100 things I love

I am going to attempt this.  Feeling kinda blah tonight with Husband back to work and the sun leaving us so early.  So here goes! (the order of these does not reflect how much I love them.  My brain is random and so is this list)


  1. Husband
  2. God
  3. Paige my dog
  4. my Christmas tree
  5. the lights around my office window
  6. music
  7. Mexican food
  8. my iPhone
  9. travelling
  10. Atlantis Paradise Resort
  11. Italian food
  12. cheeseburgers
  13. ice tea

  18. spontaneous lunches with good friends
  19. girls days

  28. cuddles
  29. hugs
  30. kisses
  31. the way my nieces talk to me in ridiculous accents
  32. my grandma and her cookie recipes

  34. my new necklace (previously posted)
  35. new hair colours
  36. rearranging furniture
  37. Muttart Conservatory and their gardens
  38. Ultimate Leadership.  Have gone twice and want to go again soooooo bad

  40. wrastling (as Husband calls it) with the boy
  41. having the giggles
  42. music concerts
  43. any good production.  Cirque de Soleil, Symphony Orchestra, etc.
  44. the dragon flies on my bedroom wall
  45. painting.  Love to see the change of before and after
  46. color.  My last house had 17 colours in it.  It was amazing.
  47. my dad.  He rocks.
  48. facebook.  I know.  Kinda lame, but I love the reconnecting with friends
  49. challenges.  This whole festival thing I am doing.  The insanity of it all.
  50. Cooking.  Love it.  Especially for people! Don't do it much when I am alone.

Ok.  I seriously need a break.  Really Dawn? 100 things? I know there are more.  Let my brain think for a minute.  So, how are you? I am pretty good.  This time of year is hard.  I hate that the sun came out after I left for work and it set before I was home! The days are under 8 hours of daylight right now and I am finding it hard this year.  Who knew!

Alright, back to the show.

  1. My new coconut scented deodorant
  2. people who call me on my crap
  3. the first sign of green in spring
  4. the smell of lilacs
  5. beautiful flowers
  6. waterfalls
  7. my beautiful red shoes (John Fluevog, see above)
  8. Chris Tomlin music
  9. having a few people in my life that KNOW me.  Not just know me, but KNOW.  You know what I am saying???
  10. palm trees
  11. exploring cultures of other countries.  I find it extremely intriguing
  12. banana bread
  13. clean sheets
  14. new socks

  42. Buying gifts for people when they don't expect them.
  43. not caring about punctuation or editing on my blog :)
  44. mini cheesecakes
  45. CSI style shows.  I swear I have seen at least 800 different ways to kill someone.  And then how to get caught! And yet I continue to watch them.
  46. my smile.  This has taken a lot but I think it is pretty ok.
  47. my eyes.  I think they are really the window to my soul.  Get to know me? You can see everything in my eyes

Go you. That's some list. I'm jealous of your Keurig. We've been eyeballing one for a month or so now. This was a good idea, I feel a bit blah in this stupid winter always overcast weather too.
