can be as random and fun as possible:) Just thought I should mention that in advance.
Fall and back to school. The sound of crunching leaves and the sight of fresh pens and pencils get me giddy with excitement.
Mexican food + frosty margaritas. A match made in food and beverage heaven.
Dinner by candlelight. Bonus points if it's outside. I can't remember the last time I've enjoyed a candlelit dinner, as the thought of anything involving a rambunctious toddler and open flames is positively cringe-worthy at this point.
Coca Cola classic. I'd rather have an icy glass of coke than almost anything else in the world.
The holidays. I know (almost) everyone claims to love Christmas, but I genuinely big, red, puffy heart love everything about the Christmas holidays. If I could, I'd have a Christmas tree and twinkle lights in every room of my house for at least 2 months of the year, garland on every mantel, Christmas cookies in decorative tins stocking my refrigerator...all of it. I think the anticipation of the holidays may be even sweeter than the holidays themselves. December 24th is my absolute favorite day of the year.
Navy blue and white stripes. On anything.
London. Total Anglophile right here. There was a big picture of a grey London scene with the iconic red phone booths at Ikea over the weekend...And I'm honestly embarrassed to admit how much I wanted that thing. Bad, y'all. Bad.
Chick-fil-A. The waffle fries. The nuggets. The milkshakes. Let's just say I'm a fan.
Shopping. My heart literally skips a beat in joy when I find good deals. I really wish I could shop for a living. I'd be so good at it;)
Nineties sitcoms like Everybody Loves Raymond, King of Queens, Full House, etc. They just make me feel good. I put them on at bedtime and always fall asleep feeling happy.
Mosquitoes. 'Nuff said. Why must the south be so full of them?
Backstabbing. If you can't say it to someone's face, just don't say it all. That's been a motto I've tried to hold true to since my high school days. Fortunately, this is not something I have to deal with much (if at all) anymore, but talking behind someone's back is definitely a pet peeve of mine.
Cream and jelly filled donuts. Yuck.
Dog and cat hair in my home. Both of which I contend with daily. If anyone has foolproof hair management solutions for pets, I am all ears.
Self tanner. Do it. Hate it. But it's better than skin cancer.
Gyno visits. I mean, do I really need to go into why I dislike these yearly appointments?
Political divisiveness. I really just wish we could all get along. Have our differences, but respect them and find a way to work together regardless of those differences. It doesn't seem so hard. And yet...
Balsamic vinegar. Weird, I know. But true. There is a backstory to this, but that's for another day.
The nighttime bedtime routine - ie the face washing, teeth brushing, lotion applying, retainer fixing routine. Call me lazy, but sometimes I wish I could just roll into bed without worrying about any of that stuff. Sigh. Being a woman is a lot of work sometimes.
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for a fun intro to a favorite new store and a giveaway! This was originally scheduled for last week, but was rescheduled for tomorrow, so don't miss it!
