THE Fabulous Monday Post

In honor of LOVE month, some things that I love:

I love:

  • to be right. Now some you may be thinking, 'that's not the Katie I know', but it's true.
  • clean kids, and then putting them in their warm, flannel sheets for bed, in the evening of course....sometimes I want to do it in the morning though.
  • to read. I'm starting this new idea where I try to know as little about a book as I can before I start it. It's really fun.
  • surprises. However, I find it's even MORE fun, if that's possible, to successfully pull off a surprise for someone else.
  • to eat. And I'm good at it, darn it.
  • meeting new people.
  • hot chocolate.
  • back rubs....if there's a certain someone reading this, this is what's called a hint.
  • when people say funny things. You know, those people who say things like, 'I hate bad drivers', like they've just shaken the foundation of a belief system. The only people who like bad drivers are their mothers.
  • commercials where people dance, especially the dorky, I-hope-no-one-is-looking dancing.
  • beating someone out of the blocks at a stop light. And trust me, I look really cool doing it in my dirty mini-van with three kids in the back seat listening to Old McDonald.
  • that my kids love ABBA.
  • a clean house. (By the way, this is one of those funny things people say, I mean, who really loves a dirty house, or is only neutral about a clean house?)
  • new clothes that I bought on sale and I look fabulous wearing, that last part goes with out saying, I'm sure.

Happy February!



  1. i LOVE it. :) I'm going to have to try the book idea, I've never read a book without researching it first. Maybe I'll just walk into Borders and pick one out with a good cover...hmmmmm?

  2. I had to laugh at the beating people out of the blocks. I do the exact same thing. I especially feel great if I beat the sportscar out in my dirty 11-year-old mom van.
