Tuesday's Love and I'm Better Off Without Lists...

Love List...
  • A great antique find for my kitchen.  It may not be worth much (I have no idea and I don't care), but it is the perfect cookie jar for my kitchen.  I'm sure the cookies taste better out of this adorable and sunny container.  Guess I gotta make some soon.  For now, I put some oatmeal creme pies in there.  Thank you, Little Debbie.
  • Watching Jillian swing.  She is fearless and such a good pumper.  It is probably silly how excited I get to see her flying higher and higher on her own!
  • These shoes.  I don't like my love list to be filled with "things," but seriously!  How could these not make the list?!?  My mom took a chance and got me shoes for my birthday.  Good decision.
  • Succulents.  They are gorgeous and take so little care.  A tiny bit of water once in a while when you think of problem.
  • Myles was singing a jingle today at dinner under his breath, "Nationwide is not on your side...AAA is."  Where does he come up with this stuff?
  • A relaxing birthday laying on the beach, watching Myles and Jillian having so much fun with some little friends they made in the water.  Perfection.
  • Myles' commentary about the Olympics.  Every event is something he is "going to do when he is 25!"  I'm glad he's got that American spirit.
  • Eating dinner at a little restaurant in South Haven, Michigan with live music and huge smiling faces from all four of us.  Every time the guy played a Grateful Dead song, Ben sent Myles up to put a dollar in the tip jar.
  • Myles teaching Jillian how to get better on her big girl bike (the pedals are really far for her to reach).  She took his advice and it worked.  She was so proud.  Of course, she was ringing her princess bike bell the whole time.

I'm Better Off Without List...
  • This bug.  Just as a frame of reference...that tread in the dirt is a tire tread.  A car tire tread.  HUGE!  My coworkers had me convinced that he (and all of his friends) was eating my foundation or was planning an attack on my children to send them to the hospital.  Turns out they do attack...cicadas.  Thank goodness for Google images.
  • The steepest hill on my five-mile route.  It is long...and steep...and has a super stinky cow farm at the top of the hill.  What a reward for getting to the top!  Moooooo.
