No-Weigh Friday

Sleep was a long time coming last night and didn't stick around nearly long enough so I'm feeling tired this morning. I'm planning a fairly low key day today, so it's all good.

I've already been to the farm to pick up my milk. I don't think I will ever tire of hearing those chickens cooing and clucking on a Friday morning. And I spent a few minutes watching the piglets frolic in their pen, that cuteness is off the chart. They were sold out of eggs so I will have to do with the four left in my fridge. That's the nature of buying the freshest food, it may not always be available on demand but always worth the wait.

I'm still waiting for you to come forward with the top 5 things you love about yourself! Even if you don't share your list publicly, I hope you take the time to jot them down. Keep the list handy for days when you're feeling down on yourself, have a look at it to remind yourself that you are worth love and good care.

First Steps kindly presented me with this lovely blogger award. 1. Thank the person giving the award. 2. Share 7 things about yourself. 3. Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs. 4. Let your nominees know about the award.

Thanks a million to first steps for sharing this award with me. I will have to work on 3 and 4 because I haven't picked up any new blogs in the longest time. But I love my readers and share this award with each of you, come post your seven facts, I want to learn more about you!

As for the seven things about me, here are some offbeat facts that you may not know.
  1. I have just one sibling, my sister, Alyssa. She is my best friend in the whole world. I hate that we are separated by many states and I miss her every day.
  2. I collect wine corks. I have the corks from just about every bottle of wine I've opened since 1994.
  3. My husband and I met on the Internet in 1999, remember ICQ? That's where we found each other.
  4. I hate making the bed. In fact, I never make the bed unless I'm changing the linens. Rob makes the bed when he comes home from work. LOVE HIM!
  5. As a child I hated pickles and would scrape the cheese off my pizza. Now there can never be enough cheese and I LOVELOVELOVE pickled anything. The pickle-y-er, the better!
  6. I think that caller ID is the greatest invention of all time but loathe call waiting.
  7. I love Crocs. I own many pairs, some even sport Disney Jibbitz. My hot pink Mary Janes with Mickey and Minnie Jibbitz are my faves.
I won't be around much this weekend as I'll be at work. I'm off to the chiropractor now. Have a fantastic Friday!


  1. I have always loved cheese, but I still do not like pickles to this day. Funny, because I love cucumbers, but hate them in pickle form.

  2. No-Weigh Friday! 5 things I love about myself:
    #1. I love my smile - I know that when I smile at people it brings them joy which, in turn, brings me the same:)
    #2. I love my legs - wouldn't change them for the world!
    #3. I love my imagination - my imagination takes me more places, gives me more motivation, opens more new possibilities than anything!
    #4. I love my childlike attitude toward life! If you can't have fun, why bother with it all!
    #5. I love that I continually am bettering myself - even if that means doing nothing. Sometimes no action can be the best action.

    Love your blog, Andra! Read about it in Experience Life mag and was very excited to hear about your journey! May you continue on your path with bliss!


  3. I love your 5 things, Celeste! Thanks for stopping by. :)
