The Simple Things ABCs

by Glenneth on July 14, 2012

Good morning! I have seen this post on Best Body Fitness, A Foodie Stays Fit, and Carrots ‘n’ Cake. I thought I would play along. Let’s talk about the Simple Things from A-Z.

A – Almonds! One of my favorite go-to snacks. I buy huge jars of these. A small handful is perfect when you get hungry! They are also very easy to carry. Throw some into a snack bag and put in your purse.

B – Blogs! I love reading blogs! They are full of beautiful photos and fun ideas. I am always finding new ones to read. Share your blog in the comments so I can add it to my Google Reader.

C – Cheese! My hubby teases me about how much I love cheese. Lately I love Blue Brie.

D – Dachshund! One of the cuties breeds of dogs around! We had 3 during my life.

E – ELMO! You know how much I love the little red monster.

F – Family & Friends! What more can I say. I love my family and I have the best friends in the world.

G – Google! I use Google search, Gmail, Google Reader daily!

H – Hive Fives! My favorite munchkin LOVES to give high fives!

I – iPhone/iPad! These may not be “simple” or even cheap, but I use them both daily.

J – Jack-o-Lantern! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love to decorate my front porch with Jack-O-Lanterns!

K – Kindle! I use the Kindle app almost exclusively for reading books.

L – Lotion! I have to put on hand lotion multiple times per day.

M – Mom! I have the best Mom ever!

N – Naps! Sometimes a quick (or long) nap can be exactly what your body needs.

O – Office Supplies! As a child they were called school supplies, now I can them office supplies. Either way, love buying new pens, post-its, notebooks, etc.

P – Pinterest! I love looking at the pictures and motivational sayings.

Q – Quilts! I have a ton of quilts throughout the house. They are so soft and snuggly.

R – Reality TV! Specifically Survivor and Amazing Race! Two of my favorite shows.

S – Stir Fry Cafe! One of our go-to restaurants in town. Their dish ‘S’picy Noodles is one of my all time favorites.

T – Thirty-One! I love being a part of this company and am looking forward to national conference.

U – Umbrellas! With the rain we have been having this week, mine has stayed close by.

V – Vacations! The theme for the week is BEACH TRIP!

W – Walking! The most simple and easy form of exercise. It is free and you can pretty much do it anywhere.

X – boX! Okay, I cheated on this one. I love when boXes appear at the front door!

Y – Yellow! The color of the sun! I am hoping we see the sun today!

Z – ZZZZzzzzzz! Sleep! A good night’s sleep will leave you refreshed and ready to start your day!

Yes yes yes to iPhone and Kindle! And yes to vacations too, of course :)

Thanks Leah! Love having the Kindle app on my iPhone. If I have to wait, just “pull out” a book and read. No need to carry massive amounts of books around.

I had not heard of this post idea but enjoyed it. You zipped through the alphabet with fun, concise entries that were fun to read. And boXes deserved a little cheating, eh? Like you, I really enjoy shopping for new office or school supplies.

Thanks Kymberly! I love when back to school time rolls around so I can look at all the cool new supplies!

Thanks Tara! Some letters were kind of hard. Especially X!

I am an absolute blog addict on discovered blogs about 6 months ago and can’t stop. I love that you M is mom. My mom is pretty much my best friend and the coolest lady I know. (Don’t tell her that, it’d go to her head.)
