I was tagged by the awesomeness that I call Raven. She is a fellow Minnesotan and even though (of course) I appreciate being tagged, I don’t really get into the whole award/tagging kind of thing. However, I am breaking my own rule because I thought this one was unique.
The reason I love 4 is just because it’s a great number. Not too big, not too small, no one is left out, but also because my husband’s birthday is on the 4th, so that’s a pretty great reason to love the number 4 because I love everything Josh.
Four Places I Go
Jo Anne Fabrics, especially when Josh comes and helps me pick out yarn colors he likes for me to knit with–he has an amazing eye for colors.
Family’s Houses (I’m so lucky to live near Josh’s parents, Josh’s sister & family, and my mom)
I like driving-when I just need some time to myself or need to get out of the house. I have my favorite roads and I just love to drive and listen to music. Both my parents were semi truck drivers at one time, so I think it’s in my blood.
Places with Finn-we have a nature center in our town as well as a little zoo, it is so much fun to take Finn there. In the cities we took him up to the Children’s Museum the other day and it was the best thing in my life to see his face light up as he saw each new exhibit.
And one more…anywhere with books and kids (especially if it has to do with learning…but anywhere there are kids…there is learning happening).
Four Smells I Love
Josh- he almost always smells so good. When I’m feeling blue I’ll cuddle up with him or find a shirt he wore that I haven’t washed yet to wear. Always makes me happy.
Freshly mowed grass and rain.
My mother-in-law’s house. She makes a gourmet meal EVERY night and whenever I walk into the house, it always smells SO YUMMY!
Four Favorite TV Shows
Only 4? Didn’t you mean 404? Ok, fine. These are the ones that I am obsessed with at the moment.
Survivor-I can’t wait until Wednesday nights. This season is the BEST. I have a crush on Rob and Phillip is the most entertaining person EVER. I think maybe he’s lying about being in the FBI, I just couldn’t see him doing that.
Intervention-I have began watching all the old season’s on Netflix. Lots of times it’s SO SAD. I can only watch some of them (really just the one’s that are addicted to drugs and alcohol-I can’t watch people with eating disorders or those that cut). I don’t enjoy watching people in such immense pain so I was trying to figure out why I liked to show. I think I sympathize with them so much and those that are affected. Especially when there are kids involved, I really just want to hug them until the pain goes away. I am also always really fascinated by the question WHY. Why do these people choose this path?
Jersey Shore-guilty pleasure–please don’t judge me.
Four Favorite Movies
This is hard.
A Walk to Remember
Bridget Jone’s Diary
Pirates of the Caribbean
Find a small or big way to make someone’s day-extending a helping hand gives you more than keeping it for yourself
Replace judgment with compassion and empathy–if everyone did this it would make a world of difference
For those that you love, tell them often and mean it. For your children-what they want and need more than anything is for your eyes to light up when you see them.
Do something that you love each day. Even if it’s just for 5 minutes–you deserve it!
And one more-think of something you are grateful for everyday. We will focus on something, so let’s make it positive instead of negative because we all have so many amazing gifts in our life.
