Who Do I Love And Why?

So our new blog challenge is to blog about: Who Do I Love and Why? Well I recently did a LO on my top 40 and I felt that it fit it, so I'll blog about that! Here's my top 40 (not in order of importance).

1. Fresh Snow: There is nothing like fresh snow. It looks innocence, pure, and so beautiful. It also symbolizes NO SCHOOL!

2. My Camera. I never go anywhere without it. I never want to remember the perfect moment that I missed. It is an extension of myself.

3. My Planner. Again, something I never go anywhere without. I am so busy and it helps keep my life organized!

4. Filipino Food. I love filipino food. It reminds me of my childhood.

5. Vanilla Tootsie Rolls. I love these things, they are my fave! You can get them by the bag at Christmas time!

6. Twang Beer Salt. Okay so this is this super sour salt that my stepdad found in Texas. I think it's meant to be used with alcohol, but I just like to eat it. When I was in boot camp, my stepdad would smuggle me this stuck in between the pages of letters!

7. My Computer. Well since I spend a lot of time on it, I must love it. I use it for school, to connect with family, to edit photos, to write.... the possibilities are endless!

8. Algebra/Math. Seriously, I love it. There's nothing like a good math problem to figure out!

9. Hot and Spicy Soup. I eat this constantly!!! I use to hate it, because it was too spicy. Gradually I started eating it over rice, now I can just eat the heck out of it! It reminds me of when I was stationed in Korea.

10. Making A's. Good grades are important to me. I have no idea why, but I have to excel, even knowing that in 20 years it is not going to matter that I had a 4.0. It will matter to me.

11. Converse Shoes. I love converse shoes. I have owned so many pairs! They remind me of being a teenage rocker girl (sort of).

12. Desperate Housewives. I totally love this show! It's like a soap opera on at night. It's a total smut show full of gossip and drama. The only time I enjoy some good old fashion "DRAMA" is on TV.

13. Friends. That's a given. Where would I be without all of the strong women that make my life more fun!

14. Margaritas. Yummy!

15. Dr. Seuss. I have no idea, but there is something about his rhyming that is just too much fun!I also love all his fun characters!

16. Nature. As an amatuer photographer, I spend a lot of time outside just taking pictures of the beauty or ugliness of Mother Earth.

17. Electronics. I love cool, new electronics. I must have them all. I have wasted so much money on crap that I just had to have...

18. Poker. There is nothing like a fun game of Texas Hold 'Em Poker!

19. XM Radio. I just got this, and I can always find something to listen to!

20. Photography. It's how I expect to leave a mark on the world. I WAS HERE!

21. Family. Another given. They are the most important thing in my life. Good or bad, I love them. They are another extension of myself.

22. Icees. Seriously I'm addicted. They have to be real icees. No slushies for me!

23. The color yellow. It is such a happy color!

24. The country. I love living in the country. I want to raise my child/children in a safe environment that embodies some of the morals that I believe in.

25. Cheesecake. I don't even have to add anything here.

26. Blue Ridge Parkway. This stretch of highway is so breathtaking.

27. South 21 Trout. Oh I am so hungry. I drove to Charlotte right after giving birth, a four hour trip, just for some of this trout!

28. Japanese Steakhouse. Filet Mignon and Shrimp.
29. Grey's Anatomy: I love, love, love this show. Everyone is HOT!
30. School. I enjoy being in school (for the most part). I enjoy learning!

31. Scrapbooking. It is my creative outlet.

32. Sobe Adrenaline. There are days I wouldn't have made it without this stuff!

33. Shopping. I am a firm believer in retail therapy. It works!

34. Bling. Shiny, glittery things are so much fun!

35. Movies. There is nothing better then snuggling on the couch with my honey and some popcorn!

36. Pepsi. I am an addict.

37. Coffee. Can't start my day without it!

38. Caramel apples. With nuts! I love these. I can eat a dozen in one sitting!

39. Scrapbook magazines. They help me out so much when I have large breaks of time with nothing to do!

40. Applie pie. with vanilla ice cream.

I know these are really not about who I love. There are many people I love.
My mom - she's my best friend, and my biggest cheerleader.
My honey - he's a great guy and a great father.
My son - wow, I just never knew I could love someone this much.
My mother in law - without her I'd be lost.
My stepfather - he's always there to give me some perspective, and correct me (something I need occasionally).

I have so much love for so many things! I guess this is why I got this really cool award from my blogging friend Carmen! Thanks so much, I love it when someone thinks enough of me to drop me an award!

Here are a few people that I believe spread love!
