~Being the Mother of a boy, last from son up...to son down~

I received this cute award form Marlessa over @ Southern Loves.{thanks girlie} it has been a a while since I have received one so I am tickled pink to know that a new reader/follower really loves ME! Please head on over to her blog and say hello. She has the two cutest kiddo's(her link is on my sidebar).
So to play along I have to tell you 10 things that I love...just 10? Whew this maybe be harder than I thought????

1. God- first and foremost. He has saved my soul and blessed my life many times over.Everything I am I owe to him and I stand in aw of his beauty and miracles everyday! Oh and God...I know you have a sense of humor too{wink, wink}

2. My husband- he is the love of my life. We will soon celebrate our 15 year anniversary and I am so excited! The years have not all been easy ones and we have spend alot of time apart due to his job(like now!) but I know in my heart that everything he does is to make life better for Kyle & I. He always puts us first in everything he does and I am so proud to be his wife.

3. My Bubba- yes, my only child. He is the smile, laughter and chaos that makes my world go round. He is all sweetness, good ole' country redneck and mud rolled into one package. He makes me laugh everyday with his crazy antics and silly looks. I have said this before and I will say it until the day I take my last breath....."he is my grand finale"

4. My family- In my opinion I have the best in the world...but I guess we all say that huh? But it's true. I am the only person in my family that does not live in Kentucky. At times in breaks my heart to not be with them. One of the first things I told Chris when we got married and he swept me away to Georgia was, " don't EVER complain about how high the phone bill is cause I'm gonna talk to my momma!"....and you know what? He never has!(and trust before cell phones came along...it was HIGH!!!!!). Sorry, I guess I got off track! Anyhow. My family is always there for me and even though they are far away they make time to still be apart of my life everyday and I love them for that.

5. My friends- yep, can't forget them! I have the greatest friends. I have old friends who have been around since what seems like caveman days like "my Heather" and then I have friends who have been around a few years like " Ashley, Marsha and Meg"...and then there are the wonderful friends I will never meet which are you guys! Each one is special in there own way to me and you know what they say..."a girl can never have too many friends!"

6. The beach- if you have even looked at my blog layout you can tell that I love the beach. We try and head over for a day of sunning at least twice a month. I love only living 45 minutes away from the coast. It is wonderful to able to layout out all day and still get home In time to throw some steaks on the grill for supper....does it get any better than that?....I think not!

7. Ice Cream-okay this one right here is a given. If you have been a loyal follower for any length of time you know how much I LOVE ice cream. I really should be in therapy for this addiction, or maybe even start my own support group. I love it, can't live a day without it. It can be in a cup, cone, bowl, shake...whatever.....I don't care as long as it is ALL MINE! And I swear you can come to my house on ant day and open my fridge and there will be at least 4 half gallons staring back at you...SEEE...do you see how tempting that is....curse that ice cream!

8. Purses-some women have a shoe fetish, for some it is makeup or pricey purfume...me...not so much. I am addicted to purses. I bet I have 60 in my closet right now and they are all organized by color....sad I know.

9. Black Friday-okay, I know you think I am a tad strange now but I guess I am. I love Black Friday shopping. It is like a huge rush for me. I get the newspaper bright and early on Thanksgiving morning(forget putting Tom in the oven I gotta get my game plan together). I sit down and get in deep thought...plotting...planning...replanning. Then get on the phone with the girls that shop with me and we set times and places to me up. It is one of the most fun days pf the year for me. We get up early, freeze waiting in line, shop, laugh, eat, shop some more, stop for ice cream(see here we go again with that addiction)and shop some more. We have bought so much stuff before that we could not see out of the back of the Suburban....we are sad, sad women folks!

10. Monograms- yep, I do....it is almost to the point of extreme! I have my monogram stickers on my truck, monogrammed necklace, makeup bag, purse, door mat, a garden flag, note pads, mouse pad, lunch tote and even monogrammed soap(yep, no joke!)not with just an "O" either but with all 3 initials! I say a girl can never have to many things monogrammed but do you know how hard it is to find stuff with a "T" on it...just try it and let me know how that works out for ya!

You're welcome, girl!! Congrats to you and your husband, and I am right there with you on black Friday, without the kids, of course!! ;o)

Tara said...

Thank you for the award. It is a new one for me!! Now I know why you specifically mentioned going to Chinatown:-D I do NOT do Black Friday for the bargains or thrill of it. My sleep is more important and my saying is that if I have to get up at 3am to get a bargain, then I didn't need it anyway. More power to ya!!

Happy Mother's Day to you!!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Thank you! I could tell FOR SURE that this was in no particular order, because otherwise? I'd have been first, right? Right!? Thanks!!

Bridget said...

Awww, thank you!!! I enjoyed reading the ten things you love! Have a super weekend with your guys! :D

Mary said...

Wow thank you the award! That is so nice of you. You know I think I have only gotten one other award before. So I have to be honest and say I am very excited. :) Is it weird if I were to give it back to you? haha

Thanks Trish! And thank you for the great comments you leave on the blog. I love them!

Cathy said...

congrats on your new award, you deserve it. By the way, your #10 cracked me up. Somehow I misread it and thought you said mamograms, not monograms. Wow!!! I thought this sure is strange that she loves mamograms so much! ;-)

Jenna said...

Thanks!! I LOOOOOVE Ice Cream too!!! if you haven't tried Breyers Ice cream You HAVE to!! I discovered it when I went to OHIO and apperently Kroger carries it also...I wanted to eat it for every meal!!

Jewls said...

Happy Mother's Day! Love your quote at the top! :)

Brooke said...

Great list! I love my son, family, friends, ice cream and monograms too! I hope you have a great Mother's Day weekend!

Tamela said...

Oh I know how hard it is to find T monograms! Its like they forgot that letter even existed. Remember when they came out with those purses that had the one letter on them? I looked and looked for days to find one, never could. Then one day the guy I was dating at the time shows up with one for my birthday. I was elated!!

Angie said...

Great list!! Thank you so much for passing it on!! ;) I suppose I really should work on a blog button huh?? ;)

Kim said...

Congrats on the award! And almost 15 years of marriage! Impressive! On both counts!

And I love Black Friday shopping too!
