Love! Hate! Tag!

Can't wait to write this post!!  On Monday, I was tagged by Deena (one of my bloggy besties!) who blogs at Shoes to Shiraz for a Love//Hate//Tag post.  The rules are super simple!  Post 10 things I love, 10 I hate and then tag 10 more bloggers to do the same!  I hope you'll find a little something in here that helps you get to know me better, and maybe enjoy a laugh or two!  I've chosen to highlight the more obscure, fun things. If you've been reading the blog for any amount of time, you know my love of family, friends, my home, coffee...and drinks are a given!

So in no particular order:

1. Books  I love books.  New, real books.  I love the smell the newness and getting lost in a new read. 
Come back tomorrow for my Summer Reads List!!
2. Summer I get tan...enough said!

3. Country Music Who knew all those years ago when my dad brought his very first country CD (Reba: Greatest Hits Volume Two) that my entire family and I would be hooked on country music.  I love the stories told and that I can sing along to it.  I do agree that today's country is not the country of  long ago, but i like it all!!

4. Traveling I haven't done much traveling since I bought this house, but I do love it.  That's not to say I'm the best traveler in the world, but I like seeing new places and returning to destinations I've already been.  When I travel I like seeing sites but also enjoy the relaxation of it all too.

5. My bed It's not the biggest, but I love it.  It's super comfy!  And I swear, some nights when I get in it, I can actually hear my body saying Thank you!

6. Doing laundry Some might put this on the hate list, but I love it.  Or maybe it's just my washer and dryer that I love.  No, it's the laundry.  Sorting it, throwing in the pod and setting it!  And I get super excited when I hear the chime that it's done so I can fold it!

7. Sushi Maybe this one is a given too!  But sushi  I could honestly eat everyday!!

8. People Watching  LOVE, LOVE LOVE doing this!  I could do this all day!  I may also have a problem with listening in on people convos!  HA!

9. Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil  This is my 2015 love.  I discovered it on Sunset and Stilettos blog as a saver for winter skin!  This works awesome and now that I'm wearing shorts and dresses for summer, I can't live without it.  It's a bit on the pricey side but a little goes a long way!

10. Laughing I just love laughing...and I do it every single day!  Good day, bad day I can find a laugh or two or ten in there!!

Hate is a very strong here are some things I hate...


1. Bills Everybody hates bills right!?!?

2.  I'm getting over this little by little but I really like things my way.  And I like my schedule and things to stay the same.  If there is an expected change, I feel out of sorts! 

3. Mean People Some people are just mean, and unnecessarily so. Being mean is not cool.  Kindness doesn't cost a thing!!  Spread it around...  

4. Changing the sheets  I loathe doing this!!  LOATHE it!!  I don't know why but it takes me forever.  And it's inevitable that I start putting them on wrong...EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.  Ugh!!

5. Shopping {in the stores}  If you know me, you know I'm a diehard online shopper.  I haven't been in an actual store in so long.  And I think this fact makes me hate it even more.  I always get on the longest line, everyone's pawing the clothes, they never have my size, etc.  I love online shopping...I can always get great sales and find promo codes and I use EBATES...the best thing ever!

6. BUGS All of them...everywhere!

7. Getting up early when I don't have to I have this really bad habit of getting up earlier on the weekend than I do all week.  I hit the snooze but 187 times during the week

8. Getting a Peapod order, then realizing I forgot that ONE THING I REALLY NEEDED That is all!

9. Being so dependent on my device I really hate this, but I am.  When I forget my phone, it's like I'm missing something.  And lately I've been more dependent on it then ever since the battery in my watch died.  HA!!  Now that summer has arrived, and I don't need my phone as my alarm anymore, I'll be charging it out on the kitchen counter.  That way it's not the first thing I have to look at when I wake up.  

10. Winter Summer's my fave!  Winter...not so much.  I don't like the cold. And then the snow, the ice..ick!!  The fashion's not terrible though!  I can bundle up in cute sweaters and boots!  But make no mistake, that is the only upside.
