Things that make me unnaturally excited....

Posted by Christina // 6 Replies

Since the last three days have been a whirlwind of squeals and happiness…I have started thinking about all the things that make me giddy in life.  Tim always says that one of his favorite things about me is how excited I get over the “little things” although he hates it when we are driving and I gasp over a sale at Pier 1 Imports.

I have to stop myself because I really could go on for days and days.  Tim’s list would probably just say:  stuffed pork chops, baseball, family, done.

Can I help it if I find joy in dang near anything.

Are you easily excitable?
Do you like line dancing?  I’ll do-si-do with ya.
What makes you giddy?

    Things that make me giddy: your love for each other, when I pull up your site to leave a comment and see there are new pins, soft cookies, someone doing the dishes for me, and inspiring someone. I could go on for days. But let’s talk about yours… skunks? Really Christina?!? When your blog gets massively popular (like soon because you’re awesome) and you need to get a PO box, you better believe I’ll be filling that thing with snail lovemail.

      Hahaha…yes for some reason everytime I smell a skunk I get all stupidly excited and start looking for it on the road and taking deep breaths! It’s so weird. I am not even sure I like the smell, I just like the detective work hahaha. I’m weird.

      We have talked about getting a P.O. Box just because it feels so strange giving our address out to anyone, I watch a few too many crime shows!!!

      The worst part is her dog stuff can break you! I have spent so much dang money on protable dog food bags, sweaters, leashes, water bowls….like Martha please make something I don’t need or you will be taking over my house soon!!!
