While looking around at various blogs, I noticed that a lot of people were doing simple pleasures or getting to know me A to Z lists. Well, I’m jumping on the bandwagon. Here we go…
A-Ab workouts. I love them! Call me crazy (my sister does!), but I love a good ab workout routine. My abdomen did amazing stretching to make room for and carry my little one for 9 months. Then, it kind of/sort of returned back to its original spot. It’s a work in progress right now, but I love it for what it can do.
B-Banana. My favorite fruit since birth just about. To top it off, it is also Holden’s fave too! He’s just starting on solids and absolutely loves bananas.
C-Christmas. Everyone who knows me knows I start the Christmas music the day before Thanksgiving. The tree is up immediately after T-giving. Christmas cards are practically a science, and I love listening to Bing Crosby croon the original Christmasy songs. I always play “Santa” and distribute gifts (in a creepily organized fashion) at my parents’ house. After all, my name does mean “Christmas Gift.”
D-Dark Chocolate. I love it. Can’t get enough of it. In fact, I consumed way too much today and gave myself a stomach ache which is very unfortunate when you’ve got a baby who is on the move and has no patience for your pain! Fave flavors are dark chocolate with dried cranberries and dark chocolate with ginger. Mmmmmm good!
E-Extra time in the Morning. I never seem to have enough time in the morning. I just want to sit around for a bit, and then get a move on! Muumuu is just icing on the cake.
F-Frozen Yougurt. My favorite spot is Skinny Dip. A must visit if your in the Hampton Roads area. I will not accept substitutions!
G-Gum for the gym. I have to have peppermint or spearmint gum for the gym. Don’t ask me why, but I find it motivating! LIke, that’s the symbol for “get your butt in gear!”
H-Hammock. I’ve had my hammock since my senior year of high school. Jake and his mama did a combo graduation gift and bought it for me along with a great stand.
Roscoe and Holdie are fans too!
I-Internet. I love to check out various factoids on the internet. We have a desktop for that very reason that I wouldn’t be able to stop if it wasn’t stuck in the back guest room.
J-Jake. Of course, the Mr. ❤
K-Kebabs. I love them but admit I make them way too much. I’ve recently converted my dad over to the kebab grilling dark side.
L-Library books. Virginia Beach has wonderful libraries! I get most of my books from there.
M-Massages. I love getting massage deals off Groupon, so I feel less guilty about indulging.
N-Necklace the Mr. gave me on our wedding day. It has my name, his name, and the year.
O-Oatmeal. I eat this almost everyday. It’s cheap, healthy and versatile. Gotta love it.
P-Picnics. At the beach, in a park, in my mother-in-law’s side yard…I will picnic anywhere!
Q-Quick grocery store trips without a baby. You moms know what I mean!
R-Roscoe. My sweet love!
S-Seashells. I love to collect them, collect pictures of them, just love them!
T-Tub time. Bath tubs are the bomb! The Mr. can tell how my day has gone. Quick shower=everything is A-OK. Tub time=Not a fab day! Tub time with Wine=Look out!
U-Unique restaurants that try different ingredients, food combinations. We went to STOVE for our 2 year celebration and loved it!
V-View from the Beach. I love to watch the Mr. and Holdie swimming.
W-Wedding Band. I find myself touching my wedding band/engagement ring constantly throughout the day. The symbolism of those rings is amazing. I dreamed of marrying my husband way back in 2001 after we had been dating for about a year. Things changed so much between then and now but not the thing that counts…love. Sappy love!
X-I’ve got no faves for this! I absolutely hate the dentist and X reminds me of dental X-rays! 😦
Y-Yogurt with oats and fruit. Overnight Oats: Put 1c. plain yogurt in 2c. glass contained. Put a little less than 1/2c. of oats on top. Then, fill the container full of frozen, mixed berries. Put in refrig overnight. Next day, dump in big bowl. Stir. Shake a bit of cinnamon and drizzle honey. Yumminess for sure!
Z-Zales Aquamarine Ring. The Mr. gave me Holdie’s birthstone on a white gold ring as a present when he was born (I will not say p*sh present, because it brings ick images to mind. You know what I mean!).
That’s it! Me A to Z
