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".
There is plenty I could say here, but due to time constraints, let's just say I do not deserve him.
See, I told you I love this letter.
I still have six more to share.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
