The Letter "B"

Thanks to Janiece who got me hooked up on this little game when I should be working!!

Here are the rules…If you want to play, leave a comment on this post letting me know, and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on!

My letter is "B".

My BOY!! Anyone who reads my blog knows that I'm crazy, crazy over my boy, Josh. He is one of the best things that ever happened in my life and he has changed my life in ways I would have never imagined. Thanks to him, I know what a safety is in football.

My BABY!!! And, another little person I'm crazy, crazy over is my baby Ellie!! What a blessing she is and she was most certainly worth the wait. Every day I fall more deeply in love with her.

The BIBLE!! The book that is timeless and on which I base the life I lead. God's word is such a wonderful blessing to me.

Ok... this is hard or I'm tired.

BLOGGING. This has opened my life to so many new friends and allows me to pursue a passion I thought was lost -- my love of writing. It's like scrapbooking instantly -- and with no glue dots to stick to you.

BEAR -- Our big ole' fat dog that thinks I'm the coolest thing in the world. I LOVE that big lug.

Sleep, chocolate, my husband, my extended family ... oh, see I'm off task again and none of thees fit my "B" list).

Bowling - no; bratwurst - no; brains (well, it's good to have them) - no; balloons - no; bologne - no; Bishkek -- well, a little, but not LOVE like the others; blue - no; bling -- yeah!; brown -- yeah; oooh... I got one ....

BROWNIES -- it has my favorite things, sugar and chocolate!

Back to that stream of consciousness stuff: bricks - no; banks - no; Bishkek -- a nice place to visit and all; oooh... another one . . .

BARGAINS -- I get pretty darned excited about a good bargain, which is why my favorite stores are places like Big Lots, Tuesday Morning and TJ Maxx. I'm also really fond of Goodwill and consignment stores. It's such a rush to find a great deal!!

Bags -- useful, but not really exciting; blood - nope!! not at all; birds - nah; botox - not interested; birthdays -- only if it's someone else's and I get to eat cake; bottles - got enough of that going on right now; ahh.....

BREAD - I am especially fond of garlic bread, everything bagels, buttered toast, rolls, biscuits -- oh, you know -- all kinds of BREAD!!!

Thinking again: Brad Pitt -- no, I'm more of a Brad Paisley kind of girl; Barack -- not going there; budgets - now there is a fun concept; oh, I've got a great one...

BOOKS -- I love the smell of a bookstore or library. I love the quiet one finds there. I am in LOVE with books. I could spend an entire day curled up reading a good book. Well, I can't now as there is no time, but I could in my past. I love the adventures I've gone on through books. I love the thinking that goes on when I read. I cannot bring myself to dog ear the pages of a book or to write in it. I remove the dust jackets on hardback books before reading them -- something I've noticed Josh beginning to do.

BED -- I LOVE to sleep. In fact I should be doing it now. And where do I sleep -- in the bed, of course. I'm particularly fond of very soft beds with down comforters and big fluffy pillows. In fact, that reminds me, I'm sleepy. I'm off to bed.

Fun! I think the B turned out pretty good for you. I'm all for the bed thing--there's nothing quite as comfy as my bed!

Oh, okay...I can't turn down an opportunity to write something and pretend like others care enough to read it :)
