Oh Gee...

I was catching up on Gretchen's blog this afternoon and saw this fun meme. I feel like all I've been posting about lately are meals and money and thought this would be a fun break from those themes.

Here's the deal:
If you want to play, leave a comment on this post letting me know, and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on...

Gretchen gave me the letter "G".

1. Guacamole. Mmmmmmm...I could make a meal of it.
2. Girls' Night Out! It's even better when it's with my Summit Sisters!

3. Google! I love so many of the Google apps, but Gmail is my favorite! Not loving Google reader so much these days because it always reminds me how behind I am on blog reading. Just so you know--I have too many unread posts in my reader. Again.

4. Grosgrain ribbon. I seem to have a fetish for it. I have crazy amounts of ribbon--mostly grosgrain. Stripes, gingham, polka dots, and solids. I use it for lots of things and it just makes me happy.
5. Green. I love almost every shade but apple green is my favorite. Olive green would be a close second. 

I found this piece of wallpaper the other day when I was cleaning out a closet. It's from my kitchen in Arkadelphia, and I still adore it--such lovely shades of green!

6. Gifts. I really enjoy giving them, though receiving them is fun too!

7. Gingerbread coffee from Trader Joe's. This can was a gift from my friend, Jamie. It is SO good. (I have an unhealthy obsession with TJ's these days.) The smell is heavenly. Aromatherapy in a can.
8. Gretchen. I was so disappointed that I didn't get to meet her when she and her family were here in November. One of these days, friend, one of these days... 

9. Games. Our family loves games. We've played lots of Uno and Set lately, but I'm a big fan of Blokus, Scattergories, A-Z, Outburst, Catchphrase, and Cadoo. Oh, and Yahtzee. (And about a dozen or so more.)

10. Granola. Yeah, I'm one of those crunchy, Colorado health nuts.

(Yes, I'm aware that I left God off of my list. I thought you guys would understand that He's a given.)

Let me know if you want to play along and I'll assign a letter to you! (If you comment and don't hear back from me in your inbox...check the comments on this post. I STILL can't reply to some of you directly because your email isn't linked to your Blogger profile). (Ya'll are going to make me start naming names, aren't you?) *wink wink*

If you hate those letters, you're free to change. I'm not a legalist.

I'm too food-centric as well. Tag me. And I finally got a google account... I'm the one formerly known as carpoolqueen.

I want to play a game! Lay a letter on me, Mer! (edith, in case you don't like to be called "Mer").

I hope I'm not one of the ones you're winking at but I'm not sure.

I'm so glad you like the coffee! And just think, a whole can for the price of 2 Starbucks lattes!

It has such a good flavor, I usually just drink it w/half and half and not flavored creamer.

Ok, no more talk of TJ's. It's sending me to a bad place.

Gretchen said...

You made it look easy, peasy, lemon squeazy, Mer. And you were ever so sweet to make me a list item. I wouldn't have thought of that. :)

Gretchen said...

And BTW: lurrve TJs coffee and guac, and grosgrain ribbon.

Christen said...
