Seven Things I Love Today

My new favorite show of the season, "Glee" is over-the-top, campy, exagerrated and--oh yeah!--it has awesome music (and lots of great-looking characters!). I'm totally hooked on this show, and am now proudly calling myself a Gleek (Glee + geek = Gleek.) In fact, I may ask Gary for this shirt for Christmas...
College football

The Alabama-Tennessee game last week just about drove me crazy (I was sitting down in my seat, with my eyes closed and my fingers stuffing my ears so I couldn't see or hear what was happening; I was a wimp and paid for it by not seeing the blocked kick Alabama pulled off to win the game!). I love this time of year!


Another new television favorite, although it's not new at all--just new to me. I discovered it on Hulu (another one of my favorite things) and have now gone back and caught it on tv. I love the premise, and the characters, and the clever writing.

We had Bunco last night and it's always a wonderful night to look forward to. (It also helped that it was Halloween Bunco. Another excellent reason to dress up in costume!)

My new favorite cake recipe

I've been making a lot of cupcakes lately and my new favorite, "go to" recipe is THIS ONE from my favorite foodie blog (Bakerella.com). It has two sticks of butter, and a ton of sugar, and eggs, and vanilla. No wonder it is so delicous!

Writing assignments

In just the last two weeks, I've written articles about teaching your kids to be thankful; making cupcakes for birthday celebrations; and incorporating spiritual activities into Easter activities with teenagers. Getting assignments has gotten harder as the economy has struggled, so I feel lucky when I get the chance to write something for magazine editors. I'm just keeping my fingers that more will be on the way!


I love Halloween...the dressing up, the trick-or-treating (or trunk-or-treating), the candy eating, act-like-little-kids-again feelings. I've got several Halloween events to look forward to--at church, with friends, and with family--and I've got my costume all ready to go (I'm going as a Flapper!). I also can't wait to see the girls all dressed up; I've got a robot (McKenna), and 80s girl (Delaney), and a witch (Sydney). Fun, fun, fun all the way around!

What do you love right now?

My husband and I love musicals, so we're Glee fans. Even though it's tawdry and naughty, I lurve MadMen, too, because of the clothes, the brilliantly written characters, and the acting. Also, Jon Hamm is so not hard on the eyes.

I grew up where snow in Sept and Oct was not unusual, so for me, I love seeing all the rich colors of fall even into November.

And I'd REALLY love...to know how you stay so slender given your propensity to love all things cake. :0)
