Writer's Workshop / My favorite things

Welcome to Mama Kat's writer's workshop. My choice this week is 7 of my favorite things. Believe it or not, this was hard for me. Like most of you, I'm sure, as a mom your favorite things are put on the back, it took me a while to come up with my list ...
I LOVE the smell of Marc Jacob's Daisy! John got this for me last year for my birthday.

I love any and everything flip flops! My favorite pair at the moment is these lovely zebra print ones! Aren't they cute!!

It doesn't get any better than a $1 movie from Redbox - some popcorn and Diet Dr. Pepper...

Ok, I told you this was hard for me so I'm going to cheat ( a little) - right now blogging is probably my MOST favorite pass time. So, the next 4 are my top 4 favorite blogs - and it's HARD to narrow it down to 4...

Stanton's Journey to Adoption - She's the reason I even started a blog

I'm a Real Life mom

Mommy Needs Coffee!

Life as we know it

Pray for Stellen

It's amazing how easy it is to forget these people are strangers... I read your blogs, laugh with you and cry with you. I feel like I know you and yet we've never met... so this morning my heart hurts for Jennifer and her family. Please pray for sweet Stellen.

I'm giddy about...

I'm participating in Mama Kat's writer's workshop this week, the assignment I chose - What are you giddy about? Inspired by Heather.
I am giddy about a lot of things. It doesn't take much to excite me...
I am giddy about triple coupon day at the grocery store, the new Asian spicy chicken at Wendy's. It is absolutely delicious! My absolute favorite thing right now, that gets me all excited inside - something to really get giddy about....
It's Craigslist's free postings. You know where people post there old junk that they can't stand anymore, rather than sale it for cheap, would just as soon give it away than fool with it. Yep, your trash may be my long awaited for treasure. Sure I check Craigslist ten times a day and maybe it'll take me two months to see that super find that you've posted for free (just for me!)
and yes, I may drive 30 miles down the road just to get my new found prize - oh but it was freeeee!!

Marriage Counselling

Well, John is back. We've decided to go to marriage counselling. I hope and pray for our sakes and our children's sake that this works. It's going to be hard for me. I've got a little bit of a complex about sitting in front of a stranger - divulging all of my inner most thoughts and them judging guiding me on how to fix it - but for my family, I would do anything :)

3 things you did not know about me

I am participating in Mama Kat's writers workshop. I love her blog, you must go by and check it out!
1. I did not get my license until I was almost 19. In our state you could get them at 15 but I was very sheltered when it came to it kind of took me a while... Did you know that driving on the wrong side of the road is automatic failure?? Nothin' gets by me, so it only took me ONE time to figure that one out! I tried for my license 5 different times and yep 6th time is a charm! To really throw irony in there, I somehow landed a job as a Fleet Safety Administrator for CDL drivers at a local company to ensure they were driving safely and up to DOT standards... Just to let you know, this was many years later and I had matured at this point and did a great job - ya'll are all safe out there!
2. I love - LOVE chicken. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch & supper, don't even mind a little chicken nugget for a snack in between. Yes, I'm waiting on feathers to grow.
3. I find humor in everything. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. You tell a joke, I laugh. You fall, I laugh (secretly, in my head - so not to hurt your feelings) Weddings, funerals, sickness, health - all of it, not AT them just during them. I find something humorous in it, whether it's - it took Mrs. Daisy dying before they could finally get the blue out of her hair or it's OK ya'll that I had the flu for 12 days, almost died. I lost 10 lbs and look great now...I'm even thinking of contracting a tapeworm to finish off the last few pounds...I don't know why. Sick and twisted? Yes, but it's how I cope. OK.

What do Jessica Simpson and I have in common??

Well, besides being dumped the day before your birthday and having to smile about it and act like everything is okay...unfortunately nothing...

I guess technically, I wasn't dumped...but my husband did leave and we are on a trial separation...whatever in the heck that's suppose to prove...

So, it's my birthday and I'll cry if I want too - and I have. It hurts. I am not for divorce and certainly DO NOT want to put my children through this but never the less here I am.

I love John with all my heart. We have been married for almost 14 years, grew up together. I've made him my everything and so today I feel lost, hurt and alone...

Blog Hop

This is the girls, very rarely do they get along and it's hard to get a picture of both of them together (smiling)

***Hope this works...this is my first blog hop. This week, on TUESDAY, 7/7/09, the theme is A FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPH. Post up one of your favorite photographs and a caption that tells the audience about it. Here is a sample: ***

I'm still working on how to add the list...?? I have to be missing something, I don't think it's suppose to be this hard???
