Gimme a "C"!!!

Last week Last month Elaine over at The Miss Elaine~ous Life was passing out letters.

No, not the kind that come in your mailbox.

The kind in your ABC's.

Or your alphabet soup.

And if you were lucky enough to receive one, you were to make a list of ten of your favorite things that begin with that character.

After much begging and pleading, Elaine finally bestowed upon me a letter.


And I jumped up and down and burst into song.

"C is for cookie that's good enough for me..."

How ever did Miss Elaine know of my love for all things "C"?

In no particular order, my list of favorite "C" things:

I met, fell in love with and married a boy whose name starts with a "C".

1. Chad

There is plenty I could say here, but due to time constraints, let's just say I do not deserve him.

All of the other crazy people in my life My children also have "C" names.

2. Chase

3. Claire

4. Cole

See, I told you I love this letter.

I still have six more to share.

5. Cooking

I really do love to cook. I am not saying that I am great at it, but I love to be in the kitchen.

I even have a recipe blog Because Wendi Cooks Too!

I have started adding recipes to the site as I can remember to take photos.

Go. Browse around. Find something you like and make it for your family tonight.

6. Computers

Really...did I even need to tell you this?

I have already admitted my addiction.

The only thing that needs to be added is that my addictions may possibly have worsened.

My dear, sweet, husband surprised me last week with a new laptop.

I am head-over-heels in love with it.

7. Chocolate

Not even just the dark, good for you kind.

All of it.

Dark, milk chocolate, nuts and raisins drenched in it, white, cheap, expensive.

Just give it to me.

8. Coke

Of the diet variety.

I swore off all soft drinks a year and a half ago.

I didn't have any desire to drink it any more.

Until Thanksgiving.

I have no idea what happened, but I am guzzling Diet Coke again.

Why must it be so good?

9. Carrot Cake

Not just any carrot cake.

My mothers carrot cake.

I will have to post the recipe for all to share.

It is so incredibly delicious.

Your taste buds will thank you for weeks.

10. Cleaning and Conquering Clutter

You knew I couldn't write a post without allowing some of my OCD to come through.

I know admitting I enjoy cleaning and labeling could get me a lot of hate mail and nasty comments.

Please. be. gentle.

I don't mean I get all excited over scrubbing the toilet.

That I do not.

I just love the satisfaction it brings me when a closet, room, drawer, or shelf is clean and orderly.

I love being able to find something in an instant.

I love the pleasure I feel when labels are straight and facing out.

And ABC order is a given...right?

So there you have it.

My favorite "C" things.

What about you?

Would you like a letter?

I will gladly assign you one.

Just leave me a comment letting me know.

C'mon I promise it will be fun and painless!

* I need to add photos, but they are on my other computer. Check back later for photos.

Thanks for the reminder that I still haven't used my letter that Elaine bestowed upon me.
C is certainly your letter. Creative, cheerful, culinary, constantly on the run and in serious need of a CHAT with me.

Lauren in GA said...

C suits you!! I "C" why you love it. Booooo. that was bad, I know.

My letter is G...for Gestation. That's all I can handle....

Patrice said...

Wow! Lucky you that Elaine gave you your favorite letter! I have been thinking about doing this, but I'm afraid I won't be able to come up with anything!

duchess said...

U R Welcome 2 come to SC anytime 2 conquer my clutter.
(I tried to say it all with letters but it didn't work.)

McMommy said...

C is for clutter...that's good enough for me...ohhhh clutter, clutter, clutter starts with C!!!!!!

I'm a cluttered person. But one day, I will fly you to my house and we will re-organize everything and drink lots of Coke to celebrate!!!

Can I have a letter? This was fun!

I love your kids names.

Amy said...

That was fun! C is definitely your letter. I wanna play, too!

Elaine A. said...

I honestly had no idea how perfect "C" was for you. And you know I am totally with you on the chocolate and on the clutter conquering. Let's eat chocolate while we conquer, shall we?

Heather @ boy, girl, and a pug said...

How cute! I want a letter!

leah said...

oh, girl. you know i want one! i've been having writers block lately!!!

great, great post!!!

Carol said...

I'm so glad C was given to you, perfect!

Many of your fave C things are indeed mine too. I'll take chocolate any way it comes too. In fact the healthy dark kind is my least fave but I will eat it if nothing else is around.

A girl's got to live right?

Sue said...

You are very cute and creative with your letter C.
Laptops are great, i am using mine in my bed right now! Got to love a 2 hr school delay!

Stephanie said...

Those are great things for C! Makes me want a C! :) But I turned my C into a K (Karys).

Krystyn said...

You are totally a C! I have no idea what letter I would be.

Love your list...and you can come and clean any time!

Heather said...
