LOVE, HATE, TAG





I was blessed to have beautiful Amanda from Anchored to Sunshine invite me to do this fun challenge.
The rules to Love, Hate, Tag are simple: the person “tagged” must share 10 things they love, 10 things they hate, and then nominate up to 10 other bloggers to do the same! It’s a great way to get to know others (and yourself actually).
At first, much like Amanda, I was shocked at how hard it was to get started… then I was even more shocked with how my list grew and grew and I started to think I could list a hundred things but you'd get bored with that. Ha!

Finally I narrowed it down to 10 loves and 10 hates :) and tagged a few bloggers I’m intrigued to find out more about!
LOVE


1. Flowers - Especially roses and the ones I put in the dirt myself. As you saw from a post I did HERE that I love picking posies! There’s nothing like a deck and porch full of flowers in the summer.



2. Getting packages in the mail - Literally my heart skips a beat when I see a package on the front porch or in the mailbox!

3. Laying in the sun - and drinking a frozen concoction.

4. Music, all kinds - and My top five singers: Pitbull, Barry Manilow, Iggy Azalea, Bon Jovi and Cole Swindell (Love that we got front row tix to his concert in July)

5. Interior Decorating - Especially watching the transformations on HGTV.

6. WATER - of any kind; drinking it, lakes, pools, creeks, oceans, streams, puddles. I love water!

7. Fresh berries - Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries. Good antioxidants and yummy so I eat a cup of berries every day!


8. Notre Dame Football! Go IRISH!!

9. Exercising - Especially walking and ab work. (and I love sweets thus part of reason why I exercise.)

10 Hugs - Giving and receiving them. Especially from my husband, kids, mom and friends.


HATE
  
1. When people do not smile back - or say hello back when you smile at them.

2. Sickness - especially Cancers and terminal illnesses.

3. Bugs - stuck on the grille of my car.

4. Tornadoes - Deathly afraid of them. We live in Tornado Alley and I panic every time the sirens go off.

5. When people think they are entitled to things in life - Hey, work hard for things and be appreciative like the rest of us!!

6. Waiting in line - Especially when there are several, like at the grocery store, airport or bank. It never fails, I get in the wrong line, by that I mean the slowest line.....every.single.time!



7. When people talk behind others backs. If it is done out of love, fine, but to be derogatory, judgmental and catty, is just rude

8. Wind - I have this silly saying "Wind is NOT My Friend!" Nothing good comes from wind. Messes up your hair, makes my eyes water, knocks stuff over outside, blows table cloths and paper plates off picnic tables, spreads pollen and cotton wood around. A nice breeze; sure, but anything over 20 mph, forget about it!


9. Humidity - This eCard says it all. Imagine when its high winds and high humidity together? This girl is a mess. Ha! 

10. Automatic Car washes - I have mentioned my fear of these on the Blog before and while I love to have a clean car and just read in the paper today that car washes are better than washing your car at home, for our environment ya know, I still get worked up on my way there. Breath, Andrea, just breathe!! :)
