'P's & 'Q's

I joined in with Lisa at Oh Boy...Oh Boy...Oh Boy in a fun game. Lisa had to list 10 thing she loves that start with the letter 'M'. Then she picked the letter 'P' for me.

I'm just thankful she didn't pick 'Q'. I mean, how many queens and quilts can a person really love?

And so, in no particular order, things I love about 'P'. Wait, that didn't sound right. Things I love that start with 'P'.

1. Photographs. I love taking photos, especially of my kids, and I love looking at other people's photos. While my favorite subject is my kids, I find that I actually take better pictures of things in nature. Like these:

2. Pasta. Especially pasta covered in cheese and some sort of Italian sauce. Spaghetti. Lasagna. Baked Ziti. Fettuccine Alfredo. Etc. Etc. I could never do a no carb diet, and I have convinced myself that one day doctors will discover that not incorporating enough carbs into your diet causes some sort of dread disease, like, oh I don't know, impetigo or something.

3. Peanut Dust. That heavenly smell that floats through the air in South Georgia in the Fall.

4. Project Runway. I absolutely LOVE this show. I mean, seriously, gay men in a tizzy because they can't find their chiffon. What could be better than that?

5. Parenting. I had to find a way to work my kids in here. It's a hard job, but I do love beingtheir parent. And I love how my husband and I almost always agree on how to parent them.

6. Pages. Of books, that is. I love to read. It's a great escape, and I love getting wrapped up in a good book.

7. Pajama Mama. She's my best friend, and I love her to pieces. I don't know what I would do without her.

8. Pajamas. Spending a day at home, in my pj's with a good book, or a marathon of Top Chef or Project Runway, or a few good Lifetime movies. Heaven.

9. Pampering myself. It's not something I get to do often, but when I can get away with it, I love to be pampered. The best is going to get a professional massage, but almost anything will do. Just a long hot bath with a good book or magazine, a scented candle, and some yummy soap is great. Oh, that is if I can get away with it without the Princess wanting to come in, sit on the toilet and talk while I'm bathing.

10. Peace. Another thing I don't get often, but what could be better than a nice completely quiet (read no whining kids, no Disney channel, no little boy beating on his bedbug toy) peaceful evening? Maybe in my PJ's watching Project Runway?

If you would like to play along, leave me a comment, and I'll email you with the letter I choose for you!
