15 things I love right now

Katie has challenged us to write about 15 things we love right now. This took some thinking since this list changes frequently. But for now here are my top 15! (sorry for the novel! LOL!)

Number 1: This is definately my family! I am very close to my family and when we were home at Christmas we had a family picture taken. (all 18 of us!) My immediate family is at the right of the photo. (me, my DH, and my 3 boys)

Number 2: My Scraproom! I try to scrap in here at least once a day. In a housefull of boys this is my "girly" area that is all mine! I definately love this area. It is central to the downstairs area so I can scrap yet still be aware of what is happening around me!

Number 3: Alaska and the Great Outdoors! There is so much to see here. The scenery is AMAZING! We could camp every weekend and still not be able to see it all! I definately love ALASKA in the summer! Green everywhere and just beautiful!

Number 4: Harry Potter! Okay it's a silly pick I know but I am loving all the HP stuff going on right now!!! Just finished watching Movie 5 and loved it! My DH came home with the Harry Potter 5 Wii game and I have been playing that with my boys and it is a blast!! And this Saturday Harry Potter BOOK SEVEN is coming out!!! Very excited but also sad because it's the last book in the series. Can't wait to find out what happens. I will probably hibernate for a few days and read away!

Number 5: My Camera. I LOVE my Canon Digital Rebel. Love it! I have been learning so much more about it and have been getting better photos! I got a few attatchments for it and am just excited to play and learn!!!!

Number 6: My new car! Have had it a few weeks and it drives like a dream!! Love the gas mileage it gets.

Number 7: My Crocs! I have a pair of orange colored cros and I LOVE THEM! They are so comfortable!

Number 8: Have to throw my 2 favorite movies in here! "The Count of Monte Cristo" and a "Knights Tale". LOVE these movies! So I guess Number 8 would have to be my movie time!

Number 9: To go along with Number 8 I have a few TV shows I can't seem to live without! LOL!! RIght now I am watching - "So you think you can Dance" , "Big Brother 8" , "Hell's Kitchen", and "Pirate Master". Okay so that is more than a few but I enjoy watching them all!! I'm addicted to reality TV. I do only watch these shows during the day while I'm folding laundry or doing something else productive. Since I got my DVR I haven't watched TV in "live" mode in a while. I love that I can forward through all the commercials and record what I want so I don't miss my shows!! LOL! So in short Number 9 is all about my DVR!! (aka TiVO)

Number 10: Teaching! I love teaching at the Scrapbasket! (my Lss!) Teaching is so rewarding and I love meeting new people and helping others to preserve their memories! Here is my latest class. (teaching this in August!)

Number 11: Right now I love my CLEAN KITCHEN! (Thanks Val!!) Normally my kitchen is a mess. And for a FULL week now my kitchen has been SPOTLESS!!! I have a good kitchen routine going now and it is making me so happy! It is so fun to walk into the kitchen to make dinner and not have to do the dishes first or scrub the pot I need. It's great!

Number 12: My silly boys! I know I mentioned family earlier but I have to mention my boys again! They are so funny! Here is a fun picture of Tanner from his birthday party! He is such a hoot! And I have to post a layout of all three of them just CRAZY!

Number 13: I truly love my house! Love each and every room and pray that I can keep it clean and keep it a place my kids and husband can enjoy being! I love my yard and our little piece of woods!

Number 14: Orange/Vanilla Ice Cream Cones from Little Miller's! LOVE this ice cream cone flavor!! It is So yummy!!! I take the boys for a treat here at least once a week! YUM!!!

Number 15: SUMMER!! Love being outside! Love not having to wear a coat!! LOVE wearing sandals and shorts!!! LOVE the beauty the summer brings!! (on the flip side I am not fond of the winter at all!! Having grown up in Arizona and New Mexico, Alaska is really a change for me but in the summer I truly enjoy being here!

That was a bit harder to do than I thought it would be!! I am sure next week my 15 will change a bit but for now that's me at the moment!! Thanks for readin!

Oh I have to agree with the crocs. They definitely are the most confortable shoes out there. I have them in purple (pink, blue)and so want them in orange too. I want to go to alaska and when that day does arrive will be picking your brain for places to go camping. I am an RVer, I see you have a pop up trailer. Don't you just love camping?
