goodness gracious, it's finally done!

The always funny Heidi over at Sacred & Profane offered up a challenge to all of her readers (about a month ago). So, I decided to take her up on the challenge (um, about a month ago), and thought it would be fun.

That is, until she gave me the letter


I guess that's why I have taken about a month to figure out what I wanted to share (could it have something to do with my perfectionist ways...possibly). But when I finally thought about it, it wasn't as bad as I had made myself believe. I'm happy with my list. I guess you could say I'm just not a star Scattegories player who, when the dice rolls G, I beg for a re-roll. I suppose it could have been something worse like X, Y, or Z.

The challenge is simple (really, it is!). You leave a comment at the bottom of this post (leave your e-mail if you'd like). I will then give you a letter from the alphabet in which you are to post ten things you like that start with this letter and why.

And, in no particular order, except of course, the first one:

10 Things I Like...

God - it's rather a LOVE thing, more than just a like; He is my Rock, my Savior, and my Friend; without Him I have no purpose in this life He's blessed me with

Girlfriends - man, I have some great girlfriends, some that have stood the test of time, and some that are new and exciting, and both are amazing; I can definitely say I am truly blessed to have some incredible ladies in my life who have only made me a stronger friend, mom, wife, daughter, sister, and woman

Grandparents - not only all FOUR of my own who are no doubt leaving a legacy, but my children have some amazing grandparents of their own...I'm so lucky!

Gardening - oh wait, that's not really something I like necessarily, other than I envy those who have a love of gardening. I can barely keep my ONE house plant alive let alone a whole garden, but a girl can dream...

Gerbera Daisies - no, seriously. I got lucky on this one because they are my favorite simple, so beautiful

Grapes - my favorite fruit (well, second to strawberries); such an easy, healthy snack to take along with me!

Guacamole - more specifically, Baja Fresh guacamole...enough said, in my opinion

Grey's Anatomy - I wasn't an avid watcher from the start until a co-worker of Ryan's loaned us the first 2 or 3 seasons while I was pregnant with Mikayla (almost 3 years ago). I think I watched them all in one week! And, I was hooked, so I still watch it...thank goodness for DVR

Glue - otherwise known as Modge Podge...I realize this might be stretching it a little, but I have really been into crafty projects lately that use Modge Podge, and Modge Podge is glue...come on, give me a little grace! I'm running out of options!!

Gifts - I love giving gifts, way more than getting gifts! Actually, I love wrapping gifts almost as much as I love giving the gifts. There's something about honoring someone with the way you wrap their's just something I really enjoy doing

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

And, there my friends, are my top 10 things I like that start with G!

Don't worry, Heidi, I forgive you for challenging (torturing) me and will continue to come to your blog for some stress and comedic relief. You're awesome!

Are you up for the challenge? Leave me a comment and I'll give you a letter. Simple as that. And, trust me, you'll actually have fun doing it. But, no re-rolls, you hear?

Heidi, your post is great! I was tagged by a gal with the letter R. I am going to try to get that posted today. Barry had to help with things for the letter R. Enjoy your day!

I can't keep plants alive to save MY life, either. Gerbera Daisies are also MY favorite flower. Grapes are the only fruit I actually LIKE. Grey's Anatomy - *sigh* Did you SEE the previews for next week when Derek and Mark get into a *fist fight*?!?! *gasp* I can't wait to see what that is all about.

Yay! I 'm glad you finally got it done. :-) Thanks for playing!

Kelli said...

I'd like a letter, this looks fun. I commented on another post so I wanted to play along correctly and comment here.

Katie said...

So..I have been hesitant to take a letter b/c of my nervousness about follow through, but being the "Listmaker" I guess I should be up for the challenge. Assign me a letter please!@

Shelby said...

I would love to play, could I have a letter Vanna?

Shelby said...

I posted my list of my favorite N words. Stop by when you have a chance! Thanks for the challenge, I hope others play along on my blog. :)
