These are a few of my favorite things

Kind Of.
Heather gave me a list to do, a list of 10 of my favorite things starting with G. She did not force this on me, I requested it, but me being the complete slacker and procrastinator that I am, I put it off.. for what? A week. Maybe more. But to my credit, I have been thinking of my fav G's all along the way. Sooo here we go...

1. Grandparents
Who doesn't love their grandparents?? Both of my grandfathers have passed away, both while I was in high school. There will always be times that a wave of sadness rushes over me whether it be when I see pictures or during holidays (especially Christmas) but they've left me with lots of great memories. I do still have both of my grandmothers, which I'm thankful for. Neither one live close to me (one in Mass, one in MD) but they are only a phone call away. And they get so so happy over just a little 5 minute conversation.

2. Great Food
I LOVE me so great food! I try to be careful with it, I really do. But it all boils down to the fact that I just love food. I'll be making some much needed changes though. Really soon.

3. Grapes
Ok.. this wouldn't normally make my list of favorites. But they are one of my favorite fruits so i went with it!

4. Gas Prices
Woooohooooo! They are so cheap right now. I love the fact that I filled up my Santa Fe for $13 the other day. I paid $1.39 per gallon!!! Can't beat that!

5. Giggles
I love the sound of laughter. Especially that full blown, loud laughter that comes from deep down in the heart. Makes me smile all the time.

6. Gifts
I love getting and receiving to be honest. I get much more excited to give them though. I usually can't contain myself and usually give away the surprise before I can actually give the present. Now if I just had more money to do it more often...

7. God
Wow. I've been thinking so much I almost missed an obvious one. Speaking of the big man.. I've just started a new book that I think is going to be amazing! The Shack. I've heard great things about it and I'm sure I'll be dedicating a few posts to it.. or at least bringing it up quite often.

That's it. I'm cheating. I can't possible think of 3 more. I'm sure i'm missing obvious choices, but I just don't have it in me! And to think I could have gotten the letter Z or X!!!
If anyone else would like to try and tackle this little game, let me know. I don't have a son, but I'll make hub pick a letter out for you!

Good job on your list!! (Sort of.) You almost made it!! :) I forgive you for cheating! And I am soooo loving gas prices right now. I won't get too comfortable though, because I'm sure they won't stay low long.
Anyway, thanks for the birthday wishes. It's the 19th. Kevin's is exactly two weeks before mine, so we usually celebrate together on the weekend in between.
Also- lovin the Christmas background. Very festive! :)
