Things I Learned Thursday

1) I've been tagged by Lin and that means that I have to post the tenth picture from the first folder. Here's my puppy dog, Sam, the one eyed wonder. He's the million dollar dog since he's costed me an arm and leg in vet bills.

2) Confidence is when you walk out the door and are standing in the checkout line at Walmart and you look down and discover you have two different shoes on your feet - one red shoe and one brown, yet, you hold your head up high like it was done on purpose. (Thanks TV Boo for teaching me that.)

3) Beauty can be found in your own backyard. While taking a walk on the trails by our house with Boo and Baby Boo, we took the time to really smell the flowers, listen to the birds and feel the gravel beneath our feet. It felt SO good!!

4) Two word, "I'm sorry" sometimes hold more weight than the words, "I love you".

5) I'm a crummy person. I don't know why but I create crumbs wherever I go. I can be eating the same meal as everyone else and I'm the only one with a mound of crumbs around my plate, on my clothes and face.

6) I can go into cardiac arrest faster than a monkey flings poop, if a bug crawls on me in the middle of the night.

7) According to Baby Boo, "spinach is gross" but chips dipped in ketchup is good." It tastes even better when singing, "There's a party in my tummy, so yummy, so yummy!"

8)I still get freaked out when I'm home alone. I have to sleep with a fan on so that I won't hear every imagineable noise in the house.

9) My friends are just a phone call away.

and last but the very best....

10) Boo and I are celebrating 2 years of being together. Falling in love again, the second time around is so much better than the first! He is the most loving, funny and often times, clueless guy I know but I wouldn't have it any other way. Just being together brings me a sense of contentment that I haven't felt in a long time. (Plus, I've learned to always keep a box of grits in the pantry just in case he needs reminding who the boss really is! :) I love that man!!!



What have you learned?

I did the shoe thing. One black, one white. Ran out, went to CVS and bought knock-off Croks to wear to work. Looked like a clown the rest of the shift in shoes that were a mile too long!

LOVE-- "spinach is gross" but chips dipped in ketchup is good." It tastes even better when singing, "There's a party in my tummy, so yummy, so yummy!" I know kids who do the ketchup thing!

Congrats on your 2 year milestone!!! Love is grand!

Lin said...

Congrats on the anniversary! How sweet that you found each other.

Love the photo--I didn't know that he was missing an eye. I thought he was winking at me!!

As for the bug crawling thing--mine is the cat hacking on the bed! I'm awake in an instant!

Justine said...

Happy 2 years to you and Boo!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ummm... what's the grits in the pantry thing all about?
Chips in ketchup? Now that is disgusting!

Justine :o )

@Justine - You don't know??? Black women don't play. Their men are the most loving, caring, sweet men because of the thought of hot grits being poured on them at 2 am. By the way, I've never had to use it but I hear that it continues to cook once it gets on the skin. All I have to say to Boo is, "Let me see if I have some grits in the pantry." and he's a sweetie pie all over again. LOL

Tenakim said...

love the list! Great, wise words and some intertesting facts about you!

What kind of dog is Sam? He looks like mine.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Sam is a shih tzu. But he is also very human like in his personality.

Angel said...

Well Sam is too much - adorable. And I'm going to have to agree with 'baby boo' ... chips dipped in ketchup is a DELIGHT!

Lilly said...

Oh what a great post. spinach is gross and chips dipped in ketchup are good. Oh yes I think that too! Aw glad things are going well for you and congrats on your 2 years. I hope you enjoy many more to come.

Tami said...

Every story I hear of Humble and Sam, cracks me up. He's ADORABLE! and #4 girl you hit the nail right on the head!

Ahhh! How cute that Sam is always winking! What a happy litte pooch!

Megryansmom said...

Happy Anniversary to you and Boo! Keeping that grits thing in the back of my head.

Number four is my favorite. It's a hard lesson to learn, but priceless. As for those shoes, my Grandmother told me when something like that happened (a bad haircut, a run her stockings) nobody but her knew she didn't plan it that way so if she didn't draw attention to it, no one else would either.

Beth Niquette said...

Happy PFF! Funny blog.

Mandala Michelle said...

Oh, what a sweet and funny post. And your dog looks so squeezable.

Julie said...

Veronica Lee said...
