Things I love...

It seems that when I am not blogging/writing, I have loads of ideas and things I want to talk about.  But, when I start up a blog, I have nothing...zilch, nada.  Oh well.  And so it goes, here is something to hopefully get me started blogging/writing once again.

There are things I really, really love and I thought I'd share them with you.  But, let's keep it real.  No one really even reads my blog and as I have mentioned before (I think), this blog is mainly a time capsule of sorts.  So that many years from now my kids and I can look back and see exactly what mommy was thinking on oh, let's say April 26, 2012?

Things I Love:

1.  My mom's sweet buttery cornbread recipe!  I mean, this stuff is delicious and dangerous at the same time.  It must be cooked in a cast iron skillet and I promise to share the recipe with you soon.  I need to remember to take a good picture of it BEFORE I eat it!  On a side note, I just pilfered-stole-swiped-"borrowed" my mom's 30+ year old cast iron skillet.  Hi mom!

2.  Vinegar, baking soda, peroxide and other natural, non-toxic ingredients that I can use to clean my home instead of commercially made cleaners.  I will not go into mind boggling detail here, because you can read about that over at one of my favorite blogs, Like A Mustard Seed.  She is amazing, she is Christian, and she is one smart lady!

3.  Eating popcorn and making up silly words and songs with my kids.  We made a song titled "My Butt Cheeks Smell Like Baby Wipes."  Singing this song makes us laugh every single time!  My husband even has the guitar and drums figured out.  If you were wondering, I'm on lead vocals.  And if that made you wonder more, no, I cannot sing.

4.  Figuring out fattening delicious things to cook and eat at grandma's house on Friday nights.  This is designated grandma time and rarely gets canceled or rescheduled.  I don't know how much longer I will have with my mom (wait, don't worry she's healthy) or anyone for that matter, so spending Friday evenings with her is our little time that is set aside, simply.  No frills, no fuss, no muss.  These also happen to be the nights my son is allowed to play the Wii with no time restriction, my daughter can watch The Muppets as many times as she likes, and baths are optional.  Don't hate.

In the five minutes it took me to write this post, I had fun!  So, what are the things you love and look forward to doing?
