So, if I was to put an ad out for myself, you know kind of like "If you like pina colada's, and getting caught in the rain" this is about how I imagine it would sound.....
You wanna know what my favorite things are?? Oh my, the list is long, because there are many things that this momma is passionate about. **First of all please note, my ad will not list, God, my husband, my children, or red lipstick, these are a given of course**
FALL....Yes, the season of Fall. I can think of no other season, as far as weather that gets me goin'. I adore the changing leaves, the crispness in the air, the football on the t.v., and chili bubbling on the stove. I actually have renewed energy in fall, I bounce around like Tigger, and have a desire to be outdoors all the time. I want to hit festivals, and pick pumpkins, drink cider, and visit Gatlinburg. I can think of nothing quite as depressing as living in a climate that never changed, no change of season. I need the change, and I really need FALL.
CHRISTMAS.....I'm sure most people "love" Christmas, unless you're a scrooge of course, but for me, it really does make me fall in love all over again, every single year. I think this goes back to being a kid. My mom did a fabulous job at Christmas, it really was like a fairy tale, so I just have general fuzzy feelings about the holiday. Of course, being a grown up, well, it's a little less special isn't it?? Now we have to pay for it, do all the work, and are in general more stressed, but all that aside, I still passionately LOVE it. It's all I can do, to wait to start playing Christmas carols, until after Halloween. I want my tree up in early November, and I will suck every last drop out of that glorious time. Ahhhhhh, CHRISTMAS.
MUSIC....OMG, where do I start??? My music determines my mood, or maybe it's my mood that determines my music? Personally, I think I would die a slow death without my music. How does a person not enjoy music?? There are my praise music days, my rock days, my pop days, and even my ghetto days, now that's hilarious, watching my white self get down like a thug. I can hear a song, and instantly be transported to a memory. All of a sudden I'm 16 and it's summer, and life is carefree, or it's the years of dating Rico, or being a new mommy. Okay, someone please hand me my I-pod!!! Music moves my soul and yes my boo-tay. Oh sweet, MUSIC.
DANCING...Since, I was a youngin', I have loved dancing. I always wished I had been given dance lessons, however, through years of dancing to my boom box, I seemed to teach myself.
I just love to shake it, move it, groove it and get down. That was one of the things that attracted me to Paul, his love to dance and get down, and of course you will find us on many occasions having a dance party with the kids. I really hope I never outgrow my need to move, so just like Kevin Bacon in Footloose......"Let's Dance"
GLEE.....So, take my two above, MUSIC AND DANCE and combine them into a t.v. show and kids you have me a new love. I heard all the rumbles about the show, but didn't think much of it, then one day I stumbled upon it, and well I fell for it, hard!! I ADORE the music, I mean absolutely love it. Then you add the dancing and the most important WILL SCHUESTER, seriously, I'm beginning to daydream as I write this.....OH MY GLEE
TWILIGHT.....not gonna lie, I'm a little sheepish to admit this one, I mean what kind of band wagoner am I??? I also only started these books a mere few weeks ago, however, you know when you've fallen in love, right?!?! Just like Edward knew right away for Bella, I knew right away that these books had me. Seriously, what a love story. The idea that someone would fight their very being, just to be with the one they loved. Or that after all those years, only one woman ever caught Edwards heart, sigghhhh. Listen girls, don't get any ideas about marrying Edward, I will be his wife, if you step in my way I will send the werewolves after you ;)......Ahhhh, Twilight
FOOD....I just adore food. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a love of food, but I cannot rightly talk about myself and not mention my love of food......Ohhhh yum-o grub
Lastly no list of my favorite things cannot include....
SHOPPING....I do believe in the love of shopping. Shallow and empty? Maybe. However, I don't care. I love shopping for the kids, for others, the house, and who are we kidding, for myself. I mean, someone sign me up for some cute shoe shopping alone and I will jump for joy. Target, Ann Taylor, Dillards, Pottery Barn, oh my heart is beginning to race......LETS SHOP!!!!
So, "there are a few of my favorite things" and what makes ginmommy tick. ;)
