I saw this over on Sizzle's site and it looked like a lot of fun, so I thought I'd play along. So, without further ado: ten things I love that start with the letter "C".
If I thought I liked cuddling before I got to cuddle with a baby every day, I was wrong. Although I still love a good cuddle from my husband, my daily cuddle session with Gabbie right when we get home from work/school is my favorite part of day. I sometimes even duck out of work early so that we can start cuddling even earlier than usual. It's that awesome.
I'm a milk chocolate fan, but any kind will do. Especially if it's in brownie form. Yum!
Any kind will do, thanks. Jonniker recently asked in a post if you had a house cheese growing up, and ours was (probably embarrassingly) Velveeta. But if you asked me now, we don't have anything close to one house cheese, we have several: cheddar, feta, fresh mozzarella, gouda, havarti, and the list goes on.
4. Crafting (especially Crocheting)
I frequently need a creative outlet, and when I do pretty much any kind of craft will do. For the past couple of years it's mostly been knitting and crocheting. I love the feel of creating a garment or item out of a string. It's amazing to me.
Cooking is my all-the-time creative outlet. I read somewhere once that most American families have about 9 or 10 meals that they cycle through repeatedly. We are not like most American families then, because we are always trying new things. I have a whole bookshelf full of cookbooks, and I use them all the time. I just made the best cupcakes the other night out of one of them - it will now be my go-to cupcake recipe. Until I see another yummy-looking recipe somewhere else that is. I have recipe ADD.
6. My new Computer
Aaron got me a new iMac for Christmas and we're constantly fighting over whose turn it is to use it. It's still all shiny and new and not clogged up with a million files and programs. I love it.
Rather, Settlers of Catan . We're big board game geeks around here, and this one is our absolute favorite. It gets very competitive, and people have known to get fairly angry when their plans get ruined by someone else's play therefore causing us to have to take a day-long break between games, but it's totally worth it.
I'm a huge fan of the Christmas season, including and especially Christmas music and movies. Aaron has limited me to those two things between Thanksgiving and New Year's day, only, but I can occasionally convince him to watch Elf in the middle of the summer.
Well, pretty much any wine actually, but nothing beats a nice, chilled white on a warm summer evening. Man, I can't wait for summer. Even spring would be great, thanks.
Growing up I colored all the time. I had shelves of coloring books that were very carefully filled in using my box of 64 Crayolas; I got a new box every Christmas in my stocking. I've been known to color even now when I get the chance, and I can't wait until Gabbie's old enough to color so that I have a better excuse for buying a coloring book.
