Things That I Love...

This morning, I was wandering over in Tammy's neck of the woods at Country Girl At Home. And she had such a fun post!! She had joined in a "Things That I Love" game and she had been assigned the letter "H". She came up with some really great answers. She also said that if anybody would like to join in, that she would assign each of them a letter. So, I decided to join in all the fun and Tammy assigned me the letter "B". So, if you feel like having a little fun, head on over and I am sure she will assign you one as well.

Let's see, 10 Things That I Love that begin with the letter "B"....

1)Both Of My Children
I LOVE my kids more than ANYTHING!! Nuff said...

2)"Big Daddy"
"Big Daddy" have been married since I was 18 and he was 19. We have been thru SO much together. Both good times and bad. But definitely more good than bad. He is my BFF and I love him very much!! Even though we got married young, we both knew at a young age that we were made for one another. He makes me laugh and smile and mad all at the same time. He KNOWS me!! Sometimes, better than I know myself. He supports me in all that I do. And most of all he loves me and in this great big scary world, that's EVERYTHING!!

3)Being At Home
I LOVE this more than anything!! I am the biggest homebody you could meet. Especially, this time of the year when it is snowy and cold. BUURRR!! Nothing makes me more happy then being at home with my family, snuggling up playing a game or watching a good movie or just being at home spending good QT together!!

4)Banana Splits

I love baskets of all shapes and sizes. I think they are a very pretty way to store everyday items.

Who DOESN'T love babies!?!?!?

7)Being A Mom
This one has to be my GREATEST joy!! I seriously think this was what I was put on this earth for. I absolutely LOVE my kids!! And I absolutely LOVE being a Mom!! And may I add the fact that I have some pretty great kids. "Miss Priss" will be 18 in September and will going away to college in the Fall. And I have to admit, my heart aches EVERY.SINGLE.TIME I even think about it. And "Muscles" will be turning 16 in July and will be getting ready to drive. Gosh, where does the time go?!?!? Wasn't it just yesterday that they were babies!! Ok, now I am getting ready to cry!!

Ok, this one is a newer LOVE addiction. But in the short time I have been blogging. I have not only found so much inspiration. Not only with recipes, crafts and home decor. But just inspiration in general. Between the stories of joy and heartache we each have shared. It makes me feel that we aren't alone in this journey we all call being a Wife and/or Mother!! And that there is ALWAYS somebody that will understand what we are each going thru!!

This past summer my family took our first "real" family vacation to Hilton Head Island, SC and we had the BEST time!! Definitely made some lifetime memories!!

10)Bubble Baths
Bubble baths are my way of relaxation!! Whether I am not feeling well or just plain old stressed out. A good old bubble bath always seems to take my troubles away!!

Hi Carrie,

I read your post late last night and didn't take the time to respond right then...sorry about that!

I am so glad to know that you and I have found each other as we'll both be experiencing sending our daughters off to college soon. Brittany will be 17 in a few days and everytime I think about her going away to school next year, my heart breaks into a million little pieces. How will we ever survive?

I really enjoyed reading your have a beautiful family!!!
