Things I Love

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, here are 25 things (not people) that I love -
in no specific order:

  1. Hot, hot, melt the skin off your back showers.
  2. Pizza - seriously, I could eat it at least twice a week, every week.
  3. Baking bread.
  4. Having a clean home - I can't truly relax if my house is a mess.
  5. ALL four seasons - call me crazy, but it makes me so happy right now to look out my window and see the snow falling.
  6. Fruit - except cantaloupe. Peaches and oranges are tied for 1st.
  7. A girls' night out.
  8. Movies that make me cry.
  9. Pottery - even though I don't get to do it nowadays. There is nothing more relaxing and therapeutic. Someday I will have my own wheel...someday.
  10. Holding one of my babies while they sleep.
  11. Planning a party.
  12. My electric blanket - while I do love all four seasons, I don't like being cold.
  13. Pedicures.
  14. THE mountains - meaning my Utah mountains, the ones I have looked at almost every day for almost 30 years.
  15. A clean car - it was ALWAYS clean before I had kids.
  16. Sleep.
  17. Family vacations
  18. Laughing until it hurts.
  19. Chillin' around a campfire, roasting a mellow.
  20. Candy - I once went for 3 1/2 years without any...what was I thinking?!
  21. Reading a good book.
  22. Plays.
  23. Fresh flowers - but not on Valentine's Day; too much $$$.
  24. Sunsets - there is nothing better.
  25. Handmade gifts - both the ones I have given away and the ones I have recieved. Priceless.
Happy ♥ Day everyone! Spread a little love, give someone a hug, or simply enjoy a few of the things that you love most.

that was a great read...however, I'm still puzzled over why you abstained from candy for that long. I'm glad you have seen the light once again :)

Your number 1 is my number 1! There is NOTHING better than melting your skin off, I like my baths that way too-where it hurts to step in, lol! I also agree with laughing til it hurts. Thanks Jamie and I hope you had a great Valentines~miss you!

I love all those things too... what a great list! And why is it that our cars can't stay clean anymore??? It drives me crazy!

Ashley Rae said...

Aw, I love your loves. Very good list. I love nearly everything on there as well :)

You need to do pottery again! You are so talented with that...

3 1/2 years without candy? Wow. I am totally impressed.

Melissa said...

I love mountains, and I love handmade gifts.

I support your decision to go private, Jamie, but I just realized that I don't get updates on google reader now. Can you confirm this? Ah well, I'll just have to pop in on my own accord. Considering you have children, I think you made the right decision.

Monica said...

Great list Jame. We have a lot in common, besides the clean car thing. I'm not very good at that. Great list. Love ya!

All About M.E.('s) said...

Nice list.

Now, about the weird Brian Smiley guy: If I found another Mindy Eyre who had a blog and had a daughter named Madi or Maya I would TOTALLY stalk her blog.

That being said...there is no way in H-E-double that I would add the other B.S. to my private list.

You are too cute! It was so good to see you, wish it was more often! We seriously {♥} our Valentine's pillow and Addi has claimed all the hairbows for herself!
