sharing the love

posted in: Inspirations, things I love | 0

Today, just because it’s summer, and sunny, and I’m happy, I’m thinking about things that I really like. The things that brighten my day, and provide inspiration. I always like reading post about things that people like, so I thought I would share.

It’s always good to share the love, right?

Let’s do 101 things. Ready? And here we go….(in no order of importance)

  1. Dogs. Large dogs. Dogs you can wrestle with and tackle. Not so much small yippy dogs that will be smushed if you were to accidentally step on them.
  2. Being barefoot.
  3. Skate shoes. I know this seems contradictory to #2, but if I MUST wear shoes, I want to be comfy. I despise wearing heels.
  4. Stealing the BF’s clothes. Any of them. All of them.
  5. Dark Chocolate.
  6. Freshly fallen snow. I actually LOVE snow. It’s the freezing cold temperatures associated with it I can’t stand.
  7. Fat Tire, Chocolate Stouts, Guinness, and other kinds of delicious yummy beers.
  8. Silver. Or white gold. Not really a fan of gold colored gold. Maybe because I’m super pale (practically translucent), and it really looks better on people that are not.
  9. Tattoos
  10. Driving with the windows down and a hand trailing in the breeze.
  11. Astronomy.
  12. The History Channel. I can be quite the nerd.
  13. Photography. The possibilites are so endless. I want to get really, really good at it.
  14. Prismacolor markers.
  15. My big butcher knife. I am spoiled to the point that I hate cutting and chopping things without it.
  16. The color blue. Electric Blue. It’s energy is compatible with mine in a way I just can’t explain.
  17. Mountains.
  18. Rings. My hands feel naked without them.
  19. Hot, HOT showers. Scalding hot. It’s fantastic.
  20. Punk music.
  21. Spices. I can spend an hour in a spice store…I kid you not. One is opening near my work. I’m screwed.
  22. Reading cookbooks. Cover to cover. Fantasizing about cooking fantastic things without any time or budget restrictions.
  23. Photoshop.
  24. Cinnamon jelly beans. Or Hot Tamales. Or atomic fireballs. They’re all pretty close to being the same candy.
  25. Sushi. With lots of wasabi. I could eat my body weight in sushi if I could afford it.
  26. Nail polish in any color but pink or red. I do have a red that’s so dark it’s almost black, and that’s pretty cool.
  27. Rum. Yummy.
  28. September light. Walk outside on any sunny September day and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
  29. Burt’s Bees chapstick.
  30. Dried pineapple. It’s as good as candy.
  31. Sundresses. I will wear dresses all the time in the summer. Almost never in the winter. (wanna know why? Because when you wear dressed in the summer you can wear open toed shoes)
  32. Big sunglasses.
  33. Eyeliner.
  34. The smell of citrus.

  41. Painting. Drawing. Sketching. Any kind of art.
  42. Creating. I am happiest when I’m making something, whether it’s cooking, drawing, decorating a room, etc…
  43. Kaliedeoscopes
  44. Mexican food. Especially enchiladas. And nachos. And burritos. I could eat it every day and not get sick of it.

  46. Swimming pools. Being in the water. Any water. As long as it’s not freezing.

  48. Brand new paintbrushes.
