I had seen this post a few times on blogs I stalk read so when Tiburon posted it I asked her to assign me a letter.
The rules say you are supposed to come up with 10 things you love that start with your letter. But Tiburon is a rebel and she rarely follows the rules (her words not mine). So she did 10 things she DIDN'T love. Now I'm not necessarily a rule breaker, I like to just tweak the rules a little, so they are to my liking.
So today it's all about the letter "S" and you may or may not get 10 things and I may or may not like them. Cause that's how I roll.

Sarcasm It's really all I've ever known. I have the funniest and most sarcastic sisters. My husband is definately blessed with the gift of sarcasm. My poor kids are exhibiting signs of the disorder gift as well. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Spring I love spring. Just after we built our house I planted a bunch of bulbs in my flowerbeds. I love that the flowers just show up every spring, without any effort on my part. I love to see the world come alive again with buds and blossoms and little hints that warm weather is just around the corner.
Something else about spring that I am learning to love live with (because it's not going away) is baseball. 3 boys all playing on "comp" teams makes for one BUSY family.

Shopping I like to shop. (who doesn't?)

Saving Money I said I like to shop. I didn't say I like to pay full price. I LOVE a bargain! It's like some sort of natural high. I don't remember the last time I paid full price for clothes or shoes. I just can't do it. I walk into a store and head straight to the back for the sale racks! (Some call it cheap. I call it thrifty!) I'm trying to learn how to do the same with groceries.


September I like September because ALL the most awesome people were born in September. Like me. I was born on my Grandma's birthday and she always made me feel special because of it.

Shredded Wheat I like the good old Original Biscuits. (Yes, the big ones without any frosting.) Does this cereal make me sound old?

Spanx A girl's best friend.

Silence I love peace and quiet. Did I mention that I have 5 children? I don't get much of it.

Sweets I have a sweet tooth. Actually I must have several because I don't think I could live without sugar. Especially chocolate.

Sisters I have four of them. We sing together. We hang out together. We tease each other. We share inside jokes. We laugh until it hurts. We know we can always count on one another. We all live close enough that we get together often. We are lucky blessed.

There. That's 11 things for "S". What about you? Want to play? You can even change the rules if you'd like. If you want to play, leave me a comment and I will assign you a letter. Have a happy weekend.

I was looking for "Sisters". You saved the best for last. Some day I may try Spanx. Just don't know if it's worth the $$. And can I take credit for your shredded wheat habit?

I'm thinking you're missing a very vital "S" item. I'm sure my picture will jog your memory.

I officially love you. The reasons are three-fold.

1. You like to break rules.

2. You are all about the sarcasm.

3. Great list.

Well done!

veronica said...

Sommer, Your letter is "T".

Sommer said...

Where did you get your cute "s"?

veronica said...

In my scrapbooking program "Memory Mixer 2".

I agree. Sisters are the best best best thing ever.
