all you need is love!

Today has been full of packing. Packing, packing, packing. I know we aren't moving for over a month, but between working, commuting, and plans for the next three Saturdays, our time is limited. And I like packing while we are still really excited.

I'm taking a break right now.

During my break, I came across today's post by Fat Bridesmaid. She has a list of ten things she hates, and a link to the same meme at Adventures in BabyWearing. I decided to alter it a little, and I'm listing 10 things I LOVE. (And, you'll notice FB, my list of loves is similar to your list of hates!)

Food: I love tortillas. A burrito, a sandwich as a wrap, scrambled eggs and cheese in a tortilla, a slice of cheese folded into a tortilla and microwaved. Yum. Flour, wheat, corn, doesn't matter. Flat and round is all I need.

Fruit: I absolutely love oranges. You have to take time to eat them, be focused, not stick my thumb nail too far through the skin into the good part. Yum, oranges.

Veggies: Although I loved carrots cooked in honey and mustard, my favorite veggie is the sweet potato. I could eat them every day.

Celebrity/People: I used to really like Oprah, but then I realized that she likes herself a little too much. I love Rachael Ray. She's really close to being too chipper and obnoxious, and that endears her to me. She is comfortable with who she is and she made her dreams happen. And most of my cooking skills and comfort with experimenting in the kitchen is thanks to her.

Event/Situation/Incident: I love weddings. People I know, people on tv, A Wedding Story. Weddings pull me in and make me happy. The most recent one for us was Nathan's brother, Luke. (Notice Nathan still standing up there. Isn't he a cutie?

TV Shows/Movies: As embarrassed as I am to say this, my favorite show is What Not to Wear. I know I have so many cooking shows and HGTV shows and funny shows to choose from (like Arrested Development), but I love watching Clinton and Stacy tear people apart and then watching the poor, underfashioned person immerge as a self-confident and self-loving person. It's a transformation that I would love to have. But I don't think my current style is bad enough.

Music: One word: Nickel Creek.

Household Chores: I don't think I love any chore, but I don't despise laundry all that much.

Around the World: I love that some people have the ability and drive to make taking up for others their life's work. Whether it is building an orphanage, being a missionary, or working in a soup kitchen, every little bit helps to make the world better for someone else.

About Myself: I like my ability to make others see my perspective without being aggressive. I really like that I can do my (pretty tough) job well and feel like I have done some good. I love that I can listen to someone in a way that makes them feel heard. I love that I am motivated to make myself better.

What about you? I'm tagging some folks. We need more positivity around here!

Sounds like fun! I'm with you though, I'd rather list the things I love instead of the things I hate. I think I'll go do this now. :) Thanks Krissie!
