I decided go with the theme of Jen's blog at Marathons & Dog Tags, and participate in a 10 Things I Love and 10 Things I hate post.
I'm supposed to tag 10 other bloggers in it, but I'll just it open to all of you beautiful people!
10 Things I Love (with the exception of the obvious...Jesus, husband, & kids)
Working Out: I am extremely irritable and stressed out if I don't start my day off with my usual 2 hours at the gym.
Aggie Football: I grew up here in College Station, and Aggie football is just something that comes with the territory. I actually tried to "fight the Maroon and white" as a teenager trying to rebel, but my love for my hometown and hometown college won.
Going out to eat without the kids: I love those kids of mine, but I love eating in peace too.
Vacations: Nick and I just booked a vacation to Cancun on a whim for next month. We're celebrating his 32nd birthday and the end of summer session for college. Yay!
Apple products: Between our 2 Macbooks, our giant Mac desktop, ipads, Apple watch, and iPhones...I'm pretty sure the Romers keep Apple in business.
Painted toes: I can't remember the last time I haven't had polish on my toes.
Our current house: We have awesome neighbors, a giant deck outside for entertaining, and it's in an amazing neighborhood.
Kolaches: They're delicious pillows of bread with sausage or bacon or fruit....native to TX.
Pinot Grigio: Chilled, please...in a big wine glass.
Audiobooks: I listen to them while working out. Maybe it's a sign of growing older, but I prefer listening to books over music in the car and at the gym.
10 Things I Hate
Politics and Religion on Facebook: Although I've been guilty of it in my younger less formidable years, as a "grown up", I hate it. I love Facebook because I love seeing photos of my friends and their families. I love seeing pregnancy announcements, job promotions, milestones...I even don't mind people venting because they had a bad day on Facebook....I hate everything else.
Patriots football: Two things: Tom Brady & deflateagate. enough said.
Snow/cold: I've done enough complaining on this subject on this blog and on social media while living in New England. We'll leave it at that.
The world "moist": Huff Post did an entire article on the hatred of the word.
People who don't remove their shoes at my house: First of all, I am Asian. Asians take their shoes off when entering a home. EVERYONE knows this. I always feel all awkward asking people to remove their shoes, and I have painstakingly watched people trod through my house with shoes on because I wanted to be a "gracious host".
Wal Mart: Wal Mart scares me, and I've only been there twice in the last 3 years....dead serious.
People who drag their feet: Must be the Marine in me.
Kids with high and tights: Just why would you do this to your kid?!?!
Chain Restaurants: Living in Southern California turned me into a restaurant snob. Don't judge!
Road trips: Why drive when you can fly? That's my motto! I hate sitting in a car for long periods of time. HATE. I fly everywhere.
To be honest the "hate" list was hard to compile.
I'm in a good place in my life, and happy.
When you're happy, it's hard to find much hate in your life.
Happy 4th of July Weekend, y'all!
